Brown Chapel Cemetary, Smithdale, MS

I recently took a trip to the place where most of my ancestors were born and died. My ggrandfather, who was a slave, is buried in this cemetary. I found my grandfather's tombstone he was buried in 1953, but did not find my father and 2 brothers buried in in 1961 and 196. My paternal ggrandfather and descendants were members of Mt. Salem AME church, which is still active. I don't believe Brown Chapel (Baptist) church is active. There are no signs on the premises. There must have been some agreement to bury members of Mt. Salem in Brown Chapel cemetary. Any suggestions for contacts re: layout of gravesites?
