Ford Cemetery
Moss Point, Jackson County, Mississippi

T8S R5W Sec 19

Submitted by Leslie Nutbrown, Jan 16, 2006 [leslienutbrown@hotmail.com]. Total records = 208.

In Moss Point, from I-10 take Route 63 South. You will see an overpass in the distance. Just before reaching the overpass, take the last street on the right which is called Goodhope Street. (there was no street sign at this junction during the time of our visit) The cemetery is a short distance on your left.

This cemetery is not in the best of shape. It suffered flood damage from hurricanes in 2005. The fence is in need of repair and it is generally untidy at the time of our visit.

I believe this is an African American cemetery. While we were there, a custodian came by and told us it was the Ford Cemetery, although there is no sign and there are no Ford tombstones. So how it got it's name I do not know. There are quite a few graves with either lost or missing plaques or identification markers. I know nothing further about this cemetery as I am not from the area.

Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery in January of 2006.
