Traveling south from Lucedale, Mississippi on highway 63 you will go 4.8 mile where you will find the intersection with highway 63 four lane by-pass. Take a left turn onto highway 63 south and continue on it for 6.0 miles. Here you will come to Barton/Agricola road, take a left hand turn and go onto Barton/Agricola road for 1.4 mile and the cemetery will be on your left.

There is a new chain link fence across the front and a short ways down both sides of the cemetery. The cemetery is overgrown with grass and weeds and many graves need maintenance done to them. There were many unmarked graves and others the slabs were deteriorated to the point no information was readable. Some clearing of brush and trees and the new fence indicates maintenance has been started and hopefully will be completed in the near future.

II was given permission to walk this cemetery on Apr 26, 2007 by Mr. Solly Cowan, and all information was taken from headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
