Take Highway 26 west out of Lucedale, Mississippi and you will cross over the Highway 63 by-pass, continue west on Highway 26 for another 2.3 miles. Here you will turn left onto Central-Basin Road and go south another 7.3 miles. The Gibson cemetery will be on your right at the top of a small hill. This is south of Basin MS about one mile on River Road.

It is surrounded by a chain link fence and was in very good condition. The cemetery is owned and maintained by family members of those buried there. There was one Spanish American War Veteran, (John Nyman), in this cemetery.

There were several unmarked graves in the cemetery which was established in 1877. There is a large Magnolia tree in the center of the cemetery. I was told by Mrs. Judy Goff that the story is that there was a Mr. Dave Gibson buried there and then the Magnolia tree planted at the head of the grave. No marker was ever placed there, but Mrs. Goff stated that they were going to place a marker there in memory of Mr. Gibson.

I walked this cemetery on Dec 10, 2007, and the information was gathered using all existing and legible headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.

A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

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.
