Contributed by James Trussell, Jan 11, 2008, last edited Feb 06, 2008 [carverofwood1260@wmconnect.com].  Total records = 118.

To reach cemetery from Agricola, Mississippi, from Agricola Baptist Church, take Highway 613 south for 4.8 miles south. Turn right onto Movella Church Road and continue to the cemetery and church, which will be on your left or south side of the road.

The original cemetery is located beside the church. They have a new section started across the road from the church. To date there are 116 marked graves in the old section and only 2 in the new section. I will note those buried in the new section. Both sections are surrounded by chain link fences and are in good shape.

This is a complete reading up to Dec 31, 2007, of all legible temporary grave markers and headstone inscriptions. I did not list the graves of those that did not have a recorded death date.

cemetery records

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.
