Cooley Cemetery
Vernal, Greene County, Mississippi

Contributed by James Trussell, Dec 02, 2007 [carverofwood1260@wmconnect.com].  Total records = 38.

Leaving Leakesville, Mississippi on highway 63 south, you will travel 2.3 tenths of a mile. Here you will take a right turn onto Vernal River Road, heading west. You will now travel 8.9 tenths of a mile and there will be a woods road to the right (not named) that will separate a field from the woods. The cemetery is located .2 tenths of a mile on the left side of this woods road.

The cemetery is in good shape and is surrounded by a chain link fence. This is an old family cemetery, with maintenance being done by a few of the members of the families of those buried here. There are several unmarked graves in the cemetery and all information was taken from headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers.

The oldest marked grave has a death date of 1899, and there is also one known Civil War Veteran buried here.

I walked this cemetery on Apr 13, 2007 and the information was taken from headstone inscriptions.

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.
