Traveling south on highway 63 from Leakesville, Mississippi, you will go south about 5 miles and cross under the new Highway 63 By-Pass. Just as you pass this intersection there will be a saw mill on your right and across from this saw mill is New Providence Cemetery. The cemetery is located on one of the highest points in this area, overlooking many acres of timberland.

The cemetery belongs to New Providence Church and is maintained by the members of the church as well as family members of those buried here. There is a chain link fence surrounding the cemetery and it is in good condition. There are several unmarked graves in the cemetery.

I walked this cemetery on Apr 13, 2007. All information was gathered 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.
