Yellow Fever Cemetery
Grenada, Grenada County, Mississippi

Contributed by Christie Crouch Genola, December 1999 [cgenola@dixie-net.com]. Total records = 140.


The Yellow Fever Cemetery is located in Grenada County, in the town of Grenada, Mississippi, on 2nd street, east of the railroad tracks. The cemetery information was first copied in 1960 at which time no one was responsible for the upkeep of the area and the markers were rapidly disappearing. The Pilot Club of Grenada adopted the restoration and care of the historic cemetery as a community service. In 1986, the records copied in 1960 were rechecked. Some of the markers found in 1960 had disappeared in 1986. Both list were combined. The information was copied by Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Martin. (Date unknown, probable 1960).

The Cemetery is locally known as the Yellow Fever Cemetery, however it was used prior to the epidemic of 1878.

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.
