Northeast of Columbia in the Improve Community of Columbia, MS

This is an inactive cemetery and is on property owned by Ms Voncille Stringer. It was originally the Morris Cemetery, on Morris land in 1862 with Winston Morris. One of his daughters married a Stringer and they now have there own community there. It was called Morris-Stringer for years and now shortened to Stringer, not because of the occupants, but because of location.

This cemetery does contain unmarked graves. Also, at some point two of the markers were stolen from the cemetery, leaving only the bases behind.

This listing was made, Sep 24, 2001, when I visited the "Old Stringer Cemetery" and copied all the headstones, then transcribed from those readings.

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.
