Old Wheats Cemetery
Crossroads, Pearl River County, Mississippi

Lat: 30° 47' 59"N, Lon: 89° 46' 42"W

Contributed by Earl Alexander, May 12, 2004 [dukerl42@bellsouth.net].  Total records = 18.

The cemetery is located 1 (one) mile north of Hiway 26 on Hiway 43 in Pearl River county, MS. There is a sign by side of Hiway 43 identifing it as Old Wheats Cemetery. It is 2/10 mile west of the road.

The cemetery is fenced in and could use a good cleanup. I'm not sure when it was established. I understand it is available only for Wheat family inside the fenced area. I did not see any markers outside the fence.

The first burial listed is in 1842 and there are no burials with markers since 1910. There may be several unmarked graves. There is at least one marker I could not decipher, which was lying flat on ground.

This is a complete list of all visible and legible markers. It was compiled by my wife Nelli and I on 11 May 2004.

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.
