To reach Pisgah Cemetery from Water Valley, Mississippi, travel south on Hwy 7, and turn right onto CR90. Go to junction of CR 91 after Bethlehem and Mount Gilead Churches. Proceed onto CR 91, past the landfill for about 3 miles. Cemetery will be on the south/left side of road.

The cemetery is in good shape and is well maintained. There is a sign near the road and is surrounded by chain link fencing. There have been a couple of stones that have been damaged by storm, funeral home trucks, and time, and there were at least 18 unknowns, such as unmarked burial sites or field stones with no information on them.

This cemetery was built on property donated by my great grandfather, John Henry Few. At the time of its inception, there was standing here, the Pisgah Methodist Church. However, sometime before 1936 the church stopped being attended. A Methodist body from Coffeeville came in, dismantled the church and carried off all of the materials.

The cemetery remained and has been used to this day. It has been maintained by James and Sarah Few McNatt. Improvements of the sign and fencing was done by them and my father Charles Few and his sister, Ernestine Wood.

John Adams, Audra Hardaway and I did a complete survey of this cemetery on Apr 28, 2006. I completed the transcription from these notes on May 09, 2006.

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.
