**I have broken down the cemetery into four parts and split these parts into sections.  I have tried to write down exactly what was on the graves and headstones and sometime short descriptions of the area

 Part 1 is the oldest part of the cemetery.  The oldest marked grave is the grave of Allie H. Dees, who was buried in November 1862.  There are many unknown/unmarked graves in this area.

Part 2 is the area  right of the front gate.  Most of this area has fences and low cement walls marking off family plots.

Part 3 is the area in the middle of the cemetery.  There are also fences and low cement walls marking off family plots.

Part 4 is the area directly to the left of the front gate and following fence line all the way to the back of the cemetery to the Memorial of the Confederate Dead.

Any information leading to identifying these graves will be helpful.  If you know of someone that was buried in this cemetery but have no idea where, that information is also helpful.  Contact me at PO Box 5, Shubuta, MS 39360
