Lenoir Cemetery


Lenoir Cemetery is located at near Barlow (Copiah Co.) Mississippi, on Warren Hood Road, 1/10 mile from the intersection with Old Port Gibson Road (MS 548). Thirty-one gravestones have been identified. In addition, there are a number of depressions, indicating additional graves. Red and Audrey V. Hudson, of Vidor, Texas, maintained the cemetery for a number of years. However, because of advancing age and health reasons, they are no longer able to visit the cemetery. The cemetery is located in a stand of hardwoods, but there are a number of small pine seedlings growing there also.
