Anderson Jackson Sr. Memorial Cemetery, Preston, Kemper, MS
Read 3 Mar 2003 by Bonnie Evans.

The cemetery is on Hwy. 21, 3.3 miles west of Hwy. 397 at Preston, Kemper, Mississippi, located in T12N, R10E, S8. It is next to Oak Grove M.B. Church, but not associated with it.
There are a number of blank funeral home markers, and the tombstone of one grave has tumbled off its base, and base and stone into the sinking grave. Where I have listed a name in parentheses following a date, that indicates a shared stone with that person (where indicated as blank, there was a double stone but with nothing engraved on the opposite side). Blank date areas on stones are indicated in the list as blank, and listings with only one date or portion of a date, that is all that is on the tombstone. Names are transcribed as spelled on the tombstone. Details in quotation marks indicate information actually on the tombstone itself or on an additional military stone. Questionable letters or numbers are marked with a question mark and any illegible number or letter is indicated by an underlined blank. I do not transcribe community service symbols as there are many, and, not knowing what every one stands for, I do not want to give anyone incorrect information by wrongly assuming an organizations name, neither do I attempt to complete military service abbreviations. Though I also do not transcribe Bible verses, poems, etc. from stones, I do add any family relationship which is shown. Any other information not on actual tombstones, but shown on funeral home markers, obtained on family interviews, etc., and which may clarify names or relationships is added in brackets.
