Inscriptions recorded September 1982 by McRae Limerick. Typed by Marsha Bryant. Used by permission.

On November 5, 2004 Janice Freeman and Mary Thoeni visited cemeteries in the DeKalb, MS area. While we did not have time to photograph the entire cemetery, we did photograph a significant part of it -- individuals we were able to identify as related by blood and/or marriage to the McDade family.
