Beech Springs Cemetery

If you have any additions, corrections or the cemetery list, please contact the County Coordinator. When you submit names, please submit them in the format below.

As an added note, at Beech Springs, there are actually two cemeteries. There is the one that is confined inside the cemetery fence where most of the graves are located. Outside the fence and to the west along a small creek that runs through the land are some other graves. I am told that these that this was a black cemetery. I do not know if it was officially part of the church or not. There are a dozen or more graves there, most of which, bear the name of Vivarette. This name dates back through the 1850 Neshoba Co. Census listings. Some of the graves have been submerged as the creek floods the low areas but most of the headstones can still be read. I thought this might eliminate confusion should a question arise. In the main cemetery, there are also a considerable number of graves that now have only rocks for headstones....many are my relatives, I believe. Wayne Brown
