Church's and Cemeteries of Carroll County, Mississippi
Location: I found the cemetery listed under
Montgomery county, as it is associated with the Pine Bluff Baptist Church
area. From Winona ate 407 east approximately 10 miles. Take a right on Seymore
road and stay on Seymore for about 3 miles until you reach Pine Bluff Baptist
Church. Take a right on Ferguson Road (may not be marked as such). Stay to the
left, approximately 1/2 mile there will be a fork, but stay left. Continue on
the road, as it becomes Carroll County Rd 6 and then take a Left , at the T
junction of County Road 8. Go down this road, and look for a house on the
right, a white farm house, nicely kept, the E.L. Pullens house. Stop the car
in front of the house on the right. To the left is a wooded hill. There is a
path, alongside the pasture adjacent to the wooded hill. Go up the path and
you will go into a wooded area. Walk about 5-10 minutes. Look to the left,
about 50 feet or so from the path, you might notice some gravestones, but you
will have to look hard. Walk off the path, and you will notice a barbed wire
fence surrounding the old graveyard. As you might imagine, it has become overgrown
in woods. The cemetery appears to date from after the civil war up until the
early 1900's. Surnames on gravestones include Mathews, Ferguson, Garner
among others. Many surnames listed on the Census of 1870, (township 17, range
6, page 259) are same as in this cemetery. There are unmarked graves,
including a small section surrounded by an wrought iron fence, with no
markings inside. Also, the Pine Bluff Cemetery at Pine Bluff Baptist church
had similar surnames. I surmise it was it's predecessor in that community. I hope this information is helpful to someone.
