Church's and Cemeteries of Carroll County, Mississippi


Minyard or Blow Cemetery

Location: On east bank of old roadway south of the branch that runs through the old Bill Tingle place. New road is now west of old. A number of cedar trees mark the burying ground.

Copied by: Edna & B.F. Johnson, Lloyd Carpenter & Ethel Bibus on Oct. 12, 1980

Note: Mr. Verge Mann, age 94, says that in this cemetery is buried Charles Curren Johnston and one or more of the Merritts. We observed that many, a dozen or more, sandstone markers are placed in two rows. Very close to the old road bank there are old bricks, the remnant of a wall built around a grave or graves. I remember when I was a child that the bricks were very visible at the high edge of the east bank of the road and that they were falling into the road bed then.
