Church's and Cemeteries of Carroll County, Mississippi

Old Bluff Springs Cemetery
(Frog Pond Cemetery)

LOCATION:  Section 6 or 7, Township 18 North, Range 5 East.  This is almost on the Section Line between Section 6 and 7.  From the Bluff Springs Church, go east approximately 0.2 mile.  As you leave the Bluff Springs Church, you will go around a curve to the left.  There will be fairly deep ravine on the left of the road.  When you pass the ravine, there will be a small ridge, on the left.  It is higher that the road.  The cemetery is about 100 feet, out in the woods.   Old Bluff Springs is a really old cemetery and is overgrown so bad, it will probably one of the lost cemeteries, in a few years.
