 Recorded and contributed by Mary Collins Landin  7-06-05

Located:  About four miles east of Bolton, MS, at the site of an old church that is no longer in existence (S16T6NR2W).
Recorded:  By Mary Collins Landin, on 24 Aug 1980
First Grave:  1840

Remarks:  This old cemetery used to be near a main road from Bolton to Mt. Salus (Clinton), and was at an old church site.  The church was the New Salem Church, but I don't know what denomination.  When I recorded this cemetery, it was in worse shape than when it was copied by a descendant of the families buried here (Mrs. Gene Moore of Laurel, MS, in 1957).  At that time Mrs. Moore said it was in such deep woods that she had to go by horse and wagon to the site.  It is in deep woods now, and is accessible only by foot.  The old road bed is still visible nearby.  With Clinton growing westward towards this site, it probably is just a matter of time before it is encroached upon.  However, since it is on sixteenth section land, maybe the State Forestry Commission will see that it is not destroyed. There are many many unmarked graves here.
