Located:  On a hill about ten miles south of Jackson, MS, on US Highway 51, at least 100 yards from the road, and no longer visible from that point.  The cemetery is totally abandoned, and will probably disappear from urban encroachment (S24T4NR1W).    Recorded:  By Mary Collins Landin, on 25 Jun 1983
First Grave:  1838

Remarks:  This old cemetery is totally abandoned and will probably disappear from urban encroachment.  According to family records, the widow of a Revolutionary War soldier, Josiah Stovall, and his children and grandchildren, are buried here.  Josiah died in Georgia in 1798, leaving his wife and 17 children who moved to Hinds County, MS.  The cemetery is located in what used to be the yard of one of his sons, Ralph Stovall.
