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

Located:  On Holliday Road near Learned, MS, about 500 yards from the road, behind the Pittman home (S17T4NR3W).
Recorded:  By Mary Collins Landin, on 16 Jan 1979
First Grave:  1837

Remarks:  The old cemetery is known locally as the Holliday Cemetery because the Hollidays later owned the property on which it is located.  The cemetery was in a total state of disrepair, and most of the gravestones were broken or missing, when it was recorded in 1979.  There are ten or more unmarked graves, and some stones that cannot be read, as well as several large vaults.  In 2005, the cemetery has now been restored by descendants, fenced off, and as many gravestones as possible repaired.
