Located:  On the old Granberry Plantation in the Palestine Community in south-central
Hinds County, MS (S32T4NR2W) (now owned by Smathers Family).
Recorded:  By Mary Collins Landin, on 15 Aug 1972
First Grave:  1811

Remarks:  This cemetery is in a pasture and had been unkept for many, many years.  It has recently been cleaned up and is now being used by the Smathers Family for new burials.  Although the older Smathers generation is buried in Jackson, a grandchild and other relatives are buried here.  The Smathers Family plans to continue to use the cemetery.  Stephen F. Granberry is the brother of my great great grandmother Martha Granberry Travis of Jasper County, MS, whose parents first settled in what became Hinds County in the early 1800s before moving to Jasper. The Granberry Family in Mississippi has many members wholive over most of the state.  In Hinds County, descendants of this branch live around Lebanon, Raymond, Bethesda, Palestine, Terry, Bryam, and Jackson.
