Hodges Cemetery

Contributed: July 2002

Compiled by Judy Pruitt Reynolds

Located in the Antioch Community in Northeast Itawamba County

History: This is a secluded cemetery with probably fifty graves without markers. The cemetery is located on a hill in a wooded area off the main road. The first grave was the daughter of A. Hodge, who owned the property at the time. His daughter died and the family buried her under a grove of trees on their property. Other burials followed. It is thought that the Hodge family came to the area to work for the Golden Sawmill Co., which had a large operation in the area. The Frank Pruitt family probably was the next owner of the property. The dates of these events are not known to the compiler. Most of the people buried there are relatives or have other relatives buried there. The majority are Hodges, Pruitts or Mayhalls or relatives thereof. If others know more about this cemetery, please contact the compiler.
