Lann Cemetery

Inventory by William Terrance Thornton, Sherman Thornton, & Thomas Richard Plunkett; Transcribed by William Terrance Thornton

This inventory was conducted on November 12 - 13, 2002, by Thomas Richard Plunkett, Sherman Thornton, both of Amory, MS and William Terrance Thornton of Rinnie, TN. The data was transcribed, the photographs analyzed and the following lists were prepared by William Thornton.

Directions to Lann Cemetery: From Highway 278, Greenwood Springs, MS, turn north on Splunge Road for approximately 6 miles. Turn left on Brown-Taylor Road for approximately 1 mile to the junction of Brown-Taylor and Lann Cemetery Roads. Turn right on Lann Cemetery Road. The cemetery is at the fork in the road.

Lann Cemetery lies between Brown-Taylor Road (left) and Lann Cemetery Road (right).

Note to user:
Lann Cemetery is laid out roughly in eleven rows, A through K. Row A, a short row, is to the extreme eastern part of the cemetery. Rows B through J are more or less easy to follow although some rows seem to stop and/or divide. Row K contains all of the remaining markers to the extreme northwestern part of the cemetery.

Some of the middle rows were almost impossible to follow because so many of the graves have both a large headmarker and a substantial footmarker. Some of the footmarkers in a specific row are in line with the headmarkers of the adjacent row. Also, the rows were often difficult to follow because of the large number of unmarked grave-sites in the middle of the cemetery.

This inventory was prepared two ways:

1. Part I is a listing of names on the tombstones by rows. If the marker is shared, that information is added in     parentheses. All added information is shown in parentheses except the following:

a. the word "Born" is added before the birth date if that date could be determined from the marker.
b. the word "died" is added before the death date if that date cold be determined from the marker.
c. in all cases if the month of birth or death could be determined, the name of the month was spelled out     rather than using an abbreviation or a numeral.

2. Part II is a tombstone locator showing the names in alphabetical
    order, the row and the row number, and a digital photograph file number for the tombstone if that information     exists.

If you would like a photograph of a specific tombstone listed as having a jpg file in Part II, please send an email request to wtthornton9669@bellsouth.net listing the complete name from the marker you want.

And, finally, let me say that this inventory of Lann Cemetery is an on-going project. There were markers that were not readable without more research; there are some well-marked tombstones that were not sorted to Row and Number; and there are several markers for which no digital picture exists. Updates will be made to this inventory as time and conditions permit. Errors and omissions will be corrected as those mistakes are discovered.

LANN CEMETERY

PART I.

LIST OF NAMES FROM THE TOMBSTONES AT LANN CEMETERY
BY ROW AND NUMBER

Rows begin at the extreme northeast corner of the cemetery as it is approached from Brown-Taylor Road and Lann Cemetery Road. The rows are numbered from the "front" of the cemetery -- the north end or the portion of the cemetery lying closest to Lann Cemetery Road is the "front" of the cemetery for this numbering system.

ROW A. East side; does not begin at the "front" of the cemetery. One family plot with markers and bench.
