Yalobusha County
Pigsh (Few) Cemetery

 
Pisgah (Few) Cemetery is located traveling south from Water Valley, Yalobusha County, MS on Hwy 7 turn right on county road 90. Go to junction of CR 91 at Bethlehem and Mt. Gilead Churches. Proceed on CR 91 past the land fill approximately 3 miles to Pisgah (Few) Cemetery. The Cemetery is in good shape and is well maintained. There is a sign near the road and the cemetery is surrounded by chain link fencing. The gate is usually unlocked.

This transcription was done from a complete inventory of the cemetery stones on April 28, 2006. This information was compiled by me, Susan Few Adams , John Adams, and Audra Myrle Few Hardaway. The actual transcription was done May 9, 2006 by me. There have been a couple of stones that have been damaged by storm, funeral home trucks, and time. The information on one stone, remembered, has been listed.

This cemetery was built on property donated by my great grandfather, John Henry Few. At the time of its inception, there was standing here also a Methodist Church, Pisgah Methodist Church. However, sometime before 1936 the church stopped being attended and a Methodist body from Coffeeville came in and dismantled the church carrying off all of the materials. The cemetery remained and has been used to this day, my father, Charles M. Few being buried there in 2004. This cemetery has been maintained by James and Sarah Few McNatt. Improvements of the sign and fencing was done by them and my father Charles Few and his sister, Ernestine Wood. I hope you will find answers to genealogical questions you may have through use of this transcription. Susan Few Adams
