Pisgah Cemetery
Benton County, Mississippi

Old 78 and Pisgah Rd
Hickory Flat MS

Lat: 3437'37"N, Lon: 8913'17"W
T? R1E Sec 20/29

Contributed by Kim Luther, Apr 14, 2003 [jellybean@dixie-net.com]. Total records = 69.

To reach cemetery take Highway (new) 78, then Hickory Flat exit, go approx. 1.5 miles to intersection and turn right onto old 78, go approx .25 miles turn right on Pisgah Road, several blocks you will see cemetary on the right.

The condition of this cemetary is very good, it is well taken care of and as far as I have seen there are only two or three broken stones that are still there and readable. It is still accepting new burials even tho it is a small cemetary. Pisgah Church use to be on the same location as the cemetary but it burned years and years ago.

There are 16 graves that are noted with sandstone. There could be others but nothing noted to prove exactly where. There are several rows without any noted sign of graves.

This is a complete transcription of all existing tombstones as read, transcribed and compiled on Apr 13, 2003, by myself and Marla Luther.
