Edmondson Cemetery
De Soto County, Mississippi

NW Dr & Stateline Rd
Southaven MS

Lat: 34 59' 33"N, Lon: 90 00' 14"W

Contributed by Susan Martin, Sep 28, 2002 [lwbgirlies3@aol.com]. Total records = 103.

If you come down I-55 south, get off at Stateline Rd. exit & turn right. It is right at the next light on the right hand side, not more than 500' or so from the exit.

This is a small private cemetery which started c 1846. It is now closed for new burials, with a few remaining open burials spots which have been purchased, to be used when they are needed. Many are from the founding families in the area.

I was reading in a book of Miss. about Civil War cemeteries and this one was listed and it is very close to our new home. So I took my family & we decided to write the inscriptions down so I could submit them. I am unable to find any further history on it.

Transcribed in August of 2002, and estimate it is about 3/4 of the burials in the cemetery, which includes all the existing headstones.
