Delay Baptist Cemetery
Lafayette County, Mississippi

Lat: 34° 14' 53"N, Lon: 89° 24' 06"W

Submitted by Barbara Pruitt, Mar 07, 2005 [bgpruitt@hotmail.com]. Total records = 67.

To reach this cemetery from Yocona, drive south on CR 445 for 2.5 miles. Turn east of left into Delay and the cemetery will be on the right side of the road.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Delay Baptist Church, which is situated beside the fenced in cemetery. This appears to be a fairly new cemetery with the first burial with a headstone being in 1962. It is in good condition and is still being used.

I visited and read all existing tombstones or markers in this cemetery on Mar 05, 2005. The most recent burial was Feb 27, 2005.
