Russell Cemetery
Lamar County, Mississippi

Lat: 31° 22' 09"N, Lon: 89° 35' 47"W

Contributed by D. Christopher Watts, Oct 19, 2002 [cwatts@cblink.com]. Total records = 123.

Russell Cemetery is located on Russell Cemetery Road, off of Rocky Branch Road.

The first burial I can record here is in 1868. It is still an active cemetery and is a mixture of "post-bellum" and very modern markers, sadly, many of the older markers are broken and left leaning against their base.

The cemetery is relatively well maintained, remote, and surrounded by hayfields. I counted at least nine unmarked childrens graves and at least two or three unmarked adults. I'm quite certain that there must be several others that are unmarked and lost to time.

This listing was made from a visit to the cemetery on Jul 22, 2005. Anyone who would care to update this listing periodically is more than welcome to do so.
