Jayess Baptist Cemetery
Lawrence County, Mississippi

1007 Jayess Road
Jayess, MS
601-833-6143

Contributed by Earl Alexander, Apr 24, 2004 [dukerl42@bellsouth.net].  Total records = 81.

if you are in Monticello, go S .on hiway 27 until you come to hiway 44, go west on 44 and when you reach Jayess, turn south at the crossroad (may be called Jayess Road). Jayess Baptist church is located on the left side of road (1/4 mile or less) after turning south. The cemetery is located behind the church.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Jayess Baptist Church in Jayess MS. Cemetery is in good and well kept condition. It is still accepting new burials.

This is a complete list of all existing and legible headstones, compiled by my wife Nelli and I while doing a walk through on 23 Apr 2004.
