Old Broom Cemetery
Marion County, Mississippi

Lat: 3124'44"N, Lon: 8940'06"W

Located on Bethel Church Road in NW Marion County MS

Contributed by D. Christopher Watts, Oct 27, 2001 [cwatts@cblink.com]. Total records = 63.

Old Broom Cemetery was established in 1889 and was frequently used until 1936, when it was "abandoned."

In 1971 an effort to restore the cemetery was begun by several local men, preserving the cemetery to the condition it is in today, A marker near the fence records this restoration and who took part in it.

This listing was compiled on Oct 27, 2001 by taking the information from the headstones. To my knowledge, no one has been interred in Old Broom Cemetery since May, 1936.

I do not know how many graves are unaccounted for, but a marker near the back of the cemetery gives a listing of "Unknown Grave Sites." Those with an asterisk * following their entry are taken from this sign, which means they are buried here but have no marker over their gravesite.
