Cemeteries to be photographed

By Press Reports

Choctaw County Historical and Genealogical Society are photographing all cemeteries in Choctaw County. “We apologize, in advance, for any and all inconvenience to you and your families. We are using chalk (which washes off after a rain) on those stones that are hard to read. If you know that a stone is on the ground and unreadable and can not be photographed, please help us getting it back in place. We wish to make the best pictures possible in order to preserve the information for future generations.” We hope to complete this project before year end, however there are over 99 cemeteries that have been logged and inventoried. If you are aware of an unnamed cemetery, please call Margie Simpson Gilmer at the library (662-285-2356) and give her the location and directions for how to find it so we can get photographs. Thank you for your help.
