CROOM CEMETERY

GEORGE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI

 

This cemetery is located off of Evanston Road , you will be traveling east on highway 198 . Approximately 2.0 miles  there will be an intersection of
highway 63 North and Evanston Road. Turn right on Evanston road and go 1 mile, you will see a small grass covered road on the right. Turn in there and
the cemetery is directly ahead of you. There are several unmarked graves in this cemetery. I walked the cemetery on Feb 26, 2007 and all information was
gathered using headstone inscriptions. The cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence, however there is considerable damage to several stones attributed to vandals. 
There is one marked veterans grave in this cemetery, and the oldest marked grave is dated  with a death date of 01-18-1897.

The cemetery surveyed on 26 Feb, 2007 by Jimmy Trussell, carverofwood1260@wmconnect.com.
