Lisa's Cemetery Site


George County, Mississippi


 Take Highway 26 west out of Lucedale, Mississippi and you will cross over the  Highway 63 by-pass, continue west on Highway 26 for another 2.3 miles.
Here you will turn left onto Central-Basin Road and go south another 7.3 miles. The Gibson cemetery will be on your right at the top of a small hill. It is surrounded
by a chain link fence and was in very good condition. There were several unmarked graves in the cemetery which was established in 1877. There is a large
Magnolia tree in the center of the cemetery. I was told by Mrs. Judy Goff that the story is that there was a Mr. Dave Gibson buried there and then the Magnolia tree
planted at the head of the grave. No marker was ever placed there, but Mrs. Goff stated that they were going to place a marker there in memory of Mr. Gibson. 
The cemetery is owned and maintained by family members of those buried there. There was one Spanish American War Veteran,(John Nyman), in this cemetery.
The cemetery was walked by Jimmy Trussell on the 10th of December, 2007 and information was taken from all legible temporary grave markers and headstone inscriptions.
