Movella
Baptist
Cemetery
George County, Mississippi


We'll start our trip to this cemetery in Agricola, Mississippi on Highway 613. Start at the Agricola Baptist Church and go 4.8 miles south. Here you will come to
Movella Church Road on your right. Take this road to the right and the cemetery and church will be on your left. The original cemetery is located beside the church,
they have a new cemetery started across the road from the church. To date there are 115 marked graves in the old cemetery and only 2 in the new one,
I will note those buried in the new cemetery. The cemeteries are both surrounded by chain link fences and are in good shape.
Jimmy Trussell walked these two cemeteries on the 31st of December 2007, and information was taken from all legible temporary grave markers and headstone inscriptions.
I did not list the graves of those that did not have a recorded death date.
