Lisa's Cemetery Site

Sweetwater Cemetery
George County, Mississippi

Go North on Highway 57 out of Benndale, Mississippi. Go approximately .3 tenths of a mile, here you will take a left turn onto Deep Creek Road.
You will stay on this road for 2.8 miles and the Sweetwater Church will be on you right, the cemetery is located behind the church. The cemetery is
owned and maintained by the church, and it surrounded by a chain link fence. The first thing you will notice are the many small white wooden crosses
throughout the cemetery, (82 in all).  59 of these crosses contained a small metal tag with the name of the person buried there, 23 more did not have
the name tags attached to them. The names that are on the small wooden crosses will not have any dates, only a note saying "metal name tag".
The cemetery was walked on the  5th of January, 2008 by Jimmy Trussell.
Information was taken from all legible temporary grave markers, headstone inscriptions and the above mentioned small metal name tags.
