Taylor Cemetery
George County, Mississippi


Leaving Lucedale on Highway 198 East, you will go about 1 mile, when you top the hill immediately on your left will be some red brick (Small) columns
with chain between them. This is the Taylor cemetery entrance, you must park on the south side of the road and walk across the road and up the bank to
reach the cemetery. This is a private cemetery that is maintained by heirs of the founders of it. It is in very good condition and the oldest marked grave is that
of James M. Spooner (date of death) 6-11-1879. Information was taken from all legible temporary grave markers and headstone inscriptions.
The cemetery was walked by Jimmy Trussell on the 8th of December 2007.I was given permission for the walk by Mr. Lee West, whose mother was a Taylor.
