Tubb Cemetery

Submitted by Catherine Cooper

The Tubb Family Cemetery is located just south of Highway 21 near Gholson and near the Noxubee-Kemper line. The most recent survey was taken in 1965 and included in the book "Tombstone Inscriptions of Noxubee County, Mississippi" published by the Noxubee County Historical Society in 1975. At that time, only two tombstones remained in the cemetery.

Sometime before her death in 1962, Annie Calmes McGraw Thomas, granddaughter of Elisha Floyd Tubb and Bethenia Lane Mitchell, surveyed the cemetery. At that time, several tombstones remained intact. I have transcribed her survey here exactly as she wrote it.
