This collection of cemetery histories came about as a natural extension of the Author, Ray Bellande's interest in the history of Ocean Springs. It is hoped this work will facilitate the research of those interested in their family genealogy and history.This online format is mirrored from the book, same title as above.
As with most cemetery studies, there seems to be a propensity for errors of a typographical nature. These have been eliminated to the best of the author's ability, but no warranty is given to the total accuracy of this document.  Many of the cemeteries in this collection have been studied before, and errors discovered in these texts have been corrected in this online web page.
In the book (same title as this web page, published in 1992,presented for the first time,the survey, history and Registery of the large Crestlawn Memorial Gardens at Ocean Springs.  In addition, there were several small family cemeteries which have never been published before that were included in this work.  This project has been both challenging and rewarding.  Possibly there is something for everyone in this area to utilize in there quest for genealogical knowledge.
