Old Greensboro Cemetery

        The following information was submitted by Glenn Avary. Mr. Avary copied the information at the State Archives, Jackson, MS. The original survey was done by Dr. William D. McCain (Vol. 1) May 16, 1965-April 27, 1986.
        The blacks have used the eastern part of the Old Greensboro Cemetery for some years for their burials. It is difficult to determine in some cases which ae the tombstones and markers for blacks and for whites. Therefore, all inscriptions on all markers and tombstones was copied.
        Mr. Avary suggests that if you visit this cemetery, you go in the winter months when there is less growth as the cemetery is overgrown and has been badly neglected. Many stones have been damaged and many just no longer exist, either covered by brush, earth, or removed by vandals.
        If there is anyone who can organize a clean-up day and time and get volunteers to help restore this cemetery (as much as possible); it would be a most valuable project and would be appreciated by generations yet to be born and begin genealogy research.
