This Cemetery Indexed by Nick Denley of Charleston Mississippi-October 1997.


Samuel Foster settled about one-half mile North of the present location prior to 1830. The site was located seven miles south of Charleston. Mr. Foster started a farm and in 1832 made the first crop of record in what is now Tallahatchie County.
Richard Leverett, An Afro-American purchased the land in 1864 and for many years he increased his holdings. He made a deed of gift to Monroe and Warren Leverett in 1871. The parcel of land was located about where the old site of Leverett was located.
Prior to 1891 a voting precinct was and a post office was established, and called Leverett for Monroe Leverett who owned the land at that time. The Leverett post office was abolished in 1910. A new road was built in the 1930's, and the town site was moved a mile
east leaving only a cotton gin and a few houses on the site.

There are as many graves not marked as there are marked ones. Many of the graves are only marked with Funeral Home Markers, and these are so faded they are illegible.
