Dear Mrs. Arnold, I am writing you because I was told in interviews that some of our folks were buried in the Tillatoba Cemetery. I was unable at the time to get to Charleston, and therefore paid my cousin (Mrs. Mary P. Williams)'s gardner, Mr. Frank Diltz, to survey this black cemetery and write down all the names and all infomation on all headstones. This was done in April of 1990. I have Mr. Diltz's typed 2-page list. Even though there is no sign on it, he said the cemetery was also called "Tillatoba Cemetery," but is 100% black.
This cemetery does not appear on your list, but it should. I talked to Mr. Diltz today to get directions so that in the event you or Mr. Denley wanted to actually see it, this might help: it is 3 blocks from Highway 55 on Tillatoba Road, but far back from the road, he said it is in the middle of a cow pasture -- and that it is also 2 blocks down from the truck
stop to your right.
This cemetery is in Yalobusha county. Donated by Sandra Craighead. Signed: Sandra Carighead.
