St. Matthew M.B. Church Cemetery

Please feel free to link to my pages, but do not claim my work as your own. I hope you find something here that will aid you in your personal research. E-mail me if you can add a link to the Grand Chain Gang. Also, please be sure to sign my guest book before you leave and list your surnames. Perhaps, another visitor might have a connection.


 

This is an African American Church cemetery located in Byhalia, Mississippi.  It is located just off Old Highway 78 at 61 Shinault Road. The photos were taken February 13, 2010.  This is only about 1/4 of those interred here.  I plan to photograph the entire cemetery at a later date.
