MORRISON CEMETERY, Monroe County, Mississippi

Index of burials based upon names found on the grave markers,

March 15, 2010

by Terry Thornton

The following alphabetized index was transcribed from the names on grave markers in Morrison Cemetery. The grave markers in the cemetery were photographed on March 15, 2010.

Morrison Cemetery is located on the west side of Cowden Road north-northeast of Hatley. A sign marks the cemetery; there is a driveway for off-road parking. The cemetery contains about one acre and has, at present, twenty burials.

The index below contains the individual's surname, given name(s), year of birth, year of death, name of cemetery, and the image number of the grave marker photograph which also serves as a link (click to view). The abbreviation nod means "no other date."

Researchers are advised to view the grave marker photographs to determine the exact spelling of names, to establish the complete dates of birth and death, and to ascertain the relationships of individuals sharing markers.
