Old Muscogee Cemetery

Photos

This cemetery is in the Farm Hill community, on land that was owned by the Southern State Lumber Company until 1926, when they sold it. Most people buried here are lumber-related. The two churches that used the cemetery were the Methodist Church and the Pentecostal Church. When the cemetery was surveyed in 1984, it was found among waist-high brush. There were many unmarked graves. The first burial was in 1894. This was a beautiful old cemetery, fenced, with tall old headstones with a road around the perimeter. The cemetery has been vandalized so many times it is sickening to see it today. There are some recent burials. An old historic cemetery lost!!

Directions: US29 north to Cantonment to the intersection of US29 and CR184. Turn left on CR184 for about 4 miles. Turn right on a dirt road, “River Annex Road.” The cemetery is located off the road on the left side at the Champion International Corp. gate, approximately ½ mile.

The Old Muscogee Cemetery was surveyed by Evan Strohl and Beverly & Don Kenney and other members of the West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS) in 1984. It was published in Volume 1, Gravestone Registry, Escambia County, Fla. It was transcribed and contributed the the Escambia County USGenWeb site by WFGS member and former webmaster Ginny Deagan, with permission of the WFGS Board of Directors.
