Brazil Baptist Church


This Cemetery Indexed by Nick Denley, Chancery Clerk of Tallahatchie County, Mississippi-September 1997. Every Effort has been made to make this Cemetery as accurate as possible

Directions: Take 32 East of Webb Mississippi to Hwy 321 North.
Go North on Hwy 321 to Brazil, turn right at Brazil and go to the
Church and Cemetery.


Brazil is located seven miles North East of Sumner Mississippi. This site was settled in the mid-1800's and called Lay for the man who owned the land, but later changed to Bessie for his daughter. The railroad was built in 1906 . Smith Murphree now owned the land, and it was called Murphree's Spur. For some unknown reason the name was changed to Brazil in 1915.

This Cemetery corrected, and updated February 1999.
