EBENEZER/FRIENDSHIP CEMETERY

Ebnezer Cemetery is located in Webb Mississipp. Indexed September 21, 1997 by Lisa Tucker. Lisa has indexed two Cemeteries for the MSGENWEB project. Without folks like Lisa we would not have a project. I am grateful to her and all of those who are helping.

There are many unmarked graves in this cemetary. There is at least one sunken grave under a big tree. There are two fenced in plots without names or markers. There is one plot/plots that was fenced in but now only the four coroners remain. Many of the stones were difficult to read. Some are broken and are just lying there. The cemetary is located on a paved road just outside Webb, MS and it is well kept.

WEBB

Webb is located two miles southeast of Sumner, and was founded about 1880. The first post office was founded in 1880 and named Hood for one of the earlier settlers. In 1882 Judge J.L. Webb operated the only store there and later the Hood Masonic Lodge was built. There was one saloon at that time called the Razzle Dazzle.
In those days most of the groceries and necessities were brought to Hood by flat bottom boat from Sharkey, being hauled down the river from Friars Point. Cassidy Bayou was navigable then and was maintained by the Government from Sharkey to Hood.
Cassidy Bayou was suppose to have a ghost which was said to have appeared at the home of Boon Jenkins a farmer. Mr. Jenkins lived one mile north of Sumner. It was said that each appearance was accompanied by weird voices and shriek of a woman. People who followed the voices said it led to the bayou, and in some instances to the Indian Mounds in the vicinity. The mystery of Cassidy Bayou's Ghost has never been solved.

This Cemetery corrected, new additions and proofed February 1999.
