Indexed by Nick Denley December 1997, Clerk of Chancery Court Tallahatchie
County Mississippi. Every Effort has been made to make this Cemetery as
accurate as possible Located TS25 N R3E, Section 14, destroyed.
This cemetery is a remote one. It is located one-half mile West of
Springhill Road on Oakgrove Road. It is located on the property of J.E.
Slaughter, which was once owned by W.D. Rome. Nick talked with Mr.
Slaughters Daughter and was told that the Cemetery had fell to decay
over the years. She said her father had kept the cemetery up until
he became disabled. She stated that she remembered about 15 graves
being there and most all of them were marked ROME.
If anyone knows who is buried there, Rome or others please let Nick
Denley at the Courthouse in Charleston Mississippi know.
