Sandy Bayou Cemetery

Sandy Bayou is located at Drew Mississippi, Sunflower County.

Our Thanks to Wanda J. Carlton for this cemetery. Her statement about it is below.
" In the Summer of 1994, my husband, grandchildren and I walked and recorded this cemetery. I recently had an inquiry about it so decided to share it with everyone. A Ms. Lamastus was involved in the clean up and recording of the cemetery at this time, as the interested group was cleaning and repositioning long buried stones. It is my understanding that it was called the "YELLOW FEVER CEMETERY".

I hope this is of help to someone".
