Hilliard Cemetery, Monroe County, Mississippi

Hilliard Cemetery lies off Ritter Road in Monroe County near Amory, Mississippi. The small cemetery received its last marked burial seventy-two years ago. Not indexed by Evans et al in the 1930s inventory of burials in the county, the cemetery is accessible only by foot and lies in a thick stand of trees. A transcription of the names from the grave markers and links to the photographs of the markers found in the cemetery on March 31, 2010 has been posted at Hilliard Cemetery (click to read).
