Bluff Springs Baptist Church Cemetery, Eupora, Webster County, Mississippi

Eupora, Webster County
Mississippi

First I want to apologize to anyone who has family buried in this cemetery if their name is not listed herein.  there are so many beautiful headstones that had faded completely with time, leaving no names or dates, also there are many broken headstones that do not have information.  This list is not in any particular order as there were two of us cataloging the cemetery.

We wish to acknowledge Susan Morgan, for transcribing, this cemetery so we can present it to our readers.  Work of individuals like her are what make our pages grow!!

Thanks, Susan

* Denotes that this is possibly the correct name as the tombstone was hard to read.
