Anderson Cemetery (old)
Forrest County
Mississippi  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
My Mother sold the land to an adjoining ranch who cleared the land for grazing cattle. At some point this ranch declared bankruptcy and sold to a big ranching conglomerate. By this time the fence around the graveyard had deteriorated and cows were allowed to graze the area, knocking over some of the old tombstones. When members of the Anderson family complained, the owners responded by removing many of the stones and selling them for decorations.  By the time a stop could be put to the activity most of the stones had been removed. There are a dozen or so stones left.
