Cemetery notes and/or description:
Article dated May 15, 1983, from the Vicksburg Evening Post for Porters Chapel Homecoming Event.
"Porters Chapel is one of the oldest churches in Warren County. The Porter family, James and Mary, donated ther land in 1830 whe the original building was erected. In the beginning it was known as the "Community Meeting House." The building was used as a hospital during the Civil War and was also destroyed by the Union Troops in this same period of conflict. The second building was built in 1877 and was used as a school house. The third and present building, which is now used as an educational facility, was completed in 1910. The sanctuary was completed in 1965. The cemetery is also significant in the history of Porters Chapel Church. Many of the graves are of people who died during the Yellow Fever epidemic, and prior to the Civil War. The list of former pastors is a lesson in history itself, beginning with a blind preacher named Bole, who is buried in the cemetery at Porters Chapel Church."
