Cemetery notes and/or description:

This small and peaceful cemetery is on land donated by Captain and Mrs. John C. Webb, Jr. in 1878. A wrought iron fence surrounds the well-maintained property. In the center of the burial ground is a stone obelisk with a "Mogen David". The obelisk bears the following two inscriptions "Families of Congregation B'nai Jeshurun; Established 1858" and "Land Donated By Capt. & Mrs. John C. Webb, Sr. 1878". There are many family plots in this cemetery, many of which are from once large and prominent Jewish families from the town. The Jewish Community of Demopolis dates to the early 1800's when an itinerant Jewish peddler came to town. His name was Isaac Marx and he encouraged other Jewish families from back East to settle in Demopolis. The tombstones in the B'nai Jeshurun Cemetery were recorded in August 1996.
