HISTORY: This small (36 feet x 45 feet) family cemetery was named for Camellia Balius Krohn Cruthirds (1903-1966), wife of Melvin Krohn (1895-1940), and Roy Cruthirds (1902-1960). Melvin Krohn and Camellia are both interred at the Biloxi City Cemetery. Roy Cruthirds is buried at the Bethel Hill Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery at Latimer.
Camellia Krohn Cruthirds was the mother of Melvin C. Krohn, Sr. (1929-1983), Vernon Krohn, Alton Krohn, and Mildred Krohn Graves. Melvin Krohn and his wife, Justine M. Krohn, owned thirty eight acres in the NW/4 of Section 22 (Jackson County Deed Book 773, p. 57). Before his death in 1983, Melvin Krohn decided to be buried on this land. A site was chosen in the eastern segment of their tract near Camellia Road. This is now the Camellia Cemetery.
