Search Oliver Family Cemetery:

The Oliver Family Cemetery is located on the old Simeon Oliver plantation (now Jones Farm) on highway 304, about 3 miles west of the courthouse in Hernando (Section 16, Township 3 S, Range 8 W). From the courthouse, travel west on Hwy. 304, about 3 miles, and go past a cotton gin and a John Deere dealership. Another ½ mile or so is the Jones' brick house on the left on a little hill. The cemetery is about 250 yards or so South of the house in the pasture. It is heavily overgrown and very well hidden from the world, as can be seen from the pictures.

The following list of burials was obtained from the book "Desoto Cemetery Inscriptions", Edited and Compiled by J. B. Bell & Mildred M. Scott, and published by the Genealogical Society of Desoto County, MS, from a 1983 survey of the cemetery. The photos were taken by Mark Paden of South Carolina.

Note: Thanks to Liz Hvasta #47162956 and Jo Terry #47030398 for locating an 8th marked grave in the cemetery.
