Search Halifax Village Cemetery:

Located: Off Amsterdam Road, an untraveled private gravel road in extreme northwestern Hinds County, leading to the Big Black River (S6T7NR3W). Recorded: By Mary Collins Landin, on 06 May 1979 First Grave: 1840

Remarks: The old village of Amsterdam was flourishing prior to the Civil War, and is one of the oldest settlements in Hinds County, The cemetery, whick is about 300 yards off the gravel road in thick overgrown woods and vines, is probably older than 1840, since the village was founded in 1828. There are only a few bricks and flowers to show where the old settlement was. Most of the grave markers were vaults, and there are at least 27 visible unmarked graves. A major cholera epidemic in 1832 filled the cemetery with unmarked graves, and practically wiped out the village.
