Search Reedy Creek Church Cemetery:

rom Highway 77 in McLemoresville, turn onto College Street, drive about 0.3 mile to Adams Street, drive over this street about 0.1 mile to the Reedy Creek Missionary Baptist Church (built in 1957); the cemetery is located north, behind the church, on a long, gentle slope. This black congregation has been in existence since 1868, when the local whites turned it over to them and their Baptist congregation moved into Trezevant. It has long served as a community burial ground for black folk of the area. It may be that blacks were also buried in the larger cemetery in McLemoresville, near Reedy Creek Cemetery, in antebellum times, but if so, evidences of their graves have disappeared.
