Search Canaan Hill Cemetery:

Canaan Hill Cemetery is located approximately 200 yards southeast of the Swan Lake Indian Mound on the Yazoo Refuge Road (as entered from Foote, MS). It is in a wooded area not visible from the road. Fifteen grave stones were found with sufficiently readable markings identifying seventeen individuals. These grave stones were photographed as well as several unmarked grave stones in and around two wrought iron fenced enclosures. There were a number of other grave sites identified by unmarked stones and depressions. The identified grave stones were widely spaced, so the cemetery likely has a substantial number of burials. Stacy Childress reports that the cemetery is on the site of an African American church (no longer in existence) by the same name.
