Blair Cemetery

Enumerated on 23 October 2000 by James Hardy Wise.

Order of recording was front to rear and left to right, i.e. from the south parking area to the rear. Row designations are approximate as some burial sites are staggered out of line. Not all verses were recorded because of difficulty in reading.

Directions:

Take HWY 278 East of Amory, MS approximately 14 miles to Wolf Road. Go South on Wolf Road 1.68 miles to Blair Cemetery Road. The cemetery is a short distance down Blair Cemetery Road to the left and up a hill.
