Daniel P. Davis Memorial Cemetery

The Daniel P. Davis Memorial Cemetery is located in Mississippi near the Pearl River County and Stone County border. To find this cemetery, drive 12 miles west from Wiggins, MS on Highway 26. Turn right on Lee Road which soon becomes Otho Davis Road (if you cross into Pearl River County on Highway 26, you just missed the turn). Drive two miles on Lee/Otho Davis Road, and turn left onto County Farm Road. Drive 1.3 miles and the cemetery will be on your right.

On June 26, 2004 Howard Baulch visited this cemetery and took photos of selected tombstones. Howard's great-grandaunt, Emeline Lee Davis, and many of her family are buried here. The transcriptions and tombstone photos are presented below. Comments in parentheses are not on the tombstone and are additional information offered by the author.
