This cemetery is very old & will soon be completely destroyed. It is located in a private pasture off County Road #5 about 1.5 miles east of Co. Rd. 14, also known as the Waterloo Road. The pasture contains horses & other livestock & is probably the reason for the broken stones. Only one stone remains that is not damaged, and is that of Harriet Pomeroy. It is situated in briars, thus protecting it somewhat.

 

Located & surveyed by Steve Cooper & David Montgomery on March 14, 2013.

OBIT FOR STEWART WYLIE

 Obituary
 a.. 1900
 a.. Mr. Stewart Wylie
 Brother Stewart Wylie was born in Lauderdale County, Sept 15th, 1847, professed faith in Christ and united with the Methodist church in 1866, of which he lived a consistent member until 1898, when he became dissatisfied with his baptism, and joined the Missionary Baptist church at Winsboro, La., where he has lived since 1870, until April 19, 1900, when on account of ill health, he came back to Lauderdale Co., to be with his brothers and sisters. He was married to Mrs. Florence Brandis, Winsboro, La, in 1887; she having preceded him in death 20 years. Brother Wylie was a victim to that dreadful disease consumption, from which he was an intense sufferer, but bore his sufferings with patience and died in full triumph of a living faith, having died Dec. 15th 1900. Brother Wylie leaves 3 brothers and 2 sisters and a host of friends to mourn their loss, but our loss is his eternal gain. We would commend the sorrowing ones to him who doeth all things after the council of his own will. May his mercies and blessings rest on the crushed hearts is the prayer of the writer. 
J.W. Cabaniss
