This project will catalog and document all burials in Crossroads Holiness Cemetery, located in rural Smith County, Mississippi. This free space page for the Crossroads Holiness Cemetery is part of WikiTree's Mississippi Cemeteries Project, and was created to document the life and times of our ancestors that are interred there. The Mississippi Cemeteries Project is a sub-project of the larger U.S. Cemeteries Project.
This page is a work in progress, and will remain so until the Table of Interments (below) is completed. The Table of Interments is a sortable listing of persons interred at this cemetery, some or all of whom are linked to existing WikiTree profiles. If you know of a person interred at this cemetery that should be linked to an existing WikiTree profile, or needs to have a profile created for them, please contact Myrtis Bishop for assistance.
