Mississippi Cemeteries Project



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.

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.
