John Allen Cemetery
Hinds Co. MS.

The information on John Allen cemetery was donated by K. E. Hinson The cemetery is located on Brock Road off Mississippi Hwy. 27 between Utica and Crystal Springs in Hinds County, MS.

This is an exact transcription of pages 162-163, from The Old Cemetery Records of Hinds Co., Mississippi from 1811 to Present by Mary Collins Landin, Utica, Mississippi, 1988. Recorded: by Frances C. Burnet Fisher in 1943.

First grave dated 1832. Remarks: In October 1978, Mary Landin tried to record this old abandoned cemetery, but had to give up because of the Japanese honeysuckle, briars, and fire ants. This cemetery is completely overgrown, although there are no trees in it. There are many unmarked graves, many of whom are relatives of Mrs. Fischer. She had copied the cemetery 44 years ago, and gave me the list of gravestones. This old cemetery is being encroached upon by intensive row cropping, and will probably disappear in a few years.
