Unnamed, uncared for cemetery near Whynot, Lauderdale County, MS
Surveyed by Dana Thomas Feb. 18, 2002

I interviewed my brother who found this cemetery and he says in 1996 many more headstones were present. Those still remaining on Feb. 18, 2002 are listed here. Also note that there are many graves marked with large iron ore rocks.

"The abandoned Whynot cemetery you transcribed, where Robinsons, Spinks, and Brewsters are buried is known as "The Old Brewster Cemetery". It may have another name, but it was identified as such by James Dawson in his book HISTORY OF WHYNOT, vol II. Supposedly, it is on property once owned by James Madison Brewster, one of my ancestors." -- Judy Gilmer
