Copyright Fair Usage notice: The list of cemeteries below is derived from “Newton County Mississippi: A Cemetery Census 1782 - 1995”. To locate the GPS of a cemetery, a combination of Google Earth, Google Maps (Internet) and Bing Maps (Internet) were used. The town listed below is the nearest town and the direction from the town a cemetery is located. Multiple sources were used to determine Quadrant, Township, Range and Section where the cemetery is located. The book was used as a starting point, but to insure accuracy, MDOT Newton County 2003 and the Series 1957, No. 1 Soil Survey of Newton County Mississippi (USDA) were used.

Please notify NCHGS of any errors, corrections or additional cemeteries that can be added to this list. Only cemeteries with marked graves were listed.

* The “# Marked Graves” column is derived from “Newton County Mississippi: A Cemetery Census 1782 - 1995” and is the number of marked graves through the end of 1995.
