DEMPSEY CRIBB CEMETERY
Sheila Berry and Sandra Brumbles, 2002.
Direction: I copied the directions from Erie Cribb because he sent me directions that
are so precise. Dempsey Cribb Cemetery --------------
Begin at the intersection at Fork, proceed South on Hwy 41 toward Mullins for
about 1 mile. Turn left (East) and proceed on Buck Swamp Rd exactly 1 1/10
mile. Turn Right (South) onto a narrow, dirt, farm road.After you turn onto
this road, you will see a small cow pasture and dwelling house on the left
and woods on the right, Continue straight on South for exactly 4/10 mile and
turn right at the edge of an open field. There is no road there but you can
continue on with a woods hedge row on the right and a very large open field
on the left. Continue on until you see a break (Open Space) on the right in
the woods hedgerow. Stop here and as you sit in your car, look to the left
across the field at about 10 or 11 o'clock. Approx halfway between where you
are sitting and the woods beyond the open field is the location of where the
Cemetery was. I was told by some old Timers in the area that there was a road
in that direction on which the Cemetery adjoined. Remember, there is no road
there now, and nothing else except an open farm field.
NOTE: With permission from Harry Jones, I was able to copy his survey
on this cemetery. However, it is no longer there or I should say the headstones are no
longer there. It was in the middle of a field and I guess the owner thought more of
the land than the graves. The headstones have never been found.
