Contributed by Sheila Berry, 23 Dec 2001RAMSEY CEMETERY Copied by Sheila Berry, Dec 2001 Direction: Dillon going toward Little Rock on highway # 9 west. After 7 or 8 miles and through caution light in Little Rock. Stay on #9 highway going to Clio for about 3 miles and bear off to left-hand road which is at Higgins Cross Road. Cemetery is on the left 7/10 of a mile and in the woods. Lydia H.Cousar 3/28/1840-4/27/1928 Lock Brown 11/9/1825-11/13/1902 aged 60 years old Rev.D.J.Cousar went into Ministry 1875 for N.& S.C.

As I said in the directions, it is definitely in the woods and has been for quite some time. You have to cross a big drainage canal to get to the cemetery. Many, many graves sunk in and with no markers to them. There must be at least thirty(30) or so graves. A man that lives on the same road as the cemetery said that there was a man buried out there about ten or fifteen years ago by the name of Wright, but I didn't see a FHM.
