History  Memphis National Cemetery was originally established as Mississippi River National Cemetery when the Union Army forces took control of Memphis during the American Civil War. The cemetery served to inter veterans who died while in the many military hospitals in the delta region of the Mississippi River. After the war, several battlefield cemeteries were transferred to Memphis National Cemetery.[1]

In 1867, about 250 bodies of both Confederate and Union soldiers, some of whom were casualties of the Battle of Fort Pillow in Lauderdale County, were moved from a battlefield cemetery south of Fort Pillow to Memphis National Cemetery to be re-interred in a designated field.

Evidence Class C EVP’s.  We recorded no EMF spikes.

Springhill Cemetery in Hernando, MS

Investigation  

Springhill Cemetery was established as a donation, as shown on the plat of the original grid of Hernando (in the Chancery Clerk’s office), from 1836, when the new town, then called Jefferson, was platted. Hernando is the first and only seat as of Desoto County, created shortly after the Chickasaw Cession at the 1832 Treaty of Pontotoc. The family groups of graves, two or three to eight or ten in rows aligned north-south and facing east. Provision of a public burial ground at the outskirts of towns was a major movement in Victorian urban planning; and still provided a burial site alternative after church, plantation and isolated family cemeteries came into building. Besides grazing for town cows, a nineteenth century town’s  graveyard was also an open space for strolling and contemplation. Springhill was used primarily in the antebellum period, with some later 19th and 20th century interments. After the yellow fever epidemic of 1878 almost destroyed the town, few families still used it. The core of the cemetery contains numerous examples of high-quality but often damaged stonework; however, the cemetery also is highly likely to contain hundreds of unmarked nineteenth century graves. Many cemeteries had annual days for visiting and cleaning graves, and in the late nineteenth century community contributions kept it fenced. But as families died out or moved on, the cemetery was largely abandoned by 1900, and it fell into neglect and eventually was used as a cattle pasture and woodlot.
