In Reply to: Freeman/Lee Ocoha Oakohay Covington Mississippi by Becky (Freeman)Hickman of 283

Becky, I don't know if you ever found the cemetery you are looking for but you might try COHAY instead of Oakohay. I think there is an area called Oakachay. Some years back I came across a cemetery in the Hot Coffee area. I don't recall the road but do remember that it is not far from Union Church Cemetery. Interestingly you are looking for Freeman/Lee. I too have Freeman and Lee in my history. My great great grandfather, William Prince was married to Levenia Freeman. They came to Mississippi from Morgan County Alabama and resided in the Covington County Area. Perhaps there is a connect.
I do recall that in the Cohay cemetery, there are a couple of stones with hand etched names.
Probably not much help, but..just maybe.
