Though the Find-a-Grave website is wonderful, it does contain some glitches re cemetery names. Last week when I added pictures of the ARP Cemetery on Glenn Street, the Find-a-Grave list of cemeteries to choose from included one for "Old Presbyterian Cemetery" in Starkville but not the ARP Cemetery. Even though I could have added a cemetery to the list, I assumed that "Old Presbyterian Cemetery" was the same as "A.R.P. and United Presbyterian Cemetery" (the name on the sign of the cemetery on Glenn Street), so I added them there.
Now the Find-a-Grave list for Oktibbeha County does include a listing for "Associated Reform Presbyterian Cemetery" (no entries yet). And Find-a-Grave has just this week added some excellent GPS maps. The map for Associated Reform Presbyterian Cemetery has the marker in precisely the right place for the cemetery on Glenn Street. And (I'm finally coming to the question) the map for "Old Presbyterian Cemetery" has the marker on Louisville St. between McKinley and Bryant.
Here's my question: Is there a cemetery in that block of Louisville Street? (I lived in Starkville for over thirty years and have driven along that part of Louisville street zillions of times. But I was not on the lookout for old cemeteries then.) I'm going to be in Starkville day after tomorrow very briefly -- no photography time but possibly time to zip by Louisville Street and look myself. My curiosity makes me want to know before Friday, though. (And I am not happy at the thought of how long it will take me to move all those entries/pictures to a different cemetery!)
