(an African American cemetery)
Tishomingo County, Mississippi

Contributed by RaNae S. Vaughn

The Coman Cemetery was for the Tishomingo County Historical & Genealogical Society (TCHGS). The following burial information was transcribed from TCHGS’ book entitled Tishomingo County Mississippi Cemeteries by Helah Wilson and Janice Switcher on November 3, 2005.

Driving Directions: From Iuka, Mississippi, travel Highway 25 South to a motel located near the Highway 72 and 25 overpass. The motel was originally the Days Inn, but now it is currently called the Sunset Motel. Turn right and drive past the motel for about 0.1 of a mile. Turn left onto an old drive on the left, and the cemetery is located down the hill on the south side.

This is an African American cemetery. Unfortunately, there are no markers at this gravesite.
