Located on the hilltop 500 feet southwest of here. Fry Cemetery typifies rural valley-and-ridge community cemeteries of the 1800s. The Fry family emigrated from Virginia to this area when it was still part of the Mississippi Territory. Revolutionary War veteran Phillip Fry was buried here in 1840. Family names found in the cemetery include Carnes, Copeland, Cox Fry, Hinds, Mays, Wilcox, and others. Numerous graves are indicated by cairns, stone slabs, and inscribed stones, while many graves no longer have visible markers.
