. * ST JOHN'S CHURCH

Greenfield Cemetery
Washington County,
Mississippi

-In Remembrance-
Here stood St John's Protestant Episcopal Church, erected 1854-56, consecrated April 5, 1857 by Bishop Wm. Mercer Green, Sr., exposed to wind and water when lead from its windows was made into bullets during the war between the states and finally destroyed by a cyclone in 1904.
Greenfield Cemetery has been hallowed ground since 1852 when Jonathan McCaleb deeded this site to St. John's Parish whose wardens then were Robert J Turnbull and Christopher F. Hampton and whose vestrymen included Wade Hampton, Wade Hampton, Jr., John T. Chapman, Henry P. Duncan, John Butts, C. F. Hamil, Thomas J. Likens and Abram F Smith.

This centennial marker was placed here in 1952 by Francis Stuart Harmon in loving tribute to relatives and friends asleep here.......
