The Fisher Cemetery in Mississippi

The pictures were provided by Mr. David Tharp via Mr. Jeff Cunningham. Thank you, gentlemen.

Here is what Mr. David Tharp says about the location of the cemetery:

The Fisher Cemetery in not on private property, but it is very difficult to find. It's across the road from a small Negro Church and cemetery, in an unmarked location. There's an indication of a passageway and you drive into the area and then very shortly after pulling off the main road you will see a path of sorts to your left. You walk down that path several yards (20 or 30 so, as I recall) and then keep looking to your right and hope and pray that the brush is not overgrown so much that you can't see the markers. There are no signs or makings anywhere.

Hiram Fisher was George Fisher's oldest son.

Is this cemetery on what was once The Twin Halls Plantation?
