Thrasher in Prentiss County, Mississippi — The American South (East South Central)
This site was first established in the early 1800s as a Methodist revival meeting campground. Although a sanctuary was never built, services were held under a large brush arbor. The last meeting was held here during the 1880s. Established in 1823 with the burial of Joseph Bryant, the cemetery also contains the graves of several Tishomingo and Prentiss County pioneers, elected officials, and veterans from the War of 1812, First Seminole Indian War, Civil War, World War I, and World War II.
