KEMPER COUNTY , MISSISSIPPI in eastern MS. where I was raised and remember this gate. Would my community here be on the watch for our gate? It is a beautiful ornate cast iron with a large mossy tree and two sheep laying in foreground. Can be viewed by GOOGLING "Historical cemetery gate taken"

The church was founded 1860 and the cemetery was located there before the church. A iron fence surround the cemetery. The date on the gate had 1869. This theft has struck a nerve in the community.
“So many are heart broken about this,” Wendy said. “It’s not just the gate, it’s the peace and serenity that has been disturbed.”
She added that she wish whoever took the gate would return it, or let someone know where It is.
