Pilgrim Baptist Church 80th Anniversary, 1960

The following article appeared in the October 30, 1960 edition of the Monroe Morning World:

Pilgrim Baptist Church is located just outside the incorporated village of Sicily Island on Highway 15 North.  

The photographs below were taken in 2013 when I was visiting back home and documenting local cemeteries.

The Pilgram Baptist Church Cemetery is located to the right of the church in the above photograph.  

Among the 198 buried in this cemetery as of 2013, one of the oldest was Henry Brown.  His date of birth is listed on his tombstone as 1848.

I have attempted to link family members together on the FindAGrave website for Pilgrim Cemetery. If you have family or friends buried here, please go to the link provided above to view, add and/or correct information to the individual memorials.  You can also email me at with any information you'd like to add or correct.
