The entries in this file are copied from the actual headstones.  If there is no headstone for an interment, there is no listing.   Thousands are buried in the Natchez City Cemetery with no headstone.  Also, being listed there does not give any indication about the burial being a local death, or someone brought from another town or state.

The parenthisized number at the end of every entry indicates the name of the section in which the individual was buried.

                         (1) Plot 1 & Old Catholic
                         (2) Plot 2
                         (3) Plot 3
                         (4) Case
                         (5) Fields
                         (6) Catholic Hill
                         (7) Jewish Hill

The Maiden Names Cross Reference list, indexed by maiden name, is helpful in locating a female where the married name is unknown.  It provides a place to look first to avoid having to scan the entire tombstone inscriptons.
