With fall upon us, here are a couple of scenes from a 2006 visit to Bourland Cemetery in southern Itawamba County. The huge tree in the top left photo is a white oak that towers over the cemetery. As its name suggest, Bourland Cemetery is home to several Bourlands, but there are also Rutledges, Wardlaws and Pennington buried here too. My great-uncle Gaylord Pennington married Orva Rae Rutledge, and as noted earlier my great-aunt Tootsie Pennington (his sister) married Clarence E. Wardlaw. Both Orva Rae and Gaylord, and Uncle Clarence are buried in Bourland Cemetery.
