Mount Olive Cemetery

The Mount Olive Cemetery was established in 1906 as a burial ground for employees of the Tatum Lumber Company and for the Bonhomie community. W.S.F. Tatum, founder of the mill and a future mayor of Hattiesburg, donated $100 to purchase a five-acre tract for the cemetery and appointed three trustees. Among the approximately 250 men, women, and children buried here are the trustees, Sam McClendon, Ed Pride, and Romeo Anderson, as well as veterans of World War I.
