|There is no way of locating the final resting place of every member of the 7th Mississippi Infantry. Yet every gravesite we do find is a victory in our efforts to remember these valiant men.
We encourage all our visitors to please share with us any information you may have as to the final resting place of any soldier from the 7th that you know of. For any errors or omissions we apologize in advance and ask you to point out the changes needed. This is a huge project so please consider contributing.

|RESEARCH NOTE: Beside the 7th Miss. infantry regiment there are two other 7th Miss. units who have soldiers buried all across this area of Mississippi. The 7th Regiment (Perkins' Battalion) Miss. Militia was the unit raised from the Liberty area of the Natchez district for service during the war of 1812. There was also a 7th Miss. infantry battalion in the service of the Confederacy.|
This can present problems in compiling a list of gravesites for the regiment this website is dedicated to. Especially if the only headstone or marker information given is the soldiers name and the words 7th Mississippi.
|Please Note: Amite County Confederate Grave Photos has many photos of 7th Mississippi headstones as well as members of many other Confederate units buried in Amite county. The site is well worth your visit. These other good sites are recommended as well.
