Tree donated to Nesbit church

DeSoto County Coroner Josh Pounders and son Jake recently planted a Leland Cypress on the grounds of New Bethlehem Presbyterian Church in Nesbit as a living memorial to church members who have passed away. The church is one of the county’s oldest places of worship, founded in 1849. Several Pounders family members are buried in the church cemetery. Josh Pounders is the owner of Pine Ridge Christmas Tree Farm on the Pounders property.
