In researching death certificates, I kept coming across a town that looked like "Mirivd" or some other spelling. I never could make it out.
Then my cousin gave me an old newspaper article
his grandmother had in her collection of family photos, Christmas cards and obits. There it was, plain as could be, "Milvid". Not a whole lot has been written about Milvid but it was evidently a town, which was created, as so many were, by the lumber companies as they hauled the pine trees along the routes by train. These little towns were train station, lumber towns. When the lumber industry was gone, the towns soon followed.
Near where Milvid stood is an old black cemetery deep in the woods and hard to reach. Up the hill is a white cemetery, or so they say.
