Searching for Birth Father
I am searching for my birth father, I don't know my his name, I was hoping you or a family member might recognize him from the photo since that is the only hope I have of finding him. These photos were taken in 1958 and 1959. The one with my mother in the photo was taken in 1959 according to the license plates in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee. I was born there as well. I know itís a long shot, but itís all I have.

My mother was a first cousin to Mary Elizabeth (Graham) Free and has a brother named Larry "Sonny" Graham whom this man knew. He visited my mother in Aubrey, Arkansas in the late 1950's. More information can be found at the website below.

Jerry - I wonder if you would be kind enough to transfer some memorials to me. The cemetery is Chalybeate Presbyterian in Tippah Co., MS. There are about 10 or 12 that I'm thinking of. Every Powell in that cemetery is my family (my grandmother, her brother, my great-grandparents, and my gg-grandparents), and I'm also kin to all the Rays (aunts, uncles). As well, Rev. Abner Jones & his wife Lula Powell Jones are my relatives. (That's Powells, Rays, & Jones). Thanks so much for your consideration.

RE: James Lambert
Thank you for your rapid reply. I have always believed that it takes a good person to admit when they have made a mistake. Unfortunately I'm still left with the mysteries about my family. I have seen your name lots in and around that part of the state so if you don't mind please keep me in mind if you happen to come across an older or interesting grave of the Box and Lambert(Lamberth) families. If not for what people like you do there would still be so many people like me who'd still be in the dark about their own families.
Thanks again

James Lambert
Sorry Jerry, there is one other question. In the email it says that the wife of James Lambert is buried near the front gate. Do you mind telling me what her name was? That is information that I don't have. And I didn't know his wife was buried there.
Just a reminder that what you do is appreciated by so many including me.
Thanks again

James Lambert
Hello Jerry,
I want to thank you for the time and effort you donate to findagrave. My question is this, I received an email three days ago informing me that you were unable to find the grave of James Lambert, buried at Box's Chapel Cemetery,Tippah County. His memorial#29709789 was created by you September 10th,2008'. And it says that he died in the home of his son in law, E.T.Box. Elijah Taylor an Viola Lambert Box are my great grandparents and I'm seeking all the information I can find. I was wandering if you could tell me how you found out where he died and that he was buried in this cemetery?
Thank you again
Nanette Jaco

RE: Rupert Owen
Rupert, one of my mother's favorite teachers was Rupert's sister, Miss Rodgie. I just found the death notice that I put on his find a grave as a comment today as I was looking into the Logan's of Yorkville.
I was able to connect your family into my family tree on Ancestry.com today...albeit a very weak married in a couple of times link. I didn't want your grandfather's death notice to disappear because it gives his denomination and who preached his funeral. A person's faith story is important. Thanks for messaging me. When I saw he had only one son, I wondered if there were descendents.

RE: May Jobe
I find no other May Bell or Maybelle Jobe in the tree. I did see that some censuses show him as William M and some as William H. I looked to see if any of the other William Jobes had a Lizzie or Elizabeth as a wife and I didn't find any. I see you went ahead and accepted it.

Martha Jane Street Jackson
Thank you for adding the photo of Martha Jane Street Jackson.
She is related to my husband's Jackson line.
On the findagrave listing, there are only 5 kids listed.
Didn't they have a sixth child - Joseph Jesse Jackson born in 1856?

Thanks.

William Crowel Roberts
I did go to his headstone, he is buried in Hensley Glove Cemetery, in Falkner, MS. I do not know the exact day he passed on. It was sometime between 1900-1910, but space would not allow that to be typed in. He was my husband's great-grandfather. Also, thanks so much for doing the taking of photos. We need them to remember our loved ones who have passed on. His wife's name was Mary Ann "Polly" Sides. I did not get her entire name in also.

Thanks so much,

Lea Roberts
widow of Billy Roberts from around Falkner, MS.
