RE: Garrott families from near Senatobia
James and Sophia Staples Garrott were my gr gr gr grandparents. [I was unaware of this until I started tracing my ancestors about 8 years ago.] So, it appears that we are cousins. Had no clue any of this Garrett line lived in Panola Co. Most of James' siblings moved west, or NW from KY if memory serves me correctly. James had sons fighting for the Confederacy while he had nephews fighting for the Union.

All of my research and notes and references are on RootsWeb. I think the file No. is wbcm. I gave it the title of Footprints through Tate Co, MS.
You are probably aware of the Garrett book mentioned in the notes that briefly reference the Garrotts of Senatobia and notes that they changed their name spelling after moving south.

Look in the RootsWeb file and you will find that James had a son, Thomas B, who marreid Lydia Garrett. Lydia's parents were James and Rebecca Harriet Garrett. Both James Garrett and James Garrott lived near each other in eastern Tate Co, and both were born in Va, and both had sons named Thomas B. I feel there is some connection there between this Garrett family and my Garrott family, but I was never able to make any connection

I visited the abandoned Wright-Garrott Cemetery east of Senatobia, a few years ago. There are several tombstones, and evidence of many graves without tombstones. The cemetery is fenced and well hidden in a large clump of trees. Evidently, the Garrott family did not purchase many permanent tombstones although they were quite large land owners by the time of the Civil War.

I would appreciate any information that you might have to share. Do I have your Garrett ancestoral line in my tree? If so, I would appreciate knowing which son of Robert and Verlinda he is.
Thanks, Gene

Do you know any Wallace descendants of John Pierce Wallace? I think we would share the same Wallace line. I would like to make contact with them if so?

RE: Riverside - Lytle
Hi, I will be happy to put the area they are in. I really don't know why some people don't have headstones, I know some of my family doesn't either, I figured, either they all died within too short of a time to get some, or more likely they didn't have the money to buy one, which is sad. There are a few members of my family, I was going to price just simple headstones and see if I could afford them. I haven't gotten that far yet. I will enter what I took, at least you know they are there.
I know I have the exact place, because the girl in the office, gave me a map and showed me where other headstones were, and they were right in between these headstones. I wish I could have helped more. If I don't get to it tonight, I will for sure tomorrow. Thank you for responding.

Hi, I went to that lot, and they have no headstones, I even checked with the office, and they gave me where they should be, but they again have no headstones, I did take a picture of the grass area they are in, if you want that picture put on their memorials, please let me know.

RE: Addition of Middle Name to Joseph Rucker #32456139
Yes, you are correct. I confused his grandson through his son Elbert Marion Rucker (he was Joseph Whitner Rucker) with Joseph Sr in my research. Thanks for being a "hawk-eye!"

RE: Elias Low(e) and Lucy Dye - Spartanburg - d. 1871
Hi Pat, My best Guess would be Spartanburg, SC somewhere, But I have never Found anything,
I did find that Oscar Perry Lowe's Birth Certificate says his mother was Francis Lowe, this could be wrong, Maybe it was Lucy Francis Lowe? etc. I need to dig into this when I have more time.

Rosina Agnes "Rosa" Ruffin Ruffin
Pat,Have you found another location for Rosa? I asked for a photo a couple of times and no luck. They cannot find her.
I am thinking she may be in MS.
Does the Cemetery roles list her in the Elmwood?

I've transferred management of this memorial to you. I also received a request to add "son of Benjamin Franklin Jones" to this memorial from Find A Grave contributor #47220553. I meant to do this before I transferred it to you, but got ahead of myself. Thanks!

RE: Ole Pederson Jordal
Hi Pat,

I am a very distant relative of Ole Pederson Jordahl. The information that you provided agrees with the information that I have as well. I am the genealogist for Vosselag and have been working on tracing the emigrants for a number of years now. I was just recently in ND for the sole purpose of taking a photo of my great-great grandfather's headstone. I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I would be glad to help you out in any way I can. Ole's granddaughter wrote her memoirs in a book called I Remember, by Grandma Annie. She was the daughter of Guri and Harold Larson. I don't know if you have heard of it or not. A number of people from Scarville, Iowa packed up and went off to North Dakota, my great-great grandfather being one on them.

Let me know how I can help and you can email me direct at vivian dot white at telus dot net.

Ms. Pat, I found some more Jones for you at Union Cemetery in Panola county Ms. Kizzah and her daughter Tillitha Jones. Husband was Terrel and he has a memorial#52701335. As I have pictures I was just going to add them but they do not have memorials and I thought you may prefer to post them. On Kizzah I only could read a birth date of 11-6-1800 and wife of Terrel but Tillitha would be 11-3-1819, 7-16-1858. Hope this may help. Larry
