|Dorothy Smith||RE: Wyley Smith - Memorial# 27958987|
I'm having problems with my account but I'll try again! Thanks for adding the information to Wyley Smith's page. He was the brother of my great grandfather Fayette. It looks like there were four brothers who fought in the war. At one time I read a document where the surviving brothers were considered AWOL because they went back to work the harvest.
Wyley ENLISTED in the 33rd but due to casualties, it was combined with the 34th and rolled into the 45th. I've found at least two sites with this info but no original docs to verify.
Happy to meet you. D.

|Janice Brock||Grave Markers for Joseph May Cemetery|
The Judith Robinson Chapter, MSDAR, is requesting contributions from descendants of Joseph May, Sr, to help us purchase grave markers for his wife, Sarah Jane Campbell McLain May; Joseph May Jr's wife, Clarissa Daughtry May, and Hiram May - all 3 to be placed in the Joseph May Cemetery in Walthall Co, MS - which DAR members and other interested volunteers are working to clean up and reclaim.
Generous contributions have already been made by these well-known Joseph May descendants: Doug McBroom, Pam Schultz, Gail Chandler, Anna Louise Petersen, and Buddy Smith - and others. Any amount would be appreciated and can be mailed to: Susan Boyd, Regent; Judith Robinson Chapter, MSDAR; 706 Jackson Avenue, McComb, MS 39648. A public ceremony and reception is being planned after the completion of this project - hopefully sometime this Fall.

|Sandra Williams Wallace||RE: John Holly Williams|
I forgot to mention that Zula Mae Williams Wright (my grandmother) is the sister of John Holly Williams, so he adopted his nieces Willie Mae and Zula Mae and nephew John W. That makes my great uncle my legal grandfather, John Holly Williams. We called him Uncle John. I told you it was confusing!

|Sandra Williams Wallace||RE: John Holly Williams|
I'm so sorry to be so late in replying to your email.
Yes, I am related to this Williams line. My mother Zula Mae Williams was one of three siblings adopted by John Holly Williams, his wife Kathleen and his step grandmother Lilly Greenlee Williams (yes, all three were on the adoption papers!) after the death of their mother. Their father William Wright had deserted the family several months before my mother was born, and my mother's mother Zula Mae Williams Wright died of tuberculosis in a sanitarium 6 weeks after my mother was born. It's kind of confusing, I know.
I would love you chat with you! Feel free to email me at:
firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll give you my phone number. I'm very happy to connect with you!

|Doug McBroom||Handy P. MAY|
I posted a picture of Handy's tombstone. Janice, findagrave.com volunteer, and some friends found the stone buried. Note the dates and "Handy", not "Hardy". They are reclaiming the cemetery and will place the military tombstone of Joseph MAY Sr later this spring.....Doug McBroom (MAY Family)

Patti, I added a picture of the "new" Joseph MAY tombstone. Janice Brock (one of our MAY cousins in Tylertown MS) ordered the tombstone. It will placed in the cemetery this spring/summer by the local DAR chapter. They are also carefully digging through the leaves and brush to hopefully find some of the tombstones there when a census was taken in 1976. ...Doug McBroom (MAY Family)

|Ron (Ronnie Lee) Collins||RE: Vaiden|
Having grown up there, I never heard of the Jackson Cemetery until someone asked me about it last week.
You may want to contact Durward Stanton, the Circuit Clerk in Vaiden - 662.464.5476 or Clarence Pierce, former Mississippi Representative - 662.464.7777.
I'm curious as to where it is too.

|Dean Hirst||RE: Memorial# 98907289|
Hi Patti: After looking at the memorial I would have to say yes, I probably got the info from Ancestry.com. Now that was 1.5 years ago so if there were any additions or changes, I have not kept up with them. I go to Ancestry.com quite frequently for additional info to add to the memorials. I find it very interesting and at times, exciting. Thanks for the update.

No worry on the late thanks, better late than never!
Not to be a pill here, but you took out her last name on the memorial, you've got both names in the maiden name field and nothing in the surname field. You might want to fix that.

Thank you, Patti, for the additional information. I just added it to his memorial. I always appreciate it when someone sends me more to make the ones I add as good as possible. Lucy

Patti, John had a son named Jeremiah but I do not have any brothers Isaac or Jeremiah. I would be happy to know exactly what you have and I will make corrections to memorial if they are wrong. Debra

He is my 3rd Great Grandfather and I found his middle name on a Walker tree as Jeremiah. I am still not sure if that is correct. Debra

|Doug McBroom||RE: Beauvoir - Enos MAY|
We believe the "Mrs E. May" buried in Beauvoir is John Winston MAY's wife, Sarah Elizabeth HIGHTOWER MAY. She lived to be 85, which matches the tombstone. Since her name/dates are on John Winston MAY's tombstone, our thought is the Mrs E. MAY tombstone was the one placed when she was buried. John Winston's tombstone looks much newer, so we thought a family member added it later. My wife's family lives in Biloxi, so I'm going to visit Beauvoir when there next and see if they kept any burial records. They built a huge library there for Jefferson Davis, so maybe they kept a log. Doug (a MAY genealogist)

|John Andrew Meyer||Thomas Marion Case|
Thank you very much for the corrections about Thomas Case. Please look at them on his memorial to see if I made the corrections correctly.
P.S. The Minyard family are scattered throughout my family tree. It seems to me that everyone in Mississippi are somehow related.
