|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)

|Doug McBroom||Joseph MAY|
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)

I added the info to the Townsend couple you sent me a long time ago. If you are in agreement with this I will leave.
Thank you very much

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.

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.

Patti, I asked the findagrave manager for Sarah HIGHTOWER MAY's memorial page to add her obituary today. Hopefully, it will be posted soon for you to review. If you'd like a copy, please email me, email@example.com. Doug McBroom (MAY family)

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)

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.

Also, just found dau Mary Jane MAY HERCUM's TX Death Cert. Her brother George signed it as she was living with him in El Paso TX. Her parents via the death cert are "James May" and "Annie Coburn, b NC". So, we all definitely have something wrong....Doug

|Doug McBroom||James Maddox May|
I'm no longer sure we have the right James MAY dying in Camp Greenwood. James' youngest child, George Coburn MAY, was born in 1868, so James could not have died during the Civil War. George's TX Death Cert does not list his parents, but with "Coburn" being the middle name (mother's maiden name), census records and the genealogies we inherited, we have something wrong. Any ideas? And, we all have James' middle name as "Madison". Appreciate any help you can provide. Doug (a MAY genealogist)

|debbie smith ricker||Hughey and Eunice Linton Smith tombstone|
Mimipatti, would you take a look a the photo you took of Hughie and Eunice Smith's tombstone. (He is memorial #35524087.) There appears to be an additional stone between them for a Susie(?) Lee Smith, but she is not listed in the cemetery. I would assume that she is Hughey and Eunice's daughter, based on her tombstone placement. Do you want to add this person's memorial, based on the tombstone info?
Thanks, Debbie Smith Ricker

|Miles Causey||Sarah Jane Campbell May|
There seems to be a mix up somewhere on the name of Joseph May's second wife. An 1832 deed recorded in Yazoo Co., MS identifies MARY MAY of Pike Co. as the mother of Littleberry May, born abt 1783, who, in turn, has been established as a son of Joseph May, Sr. I have not researched this family in any depth, but this deed seems to cast considerable doubt on Joseph's wife's name being "Sarah".

I came across his marker on the old Natchez Trace last year, and recently created his memorial. Since you are related to him, and I'm not, would you like to manage his memorial? Do you have more info on him? I have found that he was the Postmaster of the (shortlived) town of Selzertown, where he is buried, but other than that I have not really found out much. I have copied a few things from a couple books I found at the Natchez Library that I can share with you also, if you're interested.
