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!

RE: John Holly Williams
Hi Patti,

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: and I'll give you my phone number. I'm very happy to connect with you!

Handy P. MAY
I posted a picture of Handy's tombstone. Janice, 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)

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)

RE: Memorial # 121811859
Hi Patti,

Sorry at this time I have no answers for you. However, I am excited to find someone else in my Mathis/Kyzar research. I will start researching this immediately. John Adison Mathis was my gg grandfather.

RE: Vaiden
Hi Patti,

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.

RE: Memorial# 98907289
Hi Patti: After looking at the memorial I would have to say yes, I probably got the info from 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 quite frequently for additional info to add to the memorials. I find it very interesting and at times, exciting. Thanks for the update.

Sarah Hightower May #11445855
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, Doug McBroom (MAY family)

Martha Yarborough 85553577 and Happy New Year
Hi Patti,

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.

Walter Major Sartin Jr
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

RE: Walkers
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

RE: Walkers
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

Would you consider transferring his account to me? I have his date of death and would like to update his information.

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.

James Maddox May
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

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)
