RE: Robertson Cem. Cass
Hi Jeannie, I really think there are more names to be entered for this cemetery. It has been several years since I was there - I got my information from the Cass County Historical Society in Virginia. They had a typed list of burials at this cemetery and my great grandfather was listed on one of the pages. If I remember correctly, they gave me a copy of that page so when I entered his information, I created pages for all the others on that page about the same time. I did go out to the cemetery and got lucky and found his tombstone right away but the cemetery is in such bad condition I did not try to go any farther.
About a year ago, some of the other descendants of Henry Ferguson held a family reunion in Springfield and some of them went to the cemetery but I don't think they added any additional names to this site.

James F. Jaquess

Margaret Jaquess Castle is the daughter of James F. Jaquess by his first wife, Mary Sciple. He had a son, William Garrison Jaquess, by second wife, Sarah Steele. William G. Jaquess died in 1932 in Tunica, MS. The preferred spelling for his surname is "Jaquess," but it is often spelled with a "c" or with one "s." Feel free to contact me if you want more details. I saw your post on the Jaquess Family Tree page on Facebook, by the way. I am a descendant of Jonathan and Rebekah Fraser Rankin Jaquess. Col. James is not in my direct line, but I have also researched him quite a bit. Janice Downing Knight

Thanks you, thank you for the photo of little Wilma's gravestone. Now all I have to do is figure out who her mother was!

I am transferring these memorials to you.
I was happy to start them for our cemetery.
But if you have a connection to them I am happy to transfer them to you.

Thanks, Diana
