Hi, I'm Jonathan and I'm the webmaster for the Prentiss County Genealogical and Historical Society in Booneville, MS. I began researching my family's history at age 19 after my grandfather, Clingmin Hicks, passed away. My favorite part of research has always been visiting cemeteries and I thought a website such as this must exist, and sure enough, here it is.
I'm not related to everyone I memorialize on here so if you are please contact me and I'll transfer your relative right over unless it's a direct and closely related ancestor of mine.
I made a lot of my memorials on here before January 2007 and before the website supported linking relatives. I would be glad to link relatives together if you would like.
Carter stones at Hamilton Cemetery (Carlisle, AR) Hey Jonathan, I just wanted to note that in addition to your photo request for Calley Carter being fulfilled, I have also added photos for the other Carters surrounding her (as you asked for in your note with her photo request). Immediately around her (now with photos) are William Carter, Lucille Carter, Carl Carter, and Rufus C. Carter... but there are also other Carters nearby (on a different row), and I have added them too. The nearby Carters include Archie M., Elbert D., Joe E. (added a better quality photo), and Rosie M. & Clyde B. (added a finished/updated stone). There are many more Carters at Hamilton Cemetery, but these were the ones most immediately surrounding Calley. Hope all these are useful to you!
I wanted to request the transfer of my great grandparents Fate and Penny Markham. I know that you have relatives on this side of the family, but since they were my Grandmother's parents, I would appreciate it so much for the transfers. It would mean so much to me. Their information is listed below.
Hinkle Cemetery-Martin Savage grave I noticed your picture of Martin Savage's grave you took on 8-27-2006 and I'm glad someone found it. My husband and I tried to find it back around 1987 and couldn't find it.
Two questions. 1) I couldn't make out the inscription at the very top of the marker. Could you tell me what exactly it says? Martin Savage was my 3rd great grandfather. His son, Rev. Hamilton Giles Savage was my 2nd great grandfather and he was the 1st pastor of Hinkle Creek Baptist Church. His daughter, Mary Ann Margaret Savage (my great grandmother)was also a teacher in the Savage school in that same area. Mary Ann Margaret Savage married Louis F. Earthman and they had a daughter to die while living there. 2) I also tried to find her grave and was not able to find it either. Her name was Lou Ella Earthman, b. in 1870 and died in 1878 and is buried in Hinkle Cemetery. Have you possibly come across her marker? I would love to have a picture of her grave marker to add to my family history.
RE: Ida Carter Your welcome, wish I could have given you more but the only thing on her stone was her name Ida, and there were some other Carters on each side of the big stone I took a photo of. I don't live close to that cemetery but can get up there especially in the spring when the weather is better.
RE: Transfers Thank you Jonathan for the transfers. Since Clyde was my Mother's brother. I do appreciate you doing that for me. I have recently started back again working on my relatives and posting and linking what I can.
My Mom and Dad bought 5 burial plots many years ago there in the Eggville Cemetery. They are at the foot of Clyde and Ruth's graves and just to the left of my Grandparents, J.T. and Lida Lucas. As far as I know now, that's where my Mom and I will be buried.
I have an aunt, my Mom's sister, who lived, died and is buried in Ohio. She lived in the Fremont Ohio area and she is the only one that I don't have any information on and I would like to find them and get them linked to their family.
If you have any suggestions on the best way to finding their burial site.....cemetery, pics of headstone, etc., please let me know. They lived in Sandusky county, Fremont, Ohio. ___________________________
