|JRH||RE: Hattie Graham Nixon #132787996|
Ok. I have done more research and all census records and death indexes only show Hattie. I can not find in any records the name Harriet. The family did not have Harriet on the marker only Hattie. I will add a note to memorial about the name Harriet.

Hi. Please tell me. Is Mrs Nixon a relative of yours?

I would need to see a source in order to know to move them into a different cemetery. a photo unfortunately doesn't neccesarily prove location unless you have the GPS coordinates . (as in using the find a grave app) There have been bogus edits lately where people are taking a photo and then just saying the grave is in so and so cemetery. You can send any info along and I can add it to the bio. I'm very careful with info so I will look forward to any source info you can provide thanks!
|E L Hon||RE: Death Date for Richard Morton (b. 1794)|
I was not aware of the discrepancies in his year of death. I will investigate and see if I can come up with anything. I definitely know that there are mistakes in the "Descendants of Jonas & Joseph" book. I have found them through research. I've corrected them on my personal pages of the book. I'll let you know if I find anything concrete. Nice to hear from you. Lynn

Go ahead and move your memorial into the cemetery and I'll ask for the photo on the other memorial to be moved to yours. Once that's done we can delete the other memorial.
|MWV||RE: cecil clay stephens|
I tried what you suggested but mine only ask to browse my computer. Any other ideas?

I see you have his web site. I took a picture of his tombstone Monday on my cellphone but not sure how to add it to your site.

|MyFamilyHistorian||Mildred Terrell Littlefield|
Hello, I noticed you added the photo of Mildred Littlefield on her memorial page. I am researching the Littlefield family as there is much rumor and speculation in my family that an ancestor of mine named George Wiley (or Washington) White may be her grandchild, however I am unable to figure out which of her many children is a parent.
Our family record names Fleming and Mildred Littlefield moving to Texas from Georgia. Our ancestor's mother's name has been listed as either Cora or Mildred Littlefield and it was believed she married a Charles E. White.
The story continues that Charles E. White was killed by Mexicans and his wife's step brothers (named John and Charles White) killed them and went on the run. Cora/Mildred would then routinely receive money from those step-brothers until her early death.
Do you or anyone who might read this have idea of where this story came from? Fleming and Mildred Littlefield fit, but Cora is not in the family and the only daughter for Mildred was a Martha Mildred, who married Theo Harrell.
It's a family mystery I'm anxious to solve.

Hi Pat...I searched by obituaries and found one for Savilla M Sloan which I have posted to her memorial. However, I do not have one for her husband. I will be going to the library in the next couple of weeks and will search their records to try to find on obituary for him.
|Gene Waldrop||RE: Garrott families from near Senatobia|
James and Sophia Staples Garrott were my gr gr gr grandparents. [I was unaware of this until I started tracing my ancestors about 8 years ago.] So, it appears that we are cousins. Had no clue any of this Garrett line lived in Panola Co. Most of James' siblings moved west, or NW from KY if memory serves me correctly. James had sons fighting for the Confederacy while he had nephews fighting for the Union.
All of my research and notes and references are on RootsWeb. I think the file No. is wbcm. I gave it the title of Footprints through Tate Co, MS.
You are probably aware of the Garrett book mentioned in the notes that briefly reference the Garrotts of Senatobia and notes that they changed their name spelling after moving south.
Look in the RootsWeb file and you will find that James had a son, Thomas B, who marreid Lydia Garrett. Lydia's parents were James and Rebecca Harriet Garrett. Both James Garrett and James Garrott lived near each other in eastern Tate Co, and both were born in Va, and both had sons named Thomas B. I feel there is some connection there between this Garrett family and my Garrott family, but I was never able to make any connection
I visited the abandoned Wright-Garrott Cemetery east of Senatobia, a few years ago. There are several tombstones, and evidence of many graves without tombstones. The cemetery is fenced and well hidden in a large clump of trees. Evidently, the Garrott family did not purchase many permanent tombstones although they were quite large land owners by the time of the Civil War.
I would appreciate any information that you might have to share. Do I have your Garrett ancestoral line in my tree? If so, I would appreciate knowing which son of Robert and Verlinda he is.
