About St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery in Makawao, Maui, Hawaii.
I have no relatives buried there. My wife goes to the thrift store there and I transcribe burials while I wait for her. If you have information about people buried there please let me know what you would like to add.

Jacksons in Vaiden, Mississippi
Hi John,

I'm working on the old Nathan Smith (Franklin/Lincoln County)who married Elizabeth Jackson. She was reported to be a daughter of William Jackson and Celia Gordon who died in Carroll County, Mississippi. Could you please share where the Jackson Cemetery in Vaiden is located or where your information came from? Anything you could share would be most appreciated.

Thanks,

Patti Smith

You never know..
I was approached by a friend today who is trying to reconnect with family. She handed me a tattered funeral program from 1987. She said, "Tom, work your magic." I spent my lunch hour searching and found the woman's parents, which you had posted while your wife shopped at the thrift store. We are well on our way to reuniting this family, thanks to you. You never know.

Charles Marion Smith
I saw your message to Buena Smith (Jan 2013) today. T. S. Buie wrote a Smith Family History of Marlboro County, SC in 1966. It shows George and Martha (Patsy) Smith as having twelve children. One is Charles Marion; he married Abigal McKinnon and they had 4 children; he next married her sister, Jennet, in Marion County GA in 1855 and they had 5 children before moving on to Carroll County, MS about 1871.

I got this info from Jane C. Smith, a descendant of Charles Marion & Jennet through their son Thomas Holton Smith. About 10-15 years ago you could contact her through the e-mail address pearl@mindspring.com, but I don't know if it's still good.

I am descended from Charles & Jennet's son Rufus Baroner Smith, his daughter Jeannette, and her son Cyrus Butt III. I'd be happy to help more if I can. Sincerely, David Butt (#47598432)

on children of Stonewall Jackso and Peoria Allen Bailey
The correct name of Willie May Bailey born in 1898 in Arkansas is "Neely Mae Bailey".

Allen Relatives
Hi - I was looking for ancestors of Isaiah Spencer Allen hoping to find a connection to Richard Allen who was born somewhere around 1725-1735 and lived and died in Chester Co SC. Do you know of any male from your Allen line that may want to join the Allen yDNA project?
Thanks!

RE: Uncle Joe
Tim Newman took an Ancestry DNA test, matching him to cousins...including Mary James who left a message on my public board at findagrave. Have you taken the ancestry dna test? May be able to find more relatives that way
