Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Mississippi Delta. I have been tracing my family history for many years. Some of the families I am researaching (all with southern roots) are: Bennett, James, Skelton, Newton, Howard, Hays, Garner, Little, Westbrook, Warrick, Long, Arbuckle, Blaylock, and Sullivan. If you have relatives in Carroll County and/or Montgomery County, Mississippi in the 1800s, chances are good that our lines cross.

Lucille Pentecost #67230666
I strongly believe she was the daughter of the senior Albert Louis Pentecost #35795662 &
Nettie Lee Travis Pentecost #35795586 as she indicated on the 1910 census that she had had two children with only one living (Albert Louis Pentecost, jr plus the fact his tombstone matches hers. But I have no proof. I don't know what B & D records exist in Sunflower County, MS for that time period. I know the state hadn't started keeping death records yet. Are they all buried in the same plot?

Here is his wife: 106936817 RE your note I believe he's buried next to her. I took a 2nd look at site & there is a space but no stone. If you have info on him I will add to a list I'm compiling so that I can check against IOOF burial list. It has been tied up w/volunteers from new cem assoc trying to computerize for almost 2 yrs. I can't help as they don't want the books taken out of office & I could only do working from my home - anyway, will put him & any detail you might have on a 'look see' basis - but I believe we're safe to assume he is in IOOF Gwood.

Thomas Arnett Greenville MIssissippi Cemetery
There is a T. C. Arnett and a Mrs. T. C. Arnett both buried in Row 3 Block 96A Plot 3 of the Old Section of the Greenville (Mississippi) Cemetery. I believe that the T.C. Arnett buried there is my great-great-grandfather Thomas C. Arnett who was born June 1854 in Madison County Alabama and died in 1912 in Greenville, Mississippi. His obituary is in the July 5, 1912 edition of the Delta-Democrat. I found a listing of the graves in the Old section of the Greenville Cemetery on the Internet and there is a note saying that T. C. Arnett was the son of a Thomas Coley Arnett buried in the same Row, Block and Plot. I think that is an error. Is there anyone I could contact about taking a photo of the headstone of T. C. Arnett (b.June 16, 1854 - d. June 28, 1912)? I've searched for him for so long, I need to find out where the note regarding what his possible relationship to Thomas Coley Arnett could be (or not be).
Thanks, email:

Sammy Wakefield
I found another grave of a child in the Boyle South Cemetery. His name is listed as Sammy Wakefield, there is also a Samuel Wakefield list, but with no dates. The child was born when my Anna R. Wakefield was married to Sylvester Cade Beevers. Do you know any more about this family? Wondering if this could possibly be another child by my Sylvester and Anna. Perhaps another Wakefield family.

I think my Grandmother was a Bennett, she died before I was born. Reena was her first name?

RE: Cleo Terrell
Hi Portia,
Thank you for transferring Cleo Terrell. I'm new to find a grave, but I'm sure enjoying viewing and adding friends and family to this site. I've noticed that you have quite a few listings in the Lehrton cemetery. I'm from Ruleville and have lots of family members in Lehrton. As a matter of fact, I lived in the caretaker's house at Lehrton from approximately 1985 to 1992(got married in area around Burnham graves-Garden of Memories). I've got a lot of information about residents of Lehrton, so I hope you won't mind if a send additional information to your memorials. My relatives are Terrells, Vowells, Gibsons, Bennetts, Carlisles and Pickles. Most migrated from hill counties so I'm also interested in cemeteries in Webster, Winston and Attala counties. Thanks again for your email and I look forward to crossing paths again on Find a Grave.
