|Bio and Links|
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.|

I'm also a Howard from Carroll co. line.
I also live in the delta. I see you have been
doing this a lot long than I and was wondering if you know anything about Lott H Howard family, or John Q A Howard both from Carroll Co. Ms. I think my great grandfather is the James Howard age 1 in the 1880 census with Ellen, Sallie A. 17, Callie 14, Stephen 12, Allice 8, and grandson James 1.
Thank You for any info you may have.
|Ann Bennett||Benjamin F Bennett in Marietta|
This is my grandfather. He was born in 1867 in Germany. I got this information from a census and family bible. I no longer have access to the bible. Most of the Bennett families in Georgia have a British origen.
The family name was originally Benet. They were ethnic Germans who lived in a section of France and Germany that was swapped between the countries. When the Germans took over, this family emigrated. I don't know when. I know the brother had the name of Simon. His mother had the last name of Lotheridge which I know is English. From the family story, they anglicized the last name and spoke only English since they were American now.
Benjamin F. Bennett fought in the Spanish American war and was an ambulance driver during World War I. I saw a picture of the soldiers from Georgia and recognized my grandfather and another soldier had to be a close relative because he looked like my brother. Benjamin F. Franklin looked very much like my father.
I hope this helps with your search.
Hi. I added his headstone today. While I was out there I also took a pic of Elizabeth Lancaster. I wish I could have gotten the dates but it is over half way buried in the ground.

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.

He was my great grand father. Guy Harvey Bennett was my grandfather. I never knew anyone other than my pop Guy. Would love to know more!
|Collins Family||My grandmother was Mary|
Hi my father is one of Mary's children; the youngest Donnie W Collins and is 89 and lives in Kenner La.
|Lois Tanner||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.

We have corresponded before regarding the Arbuckle Line. I added you as my friend as I am trying to get better organized with my research and contacts. Melinda Arbuckle Risner is my GGrandmother.
