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.

Homer and Denver
Do you by chance remember William Thomas Collins? He was "raised" by Homer from what I have heard. William was the son of George Owen COllins.

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.

Monroe County AR
Hello, I noticed youve done some research in Monroe County AR. I have several relatives from that area and have been researching them. I also noticed you have some of the graves documented for Upper Cemetery near Keevil. Do you know who manages that cemetery or any others for that area? I am researching Dicksons or Rays from the 1870-1950's so if you happen to come across anything on them Id really appreciate it. I noticed in your profile you are searching for some names and Blaylock was one of them. There are many Blaylocks here in LeFlore County OK. Most of them have history dating back to pre state hood and are of Choctaw desendants. It might be worth looking into.

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