I WAS BORN IN MISSISSIPPI, RAISED IN MEMPHIS TN. AND STARTED WORKING ON GENEALOGY AFTER RETIREMENT FROM WORKING IN CREDIT UNIONS FOR 30 YEARS. WE ARE IN LOUISIANA NOW AND DUE TO POOR EYESIGHT, GOT A COMPUTER AND HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY ANCESTRY SINCE THEN. WE ORIGINALLY MOVED HERE TO BABY-SIT TWO OF OUR GREAT GRAND CHILDREN. WE LOVE BEING A PART OF THEIR LIVES AND SEEING THEM OFTEN. MY HUSBAND TELLS ME THAT HE HAS MET MORE FRIENDS AND RELATIONS SINCE WE MET THAN IN ALL THE OTHER YEARS COMBINED. I REALLY ENJOY LOOKING UP RELATIONS AND TRYING TO FIND PROOF. I GUESS THAT'S THE DETECTIVE IN ME. I WORKED COLLECTIONS WHILE AT THE CREDIT UNIONS AND MY LATE HUSBAND WAS A RETIRED POLICEMAN AND PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR. I HELPED HIM AT NIGHT & ON WEEK-ENDS. I GUESS YOU COULD SAY IT IS IN MY BLOOD.
MY ANCESTORS ARE MCCOLLOUGH, WALTERS, BRANDON, PIERCE, CARLISLE, MCIVER ,BAGWELL. MOORE, WILLIAMS AND COGWELL, TO NAME A FEW.

I was in Bethesda Cemetery this past weekend with my family taking pictures of family headstones. Woolfolks figure in our past and I just happened to have taken a picture of Robbie Lee Woolfolk's marker. I uploaded the picture to her memorial for you just now.
Ed Earl Howe I noticed that you entered Ed Earl Howe in Singleton Springs in Strayhorn, MS. I've put a picture of his monument on his memorial for you. You did not include his DOB and DOD. His name is spelled ED (You have EDD) and his DOB is 09/12/1911 and his DOD is 04/12/1979. I thought I would let you know.
Oh, you duplicated an entry for Judy Ann Coalburn Jenkins on January 26th when I had already entered her on January 14th. Judy was my cousin.
You have a lot of folks around these parts. When did you live here, or did you. MY husbands folks were all over these parts. Dook and Liz Taylor. He had 8 siblings and she had 4, so if you lived near Coldwater, Independence or the thriving metropolis of Poagville, you probably know them.
The only photos I have are of the tombstones for Robert, Edward, Virginia, Winton, Laura and Cecil McCullough. I entered them on Findagrave yesterday. They are all in Magnolia Cemetery which is about 5 miles from my house. Do you want me to send them to you via email or the good old fashioned way?
Spelling of McCullough/McCollough Hey! I answered a photo request today for a couple of McCulloughs in Magnolia Cemetery for someone. (May have been you) Anyway, I saw several others and took photos of them as well. When I checked to see if they had been entered on Find A Grave, I noticed there was a difference in the spelling. In my photos the spelling is McCullough instead of McCollough. Just wanted to give you a heads up. If you need any other photos taken around these parts (Tate county Mississippi) Just drop me a line email@example.com Patty of Poagville (aka POP)
Thank You !! Raynelle, Thank you so much for the links. Did you contact Find A Grave? I sent them a E-Mail this morning and when I went to her page to leave a flower my name was there. Checked my E- mail and yours was there also one from F.A.G. Didn't expect to get them that quick. Again thanks For all of your help. Good luck in finding all of your family. A Friend, Martha
