My mother and I have been researching our family for over 35+ years. Our family surnames are: Oswalt, Driver, Anderson, Cain, Bole, Pickens, Michie, Conger, Lammey, McAlister, Rayburn, Keown, Durley, Scarbrough, Ulmer, Blue. All of my great grandparents were born in Mississippi between 1858 and 1884.

Boatwright Cemetery There was about five or more graves that were outlined in brick or stone but did not have a name. I took pictures of all of them but have no idea to whom they belong. A lot of them had flowers that were coming up, so someone took time to plant them. Shame I couldn't put a name to the graves.
RE: Samuel and Mahalah Rayburn yes you are correct and no Im not related but all the graves for this cemetery are listed under Harmontown Cemetery. There was a total of 4 graves listed just trying to get them in the same place.
I was trying to figure out how to get them combined. If you know how.
Lucinda Tucker Hi Marie! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the only headstones for the tucker family that have writing for them are Mary tucker Lyle's and t.h. tucker. The other 50 plus graves are simply marked with limestone headstones and foot stones. It is impossible to know for sure which grave belongs to casswell and Lucinda tucker. If you would like to email me for more information, please feel free! Nikibishop34@gmail.com. I live a stone throw away from the cemetery, literally. Lol
Thank you very much for your comments. That solves the puzzle and it all now checks out okay. Samuel Shanklin Rayburn is not my ancestor, but is my relative. We have common ancestor of Henry Rayburn and Sarah Shanklin. I really appreciate your help. Dave
Location of Cemetery The Find A Grave web site indicates Harmontown Baptist Cemetery is located in Tate County. I understand it is located close to the Lafayette & Tate County line. Can you confirm that this cemetery is in Tate County. I have Rayburn relatives buried there. Thank you for your help and comments. Dave Rayburn in Ft. Worth, TX e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
