Bio Photo Hi there,

I live in Mississippi and have been researching my family history off and on for about 10 years now. I love uncovering new ancestors and finding new cousins. Cemeteries have fascinated me since I was a little girl so I'm glad my daughter-in-law told me about this site. I've spent a lot of time in local cemeteries copying tombstones and will try to load them all on here as time allows.

Surnames I am researching are: Schmidt/Smith, Sartin, Townsend, Wilson, Mason, Rutland, May, Farley, Barnes, Brister, Owens, Magee, Ingram, Williams, Boyanton, Jordan, Bridges, Galbreth, Carouth, Crosby, Walker, Jones, Allgood, Case, Stewart, Hunt, and four to five more Smith lines. I'll be more than happy to share and compare any information I have.

Please let me know if I have any mistakes that need to be corrected.

Take care,

Lee family
My father's siblings are full blooded same parents that are listed.
Seems there is miscommunication as they are marked ** meaning half siblings.
Please make the corrections that are necessary to removed the ** by his siblings names.
Thank you.

Jackson family
I just looked at the Jackson family in Mississippi. I want you to know that I did not know when I did the research that I was related to the Jackson. An early researcher thought my great great grandmother was Elizabeth Davis, She was wrong and it took me year to find out that she was the daughter of George Jackson and Elizabeth Russell. My 2x great grandmother Elizabeth Jackson was married first to Henry L. Stevens. Steven Jackson the brother of George Jackson was married to Mahala Carpenter. Steven died and Henry L Stevens died and my 2nd great grandfather John Curran Johnston married Mahala Carpenter Jackson. Mahala died during the Civil War and Henry L Stevens died at about the same time. My 2nd great grandfather then married #4 Elizabeth Jackson Steven's. As I said when I was doing research I was Looking at the Carpenter family connections to the "Nathan Smith Settlement" as well as the Minyard, Guess, and other families that are related to me.

RE: Jacksons in Vaiden, Mississippi
I must tell you that I am quite surprised about the Smith Jackson connection. I have long suspected that the Jackson family were at or near the Nathan Smith Settlement but had over looked the family of Elizabeth Jackson being married to Nathan Smith. Elizabeth's younger brother George Jackson is my 3rd great grandfather. Cecelia Gordon and William Jackson are my 4th great grandparents.
When I opened Elizabeth Jackson's profile I see that her husband is Nathan Smith.
As to where I get my information I do a lot of research. I have poured over the Nathan Smith Settlement many times and saw that the Jackson family and the Carpenter family had come from the same places as well as the other families mentioned in the document concerning Cherokee intrusion on Cherokee lands.

Are we related?

RE: Jacksons in Vaiden, Mississippi
I hope thatyou are still doing research about the Jackson family. Tying in the Jackson family to the Nathan Smith settlement would be fantastic.

Before I write to much I want to hear from you.

Porter Williams. Since I added a duplicate memorial, would you like me to add my photo of his headstone to your original memorial and then delete mine? You could add the cemetery location to the one you created.
