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,

Joseph MAY
Patti, I added a picture of the "new" Joseph MAY tombstone. Janice Brock (one of our MAY cousins in Tylertown MS) ordered the tombstone. It will placed in the cemetery this spring/summer by the local DAR chapter. They are also carefully digging through the leaves and brush to hopefully find some of the tombstones there when a census was taken in 1976. ...Doug McBroom (MAY Family)

RE: Memorial # 121811859
Hi Patti,

Sorry at this time I have no answers for you. However, I am excited to find someone else in my Mathis/Kyzar research. I will start researching this immediately. John Adison Mathis was my gg grandfather.

I added the info to the Townsend couple you sent me a long time ago. If you are in agreement with this I will leave.
Thank you very much

RE: Vaiden
Hi Patti,

Having grown up there, I never heard of the Jackson Cemetery until someone asked me about it last week.

You may want to contact Durward Stanton, the Circuit Clerk in Vaiden - 662.464.5476 or Clarence Pierce, former Mississippi Representative - 662.464.7777.

I'm curious as to where it is too.

RE: Memorial# 98907289
Hi Patti: After looking at the memorial I would have to say yes, I probably got the info from Now that was 1.5 years ago so if there were any additions or changes, I have not kept up with them. I go to quite frequently for additional info to add to the memorials. I find it very interesting and at times, exciting. Thanks for the update.

Sarah Hightower May #11445855
Patti, I asked the findagrave manager for Sarah HIGHTOWER MAY's memorial page to add her obituary today. Hopefully, it will be posted soon for you to review. If you'd like a copy, please email me, Doug McBroom (MAY family)

Martha Yarborough 85553577 and Happy New Year
Hi Patti,

No worry on the late thanks, better late than never!

Not to be a pill here, but you took out her last name on the memorial, you've got both names in the maiden name field and nothing in the surname field. You might want to fix that.

Thank you, Patti, for the additional information. I just added it to his memorial. I always appreciate it when someone sends me more to make the ones I add as good as possible. Lucy
