Benjamin Cottrell Gray, Jr./Cottrell Family Cem.
I left a message for you July 22, 2016 with the obituary for Benjamin Cottrell Gray, Jr. #54627830 to add to his Bio. There had been some confusion about the Cottrell and Sylvestria Cemeteries but the corrections have been made. He is now shown only in the Cottrell Cemetery. Could you check my message from July 22, 2016 and add his obit to the Bio? Thank you.

RE: Williams in Decatur
Hi, I believe I replied before but am hoping perhaps you discovered more on Stephen C Williams family? Richard Williams of Decatur or Newton area is my husbands ancestor.

It was with sincere regret that his friends learned of the death of Ben Gray, Jr., which occurred in Memphis on Saturday last, at the residence of his uncle, D. M. Scales. His many noble qualities endeared him to his companions and made him the pride of his parents and relatives. The remains were brought here Sunday and laid to rest in the family burying ground, near Hudsonville.

Hey. I came across your memorial for Clinton O'kelley on ancestry and I actually have the same person, same names, same dates with a headstone in Peachtree Memorial Cemetery over in Norcross, GA.

Just wondering how much you know about this person, and if your memorial (or mine) is just for veteran purposes?

Here's my memorial for him (I photographed the headstone myself)...Find A Grave Memorial# 155716571

(maybe we can link our memorials together for future researchers)

Hello Catherine. Regarding memorial 54625554 buried in the Sylvestria Cemetery in Marshall County, Mississippi, We've learned that a duplicate cemetery called the Cottrell Family Cemetery has been created. We've moved our memorials to the Cottrell Family Cemetery, and plan to have the Sylvestria Cemetery deleted. Mary Henrietta is not listed in the Cottrell Family Cemetery, so yours would not be a duplicate. We will wait until your memorial is moved to Cottrell before we have the Sylvestria Cemetery deleted. Thank you.

That goes the same for Benjamin Cottrell. He is also in the Sylvestria Cemetery and the Cottrell Family Cemetery. Linda

You have Thomas in the Cottrell Family Cemetery and someone else has him in the Sylvestria Cemetery all in Marshall County, MS. Thought you would like to know so it can be investigated and fixed. Linda

RE: Williams in Decatur
Hi, I was wondering if you have discovered any further info on your Williams family? It seems odd that both yours and Richard's family are so illusive and in the same area, but Stephen is not a name repeated in Richard's family. Richard Williams is buried in Thames family cemetery near Little Rock, MS. I am not sure if that is Newton or Lauderdale county. Richard and his wife were married in Madison County, MS

You're quite welcome! Love it when I find obits such as his, with such good info.

Done! I managed to somehow figure out how to edit the photos, so they're a little better than original.
