RE: John Burcham Lakey Sr.
Okay this is getting really interesting. I found where he was married to Rebecca Ann Spurlock but I can't find out where she is buried.Then I foun where he m/2 to Synthia E.C.Cobb in 1890.Then I found where he was married to probably her sister Mary
Martha Cobb in 1920.Then I found a date for his death,which was June 29,1930 in Mountain Home,Baxter County,Ark.But I found him buried in the Lakey Cemetery West of Ava.Interesting to say the least.

RE: Simon Lakey, Sr 1828-1913
I love sharing family history. As a matter of fact I am going to the Library in Independence MO to do more research. I was just in Ava MO this summer and visited with some cousins. Do you have a account? Please let me know what you would like to know and if I have the info I will be glad to share. You are the first cousin I have been in contact with from the Wheeler side. Simon Lakey/Sarah Love's daughter Sarah Lakey is my Great grandmother married to William Hartley.

My email is

Best REgards,
Nell (Hartley) Beckman

Family connections
I was wondering if you are on ancestry? I am researching my family heritage and it looks like we have two family lines in common - Lakey and Wheeler.

Kezziah Romines Lakey
Morning Pat;
As to what page that query was on all was remember
it was in the back.What got my attention was the name Caroline. Now I've done my fair share all seeing the research & I don't recall seeing the
name of Caroline with any of the Lakey men.Could be wrong tho lol.

Dora M McBride Moore
Hey lady how are you? I've got some paper work on the Strongs & the man you put in as Dora's husband is not the one they have down for her. They have that she is married to a Harvey Moore.

RE: Providence Church Cemetery
Good Morning Pat! The Methodist Church has not heard of this site because it was so long ago. A friend who lives here in Lowndes County, Mississippi found the deed for Providence Methodist Episcopal Church, I located it on the county maps by meets and bounds description. It is on the land owned by Rev. Nathaniel Lawrence who settled here in the 1820's and is behind his once plantation home. Also, I have a narrative written by a family member in the 1940's who said his father told him to "bury me up yonder in the old Providence Graveyard". I still have more research work to do before I can be absolutely sure. There are over 100 graves in this cemetery but only about 20 stones. More work has to be done on this.
