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.

RE: Kasiah Romines Lakey correction
Hey Pat, I found where John Burcham Lakey is buried quiet by accident. He is buried in the Lakey cem, along with a Hartley. You know there is two Lakey cemeteries. The one where John is buried & one that has literally been destriyed. That really ticks me off when people do that.

RE: John Scott Levan
Hello, we use a high res digital slr camera, sometimes with a large flash depends on the circumstances. they are scaled to meet findagraves size requirements and uploaded. We are different than many people, we record the entire cemetery by photographing it and reading it from the photos. If we have a reference such as written transcriptions or ones on find a grave many times they will fill in the blanks as long as part of the stone is readable. There were several there like this stone that were very hard to make out this one photographed very well. The only think we do is remove grass from a stone so it can be photographed, I don't like touching the stones at all and as with many of these older cemeteries time has damaged the stones as well as vandals.

George L. Sanders
Hi Pat,

I went and made a memorial to him, as the easiest way to let you see the picture, I now know the picture came to me through a cousin Gary Sanders. I George is more closely related to you, I will transfer the memorial to you, and you can even delete it and re do it if you want.

Hi Pat,

I was told that George was buried in the cemetery where you have his daughter Blanch, but I see you don't have a memorial to him there. Is he not buried there? Do you have a picture of him? I do, but don't know where I got it.
