Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began my research in 1977. I loved hearing about my family from my Granny who was from Jefferson Co., Ms.; my grandfather was from Copiah Co., Ms.She would invite us over when someone came to her house in Texas from Mississippi. I remembered the surnames; FURR, SMITH, PIERCE, SAXON and CALLENDER to name a few. I listened to her stories. When I began my research, she was still alive. I went back to Texas & visited her. My cousin Carl Pierce & I recorded her life story in 1979. We went through a box of old photos. All grandmother's have boxes of old photos! She was an inspiration. I will be forever grateful. She died in 1985 at age 98. I visit my families' cemeteries and take photos when I can. One eventful trip to Mississippi in 2001 was very productive.

My maternal grandmother was of Spanish & Cajun families from Louisiana. Among those surnames are MIGUEZ, ROMERO, AMY, BROUSSARD, LOIGNON, ETIE & DARTES. She lived until 1995 & also died at age 98. She wrote and told me much as well. She married TURNER & FREDERICK, so those surnames also.

Lately, I have been prompted to post the additional grave locations of my deceased husband whose family surnames are KELLY, GREEN, GILSTRAP, ADCOX, LOCKABY & SHERIFF; all being from the Pickens County area of South Carolina.

My current spouse's names are among my newest include:ROYCE,ALEXANDER,CHALFANT,CASE,DOYLE,
BLASKA & GRIFFIN. Those families were from Minnesota, Iowa, Ohio, Connecticut, New Hampshire & Tennessee & Mississippi.

Most of the memorials you see are my ancestors. Please feel free to email me with any corrections. My goal is to leave a lasting legacy for future generations by passing on accurate information. You may copy any photos I contributed here to share with your family. If related to me; contact me. I have a large database with all my relatives in it. Over 30,000+.

My heartfelt appreciation to those who have created memorials or taken pictures of my family members.

William Duncan
Photo uploaded of the Square/Lot indicated as burial site - there is no stone with his name, nor are there any other Duncans in the plot. There are two unmarked slabs and indications that there are other unmarked burials, however, considering he died in 1862 and there is a stone for him and his wife in Natchez, I would speculate that he was initially buried here and later returned to Mississippi. Therefore I recommend that you either delete the Mobile record or add info that the burial there was probably temporary. I also recommend that you unlink the Mobile memorial from Annie Duncan and put a name link in the bio to her (see - How do I add a link in the F-A-G faq). As it stand now, it looks like she had two marriages to a man named William Duncan,

Nancy Jane Pierce
Do you have any other information on her?? I have a Nancy Jane Pierce in My family (My GGG Grandmother) and I have hit a brick wall on her. My Nancy Jane was born March 20, 1840 in Mississippi. she married James Martin Clopton March 15, 1860 in Hemstead Co., Arkansas. She died Nov. 19, 1864 in Arkansas and is Buried in Old Antioch Cemetery here in Arkansas. Do you know if the Nancy Jane you have may have divorced or something happen to the first husband and maybe she remarried??? Are you sure of your Nancy's birthday, you have no cemetery listed and no death date.

Addie & Mattie
Thank you! There are so many Mattie Lockabys that I will have to sort that out, none of the Matties in Mt Pisgah are buried as Singletons.
I will have to find such a marriage and figure out which she belongs to.
Mattie b 1869 is a dau bur as Lockaby, and Mattie b 1873 is 2nd wife of Geo W Lockaby.

William War
There is no marker for William War. We believe it is possible that in 1865 it would have been of wood.
I am so sorry.
