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.

RE: Zenas Alexander
Sorry, I have removed the picture. According to Steele Creek's records, there is only one Zenas Alexander in the cemetery.

Transfered Management
I am happy to transfer the management of this memorial to a relative. I am a member of the Eastern Star Cemetery Board and a few years ago we found that few of the grave sites were on Find a Grave. Since this is an old cemetery and many families have moved away from Wilson we believe that this is a way they can keep in touch with the graves of their loved ones even from great distances away. Thank you for your service in this cause.

Hi Leslie,
Thank you for the transfers of my grandmother & great grandmother's memorials. I will pass them to my granddaughter some day. She is a much better photographer and I'll update the photos I provided you. Thanks again.
Stay tuned....

Cool ! Clara was my grandpa Bob's sister.
That means the you are my cousin on the Badon side. Clara's husband was my grandma's brother. Well, I should explain that my grandpa "Bob Badon" married Leoncia Guidry.
Then, his sister "Clara Badon" married Leoncia's brother. My mom was double cousins with Clara's kids. But Leoncia died in March of 1930 and now, no one remembers her. They only remember his 2nd wife "Agnes". I knew Warren Guidry and 'still have contact with Clara's grand daughter "Loretta". I'm sure you know Loretta Guidry, Henry.
Do you have a tree on
My f/b name is the same as on my Find A Grave profile.
Loretta is on my f/b friends. Except that I haven't seen her on in several months. I do, however still see her daughters post on f/b.
'Later "cuz" J J
