Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Mississippi guy, although born in California during WWII, I was raised in Mississippi. I'm a land and offshore surveyor and have worked all over the SE USA. I have lived in South Louisiana for the last twenty-eight years, doing the offshore surveying. I'm the father of three and grandfather of two. I was into genealogy for a several years, lost interest in it about 10 - 15 years ago and just recently got back into it as retirement approaches.

Re: The Boozer family
John, I think you are right. Deloris Sanders had it as Vinzant also.

There is another son that should be added:

Please link James W. Boozer # 60546620 to his father D. (Drayton) A.(Augusta) Boozer # 60546616 and his mother, Elizabeth Vinzant Boozer # 60546617.

James was known as "Bud" Boozer back in the days when he was driving a school bus to Pulaski.

RE: Lenora Warren
Thanks, John. I knew of many of those buried in Luther Chapel Cemetery of Scott Co. and have some kin there. However, much of my information is taken from The Varner Family book by Kevin Davis and the Scott Co. Cemetery disc by Deloris Pickering Sanders. Her information includes William Diggs, the father of Lenora Diggs Warren but the death certificate she includes shows he was buried at New Chapel Cemetery, and that is where his family had a home-made marker for many years, I think your technique of using photos is more precise,

Thanks again.

RE: Burwell Brown
I believe the article mentioned the 27th but the actual date from the clipping was cut off.

RE: William Alexander Daniel
Your very welcome for your family's pic. This is something that we have turned into a family afair.
I was stationed at Ft Hood located in Killeen while I was stationed in Texas. It's about an hour outside of Waco, if that. I loved getting to travel all over while I was there. I am now stationed back on the easy coast in Virginia at Ft Eustis about six hours from my home town. With retirement close at hand it gives me a chance to settle back into the civilian groove. What did you do in the Army? When were you in?
