Harmony Cemetery Neshoba County MS
Hi John. I see where you took pictures of the Harmony Cemetery in the House community of Neshoba county. My question is, Did you take pictures of all headstones in cemetery? I have a request for a Robert Neese in that cemetery and was wondering if it is accessible since you say its on forest land. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Edward Grant Fortner
Edward Grant Fortner and Eva Gardner Fotner were the parents of James, Evelyn and Thelma.

I have all the info on Evelyn and her descendents. I have your email address I believe, and I can send it to you privately.

Edward Grant Fortner
Is there by any chance a connection between the Edward Grant Fortner that was married to Eva Fortner ( )

and the husband/wife duo of William Martin Fortner and Martha Riser? Was this same Edward Grant their youngest son (born around 1888)?


Allen (husband of Edward/Eva's great-great granddaughter)

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.
