Mt Pisgah Cemetery - Quitman MS
I hope to get to this cemetery in May -- thinking there may be more Carneys and Satchers buried there (I was working off a list from many years ago). I see you just added some other surnames here.

RE: John Carney # 95394839
You tend to document people and cemetery graves as I do. Yes there are people looking for these graves and like me I may know they are from a certain county but have no clue as to where buried. People do not always let you know (or give thanks) that you have helped but I see my photos crop up on other web sites, so I know.

So a great big THANK YOU for these Carney photos.

RE: John Carney # 95394839
Thank you! The Carneys are my mother's mothers line and I have been looking for Carneys in Choctaw county for a long time. So was so excited to see the headstones you posted.

John Carney # 95394839
You added a photo for this memorial but this John Carney was in the Civil War, so would not be the same person as your photo 1856-1941. There should be a civil war John in this cemetery. So please
1) delete your photo from John Carney # 95394839
2) create a memorial for John W Carney and add your photo? then link him to Martha Emily Carney 117936058 as this is her husband.

thank you for your help!

You're welcome. I guess I missed it when I did the other transfers some time ago.
