Bio Photo "Do not forget to do good to others, and share with them, because such sacrifices please God." Hebrews 13:16

I'm a genealogy addict who is researching my family lines of Alexander, Barnett, Beard, Boyd, Dunaway, McBrier, Mullins, Newman, O'Neal, Pevey, Rutland, Sauls, Sistrunk, Tynes, Wallace, and Womack.

Many of the memorials that I have created or maintain are my ancestors, family members, or friends.

If you wish to request a transfer of a memorial, PLEASE follow the Find A Grave guidelines.

As I am human and do make mistakes, please feel free to email me with any corrections. My goal is to serve future generations by passing on accurate information.

My sincerest appreciation to those who have created memorials and taken pictures for my family members. I pray God's blessings on you.

Do not stand by my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am diamonds that glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift rush of butterflies in joyous flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry.
I am not there. I did not die.

RE: Otto Lambert

Unfortunately what you see in the picture is what appears on the stone. His crypt is one of the wall vaults, and they are in incredibly bad condition. Most of the wall vault name plaques are long gone (maybe 5% remain), and the only thing identifible are an occasional number over the crypt (less than 10 per cent). In the case of Otto Lambert, there is actually a number over the vault, but it is very difficult to read. What you see in the photo is actually the brick work and plaster that covers the slot of the vault.

To confirm the location I also checked a few areas I suspected could be an alternate gravesite, but none of them were a possible location.

The vaults are the oldest of the gravesites at Cypress Grove. Some are in such bad shape, particularly on the opposite wall, the upper tier remains had to be moved.

Sorry I couldn't have provided a better photo because of its condition, but that is the location.

Joseph Lambert Photo
Thank you for taking the time and for making the effort to find and photograph the grave of Joseph Lambert. I'm sorry his grave could not be located, and I have no other information that would help.

I really appreciate your attempt.

RE: John J Buschanan 54405426

According to Covington County marriage license, Tressie was T. B. Knighten when she married Brunt in 1920. I have a copy of that license.

She is listed as T. B.Evans when she married Buchanan in 1889

She married Buchanan after Brunt's death on 29 april 1940. I cannot find a marriage record.

RE: John J Buschanan 54405426
Tressie was married to Knight Before she married Brunt.
Where could I find the book Freestate of Jones.
is that a genealogy of Jones family in SW MS. My maiden name is Jones andI am not familiar with it.

Do you know anything about John and Tressie getting a divorce after 1910? and a remarriage after Brunt died in 1940?

RE: John J Buschanan 54405426
Tressie was married to John in the 1900 and 1910 census. In 1920, he was married to someone else and she was a widow with last name of Knghten.
After her husband, W. J. Brunt died, she was with John again.
Did they get a divorce btw 1910 and 1920? If so, where? Where and when did the remarry?
I am so glad to find a family member who hopefully can shed some light on my questions and road blocks!! Tressie was my late husband's grandmother [fr W.J Brunt]
If you know anything about the name of the Knighten husband, would appreciate the inf. too.

Can you tell me from what newspaper, you took his obit. His wife is mentioned but not named in the obit. do you know her name?
It is interesting that his daughter was listed as Mrs. with Buchanan as the last name also.

I will appreciate any information you can provide on this family.

The obit also list his street but not town. Is it Brookhaven, MS?
