Bio and Links
For the past 40+ years I have been a genealogy addict. Most of my family lines were in and around Jackson County Tennessee, where I was born. I have 3 very grown children and 3 grandchildren +. I am new to Find a Grave, never knew it existed, and am really enjoying all the surprises I am encountering.
My main lines in Jackson Co. are Young, Spurlock, Locke, Jackson, Davidson etc. Any help appreciated and will be glad to assist wherever I can.

the Young family
My Young family came from Scotland (maybe) through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio to Kansas. They are one of the Young families documented in Edward Hudson Young's book "Our Young Family in America. My grandfather, Minor Holliday Young, was interviewed by the author in the 1940s when I was a child. I am named in that book, which gives me the Young side of my family all the way back to 1722. I don't think there was any connection between the Youngs and the Spurlocks until my mother married m father.

Granderson Spurlock
Thank you so much for posting the grave of Granderson Spurlock. I think he is the same person as my 2nd great grand uncle, Grandison Spurlock. I am descended from Granderson/Grandison's brother, James Harvey Spurlock.

My family tree is on Ancestry: Beach-Young genealogy.

Jane Wall Jones
Your posting of Jane Wall Jones in Jerusalem Cemetery is incorrect and should be deleted. She remarried after Josephus Jones death and is buried in Louisiana. The link to this memorial is
The cemetery that you posted her internment in is a duplication of another Jerusalem Cemetery in Amite County, Mississippi and should be deleted.

Did you create the Jerusalem Cemetery Find A Grave site in Amite Co., MS? There are 3 Jerusalem sites on Find A Grave. Which one is the white Jerusalem BAPTIST Church cemetery? We need to change the correct on to read Jerusalem Baptist. Robert

Spurlock line
Thank you for your hard work! We're likely cousins. My maternal grandmother was Hazel Smallwood Stafford. Her mother was Martha Belle Spurlock Smallwood.

RE: William Gill
Thanks for sending this. It helps to see I am probably not related. Thanks for taking the time to send it to me. Maybe we are cousins from back in Scottland or England or somewhere.
Have a good day.

Hello I am a Gill descendant and am trying to see if I am related to your William Gill.

Did he have children?

Eliza Spurlock Ellison Payne
We believe we have traced my husband's family line to Eliza (Elizabeth) Spurlock. His Grandfather was John Allison (Ellison) and we believe he was her son with her first husband. We are not certain of his name but believe it starts with an F. We suspect it may be Franklin but cannot find much information. We believe he died between 1862 when John was born and 1869. John is listed as James Franklin Payne's stepson in the 1880 census.
