Would you go in and double check on the edit you sent me. It looks like you have sent me Effie's number to add as her father instead of her father's #-- Do you know what Effie's father, William's # is?

That memorial page aggravates me to no end. I have tried on several occasions to straighten it out. Since I am not in Sarah Cynthia's direct line, her brother William is my line, you might have a better claim in contacting the edit department. I'd say give it a shot.

Thomas D. Ruffin
Hello Pat. My actual connection is through his wife, Darthula Paralee Byrn.

The following are excerpts from the Lauderdale County Enterprise:

Lauderdale County Enterprise - Issue 25 Jan 1913
Thomas D. Ruffin, born Dec. 18, 1836, died at the Old Soldiers' Home, Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 1, 1913...Baptist since early manhood. Married in 1858 [1861] to Miss Paralee Byrn to which union were born eleven children, five of whom survive: R. J. and C. D. Ruffin of Memphis, TN., Mrs. R. C. Chaney of Tomberlan, Ark., and T. V. Ruffin and Mrs. J. M. Meacham of Ripley. Two sisters, Mrs. Agnes Bass and Mrs. Rowena Turner of DeWitt, Ark., also survive. Deceased was not subject to military duty, but early in the war volunteered and fought for his country in the cause that lost. In April 1912, while making his home with the oldest son, R. J. Ruffin in Memphis, he suffered a stroke of paralysis and was later moved to The Old Soldiers' Home in Nashville where he remained until his death which had as direct cause nauralgia of the heart. His remains were laid at rest in The Home cemetery at Nashville
[Lauderdale County Marriage Record shows the marriage was June 30, 1861. -BBD]

Administrator's notice - Thos. D. Ruffin, deceased; C. D. Ruffin, adm'r; T. V. Ruffin is a resident of Arkansas.

I believe the same family member gave information to the newspaper as well as for the tombstone which is slightly incorrect.

I also relate through the Meacham family.

Some of the family moved to Blytheville, Mississippi County, AR. I believe Thomas D. Ruffin was most likely born in Fayette County, TN.

RE: Hattie Graham Nixon #132787996
Ok. I have done more research and all census records and death indexes only show Hattie. I can not find in any records the name Harriet. The family did not have Harriet on the marker only Hattie. I will add a note to memorial about the name Harriet.

RE: Death Date for Richard Morton (b. 1794)
I was not aware of the discrepancies in his year of death. I will investigate and see if I can come up with anything. I definitely know that there are mistakes in the "Descendants of Jonas & Joseph" book. I have found them through research. I've corrected them on my personal pages of the book. I'll let you know if I find anything concrete. Nice to hear from you. Lynn

Hi Pat,

Go ahead and move your memorial into the cemetery and I'll ask for the photo on the other memorial to be moved to yours. Once that's done we can delete the other memorial.

Mildred Terrell Littlefield
Hello, I noticed you added the photo of Mildred Littlefield on her memorial page. I am researching the Littlefield family as there is much rumor and speculation in my family that an ancestor of mine named George Wiley (or Washington) White may be her grandchild, however I am unable to figure out which of her many children is a parent.

Our family record names Fleming and Mildred Littlefield moving to Texas from Georgia. Our ancestor's mother's name has been listed as either Cora or Mildred Littlefield and it was believed she married a Charles E. White.

The story continues that Charles E. White was killed by Mexicans and his wife's step brothers (named John and Charles White) killed them and went on the run. Cora/Mildred would then routinely receive money from those step-brothers until her early death.

Do you or anyone who might read this have idea of where this story came from? Fleming and Mildred Littlefield fit, but Cora is not in the family and the only daughter for Mildred was a Martha Mildred, who married Theo Harrell.

It's a family mystery I'm anxious to solve.

Hi Pat...I searched by obituaries and found one for Savilla M Sloan which I have posted to her memorial. However, I do not have one for her husband. I will be going to the library in the next couple of weeks and will search their records to try to find on obituary for him.

RE: Garrott families from near Senatobia
James and Sophia Staples Garrott were my gr gr gr grandparents. [I was unaware of this until I started tracing my ancestors about 8 years ago.] So, it appears that we are cousins. Had no clue any of this Garrett line lived in Panola Co. Most of James' siblings moved west, or NW from KY if memory serves me correctly. James had sons fighting for the Confederacy while he had nephews fighting for the Union.

All of my research and notes and references are on RootsWeb. I think the file No. is wbcm. I gave it the title of Footprints through Tate Co, MS.
You are probably aware of the Garrett book mentioned in the notes that briefly reference the Garrotts of Senatobia and notes that they changed their name spelling after moving south.

Look in the RootsWeb file and you will find that James had a son, Thomas B, who marreid Lydia Garrett. Lydia's parents were James and Rebecca Harriet Garrett. Both James Garrett and James Garrott lived near each other in eastern Tate Co, and both were born in Va, and both had sons named Thomas B. I feel there is some connection there between this Garrett family and my Garrott family, but I was never able to make any connection

I visited the abandoned Wright-Garrott Cemetery east of Senatobia, a few years ago. There are several tombstones, and evidence of many graves without tombstones. The cemetery is fenced and well hidden in a large clump of trees. Evidently, the Garrott family did not purchase many permanent tombstones although they were quite large land owners by the time of the Civil War.

I would appreciate any information that you might have to share. Do I have your Garrett ancestoral line in my tree? If so, I would appreciate knowing which son of Robert and Verlinda he is.
Thanks, Gene

RE: Riverside - Lytle
Hi, I will be happy to put the area they are in. I really don't know why some people don't have headstones, I know some of my family doesn't either, I figured, either they all died within too short of a time to get some, or more likely they didn't have the money to buy one, which is sad. There are a few members of my family, I was going to price just simple headstones and see if I could afford them. I haven't gotten that far yet. I will enter what I took, at least you know they are there.
I know I have the exact place, because the girl in the office, gave me a map and showed me where other headstones were, and they were right in between these headstones. I wish I could have helped more. If I don't get to it tonight, I will for sure tomorrow. Thank you for responding.

Hi, I went to that lot, and they have no headstones, I even checked with the office, and they gave me where they should be, but they again have no headstones, I did take a picture of the grass area they are in, if you want that picture put on their memorials, please let me know.

RE: Addition of Middle Name to Joseph Rucker #32456139
Yes, you are correct. I confused his grandson through his son Elbert Marion Rucker (he was Joseph Whitner Rucker) with Joseph Sr in my research. Thanks for being a "hawk-eye!"
