RE: Jones
Patti, I wish I could tell you that our Sarah was the one you are trying to match. But, we have no further info on Sarah Jones. She was born and grew up in Wayne Co, MS and we have nothing to connect her to the Lawrence Co Sarah Jones. She didn't seem to travel to LA and on to TX with her parents so we have totally lost track of her. With the Wayne Co being a burned courthouse, we seem to be up a creek on learning anything more.

Florence Starns Williamson
Patti: The marker has completely different name than what is listed.

The marker has Florence Starns Williamson etched on it. For sure she is the wife of Fred Williamson born 12-16-1895 and died 3-19-1980. Don't know where the odd maiden name of Florence came from.

Please change for the Starns family.

Thank you so much. Vivian Marshall Runnels

Hi Patti,

Freeman Jones was my 5th G-Grandfather. The Jones line comes all the way down to my mother Beverly K. Jones. I am interest in whatever information you might have on Freeman, including pictures if any.

Thanks so very much,

Lee family
My father's siblings are full blooded same parents that are listed.
Seems there is miscommunication as they are marked ** meaning half siblings.
Please make the corrections that are necessary to removed the ** by his siblings names.
Thank you.

John Andrew Meyer
Jackson family
I just looked at the Jackson family in Mississippi. I want you to know that I did not know when I did the research that I was related to the Jackson. An early researcher thought my great great grandmother was Elizabeth Davis, She was wrong and it took me year to find out that she was the daughter of George Jackson and Elizabeth Russell. My 2x great grandmother Elizabeth Jackson was married first to Henry L. Stevens. Steven Jackson the brother of George Jackson was married to Mahala Carpenter. Steven died and Henry L Stevens died and my 2nd great grandfather John Curran Johnston married Mahala Carpenter Jackson. Mahala died during the Civil War and Henry L Stevens died at about the same time. My 2nd great grandfather then married #4 Elizabeth Jackson Steven's. As I said when I was doing research I was Looking at the Carpenter family connections to the "Nathan Smith Settlement" as well as the Minyard, Guess, and other families that are related to me.

RE: Jacksons in Vaiden, Mississippi
I must tell you that I am quite surprised about the Smith Jackson connection. I have long suspected that the Jackson family were at or near the Nathan Smith Settlement but had over looked the family of Elizabeth Jackson being married to Nathan Smith. Elizabeth's younger brother George Jackson is my 3rd great grandfather. Cecelia Gordon and William Jackson are my 4th great grandparents.
When I opened Elizabeth Jackson's profile I see that her husband is Nathan Smith.
As to where I get my information I do a lot of research. I have poured over the Nathan Smith Settlement many times and saw that the Jackson family and the Carpenter family had come from the same places as well as the other families mentioned in the document concerning Cherokee intrusion on Cherokee lands.

Are we related?

RE: Jacksons in Vaiden, Mississippi
I hope thatyou are still doing research about the Jackson family. Tying in the Jackson family to the Nathan Smith settlement would be fantastic.

Before I write to much I want to hear from you.

My ggreat grandmother was Elizabeth Jackson Stevens Johnston Crow, daughter of George Jackson and Elizabeth Russell

Porter Williams. Since I added a duplicate memorial, would you like me to add my photo of his headstone to your original memorial and then delete mine? You could add the cemetery location to the one you created.

RE: Wyley Smith - Memorial# 27958987
Hi Patti,

I'm having problems with my account but I'll try again! Thanks for adding the information to Wyley Smith's page. He was the brother of my great grandfather Fayette. It looks like there were four brothers who fought in the war. At one time I read a document where the surviving brothers were considered AWOL because they went back to work the harvest.

Wyley ENLISTED in the 33rd but due to casualties, it was combined with the 34th and rolled into the 45th. I've found at least two sites with this info but no original docs to verify.

Happy to meet you. D.

Grave Markers for Joseph May Cemetery

The Judith Robinson Chapter, MSDAR, is requesting contributions from descendants of Joseph May, Sr, to help us purchase grave markers for his wife, Sarah Jane Campbell McLain May; Joseph May Jr's wife, Clarissa Daughtry May, and Hiram May - all 3 to be placed in the Joseph May Cemetery in Walthall Co, MS - which DAR members and other interested volunteers are working to clean up and reclaim.

Generous contributions have already been made by these well-known Joseph May descendants: Doug McBroom, Pam Schultz, Gail Chandler, Anna Louise Petersen, and Buddy Smith - and others. Any amount would be appreciated and can be mailed to: Susan Boyd, Regent; Judith Robinson Chapter, MSDAR; 706 Jackson Avenue, McComb, MS 39648. A public ceremony and reception is being planned after the completion of this project - hopefully sometime this Fall.

RE: John Holly Williams
I forgot to mention that Zula Mae Williams Wright (my grandmother) is the sister of John Holly Williams, so he adopted his nieces Willie Mae and Zula Mae and nephew John W. That makes my great uncle my legal grandfather, John Holly Williams. We called him Uncle John. I told you it was confusing!

RE: John Holly Williams
Hi Patti,

I'm so sorry to be so late in replying to your email.

Yes, I am related to this Williams line. My mother Zula Mae Williams was one of three siblings adopted by John Holly Williams, his wife Kathleen and his step grandmother Lilly Greenlee Williams (yes, all three were on the adoption papers!) after the death of their mother. Their father William Wright had deserted the family several months before my mother was born, and my mother's mother Zula Mae Williams Wright died of tuberculosis in a sanitarium 6 weeks after my mother was born. It's kind of confusing, I know.

I would love you chat with you! Feel free to email me at: and I'll give you my phone number. I'm very happy to connect with you!

I posted a picture of Handy's tombstone. Janice, volunteer, and some friends found the stone buried. Note the dates and "Handy", not "Hardy". They are reclaiming the cemetery and will place the military tombstone of Joseph MAY Sr later this spring.....Doug McBroom (MAY Family)

Joseph MAY
Patti, I added a picture of the "new" Joseph MAY tombstone. Janice Brock (one of our MAY cousins in Tylertown MS) ordered the tombstone. It will placed in the cemetery this spring/summer by the local DAR chapter. They are also carefully digging through the leaves and brush to hopefully find some of the tombstones there when a census was taken in 1976. ...Doug McBroom (MAY Family)
