Roberts Cemetery near Utica
I see that you have posted a cemetery picture for Roberts Cemetery near Utica and wondering if you can tell me what road it is on. Thanks you for your help.

RE: Harmony Cemetery Neshoba County MS
No I did not go but I am sure I will when it cools off. I was not actually looking for any of my relatives but I had a photo request from someone else that has a relative in that cemetery. I try to complete as many request as I can when I can.

RE: Harmony Cemetery Neshoba County MS
Thanks John for your reply. I did venture out on my journey to find this cemetery a few months back while it was still cool out. I did find the cemetery! Boy, is it ever off the beaten path. Actually only a few miles from where I live but definitely deep in the forest. I did not find the grave I was looking for sadly. I did see where there were a lot of unmarked graves and broken and/or destroyed headstones in the old cemetery so its very possible the person I was looking for is a "resident" there and is in one of the unmarked spots. Sadly, I left, my mission unaccomplished but thoroughly enjoyed my time there as it is very old and with what I feel a lot of history. Thanks!

Harmony Cemetery Neshoba County MS
Hi John. I see where you took pictures of the Harmony Cemetery in the House community of Neshoba county. My question is, Did you take pictures of all headstones in cemetery? I have a request for a Robert Neese in that cemetery and was wondering if it is accessible since you say its on forest land. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Edward Grant Fortner
Edward Grant Fortner and Eva Gardner Fotner were the parents of James, Evelyn and Thelma.

I have all the info on Evelyn and her descendents. I have your email address I believe, and I can send it to you privately.

Edward Grant Fortner
Is there by any chance a connection between the Edward Grant Fortner that was married to Eva Fortner ( )

and the husband/wife duo of William Martin Fortner and Martha Riser? Was this same Edward Grant their youngest son (born around 1888)?


Allen (husband of Edward/Eva's great-great granddaughter)

Re: The Boozer family
John, I think you are right. Deloris Sanders had it as Vinzant also.

There is another son that should be added:

Please link James W. Boozer # 60546620 to his father D. (Drayton) A.(Augusta) Boozer # 60546616 and his mother, Elizabeth Vinzant Boozer # 60546617.

James was known as "Bud" Boozer back in the days when he was driving a school bus to Pulaski.
