Sons of the American Revolution. It is a male lineage society where you have to prove the lineage back to the Patriot. I have proven all three of those.

RE: James Lafayette Williams
Yes, the family was from Winston County. I've asked my mom about J. L.'s family but she said no one would ever talk about his dad cause he deserted his family. The ones who would know are all gone and they never would talk about him. I do know that J L and his family went on a wagon train to Oklahoma during the land rush when he was 5 years old. Don't know how long they stayed there. J L is supposed to have a brother named Joe who my mom thinks lives in Tennessee. I wouldn't even try because how many Joe Williams do you think there are in Tennessee? LOL

All I know anything abt them is that they had one son Archie 17 Jun 1902 - 11 Jun 1997 Find A Grave #104564698. His wife was Mary Elsie ? Her listing is attached to his listing. Archie and Elsie has four children. Louis b.1922,Doris b1925, Hoyet b. 1926, and Wm. Elbert b. 23 May 1927 -2 Dec 2008 Find A Grave #92340342. Wm. Elbert was my son-in-laws paternal grandfather.

I did not know abt the Jas. Albert, son of Jas. Arthur and Sallie until I found their Find A Grave listing.

I only find one Census record with one child listed and that was with Jas. Albert and Sallie with Archie as a 7 yr old. Sorry I don't have more.

Thank you very much. I am familiar with Water Mill and Joe Lee Sanford Roads. My son lives on JLS Rd. Maybe I can get him or George Prater to go with me to this gravesite.

Jas. Arthur McAlpin & wife Sallie #s 45586629& 45586631
I am wondering if you are related to them. I am doing research on the McAlpin family for my son-in-law. I understand James Arthur and Sallie had another son, Archie U. 1902 - 1997 Jefferson Memorial Gardens, Bham, Al. Do you know anything about James Arthur and Sallie's children. Thanks for any info you may have.

Mary Louise Womack Robertson
This is Mary Louise Taylor Robertson. She was not a Womack nor was her husband Joseph. On the Calhoun City Cemetery her information has been requested to change from Womack to Taylor. This can be seen on the grave page by the requests that have been made to have this changed that she is not a Womack.

RE: Boyles Cemetery - Webster County, Miss.
The best I can tell the city cemetery is split between Oktibbeha and Webster Counties. Part of the Maben city limits are in Webster. But I think you are right about Boyles, it is in Webster.

RE: Location of Lanier Cemetery
The cemetery is located in Lowndes County, MS about a quarter mile north of the intersection of Highway 50 and Youngblood Road. This is a few miles east of the city of Columbus. It is totally overgrown with large trees, bushes, and vines. In June of 2012, my husband (who died in 2013) had headstones erected at the graves of his father, mother, and brother. At that time, they had access to the cemetery from the south side across a muddy field of grass and weeds. The cemetery is on property owned by the Youngblood family who live at 488 Youngblood road. Permission was obtained from them to erect the headstones. This was done by Columbus Marble Works. I can give you more details if you e-mail me directly at:
Thank you for your intrest.

RE: McBee Cemetery
Have you been to the Lowndes County Library, 314 North 7th Street, Columbus, MS? They have/had a book titled LOWNDES COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI CEMETERY RECORDS By Rolfe B. Chase, Revised Copy 1979. That is how my cousin found the McBee Cemetery. The only marker found was that of Aaron Evans. I have a picture of his marker and it looks like it is laying on the ground. That was back in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Gee, I hope you can connect with someone who knows about it. Don't give up!

RE: McBee Cemetery
I don't have anyone buried at McBee that I know of. I just have a hope that I can one day find my Kleber Kilcrease and Amanda Carter Kilcrease's graves. Kleber was born in TN in 1818, the child of Davis Kilcrease and Mahala Mandley( mahala's second husband was Thomas Townsend.) kleber at age 17 left Lowndes Co and went to TX in1835 and fought in the Texas Revolution! He received bounty land in TX but came back to Lowndes and married Amanda. They settled on land (the Alexander Carter tract) just east of the Luxapulila. kleber was a lawyer and he died before 1860. To date, I have not been able to locate Kleber and Amanda's graves or Alexander and Polly Carter's. I have found evidence that Alexander owned land in section 13. T18 and R18. That land doesn't seem to far from the McBee Cemetery location that you describe.

RE: RE:McBee Cemetery
Do you know where this "Lanier Cemetery" is? Have you ever been to it? I am looking at this cemetery via Columbus satellite. It is hard to tell from the satellite that there is a cemetery there. However, this fits the descriptions I have seen online for Lanier Cemetery. Also, this is how I remember it from the late 1970's when I visited it. I notice that on findagrave Lanier Cemetery website there are graves posted that are also on the McBee Cemetery website. How can this be? Have you compared these cemetery listings? ......... I did visit the cemetery where Macajah is buried many years ago. That is wonderful news that ya'll have placed a stone! I don't think I have any documents that list Henry F. Walters middle name as Freeman.

RE: RE:McBee Cemetery
I think I have located the Lanier Cemetery or McBee Cemetery. By sattlelite, I am looking north of 50 highway and west of Youngblood road. North and behind Marvin's building supply and eddies setrvice center is a large field. In the middle of the field are a few tress and a lot of brush. North of this brushy stuff is a remnant of a road or abandoned road. It looks like the road could have been entered from Youngblood road and traveled to the west. At the very end of this old road are two structures that look like mobile homes from the satellite view, and they are behind the Hyundai dealership. Please tell me I am right and this is the cemetery!

RE: RE:McBee Cemetery
I'm wondering if the cemetery I'm seeking is on Youngblood Road. The road we traveled to the cemetery was a pretty nice maintained road. We saw the cemetery to our right. I would guess the field was allowed to grow up in trees and that the cemetery is there but back always from the road. A field can grow up in trees and brush pretty fast. It has been at least 35 years since I was there. I googled endangered cemeteries in Lowndes County, MS. The Lanier is on the list. I think the website is called Saving Graves. The article says the cemetery is about a quarter of a mile north of E Hwy 50 and Youngblood Rd. It says it is on a private road. I have tried looking for it on the sattlelite map, but I can't figure the mileage. The cemetery must have been closer to the road than I remembered. The names listed are Evans, Shirley and Lanier. Shirley descendents were the people who directed us to this cemetery long ago. We are kin to them thru the Alexander Carter line. One article I read about this cemetery says this cemetery was on the plantation grounds. It must have been the McBee Plantation since the creek is named for him.

RE: Hawkins / McBride
Dora was my wonderful grandmother. My niece Amber and I have been working on the Hodges side. Amber discovered our Ann M. Hodges Hawkins living in Loundes Co. ms. In the 1850 census with her mother, Mariah C. Hodges. Ann married Joseph Malone Hawkins son of William Hawkins, and moved to Webster County in 1852. Her mother, Mariah C. Hodges, was still living in lowndes co in 1860, according to the 1860 Census. Mariah was living with the William Cox family in the ante bellm mansion called Bryn Bella located out from Columbus on the Stinson Road. Amber and I got to tour the house during the pilgrimage.!!! Mariah C. hodges was married to John Hodges. They bought land together in Green Co. Al. In 1835. We do not know when or where John Hodges died.

RE: Shaffer / McBride
Levy and William Walter McBride were my great grandparents. My father was Vernon McBride. His father Joe and Dora Hawkins McBride moved from Webster Co. To the Ms. delta in The early 1920's. My mother's parents moved to the Delta also. My mother was born at Rye, MS, but her parents moved back to the Columbus area in the early 1940's. My lines in Monroe County and Lowndes County are Pools, Rye, Egger, Freeman, Jaudons, Kilcrease and Carter. William Moore, the first mayor of Columbus, was married to my ggg grandmother Amanda Carter Kilcrease's sister Charity. My ancestor Kleber Kilcrease was a stepson of Thomas Townsend. I have been searching for Carter and Kilcrease graves for over 35 years!
