Marriage of James Mitchell and Eliza Bust
I am researching the family of James Mitchell, and you obviously have a lot of knowledge in this area. I have been through the Monroe County, MS Courthouse and have found no documentation of the marriage of James Mitchell and Eliza Bush, daughter of John Bush of that county. An article in the Aberdeen Examiner states Eliza Bush married a Mitchell, and the 1850 census shows James Mitchell married a woman named Eliza "within the year". They were both from Monroe County; it seems they would have been married there. Are you aware of any marriage records for that couple? My email address is
I looked for Jack Mitchell and Lelia Mitchell a few months ago at Pine Springs. I couldn't find them; however, there are base pads close to other Mitchell relations where the markers have been lost.

Hi Lola,
Dexter O'Day was my grandfather. I was hoping to find some more information about my family history, and I stumbled upon this website. I wanted to express my gratitude to you. To have pictures of my relatives on my grandfathers side, is a void filler. I admired my grandfather. Before he passed, he had a partner named Annie. If there is anyone out there that knew, or knows how to contact Annie, I would be extremely grateful. I think she may be able to help me gain more closure. Thank you again.

Family Photo's have posted some wonderful Family Photo's, such as, William Baxter Myers Memorial #84776361 & his wife Delilah Elizabeth Fry Myers Memorial #84776501.....William in my 3rd cousin 2x removed, his great great grandfather, James F Purvis, Sr (1765 - 1836)is also my 4th great grandfather. Would it be OK if I copied some of the pictures for my Private Family Tree in Ancestry...lookyloo

If this site won't let you do what you want to do with our Unknown transfer it back to me and I will see what I can do. I think the picture should stay.

I deleted the wrong unknown. Why don't I just transfer my Unknown to you?

I just deleted my "Unknown". If you want to tell the story of the marker it probably should be told. It is near where the front gate used to be in the old Phillips part of the old cemetery.

Mother of Ollie Mae Phillips Wilson and Grandmother of my Grandma Ida May Wilson Boyd. I have seen the photo before however did not copy it as I felt it is better ask the owner of the photo.

I am not claiming this find, but I have found two Singleton project markers near Maud New Brinkley. I believe there is a connection with the families.

Nettie Madison
Hi Lola,

I have a location for Nettie's grave. Unfortunately she has no marker. I'll still plan on photographing the grave, unless I hear otherwise from you. I'll probably be making a trip later this week.

William Alexander Wood
Hi, Lola,

I'm working on my Fry/Childres/Childress lines and discovered that William Alexander Wood was the son of Robert Wood and his first wife, Mary Louisa Baker. Since Mary died so young, he likely thought Chloe was his mother. So you may want to clarify that on his memorial page since the death certificate is wrong.

Roy Fry photo request
Hi, the volunteers would be happy to fill your photo request however we will need a burial location to do so. Can you please contact Laurel Land and get a burial location for your request.

The number is 214 371 1336 or to email them, the link is:

They are good about responding to the email request! There are over 45 photo requests currently and the volunteers cannot ask for that many locations to fill requests. With a location, your request will get filled pretty quickly. Thanks for your help

As soon as I figure out how to transfer I will. Lol

RE: Susan Bowlin
There is no marker. I have her death certificate and know she is there. We believe her to be near William Bowlin and his wife Sarah Watson Bowlin as there are spaces and the DAR cited a burial when they platted it in the 1950's.
I can not establish the connection of Susan to William and Sarah. Susan died in Ft.Worth and they brought her all the way to Johnson Station for burial. I find it hard to believe they did this without reason. There were plenty of free places to be buried in Ft. Worth if that were an issue.
Are you connected to her?
Sorry I am new at this Find A Grave site and overlooked your response. Thank you so much.
