Since she wasn't related I did not copy Mary's death certificate. However, I've pulled my notes and can tell you what I have written down:

Name: Mary Helen Rowell
DOB: 08-23-1942 in Lamar Co., MS
Father: Hillman Rowell
Father's Place of Birth: MS
Mother: C[hestine] Runnels
Mother's Place of Birth: MS
Informant: Hillman Rowell
Funeral Home: Avery Funeral Home, Purvis, MS
DOD: 09-08-1042 in Purvis, Lamar Co., MS
Cause of death: Bronchitis due to Influenza

The mother's name is in brackets because it was hard to read. Hope this helps.

While I was not able to provide you with a headstone picture as requested, I was able to locate a death certificate. I hope this helps in your search.

Memorial Park Cemetery where the burial is supposed to be is an extremely large cemetery (41,000+ interments). Staff at the cemetery will only provide grave locations to family members. Please contact the office to obtain plot information and add it to the memorial page and/or your photo request, so the volunteer photographer can find the grave marker for you. The office can be reached at 901-767-8930 or 888-943-7275. Ask for Paul Campbell. Once you obtain this information, please resubmit your photo request.

James H. Sparks
Your source of information of the children of Wm Sparks has incorrect information on James Sparks marriage to Massy C. Wadlington. Her first marriage was to James and after his death in 1838 she married Robert F Millard in Oct 1843 in Nacogdoches.

Use the family links to verify the above.

Fannie & Frank Brunson, Bistineau Cemetery

You are so welcome!

I have also, sent you an obituary for Mr. Frank Brunson today.

I found a new site where I was able to get some old obituaries. I am working on others in Bistineau Cemetery. I hope to get back to taking photos of tombstones and be able to finish up this cemetery.

Thank You!
Doug, I can't thank you enough for posting the photo's of my Great-Grandparent's graves. Virginia Bryant McBroom and Oaks McBroom.
I appreciate your work so much.
I was on the phone with my Great Aunt Dimple McBroom (Oaks and Jennie's daughter). She's now 78 years old and living between Nashville and Baxter. She asked me to Thank You as well.
I suppose we're somehow related! If I can ever be of help with family information I'll do all I can.
My Grandparents are Cecil Franklin McBroom (son of Oaks and Jennie) and Hallie Mae Harris McBroom. Daughter of Margie Francis Edmonds and Tandy Harris. Thanks!!
- Jason

Hi Doug
Thanks for the family links to her memorial. I have made the additions. I am not related so if you would like transfer for her or any others I would be glad to transfer. Thanks Kelly

Hi, I am a relative of David Curry. Buried at Antioch Baptist Church in Washington County Georgia. Today I went to this cemetery. It was so neat. I understand that David Curry and William May donated the land for this cemetery. William May has a not from you that there is not stone for him. Can you tell me how you are positive he is buried there. I notice his wife has a marker. The reason Im asking is that I have reason to believe that David's father William Curry is also buried in the cemetery but I could not find a stone. If there are unmarked graves in this cemetery would anyone have records of the burials? Thanks so much for the beautiful photos of this cemetery. I would have never found it without your help.

a change I found staff at the memorial garden that gave me the grave location. Best wishes, Dale

RE: Tombstone picture
You're welcome. I did want to say if you're able to get in touch with the family members of Mr. Harrell that they should contact the funeral home or cemetery. The gravesite is in dire need of maintenance due to the settling of the soil.

Hi Doug,

Got a question for you and I will totally understand if you don't want to do it.

I'm not sure if you remember the problem I was having at the Providence Cemetery in Ringgold, Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

Ms Alverne entered the names of people buried in this cemetery back in 2008 from a list. I tried in vain last year to get edits done through her to no avail. She told me she was too old to keep up with edits. Find a grave tried working with her, but she is old and confused and would say one thing one time and something else the next. She would was not willing or able to do a large number of edits or willing to have find a grave do them for her. So I gave up. Bless her. Others have also tired and gave up.

Since then, I have returned to this very large cemetery and taken photos of the entire cemetery. Since I could not get anywhere with Ms Alverne, I am trying to go around her with duplicates, I don't no what else to do. They can be merged at a later date.

I am attempting to connect as many families as possible. I did this to a couple of other cemeteries and was able to connect almost all. These are my family members and I have info on most of them.

Anyway to my question is it okay to move your photos to a new memorial? I don't want your work to be overlooked.

Thanks for all that you do. Have a blessed day.

Etheldred May Family
Do you by chance have anything to document Jehu May born in 1817 and died 1899 as Etheldred May's son? We did not see him on the estate list. We are working DAR papers and need to connect Jehu May to Etheldred May Born 1789 died 1852 Pike Co. Mississippi.
Please e-mail me at
