RE: Charles Jenkins
Thanks. I've run across similar problems when there are 2 different names for the same cemetery (and 2 addresses). Although mine were confirmed to be the same cemetery after all, the address for one was listed at intersecting roads on the west side, and the other address was intersecting roads on the east side. Totally confusing.

Good Luck,

Emmett H Hunter
This is my paternal gr-uncle. He and my grandmother, Myrtle Lee Hunter (Hill) were born to Luther B Hunter and Rosa Rucker Hunter who were married 10/27/1894. They also had another child named Lottie who died at a young age. Rosa died when my grandmother was a young child and I have not been able to find out anything about her other than her marriage to my gr-grandfather, Luther B Hunter. Ollie Rhodes Hunter married him after her death and had the remainder of the children listed on the memorial.

Donaldsons and Poundses
Hi Angela. I have been clicking around your virtual Family Cem. and your Headboards of Stone blogspot. If you are kin to Martha Ann Pounds Donaldson, we are far (very far!) flung cousins. The separation took place about 1800 when a son of Samuel Pounds of Anson Co. NC headed south to TN and then Miss., while a son of Samuel's cousin William Pounds of Chatham Co. NC headed north and west into the Ohio Country. I've worked on this northern branch of our line for twenty years, and just recently I've gone back to NC and this time headed south and west toward Mississippi.

You can get an idea of my work from visiting
No photos there, I'm afraid. I'm saving them for the next book, though I'd be happy to share on a personal basis.

I'm a big Faulkner fan, so right now I'm particularly interested in Lafayette Co., where Martha Ann Donaldson and her husband died. I haven't investigated the Donaldsons in Lafayette yet, but I will. For today, I wonder if you know of any other connects (however tenuous) between the Pounds family and Lafayette and surrounding counties. The biggest passel of Mississippi Poundses seems to be over in Prentiss Co....

Best regards, Wayne Pounds, Tokyo

Dear Angela,
"From the president of the United States and grateful Nation." I remember the words so clearly as they handed my Mother the flag. I had never heard those words before that. As I stood there on that cold November Day, thoughts came swirling in my head. I flashed back to my fathers entire demeanor. How he organized his clothing drawers were. How he lived with honor, how military he was. How he had wanted to be in the National Cemetery and I was so against it.

It was like it was all coming together in my head, I was seeing experiences known only to those understanding military tradition.

He was part of this white sea of headstones belonging to the men and women who valiantly defended our nation. His military back bone had always been there.

He served as a Chaplin ministering to Vets at the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital for years. He was on the honor guard for awhile. He gave blood routinely as he was AB negative, the rarest blood type in the world. Many nights he would get a 2 am call and out the door he would go to give blood because someone was in need. It took me years to understand what a military man is. He lived our nation and preserving it's goodness my entire life.

Memorial Day means so many different things to our society. The start of summer, picnics, it is the official end of winter where I live.

To veterans it is a time of reflection, of their courage, sacrifices, pride and loss. My son has lost 2 friends to the Iraq war, and another that came back severely injured and is struggling with his injuries and each day is a gift as those days are slipping away from him.

Memorial Day we bring into memory those that have fought for our freedom. I would like to thank you, for your Father, Son, daughter, husband, ancestor, or maybe even you, for the scarifies your families have endured to keep America out of harms way.

That as we begin Memorial Day 2012 our families remain strong and we are enduring together what our nation is all about....

"First in WAR ... First in PEACE ... and First in the HEARTS of his countrymen."
George Washington.

Happy Easter
At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o'clock. Then, at that time Jesus called out with a loud voice, "My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?"

Today is Good Friday, one of the saddest yet the most joyful days of the year. For many years on Good Friday the weather has changed to dark sky's and the winds rolled in. It lasts about an hour. I have always thought that God was reminding me of that moment when Jesus left this earth. The suffering was over, the debt was paid for us. The Lamb of God had fulfilled his destiny and salvation was ours to claim through repentance of our sins.

Just now, in Florida, it rained and the sky was ominous and threatening. Lightning danced across the sky with loud claps of thunder. It rolled in from the west and as it came upon the house it was beautiful, exciting, and if orchestrated by Steven Spielberg could not have been more beautifully displayed.

The rain came after and then the glorious rainbow with the sun gleaming colors of purple, green, yellow and blue. God's rainbow with the meaning of "he loves us, he keeps his word and he will be there in the evening of our lives."

As I watched the weather roll by and the sun's return. I could feel it's warmth, I could feel God's promises to us as humanity. In my own words, once a year we have a holy TEXT sent to us. It says "I lived, I died and I did it because I love you" You have my number, don't forget to call.

On this Good Friday I am sending you my faith, my hope and wishing you peace and love in your lives forever. This has been my message to you for 8 years. We can rejoice in a new beginning because that is what he bestows on us each and every Good Friday.

Each and every Easter Morning we start again. With the Faith that he is near, The peace he sends in knowing our future is in his good keeping, the hope that our loved ones can share in this amazing gift, and the love that can transpire between families no matter how much strife and differences we have, we are all one. It is all so easy when we come together to make it happen.

Easter Blessings,


Psalm 35:9
Then my soul shall rejoice in the LORD;
and delight in his salvation.
