tranfer of grave site to family
Hello Angela
Would you please transfer the management of two grave sites at Bethlehem Methodist Cemetery to me.
Thomas Marion Harp #37574014 and his infant daugher, Leann Tennessee Harp #37574177

After Thomas and Leann died, Prudence and six of her children moved to Morehouse Parish in Louisiana. My line is from their son, James Nathan Harp #67998788.

Prudence Masoner Harp #67999111 is buried at the Bonne Idee Cemetery in Morehouse Parish along with several of her children. Please visit. I built most of the sites myself.

RE: Headstone Photo Alfred Bryant
Hey Angela. I'd be glad for you to use the photo or others. Thank you for asking. Is your blog open? It would be cool to read the post about Alfred. My grt grt grt grandmother, Sarah "Sally" Bryant was born in Spartanburg SC to William Bryant and Delilah Dillard, married William Lackey in Alabama then moved to Pontotoc, MS. I'm not sure how her and Alfred were related, but figure they were likely pretty close relatives. - derek

Hi Cuz - I noticed that your grandmother Benice's memorial is not being maintained by anyone. I have had good response by requesting a transfer from If you give them your member number and the memorial number they should transfer it to you and you can then do the links. If not, you could ask them to add links for you. Rick

Merry Christmas
My most memorable Christmas started in October, I was pregnant and had became ill with kidney failure. I spent October and November in the hospital, fighting to give the baby a chance. I was told the baby weighed about one pound. There was no hope the child could survive outside of my body. We wanted this baby so badly. We had been hoping, and waiting to have a little one to call our own.

I was getting weaker but the baby was still growing. Giving this little one time to grow strong was all that mattered.

On November 27 my doctor entered my hospital room and told me both the baby and I were in danger, the time had come. I delivered by C section a 2 pound 2 oz baby boy. He went to a different hospitals Neo Natal intensive care unit and because of my recovery I didn't see him for three days.

I called the hospital to check how he was doing, it never seamed that he was alright. He was struggling and his life seemed like a distant reality.

I was discharged Dec 1, and I finally got to see my boy. I remember how small he was, about the length of my hand, I couldn't touch him because he had tubes and needles sticking all over his body. I had decided I could hold his little foot, that maybe somehow he would know I was there.

December 12, the doctor told us that Brice had cysts on one of his lungs and his lung had to be removed. It happened so quickly, there was little time to comprehend what was going on. That day the real fight began to keep him alive.

We stood off to the side and watched and waited for a change. Words like unstable, not responding, life threatening took on a whole new meaning. Numbers became our lifeline to our son, his vital signs were all important. Sometimes it felt like I was on a crash medical course. I knew that as long as those numbers stayed stable he was all right; to stray would mean possible death.

The numbers dipped and then elevated, day after day we became more dedicated to being at the hospital. It was as if our life stopped, except in that sterile environment. Although I knew it was Christmas time I never felt Christmasy. No Christmas presents were bought. No tree in our home. It was just winter stretching out before us in the darkness of the unknown.

On Christmas Eve I was standing next to his incubator holding his little tiny feet in my hand. There was some Christmas carol playing and it seamed so peaceful, almost too peaceful.

It was minutes to midnight and the monitor alarms went off. Brice had stopped breathing, he was turning blue and I watched in horror, feeling so helpless. Here was this sweet little boy who had been fighting for his life for almost a month now. He was going to sleep and he was not going to wake up.

I stepped away quickly so the doctors and nurses could work on him, I remember several people moving around and the urgency that loomed in the air. I moved to the other side of the room and looked out the window. My hope was gone and it seemed right that such little boy who had fought so hard was now being taken by angels away from me to God.

As I looked out the window there, in the snow, was a nativity scene. Lit up with lights and a straw bed where the baby Jesus laid.

I must have looked out that window many times before that moment; but I never saw it. I looked beyond and past it, finally as I stood there, I saw it.

I thought about Mary and her son. How far she had come to deliver a Savior on a cold night in Bethlehem. Mary must have been frightened, as I was now. She felt the uncertainty of what would lay ahead for her little boy. And at that moment my little boy was slipping away from me. Several minutes seem to pass and there was no relief in sight. I remember saying "God please take him quickly, don't let him suffer."

The next thing I felt was a soft hand on my shoulder. I turned to see my husband. I was prepared for the worst. He grabbed me and whispered "They got him going again."

I knew for the first time in months that our son was going to live and I also knew it was Christmas morning.

May your Christmas memories lead you into the new year with hope, may your life have unspeakable joy that will always chase away your fears and sadness.

Happy Thanksgiving!

America has had many fine moments. Our ability to love, to create and defend peace and safety to the world is our strength for brighter days.

It has always been at a great sacrifice to our nation but we stand on principal. We are Americans, our ancestors came on ships, and unthinkable hardships followed. We founded a county that stands on faith, hope and love.

As we enter the holidays and this Thanksgiving I remember that we do have golden wings, sailing on freedoms wind across the sky.

Thank you for friendship, hope and love, as we stand together as one people, we are thankful for our family's and futures yet to come.

We have not seen our finest moment, WE are our finest moment.


for you

RE: Rakestraw/Bryant Pics
Angela - I'm glad that your mom liked the pictures, etc. Tell her that I am on facebook - she can find me easiest by using one of the filters - location: Portland, OR or school: Ramsay High School, Birmingham or University of Montevallo. Facebook picture is the same as on findagrave.

You are most welcomed to use pics and any other information I have posted on findagrave. Thanks for asking. I look forward to seeing what you put on your blog!

By the way, I see that you work at conserving old cemeteries. Are you familiar with Gaston Cemetery near Brice's Crossroads? Mary Ann Elizabeth Phillips Bryant's father, Thomas Gordon Phillips, who would be your GGG Grandfather, is buried there, but the only photos of the cemetery on findagrave just show woods and underbrush. I'm not even sure if he has a marker there.

RE: Pauline Williams
I don't think you and I can start counting up what we owe each other. I am just so glad I found that stone. We about laughed out heads off when after all the investigating, you thought the point was who owned the plot and the point was the pictures. LOL the other stuff we just came up as a consequence of finding the picture. I was to send you some pictures of around her but with you modem, I don't know what to do.

Lula Bryant Rakestraw
Well, hello cousin. I say that because you show that you are descended from Lula Bryant Rakestraw, who was a sister to my grandfather William Robert Bryant. Please consider linking her memorial to her parents, Alfred and Mary Elizabeth Bryant:
Alfred #15464504
Mary Elizabeth #15464531
You will find the Rakestraws in the family picture on Mary Elizabeth Bryant's memorial page. They are standing up on the porch at the far right of the picture. Below them, seated in chairs, are my grandparents William Robert and Keziah Rebecca Suzanna Bryant (my father had not yet been born when this picture was taken).
You might also want to link Berry and Lula together. Some ancestry family trees show Lula's middle name as Lorane - but I don't know about that for sure.
You can also add the Bryants to your Family Virtual Cemetery - and Alfred can be added to your CSA Veterans Virtual Cemetery!!

Angela, The cemetery with this name in Marshall county, I have on a list of Marshall County cemeteries as Emory Methodist Cemetery.

When you were doing photos there did you see a sign of any kind? I got this from a book of interments in Marshall County cemeteries done in 1981.

What do you think?

I keep forgetting to put the names in here

53145401 Hilda
53143515 Pamela Joyce Day
53145057 Johnnie N

These are the ones in Marshall County besides the other four.

In the 1920's some of the moved to Arkansas. My GreatGrandMother Arie married Ben P. and moved there. She came down with what we believe was either the yellow Fever or that horrible Flu and died before she could return home. I can't find her grave.

If you ever see a walking talking Day around there grab them until I can get there. LOL I have lost touch with everyone there except my mother's immediate family.
