RE: Retha Brown Bourrage
Yes. I am related to her (Retha Brown). She was my grandmother. I never met her or Alonzie Bourrage (my grandfather). To make a long story short... I never had any grandparents on neither side of my parents growing up. I'm at the point in my life were I want to know my roots so I went to and started my family tree. I am the son of Retha Bourrage Powe and Arthur James Powe. I've heard the story growing up that Retha's (my mother)mother fell in the kitchen at an early age around 17 and died. She was adopted and know one (all of her surviving sisters and brothers as of today) seems to know who her biological parents were. Anyway I'm wondering... how do you know Ellijah Hollins is Retha Brown's biological father. According to I have Ivan Brown and Martha Brown as her parents. Upon further research, I found out that they adopted Retha Brown at the age of 3 (which confirmed the story that I've heard growing up).

Bessie Richmond Mt Sinai
I looked through all the stone photos I took at Mt Sinai, I posted all the Richmonds that I had, I did not see a Bessie Miller or Bessie
Richmond, The only Bessie I saw a stone for was Bessie Alexander. The Church may have a record. I am in the process of adding all the stones from Mt Sinai, I took them row by row. It is possible that her stone is missing, there was a row that was missing about 10 stones, you could see where their bases were. There were also a few that had been painted over with thick white paint and were not readable as were a few that were very weathered and or had blank cinder block markers. Sorry I didnt find her but I added some other Richmonds who might be related. Let me know if I can ever be of help to you in Marshall Co, I love the African Am. Cemeteries and I know where quite a few of them are and would be happy to help look for anyone your searching for in Marshall County :)
Have a great day! Angela

I am so excited about finding this information. I'm sending you a link to a message I found on another forum about a grave founded in New Hope. See if you know this place?
I sent an e-mail asking for it's location. In your search did you find anything on Papa Will's father or Lynna's family roots. I sent you an email earlier today too about that too.

Thanks for keeping this up. This is great!!!!

Cemetery Corrections Made
Hey, I checked out the cemetery and copied some of the information from the two (Bertha & Pa - Percy Jack) and updated mine. So now you can delete the other two.

You might check out Unity Springs Cemetery in Dekalb and Double Butt in Phoenix, Az for more of our relatives.

I believe I only have about 64 but that includes both sides of my family.

So good to know you, cousin.
