Brumfield memorials

I would just like to say "thank you" and to tell you I appreciate the added documentation you provide for some of the memorials (like William Parker and Louisa T Brumfield.

I have been able to "flesh out" the Brumfields for my husband's ancestors from your thorough work.

It looks like you and my husband, Michael Henderson, are 4th cousins.

RE: Directions
Hello Chris. I do not know where the old Walker place is as I have never visited this cemetery...only heard about it. This is as much of a description as I was able to get. If you could perhaps locate a Pike County Cemetery Book that might possibly give you more info. I know there is one at the Osyka Library...probably one in Magnolia and McComb's libraries too.

John A Walker
Hi Chris, thank you so much for clearing up the confusion with this John and the other John A Walker. Do you by chance know where Nancy Elizabeth "Betty" Bullock is buried or anything about her?

Thank you for your help.

RE: Thanks!!
You are very welcome. I am still not finished. Mrs. Doris Ratliff Blackwell of Shreveport compiled her work on the Blackwells back in the 1980's. She let me make a copy of her compilation - from which I draw so much historical family information which needs to be preserved. Through the Steptoe lineage in the Blackwell line there are connections to George Washington's brother Samuel and Robert E. Lee's father's first wife, Matilda, from whom Light Horse Harry inherited Stratford Hall. Matilda was the dau. of Philip Ludwell Lee but her mother was a Steptoe. So many interesting stories & connections.

I appreciate all the very good work you have done to preserve the legacy of so many families in Walthall County. Find A Grave makes it so easy for someone to add a missing link to connect an entire family together. Whoever has Dr. Wendell B. Holmes' data on the Holmes family could make a great contribution by adding what they have to Find A Grave. I do not know who has his material - perhaps his son. I have a small portion of it on the line of one Holmes Confederate veteran, Thomas H. Holmes, down to the 1990's. I gave Dr. Holmes what I had on this line to straighten up some confusion then he added to the foundation I gave him.

I am convinced that more people who know each other are somehow kin to one another than they can begin to realize (especially in Southwest Mississippi & the Florida Parishes of Louisiana). I find a cousin everywhere I go.

My thanks & best wishes, MES

RE: Name Field
Thanks again for all you do for Find A Grave.

Added by Linda Davis on Jan 10, 2015 9:58 AM

Thank you for your corrections.

Also, each person gets a memorial even if they are in the same grave. Twins are done as "Twin #1" then the surname and the next one gets a memorial with "Twin #2" and the surname.

With your single memorial for "three unknown babies", you may want to consider doing three for each grave. For example: Infant #1 Unknown, Infant #2 Unknown, Infant #3 Unknown.

Many members state in the bio section on the Unknown memorials who are buried nearby as it may be family.

You have a great time graving in Mississippi...stay warm.

Names on the title of the memorial
I thought you want to read this from the website guidelines, which are located on the left side of any memorial under "Help with Find A Grave"

Memorial Naming Conventions:

If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
Use a period after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field.
Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

I happened to see that several of your memorial titles with the names in parenthesis. The indexing program doesn't know what to with this memorial so it goes to the top of the list instead of being in alphabetical order. For example: Unknown Unknown is indexed under "U" but (Unknown) or (Infant Daughter) just goes to the top of the index and no one can search for the grave. You have to have the last name to search even if it is the word Unknown.

Samuel Ophelia Brumfield
Sam's old house is just up the road from my aunt and uncle's house.
What has struck my interest was the house, as I have learned from my uncle, Sam was a heck of a man.
I have found lots of info on most of his wives and children. Except one,
Pauline "Polly" Brumfield
As I understand it, she was the last descendant that lived at the house.
I read on here that she may have had the last name, Livingston. Still even Livingston draws no information.
If you would, could you provide any information?
