RE: James C. Bradford grave
In my Bradford line I also have some cousins marrying. Guess it was not uncommon in those days.

Feel free to add my name to your list.

RE: James C. Bradford grave
Hi Deb,

James C. Bradford is not buried in a cemetery. Actually, we don't know "where" he is buried. A distant cousin was out in his field and found the broken tombstones of he and his second wife. My cousin had a marker made that told the history of the land that Harris Bradford, the first, settled in Gibson Co. He then arranged the historical marker in the middle of the two tombstones that he found in his field. I would prefer to not share this exact location of this marker. I took the picture.

You say you descend from the younger Harris and Ellen Jane Bryant. Who was their child from whom you descend? I also descend from them.

Harry Canary
Hi from another Deb-I found an article on Harry Canary announcing his death in the Rawlins (Wyoming) Republican no. 48 November 28, 1918 page 1. I became interested in the Canary name when Harry and his father along with Hereford cattle were mentioned in a story written by my grandfather in perhaps the 60's. To access the article-go to the Wyoming Newspaper project and use the search engine. If you are interested in my grandfather's writing-I will gladly share that-nothing earth shaking-but the Canary's lived and made an impression!

Were you the one who wanted to know the identity of the photographer of James C. Bradford's grave? It was I.

RE: Cynthia Dooly/Dooley
I have the source as Janice Marie Reid Covert, granddaughter of Ada Irene James and James N. Barnett. I will try to find something to verify this. My line is JAMES so I don't have documentation outside my direct line. Synthia and Champ are cousins to me. I do have her listed on these census, but it's after she's married.
Synthia was counted in these census:
1860 Jasper Co., MS Census age 30 years.
1870 Jasper Co., MS Census age 38 years.
1880 Jasper Co., MS Census age 50 years.
I'll help you search. Send me a reminder at
I may can come up with something. Do you have their marriage license?

Hello Deborah.

I apologize for not sending the death certificate sooner. My house burned completely on August 20, 2014 and I lost a great deal of my genealogy and cemetery documentation. We only this week got moved into a new house. The firemen were able to retrieve some of my file cabinet drawers, so hopefully, some of the death certificates survived. We have 8 inches of snow and ice here today, so when the weather breaks, I'll try to dig into those file drawers and see if I still have the death certificate.

Thanks, Debbie

RE: Cynthia Dooly/Dooley
Hello. I have Synthia Ann Dooley, daughter of John D. Dooley and Synthia Clark, born 23 Oct 1827 and died 26 Oct 1911 in Jasper Co., MS. Synthia Ann is buried in the Old James Cemetery, Paulding, Jasper Co., MS. I do not have anything on Synthia’s siblings.

I have Synthia Ann married Champeers (Champ Pierce) James, son of Robert William James and Mary Ann Overstreet. Champ was born 12 Jan 1825 in Paulding, Jasper Co., MS and died 02 Aug 1888 in Jasper Co., MS and is also buried in the Old James Cemetery, Paulding, Jasper Co., MS.

Synthia was counted in these census:
1860 Jasper Co., MS Census age 30 years.
1870 Jasper Co., MS Census age 38 years.
1880 Jasper Co., MS Census age 50 years.

I have 10 children of this union. I also have a picture I believe to be Synthia and Champ. Does this match up with your info?

Melinda Arbuckle Risner
Hello Deborah.

I work with fund raisers and the recording and researching of the graves at Gibson Bayou Cemetery in Earle. I'm familiar with the Risner and Arbuckle families.

I have a death certificate for Melinda Arbuckle Risner, widow of Allen Risner. She died at St. Joseph Hospital in Memphis, Shelby Coumty, TN of Cerebral Hemorrhage (Stroke) and Hypostatic Pneumonia due to Hypertension. She was living at Earle at the time of her death.

Her date of birth was given as June 7, 1879 by her son, Charles H. Risner of Bald Knob. She was born in Charleston in Tallahatchie County, MS. She was buried at Cogbill Cemetery in Wynne on Nov 12, 1944 by Holt Funeral Home of Earle.

I noticed the date of birth differs from what is posted on her memorial for Cogbill Cemetery.

If you would like to have a copy of this death certificate, I will be glad to send it to you.

RE: George Pruitt
I so much agree with you. Researching with my dad on our trips has brought us much closer. Each time we would find an old cemetery, with all the JETT names on them, i couldn't help but think about the day when i would see my dad and moms name on a stone. It was so beautiful when my dad and i found my gg grandfathers stone. It was just this old carved upright rock, a bolder really with his initials and date of b/d carved into it, and then someone had painted the inscription with white paint that was peeling away. It was sad, really. Here he was, all alone with no family around him. No one has ever been able to find his wives stone, as she died early and left him to raise all his children alone. One of his daughters never married and took care of him for many years. So my dad and i had a granite flat marker made with had his full name, date of birth and death and had "Gone but not forgotten" inscribed at the bottom. We place it in front of the bolder so there would be a permanent record, as his original stone clearly was going to erode and crack some day. You can look up his record on Find a Grave. Edward Alexander Jett Meeker Oklahoma. There is a photo of him and the grave site with the marker we placed. It is SO important to honor those who have forged the road for us. Thank you for all the work you do in keeping the memories of those who have come before us.

RE: George Pruitt
My great grandfather is buried all alone by himself near Meeker, Oklahoma very close to where George lived. My dad and I just happened to meet him one day when we were looking at this old church that was being restored on a gravel road near the cemetery where my gg grandfather was buried. We met him twice, and the last time he said that he was awful sick with cancer and that he might not be around much longer. He was right. He flagged us down as we were pulling out of his driveway to tell us this, and we both thought wow. He must know his life is drawing to a close. It is just random how you meet people in your life. This happened to us the year before when we were in Manchester, TN and we met an old guy who took my dad and I all around showing us Civil War trails and marching trails. When we left he gave us both little round tobacco tins filled with old civil war bullets and shells and said these were the first he had ever given away. The next year he passed and we visited his grave the next time we were down that way. I just wanted to honor George by putting his record on Find A Grave. If you look him up that is me standing next to him by his truck. He was such a nice guy.

RE: George Pruitt
It looks like all the Pruitts on the Find A Grave website have gravestone photos already. If you check the list for the cemetery and find any that are not listed yet it would be great if you could add them!! Of just send me photos and I can add them. If you could get the woman next to George that would be great too. I wonder why he was not buried next to the other Pruitts? I wonder if that woman was his wife but remarried?

RE: Transfer
I also wanted to note that we photographed this cemetery in Sept. 2012. That is why I can't remember off the top of my head where they were located at.

Added by Heather on Jul 08, 2013 9:48 AM

RE: Transfer
All the graves that I have added were ones that we found by walking the cemeteries and photographing all the stones. My best friend and I started working on this project about 5 years ago in our spare time. We walk the entire cemetery and take pictures of every stone, even field stones. Occasionally we will run into caretakers of the cemeteries that will point out unmarked graves, but every name that I have posted to find-a-grave I have a picture of. I have added the pictures for your great-grandparents. I am sorry I couldn't be of more help. I can't tell you exactly where they are buried in the cemetery right now, but if you can give me a week or so, I will be happy to go out there and locate them for you!

RE: Ada Roeder children
Im sorry for the confusion, but I was giving the information on Adas children, in case you would liked to have made memorials, I did not make them. I dont believe I have any of her family members memorials, I just added pictures to existing memorials.

If you see any family members memorials that I do manage, please let me know who they are and I will gladly transfer them to you! =}

If you do not know how to add a memorial, I will have to refresh my memory on who the children are, and who needs a memorial. It will be a few days (We are not going to be in town tomorrow, Fathers Day)

Again, I'm sorry for the confusion!

Cheers, =}

Ada Roeder children
I found this info from a Gibson Bayou Cemetery page.(Earle Arkansas) I do not see a memorial for these children of James and Ada. Would you like to add them?

ROEDER, Elmer Lee – NS – Died Jan 1, 1936 as a young child. Date from AR Death Records. Son of James Elmer and Ada May RISNER Roeder.

ROEDER, Lillie Mae – NS – Abt 1926 – Died before 1930 - Daughter of James Elmer and Ada May RISNER Roeder who married about Apr 17, 1921. Elma, son, was age 8, born Jul 1891, when the 1900 census was taken and was living in Tyronza Twp with his parents, J. W. Roeder, 38 born May 1862 in TN, and Etta, 32 born Feb 1868 in IN and siblings John 14 born Jul 1885 TN, Claud 2 born Jul 1897 AR, and Earnest C. 7/12 born Oct 1899 AR plus niece Laura Carter 13 born Jan 1887 AR and boarder John W. Smith 31 born Oct 1868 in NC. Etta had 6 children with 4 living. Elmar, age 17, was still living with his parents, James W. and Mary Reeder, when the 1920 census was taken so his marriage had to be after that date. Lillie was the oldest child of Elmer and Ada according to Edna Roeder LEAPTROT who believes Lillie is buried under the road in front of the church. Ada was the daughter of Allen J. and Malinda Risner. (Elmer Reider, 32 born TN, was found on the 1930 census living in Norvell with wife Ada 28 AR, and children, all born AR, Myrtle 8, Dorothy 6, and Juanita 1 3/12.) Since there is a place for another child between Dorothy and Juanita, Lillie could be the missing child who would have been about age 4.) Sec. F
