Harriet Fortenberry Whittom
Thank you Shirley for all your hard work. I have a question about the citing for HARRIET WHITTOM. Her tombstone has HARRIET WHITTOM STEWART on it. I think she was married to ANDREW STEWART. My research shows they were married on 28 Jan 1897 in Columbia, Marion Co., Mississippi, and they are listed on the 1900 census. She is on the 1920 census listed as a widow.
I am trying to find out when and where ANDREW STEWART(b 1825 in South Carolina and first married to Sarah) died and is buried.
Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Sally Lamar
Fortenberry ancestry connection
Hello Shirley, My name is Sally Lamar, I am also related to the Fortenberry ancestry. My 2nd great grandmother was Missouri Julia Fortenberry. My great-grandmother was Sallie Pope Lewis. and my grandmother was Eva Lewis McCormick. My mother was Helen Lewis. My family is from Foxworth, Mississippi. However, I live in Kansas City, Missouri, recently retired and now getting interested in my ancestry. How are you related to the Fortenberry family? I was so suprized that lots of children were born and wonder if they all stayed in Mississippi. Would you know if any Lewis family members are still living? I have pictures of me with them as a child and anxious to find anyone that might be have some answers.
Thank you, Sally Lamar

Find A Grave# 109771924
Do you have any additional information regarding John Grimsley? I am descended from his son John I. Grimsley and his wife Emily Holmes. I have been trying to identify John I. Grimsley's mother or his father's parents. Though Susan Guy might be his mom but marriage license shows Susan Cook was married to Henry Guy and then to John Grimsley and her marriage to John Grimsley happened when John I Grimsley was about 7 years old. I would appreciate any information you can find.

RE: Sumrall
Thank you for responding to my post. My grandfather provided information on the death certificate of Mary "Polly" Sumrall Dement saying her mother was Evelyn Crawley. My research points to Evelyn may be also known as Amanda. Do you have information on her? How about her sister Sarah and brother George? I have found John and Eligeh. John died without children I believe as he left a small sum of money to my mother and siblings I believe. Do you have a family tree? Thanks again, for responding as you can tell there is much I want to learn of this side of my family. Betty

Shirley, would you please consider removing two of the gravestone photos from Find A Grave Memorial #87095694. There are three identical photos that were placed there by yourself. I find that sometimes Find A Grave goes a bit haywire and over does adding photos and memorial pages.

Thanks, Ann
