RE: Dyas/Shippey-Holy Name Cem.
Margaret, I literally stumbled upon that marker while looking for another for Costello. It was literally the next grave marker to the left. It was almost like it was calling out to me...LOL Ron

Hello Peggy,

You are very welcome! While there, I took many more pictures of related grave stones and will be sending them to your e-mail address. And, I am honored that you can use the pictures!

Peggy I cannot add the memorial photo to Alice's page because you already have 4 pictures posted. If you want the memorial picture you will have to delete one of the pics:)

RE: Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery
My maiden name is Suggs, my family is from the Troy, NC area with Virginia Beach and Roanake included. My husband, Beach, is from Roanake are and NC. So who knows we have more in common. I also have the Key family, Francis Scott Key, is my 9th great uncle. So the East coast is an area I am longing to go to. There is another very small grave site just down the road from Christ, my daughter in law is going to get it. She saw it the other day. Maybe there might be someone there for you. I did notice that whoever was putting in the names at Christ did not connect them. That will be a good project. Have a Blessed day.

RE: Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery
Well, Thank you so much for your kind words. It was my pleasure. I too have relatives there. My sister's ex-husband's family the Wagner's are there. I am so sorry the tombstones are in dire need of care. I, this morning, gathered brushes to carry with me from now on, like for tomorrow. I am going to the Natchez City Cemetery, it is older than Christ Episcopal! I have a couple that I am going to redo at Christ also. But anytime you have someone in the Adams-Jefferson-Franklin county area, let me know.

RE: Emley marker - Mount Carmel
They're all yours now. I've been going over to Mt. Carmel almost every day lately to get more photos, so if you want me to remove the broken statue, I can. Also, if you want to order a new one to replace it (or whatever) I can handle that also. It's less than a mile from my house. Feel free to e-mail me at my address about

I was raised in Annandale, VA

RE: Emley marker - Mount Carmel
Grrrreat photo!! Love it.

Yes, that headless statue appears to be connected to the Emley plot.

Also there were 2 more Emleys that I just added: William P. (pic of grave) and what appears to be his wife, Julia R. I couldn't find confirmation of her being his wife, but I connected them. Let me know if I'm wrong, please. Want me to turn all the Emley's over to you?

Let me know if you want me to do anything about the broken statue . . .

RE: Moore - Forest Lawn Norfolk
Hope I transferred the right one to you. I know I was really glad to find someone had entered my g-grandmother, especially since she is not in this area.

RE: Wood Cemetery, Jefferson Co, MS

Thank you so much for your kind words and I am happy to have helped you and others in their research and rememberances. This is part of a self-imposed project to photograph each tombstone in Jefferson and Claiborne Counties, MS, as I needed something to do in my retirement. I also realized that we are losing these small cemeteries (three lost in one area since surveys in 1995 - due to erosion and farming/logging activities). Part of this effort is to include all of the black cemeteries and their unique stones; something no one else in the area is doing.

As far as your research, please realie that the Green Cemetery at Springfiled and the newly enteryed green cemetery contain people closely related to the ones in the Wood Cemetery.

Good luck and let me know of anything ele I can provide you.

I have just completed adding some new memorials and adding photos for all but one grave in the Wood Cemetery. There are quite a few SAC messages out but thought you would like to know.

RE: Wood Cemetery, Church Hill MS
If we keep looking we will find a connection. Texas, where I live, has many families named Wood including a Wood county. Have you seen that many have said that wood was realy Atwood when it came out of England? Beverly

RE: Wood Cemetery, Church Hill MS
My great grandfather was FF Wood, Eupora, MS. He was the som of Furnifold wood. I have them back to North Carolina. If I have made the correct links I go back to Daniel Wood of Massachusettes. Beverly

RE: Wood Cemetery, Church Hill MS
I am a Wood also. My family is from Mississipi so any time I find the family name in a cemetery listing I add them. This cemetery would have come from a set of books on MS Cemetery and Bibles. My local genealogy library has this set of books, 22 I think. I may be a little off on the exact title of the books. I add any cemetery I can. Looking at the list of Wood names, I am thinking that none of the names, are from my branch of the wood family. My Wood members were in webster county, Ms, when they settled into MS from Alabama.

RE: Emley/Dyas graves
Hi Peggy, I'm glad that I could help you out. This Cemetery is very close to where I live and my Grandparents and an Uncle are resting there as well.Just so you know , your ancestors are located under a tree and are close to the driveway that meanders throughout the cemetery. It's a very nice location.

RE: Emley marker photos
Margaret, The names on the markers are 1) Sarah Emley Jan. 5, 1826 - Feb. 28, 1900. 2) John Sherman Emley, son of Fletcher & Sarah Nov. 10, 1866 - Nov. 7, 1884 3) Maximo E. Emley 1852-1918. Another web site list these Emley's as being buried at Woodhill, are any of them your line? Alice 1864, Joseph C. 1855, Susannah 1841, and Wilbur C. 1930. They are all buried in the same section as Fletcher. If they are put in a photo request and the next time I'm down there I will look for them and also get Fletcher's photo. Many of the older stones are in bad condition and some have been damaged in two recent storms. I'll do my best. Teal
