Linda -- Which section/plot do you think is right, the one in the sexton's journal or the one that was already on the page? Or should I just leave the discrepancy?

RE: Farrells at Greenwood
Thanks. I was hoping for information from 1863. Unfortunately, Sherman took care of most of those records.

Do you mind sharing the dates of the city sexton's records that you are working with? I would love to look at these. You can send to my email if you don't want to leave a public message. I'm at Thanks!

Catherine Farrell Giles
Thanks so much for the information about Cathy Giles' death. This is my husband's family. Her brother, Matthew Farrell, is buried in an unmarked grave in the plot next to this one. This Matthew Farrell is my husband's gg grandfather.
I do know there is a Matthew Farrell in a marked grave on the other side of the cemetery. This is a cousin of my Matthew Farrell.
I hope someday to determine my Matthew's first wife's name so that we can get a marker for both of them.
Many, many thanks for all of your diligent work at Greenwood!

You are most welcome. I was very glad to have been able to find them. Any other memorials you need located around the tri-county area of Hinds, Rankin and Madison Counties in Mississippi; let me know, I will do my best to help.

I'm glad it worked! I was afraid that having to write it the way I did was going to make it hard to follow or was going to cause me to leave something out or otherwise screw it up in some way.

C. Granberry
George Crawford Granberry and Children
Thank you very much for the information on George Crawford Granberry and his children buried at Greenwood Cemetery. I appreciate you taking the time to send me a message to let me know where they are buried. I found their names on a list compiled long ago of some who died in Hinds County during the 1878 typhoid fever epidemic, but that was as far as I could find information. Thanks to volunteers like you many of us are able to fill in another piece of our family's history. Keep up the great work.
The hunt is on for the final resting place for Mary Ann Eugenia Baley Granberry; perhaps, she is there too with her babies.

W.H. Bradley
Could you double-check the old records that say W.H. Bradley was buried in 1983? If that's true, both the birth date and the death date on his marker are WAY off.

Linda, Are you a descendant of the Thompsons of Halifax and Prince Edward County, VA?

RE: Harrison-Thornton-Griggs cemetery
Yeah..that was some good eating. The Heil's daughter,"L" Marie, took the reigns in the 1940's and then in the 1970's her son, Fred, became the last owner. After all those years, the restaurant served their last meal around 2001. My grandmother and grandfather's home (B.F. & Clara Scott)was just two doors down from the hotel and restaurant. The hotel used to be called "The Heil Hotel". When people started seeing the news reels at the picture show and listening on the radio to the Germans saluting and saying "Heil Hitler!".... Mr. Heil quickly changed the name (1941) to "The Mendenhall Hotel". lol. What a great little town, Mendenhall, the "Mayberry" of Mississippi.

RE: Harrison-Thornton-Griggs cemetery
Thank you Linda for posting the Goodwin family memorials there in the Harrison-Thornton-Griggs cemetery.Thank you also for all of your time given over the years to Find A Grave. The Goodwins of Noxubee County are parents, brothers and sisters of the Goodwins found in Mendenhall. My great grandmother's sister, Annie Belle Goodwin and her husband Frank Heil opened the Revolving Tables Restaurant in Mendenhall back around 1915.I am related to almost all of the Scott, Walker and Goodwin families of these two counties.

Thanks, I'll try to find it again now that I know it's called Thompson family tree. If I don't have any success, I'll get you to invite me. Back later... Jan

Elizabeth Walker Farrar Cade
Linda, I tried to find the Cade tree you put on called buzzincuz21. Unfortunately, there is no way to search for a public member tree by name and I can't find you on the member directory...if so, there's no tree by that name linked to any of the dozens of Linda Thompsons. when I search trees for Elizabeth with all the known info, I get thousands of hits and don't have the patience to scroll through them all to find yours. So, can you help me figure out an easy way to get to your tree on Ancestry? If not, then maybe you could send me an invite through I'll send you my member name so you can do that, but would rather not post it on this public there a way I can send it to you privately? Thanks, Jan

Elizabeth Walker Farrar Cade
Thanks for your reply and helpful info about memorial #99915180, regarding her date of birth extrapolated from her age at time of death. How about her place of birth listed as Davidson County, TN--was that also in the cemetery records?
Like you, I found it interesting that she was listed as blind in the 1870 Jackson, MS census. Also, interesting to note that the family just above her on the census page (and presumably living next door) is a Charles Tapley (who married Ann Cade, daughter of William Wiley & Elizabeth) and a 30 year old William W. Cade (too young to be Elizabeth's husband and not aware they had a son by the same name, so who is he?)

Added by Jan on Feb 16, 2016 2:42 PM

Elizabeth Walker Farrar Cade
Your entry for Memorial #99915180 shows that she was born 1821 in Davidson County, Tennessee, USA. Could you please tell me the source of that information. Also, could you please share with me the citations or documentation to support her marriage to William Wiley Cade. The Elizabeth Cade I'm tracing appears in the 1870 Census in Jackson, Hinds, MS at age 51 which would mean she was born about 1819 in TN--only 2 years different than this one, but I'm trying to determine if this is the same person or not. Thank you. Jan

Alice Atkins Baker # 114702619
Alice Atkins Baker was a sister to Almyra Anderson Atkins (W. J. Baker in Pocahontas Cemetery, Hinds Co.) and a daughter of Joseph W. Atkins and Eleanor Jane Savage Atkins buried in Lone Pine Cemetery in Madison Co., MS. (Two sisters married two brothers of Atkins and Baker lines) Another daughter of Joseph W. Atkins was Ida Louella Atkins who married Dr. ? H.? Galloway. I think they may be buried down near Mississippi City or Gulfport. It was Dr. Galloway and his wife who took in the children of Alice Atkins Baker and Britton Lane Baker when the young couple died at a young age. I believe there were 4 children born to that marriage. Still working on it.

Harriet Austin Phillips
Please check entire name on this stone, for I believe her name was Harriett Wade Austin and she was married to Rev. James W. Phillips, M.D. in Sharon, Madison Co., MS in 1847. Her daughters were Flavia and Florence. According to the stone, Harriett was b. in 1818 but I cannot tell which month from the photograph of the stone. She was daughter of William Jackson Austin and Nancy Cole Austin who came to MS from NC via Wayne Co., MS (1820 Census). Flavia Phillips was ?2md ? wife of David H. Poston from Memphis who was a noted attorney. An article in the Jackson Clarion Ledger newspaper written in 1891 stated that she had come to visit "Mrs. Judge Alcorn, Hesperia Austin Alcorn aka Sissy, her aunt; and that she was the wife of the late D. H. Poston from Memphis. (see My research has come also from Hon. William S. Speer's " Sketches of Prominent Tennesseans", pp. 161, 162, orig. published Nashville,TN 1888, reprinted by Southern Historical Press, Inc., Greenville, SC 1978.
