Paula Rhodes Wright
Laura Ann Lightsey
Mr. Rogers,
My Name is Paula Rhodes Wright.
I am trying to see if Laura Ann Lightsey maiden was Rhodes of Jasper, Mississippi place of her birth. Her dad would have been Oliver Christian Rhodes and mom Sarah ann Mixon. Laura Ann married I believe George Richard Lightsey.
My mother was Genevieve Rogers of Texas. I was wondering if she could be of your line Of Rogers.
Thank you,

This needs to be public -- I try being polite but sometimes :)

This is what I received from "Ralph" via Find A Grave email::

"Well I finally got back to talking to the Grandson and found the correct cemetery that was added recently.

You need to delete this memorial (he was already listed in the correct cemetery).

Here is the correct Find A Grave number for J E Scarborough 103973818

I took the liberty of sending you obit to be added to the person who added the first one on Find A Grave."

1st & Last: the obit was copied by "Ralph" and sent to you from a memorial I set up because I could not locate the memorial based on name/dates in Jones county

I have been working newspapers from two counties and have photo'd quite a number of cemeteries and added from the pics so will make a few human errors in the process of getting family stories out there. I hope you have a headstone pic.

C. Granberry
I been researching the Granberrys for over a year now and I have been able to find a great deal of information. If you will look in Find a Grave at the Granberrys buried Jesse Bryant Cemetery in Covington County and Providence Baptist Cemetery in Forrest County, there are numerous links to Mary Granberry Carter's parents, siblings, and children. One of Mary's children, Candice, married a Hemphill -- a timber company owner from Hattiesburg, but she died very young and is buried in same cemetery as Mary Carter. If you click on the link for Candice Carter Hemphill and for her husband, I think you will find an interesting story about the Carter side of your family. There's lots more that I just haven't found the time to input yet. I'll keep in touch, if you like; meanwhile, if you find any info on Alton/Allen Richmond Granberry of Maggie Mae Granberry Rainey who married Sim W. Rainey please leave me a message.

Thanks for the response.

Mary Granberry Carter
I see by your note that Mary Granberry Carter was your great-great-grandmother. On some records, she is listed as Mary R. Carter. Would you happen to know her full name?
Also, I am looking for information on her brother Allen/Alton Richmond Granberry. On the 1900 Census for Perry County (now Forrest) he was living with his, by then, widowed sister, Mary Carter, along with his second wife, Mary Fone Granberry. On the 1910 Census for Forrest County (that area became Forrest County in 1906) Mary Carter is deceased and Mary Fone Granberry is living in the same location and listed as widowed. I have searched at length, but have been unable to locate any death date or burial place for Allen Richmond, Alton Richmond, or A. R. Granberry/Grandberry/Granbury and Mary Fone Granberry. Do you have any info you can share?

RE: Rogers family in Bay Springs cemetery
I found more Rogers buried at Bay Springs. I sent them and others in on a spreadsheet. They should be visible shortly. If it hadn't started raining, I would have probably found more. I only had about 3 or 4 rows to go on the old section.

RE: Willis Cemetery
google these coordinates for this cemetery and you will be able to accually see the graves, although small 33' 747194 and 89' 9522945
on horsepen road, about 1 mile east of the junction with the Cadaretta/pleasant grove road. the grave yard is about 1/2 mile of walking on a good trail thru the woods from the road,, only 1 way in, if you could go as the crow flies it would be about 1/4 can see the trail on google maps aerial view. If you know anything of a cemetery with a William or Sarah Rose in it from this area please contact me, they lived in this area around the same time your ancestors lived there, 1840-1870. found some graves at Providence and Lucas for Rose kin, married into Kincaid and Williams families..

RE: Shirley Rogers
Very welcome. I always like to get the memorials closest to direct family links. I did some of those at Salem originally to get them on here for relatives like yourself who had not had the opportunity to visit the cemetery and/or not know where the ascendants were buried to have the opportunity to add information such as you have provided.

My sister and I replaced the headstone for our paternal gparents this past summer after I visited Salem and found it broken and turned onto its face which made it unavailable to most seekers.

Regards and keep adding.

RE: directions to willis cemetery
O K, but try to improve the description of where this place is at on the F A G page, I found out yesterday the Ligon cemetery and the Williams cemetery are the same, they are in the same area, just off the Butputter Road, that road has changed names so many times until it is confusing,,,could be called dividing ridge road, or the earl gillion rd. now it is the Eddie Willis Rd, the Mr Phillips that you said owned the land told me how to get there but the road is not maintained and in terrible muddy condition during the winter..hope you find it...
