My appreciation to all who leave flowers/tokens on my family and friends' memorials or take the time to honor photo requests.

If you like to leave flowers please so so:
Buddy - our cat (2005-2014)

Laura Saulters - my niece (1979 - 2014)

Ron Bradley (2012) - fallen graver

Patricia Ann Langley Harvey - fallen graver

Pat Holden (2010) - my sister

Precious - our kitten

Please do NOT use my personal family photos on other websites without written permission from me. OK to use my headstone photos but please do me the courtesy of giving me credit. You can cite me as owner using this statement: Original headstone photo found on Permission to use headstone photo granted by Findagrave contributor MyrtisJane (#47090616).
Permission not granted for any other commercial use and/or for resale.

My grateful thanks to Findagrave for providing a place to preserve our cemetery headstone data. Thank you to all the wonderful individuals who contribute not only their time and energy but expense in locating and transcribing cemetery data. Here we can help preserve the memories and images of our family and friends, and we help strangers to us but not to those that find their family and friends among these web pages.

I encourage corrections and/or suggestions for updates. Any edit requests may take up to a month to make but most are completed quicker.

Most memorials I add are works in progress and I am always looking for links and additional information about them. Let's never forget our family and friends. Please leave flower tokens so I can tell that they have been visited.

I use my gas, camera, cleaning materials, and feet in order try to do a good job on each memorial. Please consider setting up a virtual cemetery for your family members. Any memorial can be entered into this virtual cemetery so you can have all your family together. Having someone in your family genealogy is not grounds for a memorial transfer. With thousands of contributors, there are many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Currently live in Walker County Georgia. This web site has helped me find many places I have been looking for. Thanks Find-a-Grave.

Researching Bishop's family from Magee / Mendenhall, Simpson County, Mississippi and Jones' family from Ellisville, Mississippi.
My Bishop family line is me, Walter R, T. Melvin, T. Webster, T. Spencer, Josiah, and Ezekiel Bishop. The "T" stands for Tillmon, Tilman, Tillman, etc.

My Jones family line is me, Margaret Ella, James Robert (Jim), and William Calvin Jones.

I am also interested in the Bishop line female spouse surnames of Sellers, Harvey, Sullivan, Warren, and Street.

I am also interested in the Jones line female spouse surnames of Carney and Stephens.

My husband family names include Craig, Howard, and Morris.

RE: Sintha Bryant Sellers 16415275
I have looked for the burial places of William James Bryant and Zana Wells Bryant but have been unsuccessful so far. I will continue the search as new information is continuously being added. No never knows from where the answer will come.

Have good night.

RE: Sintha Bryant Sellers 16415275

In researching Sintha Bryant Sellers, I find that she is listed on the 1870 at Ocaha Beat, Covington County, MS. Her birth state is listed as Alabama.
On 1860 for Smith County, MS William and Zana Bryant's daughter Cyntha is listed as born in Alabama.
On the 1850 census for Covington County, MS, Jesse and Sophia Bryant's daughter, Cintha was born in MS. The daughter of Jesse and Sophia Bryant, Cyntha born Sept. 10, 1844, married Thomas W. Lott. Thomas W. and Cyntha Lott are buried at Jesse Bryant Cemetery near her grandmother Synthia Peacock Bryant Phillips. Cyntha and her sister, Mary Ann, married brothers. Mary Ann married William A. Lott.

I believe this info rules out Jesse and Sophia Bryant as the parents of our ancestor, Sintha Bryant Sellers.

RE: Boggan cemetery
We enjoyed our visit out there. Thank YOU for doing such an excellent job of posting each burial at Boggan- when I was home uploading the photographs, it was easy to match them up to your memorials.
It looks like there may be an unmarked grave next to Mary Ann Gray - there is a small block of concrete sort of under the grass there, about a foot long - and I wonder if her second husband William B. Gray was buried next to her.
Say, do you have any idea about who the unmarked raised graves are for on the other side, supposedly a woman and her two children who died in a house fire?
