Sam Davis Obit
I don't know anything about maintaining find-a-grave, but here is obit for Samuel Davis.

 Judge Samuel Davis

The Christian Advocate clipping, New Orleans, Louisiana, January 1869

Judge Samuel Davis died December 26, 1868 at his residence near Americus, Jackson County, Miss., aged seventy three years, eight months, fifteen days. Judge Davis was born in Bryant County, Georgia on April 11, 1795, the son of George Davis and Elizabeth Lanier.
In 1811, while in the vigor of youth, Judge Davis moved to the community then known as Pascagoula Parish, Louisiana Territory, where he spent his long and useful life.
On February 1, 1821, he married Miss Susanna Goff, with whom he lived in peace and happiness until his death, and who now, in age and in widowhood, moans her bereavement.
In 1826, Brother Davis embraced religion and the year following cast his lot with the people of God by uniting with the Methodist Episcopal Church. From that time, during the remainder of his life, he walked before God with a pure heart and willing mind, serving the church, as occasion required, either as class leader, steward or Sabbath school superintendent. When possible, his seat was filled in the church, and the minister always met a hearty welcome at his house. By his Christian bearing and upright course among men, he gained the entire confidence of his fellow citizens, and received positions of trust and profit at their hands. Having the entire satisfaction of his numerous friends, discharged the duty of the office of Clerk of the Circuit of the Probate Court for twenty years, commencing in 1833. He was afterward elected Probate Judge and occupied that important position eleven years before his death.
No man had more friends or stood higher as an active and useful citizen as Judge Davis. The sickness with which he died was protracted for many months, and his suffering was great, but he bore it all with patience and could say to the last, the will of the Lord be done. Time and again he expressed his willingness to die. He was anxious to depart and be with Christ.
While lying on his bed languishing, being unable to sit up, he would frequently request that the songs of Zion be sung, sometimes singing himself, and often rejoice in the love of God. As the disease advanced, his mind became impaired, and for some weeks before his death, he was exceedingly flighty, but no cloud for a moment ever intervened between him and his God. On the 26th of December his earthly course was finished. He breathed out his life in perfect peace and died in the arms of Jesus. His aged companion, eight children, fifty three grandchildren, and four great grandchildren are left to moan their loss, but they sorrow not as those who have no hope. A.F. Jones

RE: Susan Goff Davis
I am looking at the names in the cemetery, I may be wrong but it looks like one of the Ramsay kids married one of Martha and Francis Cunningham's kids.

RE: Ware family
I may go sometime and find the graves and take pictures and try to find out. If I can find out and if I can ever locate Luther's in Jackson I may try to get a marker put up. Will let you know if I ever do.

RE: Ware family
Linda I would like to add that I in 1982 my husband and I went to Foley Alabama and visited with my grandfather last living brother John. He was 86 or 87 at the time. I had never met any of my grandfathers family until then. He was in a chair and had a broken back and was strapped in the chair. His mind was not good and he kept asking about the weather. But I was glad I got to see him. He died in 88 and is on F.A.G.

RE: Ware family
Linda thank you so much for your info on the Ware's. Luther Joseph Ware was my grandfather and is buried in Jackson Mississippi. I am the one that put on Find A Grave. He is in an unmarked grave and I have never been there to try to search. My Mother and Father went a good many years ago but my Daddy could not remember where he was and with no marker could not find. I put a picture of him on there. He is with a little girl but did not know who she is. Dorman and Julia were my great grandparents. She also is on Find A Grave but it states that her grave is unmarked. I have heard stories of her all my life and that she was indeed part indian. One interesting story about her I have heard many times. When my Daddy's oldest sister was a baby she got chicken pox and Julia got a knife and wanted to cut the blisters off. I guess that may have been some old indian way. But my grandmother got very angry and would not let her near her baby. As for James I found him on Find A Grave also but it sates he is in an unmarked grave. The links from this is all I have so far but I will keep searching. I would love to find some of the forehands. Julia's line. Perhaps someone somewhere has a picture of her or Dorman. Thanks again for your response. I will keep digging until I find more.

Ware family
Linda, I found you on the find a grave page for a James Ware. My grandfather was Luther Ware. His Father ,my great grandfather was Dorman Ware and I found my great great grandfather James Ware. I have found and know very little about the Ware history and am trying to piece together through find a grave and ancestry. Are you related in any way or just a volunteer for F.A.G.??I would like to know more on the Ware's. I have always been told that Dorman's wife Julia, my great grandmother was indian.. Also I noticed James is in an unmarked grave. Is location known??
