I'm sorry! I got excited and forgot to leave his info.
Pounds Pool Cemetery
Thank you again!

I am thinking this may be my great-great-uncle. His name was Joseph Miller. He was the brother to my great-great grandmother Abbey Miller who is buried at Turtleskin Cemetery in Hancock County, MS.
They have a brother named William Young Miller who is buried at New Palestine Cemetery in Picayune, MS. Their parents were James Miller, who is buried at Adams Cemetery in Varnado, MS and Bede Hesters (Still looking for Bede).
I see you have a few of the Miller family memorials set up and was wondering if you knew anything about the family and where I may find where they are buried. Abbey Miller was first married to Aaron Painter(who I'm also looking for) and they had my great-grandmother, Susan Elizabeth Painter. She is buried at Turtleskin Cemetery as well. I sure appreciate any help you can provide.
Thank You! My e-mail is email@example.com or you may respond through Find A Grave.

Sorry to hear you have a family emergency. Here is the poem. It was written on a scrap of paper by Pete in around 1944. I also have a locket with Pete's photo on one side and my Mothers fiance at the time - George Reeve on the other side. George was a tail gunner in a Lancaster bomber and unfortunately was shot down over Germany in 1942. I assume he never met Pete. Pete became a good friend of the family. Every body loved Peter.
Poem by Peter Byrd Stansted
91st Air Depot Group
Poem untitled and given to my mother Ivy Stone:.
I cannot reach a distant star
By praising up this G.E.R
But praise is often overdue
And stars are only there for few
So nothiing ventured nothing gained
A saying that is self explained
He strikes me as a pleasant lad
Seldom morbid, never sad
Romantic ever more than I
With fewer castles in the sky
And whom would not romantic be
With one to love as sweet as she
And were I seeking for a friend
My present list I would amend
For he is much the same as me
And goes through life as happily
But friendship is a foolish thing
When I cannot a talent bring
And thus my list remains the same
But in my mind I know his name
I see him too as one who stays
Contented with the darker days
Nigh blind perhaps to clouds above
But well content with words of love
The same self words in which I find
The secrets of an inner mind
When dawns the day when he is gone
Great memories will linger on
But I poor poet will remain
In hope of meeting him again
And in such times as I can find
The assets of a sincere friend
I hope you enjoy this deep, wonderful Poem

I live in England and during the war Pete became a friend of the famaily. He was stationed at Stansted Airport under 91st Air Depot Group servicing Marauders B26. He wrote a wonderful poem before he returned to the USA. Family members may wish to have the document or I could enter it.We live just five minutes from Stansted.
|Samantha||The Italian Cemetery|
Everyone who was buried in the Italian Cemetery before 2009 is memorialized, and almost all of them since then too. Albeit poorly spelled, or under the wrong married last name, and sometimes the death year is wrong because the body was moved and it has the re-burial year instead of the death year listed.
I am happy to add any obituary you find for any memorial in this cemetery. If you find an obit. and it's not apparent which memorial it goes to, feel free to email me and I will locate it for you and straighten it out so it's easy to find in the future.
I'm still working my way through the tangled mess so I can always move to the next memorial that someone is messaging me about. That is not an inconvenience. It's a pleasure to have input.
