Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in North Mississippi, but grew up and went to school in Memphis. I'm currently doing research on 3 family mother's side, The Bookers and my father's side, The Lees, and my late husband's, The Johnson's. It's very interesting. The cemeteries can give us much important information. All of my Mother's family is from down in Tippah County, MS. Mostly Ripley and Oxford. In my research I found that William Faulkner is a 1st cousin 1x removed. My Daddy's family is The Lee's. Found that Gen. Robt.E.Lee is my 3rd cousin 4x removed. Also Richard Henry Lee and Francis Lighfoot Lee, brothers, who both signed the Declaration of Independence are also my cousins. As is their father Thomas Lee, who was the first Govenor of Virginia.

I'm a ballroom dancer and I love music, art, the computer and photographing cemeteries.

I'm not a professional photographer - my photographs are NOT copywritten or signed. I do not have a photography business that I'm trying to advertise on FAG. You have my permission to use any photographs that I've taken for your ancestors. I thought that was what we do this for....for YOU!

I'm not sure why you took a picture of his headstone but thank you. He was my grandpa and he pretty much raised me while my parents worked full time. Coming across this has me crying so hard, my grandpa was my hero and I miss him every single day still. I've haven't been back since his remembrance ceremony and this is the firstime time I've seen his stone.

Thank you. Thank you so much.

Dear Sue,
I am writing this for a friend who is 88 years old. I have been working for years in family history and a few weeks ago my friend asked if I could help her find out where her brother (Brookland) was buried. You see we live in Idaho and because of family issues they weren't able to attend his funeral and his wife was not forth coming as to place of burial. When she asked me to help she said my dying wish is to know where he is buried. When I got your response with the picture she just cried. So her response was to tell you how much she thanked you for doing this for some one you didn't even know.

Sue, Thank you so very much for trying. I really appreciate you time and effort!!!

On a different note, per chance, did your late husband have a ancestor named Elijah Jefferson Johnson, who moved from Glen Allen, AL to Panola County, MS? EJJ was one of my GG-Grandfathers.

Thankful Army Brat..Judy P
Thank You
Thank you for posting the picture of Richard Lee Girard's monument.

I attempted to post a picture of Dick from my tablet and I can't. I have posted pictures in the past with no problem.

You are a wonderful person for providing this service.

Thanks again, Judy.

You might want to take a look at the memorials you set up in this cemetery. Quite a few are duplicates. I think there must have been duplicate cemeteries that must have been merged.

Thanks for all you do on Find A Grave.

RE: Booker Family
I'm not related to any of the Bookers, I just happened to have photographed most of the Hampton cemeteries.

RE: Portis
Hi Sue,

If you want to transfer - that is OK. But I'm a quite distant relative 1st cousin, 4X removed.

Check your records, but I believe this James is the son of James P Portis, born in NC and who spent most of his time in Mississippi- 1870 and 1880 census records from there with both of them listed.

Thanks for photographing the marker and entering creating the memorial.
