RE: Silver Springs
I've never heard of a Silver Springs Cemetery. The nearest cemetery to where the Silver Springs settlement was is the Richardson/Adams Cemetery. If you look at a section map of Tippah county, Richardson Cemetery is on county road 529. This is in R5E T3S, section 33. Go back to county road 530 and take a left. This road winds to the left and down the hill into the bottom. Silver Spring Creek is in this bottom and that is where the settlement was. Obidiah Reuben Richardson, who is buried at the Richardson Cemetery, owned land in Section 34, and his son, John Richardson, who is also buried at Richardson Cemetery, owned land in Section 27. If you look at the map (which is on the internet) you will see SILVER SPRINGS HILL to the northeast of Silver Spring Creek. That area is not a hill, it is bottom land, now known as Hatchie Bottom. I'm thinking that Silver Springs Hill is probably the hill that Richardson Cemetery is on, there just wasn't room for those words on that exact spot on the map. I have no idea when that map was made. Most of the early burials in Richardson Cemetery were families who lived in the Silver Springs settlement, and I suspect that there are a lot of unmarked graves there. I live in Tippah Co., in the Golden Hill Community. Hope this info helps. I will ask some people who live, or are originally from the Silver Springs and Spout Springs area if they have ever heard of a Silver Springs cemetery, but I'm thinking that Richardson Cemetery is it.

RE: Gray's Cemetery
This is all done. I was creating this from my phone and misspelled Cemetery. I cannot get that corrected. Any hints?

RE: Bishop Family Cemetery
I got the info from Harriett's (Find A Grave #133969039) obit (1879) that she was buried in the family cemetery near her home. If you know where District 2 is located in the 1870 census, that will be an indication of where the cemetery is located. I have not been able to locate anything that has the map of the districts.

RE: Raymond Box
Jerry,

Some of my in-laws are coming to Fresno in a week or so. I will have them look at the picture. Annette is Raymond & Rosetta's daughter. I do not know the other ones in the photo. I only met Raymond once and then he and Rosetta divorced.

Mike

RE: Blue Mt Cemeteries
Hey thanks for your note. The Grays Cemetery is enclosed in its own white fence with a separate drive and entrance. However from the Flatwood Grove cemetery there is a gate to the Grays cemetery. The Flatwood has no fence other than at the back. The white fence looks really new.
