Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in cemetery research since 2004, concentrating on old sites in Claiborne County, Mississippi. I love the peace and solitude that comes with surveying an old site and discovering whose name will be on the next stone. I have been very fortunate in getting the cooperation of hunters and land owners in gaining access to so many of the sites in the county, and my good fortune has resulted in a couple of published books, namely, Carved in Stone: Cemeteries of Claiborne County, Mississippi, and Whispers in the Cedars: Port Gibson, Mississippi's Wintergreen Cemetery.
I get a thrill out of being able to put people in touch with their long-lost ancestors and will always be happy to transfer any memorials to their relatives or other loved ones. And despite my e-mail address, I do NOT dig up bones!

Thanks for the Terry O Keesee
William, I appreciate having the Toombstone photo you took in Cedar Hill Cemerery. Terry O Keesee was my Grand Uncle. Never met him even though I was about 11 when he died. He and my grand aunt Louise Halpin divorced. Maybe that was why we never met. Again, I am thankful that you were able to fulfill my photo request.

Keep up the good work.

Relinking Father and Son
Dear Mr. William Sanders,

I noticed that you removed the link between Josiah Rundell Junior (#69208786) (whom you manage) and his father Josiah Rundell Senior (#125330192) (whom I manage). Is there any chance you would be willing to reconnect them?

I understand that there are some people in the Find A Grave community that do not respect memorials that do not have a specific gravesite listed, an unfortunate feature of the elder Josiah Rundellís memorial. Please understand, however, that for those of us who are trying to reach back to our familyís history, sometimes simply knowing in which town, or county, or state they died is useful information for our historical research. Knowing, for instance, that my great-great-great-great-great grandfather, Josiah Rundell, died in Claiborne County, MS, in 1816, is very helpful for me and my family members. It may not be a specific gravesite, but it gives us the graveís general location. Additionally, while I search for these graves so that I can someday list the specific spot, in reality, it is highly improbable that they will be found. So in some cases (at least for now) naming Claiborne County, MS, is the best help for my family that I can provide.

I believe my research is sound. It is based in the Claiborne County Court records. I am quite certain that Josiah Rundell (#69208786) is the son of Josiah Rundell (# 125330192). Would you please consider re-linking them?

Thank you for any consideration you give this request to relink them.
