Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from a career in dentistry. Now, with a little more time available I find that I am very interested in genealogy. My Grandfather, his aunt and sister were all very active in genealogy research. In fact, they were responsible for the wealth of family historical information we have. I have completed the book that Maurice L. Richardson, his aunt Nettie Converse Pritchett and his mother Lydia Mary Pritchett Richardson all worked hard to compile information for this family history. The book is: "Pioneers to the Present, The History of the O'Leary, Semmes, Richardson, Pritchett and related families." The book was over 46 years in the completion. It will continue to be a work in progress as long as descendants continue. I am honored to have played a part in it's publication.

RE: Edward William Sineath
Hello MaryAlice,
You are very welcome. I took the photos about a year ago. I photographed Section R where the grave for Mr. Sineath is located. Section R is a very beautiful section.

RE: John Pearse O'Leary, MD
There is a big sign at the cemetery that says the cemetery is managed by The Catholic Diocese of Jackson. The office address is 1493 Highway 17, Camden, MS 39045 and the phone number is 662-468-2354.
Earl Fleming works with the Greenwood Cemetery Association in Jackson, helping to repair monuments. I'm not sure how to get in touch with him, but you can contact them and ask. Their email address is
I hope this helps.

RE: J. Shelby Richardson
I added the information you requested. I also was able to find his obituary and added that so you might want to read it. How nice that you had a personal photo of him to add to his memorial!

I believe memorials are better when they are managed by family, so I transferred these to you. My information is limited to the grave marker, you can fill in the complete dates which are missing on the marker. Enjoy, Scott

Sometimes there are "site glitches" that result in multiple messages--the other day there were multiple e-mail notifications throughout much of the day.

RE: Elijah L. Richardson
It was easy to find. Birth year is 1821 and death year is 1877. He is the only match. Enjoy!! However, your issue is he was not buried in KY, but in Indiana as he had moved there by 1860 according to census records.

RE: O'Leary family in Saint Patrick Cemetery
Hi Mary Alice - transferred all of them as requested. I'm doing the same thing with my relatives. I've been away from all of this for a while but I'm now back at it.

RE: Ian M Downs
Hi Mary Alice - Yes, I was a little confused at first too. I noticed that Edward's middle name was Ian, so I thought that the Ian Downs marker I located might be his. but then I realized that the dates were too far off - Ian M. Downs passed away the year after Edward Ian Downs was born. So if the cemetery office gave you the correct location for Edward, I don't think there is a marker for him there. I also checked a pretty large radius around those graves to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

Let me know if you would prefer I remove the photos from Edward's memorial. I just wanted you to see the area I was talking about. And I would also be happy to transfer Ian and Judith to you if you wish.

RE: Julia Clare Cederstrand Downs
Hello Mary - As you probably already saw, I marked your photo request for Edward Downs as fulfilled. I normally wouldn't do that without actually finding a marker, but in this case I am 90% sure I located his burial location (as you listed), without a stone. So I posted two photos, one showing the plot marker and one showing the blank space next to his mother's stone. It's possible he was cremated and his ashes were buried with a permanent marker. I would check with the cemetery office to confirm what happened. I suppose it is also possible that the cemetery office attendant grabbed the wrong card and gave you his mother's location. In any case, if you get any new information and would like to re-post your photo request, I will gladly go out and try to find his stone again. I can also remove those photos of the area if you prefer.

I added a photo of Julia's stone as you requested. I also photographed the graves of Ian Downs and Judith Downs, who were buried right next to Julia. I have created memorials for them as well, and I would be more than happy to transfer them to you if you wish.

And now for a shameless plug: I also manage a genealogy business in the Chicago area. If you ever need additional help in our neighborhood, consider visiting Arborea Genealogy Chicago. Thanks!
