|Bio and Links|
|I was born and grew up in Leakesville, Greene Co., MS. I use the name B-24Co-pilotBro on findagrave in honor of my brother, Flight Officer, George F. Churchwell, Jr., U. S. Army Air Force, a one-month (youngest in his class) Turner Field, GA, flight school graduate, who as a young B24E Co-pilot was killed in a military airplane crash in 1943, as a result of successive port engines failures during a night time training mission.I have been formally studying families with ties to Greene County, MS, since the 1970s, to many of which I am related. In addition to Churchwell, I am a descendant of Breland, Daughdrill, Harrell, Freeman, Williams, Shepherd, Smith, Roberts, Chatham and Barnes.|

She may be buried here:
Yankee Dan McInnis Cemetery
Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery is located on Lakewood Drive, Southwest of Leakesville, in an obscure location on land once owned by Daniel Henry Clay, aka "Yankee Dan" McInnis. Yankee Dan moved away after the death of his second wife, Mary Lavenia Lewis. Abandoned for many years, it has the remnants of a fence that was severely damaged by loggers. People who lived and hunted in the area remember that there was evidence of a few additional burials there that were unmarked.
Directions: Travel southward on Louisiana Street from Lafayette & Louisiana Streets in Leakesville. Louisiana Steet becomes Jernigan Road; continue about 2.2 miles on Jernigan Road, turning left onto Lakewood Drive, thence about 0.1 mile just past a slight bend southward in the road. The cemetery is located on the north side of the road. Only one marker, that of Mary Lavenia McInnis, is visible.
