Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy for about 11 years. I enjoy adding information to FAG and I enjoy adding obits to the memorials. I go to the Columbia, Marion County, Ms. Court House to go through the old news papers and add the obits to FAG. I appreciate everyone that has added the obits on the memorials. I am interested in the following names in my family tree: Fortenberry, Forbes, Tolar, Crawley, Merritt, Mullins, and McCleland (McLeland).

Question about 2 memorials
The memorial for Jake Pierce and Charles L. Pierce: Are these two different people or the same person? My aunt, Bertie Mae Perkins was married to Jake Pierce. These 2 people have the same birth & death dates.

Also you said you searching for the family descendants of McLeland. My grandson is in a relationship with a girl named Candance McLeland. I was wondering if at all possible it could be some of your desendants. She is from Purvis, MS.

If you could help me with these questions, I would be gratefully appreciative for any info you could give to me.

My email is

John T. Lewis first husband of Mary Jane Sumrall
Hi Shirley,
I saw at the site of Mary Jane Sumrall that you added at Mary Jane's first husband was John T. Lewis. Thank you. This is what I also have per Lewis records. It also showed that Mary Jane's daughter Hettie was a child of John Lewis, (son of Lemuel Lewis and Polly Williams)

William Ragan Gallaway - grandson of Revolutionary War Patriot
Do you have any idea where proof was found that Matthew Gallaway the grandfather of William Ragan Gallaway was a Revolutionary War Soldier/patriot? What unit was he with and where did Matthew fight?
