RE: Andrew Snelgrove
That is so interesting and nice to find some of my kin who I didn't even know. That makes us doubly kin since you are related to the Snellgroves & Langleys and Sumralls & Cooleys. Now do you have brothers and sisters or were you an only child?
I have 1 brother (William) and he is still living. I also had 1 sister (Cindy) who has passed away. I have a tree on also if you care to take a look at it. Perhaps you could help me trace back my grandpa Sumralls tree. Mama and Uncle Terry Sumrall always said that his mother was Emma Bates, but I notice that Sarah Sally Overstreet is listed on and on find a grave as his mother. But, Emma Bates is listed as a wife of his father. Do you have any information about that?

RE: Andrew Snelgrove
I did see your tree. I also noticed that you are related to some Wests. I am also related to some Wests through my mom's side of the family. They were Sumralls, and my grandmothers family were the Cooleys from Shubuta/Waynesborro area. Do you know any Sumralls or Cooleys and are you related to any of them that you know of? All of my family were from the Shubuta/Waynesborro area. We moved to Florida years ago with daddy's work. The Snellgroves were loggers and woodsmen (which is what daddy's profession was, as he was a stumper). Daddy and 3 of his brothers all came here to Florida at the same time, along with my grandparents (Sumralls). But, much of their family stayed there is MS. You may know Aunt Christine McKee.

RE: Andrew Snelgrove
Thank you for updating daddy's information.
And, thank you for letting me know about our
grandparents. That makes us far off kin, doesn't it?
It has become important to me to find out who all of my kin people are, especially since mama and daddy have both passed away. Do you live in Mississippi where all their family was from?

I was doing some ancestry work on James Thomas Downey # 358241217 and also working on State Line Cemetery ,Clark County, Ms. I came across a stone for Mattie Downey # 72174684 wife of J T Downey. When I looked up James Thomas Downey I saw his wife was buried in a different State Line Cemetery, Greene Co, Ms. No other Downeys are buried there. I believe the one named Mattie in State LIne in Clarke County is his wife and has been listed as Mattie on her stone. I also got information from census records where she was called Mattie.

Not sure you would be interested in this infor but I decided to pass it on. I have been to this cemetery and my husband and I took pictures of all graves here and placed this cemetery on find a grave.

I just realized that dates I left regarding date of birth are "backwards." Please use 1914 as date of birth as reflected on her grave stone. I am sorry for this mistake on my part.

This is my Aunt Myrtle, daughter of my grandmother Alice Wade Meadows Sumrall. Old manual records researched by a cousin shows her birthday as January 31, 1914. The date on her gravestone is 1915 so her children must have had an official birth certificate. I thought perhaps you would want to add the birthday as reflected on her gravestone. Thank you so much for all you do with Find A Grave. I just recently got into it and have found numerous information about my family.

Many Thanks
I appreciate the edits on Katie Smith. She has been on my radar for a while and I finally made the trip to Smith County to confirm. Unfortunately whoever ordered her marker missed her birth by a few years which caused the confusion. It's not the first or last in the family tree that it was a little off but it is nice to know that it is her.

Again many thanks!!
