|Bio and Links|
I had decided to undertake trying to photograph every tombstone that i could find or know about in the Chickasaw Co., Mississippi area. Now that is about out of the question as i can not get out and photograph for very long anymore.|
If you see a relative that you want to add something to, just click on the edit button at the top right and i will add it. If you want ownership of the person, email with your ID number and i will transfer the person over to you. All i am looking to do is preserve the history of tombstones in Chickasaw Co., Mississippi. Some of them are rapidly fading away.
UPDATE:June 16, 2012 well after about 4 years of photographing stones, we had almost got it done. Now my health is not allowing me to get back out right now, so i have picked up retyping obits from old newspapers. i started in 2008 and have been going backwards. I am now on the year 1958. i will continue to go until have done all the books that i can get a hold of.
Update again: April 11, 2013: Well i am finished with retyping obits out of the Times Post, in Houston, Miss. I started getting the obit out of the 2008 papers and went all the way back to the year 1930. They did not have any of the papers before 1930. I am trying now to link people in Chickasaw county by using Census records that i can find online. I will do this until i can go no further. My goal is to have as many as i can from Chickasaw county linked where i can link them.

I just wanted to thank you for getting the photo of my ggg Grandfather's headstone (#60946612). I have been to visit his gravesite in the cemetery and meaning to do a rubbing of the worn stone, but never got around to it since I'm far away.
I was so pleasantly surprised to see your photo and the chalk rubbing, which shows the engraving very nicely!
Well, thanks very much again for all your efforts....you have done so much with all your transcriptions and photos!

Thank you for the photo of Rebecca's marker (#30654518). Would it be OK with you if I post your photo, with credit, to my Ancestry.com family tree? (It, and other photos of yours I may come across as I continue to research this family.)

I welcome all information to make the memorial more complete. If you ever run across a friend or relative that I have please don't hesitate to ask for a transfer.

Barbara, thank you so much for all the family links you've been sending. I haven't acknowledged all of them individually, but I'm very appreciative of each and every one. Also, thank you for all the hard and time consuming work you do for Find A Grave.
I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you have done. I found one branch of my ancestors here and Bless you for all you have done.
