Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on family research for many years, and I've visited cemeteries looking for my family and my husband's family. I have posted all the related graves and photos and added them to virtual cemeteries. The vast majority of memorials I've added are for people not related to either of us.

I enjoy photographing and documenting cemeteries, and I hope some of the memorials I add will help others with their family research.

Over the past few years, I have worked on documenting cemeteries in Dakota County, Minnesota, as well as adding photos to existing memorials.

I am also working on adding memorials for all the cemeteries and graves listed in 'Footprints in Time Tombstone Inscriptions in Tate County, Mississippi'. This book contains information for a lot of abandoned cemeteries, so I hope it will help someone looking for information on an ancestor.

If you have corrections for any of the memorials I've added, please use the Edit button on the memorial to submit your information. If you have questions, feel free to send me an email or leave a message.

RE: C. P. Varner questions
Thanks for your very quick response. I will try to find additional information before submitting edits to any of the memorials involved.

C. P. Varner questions
The notes from the Tate County History shown on Sgt. Claude Perry Varner's memorial contradict information on the death certificate of his son Claude Perry Varner, Jr. as shown on his memorial. The death certificate indicates that Julia, rather than Bettie, was Claude Jr's mother. This brings into question the date of first wife Bettie Varner's death and the date of Sgt. Claude Perry Varner's second marriage.

Because the death certificate was prepared by Dr. Claude Ferrell Varner, a son of Claude Perry Varner, Jr. and a grandson of Sgt. Claude Perry Varner I believe that I would trust it over the county history, unless you have better information from another source.

BTW: I recently added the nickname "Capel" to Sgt. Claude Perry Varner's memorial. All of his Civil War records use simply "C.P.Varner", But my friend Mac Wyckoff, retired NPS Historian and author of the history of the 3rd SC Volunteers tells me that he has information that C.P.Varner used both "Cape" and Capel" as nicknames. My wife is descended from one of Capel's sons, the Rev. Carroll Varner, and her family has always referred to him as Capel Perry Varner.

All the Simpsons
I can't thank you enough for transferring all those Simpson (and related) kith & kin to me.

In front of me I have 20 years of correspondence from the Howland siblings (Simpson descendants) to my Uncle. Tidbits of information from so long ago, about all the folks you just so kindly put in my care. After first reading them I felt/still feel such a connection to these Waterford/Greenvale/ Red Rose Cemetery folks and am happy to keep their memorials cared for and together.

The Simpson, Dodds, Howland families were extremely close and loving when they were together or apart. Now they are together forever, and I hope any descendants in the future can find them and appreciate and honor the family ties as we all do.
They are also now in a Virtual Cemetery on my profile page, along with more distant extended family as well, in- 'The Desc. of John1 Simpson and Margaret Johnstone'.

Again, thank you so very much. Rebecca

William "Morgan" Ross, Greenleaf
Y'all, his name was William Marion Ross, not "Morgan" ....was married to my mother's sister Nancy Freeman, who after his death subsequently married a Brumley and then lastly, an Edwards. She died earlier this year and was also interred at Greenleaf in Tate County, Miss.
