Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy visiting cemeteries, taking photos of the gravestones and statuary. I was so excited when I discovered the FIND A GRAVE website because I finally have a place to use the information I have been gathering.
My special interests are my ancestors' families: McCorkle, Brandon, Locke, McLeod, Coleman, Yeomans/Youmans, Rountree, Gardner, Webb, Moore, Brashear, Pitts, Hall, Forney, Hoke, Bergner, Balfour, Abernethy, Givhan, Johnson, Mobberley, Potts, Pegram, Bumpass, Matthews, Perry, Coats, Jenkins, Dorsey, Pope, Chapman, Dixon, Porter, Sandifer, Dickinson, Loughlin, Wallette, etc.
Recently I have begun research of my husband's family and am interested in the Landrum, Carter, Pruitt, Redmond, Music, Wilkie and King families.
My profile photo is of the real "Little Marie." She was Marie Chapman Senyard, daughter of Mary Ethel Brashear and Dr. Oscar Chapman, sister of Elmo Mobley Chapman, and wife of Faye Senyard. She was my grandmother Alice McCorkle Coleman's first cousin, and, though I never knew her personally, I know that she, like many other members of our family, was very interested in preserving her family's history and heritage, as I am. I use her picture to honor her. This picture is courtesy of Moses M. Coleman, Jr., my father.
Much of the personal family info that I have been able to add to my family memorials comes from the book "Granny Bess" which contains historical info, letters, newspaper articles, and photos of the McCorkle, Brashear, Moore, Webb, Dorsey, Johnson and related families.
Two other excellent sources of information for Moore family research are the book "Rodeham Moore of Patrick County, Va - His Descendants and Known Kin" by Merle Moore, and The Association For The Descendants of Rodeham Moore. The Association is a national organization and has an internet web site.

RE: Mary Williams in Jacksonville City Cemetery...
THE STORY ABOUT the young woman whose throat was slashed as she opened the door one night should be attached to Laura Williams Murray #13866981.

Thank You,

Mary Williams in Jacksonville City Cemetery...
Thanks. I am trying to find what I did send you... Is this the story about a man cutting LAURA's throat one night when she opened the door? That Laura was Mary Wilkerson Williams' daughter. Did I want it under her mother...? No, not really. Sorry.

Episcopal Church Cemetery, Oak Ridge, LA
Little Marie, I am doing research on a number of families who are buried in Oak Ridge and have noticed that there are a number of duplicates which were posted by "Bonnie Sisson Manning (#47311181)". It sure would be nice if the two of you could get together and have just one listing.

RE: Josephine Lay
My pleasure! While I was there, I made photos of all the graves in the LAY family plot and added those to existing memorials and also added some new memorials. Kind regards, Nancy

RE: Clara H Reeves
Hello and thank you for being thorough and accurate in your reporting of the Clara H. Reeves genealogical information. Milton and "Clara" Reeves had a son Woodie Bertrand Reeves. Woodie's death certificate shows birth father, Milton Stephen Reeves and mother's maiden name as "Clara" Hollis. "Clara" Hollis shows up on the 1900 US Census in Perry County, MS, the daughter of John and Edna Hollis. "Clara" Hollis also shows up on the 1910 US Census in Hattiesburg, MS as the daughter of John and Edna Hollis. Claranell Isora Hollis married Milton Stephen Reeves in Hattiesburg, Ms. Thus..... "Clara" H. Reeves. The 1920 US Census indicates Milton and "Clara" Reeves were living in Demopolis, Marengo County, Alabama, with their two children; Woodie and Nanon. Please let me know if you should need further documentation. Thank you and best regards, Steve.
