Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Shannon Gorman. I was a "Navy Brat". My dad graduated from Ole Miss and went into the Navy when he found out I was on the way. I married into the Navy, so I spent the first 40 years of my life moving from duty station to duty station. My summers were spent with my grandparents in Gulfport and Columbia, Mississippi. Home to me is Mississippi.

I am the publisher of the website and the Mostly Mississippi database, with over 68,000 files. This database is free and can be found at

I have a Masters Degree in Business Education and have taught in high schools and junior colleges. For genealogy education I completed the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Consultant Genealogist course, and have 17 proven American Revolutionary War Patriot Ancestors, with others in process. I have helped 15 other people join DAR by working on their lineage with them. I have completed the BYU South Eastern United States genealogy course, and am currently enrolled in second course.

I have photographed over 5000 funeral home records. I published the Colonial Funeral Home Records 1913-1915, and have two more sets of funeral home records in the publishing process. The first volume can be found in the DAR Library in Washington, DC. If you have guestions about the Colonial Funeral Home Records, ask them. I am not doing this to make money. There is no charge for communicating with me!

I have been photographing tombstones for longer than Find a Grave has existed, but do not intend to compete with, or duplicate work other people are now doing or have done. I am happy so many people are participating in documenting cemeteries.

I do not want to manage any more memorials. I ask questions about some of them, but that does not mean I want to manage them, it only means I had a guestion. Thank you in advance for not making me the manager of any memorial unless I expressly asked to manage it. I consider it a big responsiblity to manage the memorials and it is very time consuming to get them right. I am not someone who wants to have the most memorials entered, I want to be the person who is willing to document and source and provide correct lineage information on the memorials I manage.

Find A Grave Memorial# 57204801
In re your posting: Isabella Rawls was daughter of Bourbon Henry Rawls and wife Mary Lula Mooney. Per grandaughter Dimple Rawls Willoughby. Bourbon Henry Rawls was married more than once.
I would like to contact Dimple if possible. I am a Benjamin Franklin RAWLES III and Charity Pamilia DUCKWORTH who is listed as parents of Isabella on findagrave to see we can get this corrected?
Martha Rader - thanks

Ralph Albritton
Yes, I am a direct descendant of his. I also have much info. Do you have Bobby Allbritten's CD? In 2007, there were not the options for fuller memorial information as there are today. I could update it, I guess. I wish to keep management as he is my relative as stated.

Warren Faulkner
Hi, Marion, I have been trying to find out more about Warren's daughter, Rhoda. She was my husband's g-grandmother. She was married to Andrew 'Doc' Bullard and they had two sons, Robert Warren & John. After they divorced, she moved back with Warren & his wife. Rhoda died when the boys were six & three. Warren raised them. I have not found any records to show were Rhoda died & may be buried. Any information you may have would be great! Thanks, Shari B
