William Sims Foree 146229383
I am wondering about the name "Sims" in William's name and his wife, Texanar "Sims" Foree 38107003? Can you shed any light on this? Thank you.

Emily L. Harris ( Sims) Wykes
Do you have any record of Emily's other Sims' children...Ophilia, William David, Mary Olivia Mollie or Molly? If you are not related to Emily would you consider transfer her memorial to me?
Her father David Alexander Harris is my 2nd great Grandfather.

Lisbon Cemetery
The gate in your photo at the Lisbon Cemetery was recently removed. It will be replaced later this year with the name in a steel arch over the entrance. There is also a new steel fence along the front and is surrounded on the other three sides with a black chain link fence. New landscaping and a new concrete paved parking area has been added. All this by a construction company doing urban renewal between the cemetery and Lancaster Road.

I don't know where Henry H Smedley's dad is buried. If the Smedleys are in your family tree, I am happy to transfer the record to you.

RE: Henry H Smedley
The information on Henry Harrison Smedley came from a book written about the Confederates buried at Elmwood.

Very good book called, "Confederates of Elmwood: A Compilation of Information Concerning Confederate Soldiers and Veterans Buried at Elmwood Cemetery, Memphis, Tennessee" by John W. Cothern. You can buy it at Amazon or Family Roots Publishing. It's about $30 and worth every bit of it, as many of these graves are only marked with concrete posts. Elmwood's office has a plat that can identify the men buried in the graves unmarked with proper gravestones.

I found Elmwood when I finally determined it was where my 3rd great grandfather was buried.

On my Parrishes, I have tracked them back to Thomas Eldridge Parrish, born 9 Jan 1744 in Charles City, Goochland Co., VA. I don't know if our Parrishes intersect...
