|Bio and Links|
|My husband and I have always lived in Union Co., MS. Most of our ancestors are buried within 5-15 miles of where we live on the Tippah-Union County line in Cotton Plant, MS.|
I taught second grade in the New Albany Public School system for 32 years, until my retirement in 2003. I have 2 married daughters and 5 beautiful little granddaughters. I love to sew, read, travel and do family research.
My interest in genealogy began with a 6th grade assignment to do a family tree. My great-grandmother Foley, who lived to be 101, answered many questions about my ancestors to help with the assignment. She also had many old photos of family members. I have taken those old photos and many others and made a pictoral family tree album for myself and each daughter. I am now in the process of photographing family gravestones and creating an album of all of them by family.

Sandra, thank you so very much for getting the photos of John and Martha's headstone. It's a great picture. I appreciate you taking the time to do this for me!
|Sheila Richey Smith||James Clay Rakestraw|
Thanks for taking the photo of this gravestone too. Your help is greatly appreciated.
|Sheila Richey Smith||Annie Rakestraw|
Thank you so much for the photo of the gravestone.
|Sue Lee Johnson||RE: Strother Lee|
Sandra, I saw that you had posted all the photos, but I didn't know if they were recent or were already there. Thank you so much!! Since Mr Rakestraw, who created the memorial pages, is deceased I wish that Find A Grave would transfer all of these to me. There is so much information to be added and unless Find a Grave will add it for me, the memorial pages will be incomplete with no links to other family members. I will send them all of the updates and maybe they will just go ahead and transfer them to me. Granville Lee is the husband of my 2nd great aunt, Martha Spencer Lee. Martha is the sister of my 2nd great grandmother, Frances Emily Spencer.
|Sue Lee Johnson||Strother Lee|
Sandra, thank you so much for the photo of Strother Lee's gravestone. I appreciate your time it took to do this.
|Rita & Lee Gordon||Sallie Ruth Gordon|
Thanks for the photo
|Doris J Eaton||I saw belatedly you did tell the correct name|
Again, thanks so much for taking this photo for me. I've long wanted to have a photo for my records.

|Doris J Eaton||Thank you for photos!!|
Thank you so much for photgraphing the gravestone for my great great grandfather's grave. I have one more favor. Take a look at the stone with his name. I think it's supposed to be J G Stewart since his obituary is as stated in a church record in South Carolina.
Died in Tippah Co., Miss. on the 16th of August, James G. Stewart, Esq. in the 48th year of his age. The deceased was a native of Anderson District, S. C., and was, if we are not mistaken, the youngest son of the "patriarch-elder," to whom allusion was made in a former number of the Telescope by J. S. P. [p.55] He had gone to explore Drew Co., Ark, where he was attacked by a bilious fever which terminated his earthly existence in three days after he reached home.
I do realize these stones can really be difficult to read, since some C's look much like a G. I'm wondering if you can tell from your photo.
Your work on findagrave.com is soooo appreciated!!

|Holley Izard||RE: Toliver|
Did the ones you found have a cemetery record or tombstone?
The confusion between him and his son are why I went ahead and ordered the microfilm with the Probate records. I'll see about sending those documents. I've been juggling research on several people and had set this aside.
|Holley Izard||T.H. Grubbs will|
I just ordered the microfilm based on the Will Index I found. Will let you know what I find.
