Holly Springs, Miss.
Feb. 9, 1923

Early in the morn of January 12, 1923, the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Woods of Marianna and carried back the spirit of their beautiful infant daughter, Margery. On the evening of the 12th the little body was laid to rest in the Grub Hill Cemetery, the funeral services being conducted by Rev. E. L. Wesson. The little darling had been ill with pneumonia for many weeks. All was done loving hands could do, but of no avail. She was too pure and sweet for this sinful world, so God took her back to live with him. She was just beginning to be winsome and sweet, Oh! how the dear mother misses the dear little prattle and the beautiful smile.

We loved her, yes, we loved her,
But Jesus loved her more,
And he has sweetly called her,
To yonder shining shore.
The golden gates were opened,
A gentle voice said "come",
And with farewells unspoken,
She calmly entered home.

"Henderson Newell" Plantation
Dear Friend:

I am an academic music historian livng in Florida. I am working trying to find the location of the what might be called the "Henderson Newell plantation," in the Red Banks area of Mississippi. I noticed that on find a grave you posted information on one William Henderson Newell from that area who might have been the owner of said plantation.

I am working on the life of Gus Cannon, an African American banjoist who made more than 34 recordings between 1927 and 1930 and then made an album in 1963 who said that he was born on that plantation in September 1883.

We historians love the geneology and find a grave people because you have made many sources of research in all fields much more easily accessible. And I must say, that learning to use this information for my music history research has enabled me to learn new things about my own family,

Please email me about this matter at

Perry Ancestor
Hi Sarah!

I found you through John Lafayette Perry's grave site page. You posted a photo of him and his wife Martha Ann. Their son Samuel Elmer Perry is my great-grandfather - father of Budo Glenn Perry my grandfather. I would LOVE more information about this side of the family if you have any. Photos would be wonderful too if you don't mind sharing. So are we related??

RE: Glover Avent Family Cemetery
Attempted to locate Cemetery. Did not find. May try again but think I will need to wait till late fall early winter after the underbrush has died back and leaves have fallen so more sunlight can get down to the ground. If no one fulfills the request by then drop me a note to remind me to go look again.

Glover Avent Family Cemetery
You requested photos for Glover Avent Family Cemetery. Looks like it is on private land. If I contact landowner to get permission to go on land would like to be able to explain relationship of person looking for gravesite. Could you advise on your relationship with Glover Avent?

Hatcher in Morgan Cemetery
Sarah, -sorry for the condition of the photo's but it was so hard to even make some of the inscription out even in person. If you click on the photo itself, the caption contains the inscriptions that were readable and how it connected to Ora Hatcher. It is sad that the cemetery overall has not been maintained. But I hope this has helped, mam... - Jerry

Ada/Samuel Williamson
Hi...well, this is a new on for me. I found their plot, but the stones have been overtaken by a VERY thick privet bush. It was so dense I really couldn't get a photo of Ada's stone and only a partial for Samuel. When you walk by the bush there is no clue that there are two stones at it's base. Not sure the cemetery folks even know that these stone are there. I snapped as good'a pic of Samuel's stne as I could and posted a pic of the bush for Ada. Please feel free to delete them if you like. I also sent you an Edit for their plot location. Sorry.

RE: Dicey Springfield memorial page
Hi: I am related to the Langstons through my fifth great grandfather Rev. Nathan Langston, who was a double first cousin to Dicey Langston Springfield. Nathan's father was Absalom Langston, a soldier in the British Army in the French and Indian War, the brother of Solomon Langston, Dicey's father. Both men married women related to the Bennetts, doubling the relation. I am not descended from the Sprinfields though. Rev. Langston married Catherine Smith, and their daughter Martha married William Groves Yarbrough, son of Revoluionary soldier James Yarbrough, who was killed in the Creek Indian Massacre of 1792 in Franklin County, Georgia, then on the border of the Cherokee Nation. James' widow brought her children back to Union/Cross Keys, South Carolina where Groves grew into manhood then married Martha Langston. Once hostilities with the Indians subsided, the couple went back across the Tugaloo River into northeast Georgia and reclaimed the land, near Currahee Mountain where my grandmother grew up.

I am honored to be related to Dicey Langston Springfield through Rev. Nathan Langston.
