Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in cemetery research since 2004, concentrating on old sites in Claiborne County, Mississippi. I love the peace and solitude that comes with surveying an old site and discovering whose name will be on the next stone. I have been very fortunate in getting the cooperation of hunters and land owners in gaining access to so many of the sites in the county, and my good fortune has resulted in a couple of published books, namely, Carved in Stone: Cemeteries of Claiborne County, Mississippi, and Whispers in the Cedars: Port Gibson, Mississippi's Wintergreen Cemetery.
I get a thrill out of being able to put people in touch with their long-lost ancestors and will always be happy to transfer any memorials to their relatives or other loved ones. And despite my e-mail address, I do NOT dig up bones!

RE: Memorial for John Herman Schuman
My Aunt was Elizabeth Schuman. She married my Dad's brother Charles Albert Bragg. They are both buried in Metarie, La.

I will take them if you want to give them up.

RE: Sgt James E. Hill
SO MANY graves, it is just hard to believe, and this cemetery is just one of many. I am in a great place to be able to provide Americans a glimpse of the final resting place for TOO many soldiers that simply never made it home; giving the ultimate sacrifice to their country.

I see Natalie transferred this to you. I am wondering if you know more about her. I hv traced her paper trail a good bit. Suspecting she is my gr gr gr grandfather's sister but nothing concrete to tie it. She has a probate file in Claiborne County that I was able to look at. Hey, your Carved in Stone book is beautiful. Much of my family is in it. Thank you for your passionate devotion. Peggy Sue
