William T Halbert
Hi Dixie, I am trying to find information on William Halbert. I just found out he was married to my mother at the time of his death. I'll take anything.

Here is another you may find interesting regarding another relative of ours, Mary Ann Gammill Lavender, who is also buried in Beersheba. You might want to place it in her Findagrave listing.

"Aunt Jennie McLeod told me that when her great-grandmother died they planned to take her back [to Mantua] to be buried by her husband; however, the winter weather was so severe and their only transportation would be by wagon, and the ground was frozen for some depth. Because of this, she was buried close to John Wilson's home. At the time she died there was only one cemetery close to the family, Beersheba Church in Lowndes County, MS and her grave is located here. Sometime during the 1960s vandals went into Beersheba and broke and disfigured many of the monuments, including Mary Ann's."

RE: Nelson Francis Passino #13334479
Hello, again, Dixie...would you consider transferring Nelson Passino to my care? I have been hoping to find and make contact with some of his descendants but have had no luck thus far. However, this family was so difficult to find and then track I would like to try and keep all the links "in the family" so to speak. Nelson was the eldest brother of one of my paternal gr-grandfathers (George Gilbert Passino) and thus would be my gr-grand uncle. Thank you for your time and assistance.
