I do not have any information on individuals represented by many of the pictures I post. If anyone has additional information that they wish me to include on a posting, I would gladly do this if you would request the addition using the edit function. I do not post obits to my memorials but I extract from them and post information to the memorial.

If you want to use my pictures for personal purposes, feel free to do so. I try to post the information on the marker and not the complete grave site or surrondings.

For requests for additions or corrections to a memorial, please send request from the memorial so that I have links to it in the email. Also requests for transfers should be sent from the memorial. I DO NOT ANSWER REQUESTS THAT ARE POSTED AS MESSAGES ON MY PROFILE. Thank you very much.

Thank you for adding that he died in Vietnam. So that it will not be noted twice, I have now omitted that information from the flag memento I left on his memorial.

This man is listed at Cedar Grove Cemetery and Blackburn Cemetery. I think they are one and the same cemetery. I am trying to prove it so we can have Find A Grave combine the two cemetries into one. Are you still taking tombsone pictures in the area? I think we could prove it if we find all those Blackburn people at Cedar Grove Cemetery.
There are only a few people listed at Blackburn Cemetery. Let's see how many of them we can find at Cedar Grove Cemetery. Okay?

Let me know if you can take on this project.

Thanks in advance,

Daisy Fortenberry and William Jones
When you get a chance please email me. Below is some of the info I have which is not a complete list but rather more for information purposes. My email address is

Daisy Fortenberry married William James Jones and they had a daughter named Henrietta Jones who was born Dec 8, 1903 and her mother, Daisy, died Mar 5, 1905. Soon after the death of Daisy, William and Henrietta moved to Escambia County, Florida (around the Pensacola area) where he met and married Sallie (Sally) Boyington Grimes who had two sons (Robert Eli Grimes and Wilburn Miles Grimes Sr). In 1906 (I believe), Sallie and William were married and on May 21, 1909 they had a son named Charles Moreno Jones Sr (my father). They lived between Escambia County, FLorida and Baldwin County, Alabama (mostly Escambia County, Florida).

Henrietta went on to marry Osmond (Ossy) Givens. If you look at memorial #17680502, this is Henrietta Jones Givens, daughter of William JOnes and Daisy Fortenberry Jones. She went by Etta to her close family and friends.

I have been trying to find more information as to where William James Jones came from, how he came to Mississippi and then why he moved to Florida. I think my dad said there is a part of Mississippi called Jones that is named after his dads side of the family. However, I am unable to find a death, birth, or marriage cert for William. I am hoping someone can help me with this. If there is anyone in Mississippi that could find an old copy of the marriage cert of Daisy and William and can email it to me, that would be soooo much appreciated as it will add to my documentation and hopefully help answer questions.

I look to hear from you soon and if you need more information please let me know,.

Thanks, Etta

Daisy Fortenberry Jones
Im so glad you added Mrs Daisy Fortenberry Jones. If you could contact me Id appreciate it. Since youre a Fortenberry Im wondering if you have information on her husband? I have his name, the name of the daughter they had together, where him and their daughter moved to, who their daughter married along with their kids and so forth. If youre interested and would like to link her daughter along with her son in law and their kids Id be more then willing to help you in obtaining the information on these people.
