Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, Teresa and I have been friends for years but only in the last couple of years did we discover our "unnatural" obsession with cemeteries. Our families think we are nuts and maybe we are but we LOVE being able to help people connect with their loved ones who have passed on. We think that Find A Grave is one of, if not THE best site for family researchers. Each memorial, if you are lucky, has the deceased name, birth and death dates, place of bith and death, place of burial, parents, children, siblings, and can help complete someones family tree. It helps loved ones who live thousands of miles away to be able to see the headstone and/or final resting place of their ancestors. We have made it our goal to find, document and photograph each and every cemetery in Choctaw Co. MS. (where we live), the ones that are known and especially the ones that are abandoned and forgotten. It doesn't matter how far back in the woods we have to hike, nor the millions of virgin thorns we seem to attract, all the mud, water, chiggers, snakes, rain, snow, sleet or hail.......ok maybe not so much the last five things. We are dedicated to our "passion" and plan to venture out to other counties that need our attention. God Bless all of our fellow "Find A Gravers" for all that you are doing for Find A Grave.

Note: In light of some "negative" messages we have received lately I would like to make something clear.............Teresa and I are NOT in this for the number or memorials added, or the number of memorials managed, or the number of photo requests fulfilled or the number of photos we take. We are also NOT in this for the credit or the recognition. We are in this simply and more importantly to help people who are doing their family history, to find their ancestors to help complete their family tree for themselves and their future family. We are also in this to make sure that people who have passed on have something to show they were here, their life was important and they are remembered..........When we post a memorial or a photo we go to the cemetery they are listed in and make POSITIVELY SURE they are where they are listed. So many times we have photographed someone's headstone only to find out they are listed in the wrong cemetery. If someone lives out of town, state, or even the country and go to the cemetery that their loved one's are listed in, only to be disappointed because they can't find their stone anywhere. We have also noticed that sometimes even the obituary is wrong, so we never list someone until we have gone to the cemetery and checked it out for ourselves. We take a lot of pride in what we are doing and it is important to us that we do it right. When we get an e-mail or message of thanks it makes all our hard, but very rewarding work, worth it........

RE: Carter Graveyard
From the intersection of highways 25 and 15 south on the bypass, turn south on 25 and go 10.8 miles and turn right on Bates Road. Cemetery is located about a 1/4 mile from the turn off on the right. The property was fenced, owned, and maintained by a Mr. Carter in 1993.

RE: Duplicates in Dry Bayou
I went through the list of names for Dry Bayou and removed all of them I posted that showed a duplicate. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Do you happen to know anything about the Poor Farm Cemetery also called St John's Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery. It was located on West of Hayti on Hwy. 84 and County Road B. where the Special School is now located. I can find no one who can tell me where it was moved to. I have four requests for pictures of graves for there. They are Lizzie Calvert 1879-1931, Ike Davis 6 May 1967 age 83 yrs. old, Laura Bell 22 Dec. 1960 age 72 yrs. and Joe Nathan Ellis 11 March 1906-18 June 1969.
