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........

Let me think on this and get back with you .
|William Trussell||James Trussell Cemetery|
Hi Pam and Teresa
I am the Great Great Grandson of James Trussell and have been working on my fatherís family tree now for over 5 years. My brother and I recently went to the James Trussell Cemetery and upgraded the site by adding post and placing a sign around the cemetery. We also found the missing pieces of the headstone for James and cemented the headstone back together. We found four other unmarked graves in the cemetery which we think are graves of slaves that live and worked on his 300 area farm.
Go to the John S. Trussell family tree and you will find much more information about this man and his children. There are pictures of the cemetery and the headstones on his profile page. I hope this information will help those who are doing research on this man and his family. Thanks for your part in the research as well.

Two wishes fulfilled in the same week! Thank you for the gravestone photograph. I can see its going to be a Happy New Year.
|Walter D Golladay||J. T. James|
Thank you very much for taking the three wonderful gravestone photographs of J.T.'s gravesite. After 2 years of waiting, my wishes have been partially fulfilled. Pearl James Golliday is also on my wish list for this same cemetery. Again, thank you, and Merry Christmas.
|Shirley Kimbrell Williford||RE: Bellefontaine Cemetery|
I have never been there and I live in MO, so can't personally check it out.
If you go to 'Cemetery Lookup' on the Findagrave website and click on 'Edit Lat/Lon' it should show you a map of the location.
