Bio Photo I'm fairly new to genealogy and researching, but the bug has bitten hard.

Any photos that I have posted, feel free to copy for your use. When I take a photo, my hope is that it will be useful to researchers, be appreciated by survivors, and enjoyed by them all.

Early Pope Laws -Mem #13934123
If you would like to, you could also transfer this to me and I will connect him to his mother, Rebecca Hendricks Laws' Memorial. Thanks for all your help.

RE: Memorial # 12916311
No, I only have found the dates of their deaths and knew they were also in or from Lowndes County. Since Rebeecca Hendricks Laws was buried there, I had only assumed those who died in the next few years after her death would have been buried there also.

Just also sent you another message before reading this message

Memorial # 12916311
Dixie, Thanks for maintaining the memorial for Rebecca Hendricks Laws (my 3rd g grandmother). Are you able to research for other members of her family at Friendship Cemetery in Columbus, MS?
Her husband, Lott W Laws about 1812-1863
Hers sons, Gustavus T Laws (my 2nd g grandfather) about 1836 - 1865. His wife, Anna King Laws is probably not buried there.
Lott W Laws, Jr about 1840 - 21 Nov 1862
Hector Laws about 1848 - 1862
Dabney Lipscomb Laws about 1855 - after 1867 ?
Her daughter, Rebecca Jane Laws about 1853 - 1866 ?
Her father, Gustavus Hendricks, Jr - about 1758 - 16 Jul 1832
Her mother, Elizabeth Keeling Hendricks Duncan about 1758 - about 1865
I know this is a long list, but thought I would list everyone that might be there.

RE: 13093810 George S Fisher
could this George S. Fisher you are maintaining be George S. Fisher from the 10th MS of the Lowndes Southrons (old company d, new company e when reorganized).

Didn't know if you were kin.

Kirk H. Wakefield, Sr.
RE: Wakefield death notice
Thanks, Dixie.

Again, I do not see mention of my Great Grandfather James Martin Wakefield, only Philander Hezekiah. He is in Waco, Texas at this time and will die in 1919. James would be 14 years older than Charles, so I am not sure about the age spread.

Thank you for your response. My great aunt was Sarah D. Neilson, and she and her half sister, Anne Neilson ran Belmont Plantation. Sarah Neilson also worked for 40 years at the woman's college as secretary to the dean. I am headed out today to visit Vaughn Cemetery and Friendship Cemetery to see what I can find. Harold Wright, who now lives in Alabama, has written extensively about the Neilsons, as he grew up on the farm next to Belmont and apparently knew my Aunt Sarah well. I am only here for the week, but will dig into any of the resources that I can. So interesting that you may have had a relative that worked at Belmont! I have made contact with the current owners and hope to meet them this week and see the plantation first hand. My mother spent a good deal of time there in her youth, and I have pictures of the home and some of the share croppers who worked the land. Many thanks.
