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.

I'm sorry I meant to type we span 211 years, not 2011 years, duh. Thanks!

Thank you so much for the photos of my Great Grandfather James Joseph McIntire's Gravestone. It probably sounds funny for this to be 2014 and James Joseph McIntire was born in 1803 and is my Great Grandfather, but he came from Ireland at 8 years old and married a 20 year old when he was 60 and had 5 sons, my Grandfather Joseph Hiram McIntire, buried in Old Salem Cemtery in Chester, MS was born in 1882, the 5th of his 5 sons. So we span 2011 years here. It's pretty amazing.

Just wanted to thank you SO MUCH for the photos and all your hard work. It's a calling you have I think. I live in Michigan, and want to go back to that area so much, as all my ancestors are buried there. We visited often when I was a child. I will go back some day.

I wondered if you know the name of this church by the Blythe Creek Cemetery. Also do you know where I might find the records of this cemetery?
