Emma Lou, I would like to make two changes on the memorial for Lucy A. Goodin. Her number is 5613586 in the Clay Mem. Cem. in Cuba AL. I would like to change the heading to "Lucy Elizabeth (Andrews) Toney Goodin". I would also like to add that she married William Washington Toney on 30 January 1851 in Marion Co., MS. Thank you for your help. She was my gr. grandmother.

Pine Hill Cemetery/Clarke county
I took a photo of #71726474 and posted it today.
I noticed on the memorial the death date was unknown; the photo shows the death date.
I though you might like to adjust the memorial date.

RE: Bethel Methodist church Cemetery
Hi Emma,
It's on New Lincoln Rd (which I think is County Road 371). As you travel south from I-20 on Hwy 77 towards Talladega, you will turn right onto New Lincoln Rd (I think it's the first turn past Idalia Rd). There is a small sign on Hwy 77 for Limbaugh Chapel church. New Lincoln Rd runs parallel to Hwy 77. On New Lincoln Rd, you will pass the Limbaugh Chapel church and cemetery on your right. You will continue heading south on New Lincoln Rd and you should see Bethel Cemetery on your right before New Lincoln Rd dead ends into Stemley Bridge Road. I think the Bethel Methodist Church in on Stemley Bridge Road. Hope this helps.

RE: George M. Helm(s)
Yes. However, his last name was Shows, not Showers. It's misspelled in George's 1934 obituary. I just added a correction. The daughter was Rose Mary. Her memorial is # 110384740. I will send its contributor her obituary (below) which I found and transcribed, and updates for her name, vitals and a link to her father.

JACKSON Funeral services for Mrs. W.F. (Rosemary) Shows will be conducted Tuesday at 10 a.m. from the Baldwin Funeral Home, 5235 Robinson Rd. in Jackson. A graveside service will be held Tuesday at 3 p.m. in Floral Hills Memorial Gardens at Gulfport.

Mrs. Shows, a former resident of Gulfport, died Saturday in Jackson. She had resided with her daughter, Mrs. D. L. (Evelyn) Fortenberry of Jackson and was a member of the Van Winkle Baptist Church in Jackson.

In addition to her daughter, she is survived by two other daughters, Mrs. Bill (Frances) Lowe of Laurens, S.C., and Mrs. Arthur McCaleb of Biloxi; five sons, Marcus Shows of Albuquerque, N.M., Weldon Shows of Atlanta, Ga., Hulon Shows of Sacramento, Calif., George Shows of La Porte, Tex., and Harvey Shows of Gretna, La.; one brother, Ray Helms of Florence, Miss.; three sisters, Mrs. Ruth Lewis of McComb, Mrs. Ester Albrooke of Meridian and Mrs. Mary Weustney of Columbus, Miss.; 23 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.

Lang Funeral Home in Gulfport is in charge of local arrangements.
