Bio and Links
Bio Photo Daughter of Odis Clarence Burt and Ada Kate
Fitzgerald Burt, both of whom were born in Clarke County, MS. I was born in Laurel, Jones County, MS. Graduated from Meridian, MS High School in 1947. Married in 1949 to Jesse Winston (Buddy) Price. We had 62 wonderful years together.
I lived in Toomsuba, MS, his family's home place, for 62 years. Now living in Sheridan, WY.
I am an avid genealogist and love to help others.
I recently "inherited" a large number of memorials
from a contributor who wanted to "retire".
I will gladly transfer management of any memorials
to kin.

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.

RE: George M. Helm(s)
I've studied the records and have concluded that you are correct that they are indeed the same person. I've updated my memorial for him substantially, adding his original obituary, a link to his daughter buried in Hollywood Cemetery, census records, etc. The death date you have for him, however, is incorrect. I note that no dates are on his grave marker. My suggestion would be for you to revise the death date on the memorial you maintain so that the two can be merged.

Millard Randolph Allen
Emma - Thank you so much for putting memorial together on Find A Grave for "Randy". We are his uncle and aunt. We visited Toomsuba Cemetery end of October last year and left flowers in rememberence of other Allen family members. Never thought at that time Randy would be with his dad, mother, 2 sisters and a brother-in-law just 3 months later.
Warm regards,
Gerald and Vergie Allen
