Bio and Links
Bio Photo All photographs accredited to me are merely visual representations of various tombstone listings, and, as such, are available for use by anyone, for any purpose, on any other site or publication with the understanding that the user need not gain my express permission for such use; however, credit to the photographer must be given.

The son of a career US Air Force pilot (KIA Vietnam), I am a retired US Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer, and a retired Contract Administrator/negotiator/writer for the nuclear power industry.

My interest in family research and cemeteries goes back to my teen years and my mother's interest in the subject. Every summer was spent in Mississippi at the old (ca. 1835) plantation home owned by my grandmother and her brother.

My goal here is to document, through personal visits and photography, all known cemeteries in a two county area in Mississippi. I will also include cemeteries that were at one time surveyed along with the recorded graves, but that I cannot (and others) locate after diligent search.

I gladly will transfer memorials to family members within FAG Guidelines, and may also consider transfer requests from others with a pressing need. I also solicit any and all corrections and expansion of the data I enter (I am not a perfect typist).

Willie Briscoe #49270237
Willie Briscoe is the son of my husband's great grand aunt and uncle, William J. Briscoe and Sarah Ann Darden. Would you mind telling me where the date of birth and death came from. I am researching my husband's ancestry and have come across an 1860 US census that lists Wm J Briscoe, Jr. with his mother and father, Wm J Briscoe and Ann (Darden) Briscoe. Wm Jr. was listed as age 6 years old. I have some Lineage papers on the heritage of the Briscoes in America and it states that Wm. J Briscoe and Sarah Ann Darden Briscoe had one son but he died at age 9 years old. It doesn't give his name though. Just trying to work all this out. I'll look forward to hearing from you.

William Shaw
Ernest, have you acquired any more Scottish history on William Shaw, such as his parents, grandparents, etc. Online records reflect his father was also William, but state he was born in 1720, 20 years after our William was born. I would just like more info on what this family was doing in Scotland, info on their clan, etc. There is so much on the Cromarties and hardly anything on the Shaw side. Would appreciate you sharing any additional info you might have. Thanks, Becky

Dougald G McCall # 49880596
Hello ...

Dougald is double linked to his wife Susan. One entry is the correct original memorial and is the one he should be linked to. The other is a duplication and should be unlinked and ignored. The creator of the duplication has also done several more and it has caused much confusion.

He should be linked to # 110828219, Created by: avis walton ....not the other one.

Scott Family Cemetery

I am the grandson of Stewart Scott listed in the Scott Family Cemetery in Rodney, Mississippi and a neophyte genealogist. Thanks so much for documenting this.

This cemetery is supposedly the 2nd family cemetery located in the area. There is from family oral history a much older one somewhere in the area.
