There is a missing headstone to the right of Reba and at the foot of Reba's grave site. There are NONE that are marked with that name. I looked twice and my husband assisted looking today. Sorry we couldn't locate it.

You may want to check Philis Cook's work. You might need to merge or something-she has Myrtle 108782964 Jonathan Leroy 108782847 Reba 108782765 which has headstone pix. When I go, I will see if I can get pix without the fence shadow in them.

Related to Micthells on Mom's side
Hi DeeDee,

I just found out my Grandfather on Mom's side married into a Mitchel family after him and Granny divorced. It would be interesting to find out they were Uncle Roberts relatives, huh?
This is what I have :
Your grandfather was my step-grandfather--only living grandfather I knew, and he was a "jewel".
He married my maternal grandmother, Nova Susie Mitchell.
He spoke often of his daughter, Wanda Jean, whom I'm sure he missed. I have traced some of his family on He was the 3rd child of Andrew Sherman Trew--Mem#10704102 and Tilda Emaline Orr Trew--Mem#124418764. They were both born in TN and died in Texas. He had one brother, Richmond Dewey Trew, who married Gola Rigsby in Arkansas. They had 3 children before his early death. He also had one sister, Mary Frances Trew, who married Grover Spencer Watkins, about 1910 in Collin, Texas. They also had 3 children. One of their sons, Leonard Watkins, married one of Nova Sue's younger sisters, Gladys Mitchell. Mary Frances was 12 years older than Jessie Ray. I also have names of his grandparents; if you would like to have them, just let me know. I have tried today to connect some family links for you--may take a few days for any response.///////////////

So DeeDee, what do you think?

Love ya lots,

William Henry Shackelford, son of L.W.
Dear Dee Dee, My name is Shirley (Cartwright) McKenzie. My grandfather's sister, Nancy Jane Cartwright married William Henry Shackelford in Prentiss County, MS ON 11 December 1893. (Source: MS Marriage Records. I am completing my family tree with their information because I see that there are Shackelfords 'out there'. Henry and Nancy are buried at the Carolina Methodist Church Cemetery in the Carolina Community, near Booneville, Prentiss County, MS. They share a double headstone. She remarried after his death and had two more children (to a Noah Washington Shook), but I think they separated - if not divorced. Henry and Nancy had three children: Florence, who died as a small child, Ethel who married her first cousin (their daughter was a beloved friend and cousin to me) and Leonard who had no children and lived most of his adult life & died (I think) around Red Bay, Alabama. I know the least about Leonard. I am going back and look to see if Henry and Nancy are on Find A Grave. If they aren't I am going to add them and then ask you to connect them to their parents. I am excited to find the Shackelford family.

You have indeed found our Shackelfords. Grandma said her grandmother was Mamie Mahalie Shackelford but Grandma herself was named Nan...changed to Nanette...and my husband's sister was named Jeanette.

This is the link we have been seeking.

Thank you!
