Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Mississippi Delta. I have been tracing my family history for many years. Some of the families I am researaching (all with southern roots) are: Bennett, James, Skelton, Newton, Howard, Hays, Garner, Little, Westbrook, Warrick, Long, Arbuckle, Blaylock, and Sullivan. If you have relatives in Carroll County and/or Montgomery County, Mississippi in the 1800s, chances are good that our lines cross.

Solomon Bennett 1786-1852
I have evidence to indicate Solomon was son of William Bennett 1750 SC - 1820 Lincoln Co TN and Lydia Unk 1758 SC - 30 Apr 1822 Lincoln Co TN.
Was brother to my Elisha Bennett 1799 GA - 1857 Giles Co TN paternal 4th ggrandfather.
Whereas Elisha was too young to server in the War of 1812 all other older brother did & were compensated with land in new territory in MS.

Portia, thank you so much for posting Mary Hulda Hawkins on Find A Grave (# 33311894).She is my great great grandmother. I have been searching for her for a long time.
I was not raised in Mississippi and knew very little of my family from there.
Thank you! Thank you! Charlotte

John Lancaster
Hi. I added his headstone today. While I was out there I also took a pic of Elizabeth Lancaster. I wish I could have gotten the dates but it is over half way buried in the ground.

Lucille Pentecost #67230666
I strongly believe she was the daughter of the senior Albert Louis Pentecost #35795662 &
Nettie Lee Travis Pentecost #35795586 as she indicated on the 1910 census that she had had two children with only one living (Albert Louis Pentecost, jr plus the fact his tombstone matches hers. But I have no proof. I don't know what B & D records exist in Sunflower County, MS for that time period. I know the state hadn't started keeping death records yet. Are they all buried in the same plot?

Bose Little
Here is his wife: 106936817 RE your note I believe he's buried next to her. I took a 2nd look at site & there is a space but no stone. If you have info on him I will add to a list I'm compiling so that I can check against IOOF burial list. It has been tied up w/volunteers from new cem assoc trying to computerize for almost 2 yrs. I can't help as they don't want the books taken out of office & I could only do working from my home - anyway, will put him & any detail you might have on a 'look see' basis - but I believe we're safe to assume he is in IOOF Gwood.

Sammy Wakefield
I found another grave of a child in the Boyle South Cemetery. His name is listed as Sammy Wakefield, there is also a Samuel Wakefield list, but with no dates. The child was born when my Anna R. Wakefield was married to Sylvester Cade Beevers. Do you know any more about this family? Wondering if this could possibly be another child by my Sylvester and Anna. Perhaps another Wakefield family.
