Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in cemetery research since 2004, concentrating on old sites in Claiborne County, Mississippi. I love the peace and solitude that comes with surveying an old site and "discovering" whose name will be on the next stone. My goal is to put together a historical and geographical sketch of Claiborne County, based on cemetery locations, 1800's marriage records and will records. I get a thrill out of being able to put people in touch with their long-lost ancestors. I will always be happy to transfer any memorials to their relatives or other loved ones. And despite my e-mail address, I do NOT dig up bones!

Thank you so much for taking my Great Uncle's tombstone photo. I was just looking at his profile last night too. If I can assist you in Michigan genealogy, please do not hesitate to ask.

Mr. Sanders, thank you so much for taking a photograph of my uncle and aunt's tombstones. I wasn't even sure where they were buried until I ran across Aunt Clara's obituary among some of my grandmother's things. Their graves were not listed on Findagrave. They never had children and I never knew either one of them. One thing I do know is that they helped finish raising my grandfather when he lost his mother when he was 13 and then his father when he was 16. They both had to be fine people as Papaw sure was. God bless you for taking these for me.

Fannie B. Fortson Williams
My information regarding her name came to me from her grandson, Merrill Calhoun Williams Jr. I have copies of his pedigree sheets from when we corresponded. However, I must acknowledge that he was prone to rely heavily on "family history." He is now deceased. So, I shall concur with the tombstone inscriptions.

Harrison Cemtery
Mr. Sanders
I know this cemetery is in Jefferson county
and your work has been in Claiborne, but
the directions to Harrison cemetery are like the Torrey Cemetery. (On old road off Hwy 61 to Alcorn.)

I was hoping you may know someone helpful,like yourself, in that county that may assist me in getting better directions so I can find this cemetery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much Again,
Tamatha Castle
