Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love doing genealogy. The search for our ancestors and their stories have intrigued me beyond my own imagination. I love walking the old cemeteries and then, the search that comes with them. I hope I can help another person in their research.

Please, do not add death certificates to the memorials I have created. Sometimes, they can be hurtful to family members. Also, any pictures or information I have added, feel free to use them. It would be nice to have credit for them.

William Marion Westbrook#77479070
Hi Connie,
I spoke to Dorothy today, this is her Uncle William, and his middle name is Marion and no one ever talked about him being Junior and William Marcus being Senior. William Marcus was called 'Papa Westbrook' by his grandkids. We're thinking it was a mistake on William Marcus' gravestone and then continued on William's. William Marion never did marry. He was a lawyer but I don't know what kind of law he practiced.

Paul Westbrook
Hi Connie,
Aunt Dot has a picture of Paul Westbrook and wrote that he had worked for the FBI and that he died in a plane crash in China. That's all the information she has, though there might be more that is not accessible in her heaps of info. His brother Marvin has a memorial and father Luther. Can we do something for Paul? Do you have any information?
Should we wait until I visit Aunt Dot and possibly get some dates, and maybe verification? Paul and Aunt Dot would have been 1st cousins.

RE: Eunice Westbrook Jones and Rueben Aaron Jones
Thanks for the advice. I do hope to keep her work or one of my sisters. Just updated Eunice and Reuben with pictures. They look good! I went through the Westbrooks on my line and saw your name a lot. Thanks again for doing all that.

RE: Eunice Westbrook Jones and Rueben Aaron Jones
Thank you Connie! My Aunt Dorothy has lots of information on her parents and their siblings and her grandparents. She was doing a tremendous amount of genealogy but she's 85 now and can't see well.
I have requested that Mary Dean Cantrell be linked to her parents Wilmer and Ruby Westbrook. I have also requested a photo of Evelyn Daniels grave which we believe to be in Plot 19. She's an infant daughter of Cora Westbrook Daniels and I'd like to see them linked. I've also requested a photo of Mary Elizabeth Jones' grave b.1922 from that same plot, as she is Eunice and Rueben Jones 1st child who died at age 5 of diptheria. She's my father's older sister. I'm going to link Dad, but I don't see pictures of Milton S. Jones and Arthur Stanley Jones(my dad's brothers), buried in that plot 19 also. So I need to request that so the family will be completely linked. Dorothy Jones Henderson will be buried in the Athens City Cemetery next to her husband, when the time comes. Again, I appreciate all that you've done. Gail

Eunice Westbrook Jones and Rueben Aaron Jones
Hello Connie,
Eunice Westbrook Jones and Rueben Aaron Jones are my grandparents. I appreciate all the research you have done on behalf of the Westbrook Family. I was wondering if you would transfer their memorials to me #48659061. My Aunt Dorothy is their only living child and she will help me write a bio and add their pictures. She may want to add to some of her uncles and aunts or grandparents but I can just send those to you and you'll put them on, right? Your name stays on there as creator of the memorial and then my name goes on as manager.

Thanks,
Gail Starr

RE: Williamson Henry Westbrook
Hi Connie
Sorry about being so long in responding on your request. I had trouble with my email address but seems to have it straight out now.
I can't say for sure if Williamson Henry Westbrook and his wife is buried at Stanford Cemetery or not. But I do believe they were. They lived in that area.
I am from Monroe County, Mississippi and am related to the Westbrook's too. My great grandmother, Laviney Henrietta Westbrook Hawkins, was their youngest child and only showed up on one census.
As for the death date of Williamson Henry Westbrook it was February 1852. I got this date from legal papers recording in the court records in Aberdeen, Mississippi.
Hope this helps. I have been doing genealogy since 1992 and simply love it. Keep in touch. Would love to know how you are connected.
Thanks. Peggy

RE: Mae Ann
The problem is on my end the pictures are right side up. I took all the pictures right side up to start with...to add to the problem I deleted the originals... I did have another findagrave member fix them for me but now they have a blue tint to them...

Most of the photos are bad anyways. It was cold windy and I was in a hurry to get warm...I plan on going back out to the graveyard and retaking the photos so that they are a higher quality picture.

Sorry for the confusion. And thanks for understanding!

RE: Pleasant Wilson Stone
Yes you are correct, any private land that has a cemetery on it, you can go into the cemetery under their rules, so if it is 10 miles down the road they can say park your car and walk, and that is what you have to do. In this case I just have not gotten to talk to the owner yet and when I do I am sure it will be no problem, just want to speak with them first our of respect for their land.
