After doing so much for Chickasaw County, Mississippi, I decided I needed a change in my life so i moved back to my hometown of West Point, Mississippi. I have not picked back up with taking pictures here, but i am working on obits for this area. If i can help anyone in Clay County i will do what i can. |

Barbara, Thanks for Margie Keeley's obit. It has been posted. Lionel
|Marsha Holder||Burchams at Greenwood|
Greenwood Cemetery on Cromwell Street. I have 2 cousins buried there; J. "Johnny" C. Burcham and his wife, Lillie Rambo Burcham and Johnny's sister Pauline Burcham Blankenship Awtry (not sure if that is correct spelling). Johnny passed in 1988 and Lillie in 1999. A photo has been posted for Pauline by family but not Johnny and Lillie. On a return trip from Biloxi in 2012, I went by the cemetery but knew I would never find their graves. A lady there told me the city hall has a chart but it was a Sunday. That is a big cemetery and if you don't know where they are buried, it could take days to walk the area. I didn't have the time. If you could find out the section for me, I will include it in a photo request. Thanks for your help. Marsha

Thank you for your contribution of Luther Williams' obituary. It has been added to the Memorial. Much appreciated!
|Marsha Holder||Earlene Barron|
Thanks for the obit on Earlene Barron. It gives me a clue, her brother's name, so I should be able to find her parents and get them linked. Let me know when you start taking pictures again. I have some Burcham ancestors buried in that old cemetery east of down town West Point. Marsha

|Carolyn Allen||" 30 days "|
What do you mean by "... after 30 days " ? I do hope that the creator of that page for someone buried in Missouri will be cooperative with making links , but I am wondering if there is something I was unaware of by that 30 days phrase .
|Carolyn Allen||William Sanford Vandiver's son Edgar|
I do not know if you have access to census records or not but in the 1880 census in Madison County , Florida along with his wife Hattie listed as 20 are these children : Edgar - 13 , Robert - 6 , and Luler -1 . Edgar was mentioned on his father's memorial page among those of the family offering thanks was Edgsr B. Vandiver . I do not know if you have seen the memorial page # 63081307 for Edgar B. Vandiver buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery in Kennett , Dunkin County , Missouri . If you haven't seen it , you should check it out . I noticed no link has been added for his wife Desta buried there or any children . The birth year is different from the one in Florida by several years but census records for him in Missouri are given as 1869 and 1870 . Even though there are several years difference for birth years between the Florida census and those in Missouri , I believe it is the same person . For one thing both 1920 and 1930 census list his birth state as Florida . I am writing all this in case you did not already know this .
|Carolyn Allen||Dixie Deaton|
I did link Dixie Deaton after an interesting exploration in ancestry.com which revealed her mother's name was Hattie probably Hattie Whitlock listed as 7 in 1870 in Madison , Madison , Florida with I assume her grandmother Rachel Griffin as head of the house with Hattie's sibling Lulia and another child Sarah J. McGee and I assume Hattie's mother Mary E. Whitlock. In 1880 Hattie listed as 20 was living in the same Florida county with her husband listed as W. S. Vandiver and these children Layeny 13 , Edgar 17 , Robert - 6 , and Luler 1 . My assumption is William was married before he married Hattie and had several with his first wife . In 1900 Hattie was listed as 35 with her husband Wm. S. Vandiver 56 in Kenneth , Dunkin , Missouri with the notation the couple had been married 20 years and Hattie was born in Florida . On that 1900 census were 3 children Dixie , Roxie , and Viola . Another interesting fact is in that same Dunkin County , Missouri in Marsh Cemetery listed on findagrave.com are memorials for some Vandiver children . It is one tombstone that has on each of the 4 sides engravings about different children . See # 58759408 ( Walter Vandiver ) for an explanation of those inscriptions . I have no idea where Dixie's mother Hattie Whitlock Vandiver died or is buried nor have I searched yet for a marriage record for Hattie and William S. Vandiver . I also did discover that on the Application for the Headstone for William Sanford Vandiver that the applicant was S. B. Dottery , Viola Vandiver Dottery's husband . Your request led me on an interesting journey into genealogy which I thoroughly enjoyed but still there are mysteries left .

I have seen your entries on FindaGrave and am guessing you might be kin to this family.
My connection is Martha Katherine Davis' husband, Mack Bryant. I am unable to find Martha and her parents in the 1870 census. By any chance, do you know where they were living then or do you by chance have that 1870 census data?

Thanks so much for transferring. And yes, I'm going to leave it just as you had it. I showed it to my grandmother a few days ago. She went to his funeral but had never seen the obit.
