|Bio and Links|
I had decided to undertake trying to photograph every tombstone that i could find or know about in the Chickasaw Co., Mississippi area. Now that is about out of the question as i can not get out and photograph for very long anymore.|
If you see a relative that you want to add something to, just click on the edit button at the top right and i will add it. If you want ownership of the person, email with your ID number and i will transfer the person over to you. All i am looking to do is preserve the history of tombstones in Chickasaw Co., Mississippi. Some of them are rapidly fading away.
UPDATE:June 16, 2012 well after about 4 years of photographing stones, we had almost got it done. Now my health is not allowing me to get back out right now, so i have picked up retyping obits from old newspapers. i started in 2008 and have been going backwards. I am now on the year 1958. i will continue to go until have done all the books that i can get a hold of.
Update again: April 11, 2013: Well i am finished with retyping obits out of the Times Post, in Houston, Miss. I started getting the obit out of the 2008 papers and went all the way back to the year 1930. They did not have any of the papers before 1930. I am trying now to link people in Chickasaw county by using Census records that i can find online. I will do this until i can go no further. My goal is to have as many as i can from Chickasaw county linked where i can link them.

|William G. Latham Jr.||RE: Melvin Kelly Brooks|
I will call the newspaper office Monday, thanks for letting me know. I'm sure Melvin Kelly Brooks was a brother of John Wesley & Eliza Louisa "Martin" Brooks. Melvin's pallbearer's were the sons of John Wesley & Eliza. Howard Carter was a brother - in - law, to them.

I've noticed you have a memorial for a Melvin Kelly Brooks, buried at Pleasant Ridge Cemetery. You listed a obit. for him. I have reason to beleave his name was Mason Kelly Brooks, a brother of wife's Great Grandfather! All of the pallbearers at his funeral were the son's of John Wesley & Eliza "Martin" Brooks. John Wesley Brooks was a brother of Mason Kelly Brooks! I wonder if you still have a copy of his obit.? I would like to see a copy of it, and make sure his name is correct. My wife's uncle Sam Brooks told us many years ago, that his Grandfather John Wesley Brooks brother Mason Kelly Brooks was buried there, but we never could locate a marker for him. Shorty Leroy Brooks was also buried there, he was also a son of John Wesley Brooks.

I just wanted to thank you for getting the photo of my ggg Grandfather's headstone (#60946612). I have been to visit his gravesite in the cemetery and meaning to do a rubbing of the worn stone, but never got around to it since I'm far away.
I was so pleasantly surprised to see your photo and the chalk rubbing, which shows the engraving very nicely!
Well, thanks very much again for all your efforts....you have done so much with all your transcriptions and photos!

Thank you for the photo of Rebecca's marker (#30654518). Would it be OK with you if I post your photo, with credit, to my Ancestry.com family tree? (It, and other photos of yours I may come across as I continue to research this family.)
