I am researching the Daniel family of Perry, Humphreys Counties, and the Creasy family, areas include, Decatur, Gibson, Perry, Wayne, Henderson, Dyer Counties. If you are looking for info or researching these families then maybe we can help each other. **There are some cemeteries that I will not do transfers from, the Weems Cemetery in Perry County and any cemeteries that lists any Daniel family members. So, please save us both sometime and do not ask.**

David W Hilliard
Beings that you have added the death certificate for David W Hilliard in Lauderdale county, TN. I'm hoping that you are researching the same family? If so, please contact me:
I'm trying to locate a possible daug. Ida. The 1880 Census for Alcorn Mississippi seems to match up.

Thank You.

A great big thank you for the photos of my great Aunt and Uncle Hedge in the Bakerville Cemetery.
I am now the sponsor of this family.
You are part of a wonderful group of folks who make it better for people like me to find our families.

God Bless You, T.Gentry

RE: Forester Siblings
They were children of F.B. and I.B., not children of Albert of Vian who were their great grandparents

The initials of "J.B." probably should be "I.B" standing for Ida Biggs who was the wife of Ferrell A. Forrester.

Alfred Forrester and Viann Nix
These are listed twice as buried in the Bakerville Cemetery. Suggest removing duplicates.

Also, W.R. Forrester, buried in the Bakerville Cem is Alfred and Viann's oldest son and can be linked to them.

Minnie Pope Himes
You have Minnie buried in the Bunch Cemetery
(named W.R. Bunch Cemetery in the cemetery book). There are only 5 graves in this cemetery. Did you mean to put her memorial in Bunch (Woods-Treadwell) cemetery?

Uva Jean Garner
Aunt Uva Jean needs to be linked as a sibling to my stepmother Vera Gay Miller and also to her mother Mary Flowers Hester Qualls
I don't know who Uva Jean's actual father was. Mary Flowers had her before her and Garfield were married. If Vera ever knew, she never told me about it, and Uva Jean never said either.
Also, Mary Flowers needs to be linked to her parents Gus Enlow Hester
and her mother Ida Lorina Tate

I haven't looked to see if Uncle John T Hester and his wife are on here yet, but if he is, that's Mary Flowers' brother. Thank you for all your hard work Sandy & God Bless!

Hello Sandy,

I was just looking at the listing you created for my great-grandmother, listed as Flora Louise Buchanan. I have located an entry for her parents on the Find-a-Grave website. If you would like to link to the page by adding them to her "family links," I have included the link here for your convenience. Thank you for creating and maintaining the entry!
