The son of a career US Air Force pilot (KIA Vietnam), I am a retired US Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer, and a retired Contract Administrator/negotiator/writer for the nuclear power industry.
My interest in family research and cemeteries goes back to my teen years and my mother's interest in the subject. Every summer was spent in Mississippi at the old (ca. 1835) plantation home owned by my grandmother and her brother.
My goal here is to document, through personal visits and photography, all known cemeteries in a two county area in Mississippi. I will also include cemeteries that were at one time surveyed along with the recorded graves, but that I cannot (and others) locate after diligent search.
I gladly will transfer memorials to family members within FAG Guidelines, and may also consider transfer requests from others with a pressing need. I also solicit any and all corrections and expansion of the data I enter (I am not a perfect typist).

|J Pickle||Robert Ray - Waterloo cemetary damaged military grave|
I have information on a damaged grave at the Waterloo cemetery in Mississippi. The grave belongs to a Robert Ray.
According to a written affidavit, the grave was identified by Robert Dudde on 8-17-1941 in response to a request by a Mrs Comfort. See link- https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GP3S-KH9?i=34&wc=9B4C-ZV3%3A211900201%2C212085201%3Fcc%3D1919687&cc=1919687
The nps.gov site shows only one black navy Union soldier from the state of Mississippi. Born in Marion, the soldier served on the vessel 'Louisville' from Sep 30 1863 to Dec 31 1864.

Do you have any more information on Elizabeth Scott wife of James Scott late of South Carolina. I think she may be in my direct line but I need to know some dates for her. I would be connected through the Scott line. You say part of the stone was buried but I hoped you might have found some dates on it. I know I am grasping for a straw but thanks anyway.

|Patty Ward||Church Hill United Methodist Church Cemetery|
I failed to mention a few other relatives of mine in this cemetery.
Walter Ander Gill was the younger brother of my grandmother, Deba Gill Pickering, and his wife was Lillian Whittington Gill, and 3 of his infant children are buried here: Betty L, James C, and Joel David Gill.
James Edgar Montgomery was the infant son of Mamie Pickering Montgomery (still living), a daughter of Frank and Deba Pickering, and her husband, Samuel L. Montgomery, Jr. (also still very much alive).
Now I think that I have explained the relationships of all 24 of my relatives buried in the Church Hill United Methodist Church Cemetery.
|Patty Ward||Church Hill United Methodist Church Cemetery|
24 of the 35 graves in this cemetery are my family members. Thank you for taking the time to add this cemetery to this site. I have asked online for various edits, mostly to show familial relationships, but those edits seem to be held up. The Pickering patriarch and matriarch, Frank Edgar and Deba Gill Pickering, had 12 children, with Lucy dying in childhood in 1945 and the other 11 living to adulthood. Lucy died prior to the building of this church, and was buried at Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery, also in Church Hill. Now 9 of the children are deceased, including my mother, Annie Dora Pickering Collins, who was cremated, but we did install a marker in the cemetery next to my father, Harvey Houston Collins, Jr., and my sister, Maria Louisa Collins Stevens, and her infant daughter, Annie Elaine Springs. Charles Ray Pickering and Virginia Estelle Pickering Bissell were cremated, and do not have memorial markers anywhere that I know of.
The other children of Frank and Deba who are buried here are:
Myrtice Marie Pickering Young and her husband, Ira James Young, and their son, James S. Young.
Arthur Frank Pickering and his wife, Barbara Hornbrook Pickering.
Frances Loret Pickering Hudson
Walter Fuller Pickering and his daughter, Tammy Marie Pickering.
Betty Jean Pickering, who has an infant child buried somewhere in Warren County, MS, born (but lived only days) during Betty's marriage to Wayne Williams.
My father's parents, Harvey Houston Collins and Jewel Marie Foster Collins, and their son, Sidney Earl Collins, are also buried here.
If it is necessary for you to approve the edits, please allow them so that there is a clearer depiction of the relationships of our family resting in the Church Hill United Methodist Church Cemetery.

|Polly Terry Day||Willie Briscoe #49270237|
Willie Briscoe is the son of my husband's great grand aunt and uncle, William J. Briscoe and Sarah Ann Darden. Would you mind telling me where the date of birth and death came from. I am researching my husband's ancestry and have come across an 1860 US census that lists Wm J Briscoe, Jr. with his mother and father, Wm J Briscoe and Ann (Darden) Briscoe. Wm Jr. was listed as age 6 years old. I have some Lineage papers on the heritage of the Briscoes in America and it states that Wm. J Briscoe and Sarah Ann Darden Briscoe had one son but he died at age 9 years old. It doesn't give his name though. Just trying to work all this out. I'll look forward to hearing from you.
