Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Jackson, Hinds, Mississippi USA 1949. Lived most of my life in Rankin County, Mississippi USA. Retired after 38 years in the banking industry (BancorpSouth) and 23 years in the United States Air Force and the Mississippi Air National Guard (172nd Airlift Wing). Retired as a Major and was a C-130 pilot. Currently a member of ancestry.com. Son of James Harland Edwards and Otrice Tipton SHOWS. Descendant of Issac EDWARDS, b.1775 and John Adam SHOWS, b. 1760. Most ancestors lived in Simpson, Scott, Smith, Jones and Rankin Counties of Mississippi USA.

I am looking for a grave for Jackson J. Edwards. He was born in 1815 in Franklin, GA. He died in 1883 in Smith County, MS. He had a son named James Jackson (Doc) Edwards who died 2 Jan 1924 and is buried in Summerland Baptist Church Cemetery, Smith, MS. From ancestry.com, all records indicate he died in Smith, MS but I have not been able to find a grave site. His father was Issac Edwards and he is buried in Phillips Cemetery, Philadelphia, Neshoba, MS. He died 13 Nov 1845.

My wife, Barbara Gail (Malone) Edwards and I are working together under one membership. Her relatives are Malone, Steinwinder, O'Flynn (sometimes spelled O'Flinn) and Finnegan. Most relatives lived in Lauderdale, Jasper, Forest and Chickasaw counties.

Hey Charley, I sent a change request to ALC to change name and link to parents. She wants more information to verify that this is Columbus Morgan Bynum. The stone has "She" in the inscription. I posted his WWI draft card.

C. M. Bynum page http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=83772172

She wrote to me:
C. M. Bynum #83772172
Wondering about your suggested correction on above memorial. I would assume from WWI draft card that Columbus Morgan is male but stone inscription says "SHE believed and sleeps in Jesus." Do you have any insight into family? Could it be an error on stone inscription? Will await your answer before making suggested corrections.
Thanks,
Amy Clark

Could you verify for me the above as being correct as you have this in your tree also.

thanks

All of the information I added to Good Hope came from a survey spread sheet found on the county genealogy page. I have never visited Good Hope.

Frances Elisabeth Jones Shows
Hi,thank you for posting my grand Aunt Frances Jones Shows. To me she is the half sister to my grandfather James Albert Peak aka Jim Albet Jones.(born out of wedlock) He took up the name 'Jones' when he began school,never changed back (he was related to his stepfather-Franklin).
Frances Elisabeth Jones parents,Mary Elisabeth Seale & Franklin Lewis Jones were cousins, both having the same ggrand father-John Belton Sr.,having several wives,so they come from different mothers.Frances was born in Columbia,(lived FoxWorth)Marion Co.Ms.Along with her other siblins,raised up going to New Hope Baptist Church,10 Mile Rd. Some relations(sister-Florence Cotton & uncle Wheat Jones & more)are buried in Lott Ceme.on 10 mile Rd.
I don't have any photo's of the family,all my research is on ancestry.com. Hopefully someone will have some soon. This grave photo I am so proud to have,again thank you.God Bless...kat jones thayer

The information I included on the memorials came from a cemetery survey taken by someone else. I don't have any information on your family outside of what I posted.
