Mount Zion Cemetery in Scott County, Mississippi ???
I have sent some edits about the internments listed in this cemetery on 6/11/15. This is just a "follow up" notification. If you have not received "said" edits, please let me know. I will be glad to forward them to you. Thanks, CBD

Link requests
Hi David. I sent three link requests about a month ago and wondered if you'd received them. They were for Martha Hobbs spouse, William Hobbs mother, and George Hobbs father and mother. I can send again if you didn't receive.

George R. Rea (1806 - 1877) #20987333
Thanks for the memorials created for the Wesson and Hazelhurst Cemeteries. Please unlink the above from
(currently linked incorrectly, as PARENTS) James Samuel Rea (1853 - 1948) #29100778 and Sarah Elizabeth "Bettie" Rembert Rea (1857 - 1946) # 20994537 - both born 45+ years after George R. Rea (1806 - 1877) #20987333 . James S and Sarah "Bettie" Rea are actually, George's son and daughter-in-law. James is already linked correctly as the son of George and Sarah Simpson Rea (1813 - 1892). James S and Sarah "Bettie" Rea did have a son named George Rembert Rea, 1879 - 1941 (20994584). See Message #20 below. Thanks,

Regarding your statement: "I am still stumped as to where Sarah Hobbs Hays' mother is buried (Martha Wills Coleman Hobbs (1821-1883)." Walnut Grove is just a few miles from Philadelphia and apparently was the Hays family seat. There are a ton of Hays buried in the Old Carolina cemetery. It's a pretty big cemetery too. My grandmother, Mary Lou Hays McCauley, would have my mother take her out there every time we visited. I remember mother saying that she wanted to visit her (Mary Lou's) grandmother who would be Martha Wills Coleman Hobbs.

I will be going to MS again this summer and can go look for her. What was her husband's name? They had a tornado some years back that destroyed a lot of the stones so I may not find them but I will try! Give me as many names as you can and I will try to find those too.

RE: musicians
Ok, I have another picture for you. I'll send via your direct email.

I took the time to calculate our relationship. We share a set of gg grandparents (Hobbs) which makes us 3rd cousins. You can never have too many cousins!

Have a great day!

P.S. I note that you are a musician. I believe that talent comes down thru either the Hays or Hobbs line. We have at least one accomplished musician in every generation. Currently I have a first cousin who's the retired head of the music department at Ole Miss and another cousin who is majoring in music at the University of South Carolina. I had two uncles who played multiple instruments and even had a jazz band back in the 1930's. My grandmother (Mary Lou Hays) played the organ and sang. What is your instrument?

RE: Transfer of George Hays
Hi David. I haven't done much work on any of my families lately. I started a new business and it's consuming way more time than I'd like!

I have uncovered some Hays photos. I'm not sure if I've sent them to you or not. As I recall, you were more interested in the Hobbs line? I also have the SAR/DAR application that my uncle filled using the Hays/Hobbs line. I'm happy to share any of this with you.

I also found a typed hard-copy of the Hays genealogy in a file in the Neshoba County MS library. I will eventually be putting that into Family Tree Maker and could share with you as a GEDCOM. Do you have any on-line trees that you'd be willing to share with me or a way to share a GEDCOM file with me?

Hope you are not getting bad weather today. We've actually got sun here in Memphis today and I'm on my way out the door to enjoy a little before it runs and hides again!

Have a great weekend.
