|Bio and Links|
I have been involved in cemetery research since 2004, concentrating on old sites in Claiborne County, Mississippi. I love the peace and solitude that comes with surveying an old site and discovering whose name will be on the next stone. I have been very fortunate in getting the cooperation of hunters and land owners in gaining access to so many of the sites in the county, and my good fortune has resulted in a couple of published books, namely, Carved in Stone: Cemeteries of Claiborne County, Mississippi, and Whispers in the Cedars: Port Gibson, Mississippi's Wintergreen Cemetery.|
I get a thrill out of being able to put people in touch with their long-lost ancestors and will always be happy to transfer any memorials to their relatives or other loved ones. And despite my e-mail address, I do NOT dig up bones!

William...thank you so very much in all of your time and effort in finding Walter and Eva's graves. I really appreciate all of your beautiful photos of their headstones and especially the photo of their graves beside each other! They are from my hometown and I remember their hardware store being operated by their son up until it closed (1980's?).

You have made me one very happy camper by finding the grave of my g-g-grandmother, Rhoda T. Thornton. This provides a lot of missing details for me. Can you tell me more about this particular cemetery, where exactly it is located? Do you have any other photos of the cemetery to provide some context? I really, really appreciate it!
|George Bragg||Charles & Katherine Schuman Memorials|
Thanks for letting me manage these. Will do my best to maintain them well.
|George Bragg||RE: Memorial for John Herman Schuman|
My Aunt was Elizabeth Schuman. She married my Dad's brother Charles Albert Bragg. They are both buried in Metarie, La.
I will take them if you want to give them up.
