I just discovered that you took a photo in December of my mother-in-law's mother's grave at Evergreen Cemetery. I want to thank you so much for doing this. It means a great deal.

Thanks for taking an interest.
Pickens was born in Enid, Mississippi on August 21, 1881. I don't know the exact date of his death in Gulfport.

I am a distant in-law of this man. I don't want to own the memorial, but would appreciate it if you added this bio for him and linked him to his spouse Lorado, memorial #50963371 and his parents Ike #96464493 and Lottie #99819974:
William Pickens Lowry, or Pickens as he was called, was born in Enid, Mississippi in 1881 to Ike and Lottie Lowry. His parents moved to Gulfport, Mississippi where Pickens was raised with his sister and three brothers.
Pickens was by trade a salesman and for most of his life a bachelor. He lived all over Mississippi and Louisiana and other places, but in 1904 he married twenty year old Lorado Bryan in Gulfport, Mississippi. By 1910 she convinced him to settle down and join her and her sisters in Richmond, Texas where Pickens worked as a sales clerk. Unfortunately, Lorado died of an appendectomy operation in 1915. Pickens stayed in Richmond a few more years, but then he moved away and became a traveling salesman and lived in boarding houses in Wichita, Texas in 1920 and in Akron, Ohio in 1930. In 1942 at age 60 he registered for the draft while living in Baltimore, Maryland and listed no wife or relative as next of kin. In 1954 he died at the age of 73 in Gulfport, Mississippi and is buried with his parents and other relatives in Evergreen Cemetery.

Barbara, Thank you for taking the time to photograph James Tyrone's grave. Appreciate it.
|Bonnie D.||RE: Adams Cem.|
Many thanks for your hard work. I will go through and link and add other info, if I can find some.
|Bonnie D.||Adams Cem.|
Thank you for the updates on this cemetery. I got the info from transcripts done by a member of the genealogy society in 1995, so there may be several errors/corrections.
And keeping everyone "not forgotten" is nice through Find A Grave.
One of the many reasons I love this site.
Reasons I don't like the site is more and more from the insane asylum are joining and sending nasty messages for no good reason.
I love history and I believe in preserving it for future generations and this site is one of many ways to accomplish that goal.
Hope your weekend is going great!
Appreciate the photo- Jane
