Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Frank Beckham, currently a resident of Tennessee. I grew up in the piney woods of central Louisiana and am a product of Mississippi with Mississippi born parents.

I've been chasing ancestral ghost since about 1970. The longer I'm at it, the easier it seems to get, especially with the help of Ancestry.Com.

Some of the lines I'm following are Beckham, Symes/Sims, Cawthorne/Cauthen, Richardson, Ivy/Ivey/Ivie, Waites, Wilson, McGraw, Edrington, etc. I'm happy to discuss their geneology with you.

I'll do my best to give you fast accurate info on the Memorials I manage. If you find an error, a note to my e-mail or a public note with accurate info will get it corrected.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hugh W Ivy Confederate Stone Dedication
To let you know we are placing a Confederate Stone & having a dedication for Hugh W. Ivy, my great, great grandfather, on September 10, Saturday, in Friendship Cemetery in Columbus, MS at 11 a.m. You are invited to come if you can. Would love to see you and please let other Ivy/Ivey descendants know about this dedication.
Hugh died on July 4, 1862 in Columbus, MS according to his Muster rolls. He was in Co E 36th MS Regiment MS Volunteers (Harper's Reserves)during the War Between The States.

Many thanks Frank for researching for our collective family and discovering this couple's cemetery.

I have requested a headstone photograph and I will let you know when it comes in.

Happy holiday season with a big neck hug and a kiss, Wendy

RE: Paul Dean White & wife
Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we have no record of Catherine White being interred at Grandview. In addition to not being on the database, we also checked the original cremation and interment ledgers for a month following her date of death, and didn't find her.

Also looked to see if we could find an obit for her, but there wasn't anything in any of our resources.

Sadly, this often happens with the last spouse to pass, especially if specific instructions were not left, or there were no close remaining family members.

Probably the best way to find out for sure would be to order an Informational copy of her death certificate from the Orange County Recorder's office here:

Unfortunately, it costs $21, but at least you'd know for sure.....

Good luck!

the ivie family
I tried emailing to Would that be yourself. I read a post of yours, i believe about will hugh ivie's son jesse ivie who married sarah anderson. Years ago in midvale utah i ran across this info, and i believe it is the right link for david anderson ivie who married sarah allred. Can you fill me in on this geneology. There is a lot of confusing info about david anderson being born in 1786. I believe that is someone else.

Oh my
Im sorry about the delay, Frank. Yes, I sure am Charlie L. McGraws Grandaughter! He's still puttering around Swartz, finding things to get into. I had meant to tell my dad (Charlie H.) that you had written me. Dad has spent countless hours gathering information on our family, and has made a rather big collection so far! Even some of Pappaws war stories, which are so interesting!!

Thank you!
I found the picture you uploaded for the McGraw family. My dad was very pleased to see some of his kinfolk that he remembers from his childhood. We tried showing Pappaw the pictures, but his eyesite is getting bad and he couldnt enjoy them. Thank you!

I am Laura McCammon. My Brother-in-law is William Downs, son of Marvin Downs. He has asked me to trace the Downs family tree for him. I think some of it has already been done but haven't been able to find a copy. Am I correct in that a father and a son(Downs) married Beckham sisters? I appreciate what you have done concerning the Downs plots and I'm sure the rest of the family feels the same. If there is any pertinent info you can reveal to me concerning this family, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for your work. Laura McCammon
