I appreciate all those who have contributed to - it's a great source when it comes to researching. I'm ready to share everything I know about my ancestors and relatives, including any scans of photos, documents, etc, that I might have that you need, so just email me and ask. It doesn't do me any good to find out about something and keep it all to myself - there's just no fun in it if I can't tell anyone about it and it certainly doesn't help genealogy very much to keep everthing private. I'm a descendent of Albert & Martha Gentry McCarty; Samuel Eli and Harriet Jones McCarty; & Levi & Ruth Gentry, William Houston and Sarah Elizabeth Nash Sims; Nicholas and Gladys Thomas (Florida)and others; and related to many who live or have lived in or near Sherman, MS and other places in Union, Pontotoc, Lee Counties at one time with the surname Humphreys; Bedford; Dillard; Johnson; Crump; Sanders; McNutt; Easterling; Gurley; Lackey; Cannon; Wylie; McBrayer; Smith; Gibson; Roberson; and others...just recently started working on my Sims descendent line including: Maxcy; Nash; Caudle; Lewis; Chism; Moore (Texas) Parkman (Texas); Bessemer (Oklahoma)and others.

Went to Glenwood took 1,300 pictures, adding then now. Did your Gentry picures first. Added a couple more of then. I did the entire front facing Jackson. The left side down to the entrace and the right side about half way down before the rain chased me away.

I plan on doing Glenwood very soon, have done some of it. We have to contact the police department to go there. The people next door have pit bull dogs, Last time we went one broke loose. We was very lucky a public works employee happened by and called the animal shelter.

RE: Easterlings in McNeil Cemetery
Hi Gary, you know more about Jeffie than I do, but William Lee was a son of Marcus Benjamin and Sallie Wade Easterling. Marcus was the brother of my great grandfather Isom Lee Easterling, and the son of James and Amanda (Mandy) Miller Easterling. (That would make him my IC2R.) I show William as being called by his middle name, so it took me awhile to find him.

William Lee and Jeffie's children were
1. Mary Frances m. ? Gurley (I may be able to find someone who has that info if you want it.
2. Mildred married ? Langston (same for Mildred, though I'm not as confident)
3. Coley (no info)
4. Marcus m. Mary Ruth Long

I have an obit for Mary Frances which shows her children.

Mary Frances Easterling Gurley, 77, died Feb. 11, 2005, at the Daniel's Nursing Home in Fulton. A native of Saltillo, she was born Sept. 11, 1927, to the late William Lee and Jeffie Lee Billingsly Easterling.

She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Tupelo.

Services were at the Jefferson Street Chapel of W. E. Pegues with burial in Lee Memorial Park.

Survivors include two sons, Terry Gurley and his wife, Barbara, of Guntown, and Tommy Gurley of Tupelo; one sister, Mildred Langston of Milton, Fla..; two grandchildren; three great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Coley and Marcus Easterling.

Hope that helps. - Marty Davis
