Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching both my wife's and my family. Since 2006 I have accumulated a LOT of fruitful research, however it seems that my grandmother's Bracy/Bracey line is harder to find than I thought.

The names I am researching within my family are:

Camel/Campbell (Haywood County, Tennessee)
Ingram (Haywood County, Tennessee)

All names below have origins in Hinds County, Mississippi:

Bracy/Bracey
Owens
Mitchell/Mitchel
Sutton

If anyone has any headstone of the following people please contact me:

My maternal great-grandparents:
Clay and Sindy (Mitchel) Bracy

Ernest Cambell and Beatrice Ingram(UPDATE: Beatrice is in an unmarked grave in Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, IL.)

My maternal great-great grandparents:

Augustus 'Gus' and Corah (Sutton) Bracy
Ed and Peggy Mitchell

My maternal great-great-great grandparents:

Cook and Rose Mitchell

Andrew and Delia Mitchell (not sure if it's the same Mitchell line as Cook & Rose as of yet)

Ned and Laura Bracy

Frank Sutton and Louisa (Owens) Sutton

My maternal great-great-great-great grandparents:

Frank and Lutitia Sutton
Horace and Milly Mitchel (or Mitchell)

I will update this list as I see fit, but the people mentioned here are my direct descendants, so I'd like to start there.

Any help you can provide will be very much appreciated.

Also, as a side note, I live within 10 minutes of the following cemeteries:

Holy Sepulchre (Alsip/Chicago Ridge, IL)
Burr Oak (Alsip, IL)
Restvale (Alsip, IL)
Hazelgreen (Alsip, IL)
Chapel Hill (Alsip/Oak Lawn, IL)
St. Mary's (Evergreen Park, IL)

If you have (or believe you have) a relative buried there and need a headstone photo, please email me and I will take care of it for you.

I look forward to corresponding with you, and again thank you for any help you can provide.

RE: Re: Big Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Hinds County, MS
You could tell there were a large number of unmarked graves in the cemetery. And then there were several graves marked by funeral home markers, headstones or concrete ledgers, but any identification they once had went missing long ago. A number of the older headstones were homemade from concrete. It was an interesting cemetery to walk, but unless the church has good records, a difficult one to research. Good luck in your quest. --Bob

Big Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Hinds County, MS
I walked this cemetery this morning and did not locate any of the 4-graves you had requested. There was a handful of marked Bracey graves there, all spelled "BRACEY" with the earliest burial date being ca. 1975. Sorry I could not be of more help. --Bob

Vincent,
What a wonderful surprise to see the e-mail that you had taken a photo of the headstone. Thanks so much. Also, I noticed his wife was on the stone too. I never knew her death date.

Thanks for going the extra mile!

Thanks for your efforts. I appreciate your time and effort. I did get a reply form someone who said his wife is not buried there unless she changed her name after her husband died. I think she died about 25 years after he did. He was pretty young when he died. Anyway thanks again and good luck to you.

Bye now
Barb :)
