Willis Simmons Cemetery
Your message "Willis and Jane Goslin Simmons are buried in the Willis Simmons Cemetery behind the old home place in Simmonsville, Ms. They are not in the Simmons Cemetery across the road." I have looked for a Simmons Cemetery and cannot find. Is it listed or do I need to create? Thanks for the information. Jane

Thank you for adding this picture. I understand that Mr. Allman was kind enough to add the gravestone for his ancestor, Stephen D. Pool.

Thanks so very much for doing her marker photo. This completes a quest I began in 1988 to find the parents of Dixie Dees Gammage, teacher and First Lady of Arizona State University.

Col. Stephen D. Pool
Thanks so much for tracking down and taking a photo of the marker for Col. Pool. I and other family members really appreciate it. The marker was added by a descendant of Col. Pool; I presume there may have been no original marker. Hope you and family have a great day!


Robert B. Pool II (not a direct descendant of Col. Pool but one of the Pools of Pasquotank Co., NC., even though I live in Maryland.)
