My husband and I are trying to make up for lost time. Quite a bit of our families history has slipped away. And with only a few from the older generation still with us to tell their story, it has become more important than ever for us to document what we can from the here and now, while we also search for answers from the past.

We especially enjoy strolling through cemeteries and consider it an honor when we are able fill a photo request. I showed my Grandmother this website and she was so excited to actually see the graves of family members that she hasn't been able to visit in many, many years.

We feel blessed to be part of such an amazing community of people.

Happy graving ya'll!!!

Obituary for Norma Crites
Hi, this is your cousin Kay (one of John & Verna Mae's daughters). I didn't see our Grandpa's name on the list of Norma's siblings, which surprised me. Ruby was on there but not Rufus.

Hope all is well with you folks. I do apologize but still haven't gotten up the nerve to do more on my mom's Find-A-Grave entry which you so graciously assigned to me. Just the other day I ran across the pix I took of her in the casket and about lost it! I will get to it, hopefully sooner rather than later!

Take care.

I have a question about Mary Fitzwater and am hoping you can help.

I have found two Mary Fitzwater's that were entered by you. One is at Old Advance/Mayberry Cemetery (#26544210), and the other at Brownwood Cemetery (#32536999). The birth and death dates are the same, as is the notation that she is buried w/o H.D.

Am I to assume that Mary was moved from Old Advance to Brownwood Cemetery around the time the tombstones were hauled away. Also, I was wondering if her tombstone was among those recovered from that incident in Advance.

Any help solving this mystery is very much appreciated.

Sorry it has taken me son ling to reply but I have a run-away e-mail with more messages than I can keep up with. I think you are right about the headstone. What I dont understand is why it is at Brownwood Cemetery & not Cruse Cemetery where they put all the others. I will link them & put an explanation on there as well -

Photo Request

I notice you have a request(s) for Bruce Cemetary in Bruce, MS. I plan to be in the area in about 3 weeks. Do you know where in the cemetery your grave is located?
