Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Mississippian, grew up at Ft Bragg, N.C., then moved back to Mississippi, lived in New Hebron, Lawrence, MS. Tom and I have been residing in Copiah Co, MS for about 25 years.
Our ancestors include the descendents of Lee, Gardner, Pippin, Loftin, Welch, Merrill, Williams, Cooley, Bairfield, Boggan, Brooks, Grissom, to list a few, all migrating to Mississippi and loving the area enough to put down centuries old roots.
Genealogy is a passion, I have compiled a large database of people related [and remotely related] over the last 10 years. findagrave has been a great source of dates for my collection.

James Dempsey Barfield
Hi, I have added his parents to his memorial as requested and also transferred the memorial to you.
I saw on your contributor page that Barfield is in your family line and I am not related. There is also a Annie Pernell Barfield with dates of birth similar to James's. She may be his wife. If you want her also just let me know.

Annie Barefield
I linked Annie to her parents.

Are you descended from Henry Barefield? If so, could you please contact me? My grandmother was married to a Henry Barefield in Wayne Co., MS, before she was married to my grandfather and I was never able to identify who he was.

Joseph & Margaret Jenkins
Hi, Michelle -- I just got your message about adding a link to Joseph Jenkins' wife but am confused because the link is already there.

RE: H.B. Bairfield
Yes I will transfer. Do you plan on visiting his grave any time soon to get a headstone photo? I was scratching my head on where did I get his obit (since he passed in 1953) without a headstone. But then I looked at the dates and his obit was with my great grandfather Sellers. I typed the obit by hand from the newspaper article. Send me your email address to and I will send you the actual newspaper obit scan.
