RE: Sims Family Cemetary
My great grandmother was Mary Alice Garrett Joyce. I too have thought that Duke could have given them the land. Have you ever checked Grady Garrett's research at the Madison library to see if he has anything on the land transfers? I looked you up on FB. We should be friends. I've got many old pictures posted in an album there.

RE: Sims Family Cemetary
Jessie, I wish I did remember the way. Your Grandfather took me there when I was about 22 or 23, and that's been 25+ years ago. I've tried to figure out where it was by looking at google maps, I remember him telling us that you could see Madison and Stoneville from the hilltop where it was. I just don't know the area good enough. And he took us on quite the tour that day. For some reason I remember it being close the Joyce Chapel. I do recall that we drove through a cow pasture to the top of the hill where it was.

My great grandmother grew up in your grandfather's house. We must be some sort of cousins. My Dad and James were 1st cousins twice removed.
