Moriana, thank you so much for your edits on Velma's memorial. Velma was my aunt, and I was sure she died in Magee. However, I have now found her obit, and you are right, she died in Mendenhall. I appreciate your research to correct her memorial, and I appreciate all that you do on findagrave. You are a great help to all of us who are searching for accuracy. I apologize for failing to accept your edit for the place of her death. I will now change her death location. Thank you again for your help and for bringing this error to my attention!

Hello, If you are not related to Alline Benton, memorial # 57900049, I would really appreciate a transfer of her memorial to me. She is a very special Aunt to me. When my Daddy died in Texas, we came home to live with her.
I appreciate you linking her with my Daddy and his brothers,etc.

High Hill Baptist Church Cemetery
High Hill Baptist Church Cemetery
Dixon, Neshoba County, Mississippi, USA
I am looking for some relatives that we believe are buried in High Hill. Would you happen to have a complete listing of the cemetery? I am specifically looking for Royal James Brewer, born abt 1892, died unknown; His wife Effie R Wilson Brewer b 5 JAN 1895 died APR 1978; His mother Roxie Ann Barfield Brewer b. 9 JAN 1858 died unknown. Are there any unknown burials in the cemetery.
Any Help would be very much appreciated.

Ates in Macedonia Baptist Cemetery, Simpson County, Mississippi
Hi Moriana.

Thank you so much for changing the spelling of S. T. Ates to Saint Helena Ates. I visited Macedonia Cemetery last week. The pastor of the church showed me the legend of the plots and the names. I have some additional info I'd like to share with you.

(1) I could not find Saint Helena Ates (or even S. T. Ates) anywhere on the legend or in the cemetery. I'm hoping that it's in your records and you'd share it with me.

(2) I found Saint Helena (and Permelia Ates Crawford's) brother in the same cemetery. His grave is marked R. B. Ates, but I know his name is Roburtous B. Ates.

(3) I found another Ates in the same cemetery that has not been documented on findagrave. He is an uncle or a cousin. I can get you that info too.

(4) I don't think you can help me with this, but I'll ask anyway. I am looking for my 3rd great grandmother, Martha Angelina (Ann or Annie) Sullivan Ates. This was Saint Helena, Permelia, and Roburtous' mother. Her whereabouts after 1864 are a mystery. Her husband (their father, Thomas Ates) and his brother (James) were hung during the Civil War for deserting and becoming a member of the infamous Newt Knight's Company in the "Free State of Jones." They were buried in Newt Knight's cemetery. It is rumored that she remarried a Stuckey and is also buried in Macedonia, but I could not find her. That rumor came from a researcher who passed away a few years back, so I can't question her about it.

I plan to go back over there in the next couple of weeks and take a broom, some grass clippers and a better camera. I'd be glad to send you the pictures and their relationship to each other. I didn't know how far you were from the cemetery. It only takes me about 40-45 minutes to get to it. My personal email is

Thanks again. Carol Frizzell
