My grateful thanks to Findagrave for providing a place to preserve our cemetery headstone data. Thank you to all the wonderful individuals who contribute not only their time and energy but expense in locating and transcribing cemetery data. Here we can help preserve the memories and images of our family and friends, and we help strangers to us but not to those that find their family and friends among these web pages.

I encourage corrections and/or suggestions for updates. Any edit requests may take up to a month to make but most are completed quicker.

Most memorials I add are works in progress and I am always looking for links and additional information about them. Let's never forget our family and friends. Please leave flower tokens so I can tell that they have been visited.

Please consider setting up a virtual cemetery for your family members. Any memorial can be entered into this virtual cemetery so you can have all your family together. Having someone in your family genealogy is not grounds for a memorial transfer. With thousands of contributors, there are many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Currently live in Walker County Georgia. This web site has helped me find many places I have been looking for. Thanks Find-a-Grave.

Researching Bishop's family from Magee / Mendenhall, Simpson County, Mississippi and Jones' family from Ellisville, Mississippi.
My Bishop family line is me, Walter R, T. Melvin, T. Webster, T. Spencer, Josiah, and Ezekiel Bishop. The "T" stands for Tillmon, Tilman, Tillman, etc.

My Jones family line is me, Margaret Ella, James Robert (Jim), and William Calvin Jones.

I am also interested in the Bishop line female spouse surnames of Sellers, Harvey, Sullivan, Warren, and Street.

I am also interested in the Jones line female spouse surnames of Carney and Stephens.

My husband family names include Craig, Howard, and Morris.

RE: Clarissa Sullivan
After speaking with other family members, they have information which leads us to believe the information that was originally submitted and published in a book was incorrect. There was a Matilda married to John Cothern, so they are digging for more info. I have plans to do a DNA test as soon as I have the funds. I truly believe that would be the simplest solution. Or should I have my mother's done first? Any suggestions?

Clarissa Sullivan
I'm looking for information on Clarissa Sullivan. We have a Clarissa Sullivan in our family but can find very little information other than the Sullivan's from Sullivan's Hollow, Mize, Smith County, MS. She married Wm. Marcus Broadus about 1852-1862. She passed in 1900 and possibly born about 1836.

Thanks

RE: Oak Grove Baptist Church Cemetery
Yes there is a older area enclosed by a old iron fence. There is no legible headstones in that area, if I can get by the church tomorrow (its only a few miles down the road). I will take some pictures of it and upload to the site or if you would like me to email them directly to you.

Re: William Henry Allen correction
Thank you! I have no idea how that happened. As I tried to figure out the confusion on why WH Allen was listed as parent, child, and sibling to himself, I kept going in circles. Finally sussed out that another researcher has listed my WH Allen incorrectly as a father and spouse in another family. In that family, the researcher has my WH Allen linked to a child named WH Allen. Which means that the child is showing on my WH Allen page as another child. I've sent the owner a message. Hopefully, they will remove my ancestor from their family links. Whew. That was odd. So thanks again for the heads up. Shannon

I am sorry I can not tell you any about Margaret's date of birth or her death certificate. Her memorial was done by my sister. I don't know where she got the information.
