Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in cemetery research since 2004, concentrating on old sites in Claiborne County, Mississippi. I love the peace and solitude that comes with surveying an old site and discovering whose name will be on the next stone. I have been very fortunate in getting the cooperation of hunters and land owners in gaining access to so many of the sites in the county, and my good fortune has resulted in a couple of published books, namely, Carved in Stone: Cemeteries of Claiborne County, Mississippi, and Whispers in the Cedars: Port Gibson, Mississippi's Wintergreen Cemetery.
I get a thrill out of being able to put people in touch with their long-lost ancestors and will always be happy to transfer any memorials to their relatives or other loved ones. And despite my e-mail address, I do NOT dig up bones!

Once again I owe you a big heartfelt thank you! Thank you for taking not just one, but multiple photos of the stones in her plot. This adds so much information to her memorial page. It also give those people living far away a feeling of what her plot looks like - not just her gravestone.

Selma Dover Meyer #162092137
Dear William,

Call be a crazy genealogist, but late last night I was thinking of my childhood pediatrician, Henry S. Meyer, as he was a very kind and gentle human being. My parents had money problems, and Dr. Meyer was sweet enough to allow my parents to pay their bills over time . . . over a very long time. Even after Dr. Meyer's death, my parents continued to pay their bills out over time to his estate. I wondered what happened to Dr. Meyer. In doing so, I started a tree for him on Crazy? Yes? Or maybe No?

Dr. Meyer's mom was Selma Dover Meyer #162092137. His sister was Caroline Dover Meyer #91753045, whose memorial you were kind enough to have created in he memory.

On Caroline's memorial, you included a photo of her mother's headstone. Can you please add it to her mother's memorial, Selma Dover Meyer #162092137.

I am going to me adding information to Caroline's memorial through the edit tab.

Thank you so much for your wonderful work here on findagrave to remember those who have passed.

God Bless,
M W Bencal
