Hello, Teresa and I have been friends for years but only in the last couple of years did we discover our "unnatural" obsession with cemeteries. Our families think we are nuts and maybe we are but we LOVE being able to help people connect with their loved ones who have passed on. We think that Find A Grave is one of, if not THE best site for family researchers. Each memorial, if you are lucky, has the deceased name, birth and death dates, place of birth and death, place of burial, parents, children, siblings, and can help complete someones family tree. It helps loved ones who live thousands of miles away to be able to see the headstone and/or final resting place of their ancestors. We have made it our goal to find, document and photograph each and every cemetery in Choctaw Co. MS. (where we live), the ones that are known and especially the ones that are abandoned and forgotten. It doesn't matter how far back in the woods we have to hike, nor the millions of virgin thorns we seem to attract, all the mud, water, chiggers, snakes, rain, snow, sleet or hail.......ok maybe not so much the last five things. We are dedicated to our "passion" and plan to venture out to other counties that need our attention. God Bless all of our fellow "Find A Gravers" for all that you are doing for Find A Grave.|
Note: In light of some "negative" messages we have received lately I would like to make something clear.............Teresa and I are NOT in this for the number or memorials added, or the number of memorials managed, or the number of photo requests fulfilled or the number of photos we take. We are also NOT in this for the credit or the recognition. We are in this simply and more importantly to help people who are doing their family history, to find their ancestors to help complete their family tree for themselves and their future family. We are also in this to make sure that people who have passed on have something to show they were here, their life was important and they are remembered..........When we post a memorial or a photo we go to the cemetery they are listed in and make POSITIVELY SURE they are where they are listed. So many times we have photographed someone's headstone only to find out they are listed in the wrong cemetery. If someone lives out of town, state, or even the country and go to the cemetery that their loved one's are listed in, only to be disappointed because they can't find their stone anywhere. We have also noticed that sometimes even the obituary is wrong, so we never list someone until we have gone to the cemetery and checked it out for ourselves. We take a lot of pride in what we are doing and it is important to us that we do it right. When we get an e-mail or message of thanks it makes all our hard, but very rewarding work, worth it........

|Angelia Roberson||RE: Charles M. and C.M. Jenkins|
I am not closely related to this family and was just following up on some research for a peripheral line.
CSA records are inconclusive. They list him as Charles M, Chas, Chas M and C M. The CSA stone was obtained in 1946, with the date of June 21, 1899 and sent to his son John L. Given the amount of time that passed between death and stone, that date could be in error or the transcription incorrect.
Unsourced online trees give date of death as June 21, 1898. Is it possible the inscription is 98 instead of 88? Would the cemetery office have additional detail?
Still looking for an obituary or death record that might tie things together.
I will let you know if I happen to find something that helps.

I posted a pic of Wm "Lee" and Lula with Lee's half-sister, Lula Bishop Wheeler, on Lee's memorial if y'all would like to see them. Also if you would like to connect Lee to his family's memorials I've listed them below.

|Kandi Lard||Webb Family|
Thank you so very much for the wonderful pictures of the Webb Family. It is much appreciated !!
|A Derifield||Michael Alex Steward|
It's done. Thank you again for doing this. It is much appreciated.
|Leilani Oliver Chung||SO VERY THANKFUL|
I can't even begin to tell you how thankful I am that you have fulfilled my request. I have waited a long time for this. Tom Landreth still has a surviving son alive who is 92 years old and going downhill. He lives in California and very much wanted to go visit his father's grave before he passes. No one ever thought about taking pictures of the tombstones in the past. So for our Uncle Bud, I am grateful that you were able to fulfill this before it was too late for him. Now he will be able to at least see a picture of his father's tombstone and find some peace. God Bless You!
|Katie Pearl||Luther Dowell|
Thank you so much for your help in providing the photo of Luther Dowell's gravestone. I appreciate your part in this worthwhile project.
Thank you for your time and effort in locating and photographing one of our Veteran's markers. Thank you for helping me honor his memory.

Thank you so much for the photo. We are really confused on the parents name but the other family Ina and children are correct. Thank you again I guess I will have to do some more research.
