Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Mississippi Delta country girl, born & raised (except for a 10-year stint in the Dallas-area). A couple of years ago I decided to scan both of my late grandmothers' old photo albums & post the pics on my facebook page…WOW…did I evermore get some activity…cuzzins from all over contacted me asking, "Where did you get that photo of ____?...I used to see that same photo at my Grandma's house when I was a kid," etc.

Several of my newly-found cuzzins were seasoned geneology buffs & got me started..…now I'm ADDICTED!!! Last year one of the cuzzins suggested Find-A-Grave. I have gained alot of info for my tree & I especially like being able to help other members get photos of their family's final resting places & markers.

When I visit a cemetery to fulfill requests, I usually always take photos of nearby markers & other random if you are a family member of any of the memorials that I add, I will be more than happy to transfer management to you.…please feel free to ask.

Please inform me of any errors/discrepancies that you might find…I'd like for my info to be as accurate as possible.

The flowers in my collection are from my Mom's yard & my yard (she's 87 & we are next-door neighbors).

My permission is granted in advance if you'd like to snag any of my photos..…just credit me please.

Took some pix in Greenwood of Aron tombstones & posted. I don't know that they are any 'better' than yours - just different time period, so if you want any removed just let me know and I will take down. I think you'll be pleased next time you come this way to see how much progress new cemetery assoc has made to cleaning up and improving!

I am looking for information on Dr. Joseph Wiley Copeland Sr. I am building a tree on Ancestry and have conflicting information on who his parents were. Anyone with any source that can help me will be greatly appreciated!

Hi DeeDee,

When I found my uncle and aunt I was thrilled. I noticed you started the posting but it is maintained by Larry Ponder. I called my brother, Larry Ponder, and he had no idea of what I was talking about. We had a good laugh and I e-mailed the Larry Ponder on the posting. I have not heard back from him yet. Do you know anything about him?

Thank you

Grace Vance Flores
Hi DeeDee Bethel,
thanks for posting marker for Anna L Flores.

I'm looking for Grace Vance Flores' marker. Her obituary states she died March 9, 1967 and buried in Fairview Cemetery near Linn. The funeral home providing services was Thweatt Funeral Home in Cleveland.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi Dee Dee,
I saw your flowers on Barney Brown's memorial and wondered if you are related. I'm still researching his family and wanted to connect with you, if you are kin.

Many thanks.

Shaw Cemetery
Hi DeeDee,

I just have a quick question, the picture you have of Shaw Cemetery in Mississippi, where exactly is the cemetery located. My Aunt Rachel and her daughter are both buried there. I will be making a trip soon and would like to stop by if I can get the right location.

Thanks for all that you do!!
