Bio and Links
Bio Photo Native of northeast Mississippi, living in southern New Jersey for 30+ years. I enjoy finding more "leaves" on my family tree which includes King, McDougal, Fuller, Crane, Brosious and Sims.

Revisiting old cemeteries and looking up new ones is as rewarding to me as knowing a memorial added has helped someone else find their kin.

Please let me know of any corrections or additional info for memorials, thru the "Edit" tab. I will transfer memorials to relatives for their care and prefer to use the Find A Grave guidelines.

Jean, I mistakenly named her mother as "Martha". She was Mary Ann Sanders Botts who died in Franklin County, Alabama 1850. Could you correct her bio? I'm sorry, guess I had one of my mental "glitches" when I gave you that info. Barbara

Find A Grave Memorial# 64190155
Hi Jean. Me again. Since this memorial does not have a picture of the headstone, I'm not sure about the dates. If this is truly John F, the son of Williamson Rogers, and I don't doubt that it is since many siblings are buried in that cemetery, the dates are incorrect. I'm wondering if you picked up the dates from another John, Johnnie A, who is also buried in that cemetery (and I don't know who that John is). The dates are exactly the same. I know that John F Rogers was living in 1920 as his sister Susan was living in the home with him. She was also living with him in 1910 along with a widowed Dave C Arnett who is probably related to John's brother in law, William Calvin Arnett. I have requested a photo of the headstone.

Parents of Benjamin Sooy 1813-1882
Benjamin Sooy was the oldest child of Ebenezer Sooy. Benjamin married Margaret Haunsley in 1856. They did not have any children.
Benjamin was a ship's captain in New Jersey, USA.
Benjamin was the oldest child in a large family. His father, Ebenezer Sooy was also a ship's captain.
Benjamin came from a long line of ships captains going back to Joseph Sooy who was a privateer during the Revolutionary War. The Sooy families came to America from Holland.

RE: Friend or family?
Good deal. Luther would be a 1/2 first cousin to my father and Wanda. Josiah (Joe Si) Brackeen was my great grandfather and the first Fannie Smith was my great grandmother. Thanks for your work on Find A Grave.

Friend or family?
Jean, I've seen your name on several memorials for members of my family but I don't recognize your surname. I'm curious, are you friend or family?
(For a frame of reference, Wanda Brackeen Yelverton was my aunt.)

This Minnie Bell divorced Refus Hopkins and later married Hughie R Cole, so I'm thinking the Minnie Bell buried here may actually be Minnie Bell Moreland who married Refus' brother Benjamin Emsley Hopkins.

Refus later married Abbie Stites who had been a servant in Refus and Minnie's home in the 1920 census. Refus is married to Abbie in the 1930 census and Minnie is married to Hughie and on the same page.

No problem. How are you doing? Coming to MS anytime soon? Didn't know if you still have your mother's house down here or not. Marsha
