Bio Photo Retired photographer and studio owner in Monroe, Louisiana. Living in the Drew Community, Louisiana, claiming Tioga, Louisiana as my home town.
It only took me sixty some odd years to finally get interested in my family's history. Thanks to the work done by my Mother, Eunice Lee Raulins Smith, I had a starting place.
My father's family were Smith,Gates, Buckelew, Brian and Rogillio, (heavy in the Rapides, Grant, and Winn Parishes in Louisiana). My mother's family were Lee, Raulins, Gatlin, and Cupit (heavy in the Franklin and Wilkinson Counties of Mississippi).

RE: Jamsey Sophia Rawlins Neyland
Thanks for the reply. So have you been to the McCrain cemetery? I have some info regarding the location that has it located at Section 39,T 3 N,R2W on the Wilkinson Platte map and the link you sent has T3N_R1W (not R2W) so not sure which is correct. Two other sites have the GPS location for the McCrain Cemetery as: 31.182500,-91.194722. (This is not where I went in 2015 but is close to it.)I plan to go there in the spring of 2018 to look for it. Google sent me to the McCearley Cemetery at GPS location of: 31.182370,-91.192783 which was not what I was looking for. They have the McCrain Cemetery at the McCearley Cemetery location which is wrong! Then there is another cemetery site that shows the GPS location as: 311057N/0911141W which doesn't match any of the others! I really need to find someone that's been there so I don't waist time running all over Wilkinson County trying to fine the correct location. So please advise. Thanks, Jan McGlaughlin

Thanks for the email. The picture I have is the one with her holding the guitar which you have as well. Have you been to her grave site? I am coming back there in the spring of 2018 and will be trying to find it. Any info you have would be helpful. I went to Wilkinson County Ms. looking for the cemetery in 2015 but was not able to find it. I know it is near the Buffalo River. I have some GPS info but not sure exactly where it is. If you have been there and can advise me the exact location that would be great.

J. B. Rawlins is buried in Section 1 Lot 141 at Magnolia. He has no headstone so I posted a photo of the lot.
