Linking h/w
Portia,

Would you kindly consider linking two memorials of which you are the manager?

They are: Robert McCullough Smith Sr
53258381
and Margaret Serena (Pharr) Smith
53258501

They were husband and wife, but their memorials do not link to each other. (They are each linked to one of their children, Martha Caroline (Smith) Hill, but not to each other.)

Regards,
Robert ("Digger")

James R Howard
Portia,
We had spoke once before about the Howards. I was wondering if you know what the R in James R. Howards name stood for? Thomas's son/Nathans father. Thank You.

RE: Joe Bennett
Thanks for your prompt reply. We have determined it is not the same Joe Bennett in our class. Thanks for all the work you do.

Joe Bennett
Portia,
I am researching members of my graduating class of 1968. I came across Joe Bennett's death. We had a Joe Bennett in our graduating class. I am doing a memorial page for our deceased graduates for our 50th class reunion. I need to confirm if this is the same Joe in our class. I couldn't tell from his obituary if he was in our class. Since you created his memorial, I thought you might know. You can send me a private email with any details of how he died, etc. at cjmdigby@comcast.net.

Thank you for any help.

My great grandfather is James Hard Bennett and I have been looking for his Father and Mother. James Hard Bennett was born in Duck Hill Miss. in 1873. His father is suppose to be Solomon Calvin Bennett and His Mother is suppose to be Sarah Sutton of Carrol County Mississippi (now Montgomery County). any help would be deeply appreciated!!!

John Lancaster
Hi. I added his headstone today. While I was out there I also took a pic of Elizabeth Lancaster. I wish I could have gotten the dates but it is over half way buried in the ground.

Lucille Pentecost #67230666
I strongly believe she was the daughter of the senior Albert Louis Pentecost #35795662 &
Nettie Lee Travis Pentecost #35795586 as she indicated on the 1910 census that she had had two children with only one living (Albert Louis Pentecost, jr plus the fact his tombstone matches hers. But I have no proof. I don't know what B & D records exist in Sunflower County, MS for that time period. I know the state hadn't started keeping death records yet. Are they all buried in the same plot?

Here is his wife: 106936817 RE your note I believe he's buried next to her. I took a 2nd look at site & there is a space but no stone. If you have info on him I will add to a list I'm compiling so that I can check against IOOF burial list. It has been tied up w/volunteers from new cem assoc trying to computerize for almost 2 yrs. I can't help as they don't want the books taken out of office & I could only do working from my home - anyway, will put him & any detail you might have on a 'look see' basis - but I believe we're safe to assume he is in IOOF Gwood.
