Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired lawyer in Clarksdale, MS. I'm looking especially for my ancestors with the last names Dodson (MS and TN), Robinson(MS and TN), Davant (NC, GA and TX) and McNeill (MS & TX).

As to transfers, I will transfer a memorial if the person is not kin to me or a special person to me.

If anyone wants to use any of the photos that I post to find-a-grave for or whatever, you have my continuing permission.

I check for edit requests every Tuesday, but you can call my attention to your request by sending me an email.

Cleveland Taylor Johnson

I greatly appreciate the pictures of the headstone, and other information you supplied for Gussie Ruth St.Claire Johnson, the wife of one of my great uncles, Cleveland Taylor Johnson.
Ruth, a high school teacher, who died in 1926 at the age of 52, was interred in the Oakridge Cemetery in Clarksdale, but after searching the names of all buried there I found no trace of Cleveland. I don't know his date of death or place of interment.
I know that this was at a time before you were even born, but do you by chance know anything about Cleveland Taylor Johnson who was a bank examiner for the state?
Thank you.

Headstone Picture for Augustine M Harlow

While doing some research I came across the memorial for Augustine M Harlow, Find A Grave Memorial# 105575646, and noticed that the headstone picture that you posted is for a someone named Lee J Spaggiari. Please remove that picture and post a picture of Augustine Harlow's headstone if you have one. Thanks so much.

RE: Douglas
Did you graduate with Hayden Hall, Rick Anderson, etc.?

I only knew of Davant by name. I knew Louisa and Mony because they went to CHS.

Thanks for your reply. I think a another classmate of mine, Robert Weldon lives in Pittsburgh.

Have a good day!

Hi Jack,

I am a grandson of Etoile and Thurman Douglas. My mother is their daughter, Juanita and my father was Ben Crawford, Jr who died in October of 2009. You probably knew my parents and maybe my grandmother. Anyway, thanks for posting their headstones on Find A Grave. I live in Maryland now and don't get back home much. All of my kids are in Louisiana where they were born.

I knew the Dodson's (Newton's group) and I knew of a Davant Dodson. Is she related to you?
