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.

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.)

Regards, Kathleen Brackeen-Putnam

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

Mary is not the wife of Stanley Q. Kelley, she is his sister.
