My last name Jones and I'm tracing my family history. All I know is that my grandfather Eddie Boyd Jones came from Tippah county Mississippi and ended up in Cotton Lake Bottom, Tipton county Tennessee. It's a possibility we might be kin somehow.

William Blakesley
Thank you so much for posting a photo of Ruby's gravestone. I wanted to provide you with a correction regarding William Blakesley. I am William Blakesley's great-granddaughter and you have him listed as being a WWII vet. You are confusing him with William Blakesley, Jr. Ruby's husband, William, was never in the armed forces. His son, William Blakesley Jr, served in WWII. Also, the picture you have of Ruby and William on their wedding day is incorrect. That is not a picture of William Blakesley. I am not sure who the man in the picture is. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information regarding William.
Kind regards,
Becky Mapes

Dr. William Highland
I've just started tracing my family and I've arrived at Dr. William Highland. I visited Wates cemetery today and located his grave. I noticed you've posted a picture dated 1996 at that location. I'd be very interested to compare notes. Please message me at Thanks.

John Haynes
Hello, I recently learned that John R. Haynes is my great grandfather. He had a brother, W.H. Haynes, and John's father was William Henry Haynes. John also had a son, James E. Owen Haynes (my grandfather). Do I have the right family? I would love to learn more about these ancestors, as I have looked for over 10 years! email me please @!

another Darling family member
I have found on 1860 Carroll Co., MS census BRC (Barney R) and O.F. Darling Barney born 1837 AL and OF born 1838 AL i believe they were Ephriam and Penny's sons also. Barney joined the Carroll County Rifles and never returned from the war. He married Elizabeth Jones in 1859 in Carroll Co., MS and had 1 child James B Darling .

RE: Starnes in Slayden, Ms
Hi Ronnie,
I created memorials for many people in cemeteries for Marshall County, MS. They were created from a cemetery transcription. Most of the info has been correct, though sometimes as people have gathered photos a date may need to be added or corrected. I looked on Ancestry to see if I could pinpoint this family. In 1870 there was a young Henry Starnes w/the correct year of birth in Lafayette, MS & appears there as Wilson Henry in 1900 also with a wife S J Starnes & several children a couple w/the last name of Spence & a couple w/the last name of Starnes. A Sarah J Anderson married a W C Spence in 1873 in Lafayette & the 1900 census says the marriage w/Starnes was in 1888, so possibly children from first marriage. I then did a search for him in Marshall Cty & it brought up a family tree where it has Wilson Henry Starnes who married Sarah J Anderson with the same dates. You might check out Ancestry to go back further & see if they are related. Let me know if I can do anything else to help.
