RE: Annie Hodges
Hi Linda,

Nancy Lynn gave me the Hodges family bible that belonged to Henry Kelley Hodges and Anne Chase Greenleaf, which is how their names were spelled in it. Thought I would change her name on FindaGrave and if there were any questions I would "quote" the bible.

Good to hear from you. Sorry to hear about Bud and Leewynn's house, didn't see Leewynn when we were on the coast last week, but we did visit with Bud.

Keep in touch,

RE: Wm L Berry
Linda, thank you many times over for all you have done for findagrave. I just happened to find out about Isabel Swilley Berry by contacting her son, Colon Edward Berry who is 84, sharp as a tack, and is living in Lumberton, MS. He gave me the correct information. He admitted that he had heard of another wife for Wm L Berry prior to Isabel, but did not have any information on her nor could he confirm that such a marriage even took place. That could have been Daisy. The children of Wm L Berry are from the union with Isabel. They are James Howard Berry, Sr; William Larry Berry (both deceased); and Colon Berry. He said that there was an infant son buried there next to his mother but a marker was never erected. His name was Willie Steve. He was just about a month old and his mother died about a month after the baby.

Matthew Fairley #92200334
Hi Linda
Researching there is a small article says Matthew is buried in Old Homestead Cemetery which is now Fairley- Herrington Cemetery. His baby daughter it's said was buried there first. You may want to Check her memorial and then the cemeteries information. Let me know what you think.

RE: Goff
Hi Linda
Could you please send me the Find A Grave# for the errant photo. And I will remove it.
Findagrave was having issues when I did some photos and several of my photos went to other memorials. I had no idea where they landed, so I wait for messages, like yours, so the photos can be deleted.

Thanks for your help

Sam Davis Obit
I don't know anything about maintaining find-a-grave, but here is obit for Samuel Davis.

 Judge Samuel Davis

The Christian Advocate clipping, New Orleans, Louisiana, January 1869

Judge Samuel Davis died December 26, 1868 at his residence near Americus, Jackson County, Miss., aged seventy three years, eight months, fifteen days. Judge Davis was born in Bryant County, Georgia on April 11, 1795, the son of George Davis and Elizabeth Lanier.
In 1811, while in the vigor of youth, Judge Davis moved to the community then known as Pascagoula Parish, Louisiana Territory, where he spent his long and useful life.
On February 1, 1821, he married Miss Susanna Goff, with whom he lived in peace and happiness until his death, and who now, in age and in widowhood, moans her bereavement.
In 1826, Brother Davis embraced religion and the year following cast his lot with the people of God by uniting with the Methodist Episcopal Church. From that time, during the remainder of his life, he walked before God with a pure heart and willing mind, serving the church, as occasion required, either as class leader, steward or Sabbath school superintendent. When possible, his seat was filled in the church, and the minister always met a hearty welcome at his house. By his Christian bearing and upright course among men, he gained the entire confidence of his fellow citizens, and received positions of trust and profit at their hands. Having the entire satisfaction of his numerous friends, discharged the duty of the office of Clerk of the Circuit of the Probate Court for twenty years, commencing in 1833. He was afterward elected Probate Judge and occupied that important position eleven years before his death.
No man had more friends or stood higher as an active and useful citizen as Judge Davis. The sickness with which he died was protracted for many months, and his suffering was great, but he bore it all with patience and could say to the last, the will of the Lord be done. Time and again he expressed his willingness to die. He was anxious to depart and be with Christ.
While lying on his bed languishing, being unable to sit up, he would frequently request that the songs of Zion be sung, sometimes singing himself, and often rejoice in the love of God. As the disease advanced, his mind became impaired, and for some weeks before his death, he was exceedingly flighty, but no cloud for a moment ever intervened between him and his God. On the 26th of December his earthly course was finished. He breathed out his life in perfect peace and died in the arms of Jesus. His aged companion, eight children, fifty three grandchildren, and four great grandchildren are left to moan their loss, but they sorrow not as those who have no hope. A.F. Jones
