Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been tracing my family tree for 18 years starting in the 8th grade. I have traced my lineage all the way back to the 1790's with my great-great-great-great grandfather being born in Africa. After coming from Virginia and South Carolina my family settled in Winston, Noxubee, and Kemper Counties in Mississippi, particularly the Fearn Springs, Mashulaville, Gholson, and Preston Communities. The surnames that I am tracing are Bragg, Clay, Mathews, Anderson, Beasley, Smith, Liddell, Stewart, Holmes, Jones, Cockrell, Hickman, and McDonald.

McDonalds - Ridley Hill
I am a volunteer photographer for Find A Grave and just finished documenting Ridley Hill. I am assuming you added George and Emma McDonald from records as their date of births do not match the stones. I had added them but I went back and deleted mine. I wanted to tell you that I have added a lot more McDonalds to Ridley Hill in Madison, MS as I see your family includes McDonalds. If I can assist in any way, please let me know.

Harry & Hattie Reed Crockett
I've been looking for information on these gg grandparents. thank for posting dates of birth and death. do you by chance have death certificates? are they at Winston County? I haven't found them in Jackson. would you share documents you have on them? and on Calvin Hunt, who I believe was Harry's uncle.

Hickman and Anderson surnames in Louisville
Hi Vince Braggs,

I am sure we have met on Our Black Ancestry facebook page. We must connect soon.
Our paths have crossed again.

RE: Alexander Cemetery
It is very near the Oktibbeha county line about half a mile east of Hwy 25 off of Curtis Hammill Road. We sent the GPS coordinates to Find A Grave but it probably take a few days for them to enter it.

Alexander Cemetery
Hi there, we wanted to let you know that we found Alexander Cemetery in Winston Co. today and have uploaded all the photos we took. There are several funeral markers and stones we could not make out but added them as Unknown. If you know anyone in this cemetery or anyone who knows who may be buried here let us know.......pam and teresa

RE: Mt Sinai
That's what we thought about Mt. Sinai but we haven't had any luck getting Find A Grave to delete the Macedonia Cemetery in Winston that has no memorials. Or even combining it with Mt. Sinai.
Haven't heard of Forest Hill or Eiland Cemetery.

Thanks for your help.

Mt Sinai
When Pam & I did Mt Sinai there were a few memorials that you had added that were across the road from the church. So we put everyone on both sides of Hwy 397 in Mt Sinai. According to the topo map the cemetery across the road from the church is labeled as Macedonia Cemetery. Macedonia Cemetery is on Find A Grave with no entries. I wonder if we should put the memorials that are across the road from the church into Macedonia Cemetery? What do you think?

RE: Ruff Cemetery
you can add find a grave memorials for others buried there even if their grave is unmarked. I have lots of pictures of graves at Ruff cemetery that are unreadable or nothing written. and I'm trying to find more about great grandparents who I think are buried there - based on an elderly man's recollection. Lewis Walker (abt 1860 to sometime between 1935-1949) and Susie Johnson (abt 1861 to 1920s)

RE: Old Cannie M.B. Cemetery
Well, from what I understand there is an Oak Grove #1 an Oak Grove #2 and then this abandoned one that we named Cannie but are trying to get it changed to OLD Oak Grove #2 so there are actually 3 in all..............I tried to find an obit for Janie Triplett who died in 1970 to make sure what the name of the cemetery actually is for sure, with no luck.........

Old Cannie M.B. Cemetery
Vince, we wanted to let you know that with the help of a man named David Holder we have located a number of cemeteries both black and white in Winston Co. One of them you may not have heard of, we listed it on F.A.G. as Old Cannie but have since then found out it may be Oak Grove #2. It has a number of people buried there. Some with stones and some with unreadable FHM's........The latest one buried there is a Janie Triplett who died in 1970 which really surprised us given how it is in the middle of the woods and very grown up.....anyway, we thought you might want to take a look at the people listed there and see if you know of any of them or their families. Anything you can add or correct will be appreciated.......God Bless, pam and teresa
