RE: Mattie Denney
I also took pictures of Roy C. Mason - her husband1891-1962 and in an adjacent grave there was a Cora P. Denny. 1893-1926. Would these be of any help? if so I can send to you.

RE: Potts
It is good to work with and talk with a Find A Grave member that has a level head.
I have had contact with several who go nuts over these old graveyards, when trying to get them straight.
I never say that I am 100 percent right, I just try to held others find there families.
If I can help you, just give a call out.

RE: Potts
I would not know if they are the same. I live in North Carolina. I have been to La. doing research on my Gahagan line. One of my gggg uncles married one of the Potts girls. One of their children died at one year old, at Brushy Valley.
The boy was buried at Brushy Valley with the Potts family members. Some of the family there had record of the boy as buried in the Brushy Valley cemetery.
It was told to me that Brushy Valley was a community, and only community in the area, up until the Civil War.
I made the Brushy Valley cemetery site on Find A Grave. I believe the Potts before the Civil War were buried at Brushy Valley. The families at Brushy Valley started moving away about 1867, and the community was all but gone by 1900.
I believe what happen to Brushy Valley cemetery, was what happen to several graveyards here in this county in the 1960s, the graveyards were destroyed to build on, or made fields.

Not knowing, but I would say the Potts cemetery is the Brushy Valley cemetery. I will remove the one on the Brushy Valley site that you have on the Potts site.

I am doing research on the cemetery, but I am going to have to make a trip. Originally the area there was another parish until 1854.

I believe William Potts was buried at Bushy Valley cemetery, Bienville Parish, La. He was living at Brushy Valley at the time of his death.

Brushy Valley was five miles south of Liberty Hill on the Brushy Creek

Hello Ina,
I submitted an edit for Willie Nicholson that was incorrect for her parents. Please ignore. Thanks you.

RE: Benjamin Franklin Kemp
Greetings Mrs. Ina,
Thank you for the speedy reply. Any information (or lack of information) is something. It is a step toward the solution. I have found two BFKs in the area of Claiborne and Bienville. One born in 1849 is buried in Liberty Hill Bienville Parish, the other according to census was born in 1825. I am beginning to think they were uncle and nephew. Again thanks, and if I can be of any assistance to you, I am at your service.

Benjamin Franklin Kemp
Greetings Mrs. Ina, I am doing some ancestry research for a client and I am attempting to locate the grave of Benjamin Franklin Kemp, possibly the husband of Grandmother Almond Kemp. He is not in the records of Gilgal as far as I know. Kemp owned land circa 1860 near the intersection of Old Arcadia and Harris Road on the Webster-Claiborne line. I can't help but think he is buried nearby maybe some small family cemetery. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I really do not know. You may want to ask the person who left flowers maybe she can provide you with some insight.
