Louella Rials/Ryals was the daughter of James Calvin Rials and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Odom. I believe they are buried in the Bullock Cemetery also. Louella had a Heart attack and when she walked she dragged one of her legs. She was crossing a old dirt or gravel road one day a car was comming down the road and she could not get out of the way soon enough and was killed by the car. I believe she died in Popularville, MS.

I have a pic of Louella and her 2d husband James Cleveland whitehead. the pic is to large to post here. if u would like a copy please ask. Her Twin Daughters Bonnie Ree Street 14 Jan., 1913 & Mattie Lee Lemmons 14 Jan., 1913 - 22 Feb., 1996 - Both are interred in the Frazier Cemetery, Grant Parish, LA.

not sure if cemetery is located partly in Sanford county or not. I believe her parents: John Cleveland Ryals (the way he spelled it on his wife's death certificate)
and Elizabeth "Lizzie" Odom are also buried in this cemetery. William Ashberry Odom died in the Battle of Perryvile, KY (Civil War) died of wounds he recieved and I believe her mother died in childbirth. (have heard that Elizabeth Odom was raised by the Myrick family)

John Calvin Ryals-Rials-Riles Parents were:
Isaac Rials b. ca 1834 & Mary Sanford b. ca 1826

Louella's brother - Isaac "Bud" and hos wife Bessie M. are buried in Advance Cemetery. Lamar Co., MS
