  2. I have a family cemetery located in Jefferson Co., MS, just south of Alcorn College. It is on the grounds of a hunt club on private property. The owners are very hesitant to give me access to the cemetery. What are my legal rights? and do I have to go get the Sheriff to access this cemetery? I am also trying to get it on the historic register. My 4th and 3rd Great Grandfather are buried here. They are one of the founders of the Bethal Presbyterian Church in Rodney, MS The church is on the national historic register. The cemetery is known as the Compton/Hubbard Cemetery. It is also on Find-a-Grave.

    What do I need to do to get access?

  3. I was looking through the indexes and I saw this, “202B 19 WILIE JANE 60 NC pg0202b.txt” How do I go about actually viewing this? Thank you!

  4. Wasn’t the cave in on the banks of the river in 1888 and not 1883? My grandfather lost his life in the cave in in 1888. His name was Peyton Harrison and he died around October 15th-16th. His body was found later in November. Still looking for who his parents are.

  5. I am trying to find out how my family and I can visit a cemetery that is located in Mississippi. The research I have done shows it to be on private land, I am not sure how to find out who owns this land to obtain permission to get a one time access. Would really mean lot to my family and I. This is what I have found:….The old McGehee-White Family Cemetery is located about 6 miles West of Como on Harry Taylor Road. It is located in section 33, Township 6, Range 8 in Panola County, off the road, in the woods, on private property.

  6. I have several questions regarding a couple of my family ancestors that I have traced back to Lawrence County but I have hit a brick wall and was wondering if someone could please help me. First, and probably most interestingly, my great-great-grandfather was Mr. Needum Pink (or Pinkney) Lambert, a retired Lawrence County farmer. He was born in 1885 in Monticello, Mississippi & died in September 1961, due to a shotgun wound. I have found some articles on Newspapers.com that tell me that they arrested a man named Samuel King for the shooting, but I can not find out whatever came of the case. Also, I have found proof that Mr. Pink Lambert was married to a Mrs. Martha Neal, who was also married to Mr. Samuel King. Mr. Pink Lambert also married Mrs. Martha Neal’s sister, Mrs. Susie Neal. I see newspaper article’s that say that the “Neal” family was a very well-known family in Lawrence County at that time, but I do not know why. Also, my great-grandmother was named Ruby Lambert. Mrs. Ruby Lambert married my great-grandfather Olan King and after his death, she married a Mr. Frank Costellanos. I have spoke to some of the family on the Lambert side, and they told me that they have always been told that Mrs. Ruby Lambert and her mother, Mrs. Susie Lambert, were Native American’s and did not have birth certificates due to being born at home by midwife. I know this is probably alot to ask for, but I would really appreciate any help you could offer. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thank You,
    Wesley King
    P.S. Also, if you notice, my last name is “King” so that makes the story between Mr. Lambert and Mr. King even more interesting to me.
