William M. Courtney
searching for the burial site of a Great Great Grandfather William
M. Courtney who was married to Mollie Spivey Courtney buried in the
New Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery of Neshoba County. A Death
Certificate has been ordered for Mollie yet I was delighted to find
the Internet article that listed relations and ‘Submitted by Pam’.
Is there anyway you may know how to contact ‘Pam’ to see if she
knows the location of William M Courtney’s burial? Per a
granddaughter’s recollection of stories she had heard, he passed
away a year prior to Mollie from a gunshot wound. The story is told
he was a lawman around 1900 in the Philadelphia MS area and did not
die from a wound to the head. The bullet was not removed; however it
is believed it killed him years later. (Family story) I was simply
curious if he could be buried in the cemetery without a grave
I live in Macon, GA and am unable to travel to Neshoba county. I'm
looking for documentation on my McCraw family. My mother, Mollie
McCraw Penrod, lost all of her documents during Katrina and I'm
trying to give her some of it back.
My grandfather William David McCraw was born 6 July 1901 in Nashoba
to David Allen and Emily Arlene Smith McCraw.
I know Emily died before the 1910 census and David Allen married
Any information would be appreciated.

I am trying to find any
information about my great uncle George H Canavello who is listed as
a member of Woods Mississippi Calvary in another source He was from
Mobile AL. I do not know why he enlisted in Mississippi as his older
