An Adventure in Mississippi

Tree on Magee propertyWhile in Mississippi a few weeks ago, Reggie, Terry, Barbara, and I had an opportunity to meet lots of new cousins!  While there, we visited several cemeteries so that we would have some digital images of them.  One of our newly discovered cousins, Paulette Pigott Stogner helped us locate a very old cemetery referred to as the Magee Cemetery.  Our 3X and 4X great grandparents are buried there.  Please read about our adventure!  Choose “Adventure in the Magee Cemetery” from the blogroll and enjoy!  Because it is a PDF file, for best viewing after loading the document, please use the page up and page down keys located above/near the number pad.

    Your website is gorgeous and informative. I love the diagrams explaining the descents. Keep up the beautiful work and find my Helms while you are at it.
    Did you know the Hellums also moved to MS ?

    Of all the cemeteries I have been to… and the ones we have encountered as sisters, THIS is the one that really hit me with the most emotion. Even though I couldn’t go back into the thicket with y’all, your pictures are powerful and poignant. I will never forget this trip.
