Hello Sunlaws! Thanks so much for the link to the wordbook. I have barely scratched the surface of this book, but suffice to say, the author does have my James Best and Harriet Paxton in it with additional tidbits! I can see that this will be most important for me to go through ALL of my collateral surnames in this book. A real goldmine of information.  THANKS SO MUCH.   ;D  Sincerely, patrexjax

Hello alan 14578 and THANK YOU so much for this MI reading. So now I know that in addition to being buried at St. Mary's Cemetery there is apparently an MI.  That is wonderful information and I thank you profusely.  ;D  Most sincerely, patrexjax
