Genealogy Research Tip:
Although there are numerous sites around the Internet that contain cemetery and genealogical information, newer obituaries associated with specific cemeteries can often be located by using a search engine (Google, Bing, etc.) to search for keywords. For example, "Little Bahala Cemetery John Doe".

After posting those results, I came across several more names, all associated with Ulysses S. Grant. Why had these individuals been missed? The answer lay in my failure to consider the many spelling permutations possible for ‘Ulysses.’ Parents and census enumerators proved highly inventive in rendering the name as Ulepes, Ulissus, Euilas, etc. So..."

Here's one I've not seen before. This old postcard appears to be from the late 1800s, depicting the engine driving the economy, Mississippi Mills in the tall buildings.

Over 1,000 soldiers died..."
On May 14, 1863, General Sherman began the bombardment of the city of Jackson... I recall the terror-stricken flight of thousands of women and children as we streamed along the roads that hot day, with everything we could carry.

We camped in tents on the Pearl River for several weeks.--Thomas Frank Gailor, six-year-old child, future Episcopal Bishop of Tennessee
