Great! We ARE cousins, I suppose. Rev Thomas Downs was my 3rd great grandfather, his son William was the father of Willie Ann Downs, who was the mother of my grandfather, Ernest Bishop. (I saw the Rev. Wm who was the brother of Thomas, but it is William the son of Thomas who is my ancestor.)
I would really like to visit that cemetery. If you could send directions to firstname.lastname@example.org
, I would be so grateful. I live in Mississippi, so I won't be coming immediately, but maybe some time in Nov, if I knew how to get to cemetery. So glad to "meet" you!
