Herring, Herrin, Simmons, Jones of Hattiesburg

Surnames: Herring, Herrin, Simmons, Jones
In 1920 & 1930, Mary Edna (a/k/a Edna) Jones was living with her sister's family in Hattiesburg - Alice Ophelia Jones & Thomas Jefferson Herring, who married on 11/6/1906. Sister, Zulka (a/k/a Zula) was also living with the Herrings and Edna.

The three sisters worked in a department store in Hattiesburg.

Would like to know which cemetery they are buried in and if anyone has photos of their headstones. Alice Herring/Herrin (d aft. 1963) and Zulika Jones (d July 1967) died in Hattisburg.
Zulika never married.

Their sister, Edna, married a Mr. Simmons bet. 1930-1955 and moved to Houston, where she died in a fire. Was her body brought back to Hattiesburg or to DeSoto, Clarke County, where her parents and other siblings were buried buried? Are there any obits for these folks or their spouses?

Update - Mary Edna Simmons did not die in a fire, but died of a heart attack, at home, in Baytown, TX in 1956. She is buried in Memory Gardens, Baytown, TX.

Thank you. I didn't have any of this info. The two women are my Great Aunts, Zulika and Alice Ophelia Jones. Ophelia married Herrin.

Laurene, my great grandfather was John Wesley Herring, brother of Thomas Jefferson Herring. I've been researching their names for about a year now and have not been able to determine who their father and mother were. Would you have this information? Many thanks for your help.

Right you are. Thomas Jefferson is John Wesley's son. Don't know why I confused that. My grandmother Melissa Estelle was John Wesley's daughter. She married PG Tate and lived in Meridian. I'm hoping to find the parents of John Wesley. Would you have any information on him? Thanks again.

From my online research, which should be verified, I have S. John Herring, b 1826 in SC and Jenny, b 1834 AL, as his parents.

They had 7 children.

I have S. John's parents as William and Sarah. They had 9 children. Email me and I'll give you sources. Laurene
