Sarah Roberts Barnes~another dear aunt who helped verify our Wascom line and McMillian connections.

Alice Roberts Rushing~yet another dear auntie who indulged an unannounced visit and provided invaluable help with the libraries and cemeteries in Washington Parish.

Bill Roberts~my mother’s first cousin who solved the mystery of McMillan Cemetery and pointed out the unmarked plots of my great grandparents.

Rebekah Woodcock~my sister who chauffeured me around to countless counties and cemeteries throughout south Mississippi.

Clarence Woodcock~his amazing website  cwoodcock.com is an invaluable database for the Woodcock surname.

Edward Breland~has done a fantastic job documenting the William Woodcock, Sr, line.

David Sprinkle~a double cousin of mine without whom I may never have solved the mystery of Ramsey Roberts’ true parentage. He is a veritable gold mine of information on the Whittington, Creel, and Dearman families.

Alice Weber~a Woodcock cousin who has contributed so much to the history of Long Beach, Mississippi, with her book on Allen Cemetery. For ordering information contact Alice directly. She has also begun working on her next book the subject of which is the cemetery at Antioch Baptist Church.
