Barb, I just read your post about Thos. L. Bussey.Are you aware he and wife Emily J. are both buried in Durant Cemetery, Durant, Holmes Co., MS ?Listed below are the people with surname "Bussey" that I have been able to locate that are buried in Holmes Co., MS.
I notice the birth date for Emily J. is different from yours.Your post confuses me some, you say Emily Jane was dau of John Middleton Hill and Elizabeth Holland, then you continue to say John M. was son of Abram Bussey.Are you speaking about two different men named John M. ?Is surname Hill or Bussey ?
Will appreciate your letting me know.
