Conner Family Cemetery, Attala County, MS

The banner photo that appears on my blog today shows Conner Cemetery located near Hesterville in Attala County, Mississippi. The historical marker pictured to the left tells the story of the establishment of this old cemetery. Yesterday, I published the first in a series of posts about the Conner family, where I will be using personal family information provided by one of my Texas readers who is a descendant of the Conner family. Also, beginning next week, I will be posting photos of Conner family members' grave stones.

Drane Family of French Camp, Mississippi

The original grave monuments that once marked the grave sites of Colonel James Drane and his wife, Matilda, can be seen at French Camp, Mississippi. The monuments and the Drane family residence were moved to French Camp on the Natchez Trace about 1981 from their original locations nearby.
