Yes. Ms Ethel has a copy of William's will. She also has other information that she has collected. Her main problem was she thought she knew her Coward line but didn't have facts to put it together. Your answering a few questions helped. Also she had never known the name of the mother of Louis and Joseph. We are in Pontotoc Co. and that's next door to Tupelo. I'll be glad to take you to the Old Cypress (Old Covered Wagon) if you have time to visit. She will know where the old gravesite was but I don't know if we can get to it. So many people had small family cemeteries that were never kept up. Old Cypress was plowed through by a dozier when an access road was being built to cut the trees. Something the government contracted out. Ms Ethel's number is 489-4039. If no answer keep trying. She will be so excited to speak with you. I'm not sure what is in Pontotoc City as far as records but Lafayette Co. should have something. There's a very strong geneology society there along with a great library. I'll get back to you about who is in the old cemetery that was destroyed. Tammie
