Thanks for your reply. I am hoping to get information from the headstone of my gg grandmother who the family says is buried at Amaziah. Amaziah is listed on the Union site, but from what I have read in the queries it is near Hickory Flat? My grandmother was Isabella Maxey Hood (from Itawamba co). The family says she married again after 1880 to a Simon, Simmons (or maybe it could be Timmons I suppose) and at some point moved to the Hickory Flat area. Not sure what might be on the tombstone. Grandpa Henry died and grandma remarried but she is listed on her tombstone in Marshall co as Rosa Hood. The grandson (who lives in Oregon) saw the grave near ggrandpa's in the late '40s. Great grandpa was Henry Alonzo Hood. Henry's sisters are buried there also. Roxanna Cobb and Anna Banks. It appears their father may have fought for the Union army. It is said he did not return. Which leaves us wondering about gg grandpa Henry, he was born in 1871.
I was born in Winborn, my mother was living with my dad's family and my dad was in the army at the time. My mother's family lived near Hickory Flat. She was a Gregory, but her, her brother and mother lived with her grandparents. That was John Quinn.
My dad's parents were Bertrum and Ella Hood. Thanks, again JMW
