Am looking for any info on the Wilbourn Turner Crenshaw family that lived at Millican. I think some of them are buried at Steep Hollow & some are at Peach Creek & at the Bryan City Cemetery. This is my greatgrandfather on my father's side. I've been searching for about 10 years. I live in Mississippi & am disabled so it's hard on me to make long trips. There are only 2 sisters 7 a couple of cousins,they know even less than I do. Please help me if you can it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Pat

T. married Emma Wyatt.Do you know if they are buried at Bryan City Cemetery along with my grandfather, Thurman B. Crenshaw,or is he buried some place else. Also there was another child of Thurman's besides my father & my uncle.His name was Aaron Bertis. All I have on him is a birth date.Didn't even know he existed till I found it on the internet.He was born in May 1933. Thanks , pat

Hi. Just checking on some of my info & have a quick question. Is there a Laurie Crenshaw buried at Bethel? She was married to my great-great-great-great-grandfather, S.P. Crenshaw. Also does anyone have the name of the child who died possibly around 1900,daughter of W.T. & Emma Wyatt Crenshaw? Am not sure of the burial places of any of the people named, so any help would be appreciated. Also,if anyone has info on Aaron Burtis Crenshaw,b.May 1933,pleas let me know.Don't know if he died or was adopted. Pat

I saw this old post and was wondering if you are still looking for information regarding the Crenshaw family. W.T. Crenshaw is my great-great-grandfather and I have a little information about Samuel and Laurie and more about W.T and Emma and their children. I also have scans of obituaries for W.T. and Emma as well as obituaries and pictures for some of the children.
