William M. Courtney

             I am searching for the burial site of a Great Great Grandfather William M. Courtney who was married to Mollie Spivey Courtney buried in the New Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery of Neshoba County. A Death Certificate has been ordered for Mollie yet I was delighted to find the Internet article that listed relations and ‘Submitted by Pam’.
Is there anyway you may know how to contact ‘Pam’ to see if she knows the location of William M Courtney’s burial? Per a granddaughter’s recollection of stories she had heard, he passed away a year prior to Mollie from a gunshot wound. The story is told he was a lawman around 1900 in the Philadelphia MS area and did not die from a wound to the head. The bullet was not removed; however it is believed it killed him years later. (Family story) I was simply curious if he could be buried in the cemetery without a grave marker?

Robert S. Pearson (R. S. Pearson)
