Amazing Grace

 In the age of the internet, information comes from many different sources.  Above is a photograph of the headstone for the grave of the first child of William Hugh and Ethel Dee Sloan Pennington.   A Find-A-Grave contributor contacted Cousin Bobby Gene about this grave marker that was found in Pine Grove Cemetery in Monroe County, Mississippi.   We knew that there was a child of Hugh and Dee who died as an infant, but the whereabouts of the grave was unknown even to her siblings. Searches for the grave in the past had been unsuccessful.  Until now.  Thanks to the Find-A-Grave contributor, my mother and Aunt Tootsie recently drove to the cemetery and found the grave site.  Aunt Tootsie was able to view the grave of her sister, a grave that once was lost to us but now is found.
