(Elizabeth Jones?) Library Staff

I came to Grenada(my birthplace)several days ago to look for the buriel sites of my ancesters. I assumed that the local library would be a good place to start looking for information and to ask questions about directions to certain cemeteries. I was treated anywhere from rudely to condescending. I was assured over and over that there was no Mt. Nebo Church and cemetery in Grenada County, and that I would find it in Carroll County. After several hours of rambiling around different counties from Calhoun to Carroll, we were sent back to Grenada County to find the beautiful Mt. Nebo Church and Cemetery, near Youngs Landing. By the way, the young woman at the courthouse was very friendly and helpful, including printing us a map and marking the route. When we got to Youngs Landing, we ask a young man on a bicycle if he knew where the cemetery was, and he said he didn't, but to follow him and he would lead us to his grandfather who was building a house up the road. We did and the grandfather, Sidney, made a call and found out where it was, and then he and his grandson and little dog jumped in their truck and led us to the site. Thank you, Sidney, so very much. Also, thanks to Willie Reed, at Pryor Funeral Home, in Calhoun City, for directing us to Big Creek, my father's birthplace, and then giving us a marked map showing us the way back to Grenada.

What are you disappointed about. The fact is that some peoples have lived in areas and never really travel around. You as a member of a library staff should have had the wherewithal to do some research on the matter before undertaking the trip. For you to blame others for your failings is off the chart. In this age of modern gimmicks such as computers and gps devices I find it appalling that you would blame others for your ignorance. Stay where you are and leave others alone. I am glad that you found what you were looking for. Next time try the fire dept. or the local police. Burial is spelled with an A.
