Tombstone Tuesday: Eliza Jane Burnett Ramsey

Eliza Jane Burnett Ramsey has been one of my elusive ancestors. She is my maternal great grandmother, the mother of Mary Lavenia Ramsey Coon. The progenitor of the Burnett family was John Burnett from St. Nicholas Parish, Aberdeen, Scotland.

Eliza Jane Ramsey is buried in the Wingo Family Cemetery in Pike County, Mississippi. Wingo Cemetery is located on county Hi-way 93, about 4 miles south of Pricedale, Mississippi, on the east side of the road. There are eleven markers in the cemetery and three unmarked graves. Jane died September 9, 1933 at the age of seventy-nine. She was seventy-five years old on the 1930 Pike County Census living with her son and his family. Eliza Jane Burnett was born July 20, 1854 in Pike County, Mississippi.  Ace was her husband of fifty-years is buried along beside her. 

The headstone for Ace and Jane is a simple long rectangle headstone. I wonder if their oldest daughter Mary Lavenia could be buried in an unmarked grave there with them.
