Hi Marty,
Thanks for the info. My grandfather was Johnny Dillard Sr, he passed away in 1996. He was married to Edith Mae Dawsey, she passed away 1999. Her father was William Whitfield Dawsey and her mother was Winnie Mae Kenmar(deceased 1980). I remember as a child we would often go down to visit my great-grandma Winnie down in Pearlington. The only thing I can find about Winnie Mae Kenmar is that her mother was Mary Eroni Kenmar. I assume this is her married name, but I don't know Mary Eroni's maiden name. I know they are buried in Turtleskin Cemetary. I too am from Picayune, but currently stationed in Texas with the U.S. Coast Guard. My parents are Jerry & Margaret Lee, who live out in the Benville community.

This is all the info I have on the Dawseys. I think it's pretty accurate, or as accurate as my mom can remember. But I haven't been able to find anything about the Kenmar name. Perhaps the gravestones are misspelled and it actually is Kenmore???

Any ideas?
