Tombstone Tuesday: Would this count?

I don’t have a tombstone picture to post for T. T. but I do have this page from a family Bible, sent to me by my 2nd cousin Glenda:

Bible Record

It lists the death of Ivy Beeman, my grandmother’s grandfather. Flora Geneva Beeman, my “GrandPowell” was daughter of John Wesley Beeman, son of James Ivy Beeman. She married James Toxie Powell, Sr. on 14 August 1914, the same year her youngest sister, Winnie, was born.

“Toxie” was born 24 October 1891, Kemper County, Miss. He was the son of James Randolph Powell, born 15 Nov 1852, died 1 Jan 1933, and his waife Susan (Sarah) Christian Fortson, born12 Jun 1859 died 31 October 1931. Jame randolph Powell was a 32-degree Mason.  His father was Reason Powell.

By the way, I am still looking for the parents of Reason (Reese) POWELL, b. in 1802 in SC, Edgefield county. He was in Alabama in 1832 when he married Anna Gibson/Gipson 17 Feb 1832. They were in Sumter County AL in 1835 poll tax list. They went to Union Parish, LA where Anna must have died. He is back in Sumter County, AL in 1850 census and married to Louisa FOSTER. They are in Lauderdale county Ms in 1860 census. His children were: by Anna, Mary Louise, Christina, and George Washington. By Louisa FOSTER, Nancy Ann, John Aaron Winston, Benjamin F. Henry Harrison, James Randolph, Frances Marion, Josephine, and Thomas Jefferson. I need marriage date and place for Louisa, death date for both. Parents names for both. I will exchange information. Will also exchange info on BEEMAN, FORTSON, and FOSTER.
