Sheryl Smith
Thornton Cemetery-Giles, TN
My name is Sheryl Blankenship Smith I would like to know the location of the Thornton Cemetery which you so kindly listed in Giles County. You stated that although there were markers in 1980 now or at the time you listed your site there were none left. I would greatly appreciate knowing the site as I am a Giles Co., Thornton ancestor and have Great Great Grandparents that should be buried there. Most should be in the Elkton area possibly some in the BeeSpring Cemetery area. Would love to hear from you Thank you for your help in advance,

RE: Thank you
You are welcome. I have found many of the families of my wife and me by using this site. To me, family is what life is about. Where would we be without family. I enjoy going to cemeteries to take photos and then put them on this site so people cand find family. Have a great life.

John Huntington
I walked the Bigler Cemetery this weekend and didn't see any evidence for J. Huntington. The cemetery is small, set on a hill in an area that once was rural, but today is the setting for large, upscale homes. The grass was high, and many stones have fallen, becoming lost under decades of sediment. so it's possible that J. Huntington is there, waiting to be discovered. Wish I had better news for you.

RE: Hopkins Eastland Cemetery
Hello David,
I am going to try to find the Hopkins Eastland cemetery today to visit my family's graves. I think I found the cemtery on the map from your directions. From what I understand it is on the little farm lane named Shamrock Lane right behind the shed behind the brick house. Thank you once again for the information. Jack Eslick

Hopkins Eastland Cemetery
I noticed you had recently visited the Hopkins Eastland Cemetery and made photos of some of the stones. I have Eastland and Eslick family buried there and have tried to visit but I have not been able to find the cemetery in the past. Could you tell me where it is located? Thank you very much, Jack Eslick

Mary Addington
You are welcome. If I can be of further assistance in the Guntersville area, please feel free to contact me. I have also added a memorial for Robert O'Dell Addington and my husband attached his headstone photo. I don't know if he is your relative or not. He is buried next to Mary Addington. There is a notation in my cemetery book for Robert stating " WWI ". I don't know if that means he died in WWI or if he was a WWI veteran. Good luck in your research.

RE: Lydia Sheffield Bolin
Hi David,
She was my 4th great-grandmother. According to information from descendants in St. Clair, AL, that is her date of death. Thomas Cotton Bowlin didn't survive the Civil War, but to my knowledge she did. I do not know if she has a marker or what sort it might be. The information I found online on St. Clair cemeteries lists only some of the grave markers in certain cemeteries. She is buried with some of her daughter's family members. It says Lydia Sheffield b. 1800 according to the information online. I have no idea why she was buried as a Sheffield and not a Bowlin but she is in the company of family members and none of the other Lydia Sheffield or Bowlins are born in 1800 but her. I wondered why she wasn't buried with Thomas Cotton Bowlin in the Ashville City Cemetery, as her son Lafayette and other family members were.

I've been to Ashville once on a fact-finding mission but didn't have time to visit cemeteries. I hope to go back in the near future and visit Hopewell cemetery. I'll keep you posted.
Best regards,

Jimmie Bowen
David, thank you for your kind words about the Wood Family Cemetery in Heard County, Georgia. Sadly, I did not survey the cemetery; Judy Kilgore did. I found the information on the internet, and have communicated with Ms. Kilgore. She took the picture of the Cemetery.

Jimmie Bowen was the first wife of my great-great grandfather Walter Rufus Wood. They had two children: Roy Rufus Wood and Myrtle Maud Wood. Myrtle Maud rests near her parents. I don't remember where Roy Rufus Wood is, but believe he is in Randolph County, Alabama.

I have included Jimmie Bowen's parents in my family tree. There is a wonderful "biography" of her mother here in findagrave.

Thank you for letting me know that the posting of the Wood Family Cemetery was appreciated.

Best wishes,
Sherry Thompson Catron
