Very curious. You would, indeed, think that the VA Graves Division would make sure before cranking out a bronze like that.
This is the second Union Vet in my tree that some well-meaning but uninformed descendant has marked as a Confederate. And they always get angry when you tell them the truth! :)
Which daughter are you descended from? I descend through his son, Henry Logan Cain Pippin (1869-1916). Cain Pippin's daughter, Blonnie, was my maternal grandmother. She actually abandoned my mother at the age of two (and she was given up for adoption), along with her older sister Frances, but they reunited with her later in life. I actually knew her throughout my childhood as my "Granny."
Do you live in middle Tennessee or elsewhere?

Do you have any idea who marked the grave of James K. Polk Pippin?
They have him marked as serving in a Confederate unit. The 1st Tennessee Mounted Infantry was Union, and he even received a federal pension. They didn't give those to Confederate soldiers!
Just curious. I think it needs to be remarked and the record corrected.
BTW ... he is my 2hd Great-Grandfather.

Dear G.L. Goolsby,
Thank you for all you have done, are doing and shall do well.
It is done by you as many do here like a drink from the Fresh Water Spring going over the Va. Rt 151 Mountain in Nelson County Va.
Are we kin through the Stratton's which came from Vermont?
Please add me as your friend even if not kin on here at Find A Grave.

PS: Still a quandry in Va. with our Harvie/Harvey name spellings and docs. Harvey was one of the first names to land and the first Born Male of English Decent ( Baby Harvi/Harvey ) at Roanok Colony. Now in what is N.C. at Harvey Point ( CIA) where US Seal Team 6 Trained for Geronimo. They know of the female , Virginia Dare but so far all I have found on the first born male is BABY HARVIE/HARVEY.

Would the James Madison "Matt" Burgess you listed be a relative of James Madison Burgess who married Elizabeth Harris? They were from the Flynn Lick area of Tennessee. Thank you, Nancy Murray

Thank you for pointing out my stupid mistake with his first name. I had "James" and wrote "John." Can I blame it on a senior moment? And I appreiate the more specific birth and death dates. Is he a family member? I'd gladly transfer him. I am related, but not closely.

I appreciate your linking Zollie's memorial to his parents' yesterday. His name is listed as "Zeller" on the 1930 Census, so having your memorial linked will make finding his grave so much easier. Thank you so very much!

I will be happy to delete mine since yours was created before mine. May I ask the kindness of you transfering your memorial to my care, since Olene is my mother-in-law's mother? Thank you for drawing the error to my attention.

I've eliminated the link for Jefferson -- according to my info her father was listed as a James Davis (no further info). I receive links for many sources here on Find A Grave and have no way of knowing how that info came to me. The local Overton County historian shows her father to be James - I can't (at the moment) find a burial place for him to connect/link them. Sorry for the confusion and thank you so much for getting me to take a 2nd look at the data.

|Meadows_Ancestry||RE: Agnes Adcock Meadows Goolsby|
Thank you so much for your prompt reply. I feel like even more a schmuck for waiting so long to respond to your question.
My husband's direct line of Meadows is through Jobe Meadows' son, Charles who married Rachel (MNU by me). I believe Silas was the son of Charles' brother, Skelton.
I would very much like to have a copy of Aggy's Will. I will email you tomorrow. It is so late, (or should I say early), that my eyes are going cross-eyed.

|Meadows_Ancestry||RE: Francis Marian Goolsby|
I'm sorry for the delay in responding to your inquiry. Francis Marian Goolsby did some legal work for my Meador/Meadows family while they were in Jackson County, Tennessee. One thing he did was to assist my husband's 4th great-grandfather, Jobe Meador/Meadows when the widow of my husband's 5th great grandfather, Isham Meador, was trying to obtain his Rev'l War Pension.
I've seen several Jackson County, Tennessee records with F.M. Goolsby's name on them, and I've been able to take away quite a bit of information from them. His wife, Agnes Adcock was married to a Silas Meadows before he was married to her. He actually represented her in court when she was divorcing Silas because he had abused her. I've recently tracked down Silas. He went north to Franklin County, Illinois after the Civil War. I don't suppose you know anything about Aggie's daughter, Harriet, do you?

|Charles Pippin||Nellie Burgess|
I am just thrilled with the work you have done. I have a large database of Pippins and Chaffins and Burgesses and Billingsleys Goolsbys etc, ad infinitum. I have a bit of a problem thought with the listing at Nellie Burgess Chaffin. You have her as being born in Oklahoma up at the top but in the body of the obit is states that she was born in Jackson County. No big thing but it could be confusing. I know where she was born and it doesn't bother me. I am an infrequent contrubutor to FindAGrave so you will see me from time to time. Keep up the good work.

What a lovely photo of Merideth's grave. There is something about your Jackson County cemeteries. The grounds look so very serene and peaceful and beautiful. I live in Texas. Because of the drought, our cemeteries look awful with grass and even trees dying. Even the gravestones are beginning to lean. But I looked at Meredith's gravestone. It's so straight and well cared for even after 80 years. Thank you for your response.
