Should have been Augustus Parker. Moses,Daniel & Daniel's brother Elder John Parker started the Turnbull Primitve Baptist Church where (you guessed it) Eli Tidwell's family and probably Edmund Sr.'s family went to church at. That would make John's great-grandson Quannah Parker my 9th or 10th great cousin. Tim

Shirley, have you guessed my paternal 3rd great yet. Also,your request for photos of Eli Benjamin Tidwell, Winniford Parker Tidwell & their son Reed Tidwell has alredy been taken. Go to the Tidwell Cem.;Bon Aqua,TN with 6 internments. Someone has combined that one with the one at Bucksnort.They are miles apart from each other. And if you guess my paternal 3rd great,then you will know Winniford's grandparents. Her father was William Johnson (Buck) Parker (burial unknown). Your gameshow host Tim

RE: 3rd
Shirley, that I knew. I was just testing your knowledge of my Paternal 3rd, think of Parker's Creek area. I saw 3rd great-grandfather on several census years with Edmund Sr.

RE: Richard
Thanks,that must be the one buried at Fountain Creek Cem.;Maury Co.,TN. On my paperwork,I didn't notice that I had Robert Sr. written underneath Richard III.Robert & Edmund Sr. were brothers,Robert being my 5th great. Do you know of Jana Johns? She has put a lot of our Tidwell info. on the internet. Can you guess my paternal 3rd great-grandparents? Tim

RE: Richard
Alright,finally home,the life of a cola vendor.I wish that you could look up Richard Tidwell b.1774-d.1863 (mem. no. 8985764), Fountain Creek Cem.;Culleoka,Maury Co.,Tn. Website,hey cuz, says he is a son of Richard Tidwell III & Rachel Helms. Brother to my 4th great Levi Tidwell, Eli's father. Larry's father,L.C., went to that area, didn't mention Richard,but met some black Tidwells. Cemetery had those tall white tombstones,which means well to do folks. I believe they were descended from slaves that Richard had. Do you already know of him?

RE: Thanks
You are welcome Shirley, you know that Elizabeth McNeil was a cousin to my great-grandmother Elizabeth 'Liza' McNeil. Both women married Eli Joseph Tidwell, my great-grandfather.I think I have already told you that one, I have been going to work early these days ( 4am ),so my memory on all these texts is slowing down. The Roberts Cem. Elizabeth had a 1st husband named Isom Roberts. He's not listed anywhere. Elizabeth's grandson says he is buried at Taylor Cem.; Williamson Co.TN. When I get home I'll ask you an lookup if you will.

Shirley,also most of the cemeteries in Fairview,TN (Williamson Co.) have a lot of people related to me that are buried there,last names:Sullivan,Jones,Mangrum,McNeil,Lampley,Bradford,Beard,Ivey,Hughes & of course Tidwell. This book has a lot of family names in it. Also,I have a book entitled "The Tarkingtons of Tennessee-The Geneaology of John G. Tarkington". He was one of my 3rd great-grandfathers. He is buried at Darden Cem.,Hickman Co.,TN

RE: Thanks
Shirley,I will look for Mr.Richards tombstone later today (naturally, it will be in the hottest part of the day).I don't mind taking these photos. I live very close to a lot of these cemeteries around here,including: Lyles, Wrigley Methodist, Memory Gardens, Hilltop, Missionary Baptist, Bon Aqua Church Of Christ, Bon Aqua Methodist, Martin, both Gossett's, all the Tidwell's, Parker and many more. Tell me if I am wrong,but do you come out of Isaiah Tidwell's line. He was the oldest child of Edmond Tidwell,Sr. He moved to Texas I believe?

RE: Hello, Tidwell
Hello Shirley,I will have to call Larry to find out his e-mail address. Truthfully,I don't think he keeps up with his findAgrave account much. That book is not available to purchase anymore. He had to pay the costs upfront. He plans on putting out another book in 3 years or so when he retires,he's a police officer in Houston,TX (he is under 60 years of age). If you have any questions that you would like answered about Eli Tidwell's descendants, just let me know, I have the book. See you later, cuz. Tim

Andrew & Eli Joseph
Shirley it is then, that Andrew & Eli Joseph were brothers. I accidentally sent an edit to the originator of Andrew's page suggesting Eli Joseph was his father. I have since sent 2 messages asking them to correct this, they haven't yet. Their brother Sherman Tidwell is buried at one of the Jones Cemeteries in Williamson Co.,TN. Their sister Sirena Ann Tidwell married Neless McNeal (#61427466). He is buried at Allison Cem.;Davidson Co.,TN. She's not listed on findAgrave. I will have to go there one day. Their father Eli Wilson (Wiltz)Tidwell had a second wife, Mary Aldridge. They had 5 children: Mary Ann Tidwell; Mill Hindricks Tidwell; W.J. Aldridge Tidwell born 1870 in Williamson Co.,TN (step-son,which would suggest Mary Aldridge was married before). He married Maggie Hays Dec.15,1885 in Williamson Co.,TN.;Levi B.Tidwell born 1878 and Charles Tidwell born 1879. None of those are listed on findAgrave,nor are the two wives. My mother died 5-10-2015. A lot of health problems. Anytime you want to know some info.,let me know, glad to help a cousin.

RE: Thanks
You are welcome. It was no hassle. I enjoy taking photographs for others. I noticed on your bio that one of the surnames you are researching is Higgs. I just added some Higgs names tonight in the Salt Lake Cemetery, located not far from where Mary Brady is buried. Coincidence?

RE: Hello Helen
you are quite welcome. I do this to keep my mind occupied and to have quite time. It is so neat to go to a new cemetery and photo the stones and to look for information on the family for others.
You see I am from California and have only touched the surface of the research that i have there. If it wasn't for people there doing the same thing I am doing, I wouldn't have the connections that i have. So I am working to get all the cemeteries in Parker County photod and put on findagrave for others.
