RE: Paul Hansen
Thank you and God bless you. I had several people contact me and said the property was sold and is now private. I have no clue how the name of the cemetery got on there. We didn't put it there unless it popped up as being in his location.
A couple have tried to get info Paul's family and trying to find an obit for me. One of them was able to connect with Paul's son and he did say Uncle Paul was cremated as well as his mother Dorothy but was skeptical about giving more info. hopefully he will contact us or I'll be able to locate his phone /address to contact him.
thank you again,

RE: Allen Cemetery Jackson Co., TN

Thanks for the reply. After I contacted you I tried to contact Find A Grave. Apparently it is a very complicated process which had a page long list of instructions about making corrections. This involves GPS maps and lattitude and longitude numbers among other things. It is much more involved than what I feel able to correct. One can't just send them a message, it has to be done in a fix it thread on the discussion boards. Maybe this is why it has never been changed.

Like you, I have only been to one of the cemeteries. I was at the Allen-Anderson one on Blackburn's Fork Road. The last time I was there was in 2001 and I knew the sign you posted wasn't up at the time. I had thought that maybe it was added later, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Any way, thanks for your input. Maybe I'll try a different approach with Find A Grave.

Allen Cemetery Jackson Co., TN
Thank you for all the work you do to help others.

I'm not even sure if you are the one to contact, but you seem to have posted the most photos here so I thought I would start with you. The photo of the sign ALLEN CEMETERY is being used for the cemetery listed as Allen Cemetery off Hwy 53 in District 15 of Jackson Co.,TN This same photo of the sign is also being used for the cemetery listed as Allen-Anderson Cemetery off Blackburn's Fork Road in District 9 of Jackson Co.

Find A Grave has these two cemeteries shown with the same 34 entries and mapped with the same location. These are actually two different cemeteries. The location shown on the map is for the Rufus W Allen cemetery which was originally called Denton Cemetery.

The entries that include Denton, Allen, Walker, Moss, Purcell etc are in the cemetery with the Allen Sign. It is shown in Larry Mabry's book as Rufus W Allen Cemetery - Denton Cemetery.

The entries for mostly Anderson and Allen are in the Anderson and Allen Cemetery off Blackburn's Fork Road. This cemetery only has a green street marker type sign up that shows Allen-Anderson.

As I said I'm not sure you are the one to ask, but I can't figure out who originally posted these cemeteries. I can tell who put up the memorials, but not the cemeteries. Any ideas on how to correct these two and get the memorials in the proper cemetery would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help.

RE: Uldean Brown
Thank you so much for fixing her name on her grave profile and linking her to her parents. Lora, Jeanie, and JoAnn are still alive. The other 3 siblings died of severe cerebral palsy sadly, My mother, Lora, and two aunts, Jeanie, and JoAnn were lucky enough to not have gotten cerebral palsy like their 2 sisters and brother. At the time of the 3 deaths, my grand parents did not have any money to put toward a grave stone, then when someone knew bought the graveyard, they were sure to add a stone to everyone's grave, i guess the records were wrong for Uldean's grave when they done the stones but we were just happy they had a stone because we knew where and who they are. We do plan on some point buying proper stones for their graves but unsure when the money will be available :( but again, thank you so very much, i really do appreciate it, as does my family <3

Dr. Thomas McPherson Brown
Hi Cindy,

Hate to bug you but I don't think Find A Grave is going to accept the bio as it's written as they like to have it in a specific format. I know it's time-consuming to look it all up and sort it all out so I have written a bio, if you would want to use it:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Medical Pioneer. Successfully isolated mycroplasma responsible for rheumatic illnesses in 1939, paving the way for new treatments of arthritis, scleroderma, and lupus. (Bio by FDP)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Hope this helps.

RE: Thomas Brown
There's quite a bit online about his work. In the 1940's, he isolated mycoplasma that causes rheumatoid arthritis.

If you google his name you will come up with quite a bit about him. He wrote a book, "The Road Back," and authored over 100 research articles.

In your google searches, if you search THOMAS MCPHERSON BROWN and then add these keywords (one at a time): MYCOPLASMA. INFLAMMATION, TOMOKA, 20-20, and OZ you will come up with tons of info.

He was an incredible human being. Hope this helps.

Hi Cindy,

Did you know Dr. Brown? Just wondering if you considered submitting him as famous?

Thank you. I have found so much information that was confusing as well as wrong from the older research. Most of the family is gone and I am trying to update the records. We are supposed to have a small reunion next week so I was wanting to get as much done as possible.

I appreciate your help. I searched in the Cemetery Lookup and it said there was no Scott Cemetery. Is this in Gainesboro? I would like to try and go through there to see if there is one of the unmarked graves next to her in case it is my great grandfather. He was married before her and we do know he was not buried with her.

I appreciate all your hard work and your help.

Would you please transfer Eldon Proctor to me along with Julia Ann Proctor (Memorial # 41901252)? I would love to add the family information to these relatives.

Thank you,

I also was wondering if Scott cemetery and Red Hill Cemetery were the same? One of the relatives published a Proctor Family Book and he had Julia Ann buried in Scotts Cemetery in Gainesboro which is where her husband, John Henderson Proctor is listed as buried.

Would you mind telling me where you got the information for Julia Ann Proctor. Also are you a relative?

Family has her born in South Carolina. Father was named Tom and mother Julian.

She is my great grandmother.

Thank you, Cindy, for make the family link change. I did try twice to enter the request in the edit box, and both times it said the same thing about your e-mail. Could have been a fluke at the time. I appreciate your help.

Hello Cindy,
Would you mind changing the family link on this memorial (#39770513). Gertrude was the daughter of Walter Peyton, Sr. and not his spouse (she was only 12 years old when she died).
Thank you,
Susan A. Shown
P.S. I tried the "edit" button on her memorial, but it said that your e-mail address was not valid.

It is a wonderful service that the findagrave volunteers do - finding unknown or lost relatives is like finding a bit of yourself! Thank you!
