your Find A Grave Memorial # 23441898
Hi - Thank you for posting a memorial for John Peter Ottinger, Sr. - # 23441898

In it his death date listed as 1801 (age 50). The deed records listed below indicate he lived a longer life. Perhaps you'd consider posting his death as 'after 27 Apr 1817'.

On 25 Nov 1801 he was a witness to land transaction between Benjamin Crow & John Neas in Greene Co., TN - pg. 100, 'Greene County Tennessee Deed Abstracts, 1810-1822, Vols. 9, 10, 11 & 12' Abstracted by Joyce Martin Murray, Privately printed, 1996, So. Cal. Gen. Soc. Library, Burbank.

On 26 Jan 1809 he requested a land law change in Cocke Co., TN - pg. 401, 'The Reconstructed 1810 Census of Tennessee' by Charles A. Sherrill, Privately printed, 2001, Carlsbad City Library.

On 27 Apr 1817 he was a witness to land transaction between brother & Andrew Stine in Greene Co., TN - pg. 91, 'Greene Co., TN Deed Abstracts, 1810-1822, Vols. 9, 10, 11 & 12' by Joyce Martin Murray, Abstractor, Privately printed, 1997, Carlsbad City Library.

Thank you

Hi, I'm just getting started in this. Mom has some of it down. Maybe we can put together what we both have and see if there is anything new that one of us don't have. Could be interesting. I'm sure ours needs updated. Thanks Mickey

RE: Rachel/David Ottinger
Hi John,
An update on Rachel/David Ottinger....someone walked the Eagle Village cemetary in 1990 and both Rachel and David were listed...a later listing does not show them. Once again, I am assuming that their headstones may be unreadable. Another interesting note is a death listing I found today for Rachel...her burial is listed in yet another cemetary--called Eagle Creek Regular Baptist--this cemetary is on private property and very overgrown. So, I have a list of records to check at the courthouse and the Ottingers will be among them! Don't give up...the fat lady has yet to sing!! Jill

David/Rachel Ottinger
Hi John,
Thanks so much for your note! I am happy to help. I visited Eagle Village Cemetary today and am sorry to say that I did not find them. This cemetary is mostly stones from the 1800's, mostly the soft marble, many unreadable. Unless Rachel/David's estate didn't have the money to afford anything but the soft stone, I would hazard a guess that they are not buried there. The next closest cemetary is on private land, so I will need to get permission to check it out. This is a mystery I really want to solve for you and your family! I will keep you posted! Jill

Rachel/David Ottinger
Hi John,
You have probably received the "problem" note that I sent. Eagle Village Cemetary is located north of the ZIonsville Cemetary...outside of the town, but still in Eagle Township.

The mortuary records indicate the correct death years for Rachel and David. The date of death listed for Rachel is 3/29/1921. (I forgot to write down David's, but can certainly find it if you need me too.) No cause of death was listed in the mortuary records.

I have also checked the 1860/1870 census records to see if I can find more evidence of them in Boone County, Eagle township, but had to leave as the museum was closing!

My plan is to try to find the cemetary (a drive-by today was unsuccessful, but I have some other info about the cemetaries.) The listings in Eagle Village cemetary were from 1970's/1980's, so either the people who recorded it totally missed Rachel and David, or their stones may be unreadable. I will try my best and get back to you as soon as I can! Jill Ridge

RE: Martha Blinn
I found her. She is buried in Section 42, lot 39, at Crown Hill. She is in the McCurdy Plot. She is listed in the online records incorrectly as Martha Blum.

I have pictures of the other McCurdy's in the plot, and will post today. They are Hester and Samuel. Hopefully this is helpful. It is always nice to slove a mystery.

Martha Blinn

I wanted to let you know that I might have stumbled upon an answer for where Martha Blinn is buried. I am going out to Crown Hill tonight after work, to test my theory. With any luck, I will have a photo to upload tomorrow.
