Good catch. Since she didn't put Mrs. on the memorial, I never thought to look. I linked her with her husband and added my photos to her memorial and deleted mine.

RE: Manone McPherson Wood Freeman
Lee, I turned up a bit more information. You can view the death record for Virgie Manone Freeman at It gives her birth date as November 9, 1909 [differs from 1910 on gravestone -- which may have been placed in later years] in Henning, Tennessee, and death date as July 5,1943 in Memphis, Tennesee, with burial at Greenlea Cemetery in Fulton, Kentucky, on July 7, 1943. This document lists her spouse as Fred R. Freeman, so they were still married at the time of her death. So, indeed, her father-in-law, John Norman Freeman was then buried next to her later (1978).

FYI, Manone's second husband, and John's son, Fred Russell Freeman (4/16/1914-7/22/1994) married a second time: Dorothy Bell Gossett (10/21/1917-4/26/2014) on August 18, 1944. They lived in Memphis where he worked as a conductor for the Illinois Central Railroad for 41 years. Both are buried at Forest Hill South Cemetery, Memphis. They had two sons: David R. and John M. Freeman.

Manone McPherson Wood Freeman
Lee, I note that you list Manone Freeman was John Norman Freeman's second wife.

Manone McPherson was first married at the age of 17 to William Tucker Wood (1907-1930) in Lauderdale County, Tennessee, on August 18, 1927. W. T. and Manone had an infant son who was stillborn or died shortly after birth in 1928, and another son, James Thomas "Jimmy T." Wood (1929-2000). After W. T.'s death at the age of 23 from a brain tumor, Manone married Fred Russell Freeman.

Fred Russell & Manone Freeman were living in Fulton, Kentucky, at the time of the 1940 Census. Fred's father, John Norman Freeman, was living in Fulton as well (with son Harry and daughter Martha).

I have been unable to determine what happened to Fred Russell Freeman. Perhaps he and Manone divorced or he died (maybe in WWII?). Have you found his death record?

Have you located a marriage record for John Norman and Manone Freeman? Do you know for certain that she married her father-in-law? If not, is it possible she is simply buried next to him?

John's first wife, Fannie Brockwell Freeman, is buried at Greenlea as well (next to their youngest daughter, Martha) and his last wife is buried next to her first husband.

If you have additional information to share, please e-mail me at:

Best regards,
Linda Wood

RE: Mother of Mary Alice Pillow McFarland
B. F. Pillow had a sister named Amanda Pillow. I have not seen the name Amanda appearing on the McFadden side.

In a note you said that the mother's name was Susan AMANDA McFadden. Where did you find that middle name? I have never seen that middle name listed for her.

While the two listings do appear to be for the same person, it seems I unknowingly added a duplicate person because the original listing is in the wrong cemetery. I will have to go back out (eventually) to be certain, but I'm almost 100% sure I knew which cemetery I was in. I've seen this happen before, where someone lists a grave they think is in a certain cemetery, but hasn't actually been there.

Emma Terry Burnet #2
Hello again! Of course, after I asked for help, I may have solved this problem myself. I looked a little further into the 1910 census and found that Norris and Emma A Burnet had only been married for 3 years in 1910, which means they were married in 1907, which was after Robert Cunningham Terry died in 1906. Emma and Robert's daughter (Mary Terry - 17 years old in 1910) seems to have taken her step-father's name (Mary Terry Burnet), which was her name when she married my grandfather (James Luther Hutchison). 1910 was the last census in which she was listed, as she died shortly after giving birth to her daughter (my aunt) in 1913. My grandfather later married Mary Ellison Noah (my grandmother).

Thank you for listening!

Emma Terry Burnet
Hello! I'm running into brick walls with my research on Emma Terry Burnet, who is the grandmother of my aunt, Mary Terry Hutchison. On Emma's memorial page, you left a message which helped me greatly in my search (thank you!); however, now I'm stuck. Maybe you can help. Emma's maiden name was Emma A Wolfe; she married Robert Cunningham Terry on 12/15/1881, so her name would then be Emma A Terry. Her gravestone is marked Emma Terry Burnet, which is where I'm stuck. I found a census record for Emma Terry Burnet, married to Norris Burnet, which could have been a second marriage after Robert Cunningham Terry's death in 1906, but I can't find any records other than a couple census records that list Norris Burnet. To further confuse me, Robert Cunningham Terry's mother's maiden name was Burnett (with 2 t's), but you wouldn't expect that name to be carried forward to her daughter-in-law. I'm sure the grave marker for Emma Terry Burnet is the correct grave, as my aunt is buried right next to her (Mary Terry Hutchison - 1913-2000). (This is an assumption based on the pictures of both graves.) Mary Terry Hutchison's mother (Mary Terry Hutchison 1892-1913) is also buried in the Terry cemetery.

Confused? So am I! If you have anything that might help me, I'd be most appreciative! Thank you!

I worked with Glen Lee--visited him at home about a week before he passed away. His wife Margaret is alive and well and still runs her beauty salon at her home. This other Margaret passed away before Glen and is NOT his wife

Dear Lee,

I am not related to Captain Charles Gordon. I have an interest in the history of the US Navy. I found burial info for the Captain and made a Findagrave memorial for him. I would be happy to transfer his memorial to you if you are interested.

Best regards,

I have had it happen a few times. I clicked save. Before the save was completed, I then added more information and clicked save again. That resulted in 2 memorials. Fingers are faster than my brain :-)

Hi Lee, I want to thank you for adding these people. I am James William Thomas's daughter Kathryn. My parents divorced when I was 2 and I never saw him again. His parents were already passed by the time my parents married. I had heard my Dad had 3 sisters, Mary, Thelma and Marie. I did not know their parents name until I saw their graves on here. I am just starting to go through old photos and search for answers on the web. Thank you again for doing this. Kathryn Thomas

As I was doing a little family history this morning on FindAGrave I noticed that you were one of the names I was constantly running into and felt bad that I was sending you so many corrections but was pleasantly surprised to see that all of a sudden I now manage some of these memorials that you created. Thank you and thank you for your work in putting them together.
