RE: What should I do?
Oh I remember that one well. I'm the one who wrote that description. You would be very safe to put a memorial in the cemetery. Those poor old headstones are just flat and blank now. Some have fallen over face down, some have crumbled, and some graves are only marked by field stones. I'm positive there are many that just aren't marked at all.

You can make a note on the memorial that the burial information came from the death certificate. I go right by that cemetery every day on my way to and from work...I'd be happy to stop by and look for a headstone for them. It's always, always possible that I missed somebody, or that the light at a different time of day will show a clue I missed the first time. Let me know who it is, and I'll try to find them. If nothing else, I can get you a photograph of the field stones that could possibly mark their grave...

James is on the same headstone as Chantal. I cannot transfer him to you as I did not create that memorial but if you have other information to add to his memorial, use the edit feature to send that info. and they will probably just transfer the memorial to you.

Hey Carol Sue!

I've run across an obituary for Martha, and wondered if you'd like me to email it to you. If so, just send me an email, and I'll reply with it.

William Overbay, Flat Hollow Cemetery
Hello again!
I've run across an obituary for William Overbay (1919-1983) buried in Flat Hollow Cemetery in Campbell Co. Would you want to put it in his bio? I'll be happy to send it with a link to him, if you're interested.

Rufus Turner
Reply to your message:
Yes, I believe memorial #33970316 to be Rufus Turner, son of Jessee and Elizabeth. I actually have 3 death dates for him (2/1863, 3/18/1863, and 4/7/1863), but have listed the date shown on the US government records for the cemetery where he is buried.

I'm happy to include the death certificate on her page and let others decide which date is correct. I have listed that info on her bio, but have left the date on the record the same as the marker.

RE: Jacob Weaver - # 46322657
Sorry I didn't have more info. And thanks for the info you provided. I have a request. Could you please add Parilee's maiden name (Weaver) to her Find-A-Grave Memorial Page (#23822332)? Thanks!

Added by sherrien59 on Jul 29, 2011 2:38 PM

RE: Jacob Weaver - # 46322657
My research shows that Jacob Weaver married Eliza Bailey October 19, 1871 in Campbell Co, TN. They had 8 children: Florence, Mary Ann, Easter Jane, John Sanford, William L., Jim, Rancey F., and Margaret Matilda "Maggie".

Eliza died in 1888. Jacob married Rachel Allen April 10, 1898 in Union Co, TN (Jacob was 43, Rachel was 20). They had 2 children: Hily (or Hila) E. (born May 1890) and Precie Parilee (born August 1895).

The 1900 Census shows that Precie Parilee was born August 1895. The 1910 Census shows that, at the time of the census, she was living with her brother, John Sanford Weaver, and his family.

That is all the info I have on Precie Parilee Weaver. I do not know who she married. If I had that information, I might could give you more.

There is another Paralee Weaver in Tennessee. She was born July 1892 to Samuel & Evelyn Weaver. She married William Harrison Webb and they had 6 children: Willam Oakless, Buela, Mable, Rita, Flora and John A..

RE: #50913566 Daniel M Ford
The widow's pension is the best reference for genealogy. There will often be information on their marriage, children (living and deceased), his exact death date and hers will be there also showing when the pension ended. You can order it directly from the National Archives online. I have not done it in several years but you will receive a full file in about 4 to 6 weeks and I am guesing it will be about $50. Great resource.

RE: Do you know of this cemetery?
Hey Carol Sue! I've got a book here written back in the 80's that lists the cemeteries of Campbell County. There is a Ford Cemetery listed, and the directions the author gives are, and I quote: "About 1 mile south of Victory Baptist Church in Poweder Mill Hollow, on a farm owned by Bobby Goins. The cemetery is covered in trees and daylillies. All the stones except one are overturned, and all are very hard to read." That was in 1988....I can imagine they will be much much worse by now.

My husband and I took a drive to Powder Mill today to see if we could spot the cemetery from the road, but couldn't find it. The author of the book that I have lists the following people buried there: Daniel M. Ford, Dan'l Ford, Flora Ford, Lewis Ford, Nancy Ford, and Dorothy Nelson. She says there's approx 25 more unmarked graves, but I don't know how she would know that. I'd love to list the cemetery and burials on Find A Grave, but I won't be able to prove the existance of it until I can get my own feet on the ground there; 23 years ago was a long time, and there's no guarantee the cemetery or burial ground or even the headstones still exist. Let us try to actually stand on the site and get some GPS coordinates and photos before we put it up on Find A Grave. Melvina may be one of the unmarked graves.

If you ever do get down this way, please give us a yell...we'd surely love to have lunch!

RE: #50913566 Daniel M Ford
Hi Carol,
Daniel was a member of the 1st Tennessee Infantry, USA which is a regiment that I research. I added his grave to Find A Grave because of this, but I do not have a photo of this one yet. I can tell you what I know about him with regards to a wife. His wife was Melvina Parker who filed for a widow's pension April 20th, 1904 after his death. She did receive a pension (581464) and this would be a great genealogy resource to order the widow's pension from the NARA. I have more information about his military record and perhaps some other information. Let me know if I can help some other way.

RE: Do you know of this cemetery?
Hey Carol Sue! We're good down here, but hot, hot, hot. It feels more like August than June.

There's several little cemeteries over in Powder Mill that could have changed names. One of them is currently known as Wilson Cemetery or Shelby Cemetery. I've found obituaries that refer to it at Miller's Cemetery, so it's possible that it's been known as Ford Cemetery...there are several Ford's buried there.

There is also McNeeley Cemetery in that area, which is an older cemetery. I've not found it called anything else, and in fact it wasn't even on Find A Grave when I joined....I had to add it.

And there's Jones Cemetery in that area...that's a beautiful little cemetery, but like McNeeley, I've not found evidence that it was under any other name. That doesn't mean they weren't called something else, just that I don't know about it.

The only other one close to Powder Mill that I can find on our map is Robbins Cemetery....that's some little Robbins' children, and is more in Alder Springs than Poweder Mill.

My husband tells me that Poweder Mill has shifted areas over the years, and what we know it as now, may not be what it was say 50 or 60 years ago. It would all depend on when the person died that you're looking for.

Hope that helped rather than muddied the water even more! LOL! Have a great weekend!
