Any way to find out what graves "weren't" removed by TVA concerning the "Browning" cemetery? Would you know of any Browning family members that the information might have been passed down to? I checked with TVA and they didn't keep a record of those not removed:(

W M Turner Cemetery
Thirty names and fortytwo photos have been added to the W M Turner Cemetery. There is a rather large 'chicken fighting ' industry in the neighboring lot. Fear of being shot loomed. I photographed the whole cemetery yet some headstones were not properly cleared of debris…needless to say I was in a hurry. There are several graves marked with fieldstones only…no names. The satellite photo will show the "chicken farm'. Enjoyed!

It was taken from his pension file obtained at the National Archives. :Died June 21, 1893. Married Barbara Foust July 12, 1849 In Knox County, Tennessee. She filed her widow's pension from "near Graveston, Union County, Tennessee." (Graveston is usually considered to be in Knox County.) He served in the lst Tennessee Infantry companies D and A. They owned "a rolling ridge farm of about 112 acres. Very poorly watered, only one spring at one Sie of it. It is thin land..,.has two dwelling houses and out buildings. The place is not in good state of cultivaytion. The rental value of it would be worth Some fifty dollars per year....I own one horse worth about $60 to $75.00, no cow or cattle nor sheep. I have a few chickens. I have Some two or three dollars coming to me on note and two dollars for pasture. I owe a right smart Doctor bills and the like. I have paid some of the doctors bill for waiting on my said deceased husband and I owe some on it yet. I have no income whatever only the product of said land and I only have a homestead right on it. My children ae all married and I have no one legally bound to support me.

Charles Lafayette Munyon
Hello Leon, I have just looked at your memorial for my husbands(Marvin Thomas Munyon) Great Uncle Charles. Beings I didn't create or manage this memorial I can't edit the family. Would you add Charles's fathers findagrave # so it will show on both memorials? The number is 22275155. His name is William Allghn Munyon which you don't need just the number above. Thanks so much.

Hi Leon. Thank you so much for all of the info and pictures you have provided.

There seems to be a problem with the above memorial; the picture and the names are not matching. Thought you'd want to know!

D R Beeler Cemetery
Thanks Leon, I should have contacted Find A Grave to correct the name when I added the memorials (easy to duplicate if the name isn't right). Yes I knew David was buried at Taylor's Cemetery, he was my g-g-grandfather. He wasn't buried with his family because they didn't know if the Cemetery would have to be moved and he said he didn't want his bones disturbed after he died.
2 other Cemeteries that I have photographed and added memorials were also misnamed on Find A Grave. The first is Peter Stiner Cemetery on Old Leadmine Bend Rd.(listed by Find A Grave simply as Stiner with 16 burials) and Katy Moyers Cemetery (listed by Find A Grave as Moyers 39 burials numerous field stones. Hope this helps.

Thanks so much Leon!

I will be posting more pictures of headstones for the cemetery over the next week or so. Please let me know if there are any headstone pictures that you want me to send to you in a higher resolution. These pictures may be useful for the Union County Cemeteries Assocication.

RE: Duplicate Memorials
First Mr Graves, I am NOT trying to run up my numbers. I have hand collected many many records from cemeteries, burial permits and other sources over the years and when I found Find A Grave I transcribed these records and attempted to edit as best as I could so there would not be duplicates and the information could be out there for folks to locate their relatives of which I have transferred hundreds for.

These thousands of records that I hand transcribed and will I make mistakes..?? Yes. Will I inadvertantly make duplicate..?? Yes. Do I immediately rectify mistakes and duplicates when they are brought to my attention..?? ABSOLUTELY!!

Mr Graves it is folks like you that just want to yell and scream and give no attention to the matter of correcting an issue. You said I have duplicated your grandparents and aunts and uncles, and yet you gave me NO CLUE as to who these folks are or where they are located!!

I am happy to help anyone, but I WILL NOT pay attention to petty little scathing messages from someone who just wants to rant and rave!!!

If you want me to correct the mistakes give me some idea of what the mistakes may be and I will gladly take care of them immediately. If all you want to do is send hateful little messages, then do it to someone else.

Leon, Boston is the son of John Graves and Mary Trout Graves. John and Mary are both buried in what is now called the Boston Graves Cemetery on Jim Wolf Road close to where the Union County/Knox County line is. I have it well documented.
