Lenord Bettis Mahan Cemetery
Chandler, I searched the Mahan Cemetery in Hamilton County, TN. I have a photo of a recently replaced headstone that reads "Vennie Green Bettis" dob 1 Oct 1873 and dod 27 Mar 1930. Could this be the same person? Velma

I don't appreciate the message you have on my 4th great grandfather Memorial Grave. Just because you can't find your Bettis line is no reason to post a false message on my Bettis Ancestor.

Wyatt Bettis has proven records and documentation
of his family in Franklin NC, Washington Co Ga
and Wilson Co Tennessee.

Bettis Cemetery - Georgetown, TN

I contacted the owner to request access to the cemetery and was rudely refused.

You can look up the owner on the Hamilton County TN GIS database at

They have a landline listed on

If you can legally prove that you're a descendent, you can demand access under the Cemetery Easement portion of Tennessee state law.

RE: Frank Jr or Sr
You are welcome!
Just in case we have future correspondence, thought you would want to know I am a Ms :)
My parents wanted a boy when I turned out to be the fourth in a long line of girls so they named me in accordance but at least put the "ie" at the end instead of the "y", which still didn't help to identify me as a girl when I was growing up and many teachers accused me of shortening "Martha" to "Martie".
Now you know part of my life story :)
Blessings to you,

Charles H. Bettis
Chandler: I looked for Charles' grave site in Lakeview Cemetery, Loudoun County, VA. I found the site(using a map of the cemetery), but unfortunately, there is no grave marker. Sorry.

I am a descendant from the Bettis' in Loudoun county but have had no luck in finding where they came from prior to Fauquier County, VA. Which line are you with?

Happy Spring, Chandler! I located four Bettis' in the Emma Jarnagin Cemetery in Morristown, TN. I thought I'd give you a head's up in case you were searching for them. Have a terrific Sunday!

RE: Cemetery Unknown
Its obvious you are a closer relative than I , being only the 3rd gr grandaughter but , at times people (myself included) do post memorials for those whose burial is unknown to link them to their families, and to share information. Later on, if the grave is found , we can add that . If we come to find out there is already a memorial for the person that we were unable to locate at the time, we can always delete ours.

If you are a direct relative and this is upsetting to you, I can remove it. I hope this explains my actions.

RE: Shelah Bettis
I can not remove the information that was posted only the person who posted the memorial can do that. I'm sorry you are upset. We can see if we can find a death certificate for her and maybe it will have a cemetery for her. Kathy Blums

Shelah Bettis
I have contacted Cedar Grove Cemetery and there is no record of Shelah Bettis being buried there. They also have no record of her husband or father. I also contacted Wilson Co Cemetery and she is not there either. If you can find further information on her I would be glad to check it out. Kathy Blums
