On the memorial for C. Kidder # 99001158 you have that he was born in Kentucky. On the head stone is has Columbia Co. N.Y. Shouldn't it be New York.

Just wondering!!

Heads up on your post.
To my knowledge there is no Malone Cemetery in Ardmore. (not Ardmore, Giles County, Tennessee at least). There is a Malone Cemetery in Cash Point, Lincoln County, Tennessee that in only a few miles from Ardmore, Tennessee or Ardmore, Alabama.
Ardmore in on the state line between Tennessee and Alabama and covers three counties around Ardmore. They being Giles County, Lincoln County both in Tennessee and Limestone County Alabama. These counties join each other at that point.
John Asberry Christopher Find A Grave# 140870016 may be buried in the Malone Cemetery in Cash Point, Lincoln County, Tennessee (not sure). There is a large cemetery in Limestone County at Ardmore called Gatlin Cemetery. There is a Elliott Cemetery just outside Ardmore in Giles County. And of course many others.
But again I have never heard of a Malone Cemetery of Ardmore. Think someone added it when they did not find the on in Cash Point, Tennessee just outside of Ardmore Tennessee/Alabama.
Thanks for listening to me.

Thank you for your continued interest in completing the memorials for all of the persons buried in this cemetery. The records were so incomplete & you and I believe that they should be remembered!

RE: Martin Family Cemetery
The oldest one I can think of would be Speck Funeral Home in Livingston, TN - they have a website and contact information. If they can't answer your questions, I'm sure they can put you on to a source who may be able to help.

RE: Ella I Hysell (Keepers) 15171577
Sorry, I don't have any further info. I do know that in the 70s I knew Leslie keepers, son of Vern and he told me we were related through the Powers that his grandfather was married to Ella, but later divorced after Vern was born. My other family members told me that Ella was married to Vern, but I later found out that Vern was her son, not husband.I wish I knew more myself.This is the first I have heard of a Isabel Powers. I do know that Ella's middle name is Isobel though. May be a conflict of names there, I don't know.

RE: Starnes Graveyard
Yes, two Starnes cemeteries in the right area for your folks. One was bulldozed, one was removed to Mt Holly with the dam, neither had any mention of your person, both had a lot of unreadable fieldstones. I'll ask John if he'll check his book for you.

Nothing on your Hayes headstone hostages yet, I assume?

RE: Thomas Amos Patton, #83504326
Don' need no steenkin' photo requests, but I do need sunshine, preferrably at the right time of day.

Minus sunlight, am entertaining myself with your 11 never transcribed in that cemetery. Maybe a few have no marker, but not all.

Which leads us to Forbes photos: Access permission needed, but will treat like Pattons...reunion planner, indeed... :-)

Thomas Amos Patton, #83504326
There's no getting ahead of you on Pattons, so the following is just FYI. Reverend Amos P. has company on his tombstone. Wife Sallie may indeed be buried in FL, but she's also inscribed with him, 1875-1965 (years only).

Zella Armstrong P. (#82379668) shares a marker with husband Edward (1880-1945), and Charlie Lupton P. shares one with wife Mary (1892-1976).

They're all a.m. photos and I was there p.m., so have nothing else to share.

Just found her in cemetery transcriptions, buried with husband and his family. I set up Forbes cemetery in Shop Springs, Wilson County, with a dummy, which I'll delete if you'll move the "real" Mrs. F. Wheeee!

RE: John Jesse Austin, #83247325
Photos added. Peeled Chestnut was/is a community in White Co., yes. Don't blink when you drive thru.

Death certs are hard on us volunteer photo-takers, as are obituaries, but sorting it out is what you pay us for. :-) John Waggoner said Mr A was in Dekalb transcriptions 30 yrs ago, but we hadn't looked.

It helps to know where your mom lived, and to carry your whole wish list on these outings. Much "important research" accomplished at the Smithville McDonald's on a Kindle Fire!

There's a third footstone for another child, J. F. Mooneyham, 11/7/1900-10/25/1904. Just let me know if you add that one and want the photo.

Also, John has the photo for Eliza Austin's husband, should you want to add him to the list.

RE: Ammon Medlin, Maranda Medlin, Eliza Austin
Super, I'll tell John. Will email a Medlin/Austin/Mooneyham group photo later.

Now, re Johnsons Chapel, if you'll move Tennessee Maynard out of Maury Co into Dekalb, and add hubby L. F. if you want to, I'll post them, too.

Also in (the correct) Johnson's Chapel, W. C. Steele had wife next to him, do you want her info? Looked like other possibles nearby, too. Want a list, or no?

Ammon Medlin, Maranda Medlin, Eliza Austin
These three folks are listed in Anderson Cemetery in White County. They're actually in Anderson Cemetery in Dekalb County, and it's already on Find A Grave. Ammon has already been listed in Dekalb by someone else, but, if you'll move Maranda and Eliza to Dekalb, then John Waggoner will post the photos for you!

Sarah Patton, # 83504072
Same for his (Johnathon's) wife, Sarah, listed as having died in Liberty, TN. Cottage Home is 3-3/4 mi from Liberty as the crow flies. If you don't like Anderson @ Cottage Home (Wilson Co.), there's always Old Salem @ Liberty (Dekalb Co).

And, speaking of TN Anderson cemeteries, your Medlins (listed/requested) at Anderson in White Co. are, I believe, at Anderson in Dekalb Co, according to transcriptions for both counties. Will head that way when the sun comes out.

J. B. Patton, # 83503918
You mentioned not having a place to put him? Cottage Home is teeny, probably some family cemeteries around, but THE cemetery is Anderson. Search under Wilson County, TN; that's the one. Haven't found a transcription list for it, tho.

Headstone Hostages
Mwahahahaha, my little pretties! (It's Pattons who are in the cemetery at Baxter.) Richard and Missouri Hayes are safely ensconced on a hilltop 4.87 miles due south and a smidge west of greater downtown metropolitan Silver Point.

Since the lake pre-dates me, I don't know what the old road name was, but Austin Bottoms is across the river to the east-northeast. The "new" road name is...Martin Cemetery Rd. It's not the Hurricane dock road, if that's what your mom's thinking.

As for reuniting you with your dears, I sent an email with the details, directions, and coordinates to the contributor who set up the memorials last night because the Hayeses are in the company of 25 others she manages, also in the "wrong" Martin listing. You are correct, this cemetery is not yet listed on Find A Grave. If you'd like any of that info, let me know.

I'm holding your relatives' photos hostage until they're moved into the correct cemetery. Your mentioning Silver Point helped me find them near Hurricane Bridge. Gorgeous ridgetop location, over the lake.

Harriet W. Berry
Just checked your photo requests, and there are plenty I'll be happy to check on. However, I know from experience that some of these (in TN) will be problems. For your own enjoyment, would you like photos made "in the area" of those requests? Such as between Joe Patton and his youngest, wherein I'm fairly certain lies his wife? Also, I see some requests in areas that are full of fieldstone markers, and if specifics aren't available, maybe something evocative would be OK for personal reference?

RE: Mary Patton Sullivan 80818454
Silver Point, as in, up the hill from Buffalo Valley? I'd've been through there yesterday afternoon but for taking your Snow's Hill photos instead. Have been told Rose Garden is THE place to eat, but missed my last opportunity.

No, I'm about 1-3/4 hr from Decherd, but know how to pronounce it, and am very familiar with it, Alto, Belvedere, Huntland, Elora, the hot spots, old roads and the new one. Am overdue to visit the tent graves at the Perkins Cemetery mainly because I default to picking up fresh pancake mix at Fall's Mill. Stopped by the city cemetery (of course it -would- be "Garner") recently for a quiet place to review maps and load the camera. Knew about Polly Crockett down the road, but had no idea I was in the land of Pattons.

No prettier place in the springtime than the farmland between Pelham and Decherd, with the Plateau as a backdrop, unless it's driving down off the Rim from Silver Point. Both are also favorite places for old gravehouses in out-of-the way cemeteries. I'd be absolutely thrilled to chase down any photos for you, and your mom, at either place. "Please don't throw me in the briar patch!" What a delight, you've made my day!

Lizzie Ricketts Patton, #83239343
Just indicated a problem with photo request, but did not request its removal. Am confident Mrs. Patton is buried next to her husband. Between Mr Patton's marker and that of daughter Era and son-in-law are three unmarked graves. Perhaps Mrs P and infants, others? No idea. Did take a photo of that layout, if you want to review.

RE: Martin Family Cemetery-Baxter, TN
It means a lot to hear you say that - makes it worthwhile getting up in the morning and slogging through mud, snow, getting chigger-bit, keeping a sharp eye out for rattlers & copperheads - sounds like a mailman, doesn't it? (laughing). But really, it's so nice to hear a "success" story like yours. It'd be wonderful if you could post some of your Mom's memories about the folks memorialized here to their individual memorials.
I'm working my way through Overton County now, so if you've got more folks you're looking for her, post a photo request and I'll see what I can do.
