I had some help from the office staff in locating this grave, but I wanted to verify that I was in the correct spot before posting the pics. Unfortunately the person I needed to speak to is on vacation for the next 2 wks. I will followup on a future visit and if I have made an error I will correct and notify you.

Wm Henry & Carrie Steptoe
Buried near Dr. Henry Steptoe, I discovered that William and Carrie have unmarked graves. I have provided a photograph with flowers to indicate that the grave is unmarked.

Died July 30, 1874:
Aged 53 years, 1 Mo. and 25 days.
He said my work is done, my house is set in order, I am only waiting the Master's summons.

RE: M. Olinger
I am afraid I cannot be very much help with your inquiry on Margaret Penick Olinger. My great grandfather, Franklin Jacob Penick, was the brother of Margaret's father, Dr. Ninus Smith Penick. I only have very basic information on her from my attempts to find out about the various family groups associated with my relatives. I know her husband is buried in Springfield and preceded her in death. I found her photo attached to a family tree at Beyond that, I don't have any more information. Good luck with your quest!

William Pelham
A couple from ancestry say he is buried in the same cemetery as John Pelham and his parents and brother Samuel, without a headstone. They are Pelhams, but I don't know for sure. It seems likely to me since he died in Anniston.

William Pelham
No, I do not know where he is buried. He was my former husband's g-grandfather but no one seems to know that piece of info. Judging by the cloud he was under when he died I would imagine the family didn't want anyone to know. People speculate but no one knows. Sorry I'm no help.

A AAA American at Find A Grave
Dear Mrs. Patt Freedman,

Thank you for all you are doing, have done , and shall do. It is well.

I saw your Paynes and Bollings too.

Over the James from Buckingham in Nelson County. We have a lot of em.. some very close kin. In the County Seat of Lovingston we have Paynes in the County Offices.

The Paynes and Harvies/Harveys have been together since a.d. 1584 ( the LOST COLONY) Ronaok Colony.

In Buckingham that fire set probably by the Clerk destroyed so many valuable records too. No way any can replace those now ever.

Please add me as your friend on Find A Grave now.

Someone who does a lot of my picture request helped with that one. It cleared the mystery of the two Dovies in the different cemeteries. MHN

RE: Picture for Henry Pace McCullock at Mt. Tabor Baptist
Yes, the McCullock grave could use some maintenance. I didn't have anything with me to clean it off with, so I had to do the best I could using a stick to get the dirt out of the inscription so it was somewhat readable. I am not that familiar with Buckingham County, and don't know anything about Chellowe. As for the Taggart cemetery, I may be able to take photos there the next time I'm in the area.

You are welcome. I'll work on getting the photos up on the wife's MP. It may take me a few more days to do it due to high usage of internet time, be assured it will get posted eventually.

Have a great day - Jean Even

When I found Nannie's stone, and reading the inscription, I found her husband stone right next to hers. I took a photo of it as well. Will be glad to post it if you would like to establish a memorial page for him as well.

Enjoy your day - Jean Even

Posted a photo on Carl Jackson Bolling. The plot number is with the caption and I thought you would like to establish a memorial page for his wife Eula May. If so let me know and I'll post the same photo on her memorial page. Or I can establish a memorial page for Eula May and transfer it over for you to add to and maintain.

Have a great day, Jean Even

Your very welcome but I thought I only did one of your aunts ?
Anyway the Ford and Talbot Main Headstone you could probley put for your uncle and the Talbot one . am not sure

When my grandmothers mom didnt actually have a headstone with her birth and deathe dates on in her section of where she was in a Detroit Cemetery , a main headstone with her last name was used to show she was buried there.

Patt, It has been so long ago that I haven't much memory of how they looked. I think they were not really tall and a perhaps a little heavy and had grey hair, not much of a description I know and my memory may not be correct that far back. As I said I left Wilson CO in 1955 and actually three years before that lived in Nashville except on weekends and of course Miss Dovie died in 1952. I would love it if someone would see the memorial and add a photo. Forty or fifty years ago I could have given a much better description.
When I was in school we had what was called chapel every week or so and local ministers were often invited. Bro Vesta and Bro Powell from the Baptist Church were the only ones that I remember. Sure could not get away with that today. Feel free to ask anything you want, I may not be able to help, but don't mind you asking. MHN

Dovie Cawthon
Patt It is better that I correspond with you this way or thru e-mail. I have been away from Mt. Juliet for almost 57 years with little contact with anyone there. Did you ask Spring Hill if they have a burial date. I think it is likely just a family plot, and buying plots for children thinking they would be buried there. Also sometimes a memorial marker is placed in a family plot. One of my grandmother's sisters and her husband had a large memorial in the family cemetery with the names of all their children on it. There were about seven and I think three of them are buried there. Also did you ask Spring Hill if there is a marker for Dovie's husband Rufus Vester there? If she had ever been buried there and moved, there should be a record of that, but I am thinking not likely as the DC says Mt. Juliet. Spring Hill should have records of a burial date if there was one. MHN

Dovie Cawthon
I have no idea why she would show at Spring Hill. She is not on Find a Grave at Spring Hill

The Annotated Record of Mt. Juliet Cemetery - Internments complete through 200l - show her buried in Mt. Juliet , her death cert shows that she is buried in Mt. Juliet. I requested and received a photo for her memorial showing that she is buried in Mt. Juliet.

As you have memorials for her parents at Spring Hill I will link them.

No kin, just knew several members of the family, especially her husband, as he often preached at the small country church that I attended. He ate with us many times. Also knew Jamie, who was a teacher at Mt. Juliet, Mary Poe, and I remember Nancy a little, knew her husband better, Probably some of the others were familiar, but these are the ones I can think of now. A long time ago.

Sorry that I can not be of more help. The only thing I can think of is families sometimes bought large plots, enough for the children and then had markers placed with their names. If this would be the case, there might be a record there, You could try calling them and see if you can get an answer. Be sure and tell them that you live out of state, that might help you get an answer.

I wondered if you are related to William Fitzwater? I am searching my Fitzwater family and show he is the son of Martin Fitzwater and Rachel Elizabeth Amey; my great grand uncle and aunt.
