Thank you so much for taking time! Yes, I believe this is my great uncle. I will work on getting a marker for him.

Crystal Could you Contact me?

May I "please" ask you to contact me at my personal email address? I'd like to talk with you and perhaps even invite you to my ANCESTRY tree.

I've stumbled a little bit this morning. I tried to send you messages that explained what I thought was a problem. I have studied this this morning and I think...NOW...that the photos of George Washington TEMPLETON with a wife, Eliza Jane LAWSON and then a photo with a George Washington TEMPLETON with wife Laura JOHNSON...

I "thought" that these two women had married TWO different George W,. TEMPLETON'S...


When I compare the photos...Those photos show the SAME man! I'm backing up and with the photo "proof" am certain that that is the SAME man! I again come to the conclusion that my George Washington TEMPLETON was married TWO times, first to Laura JOHNSON, with her dying on 15 September, 1913, and then George Remarrying to Eliza Jane LAWSON, on 14 October, 1915. Pictures don't lie...and THAT is definitely the SAME person in both photos...

If you would send me an email to my personal address, I will invite you to see my ANCESTRY tree. George Washington TEMPLETON was married twice.

Sorry for all the emails but I've really been at this this morning, Crystal. I now think I have it.

I am here again to apologize! I have made a terrible mistake...

The George Washington Templeton you have as being married to Lura Johnson IS NOT the same person as the George Washington Templeton that I wrote you about. Please disregard my message!!!!

There was yet another George Washington Templeton, born 11 August, 1893, at Eidson, Hawkins County, TN. and died 7 August, 1933, again, at Eidson, Hawkins County, Tn., killed after falling from a horse, at Eidson.


I am so sorry for confusing you. Please accept my apology here.

Your George W. Templeton did marry Lura Johnson. Mine married Eliza Jane Lawson. I had made a mistake in thinking that they were the same person and married twice. Evidently, there were TWO George W. Templeton's...Mine and yours. I am red-faced over this mistake on my part. Please forgive me for this.

Geesh! I am updating my record to show this update.Please disregard my earlier message to you.

GeorgeWashington Templeton Memorial

I have added some photos to the George Washington Templeton FindaGrave Memorial. I have added photos of him with his two wives, Lura Johnson and Eliza Jane Lawson, as well as his death certificate, and a photo of his tombstone. He is said by Templeton descendants to have been buried in the old Lawson Family Cemetery, located on, as the Lawson Cemetery, at Murreltown. I just wanted you to know. Thanks so much,
Sam D. Lawson

Marilyn Winstead
Salling Cemetery, Scott County
My name is Marilyn Barnette Winstead. My grand-father was Jimmie D. Barnette. My father was Joe L.Barnette. I was born in Fairview, VA. and raised in Kingsport, TN. I now live in Maryland near Annapolis. My message to you is how very much that I appreciate your time and effort in researching for all the cemetery info in Scott County. I am an avid ancestry buff and your information has, at times, been invaluable. My roots go very deep into Scott County and I sometimes feel that I am kin to everyone who has ever lived there. Ha!Ha! So of there is any way in which I can be of help to your research, please contact me. My email is: Again thank you so very much for your hard work and effort.

RE: Lucy Harrison
I have the whole article and page 296 is the following: "The Virginia historian W. G. Stanard, writing in 1924 identified them as Lucy and Hannah because their father's will implied they were the younger daughters," [Every account of the lightning strike asserts that Harrison's daughters died with him. And it is certain that his was not the only death in the family: his executors listed against his estate L1.16.6 as the price paid for "coffins."] - - Stanard, "Harrison of James River VMHB, XXXII (January 1924), 97) Numbers of other writers have taken the Stanard "supposition," and included the same false information about Lucy. Lucy lived a terrible life, she never returned to America and never again saw her brother, Governor Harrison, nor her children and lived in what could be called abject poverty. Hope you can find the article, some library may have the Virginia Magazine or could find the article by Gerald Steffens Cowden, "Spared by Lightning, The Story of Lucy (Harrison) Randolph Necks."

RE: Lucy Harrison
Look at 94216076, she is the daughter of Benjamin Harrison, signer, not the sister, see the list of his children on the site, and she married a Randolph.

RE: Lucy Harrison
Her number is 94216076, you must have either managed the site or left flowers of remembrance on either Lucy's site or her mother, Anne Carter Harrison's site, there is where I found your email.

Lucy Harrison
Lucy Harrison did not die in the lightning strike that killed her father and two daughters but lived a long life, with several husbands, some children and died ca. 1792-1793 in London, England. See this article:

or google "Spared by Lightning, The Story of Lucy (Harrison) Randolph Necks by Gerald Steffens Cowden.

Thank you so much, Crystal. I've been on ancestry for two days now. Yes, lots of my family are from Scott and Lee County. John B Hammonds was my Grandpa, but he died before I was born so I never knew him. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for all you have done to provide information about our veterans. We are Union County Cemeteries Association (of Tennessee.) We are a very small all volunteer organization dedicated to preservation of our rural history and cemeteries. During the final year of the sesquientinal we are trying to honor our soldiers by posting photos of the final resting places of the CW soldiers from Union Co. Tn. We request permission to use your photo of one of our CW soldiers, Marion Harrison Dyer, on our UCCA website and on our Facebook page. You would be given full credit for these photos. We use both of these as tools to recruit new members. Would you please consider this request?

RE: Mountain Home
Crystal, I hope all is well. I saw the picture requests came open again and since I was there today putting down a few early Wreaths Across America wreaths for the 13 war dead there, I took some photos. I retook Darrell's and added it since the light was good and the grass is down and posted it. If you don't like it, please let me know and I'll remove it or after you take one I can also remove. You won't hurt my feelings one bit.

The Wreaths Across America ceremony will be held here tomorrow, Sat, 13 Dec at 12pm (noon) at the cemetery, if you're free. Allen

Hi Crystal,

Thank you so much for your efforts.

I really cannot tell you how thoughtful it was for you to go to so much trouble.

If you can email me the birthday party photo that would mean so much to my mother and me.

Thank you! Sheila

Hello Crystal, I've already been to the cemetery on Thursday and took what I could. You'll find the two in the SS section are not up yet, the UU one has no grass behind it and I didn't think it looked right to just show dirt and the II and KK sections are under renovations and are just mud and dirt, so take a pair of shoes you don't mind messing up. I also didn't take the LL one since the light was right at that time. Better luck and thanks for taking the time for families so they can see their loved ones markers. Sincerely, Allen

Thanks for what your doing, I'm researching family history from out of town & your photos help when I can't go in person. You posted a photo of a marker for David Grills (Depew Chapel). I am a descendant of his brother, Noah & looking for there parents', William & Jane, grave sites. Would be overjoyed if you run across them. Thanks
