Bio Photo "Show me [how you care for] your cemeteries and I will tell you what kind of people you have."
Benjamin Franklin

-
All of my ancestors for at least six generations are from Fentress county Tennessee. I have a great deal of interest in the history of that area.
Some family names are: WINNINGHAM, ATKINSON, COOPER, WRIGHT, CONATSER, MASSINGILL, BEATY, HOOVER, KING, ROBBINS, YOUNG.
I would love to have old family photos and would be glad to share mine!
I have found many cousins here on Find a Grave and would like to meet more.


"If I didn't have those people back there, I would never have had anything to write about. That's where I got all my stories from. My life is from them. I'm going to do everything to keep up for them, in memory. That is my duty from now until I die."
- Author Ernest J. Gaines explaining why he takes care of an old cemetery on the former plantation where five generations of his ancestors, going back to slavery, are buried.

I seen you had a photo of a man up righting a stone named William Watt.
Would you happen to know how to get in touch with him?

I see that you have created and are maintaining a number of memorials for people in Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Monroe County. Would you be willing to accept a transfer of one of my memorials for
Charles Maston Brinson who is buried there? I am returning to work full-time and won't have time to properly maintain the memorials that I've created. You may reply in the public message area or to dpgraves785@gmail.com. Thank you.

Waterford Cemetery
Casey,
In 2009 Tony Jeffries created an almost empty cemetery in Indian Creek township, Monroe County. Then in 2011 he created another cemetery called Snow Hill Family, with the exact same GPS coordinates. Then in 2013 you created the Chambers Cemetery, with the same GPS. In the 1939 WPA survey they called this cemetery the Waterford Cemetery. The Waterfords were one of the first African-American families living in Monroe County. The other two cemeteries have some memorials but no photos. You took some good photos of what is left of the headstones. The Monroe County History Center is thinking of using this cemetery as part of our MLK day events, on Jan 19.

Gillaspy Cemetery in Monroe County
Casey,
You created the Gillaspy Cemetery, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2496752&CScn=gi&CScntry=4&CSst=17&CScnty=844&, it is also known as the Mulky Cemetery. Do you mind if we add that as an alternate name?

Coffee and Everman cemeteries
Casey,
You created a cemetery called the Coffee cemetery. And Traie Shelhart created the Everman cemetery, These appear to be the same. Between the two of you it looks like have decent photos of the broken headstones. Technically this is called the Everman/Coffee#2 cemetery. Can you find out about merging these two? I can help if you need any.

Just wanted to tell you Ed was my cousin. Our mothers were 1st cousins. I lived in CA at the time & no one told me Edward was killed in vietnam. I even went to the vietnam memorial in Washington DC & looked for other friends from Russell Co. I was shocked and saddened when I found his grave at Lucinda. When I learned about Find A Grave, I left virtual flowers, but today I couldn't find them. Then I realized yours was a duplicate, but that's OK, yours is such a beautiful tribute. Thank you, Nancy
