|I love walking through old cemeteries, reading the inscriptions and wondering about the lives of the people buried there. Why not take a few photos while I'm there?|

You are welcome for the photos, glad to help.
The marker is a single stone, his name is on the front and hers is on the reverse side. They are buried in the same grave.
In the older sections the spouses were buried in adjacent graves. Thus two markers were necessary. In the newer sections, with spouses buried in one grave, one stone is used and the spouse is listed on the back and usually has the engraving "His Wife".
At the present time they still adding only one stone but are engraving the spouse's full name.
Since she died before he did the original marker probably was something like this.
July 4, 1919
June 24, 1989
Wife of LT COL
Norman Hansen USAF"
Her last name was not listed but rather "Wife of..."
When he died the stone was replaced with her name on the reverse with only her first name and "His Wife"
It is interesting to see the evolution for the engraving of the stones.

Stephanie, it was my pleasure--this cemetery has been greatly neglected, but just in the past year has become the project of a man who is taking great pains to clean it and the neighboring Pinehurst Cemetery. The before and after pics are stunning. Unfortunately, the markers such as Grant Murphy's with the plaques made of tire material are far gone--his was one of the more intact ones--so sad! We are hoping that a site map can be found at some point. :)

Hello Stephanie, I have volunteered to get a picture of a headstone for Freddie Smith at the Robertsville Cemetery. I just wanted to let you know that it is taking me a bit longer to get the picture. I have been to the cemetery but some of the really old markers are really hard to read. We have had some really bad weather so hopefully I can get back over there in the next day or so to try again. I certainly hope this is ok. I will get it done though ASAP.

The fourth grave that was with Hendrix and Eagleton is
John W. Gibson (6/24/1884 - 1/2/1947)
When I took the pictures I was not sure if he belonged. If he does, I still have the photos.

Did you catch the 1-year old's headstone?
I've attached Anne as the Mother due to the fact that on the 1910 Census Anne is living with her Father, William H Huggins (67 yrs) and his 2nd wife, Maggie (60 yrs) married for 17 yrs (about 1893).
Anne K Bizzell is married to John W Bizzell, she's had 3 children 2 of whom are still living, Margaret (8 yrs) and Beverly B (6 yrs).
The other living with William Huggins are boarders.
I could not find a memorial for her husband, John Washington Bizzell or I would have linked him to Washington Huggins Bizzell too.

Stephanie: I have tried to locate this cemetery once before and it seems to be completely gone. The cemetery was located near the Belle Meade Country Club on Page Road. This area now is all residential and I could not locate any monuments at all, sorry.
