About Me |
Since I retired, I've found a bit of time to get back into genealogy. I think I've become addicted to FindaGrave. What a fabulous site! I enjoy setting up and maintaining memorials for my loved ones, as well as others. I also enjoy being a volunteer and taking pictures of headstones to upload! My husband has even joined in the fun!!
My photo shows what I love most -- visiting those little old almost forgotten cemeteries.
Please remember to use the EDIT button on memorial pages to offer suggestions, corrections, and even questions regarding specific memorials. Also please remember that no one is perfect -- we all make mistakes.
Obituaries and Other Documents
I will not include cut/paste from books, obituaries, or other documents in the bio. I will be glad to include a summary of the obituary, but names of the living will not be included. From other documents, I would consider including only pertinent information that is not covered in other fields on the memorial.
Please do not add scanned items, including death certificates, in the photo area of memorials I manage. If there is information in the item you would like added, please submit it in a SAC and I will consider adding the info in the bio. Otherwise, please only upload grave/headstone photos and/or personal photos of the deceased.
Regarding Burials Unknown
According to Find a Grave guidelines (FAQs), creating a memorial as a Burial Unknown is to be used only for new burials, with the memorial to be edited/updated with the final disposition within 30 days.
Please do not request that I link to a Burial Unknown.
Please feel free to use (for your personal non-commercial use) any headstone photos that I take and upload to FindaGrave memorials.

|Eva Pippin Flowers||Willis Pippin Cemetery later known as Bolivar Pippin Cemetery|
Imagal suggested contacting you to see if you might have any information on Boliver Pippin Cemetery located in Putnam County, Tennessee, on the Dyer Long Road which runs between the Old Gainesboro Road and Pippin Road. The cemetery was originally the Willis Pippin Family Cemetery.
To my knowledge from John Pippen: A New Beginning in Maryland, some included in the cemetery are:
Willis and Mildred "Millie" (Woodfork) Pippin and some their children:
Mahulda Pippin m. Ishom Meadows (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)
James Willis "Nig" Pippin m. 1. Alice Barnes 2. Nancy Mariah Jane Dyer (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)
Willis Woodfork Pippin m. Lanora "Nora" Finn (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)
Joseph Craven "Kidd" Pippin m. Alice Mae Pippin (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)
Bolivar Pippin (died in infancy who may have been the first grave in the Boliver Pippin Cemetery)
Appreciate any insight you might be able to give on this.

Thanks so much for your help with the Stephens family memorials. As soon as you find out for sure which cemetery is the right one please let me know. I noticed that Cosby's was posted in 2010, so it is most likely right.
|William Brent Holland||McCracken|
Thank you very much for pointing out the spelling error on Mr. McCracken.
If you have a relation to this or his wife's memorial, I stand by to transfer at your request.

Greetings, since you have listed Wm. A. Hill as your 2nd great paternal grandfather, I could use your help as I'm researching this Hill family in Overton County. I'm wanting to know how you know that Wm. A. Hill and Michael C. Hill are cousins and how Wm. A. Hill is a son of Sarah Hill, daughter of Thomas Hill, Sr. I have three different places where Wm. A. Hill could fit in the lineage based on findagrave and census records.
I have a great deal of research [I've been at it for 41 years] on the Hill families and the Overton Hills are especially important in my line. Could we converse by regular email? I'm at email@example.com and would love to chat.
Thanks, Jerry McDowell

Changed the memorial to read like the tombstone and made a new note. It seems from the census data that a birthdate after 1850 makes more sense. As it appears Jerry's father was still in the household of his parents in 1850.
Take a look and see if it makes sense to you.
Thanks for the update ....much appreciated.

death certificate lists same birth month and day, but has birth year as 1848. Which does differ from the tombstone birth year.
Census records vary from 1849 to 1851.

I am really not sure. But his death certificate, which can be found on
Tennessee Death Records, 1908-1958 lists his parents as Joe Nicholas and Sarah Huddleson.
If you have ancestry.com you can view the original death certificate.
If not you can e-mail me and I will send it to you.
Could be a case of incorrect info in either the cemetery book or on the death cert?
But yes....the death cert lists A. as his middle initial.

Hi Genealogy Lover, thank you so much for the great photo. The inscription has exactly what I have in my family tree. Name and dates are absolutely correct. Could I please use the picture in my family tree? Again thank you!
