RE: Shadrack Hale
Don't find any trace of Meshack at Landon's burial ground. The Sinking Creek mentioned is several miles away, actually Carter County - Oak Hill Baptist isn't that far, near the intersection of Cherry Hill and SR81 near Fall Branch. I posted the DAR photo on Shadrack's memorial. G

Here's some additional info for you. The burial ground is generally known as the Landon Carter Hale burial ground on Coxes Springs Road, Fall Branch. I surveyed it last year - PM me for additional info, if you'd like.

I am a member of the cemetery survey team.

RE: Landon Carter Hale
F-A-G can sometimes be challenging, to say the least. Both graveyard entries refer to the same physical location. The graveyard does not have a separate tax ID, and is actually on a parcel that is adjacent to 216 Coxes Springs Road, Jeroldstown, TN. This was all owned by the Cox family years ago and prior to that, by the Hale family. Our survey team refers to the burial ground as the Landon C. Hale burial ground. That same designator was used in the early 1970's when Arnold Hale provided a listing of the markers to the then survey team coordinator, Charles M. Bennett (now deceased). During the 1930's, (before 911 addresses, etc) the WPA coordinated a survey of burial grounds - this data is much more general in its accuracy than the more refined locator info used today. We often find the data loaded into F-A-G to be less than accurate, and sometimes difficult to get corrected. I am always more than happy to tender as much info to requestors as possible, so that they might know where their ancestor is correctly located. I will add a "view" photo to Landon's memorial which will clearly show where the graveyard is. If you'd like additional info, please feel free to e-mail me - I am happy to share and provide the most accurate data possible. Gordon

RE: John Blanton
Hola B, I found something to add to Delilah's memorial. Thank You B, Have a great day, Randy

31 JANUARY 1884 page 1 column 1

A surprise party and dinner was given Mrs. Delilah Blanton, at her home near Needmore on last Monday, the 28th inst. She was persuaded to visit Mrs. Eliza Gowen in the morning, and in her absence some seventy-five of her friends gathered at her home and spread a big dinner. Mrs. Blanton was then induced to return on the pretext that her sister had come home from Kansas, and when she arrived and was informed that the gathering was in honor of her fifty-eighth birthday, gave way to her feelings and tears trickled down her cheeks while she expressed her thanks, after which the guest did justice to the dinner. Mrs Blanton was born in Clarke County, Kentucky and came to Hendricks County in 1836, where she married John Blanton, and raised a family. She has many friends who wish her the return of many such anniversaries.

RE: Christopher Fred Blanton
According to the headstone the date of death is correct April 2, 1928. I have added a photo, but the headstone is very worn and not easy to read. You should be able to make out the date of death though.

Me again since we are going into town today I will go by the cemetery and check the date on the stone. I sometimes have trouble making out my husbands writing so I may have transcribed the date wrong, but will let you know.

RE: Christopher Fred Blanton
I created the memorial from the information on the headstone and then went to for additional information. I am sure the date is correct because it is the date on the headstone. Last year my husband and I recorded all of the headstones in Stateline Cemetery (because we get a lot of requests for that cemetery). Then I entered memorials for everyone who was not already on Find A Grave.

I am not sure what you were trying to tell me in your message, but think that it may have been that his wife was simply Angeline not Nancy Angeline. I removed the Nancy, but if that is not correct let me know. I know that Fred and Angeline are buried side by side so I must have the correct wife and I have found the marriage record for them.
