Retired from the U.S. Marine Corps in 1990. Have lived in beautiful East Tennessee since 2004. My wife, Nikki Lynn, and I are interested in helping folks with their local cemetery picture requests.
I am a descendant of the Herrings of Madison County, Georgia. Four brothers (along with their half-brother, James W. Payton) enlisted in Company A, 16th GA Volunteer Infantry Regiment, Army of Northern VA, CSA (Madison County Greys) in 1861/62. One brother, Henry L. Herring (my gg grandfather), survived. Additionally, their father, Alpheus Herring (age 51), joined Echol's Light Artillery, CSA when it was organized in July, 1862; he survived.

MAJ R. E DeMers 35411633 Howdy - your USMC R.I.P. note for the above memorial will disappear when the memorial is deleted because it is a duplicate. The original memorial is 23562106 should you wish to place another note. Mike Weeks
I just wanted to let you know that Coy D. Harris, my grandfather, had 3 children. One child, Dale, is buried next to him. My father and aunt, Robert Vernon and Elizabeth, are still living. I hope that this information is helpful!
You and James Cope have duplicated several memorials. I think you are working on the same cemetery but with different names. You have it as the Idol Cemetery, and he has it as the Mount Pleasant Church Cemetery. I noticed this when I was working on Theopolis Shockley. You have the same dates and pictures of the same headstone, but listed under different Cemetery names. I checked a few other names in both cemeteries and found more duplicates. I am leaving a similar message for James. Thanks for your efforts in Grainger County! Rick Miller
