Bio and Links
Bio Photo My hobby is indexing and preserving family records for future generations. I am an avid cemetery hunter, this comes from spending my childhood roaming cemeteries near where I grew up. I have a digital camera and love to use it for the purpose of giving people from far away the opportunity to see the graves of their ancestors that may not be able to due to long distances. Our nation was built upon the backs of these common people we are adding to this site. They should always be remembered.

(I will gladly transfer management of memorials to the family members upon request, however, I WILL ALWAYS RETAIN MANAGEMENT OF MY FAMILY AND ANCESTORS.)

UPDATE: Please use the edit tab and the suggest a correction link to request a transfer or a correction. I will no longer honor requests that are sent directly to my email address as this requires too much time and research. Please also include information as to how the memorial that you want transferred is related to you.

Thanks you all the work you have done in the Sparta area. I appreciate that you will take the time to list the graves of babies and children that die you. Many do not list them. Without your work I would have never found this child. Thanks for the transfer

Very curious. You would, indeed, think that the VA Graves Division would make sure before cranking out a bronze like that.

This is the second Union Vet in my tree that some well-meaning but uninformed descendant has marked as a Confederate. And they always get angry when you tell them the truth! :)

Which daughter are you descended from? I descend through his son, Henry Logan Cain Pippin (1869-1916). Cain Pippin's daughter, Blonnie, was my maternal grandmother. She actually abandoned my mother at the age of two (and she was given up for adoption), along with her older sister Frances, but they reunited with her later in life. I actually knew her throughout my childhood as my "Granny."

Do you live in middle Tennessee or elsewhere?

Do you have any idea who marked the grave of James K. Polk Pippin?

They have him marked as serving in a Confederate unit. The 1st Tennessee Mounted Infantry was Union, and he even received a federal pension. They didn't give those to Confederate soldiers!

Just curious. I think it needs to be remarked and the record corrected.

BTW ... he is my 2hd Great-Grandfather.

Dear G.L. Goolsby,

Thank you for all you have done, are doing and shall do well.

It is done by you as many do here like a drink from the Fresh Water Spring going over the Va. Rt 151 Mountain in Nelson County Va.

Are we kin through the Stratton's which came from Vermont?

Please add me as your friend even if not kin on here at Find A Grave.

PS: Still a quandry in Va. with our Harvie/Harvey name spellings and docs. Harvey was one of the first names to land and the first Born Male of English Decent ( Baby Harvi/Harvey ) at Roanok Colony. Now in what is N.C. at Harvey Point ( CIA) where US Seal Team 6 Trained for Geronimo. They know of the female , Virginia Dare but so far all I have found on the first born male is BABY HARVIE/HARVEY.

Would the James Madison "Matt" Burgess you listed be a relative of James Madison Burgess who married Elizabeth Harris? They were from the Flynn Lick area of Tennessee. Thank you, Nancy Murray
