Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy using various records (death certificates, funeral home records, obituaries, church records, family records, etc,) to determine burial location for graves that are no longer marked. I think that it is especially important to identify and document these individuals, if at all possible.

I research many families from the Vale and Bruceton areas of Carroll CO, TN; the Mansfield area of Henry CO, TN, and also from Benton CO, TN. Main families researched: Presson, Turner, Crews, Watkins, Myrick, Cain, Flowers, and various associated lines.

I also research various lines from Hardeman/McNairy Counties of TN; Tishomingo and Alcorn Counties of MS, and Franklin, Lauderdale and Limestone Counties of Alabama. Main lines researched in these areas include: Isom, Hurley, Paysinger, Brown, and Arnold. Lastly, I research various families from Lauderdale CO, TN.

I am happy to make corrections or add details to any memorial via the "Suggest A Correction" button on the memorial.

I have no intent of commercial or financial gain from posting information on this site. I do this solely as a service to others searching for family burial locations for personal or genealogy purposes. I would greatly appreciate your cooperation in NOT COPYING my photos to other websites.

Roy L. Austin
Hi! So glad to join this organization! Just one correction and a couple of questions for Roy L. Austin, buried at Mt. Olivet in Mckenzie, TN. On the memorial page, you list his spouse as Pearl Crane Austin, but her name is Pearl Ezilee Cross. She married Roy Leonard Austin on August 21, 1907 and she is my great grandmother. Recently, my mother and aunt tried to visit the cemetery to see their grandmother's grave, but got a bit lost and couldn't find any of the Austins. Also, Pearl is buried there but her name is not listed here on this site. Is there some way to know where to begin to look? A map of the burials or something?

Also, if you want to update familial connections, R.C. (Richard Cannon) Austin is Roy's brother.

Patti Zavorka

She managed to take away my DIRECT Grandfathers memorial from me. SHe is married into the family and is not a granddaughter or daughter. Lou Zavorka is my DIRECT grandfather and I want my memorial given back to me. She even used my bio on it and its not her! ( words). I know on Find A Grave guidelines it says direct family son daughter wife husband grandchild ( within 4 generations ) is to have the memorial if requested. SHe blocked it so I cannot request it. It aslo states not cousins aunts uncles etc. What do I do to get it back in my name?

Thank you Laura ZAVORKA Wellner
