Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Knoxville TN and I enjoy exploring graveyards.

After I retired, my cousin asked me to find out where my gg grandfather was buried. I found that a memorial had been created on

I started looking for other ancestors and there were some on findagrave and others were missing.

I decided to start adding missing memorials for my family and to document the entire cemetery where possible timewise and weatherwise.

If I've created a memorial of your family member or friend, I'd be happy to transfer.

RE: Your profile photo
Yes, my cemetery vehicle. I dig for buried stones also and I get strange looks. Hmmmm, don't know why. I have recovered well over 200 stones so far. Most of them in Hill Grove. With their permission if course. Abandoned cemeteries I just do them. In 2011 I located an abandoned cemetery that no one knew where it was exactly. Pfoutz cemetery in Montgomery County. All the graves were listed in another cemetery about 2 miles away. There is a lot of errors on Find A Grave concerning 19th century cemeteries. I have all them in my area fixed. I have my own memorial on here also. Almost had to use it last week. Lol, but I escaped. The number is on my profile page if you want to visit me. I wanted to be in control if my photos ranging from 1960 to present day. Have fun graving.

RE: May Etta Perkey

Cant recall are you related or just do a great job on Find a Grave? Also do you know anything about her son Horace ( there is one at Lynnhurst but not the same.....His wife's name was Elsie I think and I cant locate either.

May Etta Perkey
Dear Mr. Long,
Some time ago you had sent an edit to add Clevenger maiden name for May Etta Perkey my Great Grandmother. There was a Ramsey connection to but I am unsure maybe her father's mother's maiden name? if you have any info please lemme know.
I appreciate your hard work.

Hello! I see you have done a LOT of work and I appreciate all that you have done. I see you have my cousin Prince Albert McMillan as one of your listings. I would love for you to transfer his memorial to me. Your comments on his bio are very cool - thank you for all your hard work.

Mae Thomas
Thank you! Yes that actually helps a lot!
Mae had a daughter Betty Ruth who was married to Howard Miller! I just looked at the memorials and it looks right. It shows Betty as still alive which I think is still the case.
Do you mind if I use your pictures in my ancestry tree?

Mae L Thomas?

This is a long shot, but... :-)
You added a picture to the memorial for Mae L Thomas (20311281). Wondering if you possibly have other pics of those nearby, or know anything? I am trying to track down where one of my GGreat Aunts, Mae Lea (Vinson) Thomas is buried. The years are correct and she did die in Knoxville.

thank you! Erin
