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: Amelia Lauderback
Tommy, Please don't hurry. I know it is slick and muddy now. Springtime will be soon enough! I'm just curious. Looking at the monument/marker photos, one surname is spelled with an "o", and three with an "a". I've noticed both family and monument carvers make mistakes a lot of the time! I am just concerned, and curious, that we are looking at the same grave!

Thanks!!! Tommie

Amelia Lauderback

Good Cold Evening! I made the additions the DC gave. I tried to "soften" her POD. I noticed that you found 2 distinctly different grave markers for Miss Lauderback. What we found, photographed, and posted were the metal marker and a nice marble stone with only her name one it which was not seeded in the ground. I know that I am asking you to remember a fact that will be almost impossible to remember, but have you any idea where you found her grave? Going by my description of the location being heavy brush and sunken graves and seeing the photos, what I found must have been near the road going up the hill through the cemeteries.

I now want to return and see if I can locate both your's and my finds. Hopefully, they are in the same location. Thank you! Tommie

Gun shot victims
My father's family is from Monroe Co. In the 1800s and early 1900s all the men carried guns. When they entered a home, they placed them on the mantels. I learned this while, like you, amazed at the number of murders of the men. Three of these were my great uncles: Earnest, Henry, and Tom. Why? We don't really know, but alcohol and loving the same daughters of Charles McGhee played a large part. Their cemetery is below: (Howard Family in Monroe).
