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 findagrave.com.

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.

Frank Earl Price
Tommy, I made the additions for Frank and asked for a connection between Marguerite and Porter Fowler. I normally don't E-mail confirmation of your work; but, I am always excited to do these for you. This last one, of Frank Price, took a lot of work, obviously! Congratulations! Tommie

Odd Fellows
Tommy, Having visited Odd Fellows several times, I truly believe this is his resting place. It is very large and could easily encompass several cemeteries. With the explanation, I believe creating his memorial in Odd Fellows is the best option.

After reading the writers comments on the attached site and the description of Odd Fellows on Find A Grave , I am going to assume Odd Fellows contains what could be called Good Samaritan Cemetery. I spoke with R. Booker about Middlebrook Cemetery. Middlebrook is actually 4 cemeteries. With what we have learned about African American and other poor cemeteries, unless he is/was in OF, we will never find him. Please let me know what you decide - 'tis most interesting! Thanks, Tommie

RE: Memorial # 47280754
Is that telling! My husband placed the larger piece back on the base. We did what we could.

A hidden camera would be a great idea! I wonder if JJ Jones would be interested. (Probably not.)

You are great! I've been doing this 30-plus years. I did not catch "single", although you stated it more than once! Thank you! To confirm what you wrote, I checked the censuses and found her in 1920 and 1940 as "Johnson". Thank you, again! Tommie

Horace & Alice Johnson
Horace: I like my spelling better, also! I've indicated your "find" on his memorial. I've noticed so many of the older AA stones have phonetic spelling. Possibly this is such an instance.
Alice: I took another look at her DC. Her maiden name is "John" and her married name is "Johnson"! How confusing!
