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 area of Carroll CO, TN; 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 reserched in these areas include: Isom, Hurley, Paysinger, Brown, 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.

RE: Flora Montgomery Photo
You are welcome. I was in the area for the holidays and I needed to find and photograph some of my own family. While I was there I tried to help out others while I was there.

RE: Peebles/Peeples family
According to 1900, they had 13 children, but only 7 were living. I have found 6 children and have submitted SAC, but may take a while before all of them show up. I don't think Oak Hill Cemetery and even Humbles Chapel Cemetery are completely researched yet. I don't live close either, but I'll try to stop by at both cemeteries this sping, if I get a chance. Research is just something I like to do. :-) June

RE: Lucy Wingate Taylor
Patricia, thanks for your help. Her full name was Lucy Ann Wingate Redd Taylor. She was married to Charles Redd and according to family records he drowned sometime after his youngest daughter was born, 1899. Lucy was listed in the 1900 census living back with her parents, Mary and James with the girls. She also was using her maiden name Wingate. Then she married a Taylor and I guess she moved to Tn. I don't know his name or when they were married. Does she not have a tombstone? Do you know where she is buried?

Lucy Redd Taylor
Hi PPC, Lucy is my great great grandmother, Thank you for posting her obit. I was wondering if you take pic of the monuments? I would love it if you could take one of hers? In your research have you come across who (Taylor) she was married to? I just found where she married for a 2nd time, but couldn't find his name. Thank you, Lisa

RE: Robert Butler Crews
Deleted! I also wondered if anyone knows the burial place for R. B. Crews's first wife, the former Mary Johnson...

RE: Robert Butler Crews
Oh, finding that pension for him would be GREAT! I wonder if that descendant might know specifically where he and Susan Amanda are buried at the Beech Springs Cemetery, since both appear to be unmarked graves.
