My wife, Melba nea Wright, and I began our genealogy quest in 1989 and to this day (odd as it sounds to others) one of most rewarding things to do is visit the grave of our ancestors. |
Now retired, we tend to our family and travel. Even in a foreign country we are drawn to the cemeteries and are rewarded to learn of the many various burial and cemetery practices.

|Terra Clotfelter Gomez||RE: Varners in Knoxville|
Well, I actually grew up in East TX and came to TN as a child when my parents moved home :-) My mother worked with a Varner in the Houston area. My great grandmother was Ester A. Varner Moneymaker. Could you please link her (80760454) to her father Charles M. Varner (81117051)? I think Charles' parents were Peter P. Varner and Mary R. Summers - I've seen their names before. I will try to find information to prove that.

I live in Knoxville and am a Varner descendant. I had no idea the Varners had a cemetery until I found your contribution on this page. I plan to visit the cemetery sometime soon. Thank you for your efforts!

Hi,Les! Every once in awhile a request comes in for this person. I have searched for a marker for him but have never found one at Prairie Lea.
|norannl||RE: rideout cemetery|
Les, sorry, I have no idea where the cemetery is. Somewhere in Caldwell County, near Lockhart is all I can guess. It looks like who ever set up the memorials in Ridout Cem did not provide a location..possibly it doesn't exist anymore?? OR possible it is the same as the Wells Cemetery, as the two families intermarried.. but most likely is that the grave stones no longer exist. Probably be a wild-goose chase to go looking for them. So you can just delete the requests.

Thanks for the photo. Its been several years since I was at the cemetery. And since moving to Alabama, I really wanted the picture. Again, thank you!!

I just wanted to take a moment and say "thank you so much" for taking the headstone photo for Annie Roberts! Greatly appreciated.

I'm working from a book "Gone To Rest" cemeteries in Knox County by Robert McGinnis and he included the obits in the records for the Varner cemetery so I thought I would pass them along. I live in Texas and have never visited this cemetery.
