Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have seen the Find a Grave website during my online travels looking for family members. However one member named Robin Lee touched me deeply when she uploaded a picture of my mother's grave. My mother died very young and was in TN, I am in So. FL. I don't go north that often and it seems each time I have been to my mother's grave I wasn't able to take a picture, last time it was pouring down rain and I was on my way to my father's service and wouldn't be able to go back to this cemetery. So finding the picture here meant a lot to me. It brought tears to my eyes and still does when I look at it and can see it clearly. I hope I can help others find their family members.

The family names that I am researching are Starrett / Clark / Kagley (my father's family) and Crisp / Borden / Malcolm (my mother's family). Any help on this is always appreciated.

I was given a bulk transfer of about 1500 or so memorials that are located in and around Maryville, TN. I have been transferring these memorials as a request comes in. If you see your family members and there are more than 5 of them it is easier for me to do the transfers if you create a virtual cemetery on your profile using DebStarrett as the name. When you go through and find your family members please add them to this virtual cemetery. Then email me that you have them in this cemetery and I will make the transfers as long as they are not relatives of mine (if there is a husband/wife and you are related to one and I am related to the other keep in mind I will only transfer the one you are related to). Doing transfers of these memorials this way has worked out well and I have transferred a lot of these memorials to family members this way. When you email me please tell me your closest relationship to one of the group (GGG Grandfather for instance) as I will only make these transfers to family members.

As a rule I will not publish any news articles or obits on my memorials due to copyright. The only time that I will do this is on a direct family member of mine.

If there are changes that need to be made on any memorial that I have posted please let me know. I do not have a problem with transferring memorials to active family members of the findagrave website. I am not a "collector" of people. I am doing this so that hopefully relatives will be able to find loved ones and be able to add the information on their family trees. I also do not have a problem with someone using the headstone pictures that I have taken for their personal files.

I also want to let people know if you just happened across this site, if there is a memorial for an immediate family member and you do not want it on here, it is the policy of the web site to remove it. All you have to do is ask. Ask the person that put it up or go right to an admin and ask. Either way it will be removed.

RE: Julian Starrett
I am sorry. I was relying on the FindAGrave data below which comes up in Ancestry.Com and lists three children for Julian and Gladys Ruth Starrett: James S, Bonnie Loretta, and Eulis Frederick. But the obituary for Eulis “Fred” Starrett says "He is survived by his mother, Wanda L. Crouse" and I got the wrong Wanda Crouse from Ancestry.Com. I'll be more careful and read all the Bio's next time. Ancestry.Com is often wrong by matching names that are the same.

Name:Julian Langston Starrett

Birth Date: 28 Jul 1934

Birth Place: Tennessee, USA

Death Date: 3 Apr 2008

Death Place: Nevada, USA

Cemetery: Kagleys Chapel Cemetery

Burial or Cremation Place: Sixmile, Blount County, Tennessee, USA

Has Bio?: Y

Spouse: Gladys Ruth Starrett

Father: Ola Buhl Starrett

Mother: Ethel Irene Starrett

Children: James S. Starrett
Bonnie Loretta Starrett
Eulis Frederick Starrett

RE: Thank you
I'm glad we got this straightened out. I wish people would be more careful with their edit requests and do the research before they jump to conclusions. With the old fashioned edit requests I can at least track who sent it to me. Unfortunately Find A Grave did us a dis-service by making the quick edit feature. It is no longer simple to post who requested the edit and I have no way to track it back later. I do decline the obvious errors, but I cannot possibly research each and every one. I get too many each day. I have friends who refuse to do edits anymore and have turned it all over to Find A Grave because they were tired of being yelled at for adding incorrect information. That's sad after doing all the work to take photos and post memorials. Anyway, good luck to you.

RE: Julian Starrett
Deb, you have been in this site for over 6 years. You should be aware that people send in information to be added to memorials. Sorry, I don't have the time or resources to investigate them all to make sure they are accurate. I have deleted the link to Julian Starrett and Wanda Crouse. If you had read Wanda's Bio I gave you the name of the person who submitted the information:
'Julian had 3 children with his first wife Wanda. They were Fred, Bonnie (Sissy) & James. Sissy & James passed away before Julian. Fred passed away after Julian..
Julian had 5 children with Gladys Ruth (Crisp) Starrett (1940-1984). They were Harvey, Deborah, Tammie, Faye & Juanita. Julian was in Las Vegas with his son Harvey when he passed away. He was cremated and his ashes were brought to Kagley's Chapel Cemetery in Blount County, TN and scattered on his parents graves.
(submitted by James Henderson)'
If you like you may find James Henderson and correct his mistakes.

Virtual Cemetery requests
Hi Deb! I've added a virtual cemetery on my page including 5 relatives of mine that I was wondering if you would mind transferring to me? Mamie Edna Hatcher McAfee was my great-grandmother, William Andrew McAfee was my great-grandfather, Helen Imogene McAfee was my great-aunt, Amanda McAfee was my gg-grandmother, and Thula McAfee was my gg-aunt. If you're also related to any of these I understand if you choose not to transfer....thank you so much! :)
