|Not too much to tell - I'm an amateur genealogy researcher and don't care to help out others with their research if I can. I'm retired and have some time available to do this. I believe that all burial grounds are sacred, and that each and every grave means something to someone.|
I work mostly Washington County, TN and a bit of Unicoi County, TN.
My F-A-G work is somewhat limited. It goes in spurts. I enjoy trying to help folks out. It seems hard to get errors fixed, however. I continue to work locally and, if asked, I try to assist researchers. I work more on graveyard documentation, restoration, and preservation. I appreciate those of you who sent thank you messages, I truly do - you account for about 10 percent of the requests that I process. To the others, please think about your volunteers - they research the locations of the markers, often hike to family cemeteries thru brush and briars, we spend hours and dollars fulfilling requests - It is work and we take it seriously.

Thanks for all the CW soldier grave photos. I had no idea you had so many. I do not have any additional information on James Carter, Memorial #141701834, other than what I found on Find A Grave. I double checked my ETHC resource to see if I coud turn up a request for a gov't stone, but did not find one. As you probably know lots of those records were lost in a fire long ago, so he still could have a VA stone. Sorry I can't tell you anything else.
You could be right. I haven't done any research really about the family.
I'm confused about your pic on Find A Grave Memorial# 100399113. Do you disagree on the name or was this an "oops"?
I don't have GPS coordinates, I didn't take any because my phone is from the stone age and doesn't do all that fancy stuff LOL Good thing that it isn't hard to find. Take the left branch on Martins Creek and yep, drive to the end. There is a gate on the left side of the road.(I posted a pick of it). Hike past the gate till after the road curves to the left and the cemetery is on the left side of the road. You will see 4-wheeler tracks going up the bank to it. I hope that you find some headstones that I missed, good luck.

Wow, you really covered the ground today. Your work confirmed the burials for nine soldiers. Impressive and inportant. Thanks again

Thanks for those photos of the stones for the three CW soldiers in Gray Community cemetery. Your help with the "proof of burial" photos for the CW soldiers has made a huge difference.

I was so thrilled to find the info you posted on my GGgrandfather, Jesse C Hurt. (some of his children spelled it with the "d", some didn't. My line didn't). I wonder where you were able to document his wife's name as Johnston. I found a marriage license for them in Burke County with Johnston, but on their youngest daughter's death certificate in California (Mary, known as Mollie), her mother's maiden name is listed as Oday or O'Day. So I am looking for additional documentation on the Johnston surname. Also, I have no clue as to who her father was. So any additional info you might have would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for the help. I wonder how you got those records. I ordered what was supposed to be all of his military records about 20 years ago, and didn't get that one for the marker with the death date.
