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 the western section of Washington County, TN and a bit of southern Unicoi County.

I've basically retired from work on F-A-G. It turned into a fruitless, endless, thankless grind. Way too many errors that I've not seemed to have much luck getting fixed. I continue to work locally and, if asked, I try to assist researchers. I work more on graveyard documenting and restoration. I appreciate those of you who sent thank you messages, I truly do - you account for about 10 percent of the requests that I processed. 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.

Buffalo Ridge Cemetery
Thank you for the info about the Good and Lane graves in Buffalo Ridge Cemetery. Sorry I missed the note that they were unmarked graves on a couple of them. I usually look for that info in the "Note" section and didn't look on down the page in the "Plot" section. In a cemetery that old there are probably as many, if not more, unmarked than marked graves. I do appreciate your effort in surveying the entire cemetery and providing that info, and I have made notes in all places I might look for these same people again. Thanks for your help!

Thanks so much for the super nice photo of Ruth's grave marker. Sorry it took a while for me to get back to you about it.
Regards,

Thank you Mr. Edwards! What a nice surprise. I didn't think the headstone existed. I can't wait to share this photo with my grandmother. I hope to get the chance to visit the cemetery this year. I really appreciate you taking the time.
Thanks, Katie

Gordon,
I've added memorials for :
Monnie Pearson Young
James Vaught
Dora Vaught

Charles Young is probably buried in the Pearson-Horton cem. Its called Buffalo Cem on the death cert.

So far I've got nothing on Carolyn Newman.

I do use ancestry.com very much. If you already have the death certs of everyone buried there on excel that would help me.

thanks,
Toby

RE: Fitzgerald
Gordon,

Fitzgerald doesn't ring a bell. However if you meant Charles Bachman, yes, his first wife was Sarah Ford and his second wife was Zillie Pearson Taylor.
