Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am no longer living in Knoxville,TN. We have moved to Port Saint Lucie,FL. I began to assemble a family tree in an effort to learn more about my predecessors, to find out more about who they were, what they did, where they lived and what became of them when they passed on. This project led me to Findagrave and thanks to other Findagrave members I was able to learn where many of my relatives were buried and see their markers. As family members are scattered around the country it is difficult if not impossible to visit them all. As a way to pay back the kindness of those members taking photos for our family, I began taking photographs of headstones for others and creating memorials. It has become an interesting and relaxing hobby. If I have created a memorial page for a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to your care just let me know. Also, please keep in mind when you request a photo that many cemeteries are large and not well marked. Without information about the plot location the plots can be time consuming to find. Try to contact the cemetery by mail or phone and obtain any info. about the plot location to help myself and other Findagrave volunteers find your loved ones resting place and take the photo you desire. I would also like to give special thanks to Robert A. McGinnis. Robert is the Knox County Cemetery Historian and his efforts in researching and documenting all the cemeteries in Knox County, Tenn. and many in surrounding counties have been a great help to those of us that walk the cemeteries in search of headstones. Thank you Robert ! Questions pertaining to interments at Old Gray Cemetery in Knoxville should be directed to Alix Dempster at 865-522-1424 or Quite often she has additional information relating to those interments.

RE: Infant Osborn
ok thanks. I probably had a brain fart. Not an easy cemetery. Beside being large, it has several yellow jackets nests and a skunk that likes to roam around, lol! Lots of distractions.

Note that the name on the headstone is for David Crowfoot but the name on the memorial is for D.W. Crawford.

Nancy Jane McMillan Armstrong.
This should be John as Nancy's father not James.... Trying to get these McMillans correct is challenging sometimes.

He and his wife are buried in the Strawberry Plaines Cemetery. Nancy is buried in the Spring Place Presbyterian Church Cemetery.

Thanks for all the great work.

Hi Howard,

It was so great to find my grandmother and grandfathers tomb stone. Are we related in some way? My grandmother was
Helene A. Sutherland.
I live in California and I was named after her. It would be great to hear from you.

Thanks for all your work.

Addison Wear Armstrong husband of Nancy McMillan Armstrong
I cannot find him in this cemetery. ??

He was born at his father's homestead on the Holston River.
He became an expert surveyor as so many members of his family were and practically inherited the place of County Surveyor, of Knox County, Tennessee, which was held for forty years by his father. His grandfather, Samuel Wear, had also been a surveyor, the profession espoused by George Washington.
He held a number of public offices and was for twelve years Justice of the Peace. He was County Surveyor for twelve years and owing to his accurate knowledge of the surrounding country as well as to his well-known fairness and his reputation for justice in all things he was called upon to settle many land disputes, many disputants perferring to leave the matter to Addison Armstrong's decisions instead of going to the law.
He was an elder in the Presbyterian Chruch at Spring Place from the time of its organiation near his home until his death in 1873.
He was an enrolling officer durning the occupancy of East Tennessee by the Confederate Army.
He was a polite and affable to all and extremely modest in dispositions. He died on his plantation May 22, 1873 and is buried in Spring Place Cemetery a few miles from his home.
Addison Wear Armstrong and Nancy Jane McMillan Armstrong had three sons and three daughters.
