|Bio and Links|
Since I retired, I've found a bit of time to get back into genealogy. I think I've become addicted to FindaGrave. What a fabulous site! I enjoy setting up and maintaining memorials for my loved ones, as well as others. I also enjoy being a volunteer and taking pictures of headstones to fulfill requests! My husband has even joined in the fun!!
My photo shows what I love most -- visiting those little old almost forgotten cemeteries.
My family trees include: Sells, Winningham, Hill, Wright, Ledbetter, McDonald, Cook, Hymers, Morton, Douglas, Murphy, Clayton, Flowers, Galloway
Please remember to use the EDIT button on memorial pages to offer suggestions, corrections, and even questions regarding specific memorials. Also please remember that no one is perfect -- we all make mistakes.
Regarding Burials Unknown
According to Find a Grave guidelines (FAQs), creating a memorial as a Burial Unknown is to be used only for new burials, with the memorial to be edited/updated with the final disposition within 30 days.
Listing a memorial as Body Lost or Destroyed just because the burial place is not known is not accurate, just as Non-Cemetery Burial is also not accurate if it's a case of simply not knowing where the deceased is buried.
Please do not request that I link to a Burial Unknown.
Please feel free to use (for your personal non-commercial use) any headstone photos that I take and upload to FindaGrave memorials.

|Katrina Dawn Miller--UDC--Sherman, TX.||RE: Dr. Littleton Davis|
I do not know what cemetery he is buried at. According to my research he's buried somewhere in Overton County. His daughter, Martha Davis, married Henry Hensley in Overton and they traveled to Cannon, Texas with their children. Their daughter, Delia married James Miller, which is my line. I created Dr. Littleton a memorial so I could link my family for easier research. I'm a member of the UDC under Henry Hensley and their organization has helped me a lot with my research into both the Hensley and Davis families. One of Dr. Littleton's sons also fought for the Confederacy and their research proved he was from Overton.

Dr. Davis is my 4th great grandfather. I've been researching his children for a long time. They all came from Overton. I have records proving this.

Hi! Thank you for all you have and are doing on FindaGrave!
I talked with a representative of Speck Funeral Home, and he said that Melbadine was buried in the Emberton Cemetery in Clay County, as the obituary says. Are you familiar with the cemeteries in Clay County? He said that often people mistake assume that the Emberton and the Seiber and the same cemetery. Their records show that her burial was in the Emberton.
I personally walked this Cemetery, when I posted these. There is only one Sign - Seiber. I have heard others buried there are in the Emberton, but no sign of where one begins and ends and likewise the other.
So I cannot tell who is buried in which one, when there is only one sign?
Do you have something that shows she is in the Seiber and not the Emberton?
|David Buck||RE: Thomas and Mary Buck|
Sorry for taking so long to reply. I have visited the gravesites in Fentress County and found a nicely maintained grave markers for both Thomas and Mary Range Buck. It was located at Red Hill or Buck Cemetery, also referred to as Poor Cemetery as they are both next to each other, yet separated. The gravestones are not original, so some family member at some time has placed them there. Hopefully on the original site. The graves at Range Cemetery did not have a Marker for Mary Range Buck that I saw. If you will send me your email address to: firstname.lastname@example.org, I will send you a very nice slide program of all the graves of my ancestors, dating back to Jonathan Buck who is my 6th Great Grandfather. He was married to Zuriah Covalt and we think her grave is on the Eastern Tennessee town of Elizabeth City. I have not made that connection and no one seems to have found her grave that I am aware of. Please send me an email and I will send you what I have. It will be photos of the graves I found in about 7 cemeteries during a trip a few years ago. I was also back again last year stopping at Cookeville where a distant cousin showed me a couple other gravesites of our Buck ancestors. Hope to talk to you soon. David Buck
