Bio and Links
Many years into my hobby of genealogy, I find so much important information on Find A Grave that I like to add what I can so that others will find links they can use.

My research is of Mustaine, Pittenger, Dial, Newton, Deadmon, and Burden families. Areas where these families lived include Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma and Mississippi.

I am happy to add links for you, or additional information, and will transfer memorials to you, using the Find A Grave guidelines.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 43407767
I'm wondering if there is an "empty" plot next to Betty Josephine where her mother was buried. I would think she would have purchased a plot next to her daughter. Phila Ann was A.P.'s second wife. He had multiple children with the first wife, so he might be buried elsewhere.

Phila Ann's parents are buried in another cemetery where there has been much destruction of the markers. My husband and I went there in 2013 and found a mess. Thankfully someone had photographed the marker. Phila's brother and his wife, my husband's 3rd greats marker is missing.
Phila Ann's nephew and brother-in-law handled her estate so I assume they knew her wishes.
May I copy Betty Josephine's marker picture for Ancestry and give you full credit for the photograph? The provenance for the picture is important.I hope the marker is still there but it has been a number of years since you posted the picture.

Thank you for making the picture of the memorial for Betty Josephine Greer.

I thought that you might enjoy reading how that marker came to be. As I was researching Betty Josephine Greer, I found this quote in her mother's will.

As I was researching Betty Josephine Greer, I came across this wonderful quote from her mother's will. [p. 154 Warren County, Tennessee Inventories and Wills 1880-1887]

"I will and direct that when said house and lot is sold by my said Executors that they apply the proceeds to the purchase and the erection of a suitable and proper monument over my only child Betty Josephine whose body sleeps in the old cemetery at McMinnville as she was my only child and lay very near my heart." Phila Ann Greer

10th day of June 1881

Betty Josephine's mother was Phila Ann Riggs Greer. Her father was A.P. Greer. They married 5 January 1863 in Warren County, Tennessee.

I have been unable to locate either Phila Ann's or A.P. Greer's burials, but I do know that the monument, according to the final settlement records of the estate was placed 24 July 1884 after the sale of Phila Ann's house and the death of her father.

Thank you! I was born & raised in Houston but now live in Louisiana. I am related to the Robbins family through the Luter/Lewters from Smith County. My grandfather was born in Tyler and then moved to Houston as a young man. His mother was a Lewter. Blessings, Terry

HI -
Thanks for calling this to my attention. I had fulfilled a photo request for Vera Mae and now I see I maid an error in Dora Mae. I will delete the one I added for Dora. Sadly, Gary Wills (who set up Vera) has passed away. You can ask F.A.G. to attach er husband.

Again, thanks for writing.
