Samuel Word
I was in Forestvale Cemetery (Helena) this morning to take a picture of the grave for Robert Lee Word. Nearby was a stone for Samuel Word so it seems he was not buried in the Virginia City cemetery. I added a picture of Samuel's stone to his memorial along with the big WORD stone that is in the plot. There are some of children and at least one grandchild buried in that plot.

Thank you,

I only sent the obit because I did not know if you had seen it or not. Sometimes when a memorial is made earlier before the death, the manager may not know of the death. So it was not intended for you to add unless you wanted to. As for myself I do not add obituaries until the funeral is over. So all this notification was for was to let you know the death date if you did not. You would be surprised how many managers do not update. You have a very nice memorial for her.She sounds like an amazing woman. MHN

Here's more on William W. Buford:

From "Tennessee State Marriages, 1765-2002", posted at
Davidson County, (p. 95): Edward Buford married Rebecca Buford on 5 OCT 1809.

Rebecca P. Buford was the daughter of Byrd Buford, and granddaughter of James Warren Buford, Jr. and his wife Mary Buford born 1735. Rebecca died on 8 JUL 1825.

This Edward Buford married second Amanda Pugh, daughter of James and Sarah Pugh of NC, on 18 DEC 1826; and after Edward died in 1828 in Williamson County TN, she married second Gabriel Buford, son of Josiah Buford. See also Edward Buford Estate Record.jpg stored on hard drive.

Edward W. and Rebecca P. Buford's son William Wirt Buford (b: 6 DEC 1818; d: 11 SEP 1888) married first Eleanor Ray Pointer, and bore 5 sons and 2 daughter. Eleanor died on 11 DEC 1856, shortly after the birth of her last child, Eleanor Louise.

William Wirt and Eleanor Pointer Buford's second son, Edward L. Buford (4 APR 1842 in Williamson County TN; d: 11 JUN 1928 in Davidson County TN; buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Davidson County TN), married Lizinka Elliston on 9 NOV 1875. He served with Clack's 3rd TN Infantry, and was captured at Ft. Donelson TN, and at McKernan's Island AL.

RE: Abraham Tennyson
He was my 4th grandfather. His daughter, Mary Phoebe Tennison married Cornelius Brandon. My line goes down from Abraham Brandon, their son.

While searching for another grave in Christiana, TN, I found Robert and his family. There is no 'Christiana' cemetery. The Jamesons are in 'Miller Cemetery' in Christiana, TN. I will post the picture I took of what remains of Robert's marker along with Fannie (1863-1900), Mary (1886-91), and 'Our Babe' (Oct 25 1892). I will post Robert's marker and you can transfer the monument to 'Miller Cemetery' if you would like and I will post the other three photos there.
