Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Middle Tennessean happy to keep an eye out for relatives of others while pursuing my favorite hobby, searching for interesting grave shelters in small, rural cemeteries. Gravehouses, shelters, tents, rock tombs and cairns--they're all vanishing quickly, so will take them where I can find them, and appreciate your suggestions. The motherlode of rock tents/combs, the Cumberland Plateau and Highland Rim, are my favorite stomping grounds.

Thanks to all of you who have added photos to my memorials! I'm willing to fill photo requests in out-of-the-way places, as long as you're not in a hurry. If corrections are needed to memorials I've added, or if you would like additional information, please leave a message here or send email to my address.

You are welcome to use my photos for non-commercial purposes without obtaining my prior permission, as long as their use is within the rules and guidelines of, and provided the ownership source is clearly stated each time.

I am not directly related to many people for whom I've created memorials, so please feel free to ask for a transfer. If I've made a mistake on a memorial, and you can shed light on the subject, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Am always on the lookout for Berry (Hulme, Wiltshire, Vowell, Malone, Jefferson), Carothers (Turner, Potts, Nevins, Jordan, Whitsitt), Wilkerson (King, Barnes, Dowdy, Goodwin, Buchanan) and Rucker (all of the above, plus Bumpass, Morton, and everyone else in TN, KY, and VA).

It's a delight to be part of the awesome assembly that is Find A Grave!

John Crouch
One more thing. Meant to tell you I went back and found the photo for John Crouch and added it to his memorial.

John Crouch

Thanks for the correction on the photo for John Crouch. You know, some days you are working with so many photos things can get confusing!

By the way, that Kenneday I had the photo for is related to Mr. Crouch somehow. That headstone was mixed in with the Crouches and some of the other headstones were for people with both names - Crouch and Kenneday. So the two families married at some point.

Anyway, thanks again and have a nice evening!

Harriet -

I told you it was fate. You may want to check out the Berry memorials, too.

hey! i dont have much, but i did find where Thomas Warmath was mentioned in court after the death of his brother John in regards to John's property, also shortly after Thomas's death his estate was litigated against and it took about 3 years to settle with a large portion of his estate being sold by the county court to pay debt, most of his brothers remaining property was sold to pay debts from his brothers estate and the rest was disposed of and the value appears to have been paid to creditors with the remainder split between heirs. most of the family by then had moved to Gibson county, TN. both the cases can be found in the nashville archives for tennessee supreme court cases and davidson county court cases. ive only read the summaries as i havent made it to nashville yet to pull the full case files. i dont know how Mary died but the date on the memorial online reflects thomas's death date, her stone is buried and cant read the bottom. she was still alive in 1850 but find no trace of her after his death, im hoping when i review the court documents it will clear up if she were alive at his death or not. the warmaths owned most of the property which the state mental hospital was built on and they also appear to have had at least business relations with the Rains and Gowan (Goin, Going) families who were original settling families, i find more and more interestig ties as i go, im actually researching the Baker connection within this tangled mess lol

RE: Ruckers in Williamson County
Sorry to be so long in answering. Yes, I appreciate your work on the Ruckers. I got delayed in getting back to them due to a death in the family. I have been assisting nieces and nephews to finish a sister-in-laws family that she had researched, but had not gotten on the website. I would love to connect and share any information I have about the Ruckers. I have pictures of the pontoon boat that they invented to do trade on the rivers. I have thought about attending the Rucker Reunion, but it is ususally to far away and at the same time my family, Wassons, or in-laws are having celebrations.

Keep up your good work.
Thanks cousin, Mary Nan White

RE: STF Kirkpatrick
Harriet: I am pleased the information was helpful to you. I am not related, even distantly. My interest is because Brother Kirkpatrick was a minister/preacher for churches of Christ. Along with several others, we are trying to build up the Find A Grave data base with memorials for all of these soldiers of the cross. If you need or want to transfer maintenance, I will accept it. Know that I am 70, so I have made arrangements for my maintenance responsibilities to shift to a responsible person should I become disabled or die. Yours in Christ, Ron
