|Bio and Links|
|I've been researching my family for almost 20 years, starting with my maternal grandparents. They were born in Campbell County, Tennessee and migrated by covered wagon to Oklahoma. |
I have tried to restrict my memorials to my direct paternal and maternal family lines, the grandparents of various degrees. Then somehow some aunts and uncles of various degrees were included, then a few cousins, then . . .
Of course, Find A Grave requires that we know where are ancestors are buried in order to create memorials on this web site, thus, the further we go back the fewer memorials we each have because we do not know where those early ancestors are. However, there are known burial locations for at least two of my ancestors that go waaaaay, way back. You might want to visit their memorials:
William and Matilda . They are my 28th great grandparents on my paternal grandmother's side of the family. When you get back that far, you have a LOT of cousins.
PS: In April 2015 I submitted DNA to Ancestry.com. I have a match going back to an ancestor whose ancestry is known to antiquity. In other words, his ancestry is known all the way back to William 1 -- and that means I match too!
Find A Grave statement regarding headstones:
How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone.
Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive on a headstone.
Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones.
I invite researchers of East Tennessee to the memorial for Peter Graham Fulkerson . The name P.G. Fulkerson is probably more familiar. P.G. was a farmer, lawyer, judge and district attorney general who also had an interest in history and genealogy. He created brief records, perhaps a paragraph or two, of some of the early settlers of Claiborne County. As he created for some of my ancestors, his memorial is my brief record, a paragraph or two, of The Honorable Peter Graham Fulkerson.
Take time to follow the link on his memorial to his answers to The Tennessee Civil War Veterans Questionnaires.

Good morning Miss Janet. You are very welcome.

Hi Janet - Corrections/additions made to the above. Thanks for the input!

Not sure why you could not make a request for the photo, but that is an excellent idea. I was able to make a photo request and will see what happens. I agree with you concern about all manner of items that are added to various memorials that do not really enhance the memorial aesthetically. Thanks for your note. Theodore is a distant cousin (though marriage) on my father's side, and I was very touched when I came across the letters he wrote so long ago.

You are very welcome sweet pea!

Wanda's photo transferred from the Hatch Valley High yearbook and I should post the link soon. I have done some work at the Garden of Memories to keep the memories alive

This is an area that my Cousin researched and even did a paper for a college class on and right now she is busy with taxes and such so the most that I got I believe was that it started with a Calvin Dossett that later became Calvin Parrott. I will try to find out more for you soon.

Well that is where some of my Parrott's are from so we maybe on to something here. I still have not ran into anything on Dossett but I will check with another Parrott Cousin and see what she has come across.

|Larry & Edie Doepel||RE: Parrott/Lindsay|
You are very welcome!
no I am sorry I have not heard of any family having the name Dossett then going to Parrott. What area is this that your Dossett/Parrott from?
