|Bio and Links|
I've been researching my family for about 15 years, starting with my maternal grandparents. They were born in Campbell County, Tennessee and migrated by covered wagon to Oklahoma. |
As we all know, families separate, moving on to distant locations. Find A Grave enables us to link families together in these cyber cemeteries, thanks to hundreds of volunteer memorial creators and photographers. As you can see on this profile, I have only created half of the memorials I manage. The rest of them were graciously transferred to me by those who originally created memorials for my family and to them I am deeply grateful.
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 interred. 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.
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. By related, this does not mean, for example, if you are a third cousin three times removed.
Gravestones should never be cleaned with anything but water and a soft brush. Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.
Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive.
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.

But how do I delete the cemetery I created?

Thanks for the note.
I would love to know how to set that up. Can you tell me what to do or select and I can follow the directions.

Janet, I just wanted to thank you for the history you supplied for Peter Pierce #7886486 & his wife, Margaret Leach #50833155 & dau: Alice Dossett / Parrott #91464019, which is where I become related through her husband Wm.....
This history was so interesting & much more personal than we ever learned in school.....I have learned more about the Civil War, WWI & WWII since I have been researching on Ancestry & now Find A Grave connecting burial sites for relatives is even more enlightening.....

My husband and I walked section 24 looking for John Deck in Forest Hill. I could not find him. I found John and Janet. Is he suppose to be buried by them? I will have to have someone from Forest Hill help me next time I am there.
