I am a member of the Big Black Creek Historical Association in Denmark, Tennessee. Old cemetery clearing and restoration is what I enjoy. I'm also the webmaster of a historical website www.bigblackcreekhistorical.com it has many old West Tennessee cemeteries pictured plus other historical items. My cemetery photographing area is normally within 40 miles of Denmark, Tennessee.
Shaw family Cemetery Thanks for contacting me and providing the link to your website. I visited it and it is a wonderful website. I was able to confirm with your photo that is the same cemetery. Yes I am a Shaw descendant but not of this Daniel Shaw. My Daniel A Shaw was born 1812 in NC and died in TX about 1876. There is a member on ancestry who seems to think my Daniel Shaw and their Daniel Shaw is the same person and is buried at that cemetery so I have tried to investigate. I see the dates of the Daniel Shaw of that cemetery are not even close so it's not the same one. Thanks for confirming the correct cemetery and the hard work you have done on the website.
Shaw family Cemetery Hi Tim I saw the photos you added for Shaw Family Cemetery. There is a photo of a barn on ancestry.com for this cemetery also. Can you confirm this is the same cemetery? I could send you this photo via email if needed. Kelly
Alexander Benthall Tim, Thanks so much for taking the time to search for a tombstone for Alexander Benthall. His death records indicates that is where he is buried but I guess no one was able to get his marker for him.
Allen McD. Cameron Tim. I really appreciate all of your efforts to find the grave marker for Allen M. Cameron in Union Grove Cemetery, Haywood County, Tenn. The Tennessee Death Record indicates that he is buried in Union Grove Cemetery but evidently in an unmarked grave, which happens a lot. He was unmarried so probably had no one to assure he had a marker.
RE: Ballard Hi Tim, Thank you for checking. The cemetery being in Brownsville makes a lot of sense, since that's where part of the maternal family had been living. I think it's safe to say they either didn't have markers or they've sunken into the ground. Thank you again for checking and for the verification on the cemetery. One mystery solved!
Ballard Hi Tim, Regarding Flora & Willie Ballard: Flora's death certificate states she was buried in "Woodland" cemetery in "Madison co". Willie's death certificate states he was buried in "Woodland" cemetery in "Mercer". They both died in Madison County. Do you know what cemetery this would actually be, if Woodland cemetery in Mercier, Madison county doesn't actually exist?
