RE: Meddie Pendleton
I'm transferring Meddie's memorial to you, but I'd like to retain her husband William Pendleton's memorial, as he is a cousin of my Pendleton ancestors. I look forward to seeing what you add to Meddie's memorial.

RE: Ferry Operators at Cleece's
Jerry, I didnt realize the information originally came from you until he sent me a copy of the picture and I asked for the source. The source linked to the findagrave memorial that you created. I thanked him for trying. A kind lady that has done a lot of West Nashville research and is also a writer said she will check her files to see if she has anything. I wonder if the John Hulan mentioned in the obit was the son of William Ashville "Bud" Hulan. Bud and my GG Grandfather (George) were brothers. Bud ran the ferry in the early 1900's and is buried in a cemetery in Bells Bend.

RE: Ferry Operators at Cleece's
I have found some information on Bedford Bloodworth! I posted the question on a facebook group "I remember Nashville When". Many people have posted pictures and commented on the Nashville ferryboats so I thought I would give it a shot...

"Bedford Bloodworth was born about 1815. He was married to Polly Sullivan on 17 May 1837 in Davidson County, TN and they produced a large family. He was a Private in the Confederate Army and served in the 18th TN Regiment. He was taken prisoner at Ft. Donelson & on Feb. 16, 1862 was sent to Camp Butler in Springfield, IL. He was later exchanged in Vicksburg, MS. After the war and while operating the Hyde's Ferry near his home, he fell from the ferry and drowned. He died after 1862 but the exact date is not known. The location of his grave also is not known. It was believed that he was buried very near the river where he died.

The obit of the Nashville Banner Newspaper, thursday evening, March 31, 1927, p. 16: John H. Bloodworth, a farmer of Hydes Ferry, died wednesday night at his home. Seventy-Seven years old, he had been a member of the Scottsboro Methodist Church for many years. J.F. Bloodworth and R.L. Bloodworth, sons, survive with four daughters, Mrs. J.B. Harper, Mrs. C.F. Wittemeier, Mrs. John Hulan and Mrs. E.O. Bolin. A sister, Mrs. J.W. Jenkins, also survives. Funeral services will be held in the Scottsboro Methodist Church friday morning at 10 o'clock conducted by the Rev. T.A. Matthews. Burial will take place in the Hicks family cemetery. J.B. Harper, E.O. Bolin, C.F. Wittemeier, John Hulan, Erby Bloodworth and Russell Wittemeier, his sons-in-law and grandsons, will serve as pallbearers. (End of obit). His father was Bedford Bloodworth and his mother was Holly Sullivan. Cause of death on the death certificate is illegible but contains the word "streptococcal". The obit says he was interred in the Hicks Burial Grounds but today it is known as the Randall-Parker Cemetery in Scottsboro, Davidson County, TN. He had been married to Malissa Catherine Brady but she died Feb 25, 1925."

There is also a link to a video of the ferry... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ5yQOx8Mfk

I have not. I don't have any information about the ferry that far back. I will check it out though. Have you searched for him on familysearch.org ?

RE: Joseph Stanger Photo
LOL! Thanks for the compliment but I'm not really terribly quick. I already had the photo, that's all.

Glad you are happy. Sorry the stone was so worn. Hard to get a good pic when they are so worn.

Martha Moss King parental link
Jerry: Per your suggestion I linked the parents of Martha Moss King with her Find A Grave site. I'm not that familiar with editing that website so I hope I did it correctly. My only reason for listing her to begin with was she was married to my grandfather's half brother, Jacob Love King. I noticed the website offers chance to transfer management to others. If you would like me to transfer Martha to your control just let me know and will comply.
Thanks for letting me know her parents info because my ancestry.com info on her was wrong. Now I can update on that website.
