Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history since 1987, over twenty years now. I am an avid reseacher and documentation is my pride.

I have a large collection of funeral memorbilia and do Victorian mourning talks. I had my display at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI for many years.

I have taken photos of all the burials in Dry Branch, Eastview, Shiloh and Howe Cemeteries in Benton Co, TN and added them to FAG. I have also taken many photo at Dalton Cemetery for family.

Enjoy visiting cemeteries and finding memorial symbols while taking photos for my family history volumes.

I take pride in joining this wonderful group of contributers on Find a Grave. Most of memorials have added information. I am not about numbers but want to assist others in finding more information about their family members.

I want to thank Rick Lambert for all the work he has done in Benton Co, TN cemeteries with memorials entered and photographs taken. I also want to thank him for all the tranfers he as given me. I will take good care of them all.

Thank you so VERY much for taking these pictures. It means the world for me since I am unable to drive to there and my sister and nephew are buried there.

James would be my Great Great Grandpa. Grave Memorial # 155042075. Sarah M Laughlin is Grave Memorial # 40559461

I have only recently found her. and James as a matter of fact. Was rereading information and got a new idea.

Thank you for your work.

Wade/Waid Fithen # 105417529
Hi Sharon,

Waid was my g-grandmother's 2nd cousin, and I've been researching this family for a few years. It looks like this present memorial was merged with his father's, Wade/Waid Fithen (it's a popular given name in this family!) I'd be happy to provide records that might help un-confuse this, if you'd like.

RE: Martin and Ada Palmer
You're welcome, I'm glad I could help. Also, in the same Palmer family plot was a marker for Dean L. Palmer, Page #74320434. I don't know the relationship, but I added a photo to his page as well, so you can check that out too if your interested.

RE: Walker family at Smyrna Cemetery
Sharon I went back by this evening and looked at every stone and didn't find anymore of the Walkers also I didn't see anymore pieces for the little stones I did re take the photos there was for some reason a stone for a daughter of S.W. & A Hamilton next to Edith Pigg her parents was a long ways to the other side of the cemetery from her I wonder if someone just piled the broken pieces in the same area.
SAmuel Walker's stone had some Grant surnames to the left of him and then it was a lot of blank space behind him where
Edith and Annie Walker was so I would say the others have an unmarked grave.

If I have better photos then I will add them and replace the others.

Sorry couldn't find any of the rest of them

RE: Walker family at Smyrna Cemetery
Sharon I will try and get back over there and see if I can find the others since I know what area they are in now im sure some of the broken stones might be for another one that is near Nannie

Hello. I found my grandparents on here and it says you manage the memorials. Howard Wayne Marshall 1943-2012 and Beverly Carol Marshall 1946-2013. I was wondering if you have any other information available about the two of them. Thanks for your time.
