Bio and Links
Bio Photo We completed a survey of all known cemeteries in McMinn County plus transcribed McMinn County death certificates from 1914-1955.
Surnames we are reseaching: Marvin's lineage = Templin, Click, Bryant, Sisk, Smith, Waddell, Gross. Samme's lineage = Carpenter, Simpson, Hutsell, Julian, Warren
Whenever we go out to fill a request, we try to take photos of a few of the surrounding burials. Never know when you might help someone find a lost relative. We also take tombstone pictures of any veterans we see, as we try to honor ALL VETERANS regardless of when they served.
A big "THANK YOU" to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers who have taken tombstone pictures for us.
We are always working on adding veterans to national cemeteries. Our way of honoring our veterans.
***** When asking for a memorial transfer, PLEASE PLEASE use "Edit" then "Suggest A Correction" instead of posting message here. Thanks*****

Going today. First time there. I plan not to talk to anyone and hope they do not kick me out. From the request list only 8 have the exact location so I will look for those.

Hello, I am trying to locate the grave for my ancestor who died in the Civil War. I came across this marker and tried to enlarge the picture to read the name to see if it possibly was F F Leonard.

My Ancestor is:
Franklin Fernando Leonard ( F F Leonard)

Enlisted in Company F, 1st Cavalry Regiment Wisconsin on 10 Sep 1861. Died of disease Company F, 1st Cavalry Regiment Wisconsin on 2 Jun 1862 at Cape Girardeau, MO.

Any information is appreciated.

See if you can contact Arlington for an exact location of the stone. I will be in the area on 1/18/17 and will look if it not raining.

I'm sorry, I should have added the request for transfer of his wife also.
Again our thanks.

I wanted to thank you for creating this memorial! My Brother in law asked me to help him with his tree and was thrilled to see you had already created this for his father. Would you consider transferring to me for further maintenance?
Thank you for all you are doing!

RE: Dorothy Smith
You're Welcome!! I am almost done with the entire cemetery and wondering if I'm going to come across the other few requests along the way.

Veteran headstone
Thank you for photographing my great-uncle's headstone...Albert P. Ringressy. He was a veteran who served from 1902 thru the end of WW2. I added photos to his page. Thanks again!
