Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm originally from Salt Lake City, Utah. I entered the U.S. Army in 1971 and have been away form "home" most of the time since. I graduated from Utah State University in 1981 and retired from the Army in 1994.I have lived in Carter County, Tennessee longer than any place else and have learned to love this place and it's history. In addition to filling photo requests, I am working on getting accurate map locations for all the Carter County Cemeteries.

RE: Martha Hyder Treadway
thank you so much for locating this cemetery. I live in Florida and have only been able to visit Carter County once...a about six years ago now.

My mother is a Treadway...her family is from Fayette County, TN...but her g-grandparents migrated from Happy Valley in Carter County about 1890 to Fayette County and are connected to the Treadway, Hyder, Pugh families of East Tennessee and West North Carolina (general areas).

The Morgan Treadway and Martha Pugh Treadway buried at Cave Springs are my g-g-g-grandparents.

RE: Other Carter County Cemeteries
I thank you for adding the photo to my listing for Lydia Boone Powell. I noted with interest your photos of the Collins Cemetery on Simerly Creek Road in Carter County. I have a great aunt and a great uncle interred there and used to go to the "decoration" there with my grandparents. I recognize many persons whose graves you have photographed in Carter County. Keep up the excellent work! Shane Usary

Other Carter County Cemeteries
I am finding it absolutely wonderful exploring your many photos of Carter County cemeteries, some of which contain the remains of my relatives and many, many of which I visited with my grandfather, the late W. B. Street of Tiger Valley, during my long lost youth. Thanks ever so much for a wonderful photographic record of Carter County's many interesting old cemeteries.

The "Plot" Thickens
I looked up some of your photos and found that you have, indeed, photographed the grave of my great-Aunt Lydia, in the Miller Cemetery (the one that I incorrectly identified as the Boone Cemetery, based on what some Roan Mountain flk had told me). I'm very glad to know this and can now make the necessary correction. Thanks again.

Lydia Boone Powell
Thanks for your message re my great-aunt Lydia Powell. I believe the cemetery in which she was interred is properly denominated "Boone Cemetery," but am not absolutely certain. It is located on Heaton Creek Road in Carter County, on the left as you go "up the creek," just past what was once known as the Joe Smithdeal farm. It was overgrown for decades and only restored back in the eighties, I think. Both my Boone and Tipton great-great grandparents are buried there, as is my great-uncle Dave Boone, whom I never knew. It may be that no one has yet purchased a marker for Aunt Lydia. Incidentally, there is another "Boone Cemetery" just down the road, a private cemetery in which are interred Aunt Lydia's parents (and my great-grandparents), James and Loretta Tipton Boone, along with Vearl and John Boone.

RE: Jane Blackburn
Oh I love looking for old cemeteries! I do genealogy research too and its just an indoor exploration but I'd much rather be in the field searching. Nothing in my county to look for! LOL!

Continue your great work!

Thanks for the photo
Its quite unique and its my favorite that so far I've seen and I've seen many, so pretty but so basic!

Good day Loyal,
I have added an obituary to Mrs. Winters memorial that was published in the Elizabethton Star at the time of her passing. You can view this on her memorial at: 166294682.
I hope this information will assist you in your search.
