Bio Photo "Show me [how you care for] your cemeteries and I will tell you what kind of people you have."
Benjamin Franklin

All of my ancestors for at least six generations are from Fentress county Tennessee. I have a great deal of interest in the history of that area.
I would love to have old family photos and would be glad to share mine!
I have found many cousins here on Find a Grave and would like to meet more.

"If I didn't have those people back there, I would never have had anything to write about. That's where I got all my stories from. My life is from them. I'm going to do everything to keep up for them, in memory. That is my duty from now until I die."
- Author Ernest J. Gaines explaining why he takes care of an old cemetery on the former plantation where five generations of his ancestors, going back to slavery, are buried.

Johnny Meek
Nathaniel Meek #64429297
I have put together notes from Gary Childs research. Since the date on the stone (18 SEP) and the will was probated (17 SEP 1827) that this could be Nathaniel Meek Sr. Please let me know if you feel this is strong enough evidence.
Johnny Meek

listed in the 1783-1786 tax lists of Morgan TWP, Washington Co., PA. He was listed in the 1790 census of Washington C., PA (1-6-3) In 1794 he signed an oath of allegiance in West Bethlehem TWP. He witnessed the will of William Iiams on 20 FEB 1795 in Washington Co., PA. The will abstract mentions "land bought of Charles Barns and Nathan Meek executor."
He paid taxes for land on Wolf Creek in Pulaski Co., KY from 1802 to 1812.
By the year 1817 Nathaniel Meek Sr. and most of his children had left Pulaski County, Kentucky and were in the process of migrating to Jennings County, Indiana. Nathaniel Meek Sr. and Basil Meek lived in close proximity to one another in Pulaski County for 16 to 18 years.
(ed. Note: DNA testing has shown that Basil and Nathaniel Meek are related)
They lived as neighbors until 1822 or so, when at that time, Nathaniel Meek Sr. returned to Pulaski County, Ky. Basil stayed in Jennings County, living near the children of Nathaniel Meek Sr. until 1832 or 1833 when at that time he moved to the state of Illinois where some of his own children had moved earlier. During his lifetime Nathaniel Meek is known to have resided in the states of Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Indiana. His will was dated 9 Oct 1826 and probated 17 Sep 1827 in Pulaski Co., KY. He left everything to his daughter Polly Spenser.

Neeley cemetery Owen County, Indiana
We went to the Neeley cemetery, my ancestors Josiah W. Neeley and Elizabeth Neeley are buried there, and with no trespassing sign on gate we located the land owners caretaker which gave us permission to go in but we did not think to get his phone number or address to contact him to go back, would you know that information? Thank you! Frances Hickman email

Andrew Conatser memorial
Hello Casey. I was wondering where you obtained your information about Andrew Conatser on memorial 57320290. There is also another memorial for Andrew, 48303993. Of course, they may or may not be the same person but ancestry thinks they are. Andrew married Mary Ann Blevins, my ggg grandparents; Tteir son, Andrew Joseph Conatser, married Clementine Evans; their daughter, Caldonia, married Samuel Barlow Hobbs; their daughter, Flora Andrew, married Bradley Owen Boulton, my grandparents. Any info you can supply to me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Casey, this is a duplicate memorial and you have a great photograph on it. Tony Jeffries created James H Moore # 67869060 in 2011 and there is not a picture, but has many relationships tied to it. Would you mind putting a copy of your photograph on the 67869060? I am going to delete my photograph request with a problem associated with it. Thanks so much and Happy New Year!! So proud of your new found trade and the great successes you are having!

Steve Franklin
Jahue Winningham
Hi Casey,

I am researching the George W. Franklin and Dicey Smith line of Franklin's in Overton/Fentress County TN as part of my Franklin Y-DNA project. A direct descendant of this Franklin line has taken a Y-DNA test and matches with me and 19 other Franklin's in my Y-DNA project. What confuses me is how the Jahue Winningham fits in as a child of George Franklin? My understanding from the records is George was married to Dicey Smith who died around 1872. George I understand died in the civil war with his father Edward Franklin? The line I am tracing on the Y-DNA match is George son James Campbell Franklin and his brother John Allen Franklin, both who died in Chico, Butte Co. CA. I can be reached at My oldest known Franklin ancestor goes back to Edward Franklin Sr. born circa 1696 Essex Co. VA and his brother Lawrence Franklin Sr. circa 1698 Essex Co. VA. Thanks.
