Bio Photo Recent trip to Hunter Cemetery, Maury Co. Mt. Pleasant, Tn. Two large trees have fallen and one missed the McGee memorial by about 2ft. Another tree fell and has destroyed the ts of Richard Stockard and about 6 others around it.
Wayne Austin and I are trying to get volunteers to go there and moved the trees and repair the stones that are damaged/destroyed. Any suggestion on how to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated. A photo on the memorial of Richard Stockard will show part of the damage.

Born and raised in Lewis and Maury County, Tennessee. Member of the National Society of Children of the American Revolutionary War.

Maury Co., Tn has many historical cemeteries. Many Rev. War soldiers are buried in Maury Co./Lewis Co. Tn., also many Civil War Generals, War of 1812, and their soldiers.

Researching, McLean/McClain/Stockard/Craig/Kennedy/Hunt/Cooper/Cook/
Cemetery preservation is very important to me and I try to list from actual cemetery visits and various book listings. I have been working with Wayne Austin for the last 10 years as a volunteer contributor for his project.
Please, e-mail me with any corrections or additional information that needs to be posted at any Maury County Cemetery where you see my name via the edit option on the memorial.

If I have posted a close relative of yours let me know and I will transfer. Please use the edit option on the memorial for updates, corrections and questions, my responce will be much faster, I don't have to look up the memorial by name that way.

RE: Alexander & Phoebe Bailey Beckum
Thanks, might explain why I can't locate any probate, estate or the like in Lewis County. I do know some other of the Beckums did go to Ellis County, so will try there.

Any idea how I get in touch with Lillian Roberts?

Thanks hon, and hope you are doing well!!

Hi cousin,

Just noticed on both of your memorials, it states both are thought to have died in Texas. I'm curious where you got that notion, as I'd love to explore the idea. The last record I have of them is in Lewis County. They were my 3rd g. grandparents.

Ambrose Hadley
Hi Mary,

I was very moved at finding my great-great grandfather's resting place. You listed him as Ambrose Haley, the only grave in the Haley Cemetery near Santa Fe, TN. I believe his name is Ambrose Hadley, rather than Haley, and that the cemetery was listed as Hadley in "They Passed This Way".

Thank you for posting this memorial. I've been looking for his grave for a while!!
