Bio and Links
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.

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.

james algernon english
My father was James Algernon English, Jr., and I notice you don't have him listed as a child of James Algernon English, Maury County, Tennessee in Arlington Cemetery. I would like you to add him to the list of children. You have all my aunts and uncles. He was born in Maury County in 1907 and died in Orlando, FL,

93619408 Abdallah Brunson
Hi, I have been trying to find the grave for the father of Abdallah. His name was Joshua Brunson, SR b 1755 in St. Mark, Craven, SC, USA
d 1838 in Pulaski, Giles, TN, USA

His other relatives all seem to be in the Mt. Moriah cemetery. Any ideas on what I can do?

RE: Bull Cemetery
I found where the information came from and it's not copyright, you should remember it was for Ancestry he did the mapping of the Bull Cemetery.
It also involved you.

This cemetery was visited and the memorials photographed by Wayne Austin 28 Sep 2010. The listing was then transcribed & edited by Mary Bob McClain. Preliminary typing by Faye Bradford. Formatted and added here 16 Mar 2011 by Wayne Austin. This cemetery also listed on page 64, Giles County Cemetery book by the Giles County Historical Society. 1989. This book continues to be an important source of cemetery and genealogy information for Giles County Tennessee.

RE: Bull Cemetery
I will look at my email's, someone sent me those pictures, I don't think they belong to him, I don't know how else I could have got his pictures, especially if I don't know who he is, but I corresponded with the Historical Society about 18 years ago, and I kept all the correspondence from them and will see if I can find his information and letter so I can write him to make sure where those pictures came from I didn't get them from Mr. Austin. Thank god for keeping a paper trail. Anyone can take pictures of the graves and not have a copyright fact have him email me, because I didn't post anything that was his, this is a beautiful cemetery and beautiful memorials, and my pictures have junk cars etc. parked next to the cemetery. I don't think anyone that takes pictures of a cemetery is going to show cars also in his pictures.

RE: Bull Cemetery
Who is Mr. Bob Austin how do I get in contact with him? I have been doing genealogy for over 20 years, and someone sent me those pictures. The Cemetery is my relatives, the historical society also sent me information. Adrian Bull was my Great- Great- Great Grandfather's brother. Robert Bull and Adrian married sisters. You know pictures can be taken by request of the cemetery. I will have to make a trip there and take pictures I guess, now one complained before. I have not seen any pictures of his of the Bull Cemetery. My Great Great Grandmother was Elizabeth Bull. If I intrude on Mr. Austin's pictures I can remove them. Let me know who he is and what his email is. Also Adrian donated the cemetery and the land and other land to Elton, Giles County, Tennessee.

RE: Ben &Elizabeth Wilkins
Their son, Benjamin born March 1897 in Hickman county, TN, died March 1980 in Paradise Valley, Arizona. Since he has no memorial to be linked to his parents, I wondered if you would be willing to include a note of either of their memorials.
