|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in cemeteries and such since I was a little boy. It started waaaay back when I would visit my grandmother in Springfield, IL (I cannot count the number of times I have been to Lincoln's Tomb at Oak Ridge Cemetery). Since then, I have frequented many a final resting place across many parts of the USA.|
As for the transferring of memorial pages, I have no qualms about it, just as long as there is a good reason or sense behind the request.

|Milbrey Heard||RE: Anne Perkins|
I do have some additional information on her. According to the 1900 Census, she was born in Dec 1863 in Tennessee.
I know that she grew up on land that is now the eastern half of Audubon Park. My great grandmother Fannie Goodwyn (Anne's sister), grandfather, and father also grew up there. See http://www.memphisbotanicgarden.com/history, though some of the names are not quite right (i.e., James Robert Heard instead of James Abram Heard, Jr and Charles Perkins instead of Newton Cannon Perkins, Jr). So, Anne was born in Shelby County (may have been in White Station...not totally sure).
Unfortunately, I can't seem to find her death certificate on-line, but am assuming she also died in the Memphis area, as her husband and her children remained in Memphis.
She and her husband had three children, two of whom are also buried in Elmwood:
- Sarah Elizabeth Perkins(11062656) married James Seddon Allen (11062654)
- Newton Cannon Perkins, III (10712484) married Margaret Mann (10712550)
Her third child was Anne Goodwyn Perkins (15 Mar 1899 - Jan 1989) who married William Goodlett Phillips (17 Jun 1896 - Dec 1967). I don't see either of them in findagrave, but they both died in Memphis according to SSDI records. I fondly remember going to visit Cousin Anne as a child with my mother. You may want to check to see if they are also buried at Elmwood.
Thanks for all you do for Elmwood, findagrave, and all us amateur genealogists!

thank you so much-I don't live very far from this cemetery, but I seldom drive in Memphis anymore.
You've been a tremendous help.
|Melva "Jo" Wright||RE: Thank You|
Thanks for letting them know. I have linked his family to him. His name is Benjamin Hardin Hayden. The marker sure is showing its age.

|Mary Ann Lee||Sylvanus Polk, Jr.|
Patrick - Thanks for letting me know that I had the wrong photo posted on Mr. Polk's page. I have corrected it.
|Sue Lee Johnson||The Bridgforth's|
Patrick, THANK YOU for finding and photographing all the Bridgforth family for me! I was fortunate to be able to photograph an obscure, never before photographed 1800's Bridgforth cemetery located on a personal tract of land in Desoto County. There is a tiny baby buried there, Staten Bridgforth. I couldn't leave him there alone, so I set out to find his family. Through research found his family there at Elmwood. And you finished for me by finding their graves! Thank you for the great job you do!

Thanks for checking into this grave. Did the funeral home mention where the grave was moved to? Thanks.
