Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Memphis, Tennessee, an Elmwood Cemetery interpreter and a historic property docent. Local gay historian and writer. Have memorials for the Astor, Garavelli and Hill families related to me and some interesting personages I know about.
I will be posting more photos so my family members will become real people again and not just some leftovers under the grass.

Jesse Hollowell, b.1874
Hello Vincent

The 1880 census, Benton County, Tennessee for the household of Redden Hollowell lists a Piety Hollowell, b. 1873. Some sites list her as Piety (Jesse) Hollowell. I found a Jesse (Piety) Hollowell on the Find-A-Grave site with your name as the contact. This Jesse Hollowell was married 3 times: #1 Oscar Astor, #2 William Rufus Pardue,
and #3 Richard High.

Do you have more information on this Jesse Hollowell, i.e., birth parents, brothers and/or sisters?

Thank You Vincent

Richard High
Mr High is buried about 15 feet South from the stone of the pic and very near the fence. He has no marker. I've sent an edit regarding plot #. Sorry.

John Loague
None of the Loague family have gravestones. Their lot has a 'gate plate' and name, but that's it. About 10 are buried in the lot. Pics of the lot posted and an edit regarding location submitted.

RE: Francis Abbott
You could always contact the other person and ask what they'd like to do. Perhaps you can come to an agreement on sharing info and who needs to delete their memorial? It's worth a try.

Tagging Others in Bio's
I have noticed you tag the deceased family members in their Bio's and I am trying to figure out how that is done.

Hi Vincent. I noticed that you had posted some photos of Margaret Jamison Hinds on this site. I am almost sure that I was related to her husband, Milbourn Hinds. I know I was if his mother was Alice Gartrell Hinds, who definitely had a son who used that variation of the spelling of the name. I cannot seem to find an obit for Margaret or Milbourn. Seems like Milbourn also had a brother. If you know anything about this family please let me know at Thanks
