Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my ancestors and many East Tennessee families for over 30 years. I have worked in consultation with the East Tennessee Historical Society and made contributions to the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection in order to preserve the work and contributions of Andrew K. Gregory to the establishment of the Smoky Mountain National Park.

My fondness for genealogical research and my interest in research methodology were some of the motivating factors in pursuing a PhD. This early research background served me well in my studies. My greatest passion, however, is the preservation and upkeep of historical cemeteries. It is important that these cemeteries are preserved for future generations, so that the story of our nations early pioneers can be told.

I am related to the following families:

Mother's Side: Flynn (Flinn), Gregory, Oliver, Hatcher, Stafford, Gann, Headrick, Carver, Burchfield, Thurman, Davis, and Hodge.

Father's Side: Huskey, Ogle, Trotter, Emert, McCarter, Ownby, Haggard, Reagan, and Koone (Koontz).

My wife, on the other hand, has a more impressive genealogy. She is a Chenery. She is a descendant of many of the first families of Virginia, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. In fact, she is related to the Chenery family who owned the Triple Crown winning horse, Secretariat. She is also a direct descendant of Roger Williams who founded Providence, Rhode Island, and who is considered the father of the Baptist denomination in America. Also, she is related to great historical figures, such as Chief Justice John Marshall and President Thomas Jefferson. I have been fortunate that many of her ancestors have already been traced with extensive documentation.

Note: It is never my intention to duplicate memorial entries. If you notice a duplicate and your memorial was entered first, I will be more than willing to delete the one I entered.

Temple John Dykes
You memorialize Temple James Dykes 93907014. as follows:
Atchley Funeral Home Records, Volume III, 1974-1986, Larry D. Fox, (Smoky Mountain Historical Society), 20 Sep 1997.

"Dykes, Temple John 74 div b. 5-21-1923 Sev Co d. 9-20-97 DOA SMC res 1566 Boyds Creek Hwy Sey police officer f. John Dykes m. Willie Temple WW II veteran educa 12 Boyd's Creek Cem Survivors: 3 dau Patricia & Doug Griffith Andy & Steve Davis 7320 Wheatfield Pl Knox Lisa Dykes 3 gc Lane Griffith Ryan Griffith Blair Griffith special Friend Mary King several cousins."

Please translate and interpret the abbreviations you use in the Dykes memorial. I believe that Mr. Dykes may have been a member of the Metropolitan Police Department, Washington, DC. Please advise if this is accurate.

Queen Victoria "Queenie" Woodruff Mills
I've been searching for Queenie for a very long time. I was wondering how you found her in Boogertown Cemetery? I've never been able to find a death certificate or burial records. All research shows her last residence as Sevier County, so I am not doubting she is in Boogertown since that's the area her son lived in. I am just curious how you found her.

Thank you for your time,

Caleb S. Emert
My name is Ben Norvell. I've been trying trying to do some research on my family tree. I noticed that you had some information on Caleb Emert. I have seen sources saying he was buried in Broyles Cemetery in Rutherford County, and I've seen others that say he was buried in Wears Valley, TN. Do you have anymore information about this? Thank you for your time!
