Genealogy has become one of my favorite obsessions. I've found it sometimes frustrating but mostly rewarding. It's been especially rewarding to meet other people with similar motivation. Thanks to one and all! You more experienced folk have been gracious and have helped me continue. When I make mistakes, please don't be afraid to tell me. If you have a family member you're looking for in the Nashville area, please let me know!
Thomas gerdner neeley In reference to #59177045. I have reviewed land records signed by this man and his middle name signed by him is Gillington not Gerdner. Several years ago I posted Gerdner as an unproven possible middle name, and now everyone posts it as his name. I can get no one to change it even showing proof. Sullivan county Indiana land records.
RE: Doris Brown photo SO pleased that I could help! I don't even know what a person has to go through/fill out in order to request a photo, just what I do on my end. I do know that the Mountain View Cemetery in Walla Walla has a database through the City that I can use to search for anyone buried there, regardless of whether there is a memorial on Find A Grave. It is what I utilize to better try and pinpoint the exact location in the cemetery, (which houses the remains of more than 30,000 people). In the case of Doris, and many other wives that I have seen, sometimes it is just the husband's name that has a memorial set up and the wife just "falls through the cracks" sometimes. But the computerized database "knows everything", I would say!!
RE: Doris Brown photo Hey Dan! I found C Vernon Brown's memorial here on Find-A-Grave (Find A Grave Memorial# 58612248) with Doris E buried beside him on a double stone that is pictured on HIS memorial page. Is that at all helpful to you, or do you need more?
Let me know if I there is something else regarding this family branch I can help with.
P.S. Never been to Tennessee, although I probably have some kind there I never met!
J. David McFarland Also, on my last trip to Nevada, I found an article from the Nevada Daily Mail death files: 'A man named McFarland whose home is in the vicinity of Walker, died at the home of Mr. Denton, in the north part of this city, Thursday evening, Nov 9, 1887, of heart disease. The deceased had been to Arkansas on a hunting expedition and was enroute home." Any thoughts on this being J. David McFarland?
