I am working on the Darling Gilbert 'Dee' and Carrie Magnolia Bishop Tidwell family. They married into the Larned family and I am interested in purchasing a copy of your book about the Larned Family. Could you email me at and let me know if you have any copies left and how much it is and how to get the money to you. I am also on facebook in case you happen to be on it user name is Shirley Grant Farrell, you can send me a private message that way, too.
Thanks; Shirley

Josephus Learned
I am from Buffalo, NY originally and doing genealogy research on relatives has taken me to a lot of cemeteries. With the invention of digital cameras we have also taken pictures of non relatives tombstones and put them on

The tombstones of Josephus, Frances and Mary Learned are not relatives. If you would like to manage them I would be happy to transfer them to you.

Drop me an e-mail if interested.

Martha Larned, Detroit
Johney -

I am a descendent of Martha Larned and Francis Palms. Martha was part native american. She married Francis Palms then she died of the Cholera epidemic in Detroit. Not sure but my research tells me she was raised by the Larned family, (or the William May family). Both who were sympathetic to Native Americans?

Can you shed some light on this.... ?

Hello Cousin
I just wanted to commend you for all the effort you've made here, in honoring your ancestors. Obviously, we both have a great affection for remembering & maintaining our family history. I got to visit with your mom in Haskell one aftrnoon a few years ago (she was my favorite sunday school teacher when we were little kids in Haskell). At the time we visited, i had just heard that she and Melvin Turnbow i believe, are brother/sister. I always wondered how their could be other Turnbows in Haskell, and wondered if we were related. When i visited your mom, I quickly learned that we all are indeed cousins, through my Grandmother Mattie Ann Turnbow (Mattie's mother was a Tharp of Lewis Co., Tenn). Your mom told me (if my memory is serving correctly - few yrs now), that Mattie's mother was a sister of your mom's grandmother Tharp in Lewis Co., Tenn, where they all came from. Now, I see that you have your ancestor: Catherine Beatty Turnbow, located in my Turnbow Family Cem, just outside Hohenwald, TN, where all of our Turnbow family in Haskell, originally migrated from (leaving TN for Haskell county in 1924). Catherine, the wife of Joseph Septer Turnbow, was indeed buried here, and ALL Turnbows buried in this cemetery are direct descendants of my great-great-great grandfather George Turnbow, Sr., who first settled the land this cem sits on, as well as the surrounding countryside/hills surrounding it. He settled this land from a land grant he obtained from TN Gov Trousdale in 1810. I still have cousins owning this cemetery and much of its surrounding property. My sis & I flew out there for a family reunion in '94, and dad & I flew out the following year for the next reunion. Mom & dad both went out there to visit these same cousins in the 1960s. My grandmother still owned the original Turnbow homestead from his ancestor George Sr, as late as late 1960s, on Trace Creek, very near this cem, as well as grandpa's hunting place. My great grandpa is also buried in this cem: Pa Dillahunt Turnbow, who was the youngest son of "our" George Turnbow, Jr, who's Confederate gravestone is also placed there (which i was lucky enough to get out U.S.Rep Stenholm to help us finally get the stone there - i had been his congressional intern in D.C, in 1987, very grateful). It is a very beautiful cemetery, next to Trace Creek, with huge, old, trees giving it plenty of shade. George Sr himself is also buried there, but even our Tennessee cousins who still live there, have lost track of the exact spot, but all have always said he IS buried there, and his wife Margaret. George Jrs, wife was Nancy Scott. So now YOU & I are indeed, apparently Double cousins, through the Tharps And the Turnbows, since your ancestor is buried in my ancestors family owned cemetery. "Our" ancestor i should say, was George T-bow Sr.
His father was John Turnbow, born in 1739 in Alsace-Lorraine, France. Now I'm just curious as to likely "only one" generation now, between your Joseph Septer Ts father Joseph Louis Turnbow, and my George Turnbow, Sr. This is the one generational name I am missing, i wish I knew who Joseph Lewis Turnbow's father was. If you hit "other Turnbows in this cemetery, you can see George Turnbow, Jrs, very nice Confederate gravestone! His sons Dillahunt & Eason are buried there, and some of my grandfather Jeff's sisters, just before most of the rest of our family moved to Haskell county. Small world. I thought you might enjoy this information. Best wishes to you and your family. cousin - Steve Turnbow

Bryant Graves Aspinwall Cem
Hi Johnny

I'm going through my ancestry and making sure they are in Find-A-Grave and was AMAZED to see you documented the Bryant graves at Aspinwall Cemetery, Putnam, CT.

I photographed the same ancestors graves there at about the same year you did. Thanks for making the additions at Aspinwall!

I am trying to find out if you have any info about Benton Tidwell, born 12 Aug 1843, Perry County, Tenn and died 25 Dec 1906 in Haskell County, Texas. Supposedly he died Christmas Day while visiting family in Haskell, Texas. And some say he had moved there and died there. I do not know which is correct, but I have looked everywhere for where he is buried, I was wondering if you have any info about him and/or have you come across where he is buried? I appreciate any help and your time.
