Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am currently the caretaker of Shady Grove Cemetery in Hardin County (near Saltillo) and a member of the Board of Directors of the Shady Grove Cemetery Association whose purpose is to accept and manage donations to take care of the cemetery by way of mowing, cleaning and various improvements as we are able to afford them. Being the third generation of my family who have been "caretakers" for Shady Grove, I take the responsibility seriously and learn anything I can about the people buried here. Always looking for graves of people known to be buried here, but have only a field stone marker or no marker at all. I have the most extensive records that I am aware of on the cemetery, but always researching for more through networking with other researchers and descendants.

Curtis & Lois Kennedy GANT
I just wanted to thank you for the lovely pictures that you posted on Curtis W. Gant's memorial page. I "borrowed" them for my family tree. Lois Kennedy Gant is my 2nd cousin 2x removed via my Barnes-Morris-Kennedy line.

Also, I really appreciate ALL that you do. I think that it is just awesome that you are 3rd generation to take care of Shady Grove Cemetery. It's people like you that help to preserve our cemeteries & our heritage.

Thanks again.

Hi Roger.....I manage this memorial and I realized that you took the picture of the Sardis Cemetery entrance so I wondered if you might happen to have a picture of the headstone for my great grand uncle, Dr. Alexander Blair Hanna #52843515. I would appreciate it very much if you do have one available if you would post it to his memorial. Thank You.....Jacque #480565828

Good Evening Roger,

Aren't we a pair ... it must be 4 a.m. there in Tennessee.

Thank You very much for the pictures of the Shannon monument.

My wife's family includes Holland, Davy, Bell, Harwell and Shannon. May I inquire in the future?

All our best to you,

Kurt and Juanice
