Bio and Links
Not too much to tell - I'm an amateur genealogy researcher and don't care to help out others with their research if I can. I'm retired and have some time available to do this. I believe that all burial grounds are sacred, and that each and every grave means something to someone.

I work mostly Washington County, TN and a bit of Unicoi County, TN. I am a member of the Cemetery Survey Team of Northeast Tennessee and serve as the graveyard representative for the Heritage Alliance.

My F-A-G work is somewhat limited. It goes in spurts. I enjoy trying to help folks out. It seems hard to get errors fixed, however. I continue to work locally and, if asked, I try to assist researchers. I work more on graveyard documentation, restoration, and preservation. I appreciate those of you who sent thank you messages, I truly do - you account for about 10 percent of the requests that I process. To the others, please think about your volunteers - they research the locations of the markers, often hike to family cemeteries thru brush and briars, we spend hours and dollars fulfilling requests - It is work and we take it seriously.

RE: Mose Tipton in Erwin
Thank you so much Gordon!! I'm a Tipton descendant and hope to get up that way to do some genealogical digging myself, I have found some articles on Moses being fined for moonshine, etc! Ha! :)

Corp Clarence C Stockton
Do you remember which cemetery he is buried in, Stockton or Roseville, the same pics are on both memorials? Find A Grave Memorial# 128386850 and Find A Grave Memorial# 90630291

Corp Clarence C Stockton
Hey Gordon, hope you are doing well. I got an edit for the above Stockton saying that I made a dup. memorial. I have him in Stockton Cemetery,Flag Pond,
Unicoi County and I see that you have added pics. His other memorial is in Roseville Cemetery,Flag Pond, Unicoi County and the same pics have been added to that memorial. Are these two cemeteries the same one or different ones? I got his burial info from his death certificate and it says Stockton so I added him to that cemetery.

Gordon: Thank you for your time, I appreciate you trying to locate the burial place. I did not realize that the grave info came from a Bible. Thanks again for trying!

Britt cemeteries in Unicoi County
Gordon, I see that you posted photographs of the Britt and Britt-Grindstaff cemeteries in Unicoi County, TN. I believe that some of my ancestors are interred at Britt-Grindstaff, but I have never been able to find it. I will be in east TN next week and want to try again. Can you provide directions (or GPS coordinates) to both of those cemeteries? The cemetery of interest to me is along Scioto Rd in the same area as the Brummett Cemetery.

RE: Joseph Ray
Gordon, this cemetery is on private land and has not been cleaned in years. I hope to in a couple of weeks go and clean it. It is on Devils Fork Road back on top of a mountain. Hopefully you will wait a while until I get it cleaned off.

Ada Lucas, Swingle Cem. Unicoi Co
Gordon, I appreciate you looking for Ada's burial.
There may not be a burial record any place except the death record. The fact you did not find her elsewhere is a help.
The reason I asked is that a church historian is writing a bio of her father, Rev. James W. Lucas, and he has written me asking some questions about him as I post quite a lot of minister's burials I find in old records. I tried to locate the graves of all the Lucas children; I sent the link for the last one (Zora) on July 1st. Thanks, for all you do for others on this site and elsewhere.
