Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Middle Tennessean happy to keep an eye out for relatives of others while pursuing my favorite hobby, searching for interesting grave shelters in small, rural cemeteries. Gravehouses, shelters, tents, rock tombs and cairns--they're all vanishing quickly, so will take them where I can find them, and appreciate your suggestions. The motherlode of rock tents/combs, the Cumberland Plateau, is my favorite stomping ground.

Thanks to all of you who have added photos to my memorials! I'm willing to fill photo requests in out-of-the-way places, as long as you're not in a hurry. If corrections are needed to memorials I've added, or if you would like additional information, please leave a message here or send email to my address.

You are welcome to use my photos for non-commercial purposes without obtaining my prior permission, as long as their use is within the rules and guidelines of, and provided the ownership source is clearly stated each time.

I am not directly related to many people for whom I've created memorials, so please feel free to ask for a transfer. If I've made a mistake on a memorial, and you can shed light on the subject, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Am always on the lookout for Berry (Hulme, Wiltshire, Vowell, Malone, Jefferson), Carothers (Turner, Potts, Nevins, Jordan, Whitsitt), Wilkerson (King, Barnes, Dowdy, Goodwin, Buchanan) and Rucker (all of the above, and everyone else in TN, KY, and VA).

It's a delight to be part of the awesome assembly that is Find A Grave!

Hi Harriet,

Thank you so much for the photo of the subject individual. It has already been added to our tree.

Have you seen/photographed the two stone grave houses at the Edwards cemetery close to Slayden, TN? The cemetery is entered on F-a-G as Edwards #4. There are photos that show part of Elizabeth and Polly Edwards graves.

There is also a grave house in a small Patterson Cemetery, (Patterson Cemetery #2, New Hope, Cheatham Co., TN on F-a-G). Look for Sarah A Patterson, you can see part of the wood grave house behind her headstone. If you have never been there it is hard to find. No sign to mark it, high on a hill out of sight from the road as you head to Southside from New Hope. Can give directions if you want.

Are you any relation to Miss Berry who taught us math at East High in Nashville? I know she is from the northern part of Dickson Co. Our Mom is from the Northeast corner, a little place called Hamble, TN. If you are related to her tell her you heard from one of the "Vaughn Boys." She'll know who you are talking about.

You can reach us directly at: or 615-828-3725.

RE: Wilson Co cemeteries
Send the locations, I'll drive by and see what is before me, and proceed from there. And don't forget hornets and skunks.

I see that you added a photo of William Lanius' headstone #103470624, but the record doesn't list where the cemetery is. Do you know? Thanks!

I think the pictures I had the graves still had most of the covers on them. I think I took the pictures between 1996 and 1999 when I visited Smithville on my way to Virginia.

Thank you for the pictures of William Holmes Baker and Lucinda Erwin Baker's headstones in Bright Hill Cemetery, Smithville, TN.
I use to have pictures, but they some how have been misplaced.
