Bio Photo "When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

I've been working on genealogy for about 10 years now. I stumbled upon this site and so impressed with the idea that I decided to volunteer and add graves as I ran across them. It saddens me to see the state of some of the graveyards I've visited, but I feel like I'm helping save part of history by photographing the stones that are still there. If I can be of any help just let me know.

"Genealogy is the art of collecting tidbits of the lives of those who came before us. And a genealogist sorts, organizes and nurtures this info for the purpose of paying it forward to a future generation's hands. The bucket is in our hands now, for a moment it's "ours", but the rest of the brigade is waiting for that pail of water to be passed to the next soul." Gerblady

if you would like a transfer of a memorial, please use the "edit" button on the memorial and state your relationship. I will gladly transfer memorials within 4 direct generations. Others I will be happy to consider. :-)

I used the cemetery list at the court house 1885 for the older names in the cemetery.

I did not find a headstone in Little BLue River Baptist Cemetery, but her name was in two listings for this cemetery.
She was not listed in the 1885 reading the the Friends cemetery.
As which is correct, I DO NOT KNOW, I am only able to rely on the oldest reading of the cemetery.

RE: Benoit
Yes, they are on the same marker, front and back. She was his second wife. I always post photos of both sides of a marker on a memorial page (if there is anything engraved on the backside). I'm glad to have been of help.

RE: Bettie Foutch
I have to agree with you, she is not the mother.
I checked the cemetery where she was buried and
I found a baby girl named Bettie who was born on the same day that the mother died. She only
lived 2 weeks.

I believe that you are correct that Bettie aka
Florence aka Flora is the same person.

I tried to get the web site that you mentioned
but was not successful. Probally, I would have to be a member of Ancestry.

RE: Bettie Foutch
Hello Shmily,
Could you make sense of my last comment?
In a nutshell:
Flora would have been 16 yrs. old when Susie
was born.
Flora would have been 19 yrs. old when Edith
was born.
William Scott would have been 13 yrs. old
when Susie was born.
William Scott would have been 16 yrs. old
when Edith was born.
I believe Flora had been previously married.

My computer scrambled everything up after I
typed it. I'm referring to the 1910 census.

Hi Shmily,
The tale of two John's.
John H. Foutch (b) 4 Jul 1856 TN
#97820665 (d) 31 Mar 1928 TN

Betty (Goodwin) (b) 16 Aug 1962 TN
114645555 (d) 4 Aug 1900 TN
John R Foutch (b) 3 Sep 1863 TN
#27748186 (d) 9 Jan 1948 TX

Betty (b) 4 Mar 1864 TN
#27748201 (d) 15 Nov 1962 TX
Death of James Omer Foutch:
(b) 28 Sep 1890 TN
(d) 30 Dec 1947 TX
He was the fourth child.
(Father) John R Foutch
(Mother) Betty (Robertson)

In reference to the 1910 census that you mentioned:
Flora 41 Flora 41
Susie 25 Edith 22
16 19

William 38 William 38
Susie 25 Edith 22
13 16

I think Flora was married to a
man named XXX Goodwin before she married
William Scott. In those days, girls could
be marrie 12 to 15 yrs. old. Husbands were
about 10 yrs. older.
I have not been able to prove any of this.
