|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.

Thank you for the photos that you took of the foot markers. I didn't know that a tree had fallen in the cemetery and it is very nice that you will go back to take another photo of the head marker. I appreciate the first visit, but to make another visit, well that's so kind of you!! This is my 4x great aunt. Again, thank you!!! Maxine

Thanks for all the CW soldier grave photos. I had no idea you had so many. I do not have any additional information on James Carter, Memorial #141701834, other than what I found on Find A Grave. I double checked my ETHC resource to see if I coud turn up a request for a gov't stone, but did not find one. As you probably know lots of those records were lost in a fire long ago, so he still could have a VA stone. Sorry I can't tell you anything else.
You could be right. I haven't done any research really about the family.
I'm confused about your pic on Find A Grave Memorial# 100399113. Do you disagree on the name or was this an "oops"?
I don't have GPS coordinates, I didn't take any because my phone is from the stone age and doesn't do all that fancy stuff LOL Good thing that it isn't hard to find. Take the left branch on Martins Creek and yep, drive to the end. There is a gate on the left side of the road.(I posted a pick of it). Hike past the gate till after the road curves to the left and the cemetery is on the left side of the road. You will see 4-wheeler tracks going up the bank to it. I hope that you find some headstones that I missed, good luck.
