Bio and Links
Prompted by my father to personally find all family cemeteries in the Monroe Co., TN, area, I learned how addictive "walking on the ground your ancestors walked on" is! An awakening was finding the horrific conditions some cemeteries are in, including those managed by TVA. Finding the Find-a-Grave website will enable me to more readily show the world what can happen when no one cares. I am a UT graduate with 3 grown children. Recently, I became aware of 3 African American Cemeteries in Lonsdale - the middle of the city of Knoxville, TN. Research done by Robert McGinnis proved it to encompass 24 acres, most of which became a dumping ground, was overgrown, and was a location for unspeakable criminal activity. Sheriff J. J. Jones has undertaken the clearing of the worst - Southern Chain and Longview. I am attempting to capture every stone possible and preserve the memories of these special people before they again become victims and disappear. Some photos are very bad, and I apologize. Due to the terrain conditions, I was very limited. My research priorities are Moser, Nichols, Nuchols, Davis, Cook, Clemens, Hurst, and the families involved in the Howard-McGhee-Jones Feud in TN.

RE: Minnie Jane Nichols
I appreciate the offer. You are doing a wonderful job. I work all the time and don't have much time to spare. You didn't answer about being related to my Nichols line, are you? Linda

Dear Mr. Nichols,
Thank you so much for your work preserving and exploring ancestry and graves. It's your work that helped us find more about my grandaddy, Earl Samuel Fields, whose mother was Prudie Moser. We have some photos of Earl and his sister, Irene and would happily share them with you. We don't have any of Herbert or Fred.
Also, my mom learned about Earl's son by happenstance, when she was an adult. She had NEVER known about him. We are eager to learn more. She knows nothing about him except that apparently his name was Earl also.

RE: Margaret E. Sparks Stephenson
Tommie, thank you for your message. I have tried using the direct edit feature; and, I have had horrible results. I have seen dozens of requests, and received less than ten responses most of which are on pages where the contributor is now inactive. Like you, I received a denial because my request "would change the information on the page." Well, duh, if the information had been correct, I wouldn't have sent the request. I appreciate your help!
