Bio and Links
Bio Photo At the young age of 32, I have quickly become a very experienced genealogist. I absolutely love findagrave. In my opinion, findagrave is in the top 3 most important genealogy websites on the internet. I love traveling to visit cemeteries, and am willing to help anyone who asks. Some of my direct ancestors include: William Horace Hobson (1817-1867) of Fayette Co. TN, Rev. Robert Venable Taylor (1822-1919) of Fayette Co. TN, J.D.C. Stark (1819-1895) of Greene Co. OH, Samuel A. McDermott (1841-1897) of Knoxville TN, James White (1747-1821) founder of Knoxville TN, Woodard Bardin (1800-1867) of Wayne Co. NC, Daniel Alexander (1800-1852) of Russell Co. VA, Benjamin Dawson (1785-1850) of Kershaw Co. SC, William Hardy Hill (1821-1867) of Neshoba Co. MS, Eli Monroe Martin (1821-1874) of Hinds Co. MS, James Monroe Ayers (1852-1915) of Lafayette Co. MS, Capt. James Waldrop (1734-1799) of Newberry SC, Edward Hughes of Charleston SC, Gen. Joseph Hutton of Abbeville SC, Moses Peden (1787-1855) of Kemper Co. MS, John Thorne (1828-c1880) of Smith Co. MS, Joseph Posey (1805-1898) of Smith Co. MS.

While I was not able to provide you with a headstone picture as requested, I was able to locate a death certificate. I hope this helps in your search.

Memorial Park Cemetery where the burial is supposed to be is an extremely large cemetery (41,000+ interments). Staff at the cemetery will only provide grave locations to family members. Please contact the office to obtain plot information and add it to the memorial page and/or your photo request, so the volunteer photographer can find the grave marker for you. The office can be reached at 901-767-8930 or 888-943-7275. Ask for Paul Campbell. Once you obtain this information, please resubmit your photo request.

Price, Hughes
Bobby Hobson, I noticed where on Aug 31, 2014, you made a request for a photo of headstone in Calvary Cemetery, Falls Co, Texas, of D. M. Price born 1822, died June 4, 1887. Also noticed in your bio for Findagrave that you indicated an ancestor Edward Hughes of Charleston, SC. I believe I am a descendant of this Edward Hughes.

James Fisher Hughes (1798-1853), had a daughter Louisa M. Hughes (1828 - ? ) who married Daniel M. Price, ad Daniel is believed to be buried in Calvary Cemetery, Falls Co, TX. I have a pretty good file on the James Fisher Hughes family.

I would love to hear from you about your findings on the Hughes Family. M. Perry, member #47148892, e-mail perrymb@lipan.net

Ruth E Peden Smith
Bobby,

I am trying to find roots for Robert Smith, Ruth's purported husband. I know that in the 1860 census he lived next to the Pedens with two small children. Ruth does not appear in either Givens' or Smith's census entry. Does Ruth's headstone say Smith or is she just buried in the Peden plot? Mystery!! Ruth is my gg great grandmother.

By the way, I'm located in Greenville, SC, and could track down any Pedens around here.

Best,

Jim Sturges

TRANSFER MEMORIAL
Bobby,
Could you please transfer memorial # 93789253
for Garlend Bowen. His daughter is our mother's stepsister and she has requested information about her father. She is the only living relative left on our mother's side and is 80 years old and is looking for any family because her parents divorced when she was young. She knows he had remarried and had one son.
I thank you for your time.
Joyce

Lillian Thigpen
Hi Bobbie,
Do you have information or a photo on Lillian Thigpen's grave? Find A Grave Memorial# 86695305. Specifically her date of death and husband. She is linked to Estelle Frank Thigpen as his spouse. My information show her sister, Lavica (Sherriff) Betschart, was married to Estelle Thigpen. I have the marriage license. They were married January 1950 and Lillian (Sherriff) Nowochin, Lavica's sister, was one of the witnesses. Yet this memorial says Lillian died in 1949. I am thoroughly confused at to who Lillian Thigpen is.
Thank you for your help.
