Sheryl Smith
Thornton Cemetery-Giles, TN
My name is Sheryl Blankenship Smith I would like to know the location of the Thornton Cemetery which you so kindly listed in Giles County. You stated that although there were markers in 1980 now or at the time you listed your site there were none left. I would greatly appreciate knowing the site as I am a Giles Co., Thornton ancestor and have Great Great Grandparents that should be buried there. Most should be in the Elkton area possibly some in the BeeSpring Cemetery area. Would love to hear from you Thank you for your help in advance,

RE: Thank you
You are welcome. I have found many of the families of my wife and me by using this site. To me, family is what life is about. Where would we be without family. I enjoy going to cemeteries to take photos and then put them on this site so people cand find family. Have a great life.

Hello David,

I am one of Peter's great-great grandchildren through his son, Simon Frank, and his son, Alvie Frank. Thank you for posting a picture of our great-great grandfather and great great grandmother. I always wanted to see a picture of them. Nice to meet you.

John Huntington
I walked the Bigler Cemetery this weekend and didn't see any evidence for J. Huntington. The cemetery is small, set on a hill in an area that once was rural, but today is the setting for large, upscale homes. The grass was high, and many stones have fallen, becoming lost under decades of sediment. so it's possible that J. Huntington is there, waiting to be discovered. Wish I had better news for you.

RE: Hopkins Eastland Cemetery
Hello David,
I am going to try to find the Hopkins Eastland cemetery today to visit my family's graves. I think I found the cemtery on the map from your directions. From what I understand it is on the little farm lane named Shamrock Lane right behind the shed behind the brick house. Thank you once again for the information. Jack Eslick

Hopkins Eastland Cemetery
I noticed you had recently visited the Hopkins Eastland Cemetery and made photos of some of the stones. I have Eastland and Eslick family buried there and have tried to visit but I have not been able to find the cemetery in the past. Could you tell me where it is located? Thank you very much, Jack Eslick
