Find AL Graves 2
Western State Hospital, Bolivar, TN
I want to thank you for posting an example of a typical headstone for burials in the Western State Hospital grounds cemetery. I have a relative that resided there as a patient for many years and, after dying there from tuberculosis, was buried there in 1910. I'm having difficulty in obtaining permission to visit the cemetery or getting information. The hospital is very "hush hush" in supplying information, even from so many years ago. I want to pay my respects and leave flowers. Did you have difficulty in obtaining the example headstone photo you posted?

Their suggestion:
Her stone says she was born in 1909. Could it be wrong?

Hello William,
Because her obituary states she was 83 it would/should be concluded that her birth did occur in 1909. I have now corrected that and I thank you for your help.

I really appreciate you taking those pictures for me. I've been working on my husband's family tree for the past couple of days & these pics will add a lot to their page in the tree.

I'm so thankful for people, like you, who take the time to take pictures of headstones for complete strangers.

Thank you again,

Hiram G Cootes #104841317
I noticed you created a memorial for Hiram Cootes buried in Pope Co. Where did you get the name for the cemetery you have him listed in? Are you a relative?

My husband grew up very close to that area and found Hiram's grave in the 1950's. As long as he can remember, it's been called Pleasant Valley Cemetery. I had already created Hiram in that cemetery.

Thank you for posting a photo of his headstone. His death certificate lists his birth date as shown, even though it conflicts with the headstone, and I'm not sure which is correct. I made a note on the memorial.

Pirtle Graves
Dear William,
Thank you so much for all of the Pirtle headstones that you posted: Narcissa, Belle, Nora, Martha Jane, Louis and C. Pirtle. I really appreciate the work that you did in finding and posting them. I agree with you that the C. Pirtle grave looks like a "ue" on the end and with some of these old fashioned names its hard to guess what it might be. I am still researching this family so maybe someone will fit into the puzzle. Thanks!
