Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of California and moved to East Tennessee in 1997 after I retired. My paternal family line goes back in this area before their was a Tennessee. I am pictured here standing at the grave of my 5th great-grandfather Johann Sebastian Graff, aka John Graves. I have been doing family research for many years. I am a member of both the Union County Historical Society and the Union County Cemeteries Association. At the present time several members of the UCCA are working towards having available through our website, links to all of the information with pictures of the headstones of all those who are buried in Union County and some of the nearby surounding counties. This is an very active ongoing project. Please feel free to email us with pictures, obituaries and any personal information on individuals buried in Union County and we will endevor to have it added to their memorials.

Same death date for two husbands?
Hello. First let me thank you for the work you have done. I really appreciate your efforts. However, the Sallings Cemetery memorials for James Sallings (43790179) & Isaac Bayless (43789501), both husbands of Ann McPhetridge Sallings Bayless, are recorded as having died on the same day. Ann & Isaac married 25 May 1865 which means he could not have died 7 Jul 1862 as indicated by the memorial. Sallings Cemetery is in Maynardville, Union County, Tennessee. Ann is also buried in Sallings Cemetery.
Thanks again,
Charline McPhetridge Rambaud

RE: Joseph Arley Sallings
The problem is that there are two memorials for the same person: 51670104/51864010. I have contacted Nancy Murray about this issue. If you check the memorials, you will see that the one I originally posted a photo to has a grave marker spelling the surname "Salling." Records I have researched varied between Salling and Sallings, but with the grave marker reading Salling, I have used that spelling in my family tree. This is my dilemma. So I suggest that you and Nancy Murray decide what to do, as I was only trying to offer relatives great photos, not to debate spelling variations which I have discovered no way so far to resolve.

Yours in family hunting,

Tindell Cemetery
Just letting you know that I'm entering the names at the Tindell Cemetery in Union County. It's becoming a bit overgrown and I plan on going in within the month to cut the brush and small trees that have started growing.

RE: Hale & Shermer Families
Thanks for the information. Do you know why these three children were adopted by the Hale family? I know that the Shermers had quite a few children from what info I have been able to find.

RE: Eli Graves
I looked for a cross reference for Eli Graves, brother of Solomon Graves. # 51 ( top of the page )

http://www.gravesfa.org/gen105.htm

The Eli Graves I am referring to is ref # 514
(Middle of the page and bottom of the page)

I found them on Root's web as well as this site ( Find A Grave).
Very interesting stuff. I had no idea of the German ancestry. Thanks for your help! :)
