Cemetery preservation is very important to me and I try to list from actual cemetery visits and various book listings. I have been working with Wayne Austin for the last 10 years as a volunteer contributor for his project.
Please, e-mail me with any corrections or additional information that needs to be posted at any Maury County Cemetery where you see my name via the edit option on the memorial.

If I have posted a close relative of yours let me know and I will transfer. Please use the edit option on the memorial for updates, corrections and questions, my responce will be much faster, I don't have to look up the memorial by name that way.

RE: 11315697 Ophelia Clarissa Polk Hayes
I believe Ophelia's death date to be April 18, 1851....(due to complications of child birth
of Charles).
I believe the date of birth of the son, Charles,
is in error...I believe it should be April 5, 1851. The mistake on his headstone could have
been wrong information given by a distraught
father or a gross error by the stone cutter.

Ophelia Clarissa POLK
There must be an error in the date of her death or the date of birth of her child.

Ophelia Clarissa POLK, wife of Dr. John B. HAYES, died 18 April 1854 in Columbia, Maury County, TN

Charles Campbell HAYES, son of Ophelia and John, was born on 5 August 1854.

Could someone verify these dates. It could be that Ophelia died in August 1854 and not April 1854!

Thank you for your help.

Ms McLain,

I came across some interesting info regarding Alexander Duvall Cooper regarding his son A D Cooper Jr. According to the memorial, the Jr died in 1862. However, I find him listed as Alexander D McBride in 1870 and Alexander Cooper in 1880. Both times he was living with his mom (Mary E Johnston Cooper McBride). I still haven't found what happened to him yet. Just thought you might like to know.

James K Pollock
My husband is descended from James K. Pollock. I see that he is the oldest person buried in the Pollock Cemetery. My research indicates that he was born in North Carolina. Do you have any information about his birthplace or parents?
Thank you

RE: Lankford & Cooper
Mary Bob, yes but, is Catharine Melvina (Melvira) Cooper their daughter? She was the wife of Moses Lankford. A couple of trees on "family search" say she was their daughter. And if so, then she is my 3rd ggrandmother. And, I think I found where she & Moses are buried, but I have no solid proof of this as of yet. Look for Lankford Cem.,Dickson Co.,TN. Thanks, Tim

Lankford & Cooper
Mary Bob, my 2nd great-grandparents were Joseph A. Parker b.1824,Dickson Co.,TN-d.about 1882 & Jemima Lankford b.1828-d.1860,Dickson Co.,TN. Her parents (my 3rdgreat) were Moses Lankford b.about 1802 NC-d.1863 Dickson Co.,TN & Catharine Melvina (or Melvira) Cooper b.Aug.1809 SC-d.about 1904 Dickson Co.,TN. Her parents were Hugh Cooper b.1771 Chester Co.,SC-d.between 1861-1865 Mississippi & Catharine Brakefield. Hugh's parents were Capt.Robert Cooper & Jane Hamilton. All that came from the website "family search". I saw that you also came from Robert's line. I believe that Joseph A. & Jemima are buried at a Lankford Cem.,Dickson Co.,TN that I added to findagrave. Am I right about Catharine being the daughter of Hugh Cooper? Thanks, Tim

Malcolm Gilchrist
Hello Mary Bob McClain,

Yahoo!! There is a new grave marker for Malcolm and Catharine Gilchrist in the John Hunter Cemetery. Many thanks to Marva Hudspeth and Jerry Kennedy at the Mt. Pleasant Museum for their invaluable assistance. Also, it was Ephraim McClain who was able to tell me there was a new grave marker, and exactly where it was.

And, of course, thanks to the other descendants who are presumably from Courtland, Alabama for providing the very beautiful new grave marker!
