Gerald, thank you for transferring my great granddaddy to me. I appreciate the work you did on adding and maintaining his memorial. You do a great service for those of us who live a distance from our loved ones burial site. May God bless you and keep you safe and in good health.

James B. Wheeler + Martha Jane Floyd
fyi: As part of researching all Brown records in Bedford County TN, I have discovered that James B. Wheeler (95163574) + Martha Jane Floyd (95164272) were each married twice - this was their second marriage.

The death record for Parmelia Edaline Wheeler lists her parents as Jim B. Wheeler + Maggie Brown (don't know which Brown she is, but her mother's name might have been Parmelia - James B. Wheeler's mother was Edaline White).

I have located the 1873 marriage record for J. B. Wheeler + M. M. Brown. The marital status for James B. Wheeler in the 1880 census is widowed. He married M. J. Osteen in 1893, where Martha Jane Floyd had married John W. Osteen in 1876.

All 3 marriages occurred in Bedford County TN.

Mary Wilkes Muse Findagrave #79681710
I have submitted an edit to change Mary's maiden name to Chapman. She was md (1) to Joseph A. Wilkes, who died around 1868/1869. I have not yet found where he is buried, so cannot link her to him.
In 1874 Mary (Chapman) Wilkes md (2) John William Muse and had children with him. They are shown on the 1880 census, with her Wilkes children from the first marriage living in the household.
As I can find the burials of the other family members on findagrave, I will link them.
Thank you for all your hard work on making these family records available!

Josiah Eley & Davis Cemetery
Almost everyone Buried in Davis Cemetery, Marshall County, TN is related to Amos Davis. Josiah seems to be an exception. Do you know of any relationship between Josiah and Amos or any other reason why he was buried there.

Thanks you your help. I am making a linting of the persons buried in the cemetery and their relationship with Amos
