Not too much to tell - I'm an amateur genealogy researcher and don't care to help out others with their research if I can. I'm retired and have some time available to do this. I believe that all burial grounds are sacred, and that each and every grave means something to someone.

I work mostly the western section of Washington County, TN.

My F-A-G work is somewhat limited. It goes in spurts. I enjoy trying to help folks out. It seems hard to get errors fixed, however. I continue to work locally and, if asked, I try to assist researchers. I work more on graveyard documentation, restoration, and preservation. I appreciate those of you who sent thank you messages, I truly do - you account for about 10 percent of the requests that I process. To the others, please think about your volunteers - they research the locations of the markers, often hike to family cemeteries thru brush and briars, we spend hours and dollars fulfilling requests - It is work and we take it seriously.

Thank you also...
for Photo of Mary Britt's grave. I appreciate the time and energy you put into finding this for me. My father was born in Chattanooga, there are
many family members around the area I see listed on Find A Grave but can't actually find in cemetery records. Do you have any good, secret cemetery sources down there, or are you just really good at legwork?! Thanks so much for your help!

Thanks so much for finding and photographing Isaac Britt. Thanks especially for making extra effort to find an unmarked grave! Are these records available thru the cemetery? I don't know much about this family, and would like to dig around a bit. Isaac was my g.g. Grandfather.

Thanks so much! Jen Cannon

Hi Gordon,

Would it have been in "bad taste" to have added Anna as a wife to William?

Just wondering?

Do you have any information about Anna and her marriage to William? Where did they live etc.

I sent you my email, you could correspond with me
by email if you would like.

Thank you,

Thanks for those photos of the stones for the three CW soldiers in Gray Community cemetery. Your help with the "proof of burial" photos for the CW soldiers has made a huge difference.

Jesse Hurt grave (Hurdt)
I was so thrilled to find the info you posted on my GGgrandfather, Jesse C Hurt. (some of his children spelled it with the "d", some didn't. My line didn't). I wonder where you were able to document his wife's name as Johnston. I found a marriage license for them in Burke County with Johnston, but on their youngest daughter's death certificate in California (Mary, known as Mollie), her mother's maiden name is listed as Oday or O'Day. So I am looking for additional documentation on the Johnston surname. Also, I have no clue as to who her father was. So any additional info you might have would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for the help. I wonder how you got those records. I ordered what was supposed to be all of his military records about 20 years ago, and didn't get that one for the marker with the death date.

Thank you Gordon for the help with the CSA soldiers. There will probably be several more over the next couple of weeks.

During some research today I came across some D.C. for some more people in the cemetery so I added them. Might want to take a look when you get time.
