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.

Amazing! Thanks for going out to the cemetery once again and looking for her and then finding her! Your sleuthing is much appreciated. I wish I knew the history of the family, what they were like besides when they were born and died. There has to be some fantastic stories behind these relatives of mine. Thank you Gordon! maxine

If you would like to send me any of the information on the private cemetery with the photos, feel free to write me at The owners sound like very kind people and I do so appreciate that they let you come on to the property. Of course I appreciate you asking them if you could also! Much gratitude, Maxine

That's very interesting about Landon's location. And I can't tell you how much I appreciate your efforts in regards to Jefferson. My grandmother was Alice Burelson. She married J.W. McBride and then became a young widow when he was shot at age 26. Thank you for your offer to help in the future too, I will definitely keep that in mind. You've been of great help! Thanks again and I'll be in touch......Maxine!

I've added memorials for :
Monnie Pearson Young
James Vaught
Dora Vaught

Charles Young is probably buried in the Pearson-Horton cem. Its called Buffalo Cem on the death cert.

So far I've got nothing on Carolyn Newman.

I do use very much. If you already have the death certs of everyone buried there on excel that would help me.

RE: Fitzgerald

Fitzgerald doesn't ring a bell. However if you meant Charles Bachman, yes, his first wife was Sarah Ford and his second wife was Zillie Pearson Taylor.
