I was born and raised in the Windle community of Overton Co. in Tennessee. When I joined this site, I thought I would have lots of time to go to cemeteries and take photos. Now I'm babysitting my little grandsons, so I'm enjoying them for now. I'm looking for England, Ward, Matthews, Pryor, Wilson, Norris, Masters, Poston, and Copeland headstones. My goal is to document the local cemeteries, although at my pace, this may take some time. I'll do my best if someone needs anything in the Windle area.
Poplar Springs Barnes Cemetery Hi Gail, Willie and William Mack Barnes are my grandparents. I never knew it but according to the information below from Find A Grave Lewis Hickman Barnes is my grandfather's father. I'm curious how the connection with the headstone for L.H. Barnes was made with Lewis Hickman Barnes; would you know? Also as to how all his children's names are arrived at. The Two that I am aware of are missing... Another mystery concerning Lewis is where his wife was buried... One son, Bartholomew, has the same birth year as William Mack according to other records I've found so somewhere there's a mistake in dates or another mother... Don't know what s/ nor h/ are for. I'd appreciate any insight into these matters. Thank you.
