Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a retiree, I'm finding lots of time on my hands, and genealogy is filling the void to the point of near obsession. I love digging for records, walking through cemeteries, checking dates and names, and wondering who these lost souls may belong to.It is always rewarding and very exciting to find the answer to a mystery in the family, and the feeling of belonging grows with each find. I look forward to finding answers to my questions and hope that through those answers I might be able to help someone else that might be looking in that same direction. Also, if I've inadvertently added incorrect information on this site, please let me know.

Effie E Tompkins # 23939952
You have added a group photo taken at a cemetery. I was wonder if you know who the people are and or, would one of them be Sarah Lee Tompkins, Delk, Brooks?
Is this the interment of Effie's "Brooks" husband in 1951? I was working on James Logan Delk, Sarah Tompkins first husband and would love to see a photo of Sarah. I have no idea what the woman looked like.
Thanks for any time you ca afford me on this.

You are so welcome. Her memorial was in the wrong cemetery. The little Sells cemetery where she is buried is on the Fentress/Overton County line at the top of the mountain where the road ends. Beautiful little cemetery! I'm descended from Sells as well!

Casey Cemetery
I have to tell you how I was able to get this photo. Our DAR chapter went to the cemetery yesterday with the local cemetery committee. While they mapped the grounds we did our best to locate and clean the graves. Only two stones are still standing (one is unmarked) and another is propped up with a stick. We did our best but at the end of the day we were unable to locate Sarah's and Virginia's stones, which we new had been identified not long ago. As Elizabeth is my fifth great grandmother, I had a special interest in finding and preserving these sites. So as we gathered around the surveying stand listening to the mapper explain his map, I stepped back slightly and wobbled on my feet. I looked down, thinking I had been standingg on a stump. But a closer look showed I had Been standing on Sarah's stone!! I cleared the brush and voila...there she was! It was the perfect end to a great day.

RE: Gerrit Jan Lenters
Hi Theresa,

I'm happy to help. I also added photos for Geesje Lenters, who I assume was Gerrit's wife. It was a multi-day process, as both markers were overgrown with moss, weeds etc. I cleaned up the monuments and the lot, and let the sunshine do the rest. Even though the inscription is faded I think you can read the information.
