RE: Dempsey's tombstone
Thank you for responding to my e-mail. I don't see my self in Georgia any time in the future. He's probably buried on private property and his gravesite will rest in peace. Does that land still belong to the Tyner's or to someone else now? Maybe the landowners would know where the gravesite or cemetery is.

Thank you for your time and good luck on your gravestone hunting.

Dempsey's tombstone
Dempsey's tombstone is relatively new. Do you by chance know when the tombstone was replaced? You said the land surrounding the cemetery is Jackson Tyner's land. Is that Rueben Jackson or another Jackson's land?

How are you connected to Dempsey?

RE: Dempsey Tyner
He is my 6th great grandfather. My line is Dempsey/ Rueben Jackson/Nathan/Lewis C/ James F/ James F Jr/ James/ Janet/ me. Nathan and his family were in the forced relocation to Oklahoma. Lewis C was born in Tahlequah. I am assuming you know the Trail of Tears story. If not, you can research it. The last full blood Cherokee in my family was James F. He married a full blood Shawnee named Onata Charley. Their son, James F Jr married a white woman and each generation after that married a non Indian. I'm a 16th Cherokee and 16th Shawnee.

Dempsey Tyner
Thank you so much for sending me the photo of Dempsey's grave! The location of his grave on is in Tyner Station, outside of Chattanooga, TN. I was in Nashville a couple of years ago and decided to take a day trip with my kids to find the cemetery. Ironically, the cemetery was named Tyner Cemetery but there were no Tyners buried there.

Thank you,

Susan Glapion

RE: Thomas Eugene Norton
ok great. I am Joanne, not Joanna. I see that you have my dad listed as William Kyle Sanders. I never knew him as that because he changed his name to Jack Sanders. His son, my brother, is William Kyle Sanders and is still living. This is really exciting for me to find my grandfather Thomas Norton. Still wishing for a photo of him ...Thank you again.

Thomas Eugene Norton
I am trying to determine if this is my grandfather. If so, he was married briefly 1922 to my grandmother, Sara Black. I am the daughter of Sara's child, Gaynel Norton. Any information you have is most appreciated. Joanne Elaine (Sanders) Burns.

I visited Crestlawn today and while I did locate the grave of Anne's father (which has a photo already), there were no other markers around it. Sorry I had better news.
