Bio and Links
I am currently living in the uk. Why? well I married a brit!
I got involved with genealogy after listening to my grandparents and realizing that they could only tell about their Uncle Ham,Aunt Sis and Uncle Nate... and couldn't tell me anything about the relations after that generation.I love puzzles which is what I compare genealogy to-only alot more backbreaking work;).. I haven't gotten the Baker family as far back as I would like.. only to 1762 and would be content if I could get it back to where whomever stepped off the boat..
I don't mind helping but don't have alot of my records left as I gave them to a distant relative when I got discourage/disgusted a few years ago and they were never returned.. some I recall and some I am slowly getting back.
I place information on the "find a grave" sites when I find no info there or the grave not listed for I find nothing more sad than a grave that has been forgotten.
I am no longer linking any of my graves with stones that are "in memory" for there is no actual proof of burial. This can I believe lead to confusion from some researching and is a trend that I wish had never started.

RE: Thomas Lewis Moon
If you ever find any proof let me know, I would appreciate it. Although there may be no indian blood directly in the line some of the children etc may have married into a mixed line & therefore some of the family could claim it while others can't so it's a definite possibility. I heard as a child the Moons were Indian but I couldn't find any connection.......We are quad triple or related to the Moons thru several different lines of our family..........

RE: relative
I don't like speaking badly of the dead but I knew Elizabeth Carpenter & I have dis proved a lot of what she had said. I wouldn't beleive much of what she said. It's sad that some people will make connections to family that we weren't even related to because they were a well known wealthy line of Carpenters up north. I disproved that theory immediately & am still working trying to find a connection of Willis's family...........

RE: relatives
Willis & Betsy begat 15 known children & each one of them begat bunches & bunches more. The Carpenters were at one time related to just about everyone in Owens Cross Roads & New Hope & Jackson County, Paint Rock area etc. As all these people moved here from other states there are a lot we aren't related to.....
I've heard several say that we have Indian blood but it does not come thru Willis & Betsy. Meshach's 2nd wife Rachel Owens was supposedly half indian, their daughter married George Moon & there is indian blood in that line of Moons. We are double, triple & more related to the Bakers, Moons, Byrds, Elliotts, more than half of the people in that area. The reason I've been working on the Bakers is because of the connection to them thru Willis & Betsy & John Charles Carpenters daughter Nancy married first a Russell & second to John Ellett who was the son of John Fletcher Ellett & Rebecca Baker Ellett.. I've been working on our family & associated families for over 40 years & still finding more. Most of them are known to be buried in the area but no one knows for sure where. I wish I could go back in time & meet them all & get the answers to all those questions.............

RE: Richard(Dick) C Glover Cemetery
Low Gap does end into Cherry Tree but also Old Gurley Pike where Glovers Cove & Honea Cove near Cherry Tree. I will check both places & find it.

RE: Richard(Dick) C Glover Cemetery
BTW! That road is Old Gurley Pike. It runs from Cherry Tree road to New Hope. It is the "trail" that supposedly was cleared by General Andrew Jackson and his 2,500 men during the war of 1812 of which Willis Carpenter & his brother in-law Maston Ross joined "the Tennessee volunteers", specifically during the Creek Indian uprising in that area in 1813. Willis' old homestead is on the corner (practically) of Low Gap Road & Old Gurley Pike. They cleared the land & "squatted" or homesteaded the property They are your relatives too thru Francis, I think!

RE: Richard(Dick) C Glover Cemetery
Yes thank you. There is a Glovers Cove there and a Glovers creek on that land on google It's a shame that a cemetery on private land is not accessible to the public. I know exactly where it is.
At the time they were started they were by families & property transfers & sells. Some people destroy them & plant crops on top of them. People should be more respectful.

The Cave Spring area is where most of our relatives are from, some lived nearer New Hope. Most of it has been sold off as the older generation has passed. Willis & Betsy's old homestead, a small part of the land is still held by family members...

Thank you dear lady, I promise I will get out there one day & try to photograph & post it.

Thanks for you help one the Bakers. I'm sorry I misunderstood your note on the Cemetery. I will go out there & try to find it & photograph it.
Willis & Betsy's old homestead is within 1/4 mile from Old Gurley Pike, on Low Gap Road.

Low Gap dead ends on Cave Spring Road & the property immediately on the west side of Low Gap & Cave Springs Road is where my great grand father Meshach owned property as did my grandfather James Thomas "Jim Shack" Carpenter. The Glovers, Honea's & other family lived in that immediate area.

Someone created a marker for Pearl's grave. I found it a couple of weeks ago and added it to her record in old baptist. Go take a look.

Thank you for the additional information about this child. I could only guess at his parents, but am pleased that I guessed right. I added relationship links for his parents and links for Myrtle's parents. I am blind to information that is not in the census records. Can you tell me anything about the children of Ruby and Margaret? Did Walter and Polly have children other than Margaret?

Thanks for your help. You can answer me at my email address if you like,

Annette Bradford
