I love Find a Grave. It not only is a great way to research our ancestry, but a wonderful way to honor those we love that have gone before us. |
I am researching the Montgomery, Cowley, Ewing, & Rogers (& related families) lines.
If you have a chance, please leave a memorial for my parents, Iwana "Pinkie" Montgomery and Lewie Montgomery (under my sponsorships).

|John Christeson||Hunt Cemetery|
Are you related to the Hunts in this cemetery? I am interested finding out how the cemetery was created and who is the present landowner.

|Karla Calhoun||Maynard & Bonnie Kelly|
I am searching for the family of Bonnie Kelly who lived in B'ham AL on 1930 census and had children Worsham & Imagene. Her brother Alfred Lee Bennett married my grandmother Alma Sloan in B'ham AL in Aug of 1946. The family lost track of what became of them shortly after that and we are searching for her burial place. Thank you for any info you can give me. I am sorry if this is not the same Bonnie Kelly.

Please add to his bio thanks steve
David was the youngest child of Black David Campbell having been born in August 1753 only a few months before the death of his father in November of the same year. Like his brother, he was raised by his uncles, William, Robert and Alexander. In 1774, he married Margaret Campbell, a daughter of White David Campbell, and settled on a small farm in the vicinity of the modern day town of Abingdon. In about 1782, David and Margaret removed to Washington County, North Carolina (now part of Tennessee). On 23 October 1782, David patented 153 acres of land on the east side of the "Mirey" branch of the Big Limestone, near land also patented by Charles Allison in 1782. David was then living in the same area as his brother William, and his uncles, Robert and Alexander.
In 1785, David and his wife moved to what was then Greene County, North Carolina, but is now Knox County, Tennessee. Together with three of David's cousins ("Elder David" Campbell, Alexander Campbell and "Big Jimmie" Campbell), they founded "Campbell's Station" located on Turkey Creek, a few miles southwest of the site of modern-day Knoxville. In 1787, David obtained a patent from the State of North Carolina, for 500 acres of land on Turkey Creek. Colonel Campbell's recollections concerning the early history of the Station are found in the Document 2 of the Personal Letters Section of this web site. An incident concerning Colonel Campbell's wife which took place at the Station during an Indian attack is found in Document 3 of the Personal Letters Section. A map of the Campbell's Station vicinity and recent photographs of the Campbell's Station site have also been appended.
David served in Lord Dunmore's War (1774) and in the Revolutionary War. He served as a private at the Battle of Long Island Flats (July 1776) and at King's Mountain (October 1780). David was made a Captain of the Knox County Militia by Territorial Governor William Blount in 1792. After Tennessee became a state, Governor John Sevier appointed him a 2nd Major in the Tennessee Militia for Knox County ( 04 October 1796). He was appointed Lieutenant Colonel Commandant of the Knox County Militia on 20 December 1800.

It seems odd that I was able to find agrave for Eula Short but not Charlie. But I could not, but I will try again. I was looking for over 20 graves today and it can be a bit confussing at times. In a week or two I'll get back out there and try again to find him. Be patient with me.
I am also related to Mahala Mantooth, from my mother's line.
Contact me, I think I have a photo of her headstone somewhere.

|Terry Real||RE: Sandies Chapel Cemetery|
My Aunt's cousin told me the same thing. The gate across from Dewville Cemetery was not locked when I went. I drove down to where the road is blocked going straight just past a house on the left. There was a gate and a "road" going to the left. I did not want to to drive across someone's property so I parked and walked through the gate. I seem to rememeber the road going up a little hill with a field and barn to the right. There was a fork in the path and the left path took you to the cemetery on the edge of the trees. The grass was very high in the cemetery when I was there but I think that you can see the fence around it from the fork in the path. There was a man cutting grass in the field who came over to check me out. He said there was no problem with going through the gate by the house and driving to the cemetery. He said he would put up a sign showing the way. I have no idea if he did. He also said he would cut the grass in the cemetery. I hope he was careful. Many of the markers are overturned and broken. A couple had some of the lettering damaged by what looked to be a string trimmer.
I just looked it up on maps.google.com in satellite mode and it shows it to be the 2nd fork off of the road. I don't remember the 1st fork being so pronounced. The image is much better than it used to be. You can almost make out the tombstones if you zoom in.
