Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Tennessee and I am looking for the surnames of Barlow, England, Matthews, Ward, Poston, Masters, McGee, Allen, Lee, Grant, and Bradley. I am trying to locate as many generations of these names as I can for my own family research. While I am knocking around the cemeteries, I will do what I can to help anyone with documentation of other burials.
If anyone in Overton county, or the surrounding counties has an ancestor as a veteran, and the current marker is in really bad shape, I can help get a new VA marker put up for free. We put up several every year for families, free of charge and they are very happy with it.

RE: Ollie E Glasscock
Chris,
Oh, you are right. I'm not sure if she is buried there. I didn't think of that. Maybe, add her as a side note like you mentioned. I would like her mentioned as their child since she was on the census.
Thanks so much, Shirley

Pemission to use photos?
Hello. You have added photos to memorials of some of my family members. So far I have found the Bilbreys in Okalona Cemetery. May I please have your permission to include your pictures in my family records? Credit for the source would be included, and copies would be for personal use, not for publication or posting elsewhere on the internet. Thank you very much!

Chris,
I have been researching Charles Langford from Overton, TN. In his will he mentions daughters named Hester Ann Langford Barlow and Lillie Ann Langford Allen. Do you have any information on either one? I believe Hester Ann was born around 1850 and Lillie Ann in 1857.

Thank you,
Glenn

Bill Cooper farm cemetery
Thanks for getting back to me about this cemetery. It has so many names but was originally called Old Gardenhire, and was found in the Overton County Roll Call cemetery inventory book-1987 as Holford cemetery. Our family oral history says Jacob is buried in the uninscribed grave house, next to his wife and with his son Adam. Part of this is supported in letters included in his biography written by Lawrence Gardenhire which can be found in the Overton Co. library genealogy room. I am hoping it is you that is caring for this old cemetery. Someone had cleared away some of the smaller trees. According the the cemetery book there is at least one other cemetery, called Gilliland Farm cemetery on that property, but we did not find it.

Dear Chris,

After spending several days in Overton Co. Tn. cemeteries, I believe I have found the grave of Jacob Gardenhire, father of Adam Gardenhire on the Bill Cooper farm in Oak Hill. Jacob Gardenhire 13481594 has been vetted by the DAR. His grave stone is not inscribed but rather an old stone grave house. Parts of this cemetery have been recently cleared and I am wondering if you know anything about this cemetery.

RE: Old Barlow pictures
I finally found the picture for Pickens Barlow and wife Mary Jane which my father, Curtis, got from his father, Freeman Barlow. Uncle Pick is not in uniform. I was wrong about that. My grandfather Freeman wrote "Uncle Pick on it."

Also, somehow our picture of Thomas Barlow is missing. The one we used to have looked identical to the one you have so someone must have copied it and gave it to everybody. We gave Jack Masters the picture of Delia and her 8 sons, another of Delia and her siblings. So we have those 2.

I have one more picture. It is much older than Pick and Mary Jane's picture. The picture is medal. It is a couple and it can only be Freeman's line. No name written on it. So who are they?
