RE: Old Sardis Cemetery Sign
Holly,

We just live about a half mile away and my wife has family buried there. Mary Ann Jones Powell is her 3rd Great grandmother and was the mother of Louisa Jane 'Coon' Powell, who married Robert Lee Burns. They are buried in Macedonia Cemetery, as is her Great grandparents, Dona 'Donie' Ardella Burns, wife of John Adam Porterfield. Her grandmother was Elza Karma Porterfield, wife of Thomas Murrah 'Bill' Connell.

My father-in-law is John William Connell and he knew the Porterfield and Burns connections, but was surprised when I told him that Mary Ann Jones Powell was his Great, Great grandmother.

I moved here from Ohio after 2004 and am a paraplegic. I try to take pictures for relatives when requested and my wife, Donna Connell Glendening, is my picture taker in areas like Old Sardis. I wish I was able to do more, but at least I know who took care of the weeds and pines that were about to take over there again. Also, I thought the county had provided the sign.

Many thanks to you and may I ask if you have family buried there? We could try to give some of the graves a little extra attention once warmer weather comes around again.

Sincerely,
Terry Glendening
