Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my families a few years ago.My mother asked me to take her and her two brothers to a family reunion in Tennessee thats when Old photo's got me curious enough to start asking questions about my family. I am still looking and asking. my mother father was a Taylor and her mother was a Smith, both were born in Tennessee and came to Texas after they married. Find a Grave has been a great source of genealogy to me. I have made many new friends and have met alot of cousins and family , I probably would of never of met otherwise. I guess you might say find a Grave and Ancestry has become a hobby of mine,Also my father was killed in a Automobile accident when I was nine yrs old and I knew nothing about his family. Thanks to everyone for sharing.

RE: Jesse Sissom 125562630 /Melissa Sissom 125562690
I just read the bio on one of the memorials and have that the Sissom Cemetery and Milligan Cemetery are one and the same. They have been called by both names for years and years.

Hi Linda, my husband's sister helped survey and write the Rutherford Co., TN and Cannon Co., TN Cemetery Books and she researched the Sissoms and Todds for 50+ years. She is the one who told us where the Sissoms were buried. I know there was a cemetery that had been called two different names but don't remember if it was that one or not. I have never researched the family since she had been working on it for so long. Thanks for writing.

RE: Mary Cooper Sissom 140967764
Hey Linda,

There was no way you knew that Mary's grave was unmarked. No need to be sorry. I have a great working relationship with Barbara at Forest Hills and my wife (Collen) and I enjoy fulfilling request marked or unmarked.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you in the Chattanooga area.

Linda: I noticed you posted a memorial for Willie Mae (Hill) Martin,(134638004) She was John Martin's second wife. John Martin and his first wife were buried in a mausoleum there in Itasca, according to my grandfather, his second wife had John and his first wife moved to Dallas. The mausoleum in Dallas must contain John and his first wife. I don't know where you live but if close to Dallas maybe you could check it out.

RE: Itasca Cemetery
Linda, Made it to Itasca twice, once on my way down to Houston and on my way back, all during that bad weather we were having. Talked to Nadine at the funeral home, she let me go through the records there, but I did not find anything on my uncle. His funeral was all paid in cash, no records were kept.

Met with the guy, can't remember his name, who takes care of the burials at the cemetery. We went over the burial plot where our relatives are. I thought there were only six people buried there but he thinks there are nine and one more grave site that is not used. Have no idea who the other three are, there are no monuments.

Since it seems we can't find the exact location of Travis's grave I believe I'll have a Cenotaph put up in the family burial plot. At least the world will know he lived for a short while here on earth.

Hope all is well with you.

RE: Berry King Taylor 136538673
Delete the memorial last after you've, checked to see if he received a land grant here in Ar. or if family or himself applied for his war pension. It will tell you where he landed after the war.
Many battles were fault here in Ar. all the way from Ft. Smith to Little Rock. After the war, the Bushwacker & Jayhawks worked the people over pretty bad, stilling from and killing them who fault for the other sides. Most of the cemetery records around here were handwritten or walk through of data taken off the stones from 1990-present day by genealogy folks. If he had only a field stone they wouldn't have known. Meaning your cousin's information maybe still be correct.
Good luck to you in the voyage!
May Peace & Blessings go with you..Amen
