I don't think that I'm related to this family so if you would just send me the request through the memorial (any that you might be related to) then I'll be glad to transfer them right over to you :)
|Phil Penny||Good to hear from you|
It's been a while. Feel free to email me anytime if there's anything I can do for you. (email@example.com)
I know my great grandparents William Henry Sowder 1853-1946 and Mary Jane "Polly" Meece Sowder 1856-1939 and their son John Christopher Sowder 1878-1933 and his wife Lula Mae Harrison Sowder 1888+1932, my grandparents
and their son James Sowder 1916-1920 are buried
at Livesay. When we went there I only knew that my grandparents were buried there and they have a headstone, did not know at that time to look for the others. I visited my great grandfather Wm Henry Sowder shortly before he died and he was
bedridden and living with his daughter and her family. I remember I was about 10 years old and went up to his bedside and he had a long white beard and was very frail. The story of my Grandma Lula was she died of TB and just a few short months later my Grandpa John died of a stroke. My mother, their daughter always thought he died of a broken heart. The children were scattered around to friends and relatives, but stayed close. The story of James...my mother and her twin brother were about 7 years old and took little James with them to play at a nearby lumber yard. They followed their brother's lead climbing over stacks of lumber when it shifted and James was buried underneath. My uncle ran for help as my mother's legs were trapped, but it was too late to save James. My mother recovered from her injuries.
If I make it back down there I will surely look for the other graves. Thanks for your help.
Parents took my sister and me there to visit my
mother's family buried there-especially her parents. This was in 1950s. My daughter and I were there, too in 2012 on Mother's Day. I live in the country but she is a city girl and seeing the cows so close gave her a little scare. I convinced her they wouldn't bother her and of course they were curious but too busy eating to pay much attention to us. Just this year I find I have other family there and long to go back. Would you know the name and phone number or address of the lady who posted a sign saying she would be glad to accept donations to maintain this cemetery? I was pleased my grandparent's headstone was standing and in good shape. I had forgotten to stop to purchase flowers but there was so many beautiful wildflowers I picked some for them. Good to hear from you.

I'll keep an eye out for this name as I'm researching. Thanks for the "heads up."

Hi, I just added photos for David Dickerson memorial #77458504. I think it confirms that he was married to Martha Hysinger Dickerson. I added captions under the photos.

I recently went to White Oak Cemetery because my grandfather had told me that he was buried there and I photographed Jacob and his wife graves. I would be glad to send them to you and for his location to be changed. Thank you.
|Sheila Skidmore||Hello Again|
Great to hear from you - Today Richard and I celebrated our 47th Anniversary (time just flies). We have 2 daughters and 4 beautiful granddaughters. We live within 2 hours of all of them. We live in Jackson, TN. I retired 8 years ago and Richard is making plans to retire in the next year or so. He works for the Tennessee Baptist Convention in Retirement and Tax Plans for Baptist Ministers. He pastored 4 churches and was the Director of Missions in Weakley County Tennessee for 17 years while the girls were growing up.
I remember the wonderful times we had when you were our Rainbow Girl Leader. The great trips to the Convention in Louisville and other time we enjoyed.
Hope all is well with you - would love to hear about you and your family.
Blessings on you and your family,
