I try to add any information when I can and am now adding some information to graves that are listed. I do Google searches on them.

I went though Maple Grove taking photos to make a record of those gone a head of us, I will try to get back and see if I miss another grave close with the Greene name.

This is a nice size beautiful cemetery.

I'm not sure. Someone else added the name on her memorial.

RE: Helen Elwood
Hey Shirley,

I posted Helen Elwood's obituary at her memorial. Please check to see if you recognize any of the names.

RE: Helen Elwood
Hey Shirley,

Thanks for the kind words, but the site is not mine. I am simply a contributor to the website we are using.

I am not sure how much help I can be but I will make an attempt. For starters, we need to find out if this Helen Louise Elwood is the right person about which you speak. I did a quick search and did find out she was born a Burnett in Illinois. When she died, she was a resident of Tennessee. I don't know much else about her. All I did was take a photo of her tombstone and place it here with her memorial.

When I get the chance, I will run by the library to see if I can find an obituary for her. Hopefully that will give us some names to see if you might know any of them. When I did a search at, it brought up several Helen Elwoods from around the United States. I want to make sure you have the right Helen.

Not sure what would have been wrong with the email addresses. I am thinking you might have tried to respond to the generated no-reply emails Find-a-grave sends out to us to notify us of changes to the memorials.

Try sending me another email at my regular email:

Please give me a little bit more detail so I can see if we are in the right ballpark. I might be able to find some things here if this is the correct Helen. If she ends up being in another state, I may not be able to assist much.

But let's try this to see what we can do.

You sent me an edit to add pertinent information to her memorial, but instead of giving me her parents name, you have them on a flower! That is NOT what a flower is for!! I am adding them in her bio where they belong - please delete the info on the flower.

The Pickrell Cemetery was moved to Pine Hill. The property was sold several years ago and we moved all the graves. They are in a section together with a marker indicating that it is the Pickrell family. There were only 13 graves. Annie's was one of them.

Iris is buried at Greenlawn close to Granny, Grandad (moved there several years before Granny died) my parents and Aunt May, Granny's other sister. Leta and Carrie Pickrell are also in Greenlawn.

There is a Pine Hill Cemetery in Louisa. I have entered a few names from there. One is Chief Justice Fred Vinson.
