Bio Photo I am retired and live in Lincoln County, TN.

My ancestors in this area lived in Mimosa, Charity, Chestnut Ridge, Petersburg, and Howell communities. A high school classmate and I focus on Locating and restoring lost, neglected, otherwise not maintained cemeteries in the area. It is our way of showing respect for those who preceded us.

The Mikado, et al.
Just checking in...
Any updates on the misplaced Ashby-Warden-Groce Cemetery?

I still think the owner moved it or bulldozed it or some such.

Thank you very much for taking the photo of Dorothy's headstone. Would you consider sending me a copy of your photo and giving me permission to use it in the family tree program and on Ancestry.com? I appreciate the time and effort it took for you to fulfill my request.

Sarah Scott
Jimbo:

Thank you for the nice shot of the grave marker of Sarah Scott. You better stay inside and take care of yourself. Going out in 30 degree weather with the flu is taking chances that nobody would expect you to do.

Jimbo! A man after my own heart! I too prefer to find the old stones and recover what was thought to be lost. Good work! Thank you so much for finding her. I will notify another lady who supplied me much of the info on the family. Glad you have a friend who shares your interests. Harvey

Old Fayetteville City Cemetery
Jimbo:

I see that you have done some work in the Old Fayetteville City Cemetery. My great-great-grandfather, James Hague, is buried in this cemetery. I live in Texas and have only visited the cemetery once about 20 years ago. I have submitted a request for a photo of the grave marker of Sarah Emily Smith Scott #45083812. There are currently 9 request for photos in this cemetery going back to Jul 2011. It seems no one is currently taking an interest in this cemetery. I would really appreciate it if you could swing by the cemetery and take some photos of this grave. I was sent a copy of the grave marker that a family member pulled off the internet, but I do not want to post it without permission of the person who took the photo. If you could take one photo far enough back to see the entire marker and then a close up photo so that the inscription can be read, I would really appreciate it.

This is one beautiful old cemetery. If I lived closer, I would take this one on as a project.

Thank you for the work you do for Find A Grave. I hope you can make it out to he cemetery to take some photos of this grave.

RE: Brown's Temple
Sad to hear of your experience with that ant bite. prayerfully all will go well in your recovery.

I did take a look at Antioch and am now in the process of placing memorials on the graves there, as I did in all the ones in Browns.
You are truly a blessing to F.A.G.

You could be right about the reason for the confusion about those entries on the death certificates as Lebanon being the burial place.

Take care of yourself and Happy New YEAR to you and the Mrs.

Again Thanks
Hi Jimbo,
Again I thank you for all your work you've done in Browns Temple.
Last we talked you told me some of the post I'd done for Lebanon were not located there. I tried to work with family to get that cleared up, to little avail, as the older family member were adamant about that being the correct burial place. Any names I see you have posted in Brown I'll certainly remove from Lebanon. Since most of the people died so long long ago, I'm wondering if there could have been another cemetery with the Lebanon name in the early part of the 20th century.
Again WONDERFUL job!

Ancestry & FindAGrave
Here's a good article on the Ancestry purchase of FindAGrave;
If you look at the Ancestry list of genealogy sites they now control
you'll notice that they handle different sites differently. I suspect that FindAGrave will probably be kept free and separate although the look of it may be modified a bit; sure hope so, anyway.
