George Marion Estes Thank you SO MUCH for the addition of George's middle name! I only listed him because we were in the cemetery tracking down my great-great grandmother and I wanted to list everyone for whom we found a stone. So if you would like a transfer, I am more than happy to do that - he is not kin to me as far as I know.
RE: Clara Ensminger You're welcome... and thank you! Because of your request, I discovered I made a huge mistake. I already had a picture of Clara Jane's stone! I mistakenly created a memorial for "Infant" Ensminger and put Clare Jane's photo there. I corrected the name, but now there is a duplicate memorial for Clara Jane because Geniereese already created one for her. Since Geniereese created her memorial first, I am deleting mine and adding my photo to Geniereese's memorial. If you look really close, you can see it says CLARA JANE. I don't know why I didn't see that before. I even looked at this same stone again when I was at the cemetery but it's not even readable now. The photo I have was taken about 4 years ago. So thank you, thank you, very much for helping me uncover this mistake. I don't want the information I post to be inaccurate. Now I'll go back to the cemetery with some chalk and see if I can make out the verse, or at least part of it. :) Wendy Houck
The information that Willie Thompson McCutcheon was a child of Thomas B. and Kitty (Steele) McCutcheon came from a brief family record written by Maria Shields Steele (sister of Kitty McCutcheon)in 1938. She named 6 children including Willie.
In another hand-written record that appears to also have been written by Maria, she gave the locations of who was buried where in the B.F. Shields lot in the City Cemetery. At least, those who had died as of the time she wrote that. Maria died in 1963. She named Willie Thompson in that record also.
Willie's death certificate indicates female.
Pretty sure Willie doesn't have a grave marker.
According to her death certificate, Katherine Shields (McCutcheon) Cannon is buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Williamson County, TN. I believe that info is accurate - and her name isn't on the map of the Shields Lot as buried there. Her 2nd husband, Sam Cannon, is also buried in Mt. Hope. They'd been married 19 years when Sam died so it makes sense she'd be buried with him.
I have added Katherine and Sam to Find a Grave and linked Kate to her parents. Not sure why I haven't added them here before now as I had the info in my family tree but it's done now.
I spelled Katherine's first name - with a "K" - as Maria wrote it in her family record.
I think that's everything I have in the way of how I know Willie was T.B. and Kitty's child - and that Kate didn't die as a child.
