|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family since 1998 using the LDS library and that horrible census aid: soundex. I still go to the library now and then, but I don't use soundex! I've been a subscriber to Ancestry.com since 2000 and the census records there have really spoiled me. |
My research began with my maternal grandparents. Both were born in Campbell County, Tennessee. These two have, of course, led me to other names and places.
Although the top of this profile states that I've been a member for 2 years and 4 months, I actually only started hunting for my own family here on Find A Grave a year ago, March 2012. Prior to that time I was just placing flowers on memorials. So for this past year, like a hen with her chicks, I've gathered my family. I'm almost finished with my goal of a direct line ascendency, even though at times I have strayed.
As we all know, families separate, moving on to distant locations, and quite often cannot be buried with the families they left behind. So I have linked my families together in these cyber cemeteries provided by Find A Grave and hundreds of volunteer memorial creators and photographers.
The memorials I manage are never finished. I'm either adding or subtracting information all the time. There are quite a few that do not have bios -- yet.
Find A Grave statement re cleaning headstones:
GRAVESTONES SHOULD NEVER BE CLEANED WITH ANYTHING BUT WATER AND A SOFT BRUSH. Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.
I invite researchers of East Tennessee to the memorial for Peter Graham Fulkerson. The name P.G. Fulkerson is probably more familiar. P.G. was a farmer, lawyer, judge and district attorney general who also had an interest in history and genealogy. He created brief records, perhaps a paragraph or two, of some of the early settlers of Claiborne County. As he created for some of my ancestors, his memorial is my brief record, a paragraph or two, of The Honorable Peter Graham Fulkerson.
Take time to follow the link on his memorial to his answers to The Tennessee Civil War Veterans Questionnaires.
"What is called my character, or nature, is made up of infinite particles of inherited tendencies from my Ancestors, whose blood runs in my veins.
. . .
My so-called particularities – my gestures -- my way and mannerisms, I borrowed from all, without exception. I am sewn between Ancestry and Posterity. I am a drop of water in the flowing river of time; a molecule in a mountain; a cell in a great family tree." Oliver Wendell Holmes

Hi, I guess it must be a glitch because I definitely didn't remove the photo. I tried to view it and all I can see is a square question mark. The photos I added to a memorial for this cemetery is fine, but only the main photo for this cem is messed up. What can be done about this?

I am sorry, but my husband and I do not have any Ellison Cemetery photos. Someone else posted the pictures and for some reason has opted to pull his pictures.

|Kurt Johnson||Jewell Hensley|
No, I am afraid that I was not aware of that. Since you were connected to her, would you like me to transfer her memorial to you? You could certainly do a much better job with it than I have.
Thank you for sending the correction. I apprecaite it!
