Bio and Links
I have been researching my Tipton ancestors for about five years. Although there are many Tiptons in Tennessee, where I currently live, none of them appear to be related within the last six generation or so. So I am dependent on others for most of the photos and other data about my relatives. I recently joined Find A Grave to try to pay back the favor.

When I visit a cemetery in response to a photo request, I usually try to take photos of other headstones in the area. If there is not already a Find A Grave memorial for the person, I will create one based on the information found on the headstone. Since these are generally not related to me, I am willing to transfer the memorial to other members, even if they do not meet the relationship guidelines listed in the Find A Grave FAQs. Just ask. (If the memorial is for someone actually related to me, I will still consider the transfer but will be less inclined to deviate from the FAQ guidelines.)

Although photos published in Find A Grave are considered to be copyrighted by the photographer, feel free to copy my photos to other sites as long as the appropriate credit is given. Since the Find A Grave photos are generally published at reduced resolution, if you want a high-resolution copy, drop me an e-mail and I will send you a copy of the original file. Please include the name and Find A Grave memorial number for the photos that you want.

I try to respond to photo requests within Cumberland County (Crossville), Tennessee, and the immediately surrounding counties. However, if the request is for somebody in a private cemetery, I would appreciate it if the requesting party would make the initial contact for permission to access the property. I will try to help with getting contact information if necessary.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I changed the dob to Dec. 9, 1930 but like you, I wish we had a birth certificate to verify his birth.

When you go back to Akins Cem look by JOhn and Sarah Evans and see if there is an unmarked grave there. J T Evans should be buried near them
