RE: Claim them! Thank you very much. I wanted to check with you and make sure. The last thing I want to do is as the old saying goes "step on somebody's toes". My great grandparents are John Tipton and Myra S. Tipton. If there is ever any information or pictures you need from Unicoi County or the surrounding area, feel free to ask. I will do my best to get it. Once again thank you.
Photo Request There is a photo request for James Tipton and Amanda Tipton buried at Blankenship Cememtery in Unicoi County, Tennessee. I claimed the request because they are my great great grandparents and took some pictures of their grave marker, but after seeing that you have already posted photos, I have not. If you wish I will unclaim the request so that you may claim it.
It's an older cemetery, and back then they believed in burying their loved ones as close to heaven as they could. If you can find Blankenship Cemetery Road, it's at the very top of the road even though it looks like the road ends. The GPS coordinates are available on Find A Grave. I had to use them to find it!
It makes me think that your marker will not be found, but unless one looks I can't be sure. I have so many requests to fulfill and don't know when I will get there. The ones on private property are always harder to access.
