RE: Williams Family Cemetery
Hi again,

I made the changes to Catharine and Infant Son. George and Viney were transferred to someone else. Who is Lewis Jake? There was no such stone in the cemetery (I also didn't see one for George, but there were a few broken).
I'll inform the person who now maintains the other 2 memorials about the updated dates. She is actually related to Ezekiel and Deony and others.
After you replied last time I remembered that we met Bob Williams, who is also directly related to Ezekiel. How wonderful of you to clean it up and for the current occupant to keep it up!! I wish we could find more people like you! Thanks so much.

Hi Don,

Thanks so much for the updates. I will get to them in a few days. I had a request to change something on one of the stones there (Catharine). I'm sending it to you below, in its entirety. I don't want to make any changes like this unless I know the source from which they came. This same lady had posted 2 memorials in Bent Creek (Hamblen County) for Williams' members which were actually in the Williams Cemetery. Carole Thomason resolved that one with her.

Are you the gentleman Carole and I met one day on the road to the cemetery? You were with your wife? Carole's father, C.D. Thomason was in the car with us also.

Their suggestion:
she was born in 1824 in Jefferson Co TN
she married Isaac B White in 1841
they had 1 son Alexander White born 1845
*don't know why she is buried as Williams instead of White*
thank you so much.
