Smith family
Hi Angie,

I recently found 2 children of Asahel & Caroline Smith buried in Old Lawrenceville Cemetery and have linked one to them (Ann Marie). Although many of these headstones were transcribed back in 2008, the survey crew did not correctly capture the information about the parentage of Ann Marie & Maria Louisa Smith. I carefully examined the headstones recently and discovered the link to your 4x great-grandparents.

I am trying very hard to unravel some of this information and convince other administrators to correct their memorials accordingly. Please have a look at these and let me know your thoughts. Feel free to e-mail me at

Hi. Aunt Ethel was my great aunt. I remember Aunt Ethel and Uncle Ezra living next door to my grandparents, Fred and Azalee Holcomb. Dora Dean and Marcus Holcomb were my great-grandparents. I played with Betty-Dean as a child.
I have some photos inherited from my mother, Ruth Holcomb Smith, that I will be going through soon. If I find any Conns or Bottoms, I will let you know.
One of my favorite places to go is the Conn's Creek Cemetary. We can trace the family back through many generations.

RE: Sharp Family
Hi Angie,

Unfortunately I do not know where Christian Sharp and his wife Jane are buried. The last census record that I have for Christian is 1870 and he was living with with his son Isaac in an area of land near Hwy 63. It took us years to find the "right" Sharp Cemetery where my ancestors are buried. There are several different Sharp Cemeteries in that area. The one where Christian's parents are buried is very over-grown and the etchings are extremely hard to make out on many of the stones. If you know where Christian's son Isaac is buried, it seems reasonable that his parents could be buried there too. We visit that area a couple of times a year and if I find any additional info that will help in your search, I'll let you know.

Bottoms Photos
Hi There Angie,
I fulfilled your requests for the Bottoms family photos at Zion Hill. I sent you a correction for Memorial# 87187806 - John Bottoms concerning his birth year. If there is anything else I can do on my end, please let me know.

RE: James Elmer Caldwell
I found your grandfather's grave stone today and posted the picture on his memorial. There are two listings for Bethlehem Cemetery on find a grave. If you search the cemetery lookup for Bethlehem in Warren County, Tennessee you will find the other listing for Bethlehem which is much more robust. They are the same cemetery but someone has made two listings. It is a very pretty, clean well maintained small cemetery. I think I found you some clues for his family and why you are having difficulty finding his family. James Elmer Caldwell's headstone is in the middle of the graves for Jim, Nancy E. and Alice M. Coldwell. Maybe his ashes was spread there? I am not sure. I guess James Elmer changed the spelling of his name to Caldwell from Coldwell? I walked every inch of this cemetery and these are the only Caldwell's headstones I can find in this cemetery. Someone who listed the Coldwell family spelled their name Caldwell so you might contact that person for some information on the Caldwell family. I also posted pictures of their headstones on their memorial. They have family links on the memorials so they seem to know this family fairly well. I found Jim and Nancy Elizabeth Coldwell in the 1930 census with a son named James born in 1926 living in Grundy County, Tennessee which is just about fifteen miles or so from this cemetery. From my experience with genealogy I am sure this is your family. I hope this information helps you with your search. Let me know if I can help you anymore. Jack Eslick

Margaret Ethel Holcombe Bottoms
Thank you for the e-mail. My great great grandmother was Ida Jane "Jenny" Conn Turner. Her father was Alfred Kimsey Conn and his father was Samuel Conn. My grandmother is 92 and remembers attending all the Conn reunions at Ball Ground. Many of Alfred's brother, Francis Marion Conn descendants moved to Rome, Ga. so my grandmother was close with all of them. Everyone called each other "cousin". Much of my info on the family is on find a grave with photos and obituaries if I can find them. Happy Researching, Amy

James Elmer Caldwell
Hello Angie,
I just received your photo request for James Elmer Caldwell. I do not know him or his family but the Caldwell family has been here in McMinnville for many years and I am pretty sure they were pioneer settlers in Warren County. There are streets and landmarks named Caldwell for the family. I have never heard of Bethlehem Cemetery but I will search for it and his grave this weekend and try to make photos for you. Good Luck, Jack Eslick

RE: Hope
I started clicking to accept, and I thought, these names seem familiar, lol. I'll have them in a couple of days.

Sorry I can't help you on James Elmer. I was too young to remember Jim & Aunt Bet. All I know is from kinfolk talking of them. They were wanderers traveling all the time - visiting kin and friends all over the country from Tennessee to California and back. Tales abound about how lazy Aunt Bet was every meal when it was time to clean up the dishes she would have to go to the outhouse. The last time they came to Granpa's house they revealed that they had lice - he ran them off and they were never back again.
