Bio and Links
I am interested in finding final resting places of my family members. I was born in McMinnville, TN, and now live in Middle Tennessee where most of my ancestors lived and are buried.

When I visit a cemetery, I will check to see if there are any photo requests pending and will attempt to locate the requested graves.

It has meant a great deal to me when I see a relative's grave site on Find a Grave, and I am grateful to those who have worked tireless hours to take and post pictures.

I am working on my family lines of Cardwell, Brandon, Baldwin, Watson, Dennis, Jaco, Martin, Shasteen/Chastain, Majors, Bobo, Burgin, Duncan and Steakley.

Brandon Cemetery
Thanks for the information Barbara. My ancestor is the Joseph Daniel that I put on Find a grave in Brandon Cemetery. I believe I recieved the information from a Revolutionary grave sites listing and family members who did the research before me. I live in Calif and would love to be able to help with the clean up of that cemetery if I lived closer. I will be persuing some of the ideas you gave me when I make a trip out to Tennessee in the next few years. It may be a few years because I am tied up with taking care of aging family at present. Thanks for your help. Sharon Daniel Amos

Brandon Cemetery
Hi Barbara, I noticed you have quite a knowledge for the Brandon Cemetery in Tennessee. Is there anywhere that has records of who all is buried in this cemetery? I was told by geneological research that my Revolutionary war patriot is buried there and I wanted to find out more information if it is available. I would appreciate any place you could steer me to maybe even get a headstone placed there for my patriot since what I have a photo of is just a piece of rock marking his supposed grave. Thanks for all your contributions to find a grave. Sharon

RE: John Moffett Brandon
Allen Moffett Brandon married my Great Grandmother Jennie Pearl Thomas (28 OCT 1890-26 NOV 1967) in Laurens County (Rintz), Georgia around 1907-08, I haven't located the exact date as yet. "Brandon", as I always heard him referred to, was High School Principal in Tennessee possibly Murfreesboro. He was several years older than my Great Grandmother. They had one child my Grandmother, Susie Elizabeth Brandon. Pearl married two more times after Brandon. She is buried under her last married name, Pearl T. Marsh, in Oaklawn Cemetery, Jacksonville, Florida.
Thurmon Brandon "Buster" was my Grandmothers half brother. Buster was a West Point Graduate in the 1930's. He received his appointment from Al Gore Sr. Buster retired from the Army and returned to school as a professional student at the University of South Carolina. His ashes are located at West Point with his fellow class members. My Grandmother "Susie" didn't meet her father "Brandon" until she was 28 years old. I can provide more information if you wish.

You're welcome, Barbara. I'm going to get back over there at mid-day to see if deeper shadows improve the readability. A little "spring green" on the grass wouldn't hurt, either!
