Bio and Links
Bio Photo LaVonne and I have been married for almost (next month) 41 years. We have visited cemeteries for a number of years out of curiosity. In our "old age" we decided to join the volunteers on Find A Grave to make our curiosity of some use to others. We are transplants to this area (Western Tennessee) but have never lived in our birthplaces.

I do beleive the tombstones you posted for Jack are the wrong ones because they have J.T Martin and he is already posted in the same cemetery,the one Im looking for is older and I have his wife connected if it makes it easy to see.Thanks and have a blessed day.

RE: Lisa Hurst
Yes it does. Awkward as it was, she deserved recognition. Thank you for requesting it.

Sorry Von and Rich, something happened with my husband, but I'll be getting that photo either Mon/Tues this week. Sorry for the delay. Thanks.

How odd was it for me to be the one to claim this request for you. I "thought" that name sounded so familiar and then did a Google search. I personally knew that evil person that murdered her. Just goes to show you how deceptive humans can be. I'll will be going Friday to get the photo and yes, she does deserve to be acknowledged.

Rich, thanks for the great grave marker photo for Joseph Stewart in Gibson County Memory Gardens. Since it was a double marker with Kathleen Stewart, I made a memorial for Kathleen and requested a photo if you would like to add your photo for her.

Thomas Monroe Cole at Oak Grove Baptist
Thanks for searching for Thomas Monroe Cole's grave.

The main entry on Find A Grave indicates a "calculated relationship" with Henrietta C Aden Cole, his wife. Perhaps her grave is alone is marked and the original entry was made from conjecture, family records, or something other than visible evidence such as a headstone.

I do appreciate your trying!

Happy hunting,


Greetings from Find A Grave,

We are writing to let you know that a Find A Grave volunteer has reported a
problem with your photo request for Thomas Cole.

The general problem they reported is:
I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave

They also reported, specifically:
Don't know where (if they exist) the records for this cemetery are kept. Could
not find a marker for Thomas.

Your photo request is still active and has not been removed. Hopefully, another
contributor can fulfill your request.

Burress Grave Markers

Thank you so very much for the photos of the Burress headstones. We live in Bakersfield CA and we would never have these pictures if it were not for volunteers like yourself.

Thanks again, John A. Gonsalves
