Longs at Tindell
It would have been helpful to have the Findagrave # assigned to at least one of the people you asked about, but I did find them and the Tindell cemetery in Knox County after some searching.

To answer your question, I did not personally visit the cemetery. My entries were done based on the work of Robert McGinnis and his book "Gone But Not Forgotten, Volume 1, A Record of the Family Cemeteries of North Knox County, Tennessee" published in 2005. Usually his info is from a visual inspection of the tombstones with added info from obituaries and sometimes cemetery records.

Since there is no death date inscribed (he noted this), I do believe that there is a tombstone, but I don't think we can say with any certainty that Robert is actually buried there. He may have intended to be buried there, since a marker was purchased and put there, but without a death certificate that might state where he was to be buried, I cannot say.

There was more of a stigma with divorces, so I wouldn't put much faith that because Bessie was listed as a widow that meant she was and not divorced or perhaps William just deserted her and created a new life.

I'm not related and haven't researched the family. Just entered the info so that others could find their loved ones. There are many photo volunteers in the area and now that perhaps the snow has melted, perhaps a photo request might give you more info.

I do believe, because they are listed next to one another, that Robert and Louisa must share a marker because Louisa is listed as wife of Robert Long and that would be the assumption if you two shared the same marker.

Bessie was buried next and appears to be between her son Robert and her parents William W & Marietta Tindell. They all may be at the front of the cemetery since they are among the first 6 listings in the cemetery, so perhaps their markers would be easy to find if they are still there.

McGinnis notes that he first read the cemetery in 1977 and rechecked it in 2003.

I hope this info helps you. May not solve your puzzle, but I do believe there are markers for the Long family at Tindell.
