McCauley- Mt Olivet
Dear Patricia,
I emailed my contact at mt olivet to inquire about William "Billy" McCauley Jr. and William McCauley Sr. As I stated, I took Sr's grave photo a while back and there was no marker there for Jr. I will let you know as soon as my contact there replies to my email.

Did you try to find their death certificates? There is a "Michigan, Death certificates, 1921-1952" file that you can search to find any information on them.

Martha Birdwell Memorial
Thanks for your valuable assistance and sponsorship. I'm happy to add any information as it comes along. There are memorials for all the siblings of B.L. Birdwell here except Allen. Most are interred at Meadow Creek. If there's a 'Greeneville Sun' obit since 1999, I have added it. That's as far back as their archives go.
Look forward to future correspondence,

Greeneville Connections # 2
Much appreciate your reply and am glad you're sharing this information with your Mother. Yes, I remember your Grandmother well. An especially nice lady who was very popular and highly regarded by everyone. Her house was near a creek waterfall, with the driveway on the other side. Everyone used the side entrance at the utility room.

Among my parents' artifacts is a church bulletin dated Jan. 30, 1955 from St. James' Episcopal Church, Greeneville. It's a souvenir of my infant baptism, along with 2 other then-newborns. One of them was Ben Royall. (The 3rd is another GHS classmate & Facebook friend).

It's a very old and historic church with a small congregation in a small town. We all knew each others' extended families as well as we knew our own. Besides the church connection, my Dad, Ben's and most of my friends' parents worked for the same company (Magnavox/Phillips: TVs, radios, stereo mfg.) There were 4,500+ employed at its peak.

The company's switch from wood to plastic cabinets brought the relocation of furniture workers (including Ben's father, a chemical engineer) to North Carolina. This was in the early '60s. My Dad, an electical engineer, was with MX/P until he retired.

I'm sure you know the river bridge en route to your Grandmother's house has been replaced, but I remember how scary the old one was. It was high over the Nolichucky and required driving on wooden planks. Steer the car the wrong way, and you'd be in trouble.

If you can find a photo of your Grandmother to add to her memorial profile it would be great. I can add links to her parents if you can forward their names. I took the photo of Meadow Creek Presb. Church & Cem. on her page while attending the reunion at Still Hollow.

Should you get to Greeneville I highly recommend a visit to the 'T. Elmer Cox Historical Archives' on N. Main St. They have an amazing assortment of old city and phone directories, cemetery profiles, church histories and newspapers on microfilm. The people who run it are very helpful and have done an excellent job putting this stuff together.

Look forward to correponding further, and I hope you will find me on Facebook.

All the best,

Memorial Additions & Greeneville conncections
I just wanted to say thanks for your addition suggestions to the memorials for Ben and Betty Royall. Any information you have is much appreciated, as there is always a need for missing dates and burial information.

From early childhood through high school I grew up in Greeneville, graduating GHS in 1972. Ben and I were the same age. Thanks to my parents' photo and home movie collection, I can verify Ben was at my first birthday party in 1955! Our parents were close friends and stayed in touch long after his family moved to Glen Alpine (and later Morganton) N.C. Occasionally Mom and other friends traveled there to attend Betty's pottery exhibits.

His younger brother, Joe, was my parents' godson. On the profile for their Dad (Wm. F. Royall Jr.) is a family photo from Joe's wedding. You might want to copy/paste this if you don't already have it.

We lived less than 2 blocks from the home of your G'ville cousins and also knew them well. Anne was 3 years ahead of me in school. Larry Cox was 3 years younger. Judy's husband, Tony Williams, was in my graduating class. Last summer our 40th reunion was held at Still Hollow Farm. We all stay in touch through Facebook.

On 'find-a-grave' most of the profiles I've made are for my own family and friends, along with a few I didn't know personally but at least knew about. I like to make each profile as thorough as possible, rather than try to create a great number.

It's an extension of an interest in history and genealogy. With an extensive collection of photos, movies, VCR tapes and color slides I've inherited, it will take years to upload everything. However, I look forward to it.

Again, thanks for the information and please stay in touch.

Best regards,
