Needed corrections for the Snodgrass Cemetery
Mr. Goolsby,

I'm writing to request that you make two changes in your information on the Snodgrass Cemetery in White County, TN.

(1) the person currently identified as "Natie" should be identified as "Notie."

(2) The listing for Helen Jane Snodgrass Lansden (1875 - 1962) as being buried in the Snodgrass Cemetery is an error. She is interred in the Cookeville, TN Cemetery, next to her husband, D.L. Lansden.

Notie Lenora (Snodgrass) Fancher and Helen Jane (Snodgrass) Lansden were the two oldest daughters of my great-grandparents, Henry Clay Snodgrass, Sr. and his first wife, Ammie Rachel Cope.

The Snodgrass Cemetery in White County is on land that was, at one time, the Snodgrass family home. The cemetery initially held the remains of the two Snodgrass children, Kate and Florence, both of whom died while young. Notie (Snodgrass) Fancher died a few days after giving birth to a young daughter, who was also named, Notie, and following the burial of his wife next to her mother and sisters, Frank T. Fancher constructed the concrete block wall that currently serves to somewhat protect and to delineate the small cemetery area.

RE: Mary L. Metcalf
Sorry for the delay in answering you. I'm looking into it further. The birth and death dates aren't quite what I have but I'm going to research a little more before I say they aren't. Thanks for trying to track them down! Kim

RE: Southard
Thank you! I was copying and pasting and then started pasting the wrong mother in and didn't realize it until it was too late. That won't happen again! I'll work on it over the next few days.

Thanks you all the work you have done in the Sparta area. I appreciate that you will take the time to list the graves of babies and children that die you. Many do not list them. Without your work I would have never found this child. Thanks for the transfer

James K. Polk Pippin
Very curious. You would, indeed, think that the VA Graves Division would make sure before cranking out a bronze like that.

This is the second Union Vet in my tree that some well-meaning but uninformed descendant has marked as a Confederate. And they always get angry when you tell them the truth! :)

Which daughter are you descended from? I descend through his son, Henry Logan Cain Pippin (1869-1916). Cain Pippin's daughter, Blonnie, was my maternal grandmother. She actually abandoned my mother at the age of two (and she was given up for adoption), along with her older sister Frances, but they reunited with her later in life. I actually knew her throughout my childhood as my "Granny."

Do you live in middle Tennessee or elsewhere?

James Polk Pippin
Do you have any idea who marked the grave of James K. Polk Pippin?

They have him marked as serving in a Confederate unit. The 1st Tennessee Mounted Infantry was Union, and he even received a federal pension. They didn't give those to Confederate soldiers!

Just curious. I think it needs to be remarked and the record corrected.

BTW ... he is my 2hd Great-Grandfather.

Dear G.L. Goolsby,

Thank you for all you have done, are doing and shall do well.

It is done by you as many do here like a drink from the Fresh Water Spring going over the Va. Rt 151 Mountain in Nelson County Va.

Are we kin through the Stratton's which came from Vermont?

Please add me as your friend even if not kin on here at Find A Grave.

PS: Still a quandry in Va. with our Harvie/Harvey name spellings and docs. Harvey was one of the first names to land and the first Born Male of English Decent ( Baby Harvi/Harvey ) at Roanok Colony. Now in what is N.C. at Harvey Point ( CIA) where US Seal Team 6 Trained for Geronimo. They know of the female , Virginia Dare but so far all I have found on the first born male is BABY HARVIE/HARVEY.

James, not John, Branch Fox
Thank you for pointing out my stupid mistake with his first name. I had "James" and wrote "John." Can I blame it on a senior moment? And I appreiate the more specific birth and death dates. Is he a family member? I'd gladly transfer him. I am related, but not closely.
