Memorial # 95259140 Robert Cager Brashears
Hi, “Irish”. This memorial seems to be creating confusion. There is another memorial out there # 118891774. However, the creator of that memorial states that Richard’s being buried in Brashears-Kries Cemetery is incorrect. Please review the information given on that memorial, then the two of you can “duke it out” and PLEASE end up with only one memorial remaining. I would greatly appreciate it; it is so confusing when there is more than one out there, and especially when they’re contradictory. It would also be nice if one of you could then let me know which memorial number is correct. Thanks. Genealogyjudy

Robert Cager Brashears is not buried where you have indicated. His son did not purchase this land until 10 years after his father Cager died. RSB's wife Phoebe was moved here later, but there is no proof his father was buried here. I am Cagers 6X grand grandson and help care for the cemetery.

Brashears/Dowell Guilford, NC & Roane , TN
I have seen many claims that Robert Cager Brashears and Charity Dowell died in Guilford Co, NC. Is that correct? Were their remains physically removed to Roane Co, TN? If so, when and by whom?
I am descended from their daughter, Ann Nancy, who married Moses Ball, Sr.
Thanks for any information.

I was wondering what information you had that you determined that Robert Cager Brashears was buried at the Kries-Brashears cemetery?

RE: Patterson Families
Hi, No I haven't found any information, or even heard any family rumors, of Native American ancestry in the Patterson line. Sorry, and good luck in your search.

Della Weems Jelks
Tombstone photo added to memorial. Death date inscribed on stone corresponds with Texas Certificate of Death, so perhaps you may wish to change the memorial date. She is buried alongside Louie and Martha Jelks in Pine Grove.

I guess you could request a death cert from the Alabama Dept of Public Health.
