RE: Percy Waller
Hi Mike. Yes, you reached the correct person. If you would please forward those photos to me I will be forever grateful. Are you related to this family?

RE: Percy Waller

I'm not sure why you contacted me about the photos on Percy Waller's memorial since it's not my memorial and I had nothing to do with adding any of the photos there.

I suggest you contact the manager of that memorial, Cemeterian 47074065, and explain your situation regarding your cemetery marker photo.

Rick Lambert
William Lawson
I have William's service record and he died at Franklin Nov. 30, 1864. However, he wasn't listed in the cemetery book as one of the known soldiers. He is one of the Unknowns and I assigned one of those graves from his unit to recognize him as being there and giving his life for the cause. A photo of the stone would be nice...but not required.

Mike: You are a treasure my friend for making all those pics for me at the Joseph Henry Scales Cemetery in Triune, TN. I can't thank you enough for doing all that. I forgot to tell you that the grave of Samuel Scales which you could not find was reported years ago to be crumbling and very little of it was left. I got that info from a website somewhere a long time ago. Again, thanks so much. I really appreciate you.

RE: photos Hayes-McGavock Cemetery

I was asking if you would please transfer management of those five memorial pages to me. Your name will still show on the pages as the person who created them but mine would then show as the manager. You aren't required to transfer but I would very much appreciate it as these 5 were members of my family although distant.

To transfer a memorial page - make sure you are logged in then look in the upper right of the page. There is a line above the photo area that says "Transfer Management". Click on that and it will take you to a page with a box at the bottom where you enter the contributor ID number of the person you want to transfer the page to. Then click on "transfer this memorial". It will then ask you to verify that the contributor # you entered is the correct person.

If you are willing to transfer to me, my contributor # is 46937227. My name shows up as CB.

The 5 I asked for were:

Frank W Blair 77250500
Mary Blair 77250579
Ella Hayes 77250148
McGavock Hayes 77250342
Tommie Hayes 77250438

If you have any other questions about this please ask. It was wonderful of you to photograph this cemetery.

Frank W. Blair
After posting a message to you, I looked again for Frank W. Blair and don't find a page for him now. It looks like his page has been removed - I know I saw it some time back. He passed on in 2008 so was pretty recent. Maybe his children or some other family member didn't want him listed here or it may have been a matter of whoever created the page removed their memorials. Hard to say.

McGavock Hayes Cemetery

This is so great! I just noticed today that you have posted a photo of Lysander and Hortense Hayes monument to Hortense's page.

You left a note that you have photographed all the stones in the cemetery. Should I put in photo requests for the rest?

Oliver and Emily (McGavock) Hayes had a son, Thomas Pointer Hayes, that I have listed as "burial unknown" because I wasn't positive he is interred there. If your photos prove he was, I will move the page I created for him into the McGavock Hayes Cemetery.

Lysander and Hortense Hayes had a baby boy born and died in 1898. I don't think I created a page for him as, again, not sure he was interred there although he probably was.

Also, there should be a stone there for Frank Williamson Blair and probably his wife, Mary Elizabth (Hayes) Blair. Last I looked, a page for Frank was added to Find a Grave but it was added to the wrong cemetery. I think the page was added to the McGavock Cemetery and not the McGavock Hayes Cemetery. I didn't add the page for Frank so will see if I can get his page moved to the correct cemetery if you have a photo of his stone.

You should submit your photo of the cemetery sign to the cemetery page for approval by admins. It's a great photo and I see no reason why it wouldn't be approved.

Thanks for all your work. Great job!

RE: Hightower Cemetery

If you could get back there and check those dates on Nancy Hightower's marker I'd appreciate it. Some people think her year of death is 1819 but I'm certain it was 1849. As worn as that inscription is I think it's going to be hard to tell if it's a 1 or a 4. I don't remember the inscriptions being that badly worn on any of those box markers but they must have been. I wish I'd had my camera with me that day.

I don't know who lives in the house now but when I visited the cemetery in 1998 I talked to the couple who were the owners at that time. The husband said that the Brentwood Historical Society had asked him if they could put a fence around it. He didn't like the idea of a fence and said he asked them, "Are you going to mow it?" I got the feeling that if the BHS wasn't going to keep it up he didn't want a fence there. If it's now different people living there I don't know what they would think about a fence. I'm just surprised that someone would let it grow up like it is now since it's right in their side yard like that and it being a nice house and all. The couple who lived there before kept it trimmed down although they had tall plantings of some sort on the back side of the stack of broken slabs that would hide them from the road.

Thanks again.

Hightower Cemetery

Thank you for your efforts in getting the photos in the Richard Hightower Cemetery.

Disappointing to see the cemetery so badly kept. It wasn't like that 13 years ago when I was there and the 4 slabs with inscriptions were still all on their bases. Have read these type markers are called wolf boxes. Nancy Hightower's marker appears to have dates on it. I can see the words Born and Died in your photo. Wish I had noted the dates when I was there. Don't know why I didn't. Her year of death is a bit of a question to some although I believe it to have been 1849 from things I've read.

Thanks again.
