I may be a little slow, but I eventually get there! Just saw your father's memorial. Now I know the connection. Your dad is Clara's stepbrother. So, you and my husband aren't really relatives, but in my opinion you still are. What a sad, yet beautiful story Clara's family's life was. To her, my husband's great grandmother was the only mother she ever knew and his grandmother, Alta, was probably more of a sister to her than an aunt.
I would be very interested in talking to you more about these folks at your convenience.
We live in Republic, MO, and have friends and relatives in the St. Louis area, if that is where you are. Will be coming to St. Louis in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks again,
Roxie (Eaton) Sharpe

I noticed you posted flowers on this memorial stating she was a "sweet aunt." My husband is Clara's 1C1R and I am looking for any photos or further information I can get on her and her parents and grandparents.
Here is what I have so far:
Father: Elihu S. Tharp 10/12/1878-04/24/1924
Mother: Mary (Duren) Elizabeth Singleton 03/20/1888-02/11/1918
Grandfather: Augustus Whitaker Tharp 1856-1905
Grandmother: Elizabeth "Eliza" (Graham) 1856-1911
I also have her aunts and uncles and many pictures.
I would love to connect my husband's branch to yours.
Please let me know how you are Clara's niece so we can further complete his family tree.
Thank you,
Roxie (Eaton) Sharpe
P.S. My husband:
Harvey Don Sharpe.
Mother, Ellen Arizona (Scrivner) Sharpe - Clara's 1st cousin
Grandmother: Alta Lee (Tharp) Scrivner - Elihu's sister
Grandparents: same as Clara

RE: Kinship
George W. Medley. I wondered if your husband was a descendant.

I'm curious if you are related to this man? I was married to and have 4 children by his great grandson, George O., also buried there. We were divorced, but I still do research for my children, grandchildren, and now great grandchildren.

RE: Macedonia Cemetery
Worked it from site for Gibson County - guess I should have paid attention to the notice at the top of the listing - "This cemetery is in Obion County"

Elihu S Tharp / Mary Elizabeth Duren Singleton
I am researching my husband's family lines and have more information regarding Elihu S. Tharp. My husband's grandmother is Elihu's sister, Alta Lee Graham Tharp (1896-1976).. I also have a photo (cir. 1910) of Elihu's mother with two of his sisters (Lillie E. Tharp 1893-?) and Alta along with a granddaughter of Eliza's (I'm wondering if this 10 yr old granddaughter could be Elihu's daughter from his first marriage?).
You may want to include Elihu's parents in this listing (or any other info. you feel might be important):
Father: Augustus Whitaker Tharp: b. Oct. 1856, Perry Co., TN d. 1901-1910 in Clay Co., Brown, AR
Mother: Elizabeth "Eliza" Green Graham b. Sept. 1856, Perry Co. TN d. Clay Co., AR?

The 1910 US Fed Census for Clay Co., Brown Township, Arkansas shows Eliza as "widowed" with 2 daughters and a granddaughter (10 yrs old) living with her. I believe these are the females in the photo mentioned earlier.

I would like more information regarding Elihu's first marriage, if possible. I need his first wife's name and any children they may have had. Also, I am trying to find his mother's parents, but I understand that records before 1908 in TN are pretty much non-existent.

Thank you,

I was working in Hillcrest Cemetery in Excelsior Springs Missouri and noticed you were maintaining Richards wife so after I got Richard done I transferred him to you. It may need some refining.

I was also looking for Trace Creek. I found who I was looking for at Dabbs Cemetery at Trace Creek. I searched but did not see your people online at Lewis County Cemetery website. It would be unusual to only have two people at this cemetery. The death certificate I was looking also said Trace Creek. There are other Tatums at this cemetery. Just a thought.........Kathy

Hello. I have been ill, so excuse me for being tardy in my reply. My gggrandparents are buried there. James Edward Vaughn and Martha Ann (Whitehead) Vaughn = their headstones are the big ones by the road. Now their daughter Agnus Spain has two boys in there. One lived for almost a year, the other one i can not remember. but they are two headstone towards the woods. Agnus is buried in St.francois memorial park. Now as for my uncle, Roy Lynn Vaughn, I asked my dad if we could go see the grave of uncle roy. He told me there wouldnt be anything left to see. but over time he did tell me that it was at the edge of the cemetery. but if you can get a metal detector and searched you might be able to pick up the lid on the old mason jar that has his name dates on it. And I have an other uncle buried there samuel j vaughn. Now he did have a headstone in there, May I ask if you have uptained a list of names I would appreciated it if you would get me a copy I would totally appreciate it. I might find more relatives in there. Thank you. I will help all i can. thank you

Funeral home records have lots of incorrect information in them, as I have encountered in the past. The headstone says age 65, so that is the date I feel most comfortable with using. (until a better source arises, like an obit from a paper of the time) No pre1910 death cert is showing up on the state site.

RE: Memorial #66923915
Thanks Brenda. I have changed birth year per your information, I did find Brinkley is in Knox County. The county name may have changed but Find A Grave would not accept anything other than Knox. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of his marker. If there is any difference, please let me no. Thank you.
