|Bio and Links|
I've always loved hunting thru graveyards, even as a child I could be found exploring and reading the stones. I participate in many memorial services as a "Black Rose" (mourner) with the TN Society Order of Confederate Rose. Tho' I don't know but few of the names I list I believe everyone should be remembered, their lives are full of stories we'll never know, most leaving just a rock to speak their existence. I live in middle Tennessee, we have many small family graveyards here. As a genealogist I have found clues and info on FAG I've not found elsewhere. FAG has many errors and I'm more than willing to correct any that I may have on my memorials. Also I am NOT into the numbers games I believe information belongs to us all, ask NICELY I will transfer to you. I am genealogist at the Smith County, TN, library - if anyone needs any look-ups done out this way, email me, message here, or call the library T-TH, 615-735-1326.|

|Angela Whiting||RE: Robert Bruce Battersby|
As I understand it, yes. They are in Sulfur Springs, AR. It's the next town up the road from Gravette, right up to the Missouri state line. They have a web site that shows they grow things organically and sell at some places. Sulfur Springs was founded based on the springs there. Like several Arkansas towns, they grew based on the healing effects of the springs at in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Shiloh group is still there, but I can't remember when they moved there. I think there's more information about their group online than I know; we're fairly new to the area.
|Angela Whiting||RE: Robert Bruce Battersby|
You are quite welcome. His stone is actually flat, with a reference to Shiloh on it. The large upright Shiloh stone overlooks a section where all the people with the Shiloh group have been able to be interred together. I was told that the group went to the cemetery people and chose and reserved a section for all their members. All the members have a stone with the Shiloh symbol and verse on it. It's in a peaceful area of the cemetery, surrounded on two sides with nice trees and away from the road.

Can you post directions to get to this cemetery? I'm coming from Nashville and am somewhat familiar with the roads in the RBS area. Thanks!
|robert gibbs||Thank you|
For all the obituaries your found for me
|Joe A. Jamison||Enoch Fisher, Denton-Manning Cemetery|
The information recorded is a bit off in regard to Enoch Fisher's marriage to Elizabeth Malone:
"After his discharge from the service, he returned to his home in Punch (Watervale) to farm. In 1864 he married Elizabeth Malone, the daughter of Yancy and Rhoda Malone. To this union were born two children, Mary Lee who married Leonard Word and James Neal "Jim" who married Mary Ann Johnson."
It should read:
"After his discharge from the service, he returned to his home in Punch (Watervale) to farm. In 1864 he married Sara Elizabeth Malone, the daughter of Yancy and Rhoda Malone. To this union were born three children, Marion who married a Russell, Mary Lee who married John Wesley Word and James Neely 'Neal' who married Mary Ann Johnson."
Mary Lee Fisher Word was my great grand mother. James Leonard Word was actually a child of John & Mary Lee Word.
