Bio and Links
I am researching the Wingo, Reeves, Pryor, Wilkerson and Watson families among others. At present I am primarily concentrating on the ancestry of William Reeves of Wake County NC who died in Madison County KY in 1821. Also the ancestry of Jonathan Pryor of Graves County KY and Wyatt Wilkerson of Prince George County VA.

Thomas Jefferson Grace #39598979
Hello Beverly, Let me first thank you for establishing this memorial. It has helped a lot with our family research. I would like to mention that his date of death is 1899 rather than 1889. A gentleman doing research in Kentucky found a newspaper article referring to Tom Jefferson after 1889. This motivated us to take a close look at the gravestone, and we believe the date is 1899 for sure. We would appreciate it if you would make that change to his date of death in his Memorial.
Thanks again for all you do! Ruthann Grace

I added all of those pics to Pryor Cem not to Jonathan Pryor Family Cem that I never heard of. Even my 3 pics of the cem were removed. Not very happy about whoever did this. Thanks for telling me. Maybe someone had it combined.

Greer & Old Wingo Cemeteries
Thank you for getting back to me so soon with your response. I, too, have noticed there is a listing for Greer Cemetery and Old Wingo Cemetery, and I have requested those two cemeteries to be combine. Hopefully I contacted the correct individuals. I will not add any information I find on individuals buried in these cemeteries from my research as you requested to Findagrave. My ancestors came from Graves, KY and that is why I try to find accurate information and try to post it for other researchers.
thanks, Shirley :)

Greer aka Old Wingo Cemetery
Beverly: I'm sorry to have upset you and I would certainly abide by your wishes. I am a certificated genealogist and would in no way add information that was not authenticated. My only desire was to provide information for other researchers who might be interested.

Greer aka Old Wingo Cemetery
Beverly: Thank you for getting back to me so soon. I've been working on updating all the cemeteries listed in the Graves Co Cemetery Book 1 and also trying to add information I find on individuals listed in various cemeteries from this book on Findagrave. The information I want to add could be numerous depending on what I find on Ancestry. I'm very careful when I do give information to anyone and I tell them what sources I am using as well. I think I have been a big help to some of the researchers through Findagrave as well as Ancestry through my research. The names listed for Greer Cemetery for Graves Co Cemetery Book 1 are numerous. Can you tell me what names you have so I can compare them to the list I have? The names on this list include the following:
Wingo, Bostick, Massey, Beadles, Chandler, Morgan, Odom, Anderson, Plumlee, Mullins, Perry, Watts, Copland, Myatt, Pitman, Gregory, Wilson, Allison, Hopkins, Thornbrough, Blackburn, White, Frazier, Howard, Berry, and Hatchel. I will be very happy to let you know if any of the names you are looking for is included in this list.
Thanks, Shirley :)

Greer Cemetery vs. Old Wingo Cemetery on Findagrave
Hi. I'm updating the burial listing for Greer aka Old Wingo Cemetery, my source the Graves Co Cemetery Book 1 pgs.130-132, and found two listings on Findagrave - one(1) for Greer Cemetery and the other for Old Wingo Cemetery, which you attached pictures. I'm wondering if both these cemeteries can be combined on Findagrave? They are the same cemetery according to the cemetery sign [photo you attached]. I want to add more information to the individuals who are listed for these cemeteries through my research. I appreciate anything you can do.
Thanks, Shirley :)
