Bio and Links
Bio Photo A Middle Tennessean happy to keep an eye out for relatives of others, my hobby is searching for interesting grave shelters in small, rural cemeteries. Gravehouses, shelters, tents, rock tombs and cairns; they're all vanishing quickly, so will take them where I can find them, and appreciate your suggestions. The motherlode of rock tents/combs, the Cumberland Plateau and Highland Rim, are my favorite stomping grounds.

Thanks to all of you who have added photos! I'm willing to fill photo requests in out-of-the-way places, as long as you're not in a hurry. If corrections are needed to memorials I've added, or if you would like additional information, please leave a message here or send email to my address.

You are welcome to use my photos for non-commercial purposes without obtaining my prior permission, as long as their use is within the rules and guidelines of, and provided the ownership source is clearly stated each time.

I'm not directly related to many people for whom I've created memorials, so please feel free to ask for a transfer. If I have made a mistake on a memorial, and you can shed light on the subject, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Am always on the lookout for Berry (Hulme, Wiltshire, Vowell, Malone, Jefferson), Carothers (Turner, Potts, Nevins, Jordan, Whitsitt, Menees), Wilkerson (King, Barnes, Dowdy, Goodwin, Buchanan) and Rucker (all of the above, plus Bumpass, Morton, and everyone else in TN, KY, and VA).

It's a delight to be part of the awesome assembly that is Find A Grave!

RE: Family
hi yes my hall bunch are from morgan co i do not know about scott. i have a dna test sitting on my desk to do. i did one but for some reason it didn't turn out so they sent me another. there are a ton of hall's and they seem to name thier kids the same names over and over again, enough to make your eyes cross. if you can find morgan t davidson's research he has a ton of info. and i think the book that ethel freytag and glenna ott wrote about morgan co has some info in it also. love the morgan co in wartburg. i had to laugh when i learned they used the old jail. i think it was my 5th gpa who married rachael hall,his name was john white born 1806. let me know if i can help J

RE: Needa Buck/Meeda Buck
yes i know about that, the lady has contacted me also about andy scroggins being in the wrong cemetery. but he is the right one its john c scroggins. i know this is so because i am helping his cousin with some research from scroggins she knows the cemterty well and he is there. in fact you can pull up his headstone and enlarge it and see the names on the stones behind him. i truly believe that the twins are in john c.scroggins cemt. i didn't know that she had posted in the george scroggins one. she is suppose to be comming to fentress co this spring i think she said to check for herself. she was going by someone else's work. i will keep my site in till it is figured out. thanks J

RE: Lucy Corbitt
Hello Harriet,

I just found an obituary in The Tennessean dated Thursday March 2, 1854 stating:

At the residence of Mr James Corbitt, in this city, (Nashville) on Tuesday night last, of Dropsy, Mrs. Lucy Corbitt. The diseased was a kind mother, an affectionate sister and a sincere friend. She bore her distressing illness with woman's fortitude, and calmly laid down her life resigned to the will of her Creator.

The time period seems to fit well with Capt James Corbett moving from Montgomery Co, to Nashville. Any thoughts?
