Bio and Links
Bio Photo We became interested in the Findagrave site a couple of years ago when I was searching for my grandfather's grave. I knew approximately where he was buried but I had no memory of ever seeing his grave, as he died many years before I was born. We came across Findagrave and I found exactly what I was looking forů and much more! Since that time, graving has become a hobby for both of us.

This is a great website and a great way to preserve (and learn about) some of our family history! My wife has a passion for the older tombstones that seem to be forgotten. This interest was sparked by her grandmother and the many walks and conversations that the two of them had in the old cemeteries in Northwestern Tennessee where many ancestors were buried. The search still continues for a great-grandmother, LuLu (Lou?) Mefford Pettit who died in Clermont Co. Ohio about 1906. Her approximate age was 32 years.

We are certainly glad to share, add, or correct any family information that we have posted on this website. It is our hope that this website will continue to grow and provide historical family information for all... information which might not be otherwise available.

Thank you for the information you entered for my maternal grandmother, Josie Rebecca Brann Smith from Palmersville, TN. Their daughter, Elnora Smith Stewart was my mother. She is buried in Spring Hill Cemetery in Nashville, TN. A link to her page there would be very nice. Also, sometimes, in some of the information here and in my Grandfather's page (Philemon Andrew Smith, 38453708,) as well, my aunt Willie B. Smith Griffith is not included. Her date of birth was 3-2-1914 and her date of death was Jan. 1988. Not sure of the day.
I'm also interested in how you came to know about my grandparents. I have photos of them that I would be happy to send for inclusion in their entries. Let me know what I can do. I'd like to let my cousins know about the website, but I'd hate for the Griffith cousins to see that their mother didn't get her name in lists on her parents' pages.

Free Military Headstone

It states on the website that all you have to do is contact the cemetery to order a free military headstone. He deserves it after all those years in the Navy! Thanks for listening!

If Mr. Deshler is your friend or family member you may want to contact the Navy. If I am not mistaken, he qualifies for a free head stone. I believe his wife does also. Both of them do not have headstones.

I took the photo of their graves years ago. Have a great day!

Thomas Brundige

Thomas is the brother to my ancestor, William Brundidge (spelled many ways!). Their mother, Margaret McGinnis Brundidge has a
findagrave memorial page: 14265905.

Would you mind linking him to his mother? I have yet to find a page for their father--Stephen. And I don't yet have a page for my ancestor William.

But it sure helps to link family members together when researching. Thank you SO MUCH for all the work you do to help everyone. It is truly a blessing.

Hello. I was out at Valley View Cemetery getting a pic very close to this stone and noticed that the dates on his memorial were unknown, so I went ahead and took a pic so his memorial can be updated.

Very impressed and would take the opportunity to say thanks for your efforts on the Brundige family. We have been working on the family to help our cousins by marriage. Respectfully request use of the photographs in the memorials to document the efforts on Ancestry and a book that we are compiling for future generations. Respectfully, Larry and Carole Morrison - Maumelle, Arkansas.

Would you happen to know if Colman Brann buried in New Hope Methodist Church Cemetery was a member of the 6th Tennessee Infantry, Civil War?

RE: T.B. Howard
Thank you. That would be wonderful to share information. My email address is My mother's cousin, Royce Howard, has been doing genealogy on the Howard family for more years than I have, so you may have corresponded with him as well. I look forward to hearing from you.

T.B. Howard
Below is some information for the bio of Thomas B. Howard. He was a brother to my g-g-grandfather, James Richard Howard. I don't know anything about his life other than what I have been able to glean from my genealogy searches.

If you are family, I would like to know more about him. Thanks.

My line of descendancy is James Richard to his son, William Amos, to his son, Casey Lois, to his daughter, Nannie Oleta Howard Stewart.
