Bio and Links
I have always been interested in genealogy and working on our family tree. I presently serve on the Board of Directors for the Triune Cemetery. I am in the process of updating our cemetery records and hopefully will be documentating with a photo of each grave.
I hope my efforts will be of help to someone. Please e-mail me with any corrections.

My family search includes Roberts and McCullars from Lawrence Co, TN, Walker, Winston and Fayette Co., AL.
Goodman and Tucker family search from Rutherford Co. TN.

Odene Rains Biffle
Are you related to or do you know any relatives of Odene Rains Biffle?
Her ancestor John Rains' cemetery was destroyed by a greedy auto shop next door who falsified statements to the judge. They said the cemetery was abandoned with no visitors over the previous year, despite the fact that descendants along with the Davidson County Cemetery Survey Commission and Nashville Historical Society hired an archaeologist who restored the cemetery and was there daily for months preceeding when the auto shop filed the court papers. No prayer service was performed when they were reburied, and headstones that had just been restored were carelessly broken in the move. The family didn't know until we tried to visit it and it was a newly paved parking lot. John Rains was the son of one of the original Nashville Tennessee settlers Captain John Rains.
We need as many descendants as possible to count when filing a complaint against the auto shop for not notifying the family of the court petition or date as well as lying to the judge. Descendants don't have to be formally included on the lawsuit, but I do need their name to pass along to the lawyer who contacted us who volunteered to file the complaint (we need their names so we don't count them twice in our number). We just need names of descendants of John Rains who agree that the cemetery shouldn't have been dug up and destroyed without notifying the family. This doesn't typically happen and it needs to be brought to the court's attention so it won't happen to other small family cemeteries. The bigger the numbers, the better result to get the judge's attention that this decision hastily made based on lies was a poor choice. I can give the lawyer's email address to anyone who would prefer to contact him directly. I don't think the judge is going to be too happy when he finds out he was lied to and tricked. Thank you for your consideration!

RE: Haynes memorials
Betty Anne,
I wouldn't object at all if you delete some of the pictures. I made them with an iPhone to get the GPS location and some of them are pretty bad. My main objective was just to establish memorials if none were existing. Don't hesitate to let me know if I can help.

RE: Haynes memorials
Betty Anne,
I transfered management of my Triune memorials to you. You have access to information that I would never have and can do a much better job of insuring accuracy. May God bless you and thank you for your service to the community.

Are you related to the Haynes family buried in Triune? If you wish I will transfer management to you.

Re: Eliza Jane Lockhart (Ellis)
Thank you, Betty Anne, for all that you do here! It's just wonderful to find this site and information.
On Eliza Jane Lockhart's page, one child is listed. That child is Christopher Ellis.
Noble Ellis and Eliza Jane Lockhart Ellis had a daughter---Katherine L. Ellis. Her name in the records is shown sometimes different ways.
Katherine Leontine Ellis, Kate Ellis, etc.
Their marriage certificate says Leontine C. Ellis!
Confusing---yes, but it is the same person.

Thank you for any edit you can do on Eliza's page to document her daughter, Katherine. Katherine Ellis married Henry C. Alexander. After his death, she married a Franklin Turner.

I am Eliza and Noble Ellis's great great great granddaughter.

Again, thanks for all you do.

I do maintain a family tree on I have an Alexander-Dennison tree which contains these people. I'm listed as the admin.'

Thanks again!

Thank you for your efforts; This marker is for my Sister-in-law from Nashville. I was checking for a photo of the marker before it was damaged. There was a bird sculpture in the opening when the stone was designed and placed. If you need Obituary info I will be glad to help. Tina Page Roberts,
