Bio and Links
Bio Photo It is about time I enter my bio information, I've been on this site for many years and not done that, sorry!
I have tracked my Bicknese line back to the mid 1600's. My main interest here is to connect all Bicknese' and it's working. only 5 branches (now 3, as of Sept 2012, 2 more branches connected) ones that I've not found a common link!
The Rogers family of Ellejoy, Blount Co., Tennessee is another family line, starting with Willoughby Rogers 1757-1828.
My Davis family line is another question. In Blount Co. TN, my Davis line is as far back as I have been able to go. The handed down name of Fieldson Davis is where it stops. There has been a finding of a paper trail to a Richman Davis of the same period. There has been DNA testing done and there is a family in Manchester, Coffee Co., Tennessee that is a match. But I do not have the common link, YET! But I'm working on that.
On my mothers side of the family my interest lie in the Long, Horner, Birkett, Boots, Engle, Manifold, McMullen families, plus many more as the line goes back in time. It does take long to find you have 64 pair of grand parents.
Enjoy your searching and let me know if I can help with yours!

None of your requests have tombstones. I have added a photo of lot D137 which does show Fred Bicknese and some Burkas. D131 I have added an open shot showing no tombstones at all. The ones in the front are on lot D132.

Hi Ron,

I went back to Hampshire Center Cemetery. I found the plot where Todd and Mark are buried. That plot is shown as being N-54 on the boys' memorials. It is also shown as the plot for Kenneth. I posted a photo of the plot on all three memorials. As you can see, unfortunately, there is no marker there for Kenneth as of March 31, 2017. Just to be sure, I walked the entire cemetery twice and checked every marker. There is no marker for Kenneth either at plot N-54 nor anywhere else. Sorry.

RE: Kenneth T. Bicknese photo
I couldn't go today as I had hoped because it has been pouring rain steadily since last night. There are memorials for the two sons and photos of the stones are on the memorials. But the photos could be better so I will certainly photograph them too. If the markers are not in the section indicated I will figure out at least what section they ARE in. I'll leave another message when I've posted the photos.

I searched the entire section indicated in the memorial and in your request but found only a bare patch of grass. I'm sure I had the correct location as I have a cemetery plot map. However, when I got home I saw that there are stones for Kenneth's two sons and the location of their graves appears to be the same as Kenneth's. So, there should be some markers for this family. Perhaps the location is incorrect in the memorials. To solve this "mystery" I will return to that cemetery some time next week and search the entire cemetery until I find the markers.

Best wishes,
Jim Bellert

RE: Joy (Bicknese) Erdman
It's nice to put a face to a memorial. She was a pretty lady and looked like a nice person.

RE: Memorial # 139388079
I was able to add the death certificate to the first memorial created by JoAnn Stephens Graham and I deleted the death certificate on your memorial, as requested. Now you are able to delete the memorial you created, as you mentioned. Your picture of the headstone is just beautiful. Nice touch adding the shade of the tree and some foliage. Just beautiful.
