RE: Marion Burlison cemetery, Barnardsville
Hi Vance,
The location of the Marion Burlison Cemetery is a tall order. I was accompanied by a local resident of the area who has looked after the cemetery, and he too was looking for landmarks and directional guidance as well. We chopped and hacked our way through waves and waves of briers that were larger than the circumference of your thumb and even though I had leather gloves and a machete, I came out bleeding from both hands and most of my fingers. We had to obtain permission to even go onto the land adjacent to the mountain where the graves are located. I was warned by my friend not to come up there without contacting the land owner's and securing permission, due to the likelihood of being shot, and they do keep firearms quite handy.
I don't have any good news for you here, but if I can contact my old friend again, I might be able to get him to accompany you there, but I don't know when that might be.

RE: Slade cemetery
Mr pollock

I want you to know I have not forgot about the Slade cemetery. I am waiting for cooler weather and brush to die off to get further in the woods. Do you know who owns that property or the farm(s) behind it? i wouldnt mind doing some trimming in the brush but would like to ask first if possible.

RE: Slade Cemetery
Hey I just wanted to let you know I went back by there today and searched but came up empty handed. I move some small rocks on the ground around thinking maybe it was covered up but didnt find anything. I did get a pic of a headstone (or marker) outside the fence but it was impossible to read. It had alot on it so i dont think it was a headstone. Probably something about the history of the area or something. I will upload what I got,and if you send me your email,I will forward them to you as well.

RE: Howard Candler
This area where he was laid to rest is a lovely spot, however many of the stones are sinking and I fear will be lost in this section..It's is a very large rolling hillside but, this is near the bottom..I have tried to make as many photos as I can...I have over 3000 photos not posted,just not enough time.

Glad I could help.

Thank you for pointing that out. You are absolutely correct, they tried to correct their spelling. I have made the change for you.

I was not sure if you would be interested in this or not but did find where MJ took a photo of her stone. It is a bit strange that John F. and the children all seem to be buried at Yellow Mountain, but I did find another child (Bonnie Nevada McKinney) of Jane and John's that may have been buried in the Greene Cemetery as well, although Bonnie's is likely one of the stones that time has wiped away from the cemetery.
Just ran across this and thought I would share.

RE: Mary Jane Burleson Calloway
Glad you figured out how to delete those flowers. I have used that option quite a few times in the past.
As for that memorial, I noticed that it had been deleted. I will make one in the correct cemetery soon. She did have more than two years to research her interment, which I'm assuming she did not follow-up with. On here, if you snooze you lose.

Hi Vance,
Actually you can delete that flower, but you may not be aware of the option to do so. Simply click on the flower with your mouse. The option to delete will pop up. Then you simply click delete.
I sometimes notify other contributors where to move their incorrect burials, but if they have parked them for a long time...years, I usually create a correct memorial.
As of this time, I haven't researched Claude.
