Bio and Links
I am a native of Nashville TN with deep roots in Williamson, Maury, Marshall and Rutherford counties. I am researching the surnames of Lavender, Smithson, Pratt, Spratt, Sprott, Hartley, Grisgsby, Hargrove, Smith, Thompson, McCord, Coleman, Andrews, Blythe, Bigger, Beasley, Bugg, Epps, Fortune, Giles, Hatcher, Hood, and Poteete on my maternal side. Researching on my paternal side the surnames of Zech, Thomass, Groehl, or Manthgory. The Zech's immigrated to the U.S. from Bromberg, Germany in 1925. I am also interested in any information regarding the Waller surname, specifically in the area of Nolensville, TN on my husband's side.

If you are related (or not) I would love to hear from you. If I can be of assistance in taking photos of your loved-ones final resting place in and around middle TN please reach out to me. There is nothing like making that connection to the past and I am happy to share any information.

RE: Waller and Coleman Surname
I am not sure about the Waller-Byrd Cemetery. I believe the Mt. Olivet cemetery but it may have been associated with the old Mt. Olivet Methodist Church (now known as the Nolensville United Methodist Church). The Waller-Byrd cemetery may be the cemetery that I visited quite a few years ago that is located on Sunrise Rd. in Nolensville. Some of the information on graves listed were from "Directory of Williamson County, Tennessee Burials" Vol. 1 and 2. However, the exact location was not provided. In Vol. 1, the cemetery location is stated as "16th District; Luther Waller Farm, Waller Road. If you cannot locate it from this information , let me know and I'll try to find it. I do know that Luther Waller and his wife lived on Waller Road but he may have more than one farm.

Percy Waller
Good afternoon,
I hope this gets to the correct person. I found the grave sites for Charles and Nell Waller and posted the photos on their Findagrave site. I also found the marker for Percy Waller and have that photo as well. However, when I went to post it it said that there were already 5 photos posted so I couldn't post it unless I wanted to pay $5 for a sponsorship. I don't want to do that, but if someone else does, please let me know and then I'll post the photos...or I can send them along to you if you are interested.
Regards from Franklin, TN

Thank you.
Thanks for leaving a message for Ernest Mack Holt. I don't know how you found his page (I have sent numerous requests to have him added to the Find A Grave tour), but it means a lot to me. He was a truly special person.

RE: Frank Arms
I remember Wilma Jean and Ricky, as well as my Aunt Lillie Mae. My grandfather's name was Frank Arms.
I do not know much about what has happened to my Dad, Paul's family. His sister Dorothy lives close by me. She is the last one still living of Frank & Emma's children. If you have any specific questions, I'd be glad to ask her.
Myself, I would love to know how Ricky & Wilma are doing. Thanks...Paula
