Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing research in the 1970's with note pad and pen. Libraries, court houses, newspaper morgues, and graveyards. My bumper sticker reads, "I Brake for Old Graveyards" a genealogy cousin sent it to me.
What a wonderful help the computer has been in keeping track of my information.
Any additions or corrections will be welcomed.
Look for "Poarch's Porch" on Google

RE: Short Cemetery in Giles Co. TN
Yes that is true I was in the Short Cem in Giles Co yesterday and the last burial was in 1891. It is way back in the wilderness with most stone broken. About all of the graves there m are of the Short Family.

All those others are in Marshall Co.s Short Cemetery.

When you add listings if you will look at the over all listing you will see all those old graves which is telling you that you have the wrong cemetery.

Happy Correcting. You can transfer them and not have to delete and redo the entry.

unknown wife of John Porch
Just a thought but have you considered Patsey Follis? You would have to check it out but she was born about the right time and the name of her husband was John Porcher.

Lots of names got changed over the years. Just a suggestion but nothing for sure.

I have put in an edit to link dad's info to hers (Douglas P Jones). I'm just now finding this site and it's wonderful. Thanks for all your hard work.

The stone is not where is it is supposed to be, but I don't know shere it needs to be. I found it about 20 feet away from the cemetery next to a tree. That is what a cowdozer will do for you

You have on your memorial #'s 55878740 & 55878777 they are buried in Old Harmony Cemetery in Jane Lew, WVA. They were actually buried on their property in Hacker's Creek, WVA. Their property is now a Tube making plant. Their grave sites and markers are still there and you can still visit. I just want to make sure everyone has the right information when they try to visit the graves.

There is another listing for both of Christian and Christina with pictures of their grave stones

RE: Wiley Tison
You have been great to work with on this project. I appreciate all your help. We have made the GA memorial a cross-reference to your memorial rather than deleting as a dup. Huxford's works as common reference for many people, and I thought someone might create the another incorrect memorial without the cross-reference. I know this is not a practice by Find A Grave, but I find it useful in cases such as this. As you probably know, some people just post rather than searching for an existing memorial or verifying the info they have. I call these people "name collectors" and not genealogist. A beginner genealogist looks for documentation.

I will remove my flower notes with the exception of the cross-reference stone.

You might add the info to Wiley's bio: Served as Justice of Peace, 518th dist, Irwin, 1839-1842, 1843-1845, and 1855-57. This is from Huxford vol 4 p 310. Huxford was a Judge and his history has proven valid in the past. The greatest errors in his works are family links which resulted in DAR no longer his works as proof for membership.

It has been a pleasure and thanks again,
