RE: Melvin Lee Osbourne

Melvin Lee Osbourne
I visited Westover Cemetery on Wednesday and the office personnel indicated they had no record of this person as listed by the name above. Is there a possibility this person went by another name or the name was listed incorrectly?

I went back again today with the middle name and again no record.

Please advise??

De Ford Family
I realize this doesn't have anything to do with Find A Grave but I have been tracing the De Ford Family for over 50 years and still need help.
Most of my people came from Tennessee, especially the De Fords. Before that , North Carolina. My father, Leland Eldred De Ford was born in Knoxville in 1895 to Absolom W. & Margaret Lucille Garrison De Ford. Absolom's father was Gabriel De Ford, born 1818 in Wake Co North Carolina. I do not know for sure who his parents were.

Do you know of any tie in of your family with the above. If so, please get back to me at

Many thanks for your help. Jay De Ford

I sent an email to you with a pic of the cemetery from google maps. I was afraid it went to you spam folder so I thought I should leave a message here just to give you a heads up.

Thank you -- Tina =)

RE: Grave Photo
I photographed that marker in 2009. I believe it was near the back of the cemetery (to the left of the church if you're facing the church), but I'm not 100% certain. Sorry, I can't remember better but I've visited and photographed many cemeteries since then.

Bethlehem Cemetery
Hi! I'm the one who took your other photo's at Bethlehem Cemetery in Memphis, TN. I will get out there and get the other ones you are requesting but it will probably be next week. It is about to begin snowing here any minute now...and we are suppose to get 6-8 inches and it is VERY COLD! But I will get them next week!
