Bio Photo Hello my name is Melissa Clayton Key I am married to Michael Key we live in Henry Co, Tn and have 3 boys Andrew, Alex and Aaron, We also a wonderful granddaughter her name is Serenity Rose We added 2 people to our family this year my nephew Bradley came to live with us and my oldest son Andrew got married to Samantha Ann Carver, I love doing Family Research I have been doing it for 20 years and have ties all over West TN if you need help let me know. If you have things to add or correct anything, please let me know and I'll do it asap. Please contact me if I have memorials that you want transferred I will be glad to do if they are DIRECTLY RELATED to you (PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, and BROTHERS and SISTERS)PLEASE do not ask for me to transfer whole cemeteries to you, I am happy to add information.When my memorials are entered first please do not ask me to delete them if you have pictures to add, add them to the one that is already there please.Please don't DOUBLE memorials in Cemeteries it makes it confusing for some people if I entered them in F.A.G. first I will ask Find A Grave to merge the duplicates, so please ask for help. I work real hard on Find A Grave entering names and pictures. If I make the mistake I will gladly delete mine, The most of the people I do enter are related to me or my husband, Thank You for looking and have fun with your research I know I do.F A GBecause so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, you should search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial.

Cooper Cem on Puryear Country Club Rd.
Today my husband and I photographed the 8 markers in this cemetery (7 did not have markers) and posted them. You will find several edits for dates that need to be corrected based on the markers plus I sent transcriptions for all 8 markers as well. Please go to your edits and accept these. Thanks so much. They are for Bradley, Neely and Cooper surnames.

Curious about his wife, Catherine (Middleton)Spence ... one source ( has her buried in Rushing Creek Cemetery in Stewart Co., TN ... (1) is she buried with her husband?

Thanks for any help.

Robert Howard Mitchell
I am Jane Pope, wife of a cousin of Howard Mitchell. This Howard Mitchell you have given info on is Elbert Howard (Mush) Mitchell. 1923- what ever the dates are. He was married to Dorothy (Stafford). I had not noticed until this morning when working on my Ancestry and Family tree. If you can please remove the Robert and replace with Elbert. I really enjoy the work you have done and go to Find a grave very often for info.

Thank you, Jane

James Harrison Waltrip
Thank you for all you do! Was wondering if the James H. Waltrip buried in Stansfield Cemetery is James Harrison Waltrip? If so, I have further information on his descendants:

His son, James Olsie Waltrip, is buried in the Garden of Memories Cemetery in Sikeston, MO., along with several of his grandchildren and a few great-grandchildren.

Grandchildren: William Harrison Waltrip (Sr.), Emily Lou Waltrip Presley, Laura Dean Waltrip Presley

Great-grandchildren: Lanny Dale Presley, Jerry Arlin Presley, Judy (?) Ford

James Harrison Waltrip's wife remarried and relocated-- I believe her last name was Dye. She is buried beside her 2nd husband outside of Sikeston, MO.

Another grandchild, Gwen (last name unknown), died during young adulthood and is buried in an unmarked grave in Carpenters Cemetery outside of Sikeston, MO., as well. She was married and had two children, J.D. and Wanda, who are also deceased.

Hope this is helpful and thank you again!

Joseph Good
Hi Melissa. I have been trying to sort out my husbands' genealogy & get it straight/right. I'm a bit confused by the picture of the gravestone on Joseph Goods' memorial # 61211016. It looks like there are 2 names, and 2 sets of dates on that stone. According to what I've found on, Michael Alexander Good, and his wife had abt. 10 children in Tenn. They had a son named James Franklin Good or Goode (1877-1945), and a son named Joseph William Good or Goode (1867-1947). The dates I have don't seem to match the ones on the grave stone. Either I made a mistake, or someone else did. Maybe the original transcriber made a misprint. Most of this family lived in the Johnson City, TN. area, in the Washington, and Greene counties, so I feel like I've found them. Would you happen to know of a way that I could call the cemetery, and maybe see what they have on file/in their records, so I can make sure I have the right Goods. If you know of any other way to help me with this please let me know.
Thank you so much.
