Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy on my family lines for over 30 years and also helping friends find their roots. After living in Maryland for the past 30 years I moved to Morristown, TN, near the end of 2007. I just love it here and I'm having a great time visiting all the cemeteries and providing tombstone photos for all my new "friends".

If I fullfill a photo request for you, you may want to check for other people with that surname in the cemetery. When I have time I try to photograph any tombstones that are nearby that may be related.

I would be glad to transfer any memorials that I have created that are not in my direct line. Please feel free to copy any photos I've posted for use in your ancestry files.

RE: Kite/Haynes murders - Kite Cemetery, Hawkins Co., TN
The problem is that they are not actually buried in Kite Cemetery in Persia. They are buried in Tunnel Hill Cemetery on Webster Valley Rd. ☺️ I, like you, searched Kite Cemetery from one end to the other, then one day I was riding around with a friend and we ran across Tunnel Hill Cemetery and decided to look around. It was a complete accident that I even found them. I know I meant to send the person over their memorial a message to have it fixed but I might have forgotten. Honestly it's been so long since I took the pic that I'm not sure if I messaged them or not. Hope this helps. If you want to message the person over their page and let them know it's a mistake feel free.

Kyle Cemetery
Thank you for taking the time do take pictures at the Kyle Cemetery. I am heading to Hawkins County TN next week and would like to pay my respects to these relatives. It seems like this cemetery is in a farm field. Do you know if there is a way for anyone to go to these graves?
Thanks, Penny Dalbow

Warham Easley
This is not the Warham Easley that was married to Nancy Moss. Yes, the daughter is correct. The Warham Easley that married Nancy Moss was born November 21, 1789 in Surry, North Carolina, United States and Died November 23, 1852 in Blount Co., AL. It appears that the two Warham's have been confused. They even have different parents.

Church - Bent Creek Cemetery, Hamblen Co., TN
By chance do u think it may just not have a headstone? I don't know how many cemeteries actually have a list of who is buried their or even their plots. (Radville Saskatchewan has these both listed for public viewing which is super convenient! Who is buried on a list via last name, and an idea of where everyone is buried via a cemetery map)

Hi, how are you doing.? Hope all is well with you and yours. I am writing because I want to ask you if possibly you would be willing to transfer Essie Mae & William Goble Hipshers memorials to me so I could maintain it and add alot of stuff to it like pictures and stories of them. If you could do this for me I would be forever indebted to you. Thank you so very much.

I'm not sure what happened but the email informing me you had filled my request for Franks marker photo was archived and I just found it so I'm sorry for the delay in thanking you, I appreciate your time and kindness!

Pierce Purkey
I don't have enough info to relate Pierce Purkey as same person as Johnny J Purkey. My source was from another person's family tree and the fact someone else had already posted him for the cemetery on Find A Grave. Thanks for your effort to locate him.
