I've always loved hunting thru graveyards, even as a child I could be found exploring and reading the stones. I participate in many memorial services as a "Black Rose" (mourner) with the TN Society Order of Confederate Rose. Tho' I don't know but few of the names I list I believe everyone should be remembered, their lives are full of stories we'll never know, most leaving just a rock to speak their existence. I live in middle Tennessee, we have many small family graveyards here. As a genealogist I have found clues and info on FAG I've not found elsewhere. FAG has many errors and I'm more than willing to correct any that I may have on my memorials. Also I am NOT into the numbers games I believe information belongs to us all, ask NICELY I will transfer to you. I am genealogist at the Smith County, TN, library - if anyone needs any look-ups done out this way, email me, message here, or call the library T-TH, 615-735-1326.|

|Angela Whiting||RE: Robert Bruce Battersby|
As I understand it, yes. They are in Sulfur Springs, AR. It's the next town up the road from Gravette, right up to the Missouri state line. They have a web site that shows they grow things organically and sell at some places. Sulfur Springs was founded based on the springs there. Like several Arkansas towns, they grew based on the healing effects of the springs at in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Shiloh group is still there, but I can't remember when they moved there. I think there's more information about their group online than I know; we're fairly new to the area.
|Angela Whiting||RE: Robert Bruce Battersby|
You are quite welcome. His stone is actually flat, with a reference to Shiloh on it. The large upright Shiloh stone overlooks a section where all the people with the Shiloh group have been able to be interred together. I was told that the group went to the cemetery people and chose and reserved a section for all their members. All the members have a stone with the Shiloh symbol and verse on it. It's in a peaceful area of the cemetery, surrounded on two sides with nice trees and away from the road.

Thanks for the picture!

Can you post directions to get to this cemetery? I'm coming from Nashville and am somewhat familiar with the roads in the RBS area. Thanks!
|robert gibbs||Thank you|
For all the obituaries your found for me
|Joe A. Jamison||Enoch Fisher, Denton-Manning Cemetery|
The information recorded is a bit off in regard to Enoch Fisher's marriage to Elizabeth Malone:
"After his discharge from the service, he returned to his home in Punch (Watervale) to farm. In 1864 he married Elizabeth Malone, the daughter of Yancy and Rhoda Malone. To this union were born two children, Mary Lee who married Leonard Word and James Neal "Jim" who married Mary Ann Johnson."
It should read:
"After his discharge from the service, he returned to his home in Punch (Watervale) to farm. In 1864 he married Sara Elizabeth Malone, the daughter of Yancy and Rhoda Malone. To this union were born three children, Marion who married a Russell, Mary Lee who married John Wesley Word and James Neely 'Neal' who married Mary Ann Johnson."
Mary Lee Fisher Word was my great grand mother. James Leonard Word was actually a child of John & Mary Lee Word.
I will sure stop by and see you!
Have a nice holiday.

Miss Dixon. Thank you so much for the excellent directions. The three times I have been back I never went past Sam Flatt Cemetery where my Grandfather and my Great Uncles, Great Grandparents are buried. I can't believe I was so close! Well next time. We are coming back next year and hopefully move to Cookeville in less than two years. Yes YOU ARE SO RIGHT !!!!!!!!! Lots of wrong information going around about the Flatt's. I have been doing genealogy on the family for forty years..but started earlier when 12 and I started to ask Grandma Sarah Flatt about who was her parents, etc. So I still have my paper chart I did. I spend more time telling people this is "not correct information." They are disappointed when I tell them we have no indian ancestry on our side of the family. Flatt does not come from Van der Vielts....DNA proved that. But I did intense research on the subject by looking at hours worth of microfilm and told Deb Flatt what I found, so when she did the DNA project...guess what..I was correct. Then I told her, see I told you so. Most people just don't want to do the research but want to grab info and claim the prize. I tell people even census can be wrong with spelling the names, dates of birth, etc...you have to look at several census and other information...look at court records, land records, war records.....well you know. I was at the Smith County Library on my second visit, been to Putnam and Overton libraries....and done all my microfilm work at the Genealogy library in Austin, Texas (which is huge). By the way my Great Grandmother is Lucretia Jane Jackson Flatt and the tombstone has her wrong birth date on it...hard to convince people until I show them the census records she had been around "before she was born". But you see this too. I just got in touch with some second cousins and they have lots of wrong info and I asked did you get this from either of the following two people, yes they said...I said toss it out. Well I can go on and on about this. My cousin Reba lives in Sparta and she is the niece of Lester Flatt. Between the both of us we get inquires saying they are related to Lester through their son or daughter.......so we have to break the news...Lester and Gladys had no children. Well again thanks for the directions I was like driving in the car when you were telling me. So we are way off Cuzn's......good ! Susie

Thank you for giving honor to those who fought in the Civil War. Can you tell me where John Madison Flatt cemetery is in Nameless? I missed this cemetery on my last visit to Jackson County. I do the genealogy for my family Flatt and Woodall side. I just found out that John Madison Flatt (many great grandpas) was a POW in a Yankee prison. I saw Benjamin Fox's name too...also related.
Can you let me know about the cemetery?
Thanks Miss Dixon.
