Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County on March 28, 1929 to Emanuel and Carrie Allison Ponter. Upon graduation from high school at Eva I moved to Nashville, TN to attend business school. I married John Raymond Setters on June 18, 1948. In 1950 we moved to Memphis where our son, John Emanuel, was born on November 7, 1956. In 1964 we returned to the Nashville area and live in Whites Creek, 12 miles north of Nashville. We are both retired. In 1992 I published a book on my family and the communities of Greasy Cove, Lawrence Cove and Rock Creek as well as including graduates of Eva High School. The name of the book is "Traces in the Sand" and can be found in the Decatur and Hartselle libraries.I do genealogy and enjoy recording burial information.

The mother's name on Susan's memorial has been changed per your request. For a long time I have been trying to make sure that everyone on my tree should have a memorial, no matter how distant of a relative they are.
I try to be as accurate as possible, but I do make mistakes. Thank you for pointing this one out, so I could make it right.

Key Cemetery
I had talked to Atha a few years back at the Key cemetery and she told me Donald was related to the Keys, but I can't remember how, can you help me. Daddy's grandmother was Mary Alice Key Thompson. Aunt Mildred called me today and ask me about Atha being buried at Key instead of Rock Creek or Oden Ridge. I told her about seeing Atha several years ago but really can't remember who was related to the Key family. Have a great rest of the evening.

Vickey, I had already input Laura into Find A Grave. Do you want me to delete mine?

I did make the change. In the future for any edits please use the edit tab. There is one for name change. Makes it a lot easier to go right to the memorial and not have to look for it. If you have a need to explain the edit request you can send a SAC. A members page is not for sending corrections.

Hi, my name is Roxanne Jordan. I am the Granddaughter of Jo Ann Simmons and Elzie Ervin Ewing. My Grandmother's 1st cousin 2 x's removed was Nettie R. Ryan 1892.

Deskie Frost
Yes I saw the picture that Dianne put on facebook, but she did remarry and lived in Gadsden but we're not sure what her last name was when she died. I took Mother to see her and Danese a few years before Mother died, but I can't remember her last name when she remarried. I sent the picture to Aunt Mildred and she is so happy to get them. Also we were wondering is Danese last name was Richards or if she remarried also. She came to Mother's funeral but I just can't remember.

Vickey, need another favor, I'm talking to Aunt Mildred and told her about the picture of Ms Deskie. We've been trying to figure out what her last name was when she died, thought you might know. Would appreciate your help.

Vickie you are right about Aunt Mildred, she's a wonderful person and my second Mom. Everybody thinks I'm her daughter because we look so much alike. By the way when Mama and Daddy lived above the store in Eva, the baby was me, Charles wasn't born until we lived next to Bessie Cobb in 1950, I was 4 years older than Charles. I really have enjoyed reading the 3 communities and all you have put on Facebook. I know who to ask about things if Aunt Mildred or Uncle Junior can't give me the answer. Have a good evening.
