Thank you for getting a photo of this headstone. And thanks for the work you put into these memorials.
|Gay Hobt Morton||Civil War soldiers|
Thanks for your offer of help. I will need all the help with photos that I can get. I have only just begun the work of find soldiers in Hawkins County. And it usually takes about a year to round them all up from the various source documents. I am also a volunteer, so I get reassigned to work up changes in the other 15 counties I have already turned in, as changes become available. So this will take a while. I have made a list of all the soldiers I have found in Hawkins Co on Find A Grave, but at this point I do not know which proof of burial photos need to be taken. I usually turn those in as I complete the paper applications for the registry. So watch for those. Hope this helps

Thank you for the proof of burial photo for this Civil war soldier. It will be added to the registry of Civil War graves at the East Tn History Center. This is a huge project and we appreciate your help.

|Clarence J. DILLION||THANK YOU GUNNING CEMETERY|
It is good to hear from a GILLIAM. We really miss Lilburn "Glenn" GILLIAM who as a driving force behind our annual ROLLER reunions held at the Fairview Community Center each September in memorial of JACOB ROLLER and EVE ZIRKLE.
My grandmother, Ibbie Roller Dillion is buried in Gunning.

I'm guessing someone wrote these entries years later after memory had faded.
1. The Christmas 1898 marriage of George and Sarah is confirmed with records, right?
2. Notice Joe's birthdate originally said October 27, 1899, but a '98' has been drawn over the '99'.
3. The census of Spring 1900 proves Millard was not yet born. He had to have been born March 1901.
4. George's death certificate confirms he died September 1931. But the headstone wasn't purchased until after Sarah died in 1947, so by then the correct year was forgotten and "1930" was etched.
Thanks for sharing!
|Lost Mountaineer||Houser brothers|
Thank you so much. Wow, I have a very hard time believing that's Millard! In the 1947 reunion pic Millard is almost a head taller than Pete and Bob. Unless they are both standing on something here to make them equal height (which they did sometimes for photos back then). Otherwise my guess would be that's Joe Houser, or a cousin or someone. I wish they'd gotten all the brothers in the picture, even the little ones. And I wish one of the sisters had been holding Lucile. Thanks again, that's really interesting!
|Lost Mountaineer||Houser, Andrew (Pete)|
Could you tell me how many of the Houser brothers are in your photograph of Andrew as a young man on ancestry.com? There are at least two shoulders on either side of him, one being Bob Houser. It appears to have been taken the same day/place as the photo of the three sisters, about 1920. If you have the complete photo could you post it? Thanks.
