Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working with cemeteries one way or another all my life. When I was a child, I helped my mother and my aunts clean the brass markers on the graves of my grandfather and my uncle and other family members; my maternal grandmother had beautiful flowers all in her yard and we were constantly taking flowers to the graves of relatives and people who were friends of my grandmother (though complete strangers to me) who "had no one else to put flowers on their graves." Later, as a daughter-in-law, I became involved in the Henry County Genealogy Society's cemetery book project when I volunteered to type up listings on the over 425 cemeteries which the group had compiled for publication. I enjoy taking pictures of stones for people who cannot personally get to cemeteries in my area, and I appreciate people who have done the same for me in their area. I have created several memorials in the course of my cemetery work. Some of the memorials are people who are not related to me, so I am always willing to transfer those non-related memorials to people who request them - hopefully allowing more information to be listed than I am able to provide.

RE: Joseph T. Fanning memorial
Hello Mary Ann...the date information that I found for the parents was from ancestry.com. Joseph married into one of my lines & I am not, at this time, going beyond 1C level of collateral lines in research.
Sorry that I am not able to give you any more information on Joseph's parents.

James Glidewell @ Williams Chapel Lone Oak
Greetings,

I walked the entire cemetery today and could not find a marker for James Glidewell. I found a marker for Maggie Glidewell, June 13, 1852 - February 5, 1925. It is inscribed "Wife of J.N. Glidewell."

RE: Elizabeth Morgan McCutchen photo
I am glad to help any way I can. There is NO marker at her grave, just the headstone.

When you enter the main entrance, bear to the left and go back to where you see the pet cemetery( it will be fenced in and on your left). At this bend in the main drive the grave will be about 100 feet to your right. Look for a very large headstone with "The Family of Eugene L. Morgan" on it and her stone will be in front(facing you) along with two other headstones, all in a row. When you are standing in front of the large stone you will be facing toward Ridgecrest Road and the main entrance(North).

If you need further assistance, let me know.

Thank you for the photograph of the tombstone of Nathan Williams in Henry Co., TN. I don't know how you managed to make it legible - but I really appreciate it. I am working on this line for a friend. Jane Debenport

RE: Frances Blakemore memorial
Her listing of William S. Blakemore at that cemetery includes a statement, burial location unknown, which I take that she assumed he was there but was not sure.

The lilies to me indicate that someone is buried there. I saw this at a lost cemetery in Louisiana. There is one lost cemetery here where I found a good number of headstone beneath an inch of dirt and cow manure. I get the poison ivy here and have to remind myself the poison ivy oil is in the leaf litter under the affected tree. Hate the briars too. I use flour for old inscriptions. Can't wait to see what lost souls you bring back to life.
Thanks and good luck!!
