The cemetery is in very poor condition. It has become a dumping ground.
I photographed all the stones I could see. The writing is gone from some. Some are broken or overturned. I want to get back and look again. However, I am laid up with a broken foot presently.

John Martin
Yes the info I put on find a grave is correct no the Martins were not Cherokee . John was a Presbyterian preacher who preached to the Cherokee and the soildiers at fort loudon the picture on the site is a picture of the actual beads that we're giving to him from the Cherokee chief , Pat Meguiar also our cousin is the historian of Sumner co Tn owned these beads and gave them to a museum in Knoxville Tn they were passed down to him. You are also a cousin to the outlaw Jessie James if you will look on find a grave Sarah Hines Martin had a sister named Mary Hines sage married William James they had a son John Martin James his son was Robert Sallie James his sons Were Jessie and Frank James

RE: James Sears
Hi Susan, there are more than one Sears cemetery here in Whitley County, KY & I've been told by a long time Sears researcher cousin of mine "Pati Sears Burnett" that some of the Sears graves here have not ever been documented as there was a story from many years ago about a farmer that was plowing his field, he got thirsty & when he jumped off his tractor to go get a drink of water instead of hitting the ground, he went thru the ground and ended up knee deep in a grave that nobody knew was even there & to my knowledge nobody knows exactly who all was buried there.

There are two Sears cemeteries located on this one farm that has Anna Meeks and James Sears on it, I didn't see Anna's stone that was once there that had her name on it but the tent grave is still there, I have a current pic of it on Anna's memorial page, also there were several plain field stones around the James/Anna tent type grave that appeared to be old & probably never had any names or dates on them.

The main reason that I decided to go get pictures and/or video was because I had noticed that there had been members who had added info that didn't match the data that the library and genealogy society has listed here in town so I went to visit the current land owner of the Sears farm, I showed him proof that I was a Sears descendant(Anna Meeks & James Sears are my 4th great grandparents & I have did a DNA test thru so I would have proof).

The landowner showed me both cemeteries on the old farm, they are both within walking distance of each other on the property but with some of the land still being used as a farm we used a 4-wheeler to go to both cemeteries.
One cemetery, the one that has Elizabeth Wheeler Sears in it is close to the road and so the landowner is going to fix it so that cemetery is accessible to the public though right now it has an electric fence around it & the cemetery that has James & Anna in it probably won't be accessible to the public since it is on farther back on the other side of the farm.

I took video with my camcorder while I was there as well that I would be happy to share with you so you can get an idea of the condition is today of both cemeteries in case you ever want to see the graves in person, just let me know and I can email the video that I took while I was there.

Thank you for writing to me Susan, it is always nice to hear from a Sears cousin, have a great day..... ~Denise Rose Waddle~
