Bio and Links
Bio Photo I like doing my families genealogy work and also like learning as much as I can about early ancestors graves and locations. Finding, documenting, cleaning, fixing, and restoring grave markers is extremely rewarding and important to me.
I am especially interested in the military services of any relative throughout our country`s past. I am an amature historian and collectibles dealer who also likes to reenact different periods of mainly military history.
My mother`s side came from England mostly through Virginia, Kentucky, and into Missouri starting in the 17th century. They settled in Howard county in the early 1800`s and eventually spread all over the country like many families. The family has recently fixed and restored the old Snoddy/Garner Homestead Cem. outside Armstrong, Mo. on the Willard Sanders farm. We hope to be able to keep it up for a time. Its on to others now as many of you understand. We are currently working on the Mason/Mott Cemetery west of Roanoke, Missouri.
My father`s side came from England and France mostly in the 17th century, as well, and first settled in Virginia and South Carolina. Many of his people eventually migrated to North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and then northwest Florida. My 3rd great grandmother on my father`s side was believed to be a 100% Coweta Muscogee(Creek)Indian woman. I am lucky enough to have a copy of an 1881 1/6 tint-type likeness of her and others a few years before she died.
I wish to share any information with folks I can and hope to learn new things from others as well.
I mainly only track relatives but I hope to have a few friends memorials eventually.
If you find any mistakes or discrepancies please don`t hesitate to bring them to my attention. Nobody is perfect. Please remember that many, many, mistakes are made in record keeping. Although human beings do the best they can it is inevitable that these mistakes occur for many reasons. In my searches I see wrong dates, numerous name spelling errors, wrong place names etc., etc.. When listing folks I try to make a determination based on various information and sources and even mention these problems when appropriate. Most all my listed memorials are a work in progress. Many will be corrected and updated as new information is available. Please help if you can. I want things and my posted information as accurate as it can be. For the record! No problems!

RE: Cathrine Williams Roper
Hi Eli! Good to hear from you. I have been following your plans for the ceremony and am amazed at the job you are doing. I really respect your effort. Hoping to make it.
I can't help you any with the Allen Cemetery. The only information I have is what is on the cemetery page. Take care & Happy Spring!

Josiah Bass Sr and Mary A Lee
Hi Eli, Josiah and Mary are my Great Great Grandparents. Nathan Bass was my Great Grandfather. Do you have any info for Mary, like parents? I have come to a dead end on her. Also, I have had a lot of confusion on Andrew Bass and trying to determine who his ancestors were. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Congressman John Johns Trigg
Please update the bio for my ancestor through my mom John Johns Tripp. It needs to mention that he was an elected Judge/Justice of the Peace and a three time elected U.S. Congressman.

Ira Griffin Chandler
Hi Eli, I am related through the son of Richard Chandler, Major Lewis Chandler. I'm tring to figure out Ira Griffin Chandler. Is he Richard's son, or Park Chandler's son. There is a find a Grave record showing he is Richard's son, and one that you did saying that Park Chandler had a son named Ira Griffin. I heard through the grape vine that you are very helpful and was wondering if you knew.

So Welcome!
Those soldiers have become a labor of love. Started w/ my gggrandfther's grave...and then I realized there were a few handfuls of soldiers who had been overlooked as well. I hope they all find their families. :)
Amazing side note...I noted your last name...looked at your memorials and what do ya know? We are related! My tree is full of distant Chandlers. I descend from Charity Parks Chandler through Frances Parks Chandler/Jesse Jenkins!
And on another line Sarah Chandler/John Boring.
How weird is that? If you are on AncestryDNA you are probably in my Charity Parks Chandler circle! Too funny! Have a great week.
Blessings and Big Hugs!

I saw that I duplicated John Tew. I will delete mine.
I just wanted you to know, I have done extensive research on the 20+ men who died while at the USMPH (formerly the Knoxville Jail).
John is not buried at Bethel (Rebel Cemetery). They were not burying there until March of 1864 for Soldiers. The soldiers who died in Dec/Jan, who were NOT battlefield deaths but in custody, too sick to transfer to Camp Chase and earmarked with the Provost are buried in an area between Old Gray and the New National Cemetery. They are on Old Gray property.
Middlebrook was for battlefield deaths and too far out of the city for deaths at the "jail".
After years of research I am certain of the area and the particular soldiers. I have seen my documents circulating around and is available to researchers through McClung (at least it was last year).
Just waiting for Old Gray to step up!
Happy to see John Tew was remembered, that is my intent!!!...he just isn't at Bethel.
