Willis Pippin Cemetery later known as Bolivar Pippin Cemetery
Imagal suggested contacting you to see if you might have any information on Boliver Pippin Cemetery located in Putnam County, Tennessee, on the Dyer Long Road which runs between the Old Gainesboro Road and Pippin Road. The cemetery was originally the Willis Pippin Family Cemetery.

To my knowledge from John Pippen: A New Beginning in Maryland, some included in the cemetery are:
Willis and Mildred "Millie" (Woodfork) Pippin and some their children:

Mahulda Pippin m. Ishom Meadows (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)

James Willis "Nig" Pippin m. 1. Alice Barnes 2. Nancy Mariah Jane Dyer (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)

Willis Woodfork Pippin m. Lanora "Nora" Finn (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)

Joseph Craven "Kidd" Pippin m. Alice Mae Pippin (buried in Bolivar Pippin Cemetery)

Bolivar Pippin (died in infancy who may have been the first grave in the Boliver Pippin Cemetery)

Appreciate any insight you might be able to give on this.

Thanks so much for your help with the Stephens family memorials. As soon as you find out for sure which cemetery is the right one please let me know. I noticed that Cosby's was posted in 2010, so it is most likely right.

Thank you very much for pointing out the spelling error on Mr. McCracken.
If you have a relation to this or his wife's memorial, I stand by to transfer at your request.

William Allison Hill
Greetings, since you have listed Wm. A. Hill as your 2nd great paternal grandfather, I could use your help as I'm researching this Hill family in Overton County. I'm wanting to know how you know that Wm. A. Hill and Michael C. Hill are cousins and how Wm. A. Hill is a son of Sarah Hill, daughter of Thomas Hill, Sr. I have three different places where Wm. A. Hill could fit in the lineage based on findagrave and census records.

I have a great deal of research [I've been at it for 41 years] on the Hill families and the Overton Hills are especially important in my line. Could we converse by regular email? I'm at and would love to chat.
Thanks, Jerry McDowell

RE: another note on Jerry Nicholas
Changed the memorial to read like the tombstone and made a new note. It seems from the census data that a birthdate after 1850 makes more sense. As it appears Jerry's father was still in the household of his parents in 1850.
Take a look and see if it makes sense to you.
Thanks for the update ....much appreciated.

another note on Jerry Nicholas
death certificate lists same birth month and day, but has birth year as 1848. Which does differ from the tombstone birth year.
Census records vary from 1849 to 1851.

I am really not sure. But his death certificate, which can be found on
Tennessee Death Records, 1908-1958 lists his parents as Joe Nicholas and Sarah Huddleson.
If you have you can view the original death certificate.
If not you can e-mail me and I will send it to you.
Could be a case of incorrect info in either the cemetery book or on the death cert?
But yes....the death cert lists A. as his middle initial.

George Washington Hill, Sr.
I am researching the Hill families in Overton and Pickett County, TN. George Washington Hill is NOT the son of George Robert Hill. There is a deed in Overton County, deed book D, page 379-380 from William Hill to his son George W. Hill on Nov. 1836. On that same day William deeded land to his son William S. Hill. When William Hill died in July 1849, George W. Hill and his son William B. Hill were the two executors. This is William Hill who married Elizabeth Cope in Wake County, NC. Feel free to contact me at
Thanks, Jerry McDowell

Bethel Frederick "Freddie" Blanchard, III
They did have him cremated and yes his friend made his urn....they are planning to scatter some of his ashes on the family farm. At the time I made the memorial, they had not made a decision so thank you for taking care of reminding me to update. Sorry I can't make corrections daily as I am taking care of elderly parents.

Hill Families in Overton
I have been researching Hill families for over 41 years. I'm currently working on the William Hill and Elizabeth Copy and Thomas Hill and Sibbie Cope families and their descendants. It appears from your postings that you are a descendant. Can you give me some help please. Contact me at
Jerry McDowell

PS - I'm trying to find a male Hill descendant to do a DNA test for and use DNA to support my research and resolve a long-standing issue regarding the Hill/Cope families and the Hill ancestors.

It's Richared Pierce's book, "Gone, But note q. Forgotten". Purchased from him in '09 when he took us to 2 cem's we're seeking. Why don't you contact me direct by email address that's on my profile. Easier to "not forget" to only hit "enter" to only SEND.
