I got your e-mail regarding Francis Clayton. It had gone to my "spam" box.

I clicked on it and tried to move it to my inbox and somehow it disappeared.

I should have been writing things down or saved it to my flash drive before Itried to move it, but that did not happen.

Would you please re-send it? The first thing I will do is add your e-mail address to my book and also save it to my flash drive.

It was an interesting story. Did you say anything about this guy's parents?

Thank You!

Sounds like we both enjoy retirement and two of the same passions, helping people and learning about the past.

Clayton Lineage
Researching my Clayton family the SC, TN and Mo areas.

Ran across a contact in Texas who had a 3X Great Granddad, Francis Clayton (Abt 1785- ) who was born in NC.

Since this guy is your 4X Great Granddad, I thought I would check with you to find out if you have any information on this person's ancestors?

The photos I added are at the Davidson one,Forbus, Fentress County.I think they are two different cemeteries and just have memoirals mixed up.

RE: Austin Cemetery
Hi there! I have the Overton County Roll Call, but can't find any record in it of Robert P. Austin? Can you give me a page number where it mentions the obituary? My father is Robert M. Austin and he is 84; he wants so desperately to find where his grandfather is buried! I would appreciate any help you can offer.

Austin Cemetery
I notice that you have a grave for Robert Pinkney Austin at this cemetery. Do you have any other information or a photo of a tombstone? He is my great-grandfather and we have never been certain where he was buried.

RE: Tommie Baker
Hi Sharyl,

I just got your message on my Thomas Baker. You advised that he was Robert Kimbroughs son but that is impossible as they were born in the same year. I have searched my rear off for the last several years and I always come to a dead end. The only thing left for me to do is a DNA to find my Bakers.. smiling! Let me know if you have any kind of thoughts or information. Thanks for writing! Debra Gray Guthrie

I happened upon your message to June Draper about Sibbie and Newton.
Sibbie was my Great Grandmother, her son Hoy Lee was my Grandfather.

I wanted to reach out and say hello to a cousin.

Feel free to email me at

My mom is Hoy Lee and Norma Fay's Second daughter.

Hope you have a wonderful evening

Chapel Flat Cemetery
As per your inquiry. It's been awhile since I was there but yes, I think the map of Chapel Hill Cemetery shows the location for the Chapel Flat Cemetery
The cemetery is a little bit off the road in the woods but not far. I don't know if it has grown up or not. When you get close, you might ask someone that lives around there if you have trouble finding it.
I'm probably going over to Muddy Pond sometime in the next few months and I can get better directions then if you don't find it.

Their suggestion:
Hi! Thank you for all you have and are doing on FindaGrave!

I talked with a representative of Speck Funeral Home, and he said that Melbadine was buried in the Emberton Cemetery in Clay County, as the obituary says. Are you familiar with the cemeteries in Clay County? He said that often people mistake assume that the Emberton and the Seiber and the same cemetery. Their records show that her burial was in the Emberton.

I personally walked this Cemetery, when I posted these. There is only one Sign - Seiber. I have heard others buried there are in the Emberton, but no sign of where one begins and ends and likewise the other.

So I cannot tell who is buried in which one, when there is only one sign?
Do you have something that shows she is in the Seiber and not the Emberton?

RE: Thomas and Mary Buck

Sorry for taking so long to reply. I have visited the gravesites in Fentress County and found a nicely maintained grave markers for both Thomas and Mary Range Buck. It was located at Red Hill or Buck Cemetery, also referred to as Poor Cemetery as they are both next to each other, yet separated. The gravestones are not original, so some family member at some time has placed them there. Hopefully on the original site. The graves at Range Cemetery did not have a Marker for Mary Range Buck that I saw. If you will send me your email address to:, I will send you a very nice slide program of all the graves of my ancestors, dating back to Jonathan Buck who is my 6th Great Grandfather. He was married to Zuriah Covalt and we think her grave is on the Eastern Tennessee town of Elizabeth City. I have not made that connection and no one seems to have found her grave that I am aware of. Please send me an email and I will send you what I have. It will be photos of the graves I found in about 7 cemeteries during a trip a few years ago. I was also back again last year stopping at Cookeville where a distant cousin showed me a couple other gravesites of our Buck ancestors. Hope to talk to you soon. David Buck
