As a follow-up to my earlier edit on Alfred's Civil War service, in an ironic twist of fate the entire 7th Tennessee Cavalry (Union) was captured on 3/24/1864 at Union City TN, by the 7th Tennessee Cavalry (CSA) commanded by Col William Duckworth. Of the 16 officers and 500+ men captured that day, 256 died in prisons at Andersonville, Millen, Savannah, Mobile, Charleston and Florence. An additional 35 died after release from prison. including eight who died on the explosion of the steamboat Sultana. All told, 2 out of 3 men captured at Union City never made it home.

I stand corrected and have changed the spelling.
|Jimmy Morris||RE: Robert B. Maddox|
The correct spelling is Bullington, he was named after his father, Chesley Bullington Maddox.

I am most pleased you found documentation for Archibald Greene's service connections. I will be pleased to attend the dedication of the new marker as quickly as your chapter can get it. Thank You so much.

I hadn't been out to the cemetery in a couple of years. The last time I was there was right after Nashville flooded and the cemetery was really overgrown.
I believe her son was supposed to take care of the headstone but I haven't seen him in awhile either.
Thank you for the photo and I'll see if I can get in touch with her son.

Thank you for the photo you added to Cathy's page. It's been far too long since I checked in here. :(

Thanks for your interest! I think Google's wrong, though. Right here in NYC's Trinity Churchyard, for example, there's the original 1681 gravestone of Richard Churcher, and the New England states abound with gravestones which pre-date Margaret Gutry's by more than 20 years. For example, in the Ancient Burial Ground in nearby New London, CT, not far from the Block Island ferry dock, the original gravestones of Capt. Richard Lord (May 1662), Mary Christophers (July 1676), and Cary Latham (May 1685) can still be seen. Photos of these are on Findagrave as well. It may be that Margaret Gutry's is the oldest surviving stone on Block Island---I'll look into it.

THERE IS SOME DUPLICATION IN THE CHALK HILL CEM. BETWEEN NUMBER 62655774 AND NUMBER 33991462. IT MAY BE CAUSED BY THE NAMES ON THE HEADSTONE FOR 62655774. THE NAME ON THIS HEADSTONE IS LINVILLE JACKSON SARRETT. THE NAME ON 33991462 IS JACKSON LYNDELL SARRETT. BOTH STATE SON OF SAM SARRETT OR S. W. SARRETT AND ELLEN. THE NAME OF JACKSON LYNDELL SARRETT IS THE CORRECT ONE AS RECORDED IN FAMILY PAPERS. HE IS MY WIFE'S STEP BROTHER. MY WIFE'S GRANDFATHER LOST BOTH HIS FIRST WIFE AND 7 MONTHS OLD SON IN BENTON COUNTY, TN WITHIN WITHIN A WEEK OF EACH OTHER DUE TO AN INFECTION.THE FAMILY STORY IS THAT HE WAS SO DISROUGHT THAT HE MAY HAVE DUPLICATED BURIAL SITES AND EVEN MIXED UP TWO SITES ONE NAMED LINVILE JACKSON SARRETT AND THE OTHER JACKSON LYNDELL SARRETT. NO OTHER EXPLANATION WAS EVER GIVEN IN HER FAMILY AND HE IS DECEASED. SO IN SPITE OF WHAT A HEADSTONE SAYS IT WOULD SEEM UNLIKELY THERE WOULD BE 2 OF THESE SARRETT CHILDREN. SOMETHING TO PONDER AS IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN IN THE SARRETT FAMILY

I just started learning to search on Find A Grave and located the wife of my uncle, Margaret Lee Oter Norwood 1907-1989 Tennessee. You added the tombstone for Margaret and John Francis Haile. I ask your permission to copy the photo to my Ancestry family tree: Margo Hale Tucker.
Thank you for that photo which confirmed the exact birth/death dates from other research.

I did not know what to do about that. You said remove the link, and Helen had added it also.
