My wife, Melba nea Wright, and I began our genealogy quest in 1989 and to this day (odd as it sounds to others) one of most rewarding things to do is visit the grave of our ancestors. |
Now retired, we tend to our family and travel. Even in a foreign country we are drawn to the cemeteries and are rewarded to learn of the many various burial and cemetery practices.

Would you please respond or transfer (46975003 so I can add) info to the memorial:

Most intriguing is the grave of Simmons Owens, unmarked, but present.
Owens may be the reason behind the cemetery's name. Owens was a self-proclaimed professional cattle finder. When farmers or ranchers' cattle would go missing, for a fee, Owens would search and retrieve the cattle. It was later found that Owens himself was found stealing the cattle, then taking people's money when he returned the cattle. As law would have it back then, cattle thieves were hung. Owens was hung somewhere near the cemetery and laid to rest in it.

|D Varner||Looking for Parents/Grandparents of James R. Varner|
I am the grandson of James R. Varner who is buried in the Varner Cemetery in Knoxville, Th. He was born in the 1870's. I was trying to find out who his father and mother, and his grandfather and grandmother were? Do you have that information? I would also like to buy a genealogy book about the Varner family if you sell them. I guess you and I are kinfolks, but I'm not sure how.
Thanks for any information you can offer.

The photo you have posted for Joel A Brewer is really that of his father.

Thank you for removing the photo.
