Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Memphis, Tennessee, an Elmwood Cemetery interpreter and a historic property docent. Local gay community historian and writer. Have memorials for the Astor, Garavelli and Hill families related to me and some interesting personages I know about.
I will be posting more photos so my family members will become real people again and not just some leftovers under the grass.

I notice that there is another memorial for him that predates yours. You may want to contact the lady and see how she wants to handle that. Pics added today.

Memphis Mayors
Ok, Walter L Clapp is in ELmwood, Miller Cirlce # 130. William O. Lofland ended up in California. He died in Auburn, Placer Co., Ca on 12-21-1891. I believe it is likely he is buried in Alameda County, CA (Bay Area). This is not confimed.

Mayor Tho. Ashcroft
I believe his middle initial was 'C' not 'H'. According to the 1916 Memphis City Directory Thomas C. Ashcroft was the mayor of Memphis. He is buried in Calvary Cemetery, Chapel Hill Circle, No. 1. He died in 1935.

Mayor Wm. Decater Bethell
He moved, died and was buried in Denver in 1906. Here's a link to his memorial: #13461474 His daughter Jenny married an Edrington and is buried in Elmwood (possibly in Lenow Circle). Most, if not all, the other kids are buried in the Denver plot. Wife was a Pillow. Not sure of connection, if any, to Gideon Pillow.

RE: Theodora Tresevant Neely
No, I think they just put that I supplied the information. It just kicks me to my contributor tool page.

RE: Theodora Tresevant Neely
I would correct it but I am not the owner of her memorial.

Jesse Hollowell, b.1874
Hello Vincent

The 1880 census, Benton County, Tennessee for the household of Redden Hollowell lists a Piety Hollowell, b. 1873. Some sites list her as Piety (Jesse) Hollowell. I found a Jesse (Piety) Hollowell on the Find-A-Grave site with your name as the contact. This Jesse Hollowell was married 3 times: #1 Oscar Astor, #2 William Rufus Pardue,
and #3 Richard High.

Do you have more information on this Jesse Hollowell, i.e., birth parents, brothers and/or sisters?

Thank You Vincent

Richard High
Mr High is buried about 15 feet South from the stone of the pic and very near the fence. He has no marker. I've sent an edit regarding plot #. Sorry.
