Bio Photo Hello,
Should you find a mistake or duplicate, please respectfully let me know.

Please do not transfer a memorial to me unless I request it. I add information to memorials that I am in no way related to.

Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Matthew 11:28-30
28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Psalm 46:1
1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Nahum 1:7
7 The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,

Psalms 91:1-4
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

Hebrews 9:28
So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:6-8

RE: John Hall
If possible, could you please transfer your photos?
Since they were posted by you, am I right in saying that only you can move them?

Yep, Toni is our girl. As of Monday, we have had her for 8 years. Someone threw her out near our home just after she was born.

I've checked; the confederate cemetery in Franklin Tennessee IS the "McGavock Confederate Cemetery" as it was established on land donated by the McGavock planter family. However, over 1500 people refer to it as simply "Confederate Cemetery." I suppose it doesn't really matter. thanks for your help.

RE: 150316243
I've submitted an edit so that GWW's birth and death info will appear in the appropriate spot. BTW my info denotes McGavock Confederate Cemetery--is there a difference?
I've deleted my entry; thanks for working with me to get ole George properly identified and remembered.

RE: 150316243
Yes, I think they should be merged since they are the same person. If you will please add the following information to your memorial, then I will simply delete mine #150316243.

Hello Diana, I sent an edit for Fred L. Bunn # 105807905 and for Sadie Coleman Bunn # 58657891 to link them together. I put the memorial number of their daughter, Audrey instead of Sadie's. I apologize for my error and creating extra work to correct my mistake. Fred and Sadie Bunn were husband /wife; Audrey Odom, Frank Bunn, William Bunn were their children. Again, very sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you. ESJ

I believe your memorial for "Cotton" in the McGavock Confederate Cemetery to be that of George Washington Whitecotton. Be so kind as to examine the information in his memorial for verification.
