Retired bean counter now tracking ancestors instead of numbers. Mother of three and grandmother of five fascinating grandchildren. Married to the same man for 50+ years.|
Knew the names and cemeteries of all my grandparents and Ggrandparents before I could write. On one family trip we stopped at the Steekee Cemetery in Loudon,Tn. I transcribbed stones because my mother was so excited she couldn't write. Now 50+ years later I still use those notes!

|Rick Platt||RE: George A Meeker|
I'm hoping you are happy about this find! It seems his stone was missing. I can see where you would be wanting to be sure, though.
He was the earliest doctor this west in the U.S. according to one source. That's pretty cool. Was he your relative?
Yes, the church does have records dating that far back even. My ancestor who died in 1861 was verified there. One can write to the Salem Cemetery Association.
My sources for this were multiple. For one, the gravestone itself reads "George A. Meeker M.D." which greatly narrows to whom this stone could refer. I also found a Findagrave.com memorial in WV (yours, I believe) that indicates he is believed to be buried in "Clarion or Armstrong" counties. Ancestry.com indicates he was living in Beaver Township, Clarion County in 1850 and his widow there in 1860.
I live many miles away from Salem, but find myself in that area once a year. I have tagged it to check more information the next time I'm there.
Good luck in your further research.
|Debbie Hilliard||RE: Reuben Criss|
You are welcome. I try to take advantage of these days of moderate temps - it will soon be too hot! This cemetery is not well cared for and many stones are broken or brush has grown up and taken over others. However, it was mostly shady and pretty wild flowers.
|Debbie Hilliard||Scott Cemetery|
I live near Millican, TX and have been trying to locate Scott Cemetery to fill a couple of photo requests you have posted. I cannot find any info on this cemetery. I noticed on one of the death certificates that the undertaker's name was Edd Scott - maybe a connection?
|Betsy Campbell||Edmond Head|
Hello! So I wanted to write to you and tell you the situition I ecountered finding Edmond's grave.So I found Edmond's wife's grave, and two of her daughters, but separating the three of them are two unknown graves. I want to believe that one of these is Edmonds grave. But I don't want to post the picture of the unknown grave and say it is Edmond's. But if you would like me to post the picture please let me know.

Hello, I am trying to find information on James J. Grant and his wife Irene M. Grant ( Litch). I believe that Irene would be my great grand aunt.
|Kathleen Blackburn Norris||RE: Steeke Cemetery|
Good to hear from you. My paternal grandparents all hail from Burton! I went on a genealogy trek to Brenham and Burton in 2008. I loved being there for the first time since my grandmother died in 1979. BTW, I can relate to you and your mother's enthusiasm at discovering so many past relatives. It is fun!
Good luck to you in all your genealogy digging. We are cut from the same cloth. I too have a bean-counter background.
