Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been retiring for three years from Adult Education, after teaching for 28 plus years. I plan on doing my favorite pass time, genealogy and taking photos of tombstones and posting them on line. I have personally inventoried about every cemetery in Bledsoe County. I have photo of all the tombstone in about every cemetery. My goal is to finish all the cemeteries this year.

I am married to my husband Clarence for 47+ years. We have two children and six grandchildren and four great-grandson.
I have be researching on all of my family lines for over 50 years. If it had not been for this resource I never would have found one of my great-great grandmother if it had not been for this site. This site is one of the best in the world for helping others.

John L. Swafford and children
Ms. Burgess--Thanks so much for your Memorial Page in tribute to my grandfather, John L. Swafford. On a most minor note, you have his birth date as 1845. It should be 1846 (and the 1846 date is the one shown on the Smeyna Cemetery gravestone marker). John and his wife, Eve Jane Billingsley Swafford had ten children--in order of birth:
Lester Otis Swafford (burial at Smyrna) Cem) (1875-1948)
Victor Hugo (I think you have Hugh) Swafford (died at 22) (burial at Smyrna em.) (1877-1899)
China Beulah Swafford Patton Thurman (burial at Smyrna Cem.) (1879-1959)
Lillie Swafford Southard (burial at Crossville City Cem, Crossville TN (1882-1974)
Lisa Swafford Hawkins (burial at Smyrna Cem)(1884-1919)
Henry Grady Swafford (burial at Smyrna Cem) (1887-1960)
Frank Swafford (burial at Okmulgee Cemetery,Okmulgee OK (1889-1975)
Dudley Clift Swafford, Pikeville City Cem, Pikeville, TN (1891-1958)
Ann Swafford Acuff Weidemann (burial at Smyrna Cem.) (1894-1980)
Billie Swafford Lacy (burial at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Abilene, TX) (1902-1988)

I am a son of Billie Swafford Lacy. Thanks again (my e-mail address is qjdlacy@sbcglobal.net

Hi Brenda,

I want to thank you so much for fulfilling our photo requests. You have been so helpful in capturing our family photos of their headstones.

If it hasn't been for you we would never know what their headstones look like.

You have done wonderful work in Pikeville City Cemetery and surrounding area cemeteries in the Bledsoe area.

Thank you again,
Paul,Jr & Karen Hudson

Bess Montgomery Phy headstone
Hi Brenda,

I want to also thank you for fulfilling our photo requests on the Ferguson's in Pikeville City Cemetery.

One more thing. On Harold Grady Ferguson memorial....you placed Bess Montgomery Phy headstone 1896-1989 on Harold's memorial.

Just wanted to let you know so you can put your photo on the correct memorial.

Thank you again for your time and efforts. It was so kind of you.

Thanks,
Karen & Paul, Jr Hudson

RE: Samue Swafford
OK! Good to see a Swafford doing it. I'm in Dayton, so what looks like a 15 min ride to Findagrave on the map means "over the mountain" for me. Thank you. If you need help, holler.

RE: Richard Vernon
I'm terribly sorry to send you the wrong number for Richard Vernon (I typed an extra number at the end of it).

The appropriate number for Richard Vernon is:
(#10158408). I checked it to make sure.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
