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 49+ 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.

Josie Alice Burgess
Hello, Josie is my great aunt through marriage to John Riley Frazier. She was born Sept. 20, 1887 in Cumberland, Tennessee and died May 24, 1933. i am trying to locate where she is buried so I can create a memorial and link her to my family. By chance do you have any data on her. She was so young when she passed.

Thank You, Dianne Caves Carman

Hghes Cemetery
Is the Hughes Cemetery the cemetery just off of East Valley Road near the Stephen Chapel Methodist Church and on the opposite side of East Valley Road? I was at one in that area in 1985 and it was on private property and very overgrown. We had to walk quite a distance behind the barn to get to it. I did not know the name of the cemetery at the time. I will appreciate your help. Than you. Betty

# 67113251 Lester Otis Swafford
Hi Brenda,
Was just looking at a post regarding Lester Swafford on Chattanooga history. Apparently there is a gravestone in a grassy area for this gentleman near Tunnel Blvd and Hiawassee Street in Chattanooga. In looking at his obit there is no tie to this area although he did live and work in Chattanooga (thinking auto accident). Since you have researched the cemeteries, would you know an answer to the gravestone in Chattanooga and its significance? Would be happy to email you a photo. My Email is janetv40@gmail.com

Thanks, Jan Vaughn

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
