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 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.

Hi Brenda-

Would you be so kind as to transfer Ann S. Acuff Weidemann to me. The S. is for Swafford and is her maiden. I have quite a bit of info pertaining to her, such as the Weidermann spouse listed on her gravestone, her parents, etc.

No photo volunteers work in Mexico. Please delete your photo request. Maybe you could get a photo by calling the Cemetery.

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

Thanks, Jan Vaughn
