Bio Photo Recent trip to Hunter Cemetery, Maury Co. Mt. Pleasant, Tn. Two large trees have fallen and one missed the McGee memorial by about 2ft. Another tree fell and has destroyed the ts of Richard Stockard and about 6 others around it.
Wayne Austin and I are trying to get volunteers to go there and moved the trees and repair the stones that are damaged/destroyed. Any suggestion on how to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated. A photo on the memorial of Richard Stockard will show part of the damage.

Born and raised in Lewis and Maury County, Tennessee. Member of the National Society of Children of the American Revolutionary War.

Maury Co., Tn has many historical cemeteries. Many Rev. War soldiers are buried in Maury Co./Lewis Co. Tn., also many Civil War Generals, War of 1812, and their soldiers.

Researching, McLean/McClain/Stockard/Craig/Kennedy/Hunt/Cooper/Cook/
Cemetery preservation is very important to me and I try to list from actual cemetery visits and various book listings. I have been working with Wayne Austin for the last 10 years as a volunteer contributor for his project.
Please, e-mail me with any corrections or additional information that needs to be posted at any Maury County Cemetery where you see my name via the edit option on the memorial.

If I have posted a close relative of yours let me know and I will transfer. Please use the edit option on the memorial for updates, corrections and questions, my responce will be much faster, I don't have to look up the memorial by name that way.

FYI, the headstones in Georgetown, TX, are actually incorrect. Sr should be Jr and Jr should be "III". Probably was confusion since "Thee" preceeded his dad in death. He died unexpectedly while in college.

RE: williams
Wiley Williams married Mary Ann Harrington. They had 12 children: Eugenia Jane, Martha A (Trousdale, then Rains), John H, George A, James A, William Frank, Labetha E, Elizabeth Ann (as I have her, mother of Wiley Franklin Odom), Savicey E, Frances Caroline (Bailey), Mary Elinor, Huldah L. This all comes from census records.

"Willy F Williams"
Willy F Williams is actually Wiley Franklin Odom, an illegitimate child born of Tabitha Elizabeth. He's not Wiley's son, he's his grandson. Amazing, right?

I'm happy to transfer ~

Jacqueline (McClain) Sherrill's memorial 104278981 to your care ~ All done ~ and under other circumstances, as my attention is drawn to earlier memorials that I set up (those in which I DIDN'T edit the obituary to delete the names of living persons) I usually go back in to do just that. However, since you say she is in your direct line, I'll leave that for you to do or not to do, as you see fit.

It's interesting, I think, that as much as I get great satisfaction in transferring a memorial to someone related to it, I'm also a little reluctant to let go of something I 'created.' Fortunately the former far exceeds the latter!

LOVE Cemetery
I think this mess is why when I found out that I made a mistake in creating my cemetery page, I decided to not try to clean it up. Too many Love cemeteries and too many duplicated names.

That's why I think the first thing would be to put all the ones that are associated with the right cemetery into one package and worry about the duplicated names then. At that point, we can gather the best data from each name into one.

I made the cemetery named "Love Family" with 47 names, so naturally, I'm inclined to keep these. But once we lump them all together, maybe we can meet at the archives for a day and hash it out.
