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.
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.

|Ted Waterston||RE: Cooper|
I tried to find the headstone for Robert Cooper (#10041162)on my trip last year, but I could not find. I am pretty sure I was at the correct cemetery in York, SC. Do you know the current status of his headstone? I was a bit rushed because I had to get to Charleston by a particular time, so perhaps I just missed it. If you have any information, let me know. I might try again on another visit. My sister lives in Greer, SC.
|Ted Waterston||Robert Theodore Cooper|
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.
|Ted Waterston||RE: Cooper|
I visited the McClain cemetery last summer. The heartbreaking discovery is that Robert T. Cooper's younger brother is buried with his parents and died under his command before losing his own life later in the war.
This piece of information was new and I would not have known about it had I not seen the headstone.
Losing a sibling would be difficult enough, but for it to happen in combat under your leadership would just be gut-wrenching. I have to admit it makes my eyes water even so many generations removed, but justifiable for those of us that appreciate the sacrifices of our forebearers.
I will say that I am even one generation closer to this given that my grandmother was reared by R.T. Cooper's son (and namesake), and I was extremely close to my grandmother.
|Ted Waterston||RE: Cooper|
Howdy Mary Bob,
Thank you very much for contacting me.
Yes, Robert Theodore Cooper is my great-great-great grandfather.
My Cooper family history is very well documented, but I would welcome what you have to share.

Wanda Embler has also added this. Hers has the Obit, Stone and a Picture of her. Just thought I would let you know
|Carolynn ni Lochlainn||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.
|Carolynn ni Lochlainn||RE: caleb williams|
I don't know where they're buried, but I have ideas about their settlement location. This Williams family resettled to West Texas in the 1880s, and I think that some Williams cousins, also named Williams, settled together with them. Eastland County is one possibility.
|Carolynn ni Lochlainn||"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?
|Carolynn ni Lochlainn||RE: Wiley Williams will abstract|
I have Caleb S Williams on my tree. Elizabeth, Wiley's daughter, was my direct ancestor in that generation. Not much on her - she never married despite having one child, a son named Wiley Odom. Anything you have would be great!
|Carolynn ni Lochlainn||Wiley Williams will abstract|
Oh my gosh, thank you so much!!! I am so excited to have that text on the memorial. I really appreciate you adding it.
