Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi Everyone!

My real name is June. I have been doing family genealogy since about 2000. I have a massive amount of information of my ancestors as well as my husband's. Knowing how difficult it is to find dates and places where people died and are buried, I'm certain I've contributed to helping others trace their own ancestors by recording information of local cemeteries and actually, cemeteries in other states.

If you should see a discrepancy as a tombstone picture is attached and there is nothing in the Bio, please notify me as I'm not notified when tombstone pictures are added.

I have learned over the years that it is best to match the memorial name to the tombstone name; therefore, preventing duplicates and "Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience."

If other information is known such as the full name, multiple spouses, etc., that information is listed in the Bio. Also, if it is an unmarked grave, that is also listed in the Bio.

If we all share our information collected through the years, researching family ancestors would definitely be much easier.

Should you find a need to revise a record, such as Maiden Name, Bio, etc., on any records I've inputted, please do not hesitate to contact me. I research, so more than likely, I'll have more information to pass on to you if you contact me by e-mail. Suggestion submissions requesting transfers of memorials will be ignored (e-mail only please).

I think this site is a great way to share information and I just hope more people take advantage of it!

RE: No Dates
I did not think of that. I must have caught you in your work a little bit early. I scan every 24 hours for new entries I can get and to update entries I find with sparse information.

From your Bio, it looks like you are deep into your work. I have spent the last 15 yrs working on my family tree when I can.

Thank you for all of your work... It is impressive

No Dates
Question for you.

Are all of your Deaton postings (over the last 24 hours) for Pleasant Springs Cemetery not have dates on their tombstones?

I have a tombstone for a William Lee Deaton who is buried in Pleasant Springs Cemetery and it does have dates
Born: 15 May, 1929
Died: 28 Feb, 1942

Without dates I do not know if we are talking about the same person.

Not posting dates makes it more difficult to identify a person. Same as posting a woman and not posting her "Maiden Name". Who do you look for?

Memorial 83935186 Thomas Hopper
Hello, I have suggested some edits to add Thomas' parents links to his page. While some of the dates mentioned in the bios do not match 100% I have info that he is the brother of my ancestor Charles Hopper 58648307. Thank you for your help.

RE: MiddleforK Cemetery - Tennessee
Hello June, Thank you so very much for the information you sent me on Middlefork Cemetery in Tennessee. I do see there was a Jennie Ross and that sounds like the Sennie that I found in an old newspaper clipping I received (by chance) from a relative I barely knew (my mother's sister's daughter.)

My father was Robert Edward Ross and is almost a total mystery to me, although I grew up in the same house with him.

He never spoke of having parents. He did speak of a grandmother named Mary (no last name)nor any particulars.

I vaguely remember visiting someone named A.J.
Ross (somewhere in Henderson or Lexington,TN when I was about 5 years old. He was an adult and his son (also A.J. Ross) was about the same age as I.

Even my father's age was a mystery. He always said he was one year older than my mother and that would make his birth date 4/28/1924. But his obituary said 4/28/1914 (making him 95 when he died, although Social Security & "find a person" listed his age as 101 that would make his birth date 1908. He said he came from the Lexington, Henderson area of Tennessee, not an exact address. I'm such a novice at researching anything, I never found any mention of a Robert Edward Ross.

On a hunch one day and myself being born in Jackson, TN, I thought I'd try to find an A. J.
Ross in Jackson. I did. He never actually admitted to knowing Robert Ross but he described me to a "T"...that's how I knew he knew who I was. He talked in riddles and it was hard to follow along with what he was saying. I asked about my father's family and he said "Seven year old kids got set out on the side of the road." Harsh to say the least. He never gave me any answers that made sense except for the name of a woman to call and she was as strange as he was. She did tell me that Robert Ross (she did not know his parents) had 2 brothers and one sister. She referred to him as Uncle Robert. (Wouldn't that have meant she was a relative?) I told her my father had passed away. At that point she became hysterical. Very. I told her I was sorry that I had upset her and thanked her for the conversation. But really that's all I got from both of them.

When I was very young, my father kept a cardboard suitcase in the attic and I remember seeing papers from the Department of the Navy. His grave site mentions being a veteran of the Navy. He never verbally said he had been in the Navy in fact never mentioned it at all. (He and my mother divorced in the 60's. Find A Grave Memorial# 48510399 (I hope I've done this right.)

I know this is an imposition to ask you if you might be able to find anything about him but could you? My mother never spoke of family and I don't believe she ever knew them. Her family had some standing in Jackson, TN (and her side still does) so it still does not make sense to me as to why nothing about my father's family was ever discussed.

I think he was in the CCC Camp ( Civil Conservation Corp ?) in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee. I've asked the Navy Department several times but have never received a reply from them.

If this is too much to ask, no problem, just sorry for the inconvenience. But it sure would be nice to know who he really was.

MiddleforK Cemetery - Tennessee
I was wondering if you knew any of the Ross's buried in the Middlefork Cemetery in Tennessee?
Or might be able to tell me who or what I can contact to find out anything at all.

Two names sound familiar to me Andrew Jackson Ross and Jenny Ross. I am searching for any information on them. (Jennie may actually be Sennie?)

Thank you very much.

Not sure where the burial info came from - after checking him through think it's most likely he died in Arkansas, possibly Pulaski County as there are census records and a marriage license for him there - thanks for the catch.
