My name is Patricia, but mostly called Pat. I have four adult children, a boy and three girls. I also have 7 grandchildren, 4 boys and 3 girls. I have sort of dabbled in genealogy off and on for years, never really as seriously as some people, but have tried to get a little background of our family together just in case any of the grandchildren would be interested in their heritage one of these days.
I have always enjoyed taking pictures and have taken pictures for years of grave sites of my family and friends, so Find A Grave is right down my alley. I hope that I will be able to make some contribution that will be of some help to others. If you would like a copy of any pictures that I take, you have my permission to use them.
I live in South Central Tennessee and post mostly to the cemeteries in this area and some in North Central Alabama. I usually get my information from the Funeral Home obits, and some from the newspaper obits, so the information that is entered is all that I have. I also try to make trips to the local cemeteries to take gravestone pictures as often as possible.
I am not related to most of the sites that I am listing. If you find a member of your family among my listings and would like to assume the listing so you can enter more personal information about your loved one, please inform me. If you would like for me to add additional information, such as a correction of a date, or a link to a spouse or parent, or any other addition or correction, please let me know. For any transfers, please let me know your relationship. Also, you could consider setting up a virtual cemetery to include all of your relatives in one place regardless of their actual location.
To request a transfer, addition, or correction please go to the "Edit" tab on the memorial page. If you are a member of "Find A Grave", be sure that you are signed in to your account. Then go to "Suggest a Correction". You can write your request to me there under "suggest any other correction or addition". This will give me a direct link to the memorial that you are referring to. For any transfers, please let me know your relationship. Please allow sufficient time for me to respond, as I am not on the computer 24/7.
Jerry Prater Alley I was at Friendship Cemetery recently and I took a photo of Jerry Prater Alley's stone. I had to create a profile for him there - then I happen to see yours at Throgmorton on Clifton Pike. What do we do now. I do not want to manage his burial site, but know that he is profiled at the wrong place. Best Regards,
Randy Barnes I see you added his photo, did you know him, I'm trying to find out if his father was James Bob Barnes 1923-1998, I can't find an obit for James , I do know he died in Tullahoma and was cremated by Tullahoma funeral home, I know who his parents are but we're trying to find his children to connect them to the Barnes in Florida
Ada Bell Pickett-Harwell I got it now, thanks. I really cannot answer your question, except to say. . . There was a Melissa or Malisa Warren that married a James Pickett in 1867 Giles County, Tn. - based on a marriage record at Ancestry.com.
I am not a relative or knowledgeable about the Picketts, except to say, I ran a search on James and Elizabeth of Giles County. and they were married during the time of the other marriage record and until Elizabeth died in 1925.
I don't believe he was the James of James & Melissa.
In the bio it says daughter of James & Melissa. If that is true I think this is the wrong James, wrong parents.
We know the Harwell is correct, I would try to find evidence of her maiden name and correct parents.
