Bio and Links
I started following my family tree over 20 years ago (about 1993). I have been doing research on the Estep's of Carter Co, TN which is my mom's side and mostly Simmons, Spence, Thomas, Landers and Wheeler of WV & VA for my dad's side.

Even though I have been collecting information for awhile, I started adding names and pictures in Jan 2008 to Find a Grave in hopes of helping others and maybe even connecting with more relatives.

Visit my family tree and see if any info looks familiar.

Please use my pictures to assist with your ancestry search. All I ask is that you add my name to wherever they are posted, printed, etc, so that I may get credit for my efforts.

Tonya (Simmons) Davie

Craig Cemetery
Can you give me specific directions to the Craig Cemetery in Powellton? I believe my husband's grandmother is buried there, but want to make sure it is the correct Craig Cemetery (Craig Cemetery is what is listed on her death certificate).
Thanks so much!

Hi Tonya, I added a link as you requested. I had to add it to the obit area since I don't have access to add children. Glenda

Hi Tonya,
Rascal Burwell is my 4th great-grandfather, too - through his son John to Benjamin, James, and my lovely grandmother Dulcie who married David Arthur Frazier.
Just thought I'd drop a line a say hi to a cousin!

Duplicate listing in Old Hickory Grove Cemetery
Hi Tonya,

I was skimming through the interment list for this cemetery this morning, & noticed that your listing for Sarah Brooker is a duplicate of one that Wilbur Dixon created. His is the more complete listing, so I was wondering if you might be willing to see about deleting this one for the sake of accuracy? I'm working with the county archive in surveying one cemetery now for the Preservation Society, & this cemetery is on the list when we get done with that one. I'd love to have the duplicates cleared out of the system before we physically get out there to do the work needed.

I appreciate your time!

Hi Tonya,
Good to hear from you. I don't have any
additional info for Rideout. My only suggestion would be contacting Claude Bass at the Archives Center in Green Cove.

RE: The link request you're sending
Thanks Tonya! I know I bombarded you with requests. Just remember, if you have questions about any of them to send me a message. I only want the cemetery to be the best that it can be. I am working on Riverside Memorial Park in Jacksonville now. Think I will ever finish? I doubt it! Again, thank you so much for all your hard work. You are like go above and beyond.

RE: The link request you're sending
Thank you so much for all your hard work. I've been to Old Hickory Grove and know the effort that it took to work in the cemetery because of the neglect. It's a shame that it's not taken care of. I have family buried in the cemetery and I'm looking for other family members. I've been looking at census records and decided to link those that I can. I'm also adding a comment in Ancestry about where they are buried.

Hi Tonya, I came across this website looking up an article on my Uncle lee Roy and noticed my Dads name. Im not sure what this site is about. I was just surprised that someone thanked you for putting my Dad's grave marker up. I would love to reconnect with friends or family. I don't know much of my family. Can you tell me about what you do? Thanks, Ronda
