Bio and Links
I have been working on our family genealogy for over 10 years now and it is addictive. Some of the lines that I am working on are Mitchell, Henson, Jones, Whittle, McFarland, Yarbrough/Yarbro, Barnes, Collins, Bunch, Beadle, Halk, Brown, and many more, too many to name.

If any errors are found in the data I have entered or if you would like to add additional information, please let me know.

RE: Cogdell
Kim, I am only very distantly related to the Cogdells, if at all. I haven't checked very far back in my line. But, Auneta's brother John Melton Gardner married Armon K Whittle 1922-2001, daughter of Ares and Chloie Whittle. Any relationship there? Armon's story was a little special to me...

John Melton Gardner and Armon Whittle had two children, a son, Johnny LaNeil Gardner, who died at birth and a daughter, Peggy Gardner Usery. After John's death, Armon moved to Granada MS to be near her daughter. There she met and married Mr. Alfred Earl Roberts. After her death Armon was returned to Henderson Co TN. She, John Melton and little Johnny LaNeil Gardner are buried in Independence Cemetery, Henderson Co TN (Middle Section).

There is a very touching tribute on Armon's memorial about her 2nd marriage... 91662935

By 1940 census Otha is living with his father and Auneta is living with her brother Melton Gardner and other siblings. Auneta married (2) Leroy Cogdell 1916-1971. Auneta and Leroy had two young sons Danny Cogdell b. 1943, and Dicky Cogdell b. 1950 who died within a few days of birth and Ronald L Cogdell b. Sep 1, 1949.

Mary Tharp Jackson, #25753356
Mary Tharp Jackson has recently passed away. I thought you might like to complete her Find A Grave Memorial page now. Her obituary was in the Jackson Sun and I have included it here. According to the obituary, her husband Charles Raymond Jackson, passed away in May, 2010. Would you please add his death date to his page? Thanks!

Mary Tharp Jackson, age 90, died at her Jackson residence on Thursday, April 25, 2013.

Mary was born in Gibson, Co. on December 25, 1922, the daughter of the late Samuel Evans and Lillian Lee Witherspoon Tharp. She was married to Raymond Jackson for sixty eight years, separated only by his death in May, 2010.

She worked as secretary of the Bemis Pentecostal Church, and of the Tennessee District UPC. She retired as financial manager of the Bemis Post Office with twenty seven years of service.

Her love was her family and serving her Lord Jesus Christ. She expressed her love to God by teaching Sunday school for youth and later, adults, for nearly sixty eight years. She served in leadership positions of the Ladies Auxiliary, teacher training programs, and seminars on the local, state, and national levels for the United Pentecostal Churches. Her family consisting of four children, fourteen grandchildren, and twenty two great-grandchildren, are a testimony to her belief in hard work, personal responsibility and devotion to God.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond, as well as a sister, Eloise Speer; two brothers, James and Horace Tharp, and a grandson, Evan Weaver.

She is survived by her son, Richard Jackson (Melba); daughters, Danita Sykes (Jerry), Carole Gordon (Al) and Gayla Morris (Vernon); thirteen grandchildren and twenty-two great-grandchildren; two sisters, Florine Tidwell and Grace Holland, and one brother, Harold Tharp.

Services: funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 29, 2013 at the Calvary Church Ministries, with Rev. Ron Brown, Rev. Cliff Walker and Rev. Bill Luther officiating. Burial will follow in Highland Memorial Gardens.

Pallbearers will be grandsons, Steven Jackson, Jason Sykes, Justin Morris, Damon Morris, Brett Gordon and Shane England.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, April 28, 2013 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., at Arrington Funeral Directors, and on Monday, April 29, 2013 from 1 p.m. until service time at Calvary Church Ministries.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the following church groups supported by Mrs. Jackson: The Calvary Church Ministries Building Fund, 235 Moize Cut-off Road, Jackson, TN 38305; Resonate Church, 2817 West End Ave., Suite 126-147, Nashville, TN 37203; and Christ Central Ministries, 159 Church Street N.E., Wagoner, SC 29201.
