Hi Shannon, I was wondering what your connection to Ms Goldie was. As it so happens she lived next door to my family when I was growing up. I really did like her. She worked in Knoxville, TN (about 40 miles from home)as a maid and she would come home some weekends or whenever the family she worked for went on trips. She always brought us kids something, usually it was a bag of pennies or candy. She is buried next to her mother, I took a pic of her gravestone but it really needs to be cleaned up, you can't read it the way it is now, I plan on going to the cemetery when it warms up and will get a good pic of it. I do have a couple of pics of Ms Goldie I can send you if you want them.

Hello Shannon, will check my files and see if I have others. It's been some time since I was there and took the photos. I may return this spring and take more that were missed on my previous trip. It might take a day or two, but will get back to you with more images if I have them on my external hardrive. Best regards. Robert

Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. I will try to decipher the stone. I have been asking around about how I could get this done as alot of people say not to use chalk. I asked the local tombstone maker and he says it doesn't hurt them but there is a lot of controversy over that. The other thing I was told to do was use shaving cream and to take water along to rinse off but then again there is a lot of nay sayers for that too.
I am going to try using tin foil as that seems the safest. So wish me luck! I hope this works!

There might have been more, but I can't remember. I'm sorry. If you put this request on Find a Grave, if I ever make it back to the cemetery, I will try to look for them.
Thanks so very much for photoing these for me.

Thank you SO much for taking this photo!!! This is the gravestone for my great-grandfather who died the year I was born. I really appreciate your help.
Did you have another photo for Lula Fisher? I don't see it on the cemetery page...
Thank you so much for taking a photo of Joe Booker's grave! My wife will be very happy you found it. Also, Lula Fisher is indeed related, so thanks for taking that one while you were at it.
I have sent an e-mail to your e-mail address since my answer ended up being lenghty.
