My mom and I have been able to find some pictures of head stones on this site that we most likely would never have seen. It's helped us in my search of our family history. "Thank you".|
If we've made any mistakes or you have any suggestions for any of the ones that we've placed in here, please let us know.
If you'd like us to transfer a site over to you, just ask. As long as it's not someone that is a part of our family I will be glad to transfer.

Ah thanks for the information and for adding them. I understand about having to delete pictures quickly. They do take up a good deal of space. If you could get the phone number, I'd appreciate it. I'm not sure how soon I'd be able to call them as I'm usually working most common work hours but perhaps I can get a chance soon. Thank you again.

Thank you for checking for the Kitsons and I appreciate you making the memorials for the ones you did find. I'm not positive if they're related or not at this moment. But I appreciated the offer.

|tombstone2c||Story surname - Roadman Cemetery|
There is no record of anyone with the Story surname being buried in Roadman Cemetery, Newport, Cocke County, TN. The photographic record made in 2011 did not yield any markers with that surname. However, we did locate two previously unknown tombstones at that time. Please keep in mind, it is a known fact many early burials in this cemetery were only marked with field stones. Only family members would have known the location of such burials and the names of the deceased. Unfortunately, that information is now lost to us except for a few rare cases. It is also possible there are a few tombstones that have gotten buried over time and were not visible when readings of the grounds were taken in the 1960's. The 2011 photo record did reveal several tombstones were missing that were on previous readings of the grounds.
Have you checked other cemeteries in the area? Do you know where these ancestors lived within the county? Are they listed in the 1840 or 1850 census? That might be a clue as to locality in which they were buried.

The only stones that are ok are those surrounded by the metal poles. Everything else has been buried in mud, waste and are broken. At least when I found Barnet's and Elizabeth's they were buried. We also found Benjamin Elmore's stone.. It has been so long I will have to check. Cattle are in the pasture.
Good to hear from you.

I have a census taken before the stones were knocked down and trampled if you would like me to send a copy to you. Several of us went a few summers ago and dug up some stones. I took pictures of those we found and I would be happy to send those to you as well.

|I love genealogy||RE: Myers|
Thank you very much. We even have the description of William's headstone from the receipt for it. Hope it's there and thank you for trying!!!
|geneology lover||Daniel Motley|
I believe the Daniel Motley memorial # 98452918, may have been born sept 15, 1798, in Pittsylvania County, Va. Husband of Jane Shellhorse Motley, Memorial # 98452759 ,born dec 5, 1803, in Pittsylvania County, Va. Of course I could be wrong about this, and apologize for the mistake.

|Susan Kelly||RE: Scholl, Dover Cem.|
Hello. Did I misread this, or is your name, Susan, as well.
Thank you, so much, for the transfer of the Scholl memorials to me. And, for being so kind as to go to the cemetery and take the headstone photos. I am still trying to find the link from these Scholl's to my Browning's. As you might have noticed, there is a Scholl's family member by the name of Mountjoy, which is a bit unusual. My grandfather was adopted by a Browning family at the age of three months,and they named him, Mountjoy. So, you might see why I believe that there is a family connection, not to mention his wife being a Browning (the original Mountjoy Scholl, that is) and that there were also other Browning family members in census records with them.
I can't thank you enough for your help.
