Loftis West Cemetery
You'll have to visit Arthur Baugh Chaffin's memorial again. I worked with Joyce in improving it and in having the duplicate memorial in the so-called "Chaffin/Loftis on Morrison Creek" cemetery emptied. Actually, I asked that it be eliminated; but findagrave left it emptied. The duplicate memorials for Laurina J. Loftis, and Hickman P. Loftis have also been eliminated. But, but, I never would have started this process except for the fact that you alerted me that something was wrong. Once again, I appreciate all the work that you and Retta do for the cemeteries and memorials of Jackson County.

Memorial# 39012257
I see you took the photo for Memorial# 39012257 at Lauderdale Family Cemetery (Gallatin, Sumner County, Tennessee, USA).
I have begun fulfilling photo requests in Sumner County. I need the address for the Lauderdale Family Cemetery to take three photos requested.
Could you send me the address?
Thank you.

Col. James Webb Smith
Hi, I am the 4th Grt Grandson of Col. James Webb Smith, of which I saw where you photographed the cemetery located on Hollemens Bend rd. in Granville Tn. I did not see a listing for his grave however, but did see where his son, Pvt Hugh B Smith is buried with a marker. Can you tell me whether there are any indications of his grave, along with other family members? Also, can you tell me how I can find the cem. I am a bit familiar with the Hollemons Bends rd.

Loftis West Cemetery
Do you think my computer may have been cold. After all, it was 40 degrees here in Houston. You're right the photos now show nicely. Before, they were tiny boxes with an "x" inside.

I have reported the duplicate cemetery "Chaffin/Loftis on Morrison Creek" to and to the contributor "scguy." I'm steaming on that one! I've asked that the 3 duplicate memorials be merged. Although only the one on Arthur Baugh Chaffin has any significant info that is not on the memorial at Loftis West Cemetery. I've also written Joyce about the need to correct the name "Arthur" asap.

Minnie Lee Loftis Loftis
I contacted Joyce about moving Minnie's memorial to the Loftis West Cemetery. But somewhere in Joyce's process, your photo of Minnie's gravestone and the whole Loftis West Cemetery has been "screwed up" or lost. Anyway to fix them? Has one of your many kind deeds led to another? Thank you for any help you can give. Would it be simpler if I just requested another photo of the gravestone? What would I do about the photo of the cemetery? Help!

Ella Boulton Young
Thank you for you reply to my query. I have a feeling that she may be another one of those poor soles who's grave is unmarked.

The Lillard Thompson Family
Thank you ever so much for your time and help. I appreciated your talking the photos that I requested along with their sons (which I hadn't requested but would have once I had worked my research down that far). Since you appear to live in this county, I was wondering if you had ever seen the tombstone of Ella Boulton Young. She died prior to 1894 and was the first wife of Robert Lee Young. She is the mother of Lewis H. Young who is buried in Chestnut Mound too. If you happen to have a clue to this lady, I would appreciate it but don't go to any extra time on this. Just curious. Thanks again, you are appreciated.
