Smith Tinker, b 1833
Ed,you have not indicated a burial site for Smith Tinker, have a date of death of 22 Sep 1887, and show his birth as Kentucky. Smith appears in the 1900 Census for Dade County, Georgia, age 67, born in Tennessee, which is where his father Abraham would indeed have been at that time. Can you provide a source for the information you show on Find-a-Grave and explain the absence of a burial location? Thank you.

Wrong Thomas Forrester

I think you have linked to the wrong Forresters. The Thomas who married Mildred Glen in Surry county did not die at Germantown. Also, his son James wrote a will in Surry county that was probated in June 1837

Here's the will of Thomas in Surry county, NC --

Surry Co., North Carolina

In The Name of God Amen
I Thomas Forrester of the Province of North Carolina & County of Surry being Sick and weak of Body but of Perfect Senses and memory Blessed be God for the Same do make Constitute & Ordain this my Last Will & Testament (Viz) and first of All I give my Soul to him that Gave it me, and my Body to buried by Executors Hereafter named and as to the Worldly Goods wherewith it hath Pleased God to bless Me I give in the Manner & form Following.

Grif Johnson grave photo
Thanks so much for taking a photo of Grif Johnson's grave. I really appreciate this. You were kind to help me. It is important to remember our past and relatives so we can appreciate the struggles they went through, then our days sometimes do not seem so bad. Again, thanks for another piece of family history.
