You're welcome! I have photographed most, if not all, of them. I tried to get them all the last time I was there a couple of years ago, but I was losing daylight, and I can't remember if I got all of them or not. There are several that are so worn that they look almost like rocks now - you can't even tell that anything was written on them anymore.
I haven't compared all of my pictures to FindAGrave yet to see if they are all already there or not. Is there one that you were looking for? If you give me the name(s), I can see if I have pictures of the headstones. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like.

Hello - The coordinates for the Eck Davis cemetery are: 36.434648, -85.187251
It is down an unmarked lane that splits off of Gib Young Lane. You'll turn on to Gib Young Lane from Dogwalk Road, and when the road forks, you'll stay to the left. It goes down a hill and ends at a gate to a cow pasture. It is on private property, within the cow pasture in a small gated area. It is well kept, but there is no sign listing the name of the cemetery. I've heard some of my relatives refer to it as the McDonald Cemetery instead of the Eck Davis Cemetery as well.
The gate to the cow pasture has been open a couple of times that we've gone, but it was closed once when the cows were out. If you take the right fork in the road when it splits instead of the left, you'll come to a small house on your left just past the fork. If you talk to the people who live there, they will likely tell you that it is fine to go on down to the cemetery, and if the cows are out, to just shut the gate behind you to keep them from getting out.
I hope that helps!

James Eldon Phifer ( Jimmy ) was my husband's baby brother, who died only 38 days after he was born. We have a copy of his death certificate and know that he was buried in the Crossville City Cemetery in Crossville, Tennessee, but we have never been able to locate his gravesite.
We were told that he was probably buried in " Baby Land," a section with many infant graves, some marked and some unmarked. This has caused my husband much grief and we would like to be able to place a proper headstone on his grave.
If anyone can assist us in this search, we would really appreciate it.
Thank you, Gordon and Marian Phifer

Larry has died?! He was of so much help with genealogy in Jackson County. Could you tell me where he was buried so that I can leave a message?

Thank you very much for transferring my mother-in-law's memorial to my son and I. We are shocked to hear about Larry Moore's passing and remember him well. He was always very kind to us and helped us however he could. He will be missed.
That made me cry. I only knew Larry thru e-mails, but he was so generous with helping me. He would tell me about his driving and his sisters and their mowing. As soon as I thanked him for adding my husbands memorial, he offered a transfer, but I was not ready then and later when I was, he transferred it immediately. I had not really been that active on Find a Grave, but he helped by giving me step by step instructions and that was my start at being much more active. He drove thru the Tennessee County that I grew up in and added many people that I knew the families and often the person. I never ask for many transfers, but when I did and told him the reason, I had it the next day or sooner. Wish I could have known him in person. Thank you for adding the memorial. Marjorie

|Genealogy Lover||RE: Wirmingham Cemetery|
oh, no. I hadn't heard about Larry Moore. That is sad. I didn't know him personally, but had heard good things. I did a session on grave dowsing at the Genealogy Bonanza in Livingston on Friday. Then we went out and dowsed Capps/Goodpasture cemetery which only has 9 or so heastones but around 15 to 20 more unmarked burials. When the dowsing was finished, the lady who has the original plot map from decades ago pulled it out and we compared. The burials found through dowsing were very closely lined with the ones on the map!
|James Maxwell||Thank you!|
I just want to thank you generally for all of the work you do on photographing graves and maintaining so many memorials. Also, thank you for your quick response to edits and requests. I really appreciate all of your work.
Thank you so much,

That was SO sweet of you to go back today. I would have waiting until your next trip there. That is so bizarre that it says "Lancashire, Indiana". They were from Lancashire, certainly...but Lancashire ENGLAND, and I'm sure that's what was meant to be on the stone. Something got lost in the translation somewhere :-) along with the correct spelling of Frances's name. It makes me think that the stone was put them sometime after they had moved to Texas (where Isaac P. drowned at age 3) - that would have been 1875 or thereabouts.
I do think that Joseph E and Albert are buried there as they both died while the family lived in Crab Orchard, but whether or not Isaac P is actually buried there...that I don't know at all. I like to think that they are all there together, but that may be wishful thinking on my part. Written history says that Isaac P drowned on their Texas ranch, but when I brought that up to the family, another story came out that Isaac drowned in Texas while they were on their way to their land and had to wait out an Indian uprising while on the Chisholm trail. Whether they would have buried him in Texas or had means to send his body back to Tennessee...guess I'll never know.
Thank you again so much for your efforts and persistence on my behalf. You'll never know how much I appreciate all of this.
And yes, I'd love to have any other photos you'd care to share. My email is email@example.com.
Thank you again, Noelle.
