Bio and Links
I've been researching my family for about 15 years, starting with my maternal grandparents. They were born in Campbell County, Tennessee and migrated by covered wagon to Oklahoma.

I have tried to restrict my memorials to my direct paternal and maternal family lines, the grandparents of various degrees. Then somehow some aunts and uncles of various degrees were included, then a few cousins, then . . .

Of course, Find A Grave requires that we know where are ancestors are buried in order to create memorials on this web site, thus, the further we go back the fewer memorials we each have because we do not know where those early ancestors are. However, there are known burial locations for at least two of my ancestors that go waaaaay, way back. You might want to visit their memorials:
William and Matilda . They are my 28th great grandparents on my paternal grandmother's side of the family. When you get back that far, you have a LOT of cousins.
Find A Grave statement regarding headstones:

How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone. By related, this does not mean, for example, if you are a third cousin three times removed.

Gravestones should never be cleaned with anything but water and a soft brush. Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.

Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive.

Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones.

I invite researchers of East Tennessee to the memorial for Peter Graham Fulkerson . The name P.G. Fulkerson is probably more familiar. P.G. was a farmer, lawyer, judge and district attorney general who also had an interest in history and genealogy. He created brief records, perhaps a paragraph or two, of some of the early settlers of Claiborne County. As he created for some of my ancestors, his memorial is my brief record, a paragraph or two, of The Honorable Peter Graham Fulkerson.

Take time to follow the link on his memorial to his answers to The Tennessee Civil War Veterans Questionnaires.

John Pierce
Hello, are you sure the Muster Card for John V. Pierce, that is attached to John Pierce b.1772-North Carolina, d. 1865-Speedwell TN. is correct? John Pierce would have been too old.
He is my 5X Great Grandfather.
Thank You!

RE: Minnie Pope
This is probably from her death record and her real given name, I bet her stone has Minnie!

:) That is a doozy alright, I can see Wilhelmina, but always wonder if there has been a typing error when I see some of them. This is what is on the cemetery record, is it right? Your guess is as good as mine!

I am glad that I was help to you with memorials. I Love Genealogy and have been doing it for 35 years. So many people through the years have been so helpful to me and this is my way of paying it forward.
