PLEASE READ BEFORE REQUESTING CORRECTIONS...... In the past I have been pretty easy going about adding things to memorials. In the past and recently I have found where incorrect information has been added to a memorial causing problems. My intent has always been for some family member to request transfer and add information themselves. THUS, I WILL NOT ADD, CORRECT OR CHANGE A MEMORIAL IN ANY WAY. IF YOU WISH TO ADD OR CORRECT A MEMORIAL THEN PLEASE REQUEST A TRANSFER. You will find that I have no ego about transferring a memorial. This is much easier and less stressful to me. The only other alternative is for me to spend hours deleting memorials as that is what I will do. I will transfer or delete the memorial in question. I have done many hours of work setting this all up. I don't want any glory. I want what I have always wanted... people to be remembered and the memorial to end up in the hands of a family member.

Thank You very much for your work. Without you and others like yourself I don't know if finding all my family would be possible.

I am a descendant of John M. & Theodocia "Docia" Baxter Ramsey. And doing extensive research on our family.

I'm working on documenting all the family members through Find a Grave site and trying to "link" them all together. We haven't been able to travel there ourselves, but because of persons like you we are able to "visit" and "pay our respects".
Thank You, Again, For All You Do. :)

Hi, Mike. Thank you for adding the photo of the tombstone of the brother of my great great grandmother Margaret Rowan Cooper to his memorial. May I have your permission to copy the photo for my family tree. Bill is buried in the Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Cades Cove and when I was there last summer, I was unable to get a photo of his stone.

RE: Fred Spradlin # 65494376
Mike, I am so sorry. My adamant message was strong, but certainly not meant to offend you, or anyone for that matter, only to implore you to make a correction. Certainly a lesson learned for me. I sincerely apologize for having offended you.

Fred Spradlin # 65494376
Problem here. This Fred Spradlin is the son of Charlie (yes, Charlie) Edward Spradlin # 65494362 and Nola M. Hawkins Spradlin # 65494366. His siblings are Roy Spradlin (1916-1989) and Ralph Spradlin (1917-1985). Fred was listed in 1940 census for Loudon Co, TN with his parents Charlie and Nola. He was listed with his parents and brothers in the 1930 census for Blount County, TN.
Please contact me if I have not convinced you to straighten this out!!!

One more thing: Bakers Creek Cemetery is a "family cemetery" for one line of the Spradlins. Edith Jane Baker (Edy Jane, Edie Jane, etc) married Thomas Jess Spradlin and had 6 children: Charlie Edward 1891-1952; Allie Mae 1895-1979; William Floyd 1899-1968; John 1901-1938; Carie Arthur 1905-1981; and Luther Lee 1907-1983 most of whom are buried at Bakers Creek, as are some of their children. The other family you list as parents of Fred are not a "Bakers Creek" family.

He is NOT the son of Mary Caledonia Robbins Spradlin (43346541)!

Thank You very much for your work. Without persons like you indeed the small, "out of the way" family cemeteries would be lost forever.
My husband is a descendent of Green B Payne and Abigail. I'm working on documenting all the family members in this cemetery and trying to "link" them on Find A Grave, to help others understand the family ties. We've not been able to travel there ourselves, yet because of persons like you we are able to "visit" and "pay our respects".
Thank You, Again, For All You Do !!
