I have been doing genealogy since my dad got me started in 1979. I have too many family names to list them here. I will be glad to transfer any memorials I manage, if they are not my close family. If you see any mistakes I've made, please let me know so they can be corrected.|

|Linda||RE: Samuel & Susan Williams|
I do not believe anyone has kept up with this cemetery in a very long time. It is very overgrown with trees and bushes. We had to cut down small trees, thorns, and shrubs to get to the stones we found yesterday. Cattle has been in the cemetery at one time and the most of the stones that are left are lying on the ground. There were several field stones that were marking a few graves. Two big trees had fallen down and may be over some graves close to the logging road. We did find stones for some of the Williams children.

Planning this weekend to hit a few places on your list , hopefully make a dent it in.
|Christine Taylor||RE: Carden grave photos|
You're very welcome, Ms. Pedersen. I have a list of the photo requests at Sunset, and I will work on them as I have time.
|Christine Taylor||Carden grave photos|
My fiancÚ and I photographed the following Cardens for you today at Sunset Cemetery in Clinton, Tennessee: Annie Elizabeth Carden, Bernese Carden, Hazel Carden, Marie Carden, Ora Franklin Carden, Wade H. Carden, and William Elvis Carden. There is an Agnes L. Carden buried in the same family plot, so I photographed her grave as well.
Sunset does a lousy job of maintaining the cemetery. They keep the grass cut down, but they make no effort to uncover or edge around the flat markers. You literally have to tap the ground with something metal to find the stones and then excavate around them. We did the best we could with the photos. Also, I have transcribed the text of the markers in the captions.
|Samantha||Cicerones in the Italian Cemetery|
I see you left flowers on a few Cicerone memorials in the Italian Cemetery, Colma, CA.
I am now working on getting all the memorials in that cemetery updated after years of sitting abandoned. If you had sent additional information to Retaggio about any memorial there and you still have the info, please send it to me and I will take care of it.
Have a great weekend, Samantha :)
