Tune Family Cemetery-Halifax County, Virginia
Hi Shelly,

Thank you for the email you sent regarding the burial location of my 5th g. grandfather Travis Tune, Find A Grave Memorial# 60902517.

While I do know about the Tune Family Cemetery on the North side of SR 753 between Rodden & Meadville, just east of Halifax Baptist Church, Halifax County, Virginia, I have no confirmed burial record that proves he is buried there.

As per the times, he may also have been buried on his farm, so rather than assign him a particular cemetery, I just left that note.

I see you have the Phelps family in your research bio. Travis' son Kester married a Nancy W. Phelps in 1813 in Halifax. I have her parents as John & Lucy Watthall Phelps.

Thanks again,

RE: wale family tree.
My great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Wale daughter of William Landry Wale and Mary Louise Lemelle. Live here in Louisiana and have most info of the Wale family that settled here. My problem has been the family of Charles Henry Wale son of Charles Patrick Wale. Have been told they relocated in or around British Columbia. Would love to talk to you

Hi Shelly,I just wanted to let you know that I had did the photos to all of the stones in the cemetery.There are no other stones left.The cemetery is in very bad condition,overgrown with a thick ivy and VERY hard to find and to get in to.That is why I did all of the pictures in one day.
You can leave your requests up that is fine,but I just thought that I would let you know about the place and I am positive that the stones you are looking for are no longer there.-Mary

Ester Ann Crum
Hello Shelly,
I found Anna Crum grave and will send the photo to you directly. There isn't an Ester Ann Crum that I could locate. There is also a findagrve record for Anna Crum, possibly a duplicate. The dates are very similar. Sooo.... I'll send the photo I took to you and you can see if they are one and the same. You may use the photo as though you took it with all rights.

Your 3 photo requests-Tune Cemetery, Bedford, Tennessee
Hi Shelly,

I hate to be the bearer of sad news, but this cemetery was destroyed a number of years ago. I found this out when I had also requested photos. Here's what the woman had to say:

"On Sunday October 12, 2008, my research friend and I decided to find the grave sites of my ancestors John Tune, his wife Mary Cooper and my other g..grandfather Enoch Williams. This Private cemetery had been censused by several of the Historical volunteers in Bedford county several years previously and was listed in the Cemetery Book of Bedford County, TN. Copying the way from the book, and obtaining directions from the local fire department, we set out to find the Tune cemetery located 1/2 mile north of Whiteside Baptist Church on Midland Road.....northwest of Shelbyville, TN.
We looked, and looked, and measured and looked some more. Finally, we stopped at several houses in the vicinity that we KNEW the cemetery had to be located. We found the man who had previously owned the land and kept the small cemetery cleaned. He received permission for all of us to drive back to the cedar tree grove where the burial site was located Imagine our surprise, and consternation when we found that the new owner had removed ALL tombstones! The only things left of the cemetery was the bottom block of a tombstone being used as a mounting block for getting on his horses and the cedar trees.
Such a waste!!! Vandalism of it's purest form. At least the cemetery was recorded before the new owner demolished it(sometime around 2005).
Fourth great granddaughter of John Tune and Mary Cooper whose daughter Sara Ann married Madison Monroe Williams, son of Enoch Williams.....also buried in the Tune cemetery."

I'll never understand why anyone would demolish an old family cemetery like this one.....heartbreaking!

Mary Cooper Tune's husband John was the brother of my William Tune, both sons of Travis & Frances Tune of Halifax County, Virginia.

Keithly @ stl Calvary
I am sorry but his grave basically, unmarked.
It only has the 'grave' number marker.
