Benjamin Truman Hall 1825-1899. Do you have a copy of the obituary used for this memorial. I have a copy of a different obituary (text added to memorial), but the excerpt you added had some different wording. Could you please email me a copy of the obituary, and any information about the newspaper and date you might have. Thanks so very much. Marie email:

RE: Harley Deal
Go to the memorial page I maintain on him, there is a newspaper article and an image of those shoes. I am not a relation so would happily transfer management to any Deal family members who would like to have it under their management. Helen

Deal query
I forgot to ask if you are also related to Harvey Deal? I remember him while growing up in Dickson and his enormous shoes being on display at Nicks Hardware store on Main Street.

RE: Deal Road, Mark Garton Cemetery
How awesome that you are a Deal and Garton descendant! I will send a message to the person who is researching his ancestor in this cemetery and get the name to you. Thanks for the hint on how to look at the inventory of all burials in the Mark Garton Cemetery, I recall that this person was listed on either an old TN death certificate or from data passed on through the family history as being buried there, cannot recall the specifics except that he is from an old, established family who lived in Charlotte at one time. Have a great evening! Helen

RE: Chart for Mark Garton
Well, you did an awesome job on that 'Tree of Life', it really honors your ancestors. No, I am not a Garton descendant, though have looked through that particular cemetery for an individual for another contributor who lives out of state. (Cannot recall the name right now but he is pretty sure his GGG-Grandfather is buried there). There is a request for a headstone image from that cemetery and I was just scrolling through to see who all was being honored and I saw your Garton pages. I actually live not too far from the site, Deal Rd takes me to the Hwy 96 then to the interstate. Love the scenery for the farm it rests in. Helen

I was looking over the various memorials you had established for your Garton ancestors, wow! Lots of siblings and children to many of them! That colorful chart on Mark Garton, Sr's page caught my eye, is this something that you created? Very well done! Helen

Thanks Chris,
I am working on to build a family tree for my son's. Their grandfather is George Peel Hanlin (grandson of William Crawford Hanlin). As time permits I will add what I can to this site also.

Thanks for the info on John F and Ruby. I love your website, too.

I am related distantly to Ruby Mai Garton Deal via her uncle Dickson, who is my greatgrandfather.

I appreciate all your work for "the cause"!!
