Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Middle Tennessean happy to keep an eye out for relatives of others while pursuing my favorite hobby, searching for interesting grave shelters in small, rural cemeteries. Gravehouses, shelters, tents, rock tombs and cairns--they're all vanishing quickly, so will take them where I can find them, and appreciate your suggestions. The motherlode of rock tents/combs, the Cumberland Plateau, is my favorite stomping ground.

Thanks to all of you who have added photos to my memorials! I'm willing to fill photo requests in out-of-the-way places, as long as you're not in a hurry. If corrections are needed to memorials I've added, or if you would like additional information, please leave a message here or send email to my address.

You are welcome to use my photos for non-commercial purposes without obtaining my prior permission, as long as their use is within the rules and guidelines of, and provided the ownership source is clearly stated each time.

I am not directly related to many people for whom I've created memorials, so please feel free to ask for a transfer. If I've made a mistake on a memorial, and you can shed light on the subject, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Am always on the lookout for Berry (Hulme, Wiltshire, Vowell, Malone, Jefferson), Carothers (Turner, Potts, Nevins, Jordan, Whitsitt), Wilkerson (King, Barnes, Dowdy, Goodwin, Buchanan) and Rucker (all of the above, and everyone else in TN, KY, and VA).

It's a delight to be part of the awesome assembly that is Find A Grave!

RE: Isham Green Jenkins
That's quite alright...I used to live beside this cemetery before they moved it to where it is now. Am glad they moved it since now it looks to be taken care of more..The man who took care of it before they moved it was Joe Burns Sanford. In rented from him after his parents died and lived on the old homestead over 30yrs ago. I am sorry to see all the apartments there now.

Isham Green Jenkins
I was able to get by the Sanford Cemetery and take a picture of the tombstone for the above named person. I posted the picture but have noticed that the birth year is wrong. On the tombstone is states 1877 and you have 1879.

RUCKER sponsorship
Thanks you for sponsoring the Memorials of Ann Nancy Morton Rucker and the Rev. James Rucker. These were so graciously transferred to me by Gail Caraway.
You must be a Rucker descendant per your bio, are you on this Rev. James line?
I really appreciate your thought in Sponsoring these Memorials, but:
I am wondering if it is now necessary to Sponsor a Find a Grave Memorial, since Ancestry purchased Find A Grave a short while ago. Prior to that Ancestry had sold itself to a Foreign company. So seems to me that that company and Ancestry has plenty of money. At least they have many years worth of mine.

Sanders Grave Yard
I am interested in a Sanders Grave Yard. It is noted on a death certificate from 1934. Burial was for Sophia Williams Murray. She is black.
Is it possible that she is in the same cemetery in which you have entries? Her parents were John Williams and Dixie Perry Williams.
Where is the Sanders Cemetery?
Your help is appreciated,

Sarah and George Tucker
Thanks so much for the photo for Sarah and George Tucker's monument. It is a very interesting monument. I don't think I have seen one quite like it. I really like it. Thanks for going back. I really appreciate it.

Hi Harriet
Thanks so much for the photo and the information about Mary's grave site. I really appreciate you going out there.

Last week, I was passing through and did stop at the cemetery but only had a very short time to look. I did find my direct ancestors William and Mary Cotton though.

I made pages for Mary's grandfather Henry Cotton and his two wives Susan and Mary and Susan and placed photo requests. I am only assuming they are also in Leiper's Fork Cemetery but do not know that. Has anyone done a complete index of that cemmetery? I noticed there were quite a few very old almost unreadable markers there and wondered whether anyone has already studied those. Thanks again.
