Bio and Links
Bio Photo A Middle Tennessean happy to keep an eye out for relatives of others, my hobby is 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 and Highland Rim, are my favorite stomping grounds.

Thanks to all of you who have added photos! 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'm not directly related to many people for whom I've created memorials, so please feel free to ask for a transfer. If I have 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, Menees), Wilkerson (King, Barnes, Dowdy, Goodwin, Buchanan) and Rucker (all of the above, plus Bumpass, Morton, 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: Lucy Corbitt
Hello Harriet,

I just found an obituary in The Tennessean dated Thursday March 2, 1854 stating:

At the residence of Mr James Corbitt, in this city, (Nashville) on Tuesday night last, of Dropsy, Mrs. Lucy Corbitt. The diseased was a kind mother, an affectionate sister and a sincere friend. She bore her distressing illness with woman's fortitude, and calmly laid down her life resigned to the will of her Creator.

The time period seems to fit well with Capt James Corbett moving from Montgomery Co, to Nashville. Any thoughts?

John Rains Cemetery
I'm so excited about the cemetery! I don't feel like I had much to do with it. I found you, or maybe you found me ;), & then things just got rolling! I'll never forget the day my grandmother made me walk over there from Krystal's so that she could tell me the story of her grandfather's land. Funny that none of my family ended up being in the cemetery considering. Thank you for everything you did to make this happen & for keeping me updated!
