|Bio and Links|
I live in Memphis, TN. Both my parents were born in the area around the very small town of Finger in McNairy County in West Tennessee. I became interested in my ancestors in January 2010, when a church friend sent me an old family photo which was taken about 1892. Her great grandmother was in the picture and she thought one of the younger brothers in the photo might be my grandfather. He was! |
The photo was my great-grandparents and their 10 children (before the 11th was born) and all the names had been written on that old photo! That photo really got my attention and I wanted to find more about each one of my grandfather's siblings. Sadly, I did not get to visit with my grandparents very often and I am the only OLD person left in my family : ) so there is no one to remember, no one left to ask questions. So I started researching. I am so thankful someone had the wisdom to write all the names on that old photo. Without those names I would have had no place to start.
It is so important to write names and dates on your photos!! I have tried to do this through the years – regretfully I have missed many and have had to estimate or guess about them. I am in the process of scanning all my pictures to make a ‘family photo journal' CD so each of my children and grandchildren can have a copy. Now I will add our family genealogy records so they will know about their ancestors.
I was excited to learn about Findagrave where I can make lasting memorials to my ancestors so they will not be lost and forever forgotten to the ages. I am thankful for Findagrave and Family Search especially, and all their wonderful volunteers who have helped so much in my research.

I have ancestry.com and found the death certificate. As for the grave marker I'm still looking. I live in Arkansas and did go through the images that another researcher and I compiled several years ago. So hopefully I'll find the image in Ancestry.com website

I am grandson of Thomas Jefferson Stewart, who was son of William R. I live in Hardin County, Ky close to where Alexander was in early 1800s I believe.
There is 2 graves there with M C Burress & M. E. Burress.
There is only the name, no dates The tompstone is only about the size of a small brick

Sorry, but I can't copy the picture to Raymond McCombs memorial. I have attempted to do it, but just can't.
You are welcome to try it by copying, then pasting, which is what I tried to do. I can erase the memorial I posted if you like.
|Walter Schley||RE: Bernard Callaghan in Saint Patricks Cememetery|
No problem. It was different but I'm glad he is alive. Have a great day.
|David Agnew||RE: Mt. Pleasant in McNairy County|
Thanks for the reply. I have family still living in Bethel Springs and around the county. I have been gone for over 30 years but still consider it home.... I knew of Jewell Milford from Bethel. My uncle was principal at Bethel. I too have family all over McNairy County. Until last week, I had not been to the Chapel Hill Cemetery in about 40 year. I am going to check out the Facebook page for McNairy county history. Thanks for the lead.

I think i just saw that you had requested a photo from Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in McNairy County. Just so happens that I was in the area last week and looking for that cemetery, but never got to that cemetery. May be back in the area in a few weeks.... I also visited Chapel Hill Cemetery, also in McNairy County and saw some Milfords.... I just became a member of this site and find it to be very interesting and I really appreciate all the work that so many others have done. If I get back in the area will try to get picture you requested. I am originally from Bethel Springs.
