|Bio and Links|
I was born in Texas during WWII to a Texan mother and Mississippi father. I have searched graves from Virginia to Texas exploring their families and those of my Claiborne/Taylor/Lyle husband from Tennessee. Looking for Ashley and Allender for the mother of his children. I'm currently active with my Tynes, Rogers, Pounds, Williams, Robison folks from Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas, and would like to learn more about the Weatherman and Guynn families in Virginia and North Carolina, (families of my daughter-in-law).|
To me, the people I search are more than dates on stone - they are family waiting for someone to tell their stories. I enjoy linking them to their parents and children. Like a family reunion for the dead.
I am not able now to travel and search cemeteries myself, and therefore I am extremely pleased to see other volunteers finding my family. They are real heroes to me. I am always happy to transfer family members to more direct descendants, also. But I will not transfer to a "Society" for genealogical purposes only. They deserve to be honored by their own family.

|Eliza||RE: Wm Clarence Bedoit III|
I really appreciate all your time and effort. It's probably best to leave it alone at this point, because I'm almost certain he was cremated and ashes might be scattered or with a family member. He was a wonderful friend. I didn't know about his passing until six months after. I was totally shocked. Well at least I know he is not buried at this cemetery, thanks to your hard work.
Again, thanks for being so kind.

I would love to know if it was you who added the bio for Wm. H Godron? If so, are you related? I am researching the Godron and Leimbach families for a dear friend of mine...would love to talk.
|David Weise||RE: Jesse Gilbert|
Sounds like a busy time. I look forward to hearing from you at some point. I will try to see if I can find more specifics.
|David Weise||RE: Jesse Gilbert|
Just wondering if you had the opportunity to visit Pikeville? I hope all is well.
|Lois McDonald||RE: Turner family|
Looky here, looky there and woohoo found her! It is additive!
|Lois McDonald||Turner Family|
Okay think the family is all together. Let me know if I can help any further
|David Weise||RE: Finding Jesse Gilbert|
Thanks for taking a look. We don't know why he ended up in Bledsoe County since he grew up in McMinn County in Athens.
|David Weise||RE: Charles Henry Gilbert|
They divorced between 1872 and 1876 and she married Mark Dickinson Taylor in 1876 and had 3 more children. She is actually buried just down the road from where my mother-in-law (one of her great grand daughters) lives in Michigan. If you can find anything out that would be great. I recall that the websites I've seen indicate that there are no death records for the county. The death date of Jesse Gilbert is Dec 11, 1905 so if there was anything in a newspaper, that would be fantastic to get a copy. If I recall his pension file, on his parole from Camp Chase, he indicated that he had been pressed into Confederate service unwillingly. While he was born in McMinn County, his father and grandfather had emigrated there from Gettysburg, PA between 1837 and 1840. I am reading Shelby Foote's Civil War History and just finished the section discussing battles in Tennessee (Chattanooga, Chickamauga) where one of the objectives was to get support from the Union supporters in eastern Tennessee. It's fun how genealogy helps put history in perspective.
|Eliza||RE: William Bedoit|
Thank you for contacting me re: William Bedoit. I am curious to find out if Bill has a burial site. If it is possible for you to find out for me, I'd really appreciate it. From what I've observed though, it doesn't look as if he was buried near his parents, but then again, maybe he is.
He was born on July 17, 1957 and died on Sept. 3, 2007. His memorial number is #117037084.
Thank you much for your time and effort!

He married Martha Jones in Bledsoe County in 1890 and died in 1906. Elizabeth's letter indicated that he was buried on Walden's Ridge. Are you aware of a listing of burials for Bledsoe County?
