Bio and Links
I'm retired! People (who haven't retired) wonder what a retiree does to keep from getting bored. Well, one spends the "extra" time taking longer to do things, re-doing things several times, remembering what to do and how, trying to balance the budget, taking pills and trying to figure out this new darn techology!

I live in Tennessee and work with my wife mostly on my Powell, Woosley and Gerron lineages, most of whom ended up in Tennessee or Alabama.

RE: Wrong inf on bio of Wm E Woosley died 1856
Thanks for responding so quickly and thank you for suggesting my next step. Emma Viola Woosley was a daughter of Nathan Columbus Woosley, and she was my great grandmother but she died long before I was born. My grandfather lived in New Mexico and Texas and late in life Calif, so his children and grandchildren never really knew any of the Woosleys. They are a great family to search for though. David Milbourn and Emma had a very large road building company. She did all the cooking for the crews. They lived in tents and I have pictures of the huge conastoga wagons they used to haul dirt in grading for the road beds. It was a hard life.

Wrong inf on bio of Wm E Woosley died 1856
Wayne, Since Annie Phillips was the person doing the bio on Wm E Woosley b. 1812 died Apr 1856 and she has died; I don't know how to request a correction from the cemetery itself, I thought perhaps you could correct the information, or tell me how.
The bio says Wm E. was the son of Nathan Columbus Woosley & Julia. *Nathan was William's SON. William E Woosley's parents were Elijah Woosley & Nancy Cheshire. This is at the Hastings Campground Cemetery in Shelbyville, Bedford, Tenn.... guess the new name for the cemetery now is New Hope Cemetery
Certainly would appreciate your help.

RE: Peppers' photo
How sweet! Thank you so much. I did notice that all the markers had the name spelled Peppers with the "s" on the end, at least at this cemetery. I will begin photographing this cemetery probably next week. Let me know if you want any other photos. Maria

Hi, Wayne :) Thanks for the info--I have added it. I noticed on her death certificate that her mother was listed as "Delida Irwin". We are getting another 6" of snow as we speak. Grrrr! Take Care. Kathy

Find A Grave would not allow me to post the headstone photo as her memorial already has maximum photos allowed without being sponsored. If you could remove one photo or sponsor I will be happy to post photo.
