I did run across some Deadmons, some of whom you had just done memorials on. They now have photos. When I get thru with all the photos from that section, there might be more.

RE: Greenlawn Memorial Cem
No, I did not see their graves when I was there. Will look for them next time I am there.

Hi Judy! Thanks for the edits to Opal's memorial! Wanted to check and see if you are related or connected to her in any way? If so, I'd be happy to transfer her to your care. I do that for any memorials that I've created unless they are closely related to me. I'd rather family… any family… maintain their memorials! Just let me know and if you come across others that I've created that you'd like to maintain just ask! I'm working on Fairview Cemetery in Albemarle for the next few months… I've lots of family buried there and I'd like to find them all… I'm taking lots of photos along the way so you may find more you'd like to maintain! Take care and blessings, Dana

RE: Rebecca Roland
Rebecca White was the daughter of John L. White, not his wife. Here are the census returns showing her in her birth family:

1850 Census: Overton County,TN, dist. 7, p. 82B, 2 September, 1850: 203/
White, John, age 45, farmer, - / 200, b. TN;
Tempa, age 40 [b. 1810], b. TN
Sarah, 23;
William, 18;
Rebecca, 17;
Edmund, 14;
Mary, 12;
Thomas, 10;
James, 8;
John, 1.

1860 Census: Waverly, Morgan County, IL:
John White: 50, laborer, b. TN
Rebecca, 26, b. TN
Hiram, 5, b. IL -neither child in school-
Andrew, 2, b. IL

In 1860, they are living next door to Alexander Follis' parents: Jeremiah and Priscilla Follis. Alexander is not found in the census and appears to have died.

Have you verified the marriage date of Alexander to Rebecca White? It would appear that Alexander did not survive to 1862, however, even if they were did marry after the 1860 census return, it does not mean that the boys were not Alexander's sons, as they may have been born out of wedlock, but then legitimized by the subsequent marriage.

Census takers were usually careful about family names. If Rebecca White Follis returned to her father's home after Alexander died, her name could be expected to be written as Follis, Rebecca. However, if they never married, then her name would remain White, as would her children.

I can understand that once Rebecca married Christian Rowland, her sons may well have taken his surname. That would especially be true if they had never been named Follis, but just White.

John L. White married Temperance Lyon c. 1825 in Overton County, Tennessee. She survived his 1861 death by several decades as his widow. In 1860, in an effort to maximize income, she took their two youngest children to nearby Christian County, IL, and ran a boarding house for a bit, leaving her husband, John, in the care of her eldest single daughter, Rebecca. However, after John's death in 1861, she returned to the White farmstead and remained there until her own death, sometime after the 1880 census.
