Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a dedicated & fanatic family historian & have been on THE QUEST since 1955. I can concentrate on my ancestors but get easily side-tracked by in-laws & the cousins of cousins of cousins, if you know what I mean, & if you love family history as much as I do, then you do know!


"As we think well of ourselves, let us remember that we are standing on the shoulders of the generations before, for if they had not come, we would not be here."



"A US military veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'"


By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

134534301 Henry H Jackson and wife 134534640 Tennie Hayes Jackson.
They have 2 children buried at springhill. Not sure where. I could not find headstones. So they are probably in UM graves. Since you added their parents will you add them.

1, Bryant Lee Jackson born 26 Oct 1899 Ky. died 15 Jun 1950 Davidson co., Tn divorced.

2. Zenia R Jackson Brown born 12/30/1902 Kentucky died 11/9/1927 Davidson co Tn. married to S C Brown. She left 3 small children who were raised by their Jackson Grandparents. Children were: Bryan Lee Brown, Cladie Jean Brown, Billie Colleen Brown.
Billie married a cousin of mine.

I added information about her husband, who died in 1912. He does not have a Findagrave memorial that I can link her to.

Since the dates for birth/death are correct in her memorial, it already shows how old she was when she died so I didn't think I needed to add that info.

This man's name is Clifton W. Wallace - mistake on his Death Certificate ... His Father was Eddie H. Wallace.

He was married to Hilda Mae Stewart, buried at Riverview Cemetery in Montgomery County as Hilda Moore (she married after Clifton's death).

Hi Syd,
I noticed you have a duplicate for Sterling J. Devers. You have a wonderful posting in Ryes Chapel Cemetery, and there is another one in Greenwood. I just scanned an obituary from a large collection I have, and it shows him buried in Greenwood. So I posted it in Greenwood site. The Greenwood site doesn't have much information compared to what you have posted on the other site. Check it out you might want to get with the Greenwood site owner and share your info.
