My name is Sarah Alexina (Lexie) Henry Van Pelt and I grew up on the George McNutt farm 5 miles east of downtown Knoxville, Tennessee along the river. George McNutt settled the farm in the late 1700's and direct decendants have been on the farm since. There is a McNutt Family Cemetery on the farm. I have the information on all the family members buried there.
Other family members are buried in both Old Grey Cemetery, Lynnhurst Cemetery and Highland Memorial Cemetery. As I have time I will be adding these as well.
I have taken photos in Hillcrest Cemetery in Augusta, GA. I am not related to any of the ones I have added in Georgia so if one is your relative please let me know and I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.
I would be happy to share information on my family. Anyone may use any picture that I have taken. I'm more than happy to contribute.
RE: Highland I went over to Highland and took a photo of the Ingrams so they are off the list. I also took pictures of the right side of Section 9 around the curve. And the upper right quadrant of the Crucifixion garden. I will work on them tonight and tomorrow. I am relaxing for a couple of weeks and then probably go to New Gray. If I should go to Highland, I will give you a heads up. -Diana
RE: Photos Basically, I look for requests but end up with a hundred or so random photos. I hate to bother the people at the office so I try to memorize the last names and walk an area hoping to stumble upon someone. I'm going tomorrow to take photos of the Ingrams. I was adding photos of some Ingrams that I had taken and clicked on Mae Ingram by mistake. There was a request for her. I sent an apology to the person wanting a photo and kind of promised that I would get it tomorrow. They are in one of the mausoleums. How do you work the cemetery? Do you ask the office for locations? Tomorrow may be my last day for awhile. If for some reason it isn't, I'll be glad to give you a heads up. _Diana
John D Andrews Hello Lexi , My name is Robin. I am John D Andrews (119269897) Niece. I died before I was born. His wife was like my second mother. I would like if you wouldn't mind transferring this to me. His youngest son past away last week and he wanted his ashes to be with his dad. I am wanted to add him to find a grave as well. along with being connected to his father and mother. I still need to created hers because she was created as well. Thank you
McNutt Family Dear Lexie, Thank you so very much for offering all of this information. I am a descendant of James McNutt and Mary Sharp. I believe James to be related to George McNutt (who m. Isabella Callison) in some way, but have not been able to figure it out yet. I manage a number of DNA profiles of McNutt descendants, and at least one of them matches a descendant of George). I would love to know if other McNutt descendants have tested their yDNA or autosomal DNA. Cathy cathywoodosborn - gmail
RE: White McNutt I posted a picture for Rosa Chamberlin. I was at the cemetery the other day and looked for Anna Haas McNutt but didn't see her. I haven't been through the entire cemetery, so maybe I will come across her some day. Debi
RE: White McNutt I found Rosa Chamberlin, wife of N. W, McNutt. You can't see the lettering very well. Anna Haas is already in find a grave. She is buried with Hermann Haas. Does this help? I haven't been to the cemetery in a while. I still have pictures to upload before I get more. Let me know if you need anything else.
local graves Hi Lexie, In the Augusta area are Newman, Tucker, and a little bit of Groover and Pritchard. Do you ever go to Aiken County? I have a lot of gaps over there for Jack's and Barbara's relatives. That would include: Taylor, Cushman, Woodward, Odom, Dunkley, Shipes, Padgett and Hair. Most of my mom's relatives are in south Georgia and my dad's too except a line from the Charleston area. Some of the Groovers and Pritchards moved to Augusta though.
RE: Gannon/Hillcrest When it comes to an obituary, "a native of..." generally means born there. By the same token, the city byline doesn't mean where they died, but it means where they resided. A friend who used to work at a newspaper told me this. That's one reason I don't use the byline city as the place of death, unless the obit specifically states they died in the same city.
