Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired from twenty-two years in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1990. Have lived in beautiful East Tennessee since 2004. My wife, Nikki Lynn, and I are interested in helping folks with their local cemetery picture requests.

I am a descendant of the Herrings of Madison County, Georgia. Four brothers (along with their half-brother, James W. Payton) enlisted in Company A, 16th GA Volunteer Infantry Regiment, CSA (Madison County Greys) in 1861/62. One brother, Henry L. Herring (my gg grandfather), survived. Also, their father, Alpheus Herring (age 51), joined Echol's Light Artillery, CSA when it was organized in July, 1862; he survived.

"Their bodies are buried in peace; but their name liveth for evermore." - Ecclus 44: 14

"The past isn't gone. It isn't even past."
William Faulkner

You left a 'military' note on my Cousin's Memorial page. Are you related to his father, who married into my Family?

Could you give me directions to the Epperson Cemetery in Grainger County? I'd like to go out and take pictures of all the stones.
