|Gloria Tune||Tune Cemetery-Bedford, Tennessee|
Just saw your four photo requests for Tunes in this cemetery. Sadly, this old family burial ground has been destroyed & there are no longer any stones or evidence of it. Thank goodness it was surveyed and added to the cemetery books before the current owner desecrated it!! Here's the info that was sent to me:
"On Sunday October 12, 2008, my research friend and I decided to find the grave sites of my ancestors John Tune, his wife Mary Cooper and my other g..grandfather Enoch Williams. This Private cemetery had been censused by several of the Historical volunteers in Bedford county several years previously and was listed in the Cemetery Book of Bedford County, TN. Copying the way from the book, and obtaining directions from the local fire department, we set out to find the Tune cemetery located 1/2 mile north of Whiteside Baptist Church on Midland Road.....northwest of Shelbyville, TN.
We looked, and looked, and measured and looked some more. Finally, we stopped at several houses in the vicinity that we knew the cemetery had to be located. We found the man who had previously owned the land and kept the small cemetery cleaned. He received permission for all of us to drive back to the cedar tree grove where the burial site was located. Imagine our surprise, and consternation when we found that the new owner had removed all tombstones! The only things left of the cemetery was the bottom block of a tombstone being used as a mounting block for getting on his horses and the cedar trees.
Such a waste!!! Vandalism of it's purest form. At least the cemetery was recorded before the new owner demolished it(sometime around 2005)."

|Joseph Mann||Brocato (90112161)|
I took a photo of the grave location for Brocato. According to his obituary, his name is Frank P. Brocato. He was the husband of Frances Cecile Poretto Brocato. His actual death of death was June 23, 1935. He was originally buried at St. Vincent de Paul Cemetery.
I requested the appropriate changes to his memorial.

I asked a couple of people with
little luck. Sorry.
|Gaylon Powell||RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 117168246|
Yes, his wife was my gg grandfather's first cousin.
|Lisa Mac||Robert Lee Caswell ~ Shannon Rose Hill|
Just to let you know that I was able to confirm with the cemetery here in Fort Worth, Texas (Shannon Rose Hill) yesterday that he is not buried on their grounds. But, after a little searching, I was able to find him at Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier, California (Section 4, Vista Lawn, Lot 7776, Space 4), so you may want to update his memorial with his actual burial place in California. Also, would you like a copy of the Texas Death Certificate for Robert Caswell? If so, I can upload it to his memorial, or I can send it to you... just let me know, I do not like to upload death certificates without asking first.

He wanted to visit his sister, Elizabeth Groff. She was living there and her husband worked for the railroad so they arranged the visit. He died there. It was not affordable to bring him back to Missouri. He is buried next to her. Her husband is buried at Buck Elk Cemetery here in Summerfield MO
