Gravestone of Rebecca Allie Johnson Hawkins and James Hawkins: My great grandparents, buried at Whitley Cemetery, Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee.
Gravestone of Jerusha Bean Chitwood, 1810-1896: I found the location of this small family cemetery online and went to see it in person. It is located at the back of the old Red Boiling Springs Elementary School, now a public works building.
Gravestone of Monroy Hawkins, Whitley Cemetery, Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee: In early 2013, my cousin, Billy Bean, my Aunt Mildred Bean, my brother, Terry Grantham and I went to visit our family graves at Whitley Cemetery. We took along a garden saw, in order to remove a large shrub that had overgrown this grave of my great uncle. The stone was almost totally obscured by the shrub. Here the stone is revealed...another stone, hand inscribed, reads "Mother and Baby". I decided to leave it where it was as I couldn't locate a nearby grave which it might belong to.
Monroy Hawkins of Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee: Born in 1915, passed away in 1933, he was my great uncle, son of James Hawkins and Rebecca Allie Johnson Hawkins.
This is another, better image of Nancy Ann Donoho Slate. The photo must have been taken around 1910, as she passed away in 1914.
This photo was first given to me by my mother's cousin Geneva Roberts, who sparked my interest in genealogy.
