baconstone
baconstone
One side has the Bacon information and the other side has Hartman information. Not certain who placed this here or when. Dicey Bacon Humphreys may have placed this stone. Now who is buried here? If the stone is correct then some families have been handed down wrong. If the information is wrong especially about the two Isaac's I can see why they might have gotten mixed up....they were living in the same area. They named their children many of the same names making it harder to keep them separated.

James Keebler Cemetery
James Keebler Cemetery
Two tombstones are located under a cedar tree near the pond to the left of the house at 632 Hales Chapel Road, Jonesborough. The burials are located to the right of the house near the intersection of Shaddon Road and Hales Chapel Road - Keebler's Crossroads. The exact location of the graves could not be determined since the tombstones had been moved. Over fifty years ago, after obtaining permission from Mr. Dude Keebler of Limestone, the previous owner cleared off the cemetery and kept the tombstones as directed by Mr. Keebler.

Kuykendall Cemetery
Kuykendall Cemetery
The Kuykendall Cemetery mentioned in the Nashville Cemetery Records is located inside this culp of trees. The cows have knocked over several of the markers and it is heavily overgrown with vines and brambles so one must be careful when walking around in it. This view shows two tent graves on the left. Three more Kuykendall headstones have been set up against the tree after being knocked over by cows. The headstone for Newton Cannon Kuykendall has been knocked off its base, but is resting right beside it and can be read. Two more headstones are to the right in the photograph and are still standing. Several flat markers are under the vines and can be found fairly easily by stepping gently.

Search: In Title, Description & Body Text
Media Collection:    Thumbnails Only or Descriptive View                     

  • Most searches look for the search string in the Title, Description, and Body Text fields.
    In a sense, all three fields are descriptions of a media item.
    1. Title is the shortest, and
    2. Description is usually no more than a few lines long.
    3. Body Text can supply additional information about the media item, and can have rich formatting (i.e. headings, paragraphs, bold text, colors, etc.).
  • If a search string begins with 'owner:', then this program searches for the rest of the search string in the Media Item's Owner field.
    For example, a search string of 'owner:Robinson' would find all media items for which 'Robinson' occurs in the owner field.

Which database fields are searched
The media items that are attached to people and places in this database are organized into 'Collections' (aka 'Media types'). This is a logical organization based on the information in the file, not a physical organization based on the file type, e.g. images, PDF files, Word documents, or HTML documents.
Yes, HTML documents (typically containing stories or research notes) that are not a fundamental part of the TNG application can be considered to be 'media items', and can be attached to people and places just like images and other files.

The most common media collections in TNG application are:

  • Photos of people and places. Almost all photos would be be in .jpg files, though other file types such as .png or .gif may be used.
  • Documents - This collection typically contains formal documents such as birth, death, and marriages licenses. The files in this collection may be scanned images, or perhaps PDF, HTML, or Microsoft Word files that (may) contain scanned images and that (probably) contain some annotation of those images.
  • Histories - Stories about a person or family, or about a particular place and time. Just as with documents, these files may be scanned images, or PDF, HTML, or Word (etc.) documents. Note that there is some natural ambiguity in the distinction between Documents and Histories. For instance, a Will might be considered either a Document or a History. (One file can't be both).
  • Headstones - These are mostly likely to be photographs. Headstone photographs are typically kept into a different collection from Photos because TNG has features that associate Headstone photos with cemeteries and burial plots.

Other fairly widely-used media collections in TNG web sites include

  • Recordings and Videos - These are probably self-explanatory.
  • Special cases of Documents such as Censuses, Birth Records, Marriage Records, Death Records, Military, and the like.
