Uncle Arnold and his daughter and his granddaughters

Arnold Seagraves with his daughter(Annette) and granddaughters
Pictures e-mailed to me by my sister Deanna.
*Thank you Deanna* Posted by Hello
Arnold's party was a smashing success, says my sister Deanna.
A few people stood up and made some nice speeches, and then Mike Seagraves stood up
said something too, then played his guitar and sang a song he wrote, for his Grandpa Arnold.
A few family members, had done genealogy studies, and had made a family tree,
and brought them.
(I like to have a copy, hint hint.)
And of course there was a wonderful meal, and then nice cake(yummy).
A lot of plans were made to visit one another, which is always good.
(We're family we should make an effort to keep in touch!)
And a lot of family members said, that they like to have a family reunion soon.
On a side note: I'm working on a family news letter,
and I will be sending out questionnaires soon;
to all the family members that I have address via snail mail,
and I may e-mail some as well.
If your a Seagraves family member, and would like to be on that list;
please leave your address here, this blog is connected
with my e-mail which I check almost daily.
Keep checking back, as I will post more on this later.

Segraves Family cemetery--destroyed

I have some sad news to impart, dear family.

The Waugh-Segraves family cemetery was destroyed in recent years. The cemetery was located in Wildersville-Yuma road in the old 9th District, Henderson County, Tennessee. The land is now owned by the Peterson family since 2003.

Did you notice the spelling of the family name? Segraves not Seagraves? That's because this cemetery dated back to as late as the late 1800. It's too bad it is gone now, so much information gone.

There has been an effort to save some of the names and dates from the cemetery.
Here are a few as follows:

Crabb, Susan P., 1832-1910

Laws, Martha "Patsy," 1814-26 Feb 1889
Husband#1: Sherrod Segraves
Husband#2: William Pitt Waugh
Husband#3: Benjamin Phillips
Husband#4: Stephen Thomason
Children: 1:Moses Segraves 2: William pitt

( I guess Patsy was a little hard
on husbands?)
