Hennessee Cemetery |
On a more personal note re the Hennessee cemetery, as a young boy, I swear I recall remembering seeing the stone-monument of our Tennessee progenitor, James Hennessee, 1766-1851 which is no longer there. It was white stone and about 6’ tall. I vividly remember marveling at the 1700’s number. It’s unbelievable that someone could have stolen it…
