Digging up more relatives

Some of you know that I went to Nashville this past weekend for some family fun.  I left on Thursday morning and returned Monday night.  I saw some distant cousins I’ve never met, a few of us brain stormed on where to go with our research, I saw some graves and some Nashville sites.  Here are the highlights:

It seems that everyone raised, bred and raced horses back then.
