Winstead Family

Our very first genealogy trip. Where it all started. Old Mt Hermon cemetery in Bedford County, Tennessee.

Darrell took a shot of me trying to get closeups of the headstones,

then took one of the entire Winstead plot.

This was in 2000 and I hope the fence is still standing. 


Buried in this family plot are Samuel Winstead, Fannie Rees Winstead, their daughters Malissa Winstead Rees, her infant Granville Rees and husband Flem Rees and Lauretha Winstead Phelps.
Sam and Fannie were the parents of Nancy Carol Winstead Ownby, my great-great-grandmother.
