The 1860 Census for Henderson County, Tennessee, taken Sept 6, 1860, shows
a woman named N.E. Bedwell, age 22, and her daughter, N.J.W. Bedwell, age 7/12,
living with A.J. McCallum, age 42, a tenant farmer, and his family. Is her maiden
name McCallum? What Bedwell was she married to? Could it have been Wesley Bedwell?
Note: these McCollums may be buried in Ebenezer Cemetary (see below).
Henderson County, TN Cemetaries: EBENEZER CEMETERY: "This is a church
cemetery on Ebenezer Road near its intersection with Ebenezer Church Road. This
cemetery is old. The earliest death date on a marker is in the 1840s, but the
cemetery may date to the circa 1820 settlement of the area. (Carved markers generally
were not used in this area until the 1870s.) There are many unmarked and fieldstone
marked graves here, perhaps over 100. Many older markers are weathered and are
unreadable or only can be read in the most favorable lighting. Try sunny winter
afternoons when the sun is relative low on the horizon and off to the side. Good
light is necessary for reading the older McCollum, Middleton, and White markers.
I did not note the date I first recorded this cemetery. It was in 1994, probably
was May 16, and it was cloudy and rainy. Updated December 16, 2001, a bright
sunny afternoon. -- Anita Webb, Alicia Adcox, and Blanch Buck recorded this cemetery
circa 1975. Their record appears in Henderson County, Tennessee Cemetery Inscriptions
(Memphis, R. H. Harris, 1976), Vol. III, pp. 637-640."
