Update provided by Ray Dozier, Sr., December, 2008:

I have recently found a cemetery that you have on your web site.  Someone researched a cemetery in Gallatin,TN on Gibbs Ln. They gave the name "McLin";  the actual name of the cemetery is the "Walker Cemetery".  The land the cemetery sits on is part of my mother and my aunt's property, Diana Dozier-Parks and Betty Sprouse.  Some of the markers are just stone markers, and there is what looks like was once a little family plot -  a circle of stones that could have been 4 small walls. Some markers you can make out the names and dates.  Here are the names and dates I came up with:

Catherine E. McLin    B  July 11, 1809 - D  Nov.7, 1849
