My Tune family is confirmed to be in the Haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1b5a, also known as R-SRY2627(also known as M167). The places of highest frequency for this group are Spain (esp. Catalonia), Western France, Cornwall, and Wales. This represents the Catalano-Gascon subclade of the Italo-Celtic group. I'm happy to share and accept corrections. If you should use any of my information listed here, please credit my database as the source.

    Tune, Will 1887 1957

    Did not see this tombstone
    Tune, Lora A 7 Jul 1907 2 Mar 1908 dau of TR & Beula Tune

    I was hopeful that the grave spacing would give some indication of where Wiley and Martha Tune might be buried.

    This is what I think, but just looking at the graves did not give much insight.

    There is a Wolf family buried on the next row, the one which Warene & Will Tune were on.
    On that row there was one very small homemade and totally unreadable stone, and one stone which looked like a footstone with only D. B. on it.
    Those two stones were near Will and Warene, but I associated them with the Wolf family.

    There is one empty space between Joseph and J. R. Tune.
    I suspect that is where Tune, Lora A 7 Jul 1907 2 Mar 1908 dau of T.R. & Beula Tune is buried.
    There is definitely a burial, very probably 2 burials, south of and next to J. R. & Luina Tune,
    but I think it is Will and Warene, even though their stone is on the next row. The indentions in the soil are still faintly visible, and appear connected to their stone.

    Indentions in the soil are not noticeable in any of the other burials.

    If I am wrong then this could be Wiley & Martha, all I can say with 100 % confidence is that there is no doubt there are burials there.

    There is plenty of empty space where they could be buried, but no evidence of graves other than what I mentioned next to J. R.

    The two Tune children's stones are marble and weathered, readable with slight difficulty. The other Tune stones look very good.

    The Tune plot started next to the road with J. C. Tune ends with J. R. & Luina Tune.

    The Wolf family row was next, at the end of which were the two unidentified stones, then Will & Warene Tune.
    There were no other markers or fieldstones. After the two rows where the Tunes are buried, there is a large space of at least ten yards or more where there are no graves.

    I thought about this all the way home, all night, and woke up with this in mind.

    If Will and Warene were using the plot next to J. R., why did they not put their stone there. Their stone is on the next row.
    There is no proof, or evidence, but it is my belief that the plot next to Will and Warene, based on the soil indentions, is occupied. My gut feeling is that maybe Wiley & Martha are buried there next to J. R.

    Hello:) I am writing for the first time and wondering whether anyone would have the answer to these questions about my grandfather's family heritage:
    (1.) Was George Wiley Tune(Bedford County, Tennessee 1800s)or any other family member in the Confederate Army?
    (2.) Has anyone traced as far back as the Revolutionary War to know if any descendants may have fought in it?
    (3.) Is there any American Indian in our family line and if so which tribe?
    Thank you so much, Nancy Foster (sunny California) ... I'm totally new to this-- all help is appreciated.

    Don't know if George Wiley Tune was in Civil War, probably not as he was b. 1815 and would have been too old but I do know he was a horse trader and moved often and far. His son, William Rencher Tune b. 1847 in Bedford Co., Tn. was also a trader... m. my Great Aunt Martha Isobel Spence in Howell Co., Mo. and later moved to Ok.
