    Knoxville News Sentinel, 4 October 2009 - square brackets in original; braces are my insertions:

    {funeral home adds: "The vibrant life of..."} MODLIN, ANNE YOAKUM - age 95, ended unexpectedly in her apartment at Colonial Hills Retirement Center in Johnson City, TN, Thursday, October 1, 2009. Anne was born in Lone Mountain, TN, November 4, 1913. She was the daughter of Mallie Virginia Walker and Joseph Sherman Yoakum, who desired for her a "city education." To accomplish this, she lived with her older sister Lenore Mitchell attending Knoxville schools, graduating from Knoxville High and the University of Tennessee. Summers were spent on the farm with her parents and her beloved horse 'Bird'.

    After receiving her B.A. degree from U.T., she taught first grade at Minders Elementary School in Knoxville, and shortly married her college sweetheart H.L. Modlin (who died in 1984) Residing in Yakima, Washington and Little Rock, Arkansas after their wedding, the Modlins returned to Knoxville, after WWII, in 1946 with their two daughters. Anne continued to live in Knoxville until 2007. She was very active in many activities; DAR (where she was a 50 year member) to the Taliluna Garden Club, and golf at Cherokee Country Club, where she had a 'hole in one'. She was a very passionate person. Besides her family, the great loves of her life were the University of TN [Go Vols]; the Republican Party [she was campaigning for John McClain {sic} in the 2008 election]; the Alpha Delta Pi sorority (being an advisor to the college girls keeps me young), and Second Presbyterian Church, where she was a member for 63 years. Except for being 'tight with tips', she was a very generous person with her time, her magnolia tree, and especially, with the scholarship fund she established at the UT College of Business in honor of her husband.

    She loved to laugh and delighted in the outdoors and in all things social. She was last seen dancing the Saturday before she died-with her impish blue eyes twinkling. Anne is survived by her daughters and their husbands: Anne M. Burkhardt (Nat), and Betsy M. Beaver (Dick); seven grandchildren: Libby Burkhardt Staub (Richard), Susan Burkhardt Curtis (Jeff), Laura Burkhardt Vik (Jorgen), Richard Beaver (Mary Es), Anne-Corinne Beaver Mola [Mike], Margaret Beaver Hassenstab [Jason] and Alice Beaver; eight great grandchildren: Burk and Nathan Staub, Christain, Issac and Thomas Vik, Jack and Ellie Beaver, and Henry Hassenstab; and special friend Issa Ngwele - and not to forget 'Cute Kitty', who gave her much joy! Memorial service will be held at 2nd Presbyterian Church Knoxville TN, at 2 PM, Sunday October 11, 2009. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her memory to 2nd Presbyterian Church or to the Anne Y. and Herman L Modlin, Jr. Scholarship College of Business Administration 721 Stokely Management Center, Knoxville 37996. Online condolences may be made through www.morrisbaker.com. Morris-Baker Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 2001 Oakland Ave., Johnson City, TN 37601 (423) 282-1521 is serving the family.
    [Other information at the funeral home Web site indicates that she was buried in Lynnhurst Cemetery.]

    1. Title: Record of descendants of Edward Walker, Revolutionary soldier of North Carolina and Tennessee
      Author: Burns, Annie Walker
      Publication: Frankfort, Kentucky: published privately, 1929
      Note: Transcriptions of family letters and other documents. The book is divided into two sections and pagination restarts; all references here are to the second section. Mrs. Burns collected information specifically to join historical societies and did not compile a more traditional family history book. Still, there are many letters from family members living at that time that provide valuable information. However, the letters are not even chronologically shown, and some of them clearly reflect information learned during the exchange of letters instead of knowledge held previously. Very careful analysis and detailed prior knowledge of the family relationships is necessary to extract appropriate evidence. For instance, one must carefully separate family tradition from personal knowledge of people they would have known well. A careful reading of the letters and attention to timelines does tend to indicate who knew who and who would have most definitely been in a position to know exact family relationships, especially among living people. Some evidence is extremely invaluable. For instance, although other evidence exists, the letters from Mary (Walker) Lewis, combined with those who knew her personally and her family relationship, provide one of the clearest indicators connecting Edward Sr.'s sons Edward and Joseph together as brothers. Likewise, the letters from Elisabeth (Walker) Click and Melbourn Green Walker and the clear evidence of who knew them and their relationships to the family tie Jacob, Henry, John Gilmore, and the other sons and daughters of Edward, Jr., together quite well with strong evidence. Not all evidence is as strong. In short, the book contains valuable source material, but very close scrutiny is required to determine which portions of it constitute source material.

    13. Title: Tennessee Death Records, 1949-2005
      Author: Shelby County, Tennessee, Register
      Note: Bills itself as a partial index to statewide death certificates but does not explain “partial”. The original version covered data from 1949 to 2005 with several errors. Data for 1949 was sparse, and there were other losses, such as few records May-December 1962 and other time periods. When the notation “(sparse)” is used, a record could not be found but the list of certificates for that days appears to be incomplete. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, more than 75% of the data indicates a place of death incorrectly as “Humphreys County”.

      The database was updated in November 2010 with records through 2009. Additionally, most of the missing records are now in the database, and the Humphreys County problem also appears to have been corrected. Some records in 1962-1963 seem to have some unusual counties of residence and may be incorrect in that regard but otherwise seem reasonable. Death certificates listed as “not found” without a 2010 date have not yet been searched in the new version.
      Note: Original certificates should be obtained
