I have information on your grandmother Sarah Elizabeth Cunupp and your grandfather Dedrick Anderson Grooms. First of all let me tell you how excited we were when we found your post. Your grandparents are our grandparents too. Sarah was born June 16,1891 and died when hit by a truck September 26,1943. Dedrick Anderson Grooms was born May 8,1880 and died April 28,1958. They are buried in Greggs Chapel Cemetary,in Newport, Tennessee.There are Grooms,Lackey,and Barnett's buried there also and these too are relatives.When we found the cemetary it was unkept and me and my husband Elmer cleaned it up and take care of it. Sarah and Dedrick were married April 19,1908 in Sevier County, Tennessee Dedrick was 28 and Sarah 17 when they were married. Please e-mail back or you can call (423) 613-0749 because your grandparents are the same as our grandparents.
