RE: Tennessee Mitchel Anderson Friday, January 28, 2011 2:58 PM
From: "Staff" Add sender to Contacts
To: jeannetterook@yahoo.comDear Ms. Rook:

Thank you for sending complete information about Tennessee Mitchell Andersen. Your records indicate that she was interred at Graceland . Actually, she was only cremated and scattered here.

As you probably know, cremation dates will often appear as internments, and this is the case with Tennessee Mitchell Andersen. Unfortunately, Ms. Mitchell Anderson lacks a plaque. Although she was scattered here on January 9, 1930, we have no record of where. Today, we scatter ashes by the Chapel. I have no record of where ashes were customarily scattered in 1930.

I regret that I could not be of further assistance.

Cordially,

Max Lombardi
