Travis, I am trying to find information on Isaac Richard & Bessie Pearl(Ashby)LeMaster. They had three sons: Isaac Richard, Larry Edward & Patrick Michael LeMaster. Bessie was my mothers sister. She's buried in Crown Hill Cemetery in Indy. If you can help me with any information, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much, Judy

Gaye Hill
Relationship between Prof. & Logan Layne
The Evening Bulletin newspaper, Maysville, KY
Friday 2 October 1896; Front Page, Column 4


A Prominent Career Cut Short By A Mental Affliction.

Anderson, IN, Oct. 2 - Professor Joseph Layne died last night at the home of his brother, Logan, at Frankton, six miles north of here. The funeral will occur Saturday, under the auspices of Anderson commandery, Knights Templars.

Professor Layne was reared near Frankton, and after graduating from the common schools, taught school and made enough money to take him to Wabash college, where he graduated. He returned to Anderson. This was in 1878, and he taught in the high school there for two or three years, until he was elected to the superintendency of the Danville, (Ills.) schools.

From Danville he went to Evansville, where he became superintendent of the public schools for $2,500 a year. He held this position until two years ago, when an affliction of the mind, caused by an attack of grip*, incapacitated him for further work as superintendent. He was not retained for the next year, and returned to Anderson to study and practice law.

Early in his career he had intended becoming a lawyer, and had studied some while teaching. His affliction became steadily worse, and a few months ago he had to be taken to the asylum, from which he was returned to Frankton as incurable a month ago. Professor Layne was 46 years old, unmarried and leaves an estate of $50,000. Two brothers survive him.

*grip; also know as grippe and la gripe(grippe)is ususally noted as influenza.

Mary Gilbert
Cemetery Records have Mary Gilbert buried in Block 316. However, there is not a tombstone for her at the site. Records show that there are 8 plots in the Block owned by the Gilberts, but the only stone on the Block is a big stone with the name Gilbert on it. I will put a picture of the stone on Mary's Memorial.

Poe Cemetery
I was so glad to add those photos. The cemetery is in disarray and the owners of the property were so kind to help me. It also permitted me to get the GPS of the cemetery and add it to the mapped cemeteries on Find a Grave. The cemetery is only about 5 miles from my home. I am excited that those photos meant something to you and perhaps others.

RE: Sigler Cemetery
I'm not real sure on the King links at this've got so much going on in my head right now! It's tax time, I have the flu, supposed to babysit, and using too much brain power just isn't going to happen! I had several more updates to send but did decide to hold off and then caught myself sending some of them anyway! The McCords, Etchisons, Denneys, and possibly some of the Merritts, and not sure how many others family is all over the place! Nearest connections are Sanders, Denney/Denny, Galbreath, Merritt, McCord, Heater, Russell, Daglish, Toppe, Reese, Rush, Brown, and Apple. It's very interesting (and scary!) that I have found family intertwined so often. My side of the family (Sanders to Daglish to Toppe to Denny to Galbreath.....on my mother's side and then on my dad's side; Sanders to Heater to McCord and on and on....the McCords are the key...they married into the Denny and Merritt family and the Sanders people married with Denny's mostly in the Hancock Co area as well as Boone and Hendricks Co. My ex-husband was Brown and his mother's maiden name is Apple and Apple's and McCords have lots of marriages! Found at one time we are something like 3rd cousins several times removed! But back to your question about the King's LOL....the link I have found at Sigler so far is the Kind/Denney connection with Sarah and Jesse

Hi Travis
I have sent numerous corrections, links, and updates for this cemetery to you since it seems you must have added most of the memorials. I am not trying to overload you and so realize I need to not send so many. I have lots of stuff to add tho so could you please email me when it's ok to start sending more updates? Thanks so much! I just recently photographed the entire cemetery and have been anxious to add more information!

I found her son buried next to her. His stone was hard to read so I think I have it right. Couldn't read the whole age but I made out the 4 months.

RE: Nathan Beals, Lynchburg Cemetery
That area of the state wasn't even opened up for settlement until 1854, but even then, only a handful of folks came. The vast majority of people populating Richardson County came after the War; 1865 - 1875. That decade saw a virtual flood of people crossing the river from Iowa & Missouri. Nathan died 05 Sep of 67, so my guess is, he wasn't there long. His wife, Elizabeth [CHEW] Beals died in Indiana in 1881. Maybe she went home after Nathan bit the dust? Their boy, John T. Beals was born in Clinton County, Indiana 25 Jun 1827, which would have made him 40 when his father died. John T. died in Sheridan, Hamilton, IN, 18 Sep 1917. Therefore he never left Indiana, or returned if he did go to Nebraska. Then again, it was John T.'s daughter, Sarah [BEALS] Hill, who was the mother of Halcyon, also buried at Lynchburg. I tend to think the whole crew returned to Indiana after the deaths of their loved ones.
