RE: HELP! Crace Cemetery, Magoffin County
Thanks! I won't be back there again til probably October. I live in Florida now and will take a look again. I saw the road but it was heavily overgrown and I didn't want to try it. I simply may not have gone far enough up the hill!

HELP! Crace Cemetery, Magoffin County
I was just there last week...or at least tried to be.... I climbed the stone steps from off the new Dawkins Trail, just behind the resting bench at the north end of the railroad overpass and tried to follow a rabbit path through the woods, with my eye on the ground for the occasional copperhead. I climbed almost to the top of the hill but never found the cemetery.

Tell me, when you get to the top of the steps, about how far is it, and in which direction? The trail I followed ran in general to the right (northerly) and toward the top of the mountain. Should I have made a left at the top, down a smaller rabbit trail? Does the cemetery overlook the old schoolhouse? Can you even see the old school house from there? Get back to me at I am a descendant of the Crase/Crace family; my great grandmother was Elizabeth Crase from Letcher County, married William Preston Eldridge.

RE: Reider
Actually related although quite convoluted. Joel's father Gideon had a brother Stephen who had a daughter Sallie who married into my Herbein line. Confused yet? Sue

Wanda Hurst
Helen Patrick
Hi, My name is Wanda. I can be reached at It is believed that the Helen Patrick listed on the headstone of Printess Bailey is my half sister. I was wondering if you would be able to confirm this by giving me info on her siblings, father and mother, all of Magoffin county. My mother was married to Helen's father if my information is correct. I know one of Helen's brothers was listed in one of my other half brother's obit as being a half brother. Any information you can provide me would be so very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

John D. Kelsoe, Hattie Hensley and Martha L. Kelsoe
Hi, Just found the information on Martha L. Kelsoe and it's very confusing to me. John D. Kelsoe and Hattie (Hensley) Coffee were married in Somerville, Texas in 1912. They had five children together as far as I can find. Martha L. Kelsoe was born in 1908, so the dates don't match up. John was my gg uncle, and I'm pretty sure this is him. The death certificate has very little information on it. He was born in 1861 in Blount County, Alabama. He was married before Hattie to a Dolly Thomas who passed away in 1899 in Texas. He had four children by her. Could you please give me the information that explains Martha? Couldn't figure out from the death certificate what the name of the cemetery was, so thanks for finding his stone. I have obits of the children from John and Hattie, and Martha is not mentioned, and Hattie wasn't born til 1897, so she would have been 11 at the time of birth. I know this is a lot of questions, but would really like to figure this out. Thanks!! Esther

RE: Lattimore
If they are your grandparents, is the other person even related to them? I have one of my aunt's that I haven't gotten. She lived in Wisconsin and just someone saw obit and made the memorial, not related, didn't even know her. There are others that are very nice and I ask to add info and they just transfer without me asking.

RE: Nichols
I looked through the Kenton Democrat newspaper on microfilm for the obits for Doney Nichols (08-31-1928) and Okie Nichols (12-05-1928.) I couldn't find them.

I then called the Hardin County Health Department uptown, to make sure that they did die in Hardin County. Jackie said their death certificates were on file.

So I got the Kenton Republican newspaper on microfilm, thinking it may be in there, and I just didn't find either one.

Still have not got anything back from Preston Cemetery. I would say they are buried there. Will let you know when I get further info.

RE: Nichols
I know there was a fire of records in 1940. But I know the man that has the plot map, been out there a few times with him. Let me email him and see what he says. There is a location in Preston where babies are buried at the lower end and then there is whole section with unmarked that were the poor. But with the info provided I will see what he says. I will be going into Kenton this week and will stop in and see if I can get an obit on them. I think I have already took pictures of that lower end. But the children could be in a portion that has not been entirely photographed yet and that would be the 2nd west section and the 1st section upper end. I will let you know his response.
