Hi Rita! I found your post to Trink J.'s page while Googling names of my ancestors. Nicholas and Isham Pearcy are both my 4x great grand uncles also! Their brother Charles (b. 1770) is my 4x great grandfather. It sounds like you may have some information about Isham and Nicholas Pearcy(?) Anyhow, pleased to meet a distant cousin and if you care to share any info you have on the Pearcy's, I will send my email address.
Have a great day!

Thanks for Find A Grave Correction: Sallie Scott
Hi, Rita! Thanks for your note with Sally Percy's parents. I did know of them, but when I made this entry, I wasn't doing bios (yet). Sally is my gr-gr-grmo. Are you related? I had not heard that Isham's first name was John, and it isn't on his marker; I added his link to Sally. I have some burial information for Ann Obenchain, but don't actually know where's she's buried. Do you know if she's buried in the same cemetery with Isham, i.e. Presbyterian Cem., Lynchburg, VA? Thanks again for taking to time to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you again. Best, Trink

Are you related to this Joseph Selby Fenwick. I am descended from mother Mary Bridget Welch Fenwick, she is my great aunt.
Looking for photos of Aunt Bridget, she was one of nine girls of James H. Welch and Mary Isabelle Grant, and we have very few photos of her.
Thanks. Julia Mitchel 46905166

Hello, am interested in the Barnabas VanZant tombstone. I cannot read it in the photo online and wonder if you can give me any more info about what is stated on the birth and date dates. Also interested in the location of the tombstone and maybe other pics of the area (it is a lot but I am excited about this find!). Thanks!

RE: Barnabus Cahoom
Hi Rita

I think you are correct about the father of Catherine being Barnabus Van Zandt. I also think that a Felix Van Zandt was a son of Barnabus, although others have him as a son of a Van Zandt who died in Tennessee. Naming patterns and the fact that Barnabus Van Zandt died in Ashe County seem add more evidence that Barnabus is her father. I believe I have seen a picture of his headstone, but don't know where. I would love a downloaded copy if you are able to send me one.

Barnabus "Barney" Calhoun is my great-grandfather.

Thanks very much - Steve Peters

RE: Amanda E. Nall Stovall

I think they are the same cemetery, but the Mount Zion Baptist Cemetery is the one with a vast majority of headstones, so I guess it would be better to leave mine than try to merge them. There are probably several more like that as well.

I don't see the other duplicate memorial. I looked under Amanda Stovall and Amanda Nall. Can you give me the other memorial number please?

Joseph Selby Fenwick
Would you have any photos of the Fenwick side. I have some photos of some of the "sisters" but Aunt Bridget Fenwick has eluded me.
I cannot seem to find any descendants who might have pictures of this family.
The spelling WELCH is the one most common with the sisters but some of the early census records for James H. Welsh, are spelled with the s.

There is no help for this addiction cousin. I am 30 years and counting.
Aunt Bridget Welsh Fenwick had 8 sisters, try figuring all this out.
I descend from her youngest sister Julia Belle Welsh/Welch(1901-1990), they tended to live a long time. At least we have good genes.

Thank you so much, the picture is wonderful.

Browns Cemetery or Brown cemetery ?
You may not know the answer to this but --
I have a relative who is buried at Browns ! cemetery . This is listed on to Find A Grave and the name comes from a US Geological Survey Geographic Names. There is a Brown Cemetery at the end of Brown Lane east of Elizabethtown. I was looking there as the photo you have of the cemetery says Brown. I did not double check the GPS coordinates . That is my mistake but do you know who maintains Browns cemetery as this was confusing. The persons who took the readings may have referred to Browns as Brown for a long time.

William Preston French

I checked a list of burials at Hardin County Fort Knox and there is only one candidate, a William French with death date listed as "1930's". This William is buried in French Cemetery. There is no listing for a Catherine or Kitty French. You can check the list at:

Fort Knox is also in Bullitt County; no match there either.

RE: Eliza Pearsley
I will look for her grave. I am hoping weeds are down enough. I plan to dress in boots and go thru some weeds if I have to.

I am totally addicted to this family hunting too and have loved every minute of it for 5 years!
