RE: PFC Andrew Tackett
Thanks for the pic of Andrew, Willie, and the woman whom I assume is Andrew's mother and dad. Do you have a pic of Elizabeth? I have never seen her pics before. Have you had your DNA tested and if so by Who? Sharon Estep

pics of Andrew
Thanks sooooo much for the pics you sent I have never seen a pic of the young Willie just remember seeing him 1x before he died. That one pic of dad and Henry (I was unable to open) I could not send a reply via that email so this is the only way I can contact you. Thanks again I appreciate it so much . Sharon E Estep

PFC Andrew Tackett
Thanks Sherry for your response I would like to see the pics you mentioned, my Aunt came to live with us after Andrew was killed she was a role model then and I looked up to her and grasped every word she said so I am interested in anything you may be able to share with me. So was Mary Jane Ward your great grandmother? My mom had many memories of her and Ballard, mom lived on South Side( or I remember it called Hen Cliff) for 23 yrs until she got married and moved to Magoffin county.
I had always been told that my great grandfather William (Willie) Hensley that Married Elizabeth Howard was not buried at the mouth of coon creek where she is buried. My Aunt Dorothy said she went to the grave side after his funeral and it was in the cemetery on South side in Johnson County, I noticed you have him listed in the same cemetery as Elizabeth (Howard Cemetery)
you didn't post a pic of a monument and Elizabeth did have one so I was wondering if your Willie is a different person and not my great grandfather. Thanks again for all the hard work you have done I feel like a whole person now that I know more about my family. Sharon Elam Estep.

Hello Sherry,
My husband, Walter,found the grave of Henry "Hunting Shirt" Sizemore in 2015. We posted all the information on findagrave at that time. Unfortunately we did not see your earlier posting, which says that his burial place is unknown. Would you consider withdrawing your posting of him because our information is more complete? Someone has left a message on our posting that we should withdraw it because yours was posted first. My husband descends from two of Henry's brothers, and he has first cousins who descend from Henry. We have researched Henry's family for at least 20 years, and hunted for his grave all that time. Last year my husband was finally successful.

your cousin Andrew Tackett
Hi Sherry, I am a newby and appreciate the work you have done just viewed your post regarding your cousin Andrew, he was married to my Aunt Mable, I remember visiting my grandmother's house in paintsville and seeing a life -size photo of Andrew in his uniform hanging in the bedroom, it stayed there until my grandparents had to sell their home and move into a mobile home near my mother's home, I think Aunt Mable still has that photo last time I asked her. My aunt said he didn't have any family left. I know you have just lost a son and I am so sorry maybe you will feel like contacting me someday regarding this photo. If you are related to the Howards in Magoffin county maybe we share a common ancestor. My maternal great grandmother was Elizabeth Howard and married Willie Hensley they resided in Johnson county, my mother said she was buried in the cemetery located at the mouth of coon creek last I heard it was grown up is that correct? Willie was buried on a cemetery located on Hen Cliff at the top of a steep hill. I would appreciate any info you may have regarding these two cemeteries. Sharon Rose Elam Estep. Ashland Ky.

RE: Aggie Sizemore
I was wondering about the photo Mary Montgomery at the grave of Aggie and Silas Montgomery. Aggie and Silas are my great X 4 grandparents. Jahaza Minix had Virgie who had my grandmother Helen. I was wondering where the photos came from and if I would be able to get a copy and perhaps get in contact with you? I am working on our family tree. I have been blessed to get in contact with someone who has really helped me with information. I just love putting faces to the names as well. Also, on Hunting Shirt Sizemore, could I get a copy of that picture? My email is Feel free to email me anytime. I don't have many photos on that side of our family but I have one of Brice Minix and Jahaza Montgomery Minix. It's was my grandmother's photo and my dad had a copy made of it. I attached it to her memorial a year or so ago. Thanks for any and all help.

First, I noticed through comments that your son has passed away. Please accept my condolences.

With Aggie Sizemore and Silas, you have a photo of their tombstone and a couple standing there. Can you tell me who the couple is?

Jahaza Montgomery Minix is my great great grandmother and I am trying to find out all that I can about her family line.

When I joined this site a few yrs. ago, your name was one of the first that I noticed as being very active. I seemed to see it everywhere. Then, a lot of those who were familiar became busy elsewhere or passed on to a better place, and like yours, I didn't see them much. I am very sorry to hear of your son's death. I know there isn't anything that can make you feel better at this time, but at least he can be remembered here by us. Wishing you some kind of peace and comfort in the future. My condolences to you and your family.

Gold Howard 1920 - 1991
Hi there, Sherry. I was looking at the memorial for Gold Howard. Unless there are two Gold Howard's, the dates you have for him are for the Gold Howard buried in Roselawn Cemetery in Saginaw, Michigan. Gold's father is Herbert Howard and mother is Ida Hadix. There are brothers and sisters that are different from what you have listed. I know that the Howard family is quite extensive, however, I don't think the information you have is connected to those dates. Thank you for your time.

another mystery
My great grandfather "Lige" Phipps was born a Howard in Kentucky but came to Ohio and changed his last name to Phipps. My uncle and aunt have told me some tall tales as to why but I wonder if you know the real reason?

William Jenkins child
Hi, I am doing a family tree for my mother and have come to a point where I cant tie one mother and daughter together. I can find nothing that links Louisa Jenkins to Ellen Jenkins which is my mothers great grandma? Not a census or a birth record or anything. I just want to make sure I have the correct Louisa Jenkins?

Thanks for any help.

Teal Prior
Eva Montgomery Connection
Sherry, I believe you have connected Eva Montgomery (22374110) to the wrong Lee Montgomery as her father. She should be connected to Lee Montgomery (159609488). He is in the same cemetery as his first wife Cora (Conley) Montgomery, my grant-grandmother. I have copies of his death cert., info given by his son Sam. Thanks for all your hard work! Family, Teal (Newman)Prior

Howard Cemetery Unknown
I have found an old marker with the inscription "M.H. SR, DC May 9 1892" (Or it could be 1842) Could his be the grave of Moses Howard SR? If not, who else could it be?
