Dear Paul,

Not sure if we're related directly, but my 3rd great grandmother was Catharine Ridenour, born 7 Aug 1790 in Washington, MD. In 1811, she married Daniel Fearnow in Berkeley Springs, WV (town was named Bath, Virginia at the time). She died Nov 10, 1861, same place. Her parents were Johannes Jacob Reitenauer (1750-1810) and Elizabeth Zeller (1749-1833). I'd sure like to hear from you even if we can't find a direct connection.

Ridenour Family
Hi Paul,

David B Ridenour, Sr is married to my 5th great aunt, Margaret Ridenour.

I was born in Rouzerville, PA and lived in Hagerstown, MD area until I was out of school. I still have family in Hagerstown so we go there a few times a year to visit.

Tomorrow, we are planning on visiting the Osage Cemetery.

Thanks for all your research.

I don't think so, Paul, so if you don't mind send it. My wife's 4G grandfather, John David German Adrian, was a charter member of First Baptist, Tyler in 1848.

I see that there is no date of death for them. Please don't add their names if they are still living.

Paul, There are 3 names on this headstone but there is only a memorial for Nelson J. Ridenour. The others look like maybe Nancy and Karen - their names/dates are not legible on the photo on Nelson's memorial. Thanks, Fran

RE: Rachel Lenora
I see your photos, looks very nice. I've deleted my photo for the infant son. Would like to have the title of the book w/Shelby history. My great grandmother was a Dunavant and her ?gggreat grandfather ,Joel, and a son were soldiers in the Revolution. Wish a female would do the dna for us.

It was my pleasure; LaRue is 9 miles from my home. The Shelbys history is very interesting: perhaps you know they stopped in Tyler and were charter members of First Presbyterian church, came to Henderson Co., settled in the community of Morrison Chapel. After the railroad came the town was called Larue; the cemetery is known as both Morrison Chapel and LaRue. Some of the Shelbys re-located near Athens where there is a cemetery & church called Shelby Chapel.

I sent the owner of the Infant son's memorial an edit including the memorial numbers for his father and mother.

You can easily do this on future memorials - use the edit key and put in your requests. Once the owner sees he as edits to approve, they will automatically go thru.

Have a great one!

RE: La Rue Cemetery
Well, I think you did an absolutely beautiful job! I couldn't believe it when I saw the pictures! I'm glad you cleaned Josie's stone. Hers is such a sad story. I can't believe how many children she and John McK lost!

My great-grandmother was Jane Eliza (Jennie) Shelby Simons Dunklin. She was your Rachel's older sister. My grandfather was her second child by John James Simons who died 2 months before my grandfather was born. I've been researching the Shelbys off and on for close to 50 years. I first got interested when I was about 13 and corresponded with Ernest Perry Bell who, I think, was the first to start researching our branch of the family. He's buried at Shelby Chapel.

Anyway, I want to thank you for what you did to the stones. James Madison and Ann Amanda Shelby left all of us an incredible legacy and you have helped preserve their memory. Thank you.

La Rue Cemetery
This is just a curiosity question. My 2x great-grandparents were James Madison and Ann Amanda Henderson Shelby. I manage their memorials here on Find-A-Grave. I happened to visit the memorials a few days ago and saw the new photos you posted of their tombstones. Wow! Do you have any idea who had them cleaned? It looks like a beautiful and professional job was done. Which is what got me curious. Were only their stones restored or was there a restoration done to the whole cemetery? I've only had a chance to visit there once about 8 years ago but, obviously, I'm related to a great number of people buried there.

I have have deleted the photo that I submitted to Roley MIntosh. I had credited in the caption to a Charles Steiger, which obviously is incorrect. You can add the photo with your name. I am sorry there was a misunderstanding as I always try and give correct credit to photos.

Thank you for your time and effort in visiting Ferris Cemetery and looking for the grave of Frederick M. Dean. It was so sad to read of the vandalism inflicted upon the cemetery.
