RE: Robert Clay Young
Hi, I went back and looked as you suggested, don't know what I thought I saw last time, you and others have done a great job of linking several generations. Sorry for the confusion. pc

RE: Robert Clay Young
Yes, his mother was Ruth, but I don't see too much going back any farther other than maybe her parents names or her husbands parents names. I'll look again, maybe I messed up, but I am referring to the man who was the former somewhat famous research archivist for Library of Virginia, (considered America's foremost researcher of the Clay Family of America etc) as well as his Young lineage of whom I suspect Robert did not leave his family genealogy history on Find A Grave. lol and as I am not likely to borrow it from the Library of Virginia and was just hoping it had gotten posted elsewhere online for easy viewing and thought you may know. I wasn't sure if you were a relative, colleague, friend or a Find A Grave volunteer who had the facts given to you to write on his memorial page etc. I see much similar related posting by a Janice McAlpine on rootsweb and whereby she mentions she agrees with Robert Clay Young's research regarding his ancestor Michael Cadet Young. That is what I was really going for and to find out just how he and his mother Ruth were related to Michael Cadet Young. My problem is that while Michael Cadet and his sons are well documented, his line coming down to mine of the Rev. Thomas Edwin Young and wife Malinda (Harvey) Young don't have much research being found related more to them specifically. I was hoping maybe Robert had delved into that line a bit and I could find his work without going to the Library of Virginia. Thanks for your help, I was searching for where online his work might be found if anywhere. PC

Robert Clay Young
Hello, Do you have any info on the lineage of Robert Clay Young. I see his work and see that his mother was a Young, but I have yet to find how she descended from Michael Cadet Young, which son etc. I do not have a way to access his papers and am trying to make sure he doesn't have info on my line of Rev. Thomas Young and son John Thomas Young to Burris Daniel Young etc. I do note Rev. Thomas Edwin Young named a daughter Paulina Clay Young. I looked on find a grave and but found nothing beyond Ruth Clay's father. Thanks for any help. PC

Oh no...please disregard my prior note. It was incorrect. The man who married women, got them pregnant, and then left them was James Meroney's father, Galen Wright Meroney. So sorry. Ethel did have two sons, Virgil and Allen. Don't know why she was living back with her parents in the 1910 Census Report, but it shows she was widowed ("W"), even though her husband James was still alive. Maybe he did leave her. More research is needed.

Tabitha Ethel Highers
She was a daughter of Josiah T. Highers and his wife, Ann Dickerson Belk. She went by her middle name of Ethel. She married the notorious James Nelson Meroney, in 1902. He married dozens of women, across the country, got them pregnant, and then left them. She had two sons by him. After he left her, she moved back home with her parents. You can see her living with them in the 1910 Census Report. She later married a Mr. Hardin. She is also buried in the Ridgewood Cemetery, Find A Grave #64312437. I requested the owner of her memorial to link to her parents. If you want more information about Mr. Meroney, please let me know.

Samuel Robinson
Hey Fran,
You put the memorial in for Samuel Robinson Dixon Cemetery and also a photo of his stone with the Note: photo courtesy of John Waggoner, Jr.
I was praying that maybe you guys might have a photo of Sam's wife's stone, Mary Frances Brown Robinson. I know these are old stones so if a pic was taken next to Sam's that you couldn't read it quite possibly is Mary's. Anyway, thought I'd ask. I've requested the photo. Thanks for letting me know one way or the other. Also thanks for all the Robinson photos you've added to Find A Grave.
luv, sj/Dallas

Request for Eastern Cemetery, Louisville, KY
Hello Fran,

If you can obtain a map for the locations in Eastern Cemetery and send it to me, I will try to find the graves.
I don't want to commit to the request without a map, Eastern is still a pretty large cemetery.
This information may help you - good luck.

Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery had come under a very serious controversy, in which multiple bodies were being buried in the same graves. Apperently this practice started in the 1920 and went unchecked up until the mid 1980's. So they were doing this for about 60 years without anyone doing anything about it.
The state took over this cemetery, and the Staff Archaologist from the Department of Archaelogy at the University of Louisville has all the burial records, his name is Phillip DiBlasi.
Anyone seeking information about family members buried at Eastern Cemetery in Louisville should contact Mr DiBlasi.

Here is the contact information for Mr Phillip Di Blasi;
