RE: Morris VanArsdale

No Donna, I have no connection. I created a memorial for his wife, Mae, in Roselawn and linked as much family to her as I could find which included her husband, Morris.

I am wondering if you have any connection to the Joshua LEMON - or his father Joseph Innes LEMON in Georgetown, Scott County, KY. We are searching for what I believe is Joseph's father James d 1832 married to ?? Innes first, then Frances Proctor. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Mary Buchholz

This where I got the information. I already put in the plot information under edits.

I have relatives buried there and happen to come across his name.

Thank you for posting the pix. I appreciate the help. I noticed in the bottom one it is laying face down. Was it fixed before the other pix, or is it lying face down now, or do you know?

RE: Mary Ellen (Morris) Switzer
It's on the caption I included with the photo:

Mary Ellen Morris Switzer with her two eldest children: Martin Luther Switzer (1879-1923) and Josephine Beatrice Switzer (1877-1912).

RE: Mary Ellen (Morris) Switzer
Hi Donna,

Mary Ellen (Morris) Switzer is my great-great-grandmother. She and Benjamin Switzer's eldest child, Josephine Beatrice Switzer, is my great-grandmother.

The photo was in a box of New genealogy (Josephine married John New) that my mother (Helen Klipsch Stites) had before her passing. I have the original hard, cardboard-like photograph. On the back it says:

The Blue Grass Photograph and Copying Co.
Main Street
Georgetown, KY
E. H. Boden, Manager

My mother had written the names on the back as well. She also included where Josephine married John New and Luther married Mattie Mitchell.

Hope that helps answer your question. :-)

Hi, Donna. I haven't been able to get back down to Rocky Springs Cemetery to look for this headstone that you photographed. Would you mind if I use the one you posted on F.A.G. on my Ancestry page? I will give you credit for the photo. I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

I found a biography on his son Dr. Walter T. Mefford that gave a lot of information.

I asked Findagrave to remove the photo years ago and they didn't. You are not the first to tell me this. Maybe you can ask them also. I do appreciate you noticing and I wish it were gone from there.Thanks

Owen and Scott County cemeteries
Hi. I haven't been doing genealogy research for very long, but I am finding myself hooked now that I've started! I don't live in Kentucky, but I noticed that you have provided photos from Owen and Scott County cemeteries, so I thought that you might be close to that area. I would like to know if all of the headstones in certain cemeteries have been recorded. Specifically, I am wondering about Caney Fork Baptist Church Cemetery, Long Lick Baptist Church Cemetery, and Southworth Family Cemetery. Also, just in general, in that area, have people found everything that there is to be found yet? Are there still little family cemeteries that are on private property that haven't been recorded in Find A Grave? I am wondering because I am missing death information for quite a few people in my family tree. I can't find death records or burial plots or Find A Grave entries or obituaries or anything! I even bought the book "Gone, Forgotten, Now Remembered: Scott County Cemeteries," but I have had no luck on a few people. It's frustrating. I'd love to hear any information or feedback that you have on this area. Also, I'll throw out a name, just in case you ever see it on a headstone...Carrie Belle Leach Hile(s) is someone that I am looking for. She was born in 1879 and died some time between 1904 and 1909. I have her on the 1900 census, as a young married woman. She was married to Lawrence Hile - - he was from Long Lick. She probably was too. I have a little photo of them when they were married in about 1899 - it was taken in Omega, which was somewhere between Owenton Rd and Sutterville Rd. It had a post office at the time they had the photo taken. I think that Omega is probably on someone's farm or just a little shack along a dirt road now... It's sad to me that I can't find Carrie Belle anywhere and I don't even have a death record on her. Lawrence and her children ended up in Whittier, Ca (along with my great grandmother, who was related to Lawrence). But I don't think that Carrie Belle died in Ca. I think she died in Kentucky.

Anyway, thanks for reading this message, even if you can't help me! I might need to make a trip out there myself some day.

Mefford Cemetery at Biddle

Dear Donna:

At first I would like to thank-you for the work you do in recording and preservation. It will reach over time and provide important data to those yet unborn.

I am in the process of preparing a proposal to preserve Mefford headstones. Would you be interested in assisting in that regard? At a minimum would you grant use of your photo of the Mefford Cemetery near Biddle in Scott County, KY? It has an unforgettable impact!

With much anticipation I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours truly,
George Paul Farris

RE: Mary C. Munson Hampton
Her son James Hampton's Death Certificate says the same thing. Burial in Hampton Cemetery. I think this cemetery was on the family farm in Hessler Pct. Owen Co., KY.

No, still haven't got the Death Certificate from you. Did you send it to

If a problem I can go onto and try
and find it.

I am thinking she was buried on their Farm Land
and they called it Hampton Cemetery?
What do you think?

Would you mind putting that Death Certificate
on her Memorial Site?
I would appreciate it. I can make a disclaimer
don't know Hampton Cemetery.

RE: Mary C. Munson Hampton
No, I would have to order the death certificate and take my chance that it might mention place of burial. Obituary is the other way to go and contact
Owen County Genealogical and Historical Society.
