Thank you so much for bringing the differences in birth depending on which calender was used to my attention. I have edited her memorial to accommodate the new information. Thanks again!

RE: Margaret

I left the following message at Heaven Hill Distilleries Bourbon Heritage Center on Facebook:

Looking for the photo of Old William in connection with the founding of this distillery. For proof to doubting kin.

Did you know the name will change to Havenhill in about two generations from William? My mother's maiden name was Havenhill.

The youngest son of immigrant parents, William's father was born Ulrich Himmelberger. He changed his name to Oliver Heavenhill as an adult, when he moved from Pennsylvania to present-day Nelson County, Kentucky, still part of Virginia at the time.

Auburn cemetery damage
I spend a lot of time there and am heartbroken by the lack of care. I have taken my children to help trim plants that have completely covered stones. The damage is being done by the mowing crew mostly. I notice more and more damage each week as well as scrape marks along the stones. There is no care given to the headstones. I have spoken to the mayor and plans are in place to change the way the cemetery is being handled and ran. Some damage is due to vandalism. This summer was bad. But it's mostly lack of attention and careless, inattentive mowers. I am taking steps to make sure this changes. I am hoping to get some help with stone repairs as well.

RE: On Top Contributor List
I do not follow the Find A Grave rules concerning transfers. If someone has more information then I do, which is the case for nearly all of my memorials, then I'm willing to make a transfer. I don't care about numbers, but to simply gather as much information as I can in the hope that someone who's searching for family member discovers what others have done to honor their relative and provide that "missing link".

Yeh, I'm sorry, Diane. I know headstones are a great source of information. At least Ambrose has a free military stone to help mark the plot. :(

I have made the correction you requested. Not quite sure why I listed your email address. Also, let me know if you would like any of your relatives' memorials transferred to you.

Do you know there is an Addington Field in Elizabethtown, KY? It is the small airport here!
Thought maybe you'd like to know. Susan

RE: Re: William B Addington
We can certainly give you our reasons for our edit suggestion, especially in light of the fact that your own memorial states "he is buried in an unmarked grave", but none of those mean anything if the NPS has positively confirmed that he is buried in 1018. We would be very interested in how they arrived at their conclusion--not to dispute it, but to learn their reasoning and methods so that more unknowns can hopefully be identified.
Thank you for this information!

RE: Lawrence and Catherine McManus
Normally I would guess that they were probably buried in the McManus Family Cemetery in the Bear Creek area of Chatham County, but as Lawrence died in 1813 and Catherine died in 1816 and the cemetery monument that faces the road says the cemetery was established in 1821, then -- assuming the McManus family placed the monument and had records (like a family bible) indicating the earliest burial -- then, basically, I haven't a clue where they're buried. Sorry. My connection to the McManus family is a little too distant for me to know who might be able to answer the question -- the Mary Jane (Stinson) McManus who's buried in that cemetery was my 3rd great-aunt.

RE: Austin French
I had some time today,so I went back to St Martin and located Austin French's headstone.. I cleaned it off as best I could. The engraving is worn down considerably. I took a close up photo of the area below the word "Born". I used an App that shows the negative and it still is not readable.. However, I contacted the Parish records keeper, she is friend of My Wife.. She stated that the church records indicated the birth is 1904. Best I can do... I have the photos I took. If you want them let me know... Hope this helps
