It simply means I have searched the entire cemetery and found no marker for him. I added the flower so that I know in future photo requests that I have already been out there and throughly searched for him.

Hello George,

Thank you for those kind words of appreciation. I am not a relative, but have spent many hours typing in obituaries, roaming cemeteries for photos, and adding memorials. Having a love of family history keeps me going. I, too, have been the beneficiary of "Find A Grave" angels.

Thank you so much for posting a message on her Find-A-Grave. This was my maternal great-grandmother. She & her husband Alfred Davis had my grandfather Ross Coleman Davis & he & his wife Jeanette Spurr Davis had my Mom Abigail Sue Davis. I am Benjamin Ray Thompson 1964 Louisville, now in Lynchburg, VA. I appreciate all the Find-A-Grave hard workers out there.
Sincerely, Ben

No, I'm not a descendant. We are working with the Scott County Cemetery Project in an effort to locate and document as many as possible. You probably read my description of what we found in this one. The top of this stone was completely buried and would not have been found if not for my handy dandy 3' screw driver that I used as a probe. I'm sure your math is fine and I will add at least an estimated date of birth.
We have been to so many of these old cemeteries that it would be financially impossible to restore or repair all that we have found in this condition. Is that something that you do? I'm sure you could find lots of work.

RE: MAJ David Mefford (FAG Memorial# 54790521)
You are very welcome. I am a photo volunteer, but I feel all our Veteran's deserve to have their service history recorded whenever possible, and of course, everyone deserve a memorial. I will be more than happy to help you any way I can. If Maj Mefford is a family member, I will be happy to transfer.

Please feel free to email me:

RE: Welcome Home Brother!
Hello Captain Farris, thank you for your comments and taking the time to contacting me. As for Union General and US Congressman John S. Witcher, no I'm not related to he. He's just one of the many Civil War, plus other military figures I've always had an interest in. I feel anyone who serves is deserving of respect and interest. Yes, next time I'm back in Washington we'll have to hook up. Best always,

RE: No doubt!
Good evening Mr. Farris. I received your message, and I want you to know how touched I am. Those were some really sweet sentiments you expressed, and I appreciate it.

Yes sir, I AM a Paratrooper's daughter (82nd Airborne), and a proud one at that. He also served in the 325th Glider Infantry Regiment. That was no picnic. Daddy would have been so pleased to know about your message to me, as I am also.

I am doing all I can to find, honor, and/or memorialize as many of those brave soldiers (from the 325th during World War II) that I can locate, whether or not they gave the Ultimate Sacrifice, came home and lived to a ripe old age (like Daddy), or something in between. It's truly a work in progress, so as I get time, I try to "add to the list", so-to-speak.

And while accepting your thanks for my work, I would like to thank YOU for your service to our country, sir! Veterans have always held a special place in my heart, and you certainly are one of those special people to me.

I would like to add you to my Find A Grave Friends List, if you don't mind; and you can feel free to add me to yours, if you like.

Thank you again Mr. Farris, and I hope to keep the lines of communication open with you sir.

RE: Brothers in arms...
Thanks so much Sir ,

Your comments touch me to the deepest of my heart .

You know if I Joined the Belgium AIrborne it's just because my whish was to find the US airbornes steps ... I joined the army on 1985 and I never be dissapointed by my choice ... every day is a good day . I'm also a lucky man because I'm in touch with so many heroes from WW2, KO, VN and all the other missions .. I'm still amazed when one of these heroes call me "my friend" ... One of my best friend was CSM with the SF ...
Where do you lives in USA ... just in case or one day I could shake your hand ...

Airborne All The Way

RE: Thanks abound!

Thank you for your very kind words and for your service as well. My 28 and 24 year old sons also served which made me very proud. I still have a few years yet before I can retire from the AGR program, but hopefully I'll have even more time to devote to our local history and helping others with their families.

Thanks again!

RE: Adam Raisor, CSA
No, I'm no relation to Adam or any of the Raisor clan - Bill transferred them because he's no longer able to easily maintain his memorials.
If you're a lineal relation, I'll gladly transfer to you. Happy New Year!

I'm sorry to have taken so long to get back to you. Had to try and remember where the info came from. In the Smith and Macon County cemetery records this cem. is listed. Maybe this link will help. Scroll down a tad and you'll come to the Young Cem. I have tried to find it but to no luck, it may be destroyed. I did some research on a grandson of his, thru Merlin, Napolean Bonaparte Young when we had a memorial service for the Confederate soldiers in the Gainesboro City Cem. a few years ago. Merlin's wife, America Eaton was the first child born in the newly formed Jackson County seat of Gainesborough (as spelled originally). She is not buried in the Young Cem. as they'd split up years before (that info I don't have at hand.) Hope this helps!
Thank you for the lovely words. I often do memorial services as a member of the OCR in assistance to the SCV.

Hi George,
Thank you for the note.
I usually don't add family members on obituaries. For privacy reasons. That is why Dorothy only has part of her obit. I'm related to most Meffords. From reading some of your info I believe you are related to Flat Boat George.

Thank You,
