Thank you!
... for posting the information on James Benjamin Wright. I am a WRIGHT researcher - all the way back to Richard Wright, Sr., father of Benjamin Wright. My 3rd GGF, Richard, Jr. was Benjamin's brother.

Thanks, again. Are you related to him?

Grave Memorial #67558856
Thanks for all the work you do!
The parents of Irvin Taylor, who died as an infant, are not John A. Taylor and Susanah Taylor. The parents are Robert Taylor (Grave Memorial #84819656) and Sarah Grimes Taylor (Grave Memorial #84934612). I hope you can make the change.
Thanks so much.

Lowe family cemetery
I'm related to the Seth Tatum buried in the Lowe family cemetery. I have tried a number of times to locate the cemetery but no luck. Can you help me pin point it's location?

RE: Zike Family Cemetery
The ultimate question is does it require a lot of walking to get there or can you drive most of the way? If it requires walking I can find someone to go for me so either way I would love to visit it if possible. I would love to find the cemeteries located in Indian Creek Township in Monroe County.

Zike Family Cemetery
How many stones can be read in the Zike Family Cemetery? We are always hearing about a Zike Cemetery in Lawrence Co.,IN and even have the same listings as the cemetery in Harrodsburg area I wish we could clear up whether they are one in the same.

I also have another question I noticed that you have mentioned the Sare Cemetery that is located on the Wingfield Farm in Indian Creek Township; Have you personally been there and do you have photos? I would love to find pictures of the stones but I can no longer hike those woods like when I was younger for health reasons. I grew up on Rockport Road South of Kirksville and have been to Teague many times as a kid but I just dont remember visiting Sare.

Cedar-Colman Cemetery
Thank you for entering the "lost" Cedar-Colman Cemetery. I feel certain this is the cemetery where my 4th great grandparents were buried. (Peter and Rachel May) My grandfather owned 240 acres in Indian Crk Twp, including the SW 1/4 of section 13 and the east half of the SE 1/4 of section 14. I was told the "Old Cedar Graveyard" was on his property or right next to it.

He and his wife were buried there and I presumed their teenage daughter who predeceased them. My grandfather who was raised on what was left of the May farm remembered no carved stones, but only fieldstone slabs and cedar trees to mark the graves. A few years ago however a carved stone was found with the name Phebe May. Given the date we believe this is the unnamed teenage daughter who disappeared from the census records about the same time.

To my knowledge there was never a family in the area named Cedar. My grandfather always called the cemetery "Old Cedar Graveyard" or the "May graveyard", but I always assumed he was referring to the cedar trees, not to a family. There were no Colmans or Colemans on any area census before 1900. However I believe they might have owned the land when the WPA survey was taken.

In the summer of 2000, Kutch family members came from out of state looking for this cemetery.
All we found was the two stones stacked behind the barn on the farm. At the request of the family the stones were moved to Clover Hill and placed beside the husband & father's stone.
John Kutch's stone reads b-3 Nov 1786 d-11 Dec 1869.
One stone moved was John's first wife,Elizabeth McCane Kutch, b-12 Feb 1787 d-15 Oct 1847.
The second stone was for a crippled son, John C Kutch b-15 May 1831 d-17 Jul 1861.

This notation was placed in the Kutch Cemetery folder in the MCHS Libary.

Thanks for all the great work you are doing.

Chambers Cemetery - Fairfax
I added one of your photos to my tree, William Chambers, from the golf course. I hope that is okay! I added a few more pics to the William Chambers Cemetery. I actually have a few additional photos, Medcalf and one or two others that I need to research as they are niot listed on Find a Grave. Once I have the info, I will upload those pics. Next time we go to Kentucky, I want to go back. I want to find some of the other cemeteries, as I have some othe requests in, Finley, Strain, etc. Some are at Mount Salem, I think.
Welcome to Find A Grave! Are you addicted to it yet???

Forget Me Not
Getting any sleep?
Oh no, what I have done? I can tell by the number of memorials that you are hooked. I can't tell you how many nights I have stayed up working on memorials and cropping pictures.
Don't stay up to late.
Any luck on the plot sheets?

Forget Me Not
Welcome to the Find A Grave family Tony. Thanks for all your help the other day. After all the searching we only found 1 grave. There are 35 open searches for Clover Hill and I know just the person for those requests. :)
Hope you enjoy this as much as Max and I.
