Fayne Plummer
Hi William,

I am wondering if you are any relation to Fayne Plummer (#1084750). My husband, William, is his grandson but has not had contact with this side of the family since his father died in 1977 (he was a few months old).

Thank you,

Andrews cemetery in Flemingsburg KY
Hi William,

I noticed your post on findagrave regarding the Campbells and in particular Margaret A Butler (she is part of our Butler family) I was at the cemetery this past spring and was saddened to see how bad it was. Planning a return visit to help clean up this cemetery with other DAR members. Did you need permission to enter the cemetery, it look pretty fenced off.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi William, Thank you for sponsoring these two memorials. We're not related and have transferred them to you. If we have other relatives of yours, we can transfer them, too. Mary

Fred Despain
I am conducting research on WWI. I have a Fred Despain from Lincoln, IL (1917) who served in the Navy aboard the Orleans and U.S. Pennsylvania. His parents must have been deceased since his guardian was Jacob Hoover. If this in the Fred whose Memorial you maintain, Please contact me.

Laredo Cemetery Photo Request
I am planning on going to Laredo next Spring and if the 117 photo requests haven't been picked up, I plan to do them. It would be really helpful if you could find the plot number for me as it's a huge cemetery attached to another huge cemetery. Thanks,

Thomas Howe - Cave Hill
The Cave Hill database doesn't show a Thomas Howe, d. 1866. Do you have any other info?

DeSpain Family
I am a descendent of Marshall & Rachel DeSpain through their daughter, Hannah DeSpain who married Wilson Edley Ewing, and their daughter, Dorinda Ewing McCaleb McIntire.

I have recently met Jan Andrews by phone as Carmen Goldthwaite had written me about her. Jan and I tried to get a DeSpain Cousins get-together going for the second week in June, but so far only she, Shirley Walters and I are planning to meet.

Are you also on Ancestry? If so would love to be invited to your tree. My email is

Am impressed with the listing of all the DeSpain graves. You've been busy to have done that in two years.

Hi! Regarding your photo request, can you please contact the cemetery and obtain the Section, Lot, and Grave Number information, and then post it to your request? Please also ask if there is a grave marker and add that information to your photo request and/or memorial. The Find A Grave FAQs state the photo requestor is responsible to provide this information.

Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273

This cemetery provides extremely limited assistance to photo volunteers with finding a grave's location. Last year I was able to fulfill almost 200 photo requests at Elmwood through this process. Because the lots in this cemetery are poorly marked, almost no one else ever photographs here. I have only had success here because I have spent literally weeks at a time to learn the intricacies of the layout of this cemetery.

Thank you for helping me to help you.

I don't think the photo you posted is for this person (based on the dates).

I have transferred his page to you since you are related. My mother knew Bonita through their Rosedale ties, and my brother is a close friend of her son.

Noticed that you manage couple DeSpain's memorials. Henry is not related to us, and if you want we can transfer him to you.

William - I am looking for Robert Davis (1804-1878). I believe he is in Evans Davis Cemetery in Fleming County and I see you have taken photos there. Can you tell me where that cemetery is located? Thanks in advance.

C Helvey's wife, Gertie
I was wondering if you knew anything about Gertie's parents or grandparents. Not sure how much you have researched the family. I'm really wondering about Gertie's grandparents - John and Kissiah Williams. Anything would be great. Thank you so much.
