Belated Thank You
Please forgive me for taking so long to thank you for the photos for Calvin Virgil Hays and John and EWva Bauer. The combination of holidays and Polar Vortex has pushed genealogy to a back burner.

I really appreciate all your effort, and I can't thank you enough.

Thank you for the Della Kelley picture
Thank you very much for taking the picture of Della Kelly's grave. I will notify a family member, more directly related, of your kindness. Her picture of the grave in her family tree was very old and unclear. Your picture updates. Thank you again. Duane in Texas

Hi Mr. Smith, I just found the message that I was to be managing their sites.

I have not been well so I play on my trees when I can do nothing else. To be in charge of this would not be fair to the Bolen family. We live in southern Missouri and I have only known his parents. I just found his family after years of searching. I began again and found it in the History of Franklin County. When I got my computer a couple years ago I began the search again. I found them and our daughter and I were amazed. His mother had not keep any records of his family at all. I have never been to that part of Illinois. When we moved his parents out of East Saint Louis in 1983 there was gun fire going off at night nearby. We left a whole suit case of Bolen photos in the house somewhere. I was hoping maybe other family members had copies of those photos.

So you see I glean only from other people`s work. I have never met any of the family other than his mom and dad. So the answer is no.

The photos of the site are beautiful. Thank you so very much for the time you give for all the folks. I put the photo`s on my tree to prove these folks were here on this planet. Many people put on incorrect data because they do not know.

The pictures you take prove it.

Thank you again.
Deanna (Sapp) Bolen

Ezra Allen Hays and brother Calvin
You're right about Ezra being buried in Brady Cemetery and not Macedonia. I've corrected the error. Most of my genealogy material is packed away at the moment, and I'm limping along with a "Reader's Digest" version. Sorry about the slip up.
His brother, Calvin, is buried in Macedonia, as are his wife and children. He might be found among the Graddy's. Sure wish I could be more specific, but thank you for all your help. So many of the older stones are in such bad shape, I don't know how you find any of them.

Assorted Hays and Swiney Headstone Photos
I can't thank you enough for taking the time to photograph and post all the pictures. As clear as the photos are, the inscriptions are all but unreadable on the oldest stones. The moss, algae, and lichen have really taken a toll on what I'm assuming is soft Tennessee limestone. I can only make out a few letters on Mary Alice Swiney's and William C. Swiney's stones. At least they are now photographed. Their grandfather Solomon's headstone supposedly broke in half many years ago, and the portion with the military information was buried when it was reset. His wife Nancy's headstone is nowhere to be found, and hopefully isn't holding up a shed somewhere or lining a now abandoned well. By documenting these oh so fragile monuments, you preserve a moment in history for everyone.
If you're up for it, I have just added some more entries for Thomas and Emily Hays' children. You've already posted their youngest's stone (Omer L. Hays).

John R Rouintree?Roundtree
Like many of our ancestors, John R surname has been spelled many ways. His brother was my gg grandfather and their family name was spelled Rouintree. John R's parents were also both buried under the name Rouintree.

William Allen Swiney
Thank you so very much for posting the photos of William Allen's headstone. Time has not been kind to the inscription. Do you happen to remember what the bottom portion said?
Yes, I would greatly appreciate if you would post photos of the other Swiney and Hays stones at Macedonia. They are all from the same family. I'll get the pages up this evening and link them to Bill Allen's.
Thank you again for all the effort. You've really made my day!

thank you so much for finding and photographing John R'r headstone.

By the looks of the stone, I can definitely see how difficult it was to find it.

Your efforts are deeply appreciated.

Thanks for all your work. It could be that the stone is worn too bad to read or even gone by now.
