Noah Vanover
Hi Ms Green, my name is David Noe and I live in Harlan. I am trying to get some information on Noah Vanover, I have found a Will recorded listing Lois Vanover as his wife. Do you know if Noah Vanover remarried after Lottie passed away? And if so, did he have children with Lois Vanover? I am not positive if the Will I found is the same Noah Vanover, but it lists Baxter as his address. I appreciate your time.
Thank You
David Noe

Memorial Marker
I just noticed you were trying to raise funds for a memorial marker for Billy and Judy Ensley, have you been able to accomplish this yet? Billy and Judy are my gggggrandparents - Calvin Williams, Mattie Ensley Williams, Alfred Sherman Ensley, Robert Ensley, Billy Ensley. I have visited this cemetery and found it to be a beautiful, peaceful place. You could feel it! I would love to know they had some type of marker.

Thank you for an update.

RE: Transfers Done
Mintie Howard Cooper is the divorced wife of James Alvis Cooper. James was the brother to Elvin Levi Cooper and my Parlia Cooper Gross Wilson. I sent you edit requests, and will also take over maintenance if you would like.

I think that your Lisenbee Cemetery and my Cooper Cemetery are one large cemetery. You were there, is it possible that these two groupings of headstones are actually in the same cemetery. I have found that cemeteries in Harlan County often went by numerous names (Nolan for Dewey Sharp... who is related to the Coopers, Cooper for my Cooper family, and Lisenbee for your family burials). If you think they are the same, then I will request a merge from the Find A Grave administrators into your Lisenbee with alternate names for the cemetery being Cooper and Nolan (as indicated on death records and military headstone requests).

Let me know your thoughts on this. The empty space between the two groupings of headstones could contain burials that were never marked (often the case in Harlan County as I have many, many family members with no headstone there).

Thanks for everything!

RE: Cooper Cemetery, Baxter KY
I am glad that your Lisenbee cousins decided to show you their family cemetery. How are they related to the Cooper family? Thank you for making sure the map coordinates and description to the cemetery were correct. I am assuming that the gate is much closer to the beginning of the Housing Drive and just past the driveway that is off to the left on Housing Drive?

I will take you on on the offer for a transfer, and will submit the requests now.

Thanks for everything!

Cooper Cemetery
Thank you so much! I had made a visit to Harlan County, Kentucky several years ago. I knew approximately where the cemetery was. We turned onto Intermont Rd, but went past Housing Drive and ended up in the residential area above there. We eneded up turning around and giving up. Trying to find the location of this cemetery has been a focus of my attention off and on since then. It is nice to finally have a headstone picture of my great great grandmother.

I have updated the cemetery information with map coordinates and a description of the location. Can you please take a look at what I have entered and confirm that it is correct for me?

I will be sending you updates for everything that
I know about the interments of my other family members you found there. Sallie's maiden name was Harris. I will send you this via memorial edits. I do not know when she died.

Thanks again!
