Gone But Not Forgotten....


ALSO WHEN YOU TAKE A SCREENSHOT OF A FIND A GRAVE MEMORIAL, PLEASE INCLUDE THE CONTRIBUTOR'S NAME! I have seen so many posted on with the contributor left off & "courtesy of findagrave". Remember findagrave did not do the research, the contributor did, please give them credit!!

A little about me...
Glasgow High School graduate
Western Kentucky University:
Bachelor of Arts Degree
Masters - Folklore
I have always enjoyed oral history at an early age. Wish I had asked more questions now... In 1994 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer, went through surgery and chemo, I was given 3-6 years to live. So after I recovered from the treatments, in 1996 I decided to sell my home of 20 years and go on the road to research my family 1st-hand that were in my family files. I became a "fulltimeRVer" for six years; following the paths of my ancestors was a memorable experience and very humbling at times. I visited so many places I would never have visited otherwise... courthouses, libraries, cemeteries, meeting family and getting to actually stand on family land that my ancestors owned. Well, I am still here, I guess I still have ancestors to find and their stories to tell..... the oral history is out there, I just have to find the descendant that it was passed down to..

In addition to my family lines, I research Barren, Butler, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe and Warren Counties in KY. (South Central KY)

You have Todd Oliver as the son of Horace, I'm pretty sure he was Freddie's son?

RE: Barlow-Mansfield Cemetery..
I have some more photos lost in the ether. I'm about done for the night. I've taken pictures of every engraved stone in the cemetery. I've enjoyed it. May have to go back for a couple of retakes, because of bushes.

Bridges Cemetery
None of the stones that are there can be read with any type of accuracy. It looked to me if they had any script, it had been hand carved, and is now deteriorated. The sign on the tree gives a list of confirmed burials from the Bridges descendants. I posted it on each memorial.
