Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was introduced to Find a Grave about 2000 by a cousin. Together we tried to add as many members of our family as we possibly could. It wasn't long before my cousin became the subject of his own memorial page. Eventually, I realized that there was more I could do than just search for my own family. So, I began trying to add photos whenever I could. Recently I became involved in a cemetery project in my area. A friend and I began searching through the hills, bushes and briers for long abandoned cemeteries, adding what we find to Find a Grave.
Find a Grave is a great site for people who are researching their family. We have made it our goal to do whatever we can to make it the very best it can be.

Duplicate of Cornelius O
Hi Donna,

Thanks for the heads up on the duplicate memorial.
It has been deleted.
You're so right, duplicates do create a lot of confusion.

RE: Uriah Ravenscraft
No, I didn't. But I'll be making another trip down there soon and I'll do that. It does look very clear and obvious in your photo. I took a photo of nearly every stone in that cemetery. I don't know how I missed it since it was early year with no snow. Thanks for your help!

RE: Uriah Ravenscraft
The reason why I'm asking is because I was at Rocky Springs Cemetery on 1/5/2011 and I did not see Uriah's headstone anywhere. Could there be two Rocky Springs cemeteries?

Uriah (or Uwriah) was my 3rd great grandfather. Can you tell me how long ago you photographed his headstone? I

RE: Stewart Family Cemetery (Owen Co)
Yes mam, I have heard it's a family cemetery that was or is near the Poplar Grove area if that helps. No biggie. Just as the weeks go by and something comes across to you, just keep me in mind.

Hi, you left this message on contributor Hollyann13's page last summer:

Memorial# 90821835 Elsie Sudduth
Just trying every possible way to get in touch with you. In edits I suggested a transfer. I also sent an email. This is my grandmother's sister and the only sibling that I have not been able to link. I would also like to add more info.

Looks like she's inactive.

You can submit an edit to add the parents so this will link her with the rest of the family. If she does not update the link requests in 21 days then they will automatically be linked for you.

You can also send an email to the Edit@findagrave dot com email with a link to the memorial and include the bio information you would like to have added to the memorial.

Hope this helps,

Stewart Family Cemetery (Owen Co)
Hi mam, I was wondering if by any chance you knew where the Stewart Family Cemetery in Owen County is or was? I live in Ga with most of my family from Owen County & grant County. But plan on coming back up to Ky for a visit and was hoping to search around a bit if it still existed. Again, just taking a chance and if you do not know, I understand. Thanks --Jerry
