I would like to thank everyone whose hard work has been so beneficial to researchers world-wide. This is an amazing website!|
Also, a special thanks goes out to the volunteers in my area who have done such a wonderful job. You all are my inspiration.
My mission is to pay it forward by helping others find ancestors who have been lost by time, distance, and untold stories.
This project is like a giant puzzle that a million people are working, and we all know the majority of the pieces are missing!

Thank you so much for taking so many photos of the Newman clan. Finding the tombstone confirmed so many pieces of James' story that I could continue other research. I
I noticed on the tombstone that it says our father and our mother. Because of the time period (census records without all the names of family members, death index that starts later, and other issues) I was wondering if you knew who the children were. I got the obit of Ann Newman from the WIllard Library but there was no mention of her children. Do you remember if the children are buried near this grave site? Are there cemetery records available? Is there another local source you recommend? Thanks in advance and I hope you are having beautiful weather!

I did not think Montgomery seemed correct. Thank you!

The photo of the tombstone for Alex & Dora Shields is actually taken at Chaplin Fork Cemetery. While Dora is buried at Maple Grove Cemetery next to her son Alex, only her husband Alex is buried at Chaplin Fork. Therefore, the photo should only be applied for Alex's memorial at Chaplin Fork. Thank you - Bill Cheatham

Thank you so much for taking and adding the photo of Lucy and her husband, Thomas. Such a great job considering the deterioration of the stone, I can read it. Thanks again.

I thought I would point out that the children you list all have the last name of Todd, which is the married name of his daughter Myrtle.
Clarence "Peck" Hayes, b July 23, 1878, was a poet and died in 1908 - your find a grave came to my attention because of "Peck" who was engaged to my grandmother before he died.

I don't believe I ever thanked you for the photos and transfer of her memorial. Sorry for the delay. Many thanks!
Both transfers complete
|Brenda Braden Roper||Pleasant Pendergrass|
Lee, Sheila transferred this memorial over to me. I think this is my gg grandfather. Next to him their is a grave marker of Susan Pendergraff. This should be his daughter in law. So far my research shows that the Pendergrass are the same as Pendergraff. they came from around St. Louis, Missouri. I don't know when the name was changed but ancestry says that the name was changed. Susan is my grandfathers mother. I hope this is right. First I thought that it was her husband but in the family bible it says Plez that was what they called him. My grandmother only has his name but she was a Sanders and have a lot of information on her side, not much on grandpa's side. Susan lived with grandpa in Providence, KY, I got her obit. If I have it right???? If you happen to find out anything let me know.

I was into this several years ago and it didn't take a lot to get me confused. I just created memorials from the grave stone photos I took from walking the cemeteries. I did not do all that you are doing as far as other research. Thanks for all you are doing to correct my mistakes. I am sure I have done my share and not even realized them at the time. Keep sending edits and corrections. I appreciate what you are doing and the families of those there do/will too. :-)
