Bio Photo 8/10/2013 - Happy dance!! Found a breakthrough the brick wall on the HILL/NELSON side.

I have been doing Genealogy since before there were computers....back in the days that it was a road trip for the long weekend to a Courthouse basement to prowl around old books that would crack if not handled w/care. In the days that you had to actually read the book to see if the person is actually mentioned. Now, just a click of the mouse and you have 'stolen' someone else hard work w/o a care in the world.
I know the computer world has made it easier to sit and read files after files and scan quickly, but if it was not for the old school hard reading and crunching the numbers and checking the counties....I don't believe I would have broken through the brick wall that has plagued me since 1979.
I'm only interested in managing close family of Grandparents, and Great Great Grandparents, and further back was well as the Aunts and Uncles (Great Great aunts & Uncles). Nice to know about cousins and in laws, but unless it helps in the progression of following the direct line, I'll let someone else manage the site.

RE: Kendall Maple Hill Cemetery
Thanks Susan my uncles full name is James Louis Kendall Jr
born 10 mar 1910 died 31 dec 1958
i just assumed he was near another family member that is why i provided the tip.
My father is 101 and we were just talking about Jimmy (his nick name). This is his older brother. He remembers the day he buried him,but doesn't remember the location. This will be a nice surprise for him if you find him. Thank you again.
Hope the weather is great for the walk.
Can you explain to me how you do this ,i have several requests near me and would like to return the favor. Are you looking up grave records somewhere to find the plot?

Request for Photo
Thank you for the photo of Eugene Taylor's grave! I'm still not sure if he's my relative, because I had never heard he was married. But armed with this evidence, I can ask living relatives! I really appreciate your help!
