Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Lexington, Kentucky area and have been interested in genealogy since I was a teenager. I began my early research transcribing my maternal grandmother's recollections of family history, and then verifying and documenting her memories with census records and tombstone inscriptions.

I am strictly an amateur, but am committed to being as methodical and accurate as possible. I prefer to only list memorials for graves I have visited and photographed. In addition, since I found Find A Grave, I happily photograph graves of non-relatives in nearby cemeteries. I want to help people find their ancestors and loved ones so they are not forgotten.

If you find I am managing a relative's memorial, contact me. I will happily transfer a memorial, unless it is someone I am more closely related to.

Their headstones are just in front of Edward Isaac Reed. Do you know if they are related?

I see in photo request for these two people in Old Union Church Cemetery,Loradale,Ky,that you were not able to find them. I am their fifth great grandaughter from Madison Co, Ohio. I do genealogy also. They are buried there, but their markers are not there,probably destroyed,or buried (not likely)but they can not be found.Thanks so much for looking,but wanted to let you know you will not fid them.

Spurr family, Lex. Cem.
Hi, Penelope
I was thrilled to see all the photos of the Spurr family headstones that you have added to F.A.G. Just a couple of years ago, there weren't many at all. May I have permission to use these photos on my family tree on Thank you for all the good work you are doing - I have found dates that I lacked and correct spelling of some names. Regards, Diane
