|Bio and Links|
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, I've lived for the last fifteen years in the historic Licking Riverside neighborhood of Covington directly across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, and have been pursuing my ancestry since 1983. A sense of urgency came over me a couple of years ago when I witnessed the effects of climate and vandalism on the grave sites of some of my ancestors in Kentucky, which were now crumbling stone where carved gravemarkers once stood. I had assumed na´vely they would always be there for me to visit without concern and regretted I hadn't photographed them in their prime. An occurrence such as Superstorm Sandy (Oct. 29, 2012) further demonstrates the temporal nature of these stone testaments to our families. Witness the damage around some of the gravestones of my great-grandmother Fausta May Rogers's ancestors in the Presbyterian churchyard at Westfield, New Jersey, particularly those of Samuel Roberson (1721-1778), his wife Hannah Crane (1725-1803), and his parents John (1690-1740) and Mary Roberson (1690-1763). They escaped being damaged by just inches. I appreciate all the assistance from the other contributors at Find A Grave. Thanks for all you do.|

Thank you so much for posting a photo of my 2nd great grandmother, Mary Rosenstock Rademaker. It is such a beautiful photo of the monument and the close up of the inscription is very legible.

|Linda Seiter Herman||Boyle and gaunt family tree|
I live in Cincinnati and I am tracing my family tree. My 2nd great uncle is John Boyle. My 2nd great grandmother was John's sister. She was married to Nathan Gaunt my 2nd great grandfather.
Nathan Gaunt, William Boyle and David William Boyle are buried in highland cemetery in ft Mitchell KY. After searching for their graves I found out through the office that none of them have headstones. I plan on purchasing headstones for them in June and then it will take about 6 weeks for them to place the markers. I also found that the daughter of John and Margaret who is Agnes Elizabeth Boyle is buried near them and she does not have a marker either
After I purchase the other markers for the other family members I will see what I can do to purchase a marker for Agnes Elizabeth.
Is he part of your line. This one is in Calhoun GA. Just saw the name in a Homestead property book for that area. I scanned the name and map.
