Bio and Links
Bio Photo I honor these ancestors with a small memorial.

I will share any information you may be interested in having or add more that you want to add. You may use all photos and histories and information --
I'm grateful to the vast number of people who volunteer their time to get my pictures!! Thank you.

PLEASE note: I cannot "add" children or siblings. You have to make the "link" as a request on that persons memorial as an Edit -- and use the Find A Grave Memorial# when you make the request. If there is not an existing memorial for the sibling or child, you can create a new memorial and make the "links" yourself. It's not as simple as just typing in the name, it is actually linked to a memorial of the person and requires time, research and sourcing of where the person is buried.

PLEASE make ALL corrections, added history or additional information, links to parents or spouse, and transfer requests via the "edit tab" on the memorial.

I follow findagrave guidelines for transfer requests: Editing & Correcting Memorial Information: Click on: "How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?"

Joseph Geer
I hope you can fill me in...I was under the impression that Mildred, with whom he shares a headstone, was is spouse, however someone else asked me make the change to Lula (I have no idea who at this time. I will be glad to help in any way I can...was Joseph married to Mildred?

Your message
I don't believe Lula was married to Joseph Geer. The link on your site is incorrect. That Joseph has a different spouse on his headstone. Lula was married to a John R. Geer 18421936 ... it doesn't appear his memorial has been created.


I can not remove link because it was linked from another memorial. Thanks

I would love to have a clearer higher resolution picture of Thomas Stand Bult, please. I have a feeling that I will be writing often with this request. Are we related?

I so appreciate the photo of my G-Great Aunt Eliza Bult Hathaway that you added. She look very much like my Dad's sister. I would so appreciate if their was anyway you could send me another higher resolution photo? I print off my photos to help me and the ones from the computer end up look like wavy with lots of small patches to create an image. I can send you my email so that it would load quicker.
With Deepest Appreciation,

RE: Thanks, Mary E. Green Photo
Thanks for your note. I'm sorry to say I don't have any additional information on Mary's husband, but please do contact the Fairmount office and they can look it up for you any information attached to Mary Green's burial. Sometimes they have spouses listed. I'd do it, except this cemetery is quite busy and the office is unable to help much with such details unless the request comes from a family member directly. This cemetery keeps Find A Grave volunteers quite busy!

Best wishes,

Linda -

I am related to ALL the DeSpains as the NC branch migrated to Green County, Kentucky. I've learned that many migrated from Greensburg, Hodgenville (LaRue County, KY) and Campbellsville (Taylor County, KY) to ILLINOIS, TEXAS, and then out west to ARIZONA, WYOMING & UTAH.

The Western DeSpains converted to the Mormon religion. My Green Cty, KY branch moved to southern Indiana (New Albany) and Louisville, KY.

I'm descended from the immigrant, Jean DeSpaigne that moved from France to England in the late 1500's.

Dear L -

From one "L" to another, I have really enjoyed your pages on here. I can only imagine the blood, sweat, tears, and time you put into this line. I am a DIRECT DESCENDENT of the DeSpains. This is my FAVORITE line of all of my ancestral lines. Thank you so much for your contributions to this extraordinary line of ancestors!

Pam Thompson
Hello, in a message that you sent to HESM regarding Clarissa Cole/Lydia Paine you referenced information provided by Pam Thompson. I believe that she is updating a book on the descendants of James Cole, and I would like to contact her and exchange information. I am a James Cole descendant via James>Hugh>John>John>Isaac>Burden>Nathaniel.Horatio>Erastus>Waldo etc and would like to provide information for her book. Would it be possible to provide her contact information or at least provide her my find a grave contact information should she wish to contact me?

Any help that you could provide would be appreciated.
