Gone But Not Forgotten....


ALSO WHEN YOU TAKE A SCREENSHOT OF A FIND A GRAVE MEMORIAL, PLEASE INCLUDE THE CONTRIBUTOR'S NAME! I have seen so many posted on with the contributor left off & "courtesy of findagrave". Remember findagrave did not do the research, the contributor did, please give them credit!!

A little about me...
Glasgow High School graduate
Western Kentucky University:
Bachelor of Arts Degree
Masters - Folklore
I have always enjoyed oral history at an early age. Wish I had asked more questions now... In 1994 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer, went through surgery and chemo, I was given 3-6 years to live. So after I recovered from the treatments, in 1996 I decided to sell my home of 20 years and go on the road to research my family 1st-hand that were in my family files. I became a "fulltimeRVer" for six years; following the paths of my ancestors was a memorable experience and very humbling at times. I visited so many places I would never have visited otherwise... courthouses, libraries, cemeteries, meeting family and getting to actually stand on family land that my ancestors owned. Well, I am still here, I guess I still have ancestors to find and their stories to tell..... the oral history is out there, I just have to find the descendant that it was passed down to..

In addition to my family lines, I research Barren, Butler, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe and Warren Counties in KY. (South Central KY)

RE: Joseph D Grinstead
Good afternoon, I just hit the send button to soon and did not know how to delete the message to you. Your information is correct, I was looking at my data incorrectly. Sorry!! Thanks for your note

Mine is from the transcription, including plot #. I went ahead and deleted Richard before I realized you should have realized it is not who has the memorial up first, but who has it correctly placed.

Thank you for the info on J.L. Whitney; I updated his record and connected him to his partents, and added some information to his wife's memorial. Good stuff!

Owen Family Burial Grounds Cave City, KY
Hi Laura,
I'm currently in Cave City, and I visited Owen Family Burial Grounds. I took a few pictures of stones from there and will be adding them as I receive Wifi reception. Some memorials say 'no marker', so I was letting you know that I'm adding some photos corresponding to those.

Bugging you
I hope you don't mind, that I have been making a pest of myself lately, with memorial connections. I'm just worried that the people who know the connections may pass on. I've lost a few family members who died without anyone to pass on the info to. Forgive for being a pest, and trying real hard to make sure they all have a flower, I do forget at times. Thanks again for all of your hard work on Find A Grave, your a true god send to many of us

Hi Laura,
A while back you found and shared a photo and the death date of my husband's great aunt. Thank you so much. I read the bio data with interest and wanted to let you know the following: Mary Strong left the house on Nantucket to her 1st cousin 1x removed George Wilson Penny Jr., who then left it to his daughter Clarissa Penny Porter. Various magazine articles have misidentified their relationship.
