|Lee Ailshie||RE: William Kilgore|
Hello Vicki and thanks for your reply. It's nice to hear that we are both related to William. Could you please link up the following on William Kilgore's record?
Wife - Fronia Belle Bible Kilgore - 113440335 (you manage her record currently)
Father - John Archibald Kilgore - 7544493
Mother - Susan Angeline Ealey Kilgore - 7544494
I'm also pretty confident that William's middle name was Andrew.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
Hi Vicki...you are very welcome!

Hi Vicki, I accidently learned how to take a picture off. So there is not a duplicate pic on Paul Maphis now.

Guess you thought I forgot you, I finished up Ebenezer Cemetery the other day, sorry to say I didn't find the other graves you have requested. There could be several possibilities, there are a lot of unmarked graves....actually they are marked with rocks but no names. The Caretaker told me a lot of them were from an influenza epidemic. Another thing could be that there was just a funeral home marker on the plot, and it has been destroyed by weather, mowing, etc. I went through and took pics of every single marker....but the Billion Graves App for an Android phone doesn't always work right. I would take say 300+ pics and while uploading some just up and disappeared. Then I'd get a message to check and see which ones were missing......yeah like I'm gonna remember. So it is possible that I did take a pic of the marker and the app screwed it up. What a headache this app has been. For instance a stone with two names on it (John & Jane Doe). I would take a pic of the whole thing, then a closeup of each name or military marker. I'd go home upload and transcribe, the app would have the Doe Stone, with John Doe, and Mary Smith. Jane Doe wound up somewhere else down the line. And if that's not bad enough if you look on Billion Graves at Ebenezer Cemetery, (there are markers for each grave photographed) some of the markers on the map aren't even in the Cemetery they are down the road. I guess I should have bought an I Phone, but I really like my Droid. Anyways I will be out taking more pics hopefully all week at other cemeteries maybe I'll find somebody else you are looking for.

I claimed Daisy's request and will post the photo tomorrow. Glad I could help!
Vicki--I apologize for the quality of the Farthing photos. Fannie's says:

I tried to get the inscription, but it is so worn I couldn't get enough letters figured out to make sense of it. As to Amelia and John, I always cringe when I find one of those gray stones with raised gray letters, because they just do not photograph well, in sun or shade. I tried a close-up, but it wasn't any better than the full shot. I think theirs just had their names and dates. That cemetery is not close to my home, but if I ever get over there again, I will write it all down for you.

I was on Wayne's find a grave page when I answered your message :) I can only claim 20 at a time so we switched over to his so we could claim all we found Saturday. I will recheck my photos tomorrow and see if I took any extra shots and can email if you'd like. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I took it off the find a grave page because of all the bully's :) Feel free to use the photos however you like, I don't do this for credit, I do it to help wonderful people like you who are looking for their ancestors , Connie
Hi Vicki, you are very welcome, it was our pleasure. We tried to find all your requests , could not find the Steers, but the cemetery was quite large and we stopped without a list , used our phones to look for names. Just on case you didn't notice, the Sewards were on one side of the stone and the Vrooms? were on the other side, didn't notice at first as we split up and each take a couple rows. Inside the mausoleum were some Seymour's too. We got lucky and met a cop who was also the Vice President of the cemetery board and he had a key and let us in. Just so you know this is a beautiful, well maintained cemetery. His name is John Stretch and was very helpful and knowledgable about oak grove . Take care , Connie and Wayne Clark, Auburn, Illinois

Hi Vicki, As you probably know by now, I added the last three pics for you. I will be in MD the next couple of days so the rest of Ebenezer will have to wait.
