Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am new to this and want to be able to help others if I can like I have been helped. I am in a wheel chair due to auto accident when I was 29 but I am able to get out and search cemeteries in order to help others. Been searching for my ancestors since 2003 when I got my computer before that I spent days at the Louisville library searching their records and have some good luck and some stone walls . I go into genealogy chat to learn more . Every day is a learning experience for me .So far most of my family am searching is in KY.

I was born and raised in Louisville,KY,so I know Louiville pretty well and its easy for me to search their cemeteries as well as the few that are close to me . The majority of my family is buried at Cave Hill and Resthaven but I can go to any of them .

My parents are Ruth L Baker Powell Beasy, her parents were Nellie Frances Emmons Baker and Ernest L Baker Sr. her gr grandparents were Charles L Emmons who was married to a Mary Thompson Emmons. Her gr grandparents on the Baker side was Levi Baker and Ida Bell Arnold

My father was Vernon Powell, his parents were Fred Powell Gr grandparents were Edward Lawrence Powell and Mattie Belle Morrison Powell. Zowa F. LaCrosse Powell ( his mother) was the daughter of daughter of Philip LaCrosse of Montreal Canada and Gabrielle Cameron LaCrosse Thomas

Hi Sandra,

Sorry for the confusion, I'm new to Find A Grave and wasn't aware how to download photos. Got that part figured out, my cousin showed how. Again, sorry for confusion and thanks for your help. Toni.

HI Sandra! Thanks so much for your prompt response to my photo request. I only tonight realized that I had an interment record for that grave and was just about to post it, when I saw the email saying that you had been successful. I hope it wasn't too difficult to find. I really appreciate your providing me another piece of my family puzzle. :-) Debbie

Thank you so much for finding and photographing this headstone. It's wonderful to see the picture of the actual resting place of this Civil War soldier. Again, thank you!

RE: requests
Thank you again for adding the photos. Don't worry if you don't have time to do them. I would like as many veterans at New Albany to have photos when possible. Don't want to wear you out. I am trying to remember to do them by section to make it a little easier. have a good week.

You weren't kidding about "hunting." Most of my time is spent in Zachary Taylor, where A-1 is next to A-2, which is next to A-3... NANC is a bit creative with their layout. All but one grave I photographed today was found more or less by accident. Ha ha.
Take it easy.

no worries
You're fine, don't worry about a thing. Findagrave isn't about keeping score, and I have no problems with anything you've asked. I'll be heading to New Albany tomorrow, and since I have the day off, I figured it would be a good chance to take care of some requests at New Albany. Once I finish Zachary Taylor, I will probably try to tackle Louisville Memorial Gardens East, as I am local to that. Almost no graves have been entered, so it'll be some work, but I've got the time. After that, I'll try Cave Hill National Cemetery.

I will leave the requests from Russh for you. I am trying to hit some of the local cemeteries in their entirety, grave by grave. Sadly, the "unknowns" from New Albany weren't put into the system, so I am picking through those as I get time. If I claim something you want, please let me know and I will "un-claim" it. Best wishes for you and yours.
