Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the mayor of a small town in south central Kentucky, Smiths Grove. The town was incorporated in 1871, but the area began settlement in the 1790's. Smiths Grove has an old cemetery and I have spent hundreds of hours documenting the folks buried there, who owns the plots and photos of the monuments.

For a complete list of burials and monument photos visit the city website:

RE: Robert and Helen Schultz
Dad thought there should be a large Schultz stone and maybe a smaller one with his name on it to add to the memorials. I'm kinda of wanting to get these complete and then send the links to my 3 cousins. Any help would be welcome. It's a 5 hr trip for me. Dad has told me some interesting stories about helping Uncle Bob set stones.
Thanks for the work you are doing on this site.

RE: Robert and Helen Schultz
Thanks for the info, I do know that Uncle Bob owned a monument Co. I will double check things with my cousin so our tree is correct too.
Thanks again,
