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 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 Allen, Barren, Butler, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe and Warren Counties in KY. (South Central KY)

|nancy geppert||pic of Joseph W. Evans' grave stone|
Thank you so much for the photo of my 2 great grandfather, Joseph W. Evans. I believe he married two times. First to my 2 great grandmother, Elizabeth Warder, in 1824 and later to Matilda Ritter in 1840.
Again, I greatly appreciate your time and kindness!
|Sue Schlueter||Kinslow Cemetery #5|
While searching for the graves of my husband's ancestors, I discovered your description/comments explaining that the Kinslow#5 cemetery was destroyed. I believe my husband's ggggrandfather, Andrew Carpenter Kinslow was buried there. I was hoping to take a picture of his headstone and visit his grave. Can you tell me what happened to those graves ? Were the bodies moved elsewhere? We live in Texas but came the Barren County this week to do some genealogy research. I really appreciate any info you can give me.
|Tom||RE: Mary Ford|
John L and Mary Ford are listed as being in Fairview Cemetery Section J Row 8.
I could not find any listings for Johns father or mother. Fairview would not been opened when either one of them died so Old Brownstown is a good bet I can not verify it. John Sr. had a brief mention in the Seymour Times issue of March 27, 1862 which gave his date of death as March 18, 1862.
If the parents were moved to Fairview at a later date they do not have markers.

|Kerma ||Nancy Jane Gist Williams|
I have seen your memorial for Nancy Jane Gist Williams. I am seeking information about her sister Martha Ann Gist Headrick and her parents Bayless and Nancy Ray Gist. I have the information in the Christopher Gist book but do not have proof of those dates. Do you have information that might help me? I would appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you.

|Andrea Price||Crenshaw Cemetery in KY|
Thanks for you work. I can't believe you just posted information (yesterday?) and here I am already appreciating it.
|David L Gray||RE: Thomas Smithwick photos|
These were among the possessions of Ed Baker (150144556), a high school classmate. Several classmates & I cleaned out his apartment after he died. His mother had albums of old family photos, including Baker & Michel. These are now in the possession of Ed's sister Sharon, after I scanned them. You can contact me at email@example.com if you want more information. I have a genealogy file of about 500 persons in his family.
|Dorothy E. Hare Wigginton||Thanks for change of cemetery name|
Thanks Laura for the change of cemetery name for Asenath "Senie" Bewley Britt and her husband John F Britt. I had them in the Bewley Burial Ground and moved them to Pleasant Home Cemetery via your request. I couldn't find them on the Barren County Cemetery Site or the Book, Barren County Cemetery Records in this cemetery, but I do see it list this cemetery in Bewleytown section of Barren County...You are such a great helper to keep me straight on my finds....Thank you so much.
