DO NOT LEAVE TRANSFER/SAC REQUESTS ON MY WALL HERE. PLEASE SEND AN EDIT. IF YOU LEAVE ANY REQUEST, IT WILL BE DELETED. SORRY TO HAVE TO BE THIS WAY, BUT IT'S MUCH EASIER TO RECEIVE AN EMAIL. ALSO, PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE PERSON. IF I AM NOT RELATED, I WILL TRANSFER TO YOU.

*SOAPBOX* I am trying to correct Findagrave contributor DKBs errors.

I am currently researching every memorial I have to find any information that can make the memorial more valuable to others. As of 08/28/14, research is complete at the following:
Trigg County Cemeteries:
Alexander Cunningham Cemetery
Alfred Herndon Cemetery
Atkins Cemetery
Bacon-Crump Cemetery
Baker Cemeteries
Balentine Cemetery
Barnett Cemetery
Bayliss Cemetery
Bethel Church Cemetery
Blakeley Cemetery
Blanks Cemetery (All 3)
Blunt Turner
Bridges Cemetery
Bristoe Lancaster
Bryant Cemetery
Burbridge Cemetery
Burke Cemetery (both)
Cain Cemetery
Calhoun-Joiner Cemetery
Cantrell Cemetery
Carloss Cemetery
Carney Cemetery
Carr Cemetery (both)
Cerulean Cemetery
Dooling or Bridges Cemetery A-A
Drury Bridges Cemetery
Griff Calhoun Cemetery
Jeff Stewart Cemetery
I.N. Burnett Cemetery
Little Mill aka Bacon Cemetery
Robertson-Hite Cemetery
Skinner Calhoun Cemetery
Wall Cemetery
William Bridges Cemetery
Caldwell County Cemeteries:
Blue Spring Cemetery
Christian County Cemeteries:
Bainbridge Grove Cemetery
Adams
Hale Cemetery

This research is a long on-going process. I enjoy researching my family and learning about others that I never got to know. I am only here to find my family, but spend countless hours helping others -IT IS WHAT I ENJOY DOING. If you've not stepped foot in Christian County or Trigg County, then don't assume that you know more about a cemetery.

Family names: Stewart, Turner, Goodwin, Haydon, Larkins, Atwood, Wells, Boren from the Christian County/Trigg County, KY Area.
From Smith County, TN the Murray/Gibbs Family. The Murray line has led me to the Gross, Madden, Hewitt, Ferguson, Blossom, Roe and so many more names.
____________________________________________
I am from Christian County, Kentucky. I lived in Cerulean, Gracey, and Hopkinsville my entire life until 16 years ago when I moved to Tennessee.

So everyone understands my memorials I enter...I am not a NUMBERS kind of member. I am a GENEALOGY kind of member. I don't like people who are rude and numbers people. It's about OUR family history being done correct. I maintain the majority of the memorials in Robertson-Hite Cemetery in Trigg County, Ky. Kathleen Boyd transferred them all to me after I requested the Larkins to be transferred. She maintains a lot of memorials as she has taken on her husband's since he went home to be with the Lord. I will honor and maintain each memorial with the highest respect. _______________________________________________

When I go to a cemetery that has my family members in it, I enjoy taking pictures of the entire cemetery (time permitting). I do not have any issues with anyone taking and using my pictures of the headstones that are in your family tree. However, if I have added pics of a person, please ask before you use them. If I have added a member of your family tree to Find A Grave and it is NOT in my tree, I will be more than happy to transfer it to you. I take pics and add memorials to Find a Grave in hopes that it helps someone else find who they are looking for as well. If anyone has information on any memorial that I have added,please send me a note thru the edit link on the memorial. I will be happy to update/link family members. It's about our history.....keeping everyone together for our future generations to have.

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my father's trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

Happy Graving! I never thought I would enjoy something so much! Be blessed folks!

RE: Walker Pettit
Sorry, I though you already had him in your cemetery. I will get his obit Thursday. Did I have his obit in the Hopkinsville Cemetery? I didn't even look, when you said he wasn't in this cemetery I just deleted it. Thanks Terri.

RE: There you go again
I actually had no idea that was your birthday. You share a birthday with my Mom. The month and date anyway. That is what had me on Findagrave the other day. Hope your week is going well and your birthday was a good one.

Brandy, you're fast processing edits! After I sent the "Daniel" edit, I went to my page to delete the request so I could also submit the middle name but you had already processed it. You go, girl! Guess you'll have to hit that tab again because I'm about to submit his middle name.

Best regards,
Debbie

RE: Not correct.
Brandy, thanks for the information on add/edits. I'm still in the learning mold and appreciate your input. I'll add Hazel Noel's mother with correct number. Thanks again for your assistance. I have several family members that I need to add parents and spouses and this will make it easier on all.
Have a great weekend,
Vernon

Cerulean, KY
Hi:
I just spent the better part of a beautiful day traipsing around Trigg Co Cemeteries! Iam looking for the grave ofJefferson Jones. You listed his wife Burnetta as being buried in Kenady and I was hoping he might be there. I could not find it today due to spotty cell service, but now find out I drove right past to get to I24 ;)I am also looking for Robert Allen Phillips who died in 1879 while in Cerulean. Jefferson Jones died around 1890...we are not sure. The families are related as each contributed a parent to my ancestor Grace Phillips Lewis. I saw lots of Stewarts today, as well as Turners. Many more Cemeteries to go!
Keep up the good work!

Bridges Corrections
Brandy,

AS usual, you are right again! I'll delete my Drewry Bridges Cemetery. I think the problem is that the Cemetery that has the same stones listed is named incorrectly.

The picture of the cemetery clearly shows the name spelled "Drewry Bridges Cemetery" but it shows spelled as "Drury Bridges Cemetery" on this site. I didn't find it so I started another Cemetery with the same names.

I requested that the owner correct the spelling.

Thanks for pointing out my mistake!

RE: Hey!!
Brandy,

Your work is impeccable and will be such a value to people for generations to come. Thanks for all you do and thanks for transferring Lonas Norman to me.

His story is very interesting as he died of alcohol poisoning with contributory factors of environment and habit. I was told by his sister, who recollects her Mother told her that he was found in a ditch outside the Todd Co., KY home in January (very cold). He obviously had a drinking problem and likely had a still in Norman's hollow in Todd Co., KY although I have no proof of that.

This 1929 death by alcohol poisoning was also during the prohibition period in the US so the story is interesting as the alcohol was illegal. One can only imagine what was going on with this young man's life back then. It is very sad his life ended this way.

Thanks Again!!

Chad

how we are related
Hi Brandy,
I got around to looking to see how we are related. My great grandmother was Marthena Goode Newsome who was married to Thomas White Newsome (State Representative), whose son, Henry, was my grandfather.

Hello Brandy
Don't let those mean jerks get to you. They have no idea how many hours one puts into this, and that it IS labor, but a labor of love!
Hang in there, you're doing a great job! Don't let them get to you.
I saw the gifts you left on our mutual relatives' memorials. :0)
Maybe one day we can meet, but my hubs hasn't gotten into graving or ancestry...yet! Maybe I can talk him into a vacation to your state. Lol!
