Bio Photo Like a tiny seed
That fell to earth.
When no one cared
Or knew it's worth.

Through wind and rain
Sleet and snow.
It sprouted roots.
And began to grow.

Now Whoever thought
That you and me.
Would be one branch
Of that mighty tree.

Tammy Rupp
Help or info needed
Hello Sherry my name is Tammy Rupp my grandfather was Lewis Daniel Jenkins, his father Clarence, his James Harvey, and his father was Francis Marion Jenkins.
Please bare with me a moment I've only really just been researching for the last 2 months and I'm kind of at a loss as to how to word this.
Ever since I was little I have been told that there is Cherokee Indian in us. I was talking to my mother a couple weeks ago and she says all she can remember is that she thinks it has something to do with the Montgomery side. Now Francis's first wife Synthia I found a death record for her that says her father was Ben Montgomery. I'm assuming him and Elizabeth divorced or he died. I cant find anything of proof after that. Francis's mother Sarah was a Montgomery as well. I've noticed on the find a grave website there is no last name for her mother Elizabeth. For the amount of Indian I remember my grandfather saying he had in him; in order for that to work out or even be close it has to be Synthia, Francis's wife or his mother, Elizabeth.
I guess I'm asking have you ever heard about the Indian or have you found any proof you would be willing to share with me.
Hind sight. I wish I had started this back when my grandfather and great grandmother Edna was still alive.
Oh, my mother said that Edna my great grandmother did call or write (I cant remember which, Sandy, my mother told me) the Indian side of us and that they were in Oklahoma. I'm gonna assume the reservation.
Any help you can throw my way or any errors I might have that need fixed would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Just in case my e-mail is

Mouth of Coon
I've noticed that there are two Find-a-Grave listings that could lead to further confusion. The listing for "Mouth of Coon" has just 25 memorials while the listing for "Howard Mouth of Coon Creek" has more than 60 memorials. Do you think it would be wise to move the memorials from the smaller into the larger, since both listings are for the same cemetery? I know this can never be "perfect"; but, I do think we're moving in the right direction. Thanks for letting me pester you again.

RE: Howard Cemeteries in Magoffin County
Thank you for your cooperation, Sherry. I'll start doing them a few at a time, as time permits. One think I've noticed is that the Howard/Bloomington is, according to Find-a-Grave, also known as the Head of Coon. I'm convinced that the cemetery at the intersection of 2019 and 1081 was known as the Howard Cemetery or the Mouth of Coon Cemetery. The Head of Coon cemetery is located miles up Route 1081, past Maggard. To be more accurate, a Find-a-Grave listing needs to exist for Head of Coon and all appropriate memorials need to be moved there. I guess the best way to do it is one memorial at a time! Thanks again; together, we can make it better.

Howard Cemeteries in Magoffin County
You may think I need to mind my own business; but, I won't assume that about you. I have noticed several inconsistencies in the Find-a-Grave memorials regarding Howards and other Magoffin County families. I have spent many hours touring the cemeteries and additional hours comparing the Find-a-Grave memorials with the Magoffin County Historical Society's 4 volume cemetery books, published in 1979. Here is an example of what I've found: Regarding the Find-a-Grave cemetery now known as the Howard/Bloomington cemetery, aka Head of Coon cemetery...There is no Howard Cemetery at Bloomington; but there is a Howard Cemetery at the intersection of Routes 1081 and 2019. When the cemeteries were recorded by Roy Preston and others in 1979, they referred to this cemetery as the Howard Cemetery and also as the Mouth of Coon Cemetery. They also recorded other cemeteries, including the Head of Coon Cemetery, the Mose Howard Cemetery, the Howard Cemetery on the right fork of Pricey Creek, the Jack Howard Cemetery on Corbett Howard's farm, and the Richard French Howard Cemetery on Courtney Howard's farm on Coon Creek. When I compared the "Howard/Bloomington" listings with the MCHS cemetery books, I found 47 memorials that were in the "Howard/Bloomington" list that should be in the Head of Coon Cemetery. There were 20 that should be in the Mose Howard Cemetery, 34 that should be in the Mouth of Coon Cemetery, one that should be in the Jack Howard Cemetery, 4 that should be in the Howard Cemetery on Pricey, and 3 that should be in the Richard French Howard Cemetery. If we cooperate, we can fix this broken situation. That is up to you and possibly other contributors. By the way, the GPS coordinates that are listed with the "Howard/Bloomington" Cemetery are actually for the Howard Cemetery on Pricey, where there are only a half-dozen graves. I was there about a month ago. I wish you would correspond with me so we can make this situation better. I trust that you will not ignore this.

I'm the great great granddaughter of John Montgomery Jr.'s son James H. Montgomery. I've read that his grave might have been moved by a coal mining company and I can't find any reference to it -- a story in The Montgomery Family series by the Magoffin Count Historical Society says he was buried initially by his house near Licking Station. Since I see that you have wonderful family photos but that here is no memorial to James H. Montgomery (1821 - 1890?) because the grave might not be found, I'm wondering if you have any photos of him and his family? I'm working on the family history for my daughter and granddaughters and we have no photos of Montgomery's beyond my great grandfather, James H.'s son, John Montgomery b. 1846. Thank you for all your impressive work on the family on findagrave. I enjoy seeing all of it. Best wishes, Suzanne A
