Permission to copy headstone
I'm asking permission to use one of your photos from Find A Grave for Susannah "Susan" Hamilton Massey buried in the Freedom Cemetery, Science Hill, Pulaski Co, KY. She is the wife of one of my husband's distant cousins and we would like to include your photo of her headstone in our ancestry tree. Thank you for all your work with Find A Grave. Phyllis Nelson

Emaline Thompson Cummins

Are you related to Emaline somehow? I realized your last name was Thompson but that may have been but a coincidence... I just wondered because you seem to have a lot to do with the Cummins Family...

Your Friend,

Emaline Thompson Cummins

Emaline is my X3 Great Grandmother on my father's side and I was wondering how you knew she was buried in Rosebank Cemetery in Mulberry Kansas.

Because, she died out of Kansas in Kentucky I think. She would've had to had her body shipped here by her relatives, I personally, can't find a reason or a connection to why she'd be buried there.

The Mulberry Records burned in the '20s so there is no record of her being there. She has no stone whatsoever. I'm sure you had some genealogy backing the fact that she was buried there. I just wondered what it was.

My grandmother said she had heard stories from her parents that some of her father's family (Would've included Emaline) was buried in the old section of the cemetery, without a stone. But she can't remember who or where they are.

Please let me know. My Email is

Are you a member of the Aaron Smith family. I have just traced my 3rd great-grandmother Malinda Susan Smith to this family.

I noticed you left a message on the memorial regarding John Gouge that he couldn't have been buried there because the cemetery wasn't created until much later after his death. Thanks for correcting misinformation.

Are you a also a descendant of John Gouge? I'm a direct descendant through his son, Joel Gouge. I'm wondering if you have any idea where he might be buried.

John J Proctor
I was wondering if you found any additional data relating to the photo posted on Find A Grave Memorial 65337291 John J Proctor. b. 26 Mar 1813 Hamilton, IL d. 24 Oct 1889 Gallatin, IL

I don't think the listing is correct. I believe he is actually the son of John 1785-1854 and Mary Polly Moore Proctor 1785-1875.

1st Wife Meria Jane Blades Proctor 17 Jan 1839 Hamilton, IL

2nd Wife Susan Marie Hays Proctor 29 Dec 1847 Hamilton, IL

The John Proctor b. 08 Mar 1813 Rockcastle KY d. 16 Jun 1896 d. 16 Jun 1896 Hancocl IL is the son of James and Mary B. proctor.

I was hoping your photo of the headstone would shed additional light, and I would also appreciate your authorization to use it on my personal non profit site once it is clearly identified.

Thank you for yur time and consideration.
