Bio and Links
I am a late comer to the "Find a grave", and several people have been very generous in sharing their sites. I have been researching both sides of my family and both sides of my husband's family for many years, along with collateral lines. I have had the good fortune to be the recipient of old pictures, newspaper articles, and old obituaries. Very few of the obituaries were marked with the name of the newspaper they were printed in, but much of the information they contained was invaluable. Even though I have printed a number of family books the "Find a grave", site seemed a great place to insure that our ancestor's memory would be preserved.

RE: Pettit
Many thanks. I'm thinking this child died before the 1870 census rather than in 1885, but I can find no record of death in KY or IN for her. If you have anything at all, it will be more than I have been able to find!! Thanks again.

Re: Mary Alice Pettit
Confused about your Find A Grave entry # 113146168 for her. It shows:

Birth: 1864
Scott County
Kentucky, USA
Death: 1885
Indiana, USA

Father: Charles G. Pettit
Mother: Elizabeth Wright

Mary Alice Pettit was born in Kentucky and moved to Indiana about the same time her father and step-mother moved in 1913. She never married. She is buried in the older section of the cemetery, with no stone.
She can't have died in 1885 and moved to Indiana in 1913. this child isn't listed in the household in Scott Co., Kentucky in either the 1870 or 1880 census. Is there any way you could check your references and advise or update this Find A Grave entry? Thanks for your time.

RE: Picture of Mary Moss's grave marker
Well, it has been a year since your request but I finally added the photo and also that of her husband's marker who is buried next to her. Apologies for overlooking your request. Linda

RE: Atkins

Edward is my ancestor too! My mother is an Atkins. I wish we could find old Edward's gravestone. An Atkins cousin of mine, the one who found Thomas and Nancy's gravestones, thinks that he is buried in the same plot or near Thomas and Nancy. I will be in Lexington this summer, to visit relatives. I am planning to go to the Stamping Ground Baptist Church cemetery to visit their graves. How are you descended from Edward? I am descended through Thomas and Nancy's son, Dudley A Atkins. Are you descended from one of Thomas and Nancy's daughters?

Curious about your obituary collection
Hi. I have been doing research on my family and I keep coming to your entries on Find A Grave. I notice that you manage quite a few memorials for the descendants of Thomas and Nancy (Shackelford) Atkins, including the daughters and their descendants (Dalzells, Goddards, Gardners, etc). They are great! I really appreciate all of the details. Who did you get your obituaries from? Are you an Atkins descendant? Did a relative of yours save the obituaries? I have a great grandmother was also saved lots of things - postcards, letters, newspaper clippings, etc. These sorts of collections are treasure troves. Thanks for the great Find A Grave details!
