Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was introduced to Find a Grave about 2000 by a cousin. Together we tried to add as many members of our family as we possibly could. It wasn't long before my cousin became the subject of his own memorial page. Eventually, I realized that there was more I could do than just search for my own family. So, I began trying to add photos whenever I could. Recently I became involved in a cemetery project in my area. A friend and I began searching through the hills, bushes and briers for long abandoned cemeteries, adding what we find to Find a Grave.
Find a Grave is a great site for people who are researching their family. We have made it our goal to do whatever we can to make it the very best it can be.

George Paul Farris
Mefford Cemetery at Biddle

Dear Donna:

At first I would like to thank-you for the work you do in recording and preservation. It will reach over time and provide important data to those yet unborn.

I am in the process of preparing a proposal to preserve Mefford headstones. Would you be interested in assisting in that regard? At a minimum would you grant use of your photo of the Mefford Cemetery near Biddle in Scott County, KY? It has an unforgettable impact!

With much anticipation I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours truly,
George Paul Farris
A Mefford Kinsman

RE: Mary C. Munson Hampton
Her son James Hampton's Death Certificate says the same thing. Burial in Hampton Cemetery. I think this cemetery was on the family farm in Hessler Pct. Owen Co., KY.

No, still haven't got the Death Certificate from you. Did you send it to dwebb8@cox.net?

If a problem I can go onto Ancestry.com and try
and find it.

I am thinking she was buried on their Farm Land
and they called it Hampton Cemetery?
What do you think?

Would you mind putting that Death Certificate
on her Memorial Site?
I would appreciate it. I can make a disclaimer
don't know Hampton Cemetery.

No, I would have to order the death certificate and take my chance that it might mention place of burial. Obituary is the other way to go and contact
Owen County Genealogical and Historical Society.

I have no problem with removing cemetery where I think she is buried. I have edited it and put unknown cemetery.
Maybe, in future you might come across her in a
Glass Cemetery or other in Kentucky. I appreciate
all your past help.

HI Donna- I am so sorry I've been so elusive! I had knee surgery last year and have not been able to get out to walk much, so have not been on here. I'm not sure how to transfer that listing, but am thrilled to find you. It warms my heart that someone "owns" this person. So many of them go into the great abyss!
I'll research how to do it and transfer it to you.
Thank you so much!
Holly
