Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history exploration for me begins with Ottawa Co, Kansas, but of course led across the country. An inheritor of several generations of newspaper clippings, I started transcribing obits from microfilm beginning at the 1879 start of the paper and realized the value of reading them all in understanding my family's history in the region. A sort of 'community-based genealogy' habit grew and expanded, as did an interest in cemetery preservation and recording.

Living now in a rural Kentucky county, our local history goal is to locate the old family cemeteries up in the hills, photograph and record. Most are hidden and overgrown; some remarkably well looked after by landowners whether related or not. And several are out there yet to be found...

Am happy to transfer your relatives and happy to help in the hunt for them.

RE: John C. Hammond
That would be great thank you! His Civil War service has been a mystery!

John C. Hammond
Hi, I noticed that you created John C. Hammond's find a grave memorial.

I am his 4th great grandson (direct lineage). I was wondering if you have done any research on him? I am trying to figure out if he was in the Civil War. There were several John Hammond/Hammons/Hammonds that served in KY. I thought since you had posted his obituary and the photo of his marker, that maybe you could help me out. I appreciate you creating his memorial. If you do not want to manage it now or in the future, I will gladly assume that role. Thank you!

RE: James Christie
Thank you. I was actually there two years ago when I took my parents. I did not have the interest or knowledge that I have now. I guess my best chance is to try to find James Christie's name on an Indian Fork Listing. Would really like to find where James is buried and have it marked while my dad is still alive. Thank you-doug

Thanks for the excellent photos, and for letting me know that so many other members of the family were interred with them. I have sent several requests to link the children. I appreciate the photos and that you wrote about the others.
