Burkett B Rager, Cox Cemetery
Hi Dave,

I have recently started researching my family genealogy and have found the information you have listed here on Burkett B Rager. My mother is a Rager and her grandfather's name was Burkett. I was wondering where you got the information you have here, because I'm thinking there may be somewhat of a mix-up. The Burkett that is buried in Cox Cemetery had a headstone provided for Union Civil War Vets between 1879 and 1903. The Burkett that was married to Nanny Duke died in 1930 in Drakesboro Kentucky. I have been unable to find his grave, but I believe one in Cox Cemetery is a different Burkett Rager. I know there have been several Burketts in that family line over the years and I'm still having a hard time reconciling. Any insights you have would be helpful. Thanks.

Hi Dave,
I was hoping you had some more information on the Gortney's. JB Gortney was born Ollie Neal. He was my great grandfather. He left his wife and 7 kids and changed his name, got remarried and had 6 (I think) more kids. Just wondering if you were related or had more info.
Thanks. Dana

RE: Joel Sullivan Cemetery
Annie P Wright
Annie P. Wright and her husband Oscar are now in Mount Juliet Cemetery, Wilson CO. They are listed in the Annotated Records of the cemetery. May have been moved there from Joel Sullivan. I know her parents were moved there from the Pugh Cemetery because of the Dam. Also she has a sister buried there. I don't know if there is a headstone or not. I will request one for her and Oscar and see what happens. She was my grandmother's niece.

Dave, Did not see where you had received this message. Thought that I would pass it along to you. Not exactly sure how I got it.
