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.

Hi, I decided to look at your photos to see if you had taken any of my Phillips Family that I did not know about. I found Berthey and Purlie at Salt River. Just send Link info. Thanks, Carole

Clemencia Spaulding Montgomery
Thank you sooo much for finding Clemencia. I have wanted a picture of her Memorial for a long time. I have been told a couple of times that the location of "Sec L Lot 1106" had been lost and/or that the Cemetery did not know where she was buried or where this secion was located. How did you find her??? Carole
