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.

|Mark Aschenbrenner||RE: Post & Sommerville West Virginia|
Maybe you can help? Have you ever seen a reading of the New Bethel cemetery in Harrison Co.,WVA .
There appaers to be some size to it on maps, but this site only shows four entries! Doesn't make sense to me! I think I've got some other ties there, but no list to canvas.
can you help? List or on line site with the people lsited.

I've linked the parents for Iza Taylor and Mary Reger, who are buried in Friendship Cemetery.
I also added Iza's maiden name.

This information came from the Anderson Co. News reprint of his obituary, 30 years ago, Feb. 16, 1984 (reprint 12 Feb 2014 section A12).
Clarence Wilbur Webb, 71, retired farmer and former manager of the old Lyric Theater in Lawrenceburg for 25 yrs., died at his home. Survivors include his wife, Estelle Thomas Webb, a daughter, Mrs. Joe R. Gash and granddaughter Kathy Gash.
Thought you might want to post it.

Yes I am very ready for spring to come our way :)
Would you happen to know if this is the cemetery across the road from the truck stop in Jane Lew?

I did the west family in memory of Leo Clive West--Samuel was his uncle--who devoted lots of time to locating cemeteries and genealogy. I was neighbors with his brother Damon and officiated at both their funerals.
It's always good to get the last piece of the puzzle in.
