Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started researching the family roots about 1990. researching the names ROBERTSON, WAGGONER, DECKARD, SEXTON, HAMMOND, ALEXANDER, BROWN, SWANGO, GIBSON, COWLES, TAYLOR, VANCE, AND GRAMLIN. Have just recently started taking digital cemetery pictures of stones to add to family tree collections.

I decided to start contributing these pictures on line to share with other's in search of these Ancestors.

These bios and pictures may not be published for sale or sumitted to websites that charge a subscription.

Please send any corrections or pictures via "EDIT" button and I will correct or add to these collections and give credit to the person submitting. If you are a family member of one of my postings and would like ownership to add bios or pictures feel free to do so.

These entries are dedicated to our two sons, grandchildren and future generations in search of their roots.

Have been working 5 years on photographing & posting WALNUT RIDGE CEMETERY, JEFFERSONVILLE, IN to FAG.

DO NOT USE BLEACH TO CLEAN WHITE MILITARY STONES AS IT WILL TURN THEM YELLOW AND THE DAMAGE CANNOT BE UNDONE.

Hi Janet,
Thank you for taking the photo of John's burial plot. What does NRgp stand for? I am really sad that he doesn't have a stone. I only recently found the memorials of John & Grace. She was my gr gr aunt. Bill Durham gave me info on marriage & deaths. I don't know if they had children or if John had bros & sisters. I couldn't find a memorial for his parents in Cumberland Co, KY. I do know a geneology expert who lives in Cumberland Co. I'll see if she can help. I don't know what I'd do without my Find A Grave family.

God Bless, Nancy

RE: Alice Broaddus
Emmett was a civilian. As far as family was told after the war he was never actually interned in Canp Stanley but registered there and was under house arrest. That would not have been unusual. Emmett was a missionary. He had heart issues and getting medication was a problem after the Japanese takeover of Hong Kong. The family was told that the day he died he had finished a Church service and told one of the other members he was not feeling well and was going home. The same member went to check on him later and found him dead. The Chinese Christians buried him in a Chinese cemetery. His stone and burial record in Chinese. English was added to his stone after the war ended.
Just before the war started, my grandmother, Alice, had taken the 7 children to Manila at Emmett's urging, thinking they would be safe until he made arrangements to meet them. The Japanese attacked all across the Pacific and they never saw him again. Alice and the 7 kids, including my mother, were interned in Manila. First under house arrest for a couple months, then in Santo Tomas internment camp for a total of 37 months as POWs. My mother turned 12 on the troop ship coming home after they were liberated.

RE: Alice Broaddus
Janet,
Emmett's findagrave number is 161977482.
Actually, the portrait you added is a digital copy of the actual portrait at my parents home. I did add a photo of his grave and stone.
I am currently working on bios for generations of both sides of my family's memorial pages.
I appreciate your assistance and the transfer.

You have Richard Jackson attached to Harry Theodore Lentz "Teddy". I do not know who that person is. Harry Lentz is my cousin. I don't think Richard is attached in the right place.

RE: Alice Broaddus
Emmett was indeed my grandfather. His first wife is buried in Kowloon and he in Hong Kong. My parents were able to visit his grave some years ago and had his stone replaced.
I am an ancestry member. I appreciate your offer to assist.
Thank you so much for transferring her memorial to me. I'll work on a page for Emmett.
