|Linda Lenhard||Aley Hubbard Miller|
I have been trying to help people understand that Aley Miller and her daughter and son, Josephine and Elihu, are not buried at Kelly's Chapel Cemetery. I don't even believe the area they are buried in is in Washington Co., but it is in Smyth County. I may be wrong about that because I haven't been there in a long time, but we can see from the photos you uploaded to her memorial that it is not in a chapel's cemetery.
Now, please correct me if I'm wrong about this. I have been to the grave several times. It is in a corn field. I believe the land once was owned by Josephine and her husband and they moved there after George Washington Miller was killed.
I think if someone wanted to find the grave sites, they will be sadly disappointed if they go to Kelly's Chapel Cemetery and can't find them. Please help me to think this through. I am on the right path, aren't I?
Thanks for listening to me. I just want it to be correct.

|Chet Walker||RE: Ashe Co Cemeteries|
Very helpful. Thank you. After a visit to Sheets Cemetery to complete the photographing, we will figure out if Sheets, Andrew should be merged into Sheets Cemetery to clean things up. I may come back to you later to ask for directions to the other 2 Sheets cemeteries you mentioned if that is OK. Regards
|Chet Walker||Ashe Co Cemeteries|
Ricky- Thank you so much for the directions. I feel certain I can find it given how precise they are. I hope to get there before the weather turns too bad.
A couple of other questions if you do not mind.
1) Sheets Cemetery- It appears that it may be completely photographed but I am not sure? That is, are the unphotographed memorials there either without engraved stones or belong elsewhere?
2) Findagrave has another Sheets Cemetery- Sheets,Andrew Family Cemetery. The directions sound like it is a duplicate of Sheets Cemetery but the memorials placed in that cemetery are not duplicates. Can you shed any light on this?
|Chet Walker||RE: Calaway Pennington Cemetery- Ashe Co., NC|
Thank you for responding.
I live just west of Boone so any route from Boone would be fine.
Thank you very much.

I am interested in visiting this cemetery and noticed that you had posted some photos a few years ago. Would you be willing to provide me with some directions (as precise as possible!)?
|Marion Librarian||RE: Sheets Cemetery|
Thanks so much. I hope to make it this year. Lois

My cousin and I just visited the Sheets Cemetery located on the Blue Ridge Parkway. She was able to make it up the hill to the cemetery and took pictures of quite a few of the headstones. She also took a picture of the sign about the cemetery and it mentioned a yearly decoration. Could you tell me when this decoration is held, or who I might contact to find out about the date? Thank you for any help you might offer. Lois Tilson, descendant of Martin and Andrew Sheets.

Man, was this hard to find (descendant of Martin/Larkin Sheets here). After several hours of looking, I finally found the entrance and hiked up to the cemetery. Beautiful place, many thanks to those that maintain it.
For those having trouble finding it, here's the location on Google Maps
Thanks again to those who are maintaining our family's history!
|m hendriksen||RE: Kathleen Chalet|
Glad to help. She was hidden behind that large hydrangea . Had to try and hold the branches back when doing photo so that's why I did the close up of just her name and one with the last name as best I could. There are other Chalet family there too and will try to get them all up in the next couple of days. Martha
