Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the northern section of Caldwell Co., Ky. although I was born in Chicago, Ill., been here 32 yrs. I enjoy going to the many cemeteries in this area and taking pictures of these graves and having them posted to the Caldwell Co. website. Especially the ones related to us in some degree, now I find myself just taking pictures for the fun of it and posting the info on this find a grave site. I try to research these folks and get as much info as I can find. I'm sure I make mistakes, doesn't everyone? So I have no objections to being corrected. I have photographs of every posting relating to my family, and some that aren't family.
I am a mother of 5, 11 grandchildren and 7
gr. grandchildren. Am retired, and recently widowed, so I have lots of time to walk these cemeteries. I've been doing genealogy for over 35 yrs, still not professional, I just like doing it.
And just to add this little item, I don't mind transferring these memorials to family members, but I will have to think pretty hard about transferring memorials that relate to my family, even distantly. So don't feel offended if I refuse to do so.
P.S. it seems that I've not been as observant as I should be and I have posted memorials that sometimes turn out to be duplicates, if you find a duplicate, and it was posted AFTER
the original, please feel free to let me know and I will correct that over sight.
P.S. I guess I need to ad a postscript, I don't mind transferring some of these memorials, but it would be easier for me if you would give the name and where buried of the person you want transferred and your memorial number, I can look them up, but to be fair, it takes time to do so.

Eddie Phelps
I have been researching the Phelps/LeRoy family from Caldwell Co., Ky for the past year. I found my GG grandfather, Thomas Phelps, and wife, Elizabeth Lane Phelps. My grandfather, W. Scott Phelps had an older brother, James "Eddie" who died at the age of 11 or 12. Thanks to you, and Ancestry. Co. I found his grave in Meeks Cementry.

Clift Cemetery Transfers
Thank you so much, Gail! I really appreciate your working with me on this. I've photographed most of the gravestones and will update the memorials as I work on the individual family members. A lot of the older stones need cleaning and repair, which I'm hoping to do by next spring/summer. I will photograph those when they are done and post them too.

Thank you for your work in documenting our family cemetery. So much history can be lost if we don't have volunteers like you who help preserve it.

Kind regards

Would it be possible for me to control his memorial as someone has erroneous info re his spouse. I have contacted the person who has this on another memoria l to prove her documentation or remove it but she has not. I wrote a not on the page. He had other spouses but not Josephine Boone.

RE: Alfred Guess
I did have a copy of Gregory Watson's Cemetery Book, but I donated it along with many other books to the Glenn Martin Genealogy Library in Princeton.

It wouldn't be the first time that someone has made a mistake in a birth and/or death date. I just thought that you would want to know that Alfred Guess is not on the 1870 or the 1880 census and his wife Jane Elretta (Smith) Guess is on both the 1870 and the 1880 Caldwell County, Kentucky Census records and it states that she is a "Widow" on the 1880 census, it does not have a place for them to say one way or another if she was a widow on the 1870 census.

Alfred Guess was first married to Mary L. Johnson, they were married on Jan. 10, 1833 in Caldwell County, Kentucky. Alfred and Mary L. Guess had a son, Grandison J. Guess, Mary L. Johnson Guess died about 1838 and he married Jane Elretta Smith on Nov. 12, 1839 in Caldwell County, Kentucky.

Happy Hunting.

I have a question. From my research on Clem Blackburn I have his parents as Thomas Washington Blackburn and Mary Frances Stevenson. The info you have on parents is different. Can you tell me where you found the info you have. Thanks!

Thank You in creating The Lanham Memorial's in KY. My Lanham family from my father, has taken me on many adventures of turns and twists. While, my grandfather, William Henry Lanham, was born in Union County, Illinois, moved at age 18 to Crittenden County, KY having family there With his first wife, Ethel M Thurman( died at age 34 Due to complications from a pregnancy) leaving children. William married Ethel's younger sister, my grandmother, Frances C Thurman having three children. Sadly, Wm died young from working the coal mines, 1927 death. Thank You in helping guide me to locate my Lanham family burials by their Memorial's... Respectfully, Marvin
