Bio Photo Hi,

I am a retired veteran and genealogist. I work on Fort Knox so I have opportunities to visit some cemeteries on post and in Hardin County, KY.

Whitson Rector Bishop
Hi James,
I'm even more confused! I wrote you an hour ago saying I wasn't sure about the "Rector" name. I have just found the WWI draft registry for "Whitson Rector Dillander". He is the son of Whistson R. Bishop's daughter, America Bishop Dillander. So, now I'm back to thinking Rector is correct. What is your opinion?
Sorry to keep bothering you about this.

Whitson R. Bishop
Hi James,
I'm throughly confused and embarrassed. I should have double checked before writing you the other day. I thought I had several things with his name Whitson Rector Bishop. Come to find out everything was Whitson R. or just W.R. Bishop. The only place I found Whitson Rector was two family trees on Family Search. Since you found Whitson Riley Bishop on a list of Ft. Knox graves, if a family member gave that info., it probably is correct. It would be great if we had a picture of the tombstone. I'm changing my family tree record to just Whitson R. for now. You can change his Find A Grave #84342807 back to Whitson Riley or Whitson R. Bishop. Whatever you want to do. I will take down my duplicate site.
Please accept my sincere apology for all the confusion.

H.F. Patterson Birth & Death Date
Thank you for all the great photos from the Shelton Cemetery at Fort Knox. I did want to make a correction: H.F. Patterson, according to the book "Fort Knox Cemeteries 1998", by Gary Kempf, was born Sept. 11, 1826 and died Sept. 6, 1884. He is listed in the "1880 Hardin County, Kentucky Census" with his 2nd wife, Isabella, and children.

Bishop Graves
I noticed you posted several Bishop grave sites and connected spouces and children. You have my G-G Grandfather listed as Whitson Riley Bishop (Find A Grave # 84342807). All of my records show his name as Whitson Rector Bishop. What is your source for the Riley?

Darrell Johnson
Grandview Baptist Church Cemetery

I'm Darrell Johnson, I'm caretaker of Grandview Baptist Church Cemetery at the end of ST John Road.

First let me Thank you for taking the Pictures of the Headstones and posting them on Find A

I do need to ask a favor of you. 2 of the Names you listed are wrong

You have a picture of James and Dorothy Rogers Headstone but you have their Names as James and Dorothy Price. There isn't a James and Dorothy Price in our cemetery.

I have taken a new picture of James and Dorothy Rogers Headstone and posted it along with their names so all I need for you to do is remove your posting of James and Dorothy Price

Thanks for all you do, I know it was just an honest mistake.

take care,

Darrell Johnson

RE: John Church Richards
Oops sorry about that. I just saw John Richards..some of these stones in this cemetery are weathered and hard to read. I will make a memorial for his wife if you would like to repost your grave request for John and I`ll see of i have his picture as well.

RE: Kimberly Jo Brown memorial ##58869444
James, Thank you so much for this. I admit to being very ignorant when it comes to this site, and all I can see for her is her parents. I can't see the grandfathers you mention . . .

RE: John F. Schreck
Hi, I have deleted his second memorial because I agreed with the note that he must be buried as you show, with both names on the marker. I sent you an edit to add a link for his first wife, Lucille Dillon, memorial # 23032140, to John F. Schreck's memorial.

That should make the record clear to all. Cheers, Dick Gates,

RE: Mallie Jane Elliott Sprinkle
Yes, sometimes a bride and a groom will indeed have the same surname (distant cousins or whatever), but in this case, I do not think Mallie was previously married. She is shown as "Miss" and it does not show that she is widowed as it does for James Sprinkle and also others on the same page. Plus Bertha's marriage record does not have a father's name. I am not sure if Virgil was Mallie's son or her nephew. I am sure that Bertha was very close to her grandmother. Mallie and Bertha (and maybe Virgil) undoubtedly were born in grandma's house and grew up there. When Mallie married, Bertha just continued living with grandma.
