Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello!
Nice to meet everyone! My main interest and "hobby" is all things Lon Chaney Sr! Silent movies are still "tops" with me.
My music interests range from Alice Cooper to Robert Johnson, Jerry Reed, Jimmie Rodgers and lots of stuff in between.
I have ancestors in Tennessee [Atnip, Kell and Judkins families] and in Kentucky [Burger, Rousey (Rowzey] and Strevels families].
My GGreatgrandfathers on both sides fought in the Civil War. One for the Union and one for the Confederacy.
However, down deep, I'm still a "Johnny Reb!"
I love going to cemeteries and learning about peoples lives and deaths.
If I can help anyone out with something, please let me know!

I do make mistakes, so if you see something that needs correcting, please feel free to contact me by using the edit tab at the top of the memorial page, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Please submit any additions or corrections to me under "suggest a correction" on the memorial site. Will be happy to add any information and relationship links for you. Please read the Transfer Requirements
before requesting a transfer. Please send all transfer request through "suggest a correction tab".

Please do not add any pictures of newspaper obituaries to my memorials. OR death certificates...It's just plain tacky...

I would also like to add that I don't do anything to alter the stone for better visability. I use my eyes and my fingers to read some of the older ones. I DO NOT CHALK STONES!!! Those that do, have broken the rules of F.A.G. And not to mention that something of this nature is legally defined as vandalism. Don't let me catch you...

Allen Wright
I there. I have looked at Allen Wright my great great grandfather and the death date looks to me like 1833 not 1855. Is that a possibility?

Thank you,

Graham cemetery In Ky
I just read one of your messages from 2010 for Graham cemetery. I would like very much to know if you still have any of the photos you took of the headstones in that cemetery. My ancestors are buried there. They traveled to Collin co Texas in the mid 1800's thru 1882. I just thought I would ask. Would be wonderful to see actual photos. Sincerely, Tracy BALE Flowers.

Hi Tammy, What do you think of using shaving foam to help read stones. It washes off readily and does no damage. Warm regards, Liz

Joel Maupin #13613294
Hello, I have been forwarded an interesting book that you can read on the internet about the Maupin descendants:

On pages 96-97 there is information on Joel Maupin and some of the children you have listed. His daughter, Sarah Frances Maupin Miskell, was my great-grandmother. Her mother, Sarah Frances Chandler Maupin, was Joel's first wife. You can connect Sarah as a child:

Sarah Frances Maupin (4th child of Joel and Sarah Frances Chandler) #86634665.

She married Lafayette Miskell and my grandfather, Noel Emmett Miskell, was their son.

Are you related? Thank you.

Masonic Hall Cemetery Larue Co KY

My husband and I are planning to visit Larue Co KY (from CA) in early July and want to find this cemetery. I'm told by contributor Anita Yoder Dusseau that it's hard to find and that you also asked her for directions. I know it's on a bluff near the Rolling Fork River, about 3 mis east of Hwy 210. Any more hints on how to get there? My husband's gg-gpa and perhaps others are buried there. Thanks so much!

I didn't know if you knew about this or not:

Here on the profile page and it will say:

Profile - Messages Edits - Contributor Tools - Edit My Profile

That word EDITS has just been added and may have a number by it --click on it and it will bring down what you need to edit or what you have sent to others to edit.
I had one on this morning to edit and I didn't get that request in my e-mail so it looks like you will need to check this edit thing everyday.

C T "Tom" Jones tomstone

You have the wrong picture for his tombstone for C T "Tom" Jones. This will be at the Magnolia Presbyterian Church located in LaRue Co Ky.
