I recently moved back to Paducah after being in Nashville for 30 years. I was very involved in cemeteries in Nashville (cleaning, researching, documenting, taking photos). I would like to do the same here. Please contact me if you would like photos from Nashville cemeteries, as well as Paducah ones, as I go to Nashville quite often.|

Would you please transfer the memorial of my Aunt to me. I created one after her funeral not realizing you posted her obituary. I would like to fix and manage it.

Hi Susan! I'm Laura Wilkerson and my grandfather was a Caughlin from Carlisle County, KY. My great-great aunt, Ora Caughlin, was buried in the Campbell Cemetery in Arlington, KY. I was there this past December and tried to find it. I even went into a gas station and asked if they knew where this cemetery was and they were two very young kids who didn't know. The young man said he's heard of the cemetery but didn't know where it could be. Could you give me directions to this cemetery? Thanks, Laura Wilkerson

I cannot thank you enough for the kindness you have shown by transferring my mother-in-law's memorial to me. I can fill in all the missing information now. I loved this woman to no end and it is my honor to maintain her memorial! Bless you Susan!
Susan there is apending edit for links to her parents. When I send edits especially for parents, I like to send some proof and that is the reason I was telling you who they were. I have sent edits to have parents linked and maiden name for her mother.
Thank you for adding the information. The pending edit should show on the edit tab on Addie's memorial page.

I IMAGINE YOU HAVE SEEN THIS LETTER, BUT THOUGHT I WOULD SEND IT ANYWAY.EXCUSE THE CAPS.
This letter was addressed to Pleasant Scott of McCracken Co. KY, son of Joseph and Esther Steele Scott from Pleasant's cousin and his mother's nephew Abner Alexander Steele.
Lewisburg, Marshall County
September 9, 1865
I have frequently written to Kentucky-- but never got a line in reply- I suppose my letters failed to reach their destination. My health and that of our relations generally are good - and I have never known more peaceable times here than we are having since the close of the war- Say to Aunt Esther [Steele Scott] that Aunt Rachel [Steele Dillehay] and Aunt Jane [Steele Scott] are both well- and to Uncle Jo [Joseph Scott] that James Scott [Joseph's brother] died August 1861- his youngest son, Martin V.B. Scott [son of James Scott and Jane Steele] died at Jackson, Mississippi in the Confederate Army, in November 1862 and Newton Scott of Louisville County, Ala. was murdered at his home by a straggling gang of guerrillas in January 1865- And of Aunt Rachel's [Rachel Steele Dillehay] son, Levi J. [Dillehay]- died in Camp Morton prison in February 1862- John T. [Dillehay] was killed at the second fight at Fort Donelson in February 1863- James [Scott] died in Insane Asylum at Nashville in August 1861- and William [Scott], their younger son is living with her and Mrs. Louisa Gibson [Louisa Dillehay Gibson] and family. Aunt Jane [Steele Scott] is living with Sam C. Scott [son of James and Jane Steele Scott] near Columbia, Tennessee- her daughters Lucinda Barnes [Lucinda Scott Barnes] and Polly Carter [Polly Scott Carter] live in the vicinity of Cedar Springs in this county- and the two other daughters Elizabeth [Scott] and Lucretia [Scott] are unmarried- I saw John and James Steele and Royal in Nashville about 5 weeks ago-
Having resigned my office connected with the U.S. Internal Revenue last spring, I have since that time been practicing law- except when attending the Legislature-- which meets again in October. The profession of law promises to pay, and pay handsomely. Edmund Cooper, Esq., the member of Congress from this district is my law partner. We would do a very heavy business were it not that he has to be absent at Washington and I at Nashville, this coming fall and winter.
My politics have undergone no change- I am a Conservative Anti-Slavery man- not a Copperhead- nor a wild Radical- and think that the Representatives from the Southern States should be admitted- and that the States, and not Congress, have the control- each for itself, of the suffrage question-- I am glad that Slavery is at an end-- though what is to become of the Negro, I am not yet able to say--Time alone can solve the difficult question of Races--each free and living in the same country.
Our crops this year are short- owing to the long drought- Money is scarce- and a great deal of suing is going on- I would like for you to address me at Nashville- House of Representatives- and give me the informaiton in regard to your wife and children and my relatives and friends, if I have any in that Democratic Country-
What has become of Mr. Eby and family- Reeves [James R. and Hannah J. Scott Reeves] and Frank Harris [Frank and Martha A. Scott Harris] and families and if Loui [Louisa Scott Fondaw] is married yet-- Is Mr. Black's family well-- How I would like to see them all again-- and as that is not possible now- they can write to me-
I intend for me and my wife to come to Kentucky sometime next year and see you all-- If I were to tell you I was married, I suspect you would not believe it- I know how incredulous you are on that subject, and will leave you in doubt till you get other satisfactory proof-
This morning, I was trying to recollect the names of your children- Mr. Black's- and others- and failed. Such exciting times since I saw them- that memory fastens on other scenes and thoughts- with a deeper impression- Mr. La Rue is dead-- James D. Euing is in bad health.
Hoping this may reach you, my dear "Pleas"- and that you will quit thinking about tobacco and greenbacks long enough to write me a letter acknowledging this one,
I remain as ever,
Abner A. Steele
