RE: John Rone That's cool. There are a whole lot of unmarked graves. We just had a great success story in Granite Hill, though. Was contacted about a veteran listed with no marker. As soon as I looked at the map, I knew it was either buried, or just buried in the over-abundance of wildflowers. Remembered even that I had looked for his marker unsuccessfully. The group that contacted me is in Vermont! They are making sure that every "native son" has a marker, no matter where they are buried. We knew there had been an application for a marker, which was approved, but there was no record of a marker being placed. Of course, Granite Hill records are horrible - destroyed by fire twice, and flood once. Anyway, VA was willing to replace, but wanted the plot probed first. Mikie from Parks Dept went out and was probing... probing...probing...swung the probe further into the "brush" and clinked. Pulled the brush off, and there it was, still standing, if a bit lop-sided. Was so tickled I sent a donation to VT to keep up the good work. It's through the local historical society, and they have whittled the list down from hundreds to only 40 remaining. That's pretty damned impressive!
Rudy and mother, Clara Hussey Thank you for photographing and memorializing my family. Clara's husband, and Rudy's father, Frank Gilbert Hussey, was a second cousin of mine, born to my Indiana Husseys who trailblazed the Oregon Trail in the 1850's!
York family That would be Nice of you to transfer the York family to me. I am related to the York family. They are my cousins. I do know of a direct relative and if he is willing I will let him know about the transfer. I will add what I can to it from our family history book. Thank you for your kindness.

RE: Martha S Boyer #148288382 Thank you very much for taking photos of people you aren't related to! Those of us who cannot get to these cemeteries really appreciate the service you provide. And thanks for replying. :)
Martha S Boyer #148288382 By any chance, is Martha one of your relatives? I am trying to find out if she was married to my great-grandfather, Charles E Boyer (1857-1939). In 1930 he has a wife listed as Martha S Boyer living in Lawton, OK - 2nd marriage for both.
That Charles Boyer (memorial 10697234) is definitely my great-grandfather, but I have no record of a 2nd marriage for him to Martha...just some family rumors of a 2nd wife.
RE: Fairview cemetery Fleming County KY Hi Mark! Thank you so much for your help with this matter. You mention that you have them in your genealogy, are we related in some way. If we are I would appreciate some info, my great great grandfather had a couple of brothers that I don't know much about. Any information that you have on your side would be great. If you are on Ancestry.com maybe we could connect there as well.
Fairview cemetery Fleming County KY Hi Mark, While doing some cemetery research I came across that you have my grandparents Glyda Pearl Crawford Johnson and Thomas C. Johnson listed as being buried in Fairview Cemetery in Fleming County Kentucky when actually they are buried at the Flemingsburg Cemetery in Fleming County Kentucky. It may be possible that there are still two plots in their name since one of there children is buried there however they are not. Please let me know if you need any more information.
