Henderson's In Carter Co, KY
John, thank you for your edit suggestion concerning some of the Henderson's in the cemetery listed simply as Henderson Cemetery, minus any cemetery #. Although I see that you reference a genealogy group that documented 5 Henderson cemeteries back in 2005 none of those cemeteries were added to Find A Grave prior to when several people contributed names to as the first and lone Henderson cemetery contributed to Find A Grave for carter Co. And the #'s are not an official name for the multiple little family named cemeteries.

The Henderson cemetery where I have placed James and Nancy is surely the primary ancestral cemetery of the entire Henderson family in Carter Co, as they are the patriarchs of the Carter Co Hendersons. If everyone already listed on Find A Grave in Henderson cemetery is actually in what you call #4 as named by a genealogy group it would be far easier to request a name change of the cemetery via Find A Grave as opposed to requesting every listed burial be changed over to a newly created cemetery you just added to Find A Grave.

If you look at the map link for the Henderson cemetery it is clearly the same cemetery you give directions for as Henderson #4 using a GPS link. I must decline moving the Henderson family I have contributed several years ago over to your newly added cemetery and suggest you get rid of your cemetery #4 and move any memorials you recently create over to the original Henderson cemetery that was already on Find A Grave with no #.

I can see you are trying to document a lot of Carter Co burials and truly appreciate that. I see that you just added Mary May Henderson- Lawson to the "original' Henderson Cemetery. Is this your direct line of family? Because the picture you added for Mary is a copy of a personal family photo of Mary who is my husband's G-grandmother and the boy in the photo is his grandfather? may I ask where you got that copy? I am not meaning to be difficult but I see you have an interest in the Henderson family. I too have researched them for nearly two decades.

Greenville Virgin Goble
Hi John,
I am trying to also locate this picture you posted of Greenville Virgin Goble. I would love to be able to print out a copy of these for my father-in-law.
Thank you for your time,

RE: Uriah David
Hi John,

Thanks, I'll take another look at that. Just so you know, I've done TONS of work on the Henderson family. Let me know if you run into any questions. Takes a while to sort out all of the families.

Uriah David "Dave" Henderson

Thank you for contacting me about Dave. He is my GGreat Grandfather. Are you related?

I do see that he married either Emily Hanshoe or Evaline Henderson 14 May 1876 in either Carter or Grayson County. I have not been able to find conclusive proof which of these marriages actually occurred, if either. If you have any further information, I would welcome it!

He did have two kids by Evaline, Ed and Henry.

The record you found about the marriage to Mary Perry Stone is in the Bio. That was his marriage to Mary E. Eulett, daughter of William Eulett and Eleanor Perry, previously married to Charles H. Stone.

Do you have a source for the information about his death being in 1900 in Carter County, Kentucky? I would be thrilled to add it, but have received erroneous information in the past, so am trying to be careful.

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave!

Thank you so very much for the photos of my Kentucky ancestors David and Rachel Norris. I probably will never be able to visit this cemetery, and so your photos are very important to me. Thank you so much for your time and efforts. It's a great thing you do for other people.

RE: DeHart
I don't know if know Pete Greenhill Jr. He lives at the corner of Maude Lane and Ben's Run he can tell you exactly where the cemetery is located.

Thank you

William Sellers, Isle of Wright
JOHn, your work on the Sellers family is so extensive. Thank You! But I have a qyestion...William Sellers signs with an X, then has a grandson who becomes Rev. GGenerally speaking, that's an educated, literate profession for his day. Do you have any indication how that happened, in colonial times? Thanks. Tamara

Lucy Casey
there's something incorrect here.

Lucy is buried with her sister and nephew Elizabeth Williams and James F Williams respectively. Ida, her niece, owns the lot but is not buried here.

LN 72 204H 1 Elizabeth Williams 79072428
LN 72 204H 2 Lucinda “Lucy” Casey 78905991
LN 72 204H 3 James F Williams 79072688

Above is the detail about this plot.

Elizabeth and Lucinda are sisters. James is Elizabeth's son.

hope this helps
