RE: 123453747 - William Carney allen
William Carney Allen is buried in the William Allen Cem. Deathbecomesher has him listed in the Allen Cem. There are two different cemeteries with Allen as the last name. I personally walked and took the photos and names for the two different cemeteries. Will see if she is willing to combine the two.

RE: Iris DiamondPowers - 10217306
Glad I could help. I had not entered many things for Pine Hill but I had sent a photo and info on Chief Justice Fred Vinson because he is buried here. Greenlawn is a perpetual care cemetery started in 1953 by my dad and three others. He was the last survivor of the four and it is now mine to take care of.

Yes, my granmother, Iris, my parents, my great Aunt May (who was a sister to Granny and Annie) and two of my cousins (daughters of Sofia and Milt, granny's brother) are also buried at Greenlawn. Iris' husband, Guy Powers, is buied in WV next to his first wife. She and Guy had no children. Guy had had a son who was a pilot in WWII and was lost at sea.

I remember years ago that she found out about her half siblings. She had never known about them and I think she had the opportunity to meet them.

If I can help in any other way, my e-mail is

RE: Iris DiamondPowers - 10217306
Several years ago we moved the Pickrell Cemetery to a section of the Pine Hill Cemetery in Louisa, KY. The little cemetery was on a hill behind the house where my grandmother, Sue Pickrell Dodson lived. She had sold her property and moved to town several years before her death. The cemetery property was part of her brothers family. When the first generation heirs died, there was interest in that area because it was beside US 23. Those of us in the next generation decided to move the cemetery.

Annie Pickrell Diamond was born 1/16/1879 and died 10/25/1910. Iris (Idie was what she was called) was only 5 years old. My granny, Sue Dodson, took her and raised her as her own. She was always referred to as a sister to my mother and her 2 brothers.

I'm not sure how much info is in Find A Grave concerning Pine Hill. I have entered some.

The location of the Pickrell Cemetery is Section 14, Block 4. Annie is in Lot 6. Her mother & father are Jessie Goble Pickrell, 10/28/1849 - 1/30/1927 and Thomas B. PIckrell 7/28/1849 - 5/7/1919.

There were only 14 graves.

Hope this helps.

RE: Hannah Light Hysinger-28713723
Shirley, the lady that maintained this memorial before I did added that information and I am assuming she got it from the genealogy library downtown here. That information is not always correct. So what I did was changed the note to just say William E. Hysinger. You can go a head and make a memorial for him and either add a photo of the death certificate stating he is buried there or just make a note to that effect with reference to the death certificate. Then you can link him to Hannah. Does that work for you?

The Peter Livesays...
Just looking preliminarily at what is on Ancestry, I believe that the older Peter Livesay is probably buried in the Baker Cemetery. The Peter born in 1819 is probably the one in the Testerman-Livesay Cemetery, as his wife Elizabeth apparently got remarried to a Fletcher. And the younger peter served in the Civil War and lived on.

RE: Peter Livesay again
Ok, in the 1850 Census there are three Peter Livesay's (Spelled Levisy) in Hancock County. One born in 1764, one in 1819 and one in 1834... Do you access to

RE: 13357605.Peter Livesay
I thought maybe so too, but someone has him here:

I have not been to that cemetery (Baker) yet to see if he is actually there, and won't be back in the area for a while (I live in Florida). Thanks! I hope we figure it out! :)

Hello Shirley,

RE: Your email to me...
107066565-Sarah ann Livesay Cornett
I noticed you said she was 1 of 4 children. I have 5 listed for Enoch & Eliz - Sarah, Victoria, Almeda, Rufus ., and Fielden B. Have I added 1 child to the wrong parents? I used the 1860, 1870 1nd 1880 Census, but I could still be wrong. thank you for all the work you have done on this site.

You are 100% correct...I left out one sister. Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to correct me. I want my memorials to be as accurate as is humanely possible so I appreciate any help I get along the way to achieving that goal.
With regards,
