|Bio and Links|
Native of Greenup Co. Kentucky but a resident of Mississippi. Became interested in graveyards as a evaluator for a professional development program concerning teaching American History. Grave yards can be used as primary sources to engage high school students in discovering their communities history. Also I have a personal interest in preserving the graveyards (Mt. Zion and Thomson in Greenup Co.) where many of my family members are buried. I have helpers in this grave search process in Mississippi, Linda, and in Kentucky my sister Natalie , who record the information on the marker while I take pictures|

I do connect to this Foster family through the Flack family in Scioto County, Ohio.

|Wes Hart||RE: Foster/ Mt.Zion|
"are the Foster family members buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery, Greenup Co., KY ancestors of yours?"
That is a very good question that I can not answer at the moment. I have been helping another person that is a descendant of Seth Foster of Gallia/Jackson County, Ohio. His father was said to be John Foster from (maybe West) Virginia that served in the War of 1812 and supposedly died about 1828 in Gallia County.
If these Fosters are related, they would be on my mom's side. Now the question I have to ask a cousin on my dad's side from Missouri, is why she left flowers for Nimrod Foster, # 8134704 the father of John B Foster in Greenup. BTW this john also served in the War of 1812.
She might be able to tell me if they are somehow related. Otherwise, I am not aware of any direct Foster ancestors.
If I find out, I will let you know.
No offence intended but why do you ask?
Thanks for contacting me

|ArchaeChick||Danville, KY Eifords|
My grandmother's maiden name was Eiford. Her father, Charles Earl Eiford, was born in Greenup County. I'm 99% positive that his father used the spelling Eifort*. I believe that Charles E. was a descendant of Sebastian Eifort (Memorial# 87131513) through his son John (Memorial# 95877883) and John's son Lewis Sebastian. However, the only information we've been left with is that Charles' father was "Sebastian" and mother was "Leona Bell Keaton" (who I can't seem to find anywhere). I also know that Charles E. Eifort of Danville, KY acted as the informant on the death certificate of Lewis Sebastian Eifort, but of course that's not concrete proof of a father-son relationship. Do you by any chance have any information about this branch of the Eifort/Eiford family tree? Thank you!
Your welcome. I found another Eifort at Woodland and took their picture too.

Would it be possible to link A.V. Montgomery (Memorial # 118144052) and his wife, Ellen Montgomery (Memorial # 36090157) to their son who died in the Civil War in Virginia? His memorial # is: 20300619. It would be nice to have him linked in death to his parents and siblings! His dying wishes were to be buried near them. Thanks!
I will be glad to transfer ownership if you want it. Just give me your number.
