Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history exploration for me begins with Ottawa Co, Kansas, but of course led across the country. An inheritor of several generations of newspaper clippings, I started transcribing obits from microfilm beginning at the 1879 start of the paper and realized the value of reading them all in understanding my family's history in the region. A sort of 'community-based genealogy' habit grew and expanded, as did an interest in cemetery preservation and recording.

Living now in a rural Kentucky county, our local history goal is to locate the old family cemeteries up in the hills, photograph and record. Most are hidden and overgrown; some remarkably well looked after by landowners whether related or not. And several are out there yet to be found...

Am happy to transfer your relatives and happy to help in the hunt for them.

RE: Photo enhancement
Kate,
Thanks so much for enhancing the photo. I was able to determine this is my Great Grandpa's first wife. Thanks again.

Sorry, I got ahead of myself & deleted that memorial before you had a chance to view it.

Photo enhancement
Kate,
I have seen some of your photos you have enhanced. It is very impressive as in the cemetery I could not read the headstone at all and it was as clear as day on your photo. I was wondering if you could assist me in enhancing the photo of #131777876, D. Davis in Rockford cemetery in Lost Creek, WV. I believe this may be one of my lost grandmothers. If you need me to send the photo to your email address just let me know. Thanks!

RE: Susan Smith Nelson
Caveat: Though Independence was settled by 1826, it was not incorporated until 29 Mar 1827. For sticklers, (nit-pickers?), like myself, that means place of birth is not exact. The memorial I created is #101882757.

Mem. Susan Smith Nelson
Hi Kate,
I created a memorial for Susan, 2d w/o James Benjamin Sage, based on info I had. James was b/o my maternal ancestor, Anna E. SAGE Tharp. The 1860 census, for what it's worth, says James wife, S, was b. TN. Other info, I'd have to look it up, says she was b. 7 Feb 1826, Independence, Jackson, MO.
James & Susan were in Sugar Creek Twp, Lykens (now Miami, KS Terr., 3 Sep 1860.

Please connect Clarence to his mother, Sarah Dovey Cain Warner, Find-a-Grave Memorial #110243504. I would be happy to take over management of this memorial. Clarence was my great-uncle.

RE: Peter Swisher x2
Thanks for your reply and yes, you should keep them since you are a direct descendant. My line is Peter>Peter>Isaac>James>Charles>Bush Swisher. Do you know where Isaac and Jane Gaston Swisher are buried? Do you know if your John Gaston and my Jane Gaston were related?

Kate: Since your memorial was created last is it possible for you to remove it. Rich insists that he can't do anything about merging the files because he had the first one.

If you would remove yours I will work at getting all the kids, 2nd husband and parents added to his memorial.

Appreciate your help and all the work you do on Find A Grave. Thanks.
