Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Missouri girl, now residing in KY. and I have been hooked on finding my family since the 1960's but I put it on the back burner when I went to work.

One of the joys of my retirement is taking Find A Grave pictures for others and helping to link loved ones together. And many times there are additional family members that they didn't know are with their loved one.

Find A Grave is such a wonderful website as it has helped us to appreciate those who came before and to honor them.

My families are Greenlees, Driskell, Nash, Eustace, Weese, Aldrich, Brays and many more.

The pictures I take for you, belong to you. You may use them in you family tree but please credit me for taking the picture.

I would be happy to transfer any of my memorials to you as long as they meet Find A Grave guidelines and they are not my family.

RE: James W. Tandy, Co. A, 86th Illinois
Babs, I haven't been smart enough to find it. Did it mention his Civil War service and unit he served with? Thanks for all of your help. Sincerely, Baxter

RE: James W. Tandy, Co. A, 86th Illinois
Babs, I will try and contact ZT to see what they can tell me. I am guessing that James W. Tandy died there in Louisville. All I presently know about him is on his site. I really believe that he is the man who served in the 86th. If he is, he more than earned his government stone. Thanks for all you are doing and let me know if you ever learn anything more about him. Sincerely, Baxter

James W. Tandy, Co. A, 86th Illinois
Babs, I find myself indebted to you again far beyond my ability to repay you. You have photographed all of my 86th Illinois dead in the Cave Hill National Cemetery. Now you have photographed the site where I believe another veteran of the 86th is buried. His name was James W. Tandy and if he is the correct person, served as a Private in Co. A of the 86th Illinois. He VOLUNTEERED to serve in July of 1862 and served until discharged because of illness in January of 1863. He survived his illness, I believe, and went on to live a productive life, only, APPARENTLY, to be buried in an unmarked grave. If he is the correct individual, it is too bad he could not have been buried closer to his comrades who are buried in the Cave Hill National Cemetery.
First of all, let me THANK YOU for photographing the burial site. Many people just don't bother to get pictures of the site because there is not stone. I love to at least get pictures of the site, especially if it's a site of a veteran of the 86th. If I can prove he is a veteran of the 86th, I am going to do what I can to get him the correct Civil War veterans upright marble stone that he EARNED.
Can you tell me what the cemetery office has on this man? Do they have a record of him being a veteran, and if they do, the unit he served with?
Do you ever search for obits? If you do, would you consider seeing if there is a record of his death in the local papers and if it mentions his being in the service?
Let me know if you a better way for me to pursue this information. Thanks for all you have done for me in the past, Thanks for all you have done for Find A Grave and Thanks, again for taking the time to search and photograph the burial site of James W. Tandy and his family for me. Sincerely, Baxter

Powers Family
Hi, you wrote to me awhile back about the Powers cemetery that I listed in Bell County, KY by mistake as it is actually in Whitley County, KY.

I would like to correct my mistake & to fix all of the data that I have for the Powers as they are in my family tree, Alvin Powers is my 1st cousin so I was wondering if you might know where Alvin's parents Will Powers and Elizabeth Siler are buried at?

My 3rd great grandmother Malinda Powers is Will Powers sister & when I found her grave it was way out in the mountains located in an area that was not mowed or kept in good condition so I would like to try to find Will & Elizabeth's graves if possible, thank you for your time..... ~Denise~

RE: Cunningham's
Hi Barb,
Sorry for the delay. The Cunninghams in the plot across from the Odom plot are already listed. They're Samuel Harrison (#103048006), Nannie Murray (#84395040), Preston B (#103048077), and Eula Chambliss (#103048169) Cunningham. I don't know whether they connect to yours, but I expect you'll need to call the cemetery to see if they've got a record of yours being buried there. Hope this helps.

RE: John C Meranda
Hi, I removed the picture for now based on your statement that the middle initial was a C. The picture can always be posted again if it turns out it is an O. I don't have a list of the cemetery. I saw the problem in the findagrave listing when I looked at the dates for the memorial for John C. Meranda and John O. Meranda (Jr). and saw how the dates were so close as to be transcription errors, so I assume someone created John C. Meranda from a separate cemetery canvas where someone misread the stone. I suspect the Scott County Genealogy Society has a listing.
