Gone But Not Forgotten....


From "How Green Was My Valley" by Richard Llewellyn:

" I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come, I looked back and saw my father, and his father, and all our fathers, and in front to see my son, and his son, and the sons upon sons beyond.
And their eyes were my eyes.

As I felt, so they had felt, and were to feel, as then, so now, as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I was in a long line that had no beginning and no end, and the hand of his father grasped my father's hand and his hand was in mine, and my unborn son took my right hand, and all, up and down the line that stretched from Time That Was to Time That Is, and is Not Yet, raised their hands to show the link, and we found that we were one, born of Woman, Son of Man, made in the Image, fashioned in the Womb by the Will of God, the Eternal Father."

I have always enjoyed oral history at an early age. Wish I had asked more questions now... In 1994 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer, went through surgery and chemo, I was given 3-6 years to live. So after I recovered from the treatments, in 1996 I decided to sell my home of 20 years and go on the road to research my family 1st-hand that were in my family files. I became a "fulltimeRVer" for six years; following the paths of my ancestors was a memorable experience and very humbling at times. I visited so many places I would never have visited otherwise... courthouses, libraries, cemeteries, meeting family and getting to actually stand on family land that my ancestors owned. Well, I am still here, I guess I still have ancestors to find and their stories to tell..... the oral history is out there, I just have to find the descendant that it was passed down to..

In addition to my family lines, I research Barren, Hart, Metcalfe and Warren Counties in KY.

Hiram Smith family
Laura, I am enjoying very much the info you have posted on Hiram Smith and family. He was my gr-gr-grandfather, his son, John Robert Smith, being my gr-grandfather. Thank you for doing such a thorough job. If you would like, I can furnish you with some info on Margaret(Maggie)Smith and James H.(Jim)Smith, the two other of Hiram's children who came west. I will be happy for you to have it to put on Hiram's findagrave page. Have also seen the pics of my Everett's graves in the Glasgow cemetery. Didn't know my gr-gr-aunts, Mariah Thompson and Susan Lewis were buried there. Thanks for putting them on findagrave, also. Still searching for William Field's grave. He may have moved out of Barren Co.

RE: Grave plot locations & photos for Stewart & Johnson
Laura -

You are really welcome - I think yours was the one that several people added notes. I know when it is my family - I want to know where they are even if a stone is not available. So I always try and take a area shot and let the family know who they are next to that have stones.

At Fairmount someone purchased a huge area and a gazebo was added. There are very old rosebushes from some of the early casket covers. Anyway the person purchased the area for families that can not afford a spot. The only problem is they are unmarked cremated remains so I take a photo of the gazebo and rosebushes.

Well need to run and let me know if you need any further help.
