Minda Dye @ Oak Ridge Cemetery
I was going back through my old messages today. Since our prior conversations I have purchased the transcription of Oak Ridge Cemetery published in 1998. You had mentioned you would like to know the other members of the Dye Family buried there. The transcription includes:

Dye, John M. b. 21 JUN 1921 d. 29 OCT 1969
Kentucky SGT US Air Force World War II

Dye, Lillian b. 1905 d. 1981
Our sweet mom

There is an index listing for Marcella Dye but no information on the cited page or the previous and next pages.

Of course, anyone who died after 1997, when DGS was canvassing the cemetery, would not be included.

Best Wishes for a happy Spring!

Timothy Mccown
You may not know this but Timothy Mccown is the father of Madgie Tackett,My Grandmother.
According to the research of Jim Tackit of California. I never knew this fact and what it means to me is that I have no Tacketts in my bloodline.

Tinsley and extended families
Helen, first of all I would like to thank you for your hard work and efforts to make it possible for people like me who cannot visit cemeteries anymore to be able to see their extended families resting places. I appreciate you and Find A Grave so very much. Would you mind if I copy your photos for my family files on Ancestry and Family TreeMaker? I am trying very hard to leave files so that all of my extended family will have access to their heritage. I am fast running out of time (I am now 87) and would like to have a good trail for them to follow.
Thank you again for helping make this possible.

Lee McCown
Helen, you may want to check this out. You have Lee McCown #104033423 buried in Buckingham Cemetery...Jim Spencer has him in the Davidson Memorial Gardens #124764928 with a picture of his wife and his headstone. His wife is Blanche Little McCown #75472960 it is my memorial for her. I have her obit from the funeral home and it has her being buried in the Davidson Memorial Gardens. You had your memorial before Jim, but the wrong cemetery...don't know what you will need to do.
Hope this helps some,

Death Certificate
Hi Helen,
I am trying to find where my aunt, Ovada/Vadie/Vada Little Hall b Jun 29 1922 Floyd Co., KY d Apr 30 1996 Lexington, Fayette Co., KY Death Certificate No.12456 and her son, John Hall b May 1945 d Apr 4 1964 Woodford Co., KY lived in Lexington, Fayette Co., KY Death Certificate No. 09389. I need to know the name of the cemetery and County where they are buried (both are in same cemetery). I know it is just across the river from Ashland Co., KY, somewhere in Ohio.
Could be Lawrence Co., OH. I had the name but misplaced it.
Any help appreciated. You are good at this.
Thanks Judy
