Bio and Links
Bio Photo Deeply interested in genealogy and found out about FAG through my Uncle Tom. I am researching the surnames Smith from eastern Ky as well as southern IL. Millers from the Clay and Bell County areas of Ky. Rapiers from Whitley, Knox, and Harlin Counties in Ky. Sumners and Futrells from Trigg County, Ky and southern IL. Reeders, Caseys, and Jenkins from southern IL. Harman-Harmon from North Carolina, especially Watauga County, and Missouri. Riddle, Tharp, and Tyrees from Missouri.

I do photo requests that are in my area. I also have created memorials for people not related to me so if you find someone and have information to add, I would be more than happy to do so.

My mind is like a bolt of ligthening, one brilliant flash and then it's gone.

Barbara Sumner 76192140-
Mrs. Sumner's first name was Bertha, not Barbara. She had a sister named Barbara. Would you please change the record to Bertha? I have a photo I will add once the change is made. Thank you.

Jonathan H. Thomas
Hello Chuck,

I visited the Starkie Thomas Cemetery with family yesterday, and took some photos. I noticed that the memorial you created for "John Harvey Thomas" (31358488) seems to be for Jonathan Harvey Thomas, so I requested an edit. I appreciate your creating the memorial!

Trigg County Cemetery's
Hello. I was wondering if you're familiar with these two cemeteries, both in Trigg County - Peyton Thomas & Bethel United Methodist? I'm looking for a way to contact their offices to see if Homer Louis "Boots" Randolph and his wife, Carolyn "Dee" Randolph are buried at either one. I can't seem to find a phone number for either one and was wondering if you might have that info or could point me in the right direction. (They're both listed here on Find A Grave but with no contact or even mapping info.)

Mr. Randolph's parents are in Peyton Thomas and his sister is buried in Bethel, so there's a possibility. I don't know if you're familiar with who he was, and pardon me if you are, but he was a famous Saxophonist, most known for his song, "Yakety Sax". He's listed here on Find A Grave but as a burial - unknown location and I'm hoping to fix that.

Any help you can offer would be gratefully appreciated and if not, I thank you for your time.

Best regards,
Emily E. Smith

Chuck, I've found a conflicting posting for subject ancestors, including photos of their headstones in the Allen Cemetery in Cheatham County, Tennessee, at Memorial Numbers 42214937 and 42214939. I wonder if you can tell me whether the information posted for these people in your memorial Numbers 31510409 and 31510391, shown in the House Cemetery, Linton, Trigg County, Kentucky, was obtained from visiting that cemetery or from other research you've done on the family. If from other research, I'd appreciate knowing your sources. Thanks so much for the valuable work you do.

could you please make the suggestions I have emailed to you for several memorials? You have most of my family listed as you are family too. I would really like to get things corrected and linked. Email me and let me know what is going on and why the long wait. Thanks

Alfred Thomas Cemetery
Hey Chuck, did you start the Alfred Cemetery in Trigg County? If so, I would like to give you the directions to add to the cemetery? Let me know!
Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!

Mary Anne Thomas Mitchell was married 2nd time to William R. Dunn. Her last name when she died would have been Dunn instead of Mitchell. Do you know which last name is on the tombstone since there is no picture to accompany the memorial yet? Phyllis Couch

Addie Marquess
Hello Chuck,
While researching a Marquess line I came upon a full Cemetery of duplicates. Your submissions are all correct and I sent this message to the person who submitted the wrong Cemetery Name. Just thought you may wish to know about it in case the other Cemetery was not removed. You may have to contact Find A Grave to correct the problem. So many Contributors have blocked messages and refuse to make any corrections. As has this person.
Best Wishes, Lettie

My suggestion to Contributor:
Correction of Cemetery Misspelled Name.
Peyton not Payton.
Please move submissions to the correct Cemetery.

Peyton Thomas Cemetery
Trigg County
Kentucky, USA

Please Remove

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.
I know how much work and time it takes to research and submit. We all strive to complete and correct to improve this site. Thank you for contributing to Find A Grave.

Best Wishes, Lettie
