Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy since 1992 when I actually went to Kentucky to check on the old Young farm in Guston and also to Wytheville, Virginia, to check on my Umberger ancestors.
My ancestor, Greenberry F Young settled in Brandenburg after marrying Ann Simmons there in 1832. In 1850, he was in Lawrence County Indiana after going broke. His oldest son, William Davis Young re-appears in Meade County to marry Sally Ashcraft in 1862.

I am also working on the relatives of my maternal grandfather, Victor Glenn Umberger, and his father, Franklin T Umberger, of Wythe Co, VA.

I am truly grateful for how much easier the Internet has made genealogy activity; especially the databases at Ancestry, FamilySearch and FindaGrave.

Claude Holt Keith Request
Dear Davis,

Thank you so much for taking the time to fulfill my request. I also appreciate the picture of the headstone from a distance inasmuch as his son is interred beside him, but as of yet, does not have a marker. That will be rectified soon.

With much appreciation,
Marina Yeager

zYou sent a message to me, but addressed it Linda, so I am not sure if it is for me or Linda.

Can you please go to this memorial and delete the photo of the grass which says no marker??? there was a marker, broken, but there, and we have a new marker that I would like to place a photo of, but it will not let me delete the photo that you uploaded?

Can you please do that.

Thank You so Much

Hay Davis. Thank you so much for attempting to get Jimmy Dale's headstone. When you couldn't find one, it drove me to want to put one on his grave, but low and behold when we got out there, we find his grave, complete with "broken" headstone. And the grounds keeper remembered you being there and looking for his grave. Ijust happened to look down and found it.

Thanks to you attempting to find his grave and supply a photo, we now get a new stone for Jimmy Dale, compliments of the Cemetery.

Thank You So much.
Orville McGee, Jimmy Dale's brother
