Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Ashland, KY and now live in Benson, AZ. I have been doing my family research for several years. I am always looking for more information.
I am researching the Harris and Prater families of Pike Co., KY, and the Dingess & Richards families of West Virginia.
I will gladly make any corrections when I am made aware of them.
If I send you an edit of names of a persons spouse, children, and parents, without memorial numbers, I would like you to add the names to their bio. It makes them easier to trace.

If I have a memorial for your family members I will be glad to transfer them to you, but YOU MUST BE RELATED!!

George Berthel Lake
I see you manage the memorial for George Berthel Lake. I have found him connected to my great-grandfather, Grover Cleveland Lake, in the 1900 census. This is the only link I have for family for Grover outside my great-grandmother and my grandfather. I'm not sure of the relationship between Grover and George, but if you have any idea, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Albert G Chapman 1913-1941
Debbie, your memorial for this Albert G Chapman is one of two for the same guy. His death certificate says he was buried in the Chapman Memorial Cemetery, which is located on Main St (hwy 10) in front of the community home in Chapmanville, WV. Your's says Chapmanville Cemetery. The other memorial (Find A Grave #62370689) has the correct cemetery according to the DC, but it doesn't have the links that yours has. Just FYI. It doesn't seem that the poster (mike thompson) has been active recently. Find A Grave has been fixing this problem lately if you shoot them an email. Hope you are well, distant cuz. Oh, and Albert's mother, Fanny Butcher Chapman is in the Chapman Cemetery also. I posted an edit on your Albert page for the link to her today. Judi Wilson

Birdie Ethel Hager

Debbie, you have Birdie Hager's parents as Nimrod and Minnie Bryant Conley. Her marriage record and her death certificate (DC) both have her parents as John Palmer and Harriett Adams. Also her DC has her name misspelled BURDIE as her grave stone says BIRDIE. Have you uncovered some research that gives the Conley's as her parents? Thanks so much for all the work you've done on here. And great to touch bases with you again, girl. Judi Wilson

Price family memorials
Just wanted to thank you for all your work on Find A Grave, especially with my Price family (which also means Prestons, Rices, etc, etc.!) This has been a great source for helping me unravel this sometime convoluted family of mine!

Hi Debbie,

First I would like to thank you for your time and generosity in contributing to Find A is more appreciated.

I have a question on the spouse of Nettie Jane Cantrell. All of my records indicate that his name was Wiley F Pelfrey. I am aware that in a couple of census they listed his name as Wallie, but his name was Wiley. And he was the son of Daniel Boone Pelfrey and America Bryant. That includes the SSDI, Ky Death Records and the US Dept of Veteran's Affairs Death Records. But all of those records show he died in 1970.

Was she married to 2 different Pelfrey"s?...I am just confused now. I do not have a "Wallace Pelfrey" in my tree. I went back and reviewed all of my records and they all appear to be correct.

I found another memorial with conflicting information about Nettie. I am beginning to wonder if there were not 2 Nettie' Cantrell and one Pelfrey...but I do not have a Nettie Pelfrey in my tree either. I am going to research further in time, but if you could share your source for his first name, it would be most appreciated.

On top of it there are records of a Nettie Pelfrey married to a Stanley now I really am wondering if these are 2 separate "Nettie's" all mixed up because of similar DOB & DOD records. Any help would be appreciated.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Happy Trails,
Nancy Lynn Blakeslee

On the Find A Grave spot for Grandma Bowen, you have Lorena listed as a child. She was not. She was a niece by marriage.

There are also five of her children not listed in the record: Clarence, Charlie, Glenn, Hazel and Mattie.

Monte Bowen (grandson of Vina Bowen, as she was called most of her life.
