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."
A little about me...

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.

I appreciated your information on playwright Austin Strong. Do you have any data on his wife Mary Holbrook Wilson Strong? I am looking for her death date and burial site. Thanks, C. Wilson

The stones are very hard to read. they are quite exposed and in the ground.
Genevieve : "Beloved wife & mother. Sprite. Loved by all."
George : "Loving husband, father. Captain of his industry"
Sarah : "Beloved wife & mother. Memories of love and song."
William : Beloved husband & father. Immortal in his love and his music."
I knew Mr & Mrs George Hammond. I was Mystic town librarian for 35 yrs and they used the library a lot. Very nice couple.
|Gail Lyons Grier||RE: Burgess...|
Thank you on Burgess information, I wonder if you are able to find any information on Hugh Norvell dates are 1767 to 1848 concerning his wife Susannah 1771 to 1846 they are my 4th great grand parents and are buried in Lyons Cemetery on Lyons Rd Barren Co Ky. People think Susannah maidens name is Bush but I can not find documentation to that. I do know that Bush family is around Barren Co Ky.
Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

|Gail Lyons Grier||Lyons Wells Cemeteries|
Maybe you can help me with clarifying these 2 cemeteries I have family members listed in both and can not tell if these are different cemeteries
1. Wells-Lyon Cave City Barren Co Ky
Cemetery is located about 1/2 mile south of Pruitt's Knob. It is about 200 yards southwest of where Happy Valley Road splits. On west side of the road about 100 yards behind house. It is enclosed in a rock wall.
2. Wells Cemtery
Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery is located on Wilson Road (Hwy. 685) about 3 miles from Cave City just off Hwy. 90 on the farm of Tim Shipley. After you turn off Hwy. 90 on to Wilson Rd., the cemetery is about 1/2 mile on the right side - very close to the road. It is well maintained inside a rock wall. See Google map below.
You are very good at this, thought you might know. Thanks for your time and efforts.
