Annie Catherine Parrish Markham cemetery
.A, thank you for your response. Fortunately Oscar Markham and his 1st wife Bonnie have been found in Clinton Cemetery -- also their son Charles have been found Riverside Cemetery. But I would really appreciate your help with the cemetery for Anne (Annie) Catherine Parrish Markham, died Dec 31, 1999 apparently in Clinton KY. She may also be in Clinton Cemetery but since theirs was a second marriage and she died so much later, she may be buried elsewhere.
Thanks so much,

RE:Reverend Oscar Clyde "O. C." Markham and wife Annie Catherine Parrish Markham
Hi A, a friend found the cemetery for Oscar Markham - Clinton Cemetery in Clinton. But she didn't find anything on Annie Catherine Parrish Markham. I first thought Annie would be in Clinton also, but they married late in life and she may be buried elsewhere with a first husband. But I would still appreciate the obituaries for both of them for my records, if you should happen to find them...

Reverend Oscar Clyde "O. C." Markham and wife Annie Catherine Parrish Markham.
Hi - I was given your name by Diane Kipplen who said you sometimes do obituary searches for the Paducah KY area and I would very much appreciate your services.

I am trying to find the burial location for Reverend Oscar Clyde "O. C." Markham and his 2nd wife Annie Catherine Parrish Markham. The SSDI shows Mayfield for Oscar and another source shows Clinton but as he was a preacher they lived in several places. I can't find either of them on Findagrave which is rather surprising since both were rather well known in that area. Oscar was one of the co-founders and president for almost 20 years of the West KY Bible College (now known as Mid-Continent University) and she the librarian there. After his death she was known for teaching and founding libraries all over the world. She was also the author of "People Are All Alike Under Their Skins".

Annie was born in McNeill, Pearl River, Mississippi in 1905. He was born in Giles County Tennessee in 1900 and died in 1976 - she in 1999, in Mayfield or Clinton. Oscar's son, Charles E Markham (obituary 1993) was buried in Riverside in Hopkinsville- so they may be buried there but I can't find a cemetery listing for it. l'd like very much for them to be remembered with memorials on Findagrave but just can't find the cemetery where they are buried. I have even wondered if possibly they were buried on the grounds of the University but have found nothing to indicate that. I'm hoping there are obituaries and/or articles in Kentucky newspapers but I have found nothing online. Help in locating their burial locations would be greatly appreciated!

Alexander and Sarah Bruce McClanahan
Thank you so much for the obit of my great grandmother. I did not know it existed. It does bring up new questions though since our records to date indicate that at the time of her death she only had 3 living children not five. Solve one mystery and another one comes up. I don't know what to think about Alexander we may never know for sure where he is buried. It could be Hebron since the relatives making the decision might have been his nephews in Kentucky, because his living children were all in Arkansas at the time of his death. Could you tell me of the sources you use to look up the obits? Are there books of them taken from newspaper records? In the case of a cemetery belonging to a church, Do the churches keep such records, that long ago?

You sent me the following message.
"According to Mr. McClanahan's
obituary and his Ky Death Cert., he was buried in the Hebron Church Cemetery
in Graves Co. Ky

Would you mind changing his burial location,, If it matching your data? Thanks"

Alexander McClanahan was my Great Grandfather. I found his death certificate as a happy accident since as you can see his name is misspelled. The information on his death certificate appears to be correct except I questioned his burial place because his wife and his children who died in Kentucky are buried in St Jerome Catholic Church Cemetery, Fancy Farm, KY. They were catholic and I believe he would have wanted to be buried there also. In regard to the Obit some things match and others do not. My ggrandfather did have two nephews who are mentioned in the obit but his brother George died before Alex in 1916. He also had three living children, two who attended his funeral even though they were living in Arkansas, who are not mentioned. I visited St. Jerome Cemetery in 1912 before I found the death certificate so I did not know about the Hebron Connection and did not go there to look for his grave which might or might not be marked. So I need some other proof that he is buried there before I will change his burial place. I would love to know for sure where he is buried. My grandmother his 3rd child who did not attend his funeral and was living in Arkansas at the time said he was buried in Mayfield according to her sister who did attend the funeral. I wonder if there is a Census of the Hebron Cemetery from another source? Thank you so much for posting the obit, another piece in a puzzle.

The Temple Cemetery Photo Requests
You requested photos of the graves of Christine and Leo Stahr from The Temple Cemetery in Louisville. The Temple Cemetery is online. Just type into Google: jewish cemetery louisville. The first link is for Click on that, and it will take you to the page where all of Louisville's Jewish cemeteries are listed. Click on The Temple, go to the correct alphabetical page, and you will see the Stahrs listed. You can click on both of them and you will see the photo of their grave. You can right click on the photo, click "save as," and save it to your computer. Knowing that, do you still need to have photos put on findagrave?
