RE: Isaac Y(?) Radford 1848-1895 Isaac was my greatgrandfather. Over the years I talked to many of his grandchildren, and none knew what the "Y" stands for, and concluded that it was likely a mistake. They knew him as Isaac Jacob Radford.
RE: Willis Zachriah Peters Yes no where can I verify middle names for Great Aunt Ruth and Willis. I do find that several sources have Ruth marrying William, not Willis. I think I picked up the names from HALE data 8 or 10 years. ago. I have changed their memorials. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you so much! I went back to the message that Merlin's widow sent to me and she definitely wrote "Deerfield" but apparently meant "Deanefield" - I appreciate all of your work.
Thank you also for the reference to the cemetery book.
As I understand it, from people who have been to Ohio County to search for Kelley graves, there are several Kelley cemeteries. Does the book shed any light on that, and/or give locations of the different Kelley cemeteries?
RE: Merlin J. Kelley I am sorry for taking so long to reply to you. Ohio County is a complex county with all the little communities in it. There are so many that if you didn't grow up there you would be very confused. Merlin is buried in the Kelly Cemetery. It is located on the right side as you go out Sunnydale Road. Sunnydale road is off Hwy #54 which runs from Owensboro to Fordsville. There are a lot of Kelly's buried there. I did get my information off of cemetery records and the book: Ohio County Cemeteries 1982 ~ 2002 published by McDowell House for Ohio County Genealogical Society The community is actual called Deanefield, which is very close in spelling to Deerfield. Fayette county is 3 hours away from Ohio County. So yes I am 100% positive that he is buried in the Kelly Cemetery. Karen
I've added a note per your request. I'm wiling to delete the record if you prefer.
