The death date I posted came from Springhill index which showed buried April 32.
cemetery website indicates there is no marker for this person.

I double checked the Miner books and they only list the years. Someone must have sent me the specific dates and I updated the memorial, but I have no recollection of who it was or when they sent me the update, that memorial has been out there for two and a half years. If I find my source I will let you know.

The source for most of my Gallatin County entries is the Glen Miner Gallatin County Cemetery Books, which have been posted online. They are not 100% accurate but they are pretty good considering how damaged a lot of those stones were by the time they were read in the 1960s and 1970s. I don't know what their primary sources were but a lot of the people who added information to those books did a lot of other research to add to those entries. I would guess they had access to a lot of the family bibles, etc.
BTW, I will get to the correction for Susan Proctor but in the future please use the edit/SAC tab to send corrections. I get too many messages and in a lot of cases SACs left as messages scroll off the bottom of the page before I ever notice they are there and get to them.

Best, Larry Wilson

I have another picture of the Anna Campbell stone, but it is broken at the base. I didn't know if you wanted it on or not.

I see your photo request for Sarah Elizabeth Deacon-Thompson in the Hopewell Cemetery in Macon County Missouri. Sarah is one of my ancestors. Due to the fact I live in Texas I don't have a picture yet.
If you like, send me an email and I will reply with a full list of "New" plat maps, sub-plat maps and a spread sheet of the entire cemetery. The old hand drawn maps are available at the following url.
Note, they are bit hard to read....
Note: Sarah is in Plat B, Sub-plat b1, row 2, with her daughter and grandchildren. Caroline Deacon-Thompson-Gunn.
Sarah's finagrave # 91656387
My finagrave # 47891671
Note. Her husband "Silas" has yet to be found.
Sarah is the daughter of Noah and Sarah Elizabeth Deacon. They are located in the Bowen cemetery in Knox county Mo. Sarah is linked to them..

|D. A. Thompson||RE: William Thompson|
The Thompson side of my family probably goes back in KY into the late 1700's. Beginning with my dad, Walter Emmett Thompson, who was born in Somerset, KY, the line extends to his dad, Joseph (Joe) Thompson, who, I believe, was born in Rockcastle county, KY. His father was William (Wild Bill) Thompson, who had a most interesting history. According to family legend, Wild Bill had two families. The first family included my grandfather, Joe, along with his brothers and sisters, John Thompson, Gene Thompson, Sally Thompson, George Thompson (who moved to Sapulpa, OK), and others who I do not know. Wild Bill's second family, by a subsequent wife (the first one died) included Leonard Thompson, "Kitty Puss" Thompson, Earlou Thompson, and a multitude of siblings. Family legend says that Wild Bill sired almost 30 children. Some of the daughters married into the Mitchell family of Waynesburg, KY and my grandfather, Joe Thompson married into the Singleton family. Joe married Nona Mae Singleton, daughter of John Green Singleton. She is buried in Double Springs Cemetery, Waynesburg, KY. Joe Thompson is buried in the Riverside Cemetery at Clinton, IN. An interesting note, my paternal grandmother, Nona Mae, and my maternal grandmother, Josephine, were sisters, making me the offspring of first cousins. As you can tell, my knowledge is sketchy and needs to be filled out before I can create Find-a-grave memorials for everyone. That is my goal. I noted on William Thompson's death certificate that his father was either Tarton or Tarlton Thompson. Couldn't find any records for him. If he was born in KY, however, that would place him near to 1800 or perhaps earlier. Let me know what you think. Thanks a lot. Duane A. Thompson P.S. I'm 68 years old and running out of time. My legacy is going to be researching and recording my lineage for whoever may be interested in the future.
|D. A. Thompson||RE: William Thompson|
Thank you for replying, Valerie. Per your request, the name of the cemetery is Poplar Grove, at Brodhead, Rockcastle County, KY. The number of the memorial is #6991208. I want to begin creating memorials for my other relatives as soon as I can learn how. DAT
