I am only an occassional contributor to findagrave, but I think it is a valuable resource. I can only do such work inbetween my regular job and my 20 or 30 other hobbies and interests (dang! LOL).|

|April Adeline Engler||Old Salem Cemetery|
I see you requested a picture from Old Salem Cemetery in Logan County, KY quite a while ago. The cemetery is land-locked as the road was rerouted in the early 1900's. However, I can get access to it, since my family knows the man who owns the farm where the cemetery can be found. It has recently been cleaned up and restored. I will get your picture within the next month.

He is no relation to me, so I transferred the memorial to you. I was in Nebr. City for a meeting and visited the cemetery on spare time and took photos. I happened to photograph theirs.

Entered your xtra info and linked to his father. Deleted relationship link to Stephen. Stephen's stone, however, says son of what looks like V C Scaggs. It as an old stone though and hard to read.....Thanks

In response to the prior messages regarding Carl Newton, as one of the great granddaughters of Mable and Carl I appreciate your honesty and inclusion of resources used to support your assertion that Carl was indeed a right scoundrel. It is my opinion that adults should not be protected from the truth. My parents and grandparents have all passed away. Your memorial explains the life experiences of my family and why some made the choices they did. While it may be uncomfortable to hear sordid details it is no less important for subsequent generations than tales of glory and accomplishment. I am grateful to have found this information and will no longer waste my time searching for missing links and dead ends, wondering about one bad apple in a tree of good fruit.

|dawn weatherwax||RE: Memorial|
You are also right, and I too believe family should know the truth. When reading what you wrote, it sounded rather harsh and hateful, maybe a more tasteful way to write the bio would have come out better. I also agree that knowing the truth does help future generations, but do not believe we should blame a wrong doer for our own mistakes.
I understand it may be the truth and your family has the documentation of proof it need not go on his memorial and really is against rules, but to place blame on him being the root of the problem, is not true, I have had plenty of issues such as ones you have described in my family tree also, some seem to carry from generation to generation, but this vicious cycle can be broke, it is up to you and your family to break that cycle, some have done it in mine some have not. Didnt mean to sound so harsh, it just really threw me reading it. EVERYONE makes mistakes, think of some of your own and why you did them, he had his reasons to, weather the mistakes are right or wrong they were his and he has to answer to the man above, but people left behind can learn from his mistakes, and NOT be followers just becuz he did it or started it.
You are welcome.

I've met Glenn Comer - the man is a walking history book about the area surrounding Union. Wonderful gentleman.
Would you like for me to transfer the family memorials to you?
As I recall there aren't any more Eatons in the cemetery, there might be some Comers yet that I haven't got.
There's a West Union Cemetery too, only been there once for just a short time. Nice cemetery too.
I received your messages re: Spratlens in Sidney Cemetery. I took the photo of Albert's headstone as I was taking photos of my family headstones be/ca it was laying flat against the ground almost unnoticed. I created records for the other Spratlens using the Fremont Co Cemetery Record Book. I assume you are family and I can transfer ownership to you for the 5 Spratlens buried in the Sidney Cemetery. I can also take photos of the other headstones next time I'm in Sidney. Let me know. :)
