Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Ashland, KY and now live in Benson, AZ. I have been doing my family research for several years. I am always looking for more information.
I am researching the Harris and Prater families of Pike Co., KY, and the Dingess & Richards families of West Virginia.
I will gladly make any corrections when I am made aware of them.
If I send you an edit of names of a persons spouse, children, and parents, without memorial numbers, I would like you to add the names to their bio. It makes them easier to trace.

If I have a memorial for your family members I will be glad to transfer them to you, but YOU MUST BE RELATED!!

Hi Debbie,

First I would like to thank you for your time and generosity in contributing to Find A is more appreciated.

I have a question on the spouse of Nettie Jane Cantrell. All of my records indicate that his name was Wiley F Pelfrey. I am aware that in a couple of census they listed his name as Wallie, but his name was Wiley. And he was the son of Daniel Boone Pelfrey and America Bryant. That includes the SSDI, Ky Death Records and the US Dept of Veteran's Affairs Death Records. But all of those records show he died in 1970.

Was she married to 2 different Pelfrey"s?...I am just confused now. I do not have a "Wallace Pelfrey" in my tree. I went back and reviewed all of my records and they all appear to be correct.

I found another memorial with conflicting information about Nettie. I am beginning to wonder if there were not 2 Nettie' Cantrell and one Pelfrey...but I do not have a Nettie Pelfrey in my tree either. I am going to research further in time, but if you could share your source for his first name, it would be most appreciated.

On top of it there are records of a Nettie Pelfrey married to a Stanley now I really am wondering if these are 2 separate "Nettie's" all mixed up because of similar DOB & DOD records. Any help would be appreciated.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Happy Trails,
Nancy Lynn Blakeslee

On the Find A Grave spot for Grandma Bowen, you have Lorena listed as a child. She was not. She was a niece by marriage.

There are also five of her children not listed in the record: Clarence, Charlie, Glenn, Hazel and Mattie.

Monte Bowen (grandson of Vina Bowen, as she was called most of her life.

Hall Ranch cemetery, Hilltop AZ
Hi Debbie, I live over in Portal near Hilltop and when I registered for FindAGrave a nitice came up that someone is looking for a photo of Hazel Hall's grave, in Hilltop. Do you know where this cemetery is? Hilltop is a mining ghost town on the divide between Pinery and Whitetail canyons. I just learned of a couple of graves in Whitetail, young girls who died in the 1918 epidemic. I ave asked several residents about the Hall Ranch graveyard but have not gotten any leads. All my family is from elsewhere, just have a curiosity about things like this and local history in this area.

Hello Debbie
Just an FYI to let you know that Miss Bettie Belle Rolfe Windsor's last name is mis-spelled a few times in her memorial. Correct spelling is Windsor.

Robert Wellman
I believe my mother went to live with Martha Wellman when my Grandmother Evelyn passed away. Recently learned Robert re-married, did not keep the children then died three years later.
My mother use to tell me her father died from a broken heart.
The only thing I know of my Grandmother Evelyn is that my mother Doris Lee said she loved music and dancing and laughing. When I asked how she handled her mothers death my mother told me the night after the furnal of her mother, (Rodney could not attend for he was still in the hospital and unaware of his wifes death) Evelyne came to her and sat on the end of her bed. I asked if she was frightened and she said it was very calming. Her mother told her she loved her and will always watch over her and her brother Rodney. She also told Doris to take care of her Brother, then went away.
Can anyone fill in some blanks?
