Jim Hammons
I saw your suggestion on Jim Hammons' father but I don't think this Jim Hammons (#128121417) is the one you are seeking. I found his obituary and added it to the memorial page so you can check.

My dear Shirley,
We had just gone to dinner with friends the night before your note and they asked me if I thought they would ever solve Blake's case. For the very first time ever in 7 yrs and 11 mo, I told them no - I'm afraid that it will probably never happen. Then you sent me your note - out of the blue, and we don't even personally know each other. Well, to me that is God talking to me through YOU. Bless your heart for doing it. I thank you for your note of encouragement and that is what I needed to hear as it lifted my spirit again. God certainly hears all our prayers!

Needless to say, as You well know from waiting 7 years for justice for your 18 yr old Grandson Bo (Harold Bell Upton, III 1983-2002), time is full of pain and hard to bear. It is hard to believe that 5 people can hold such a gruesome secret about the murder of your precious grandson and continue to live and enjoy their lives for so long. It just doesn't make sense - nor does any reason for taking the life of an innocent CHILD.

God bless you and your family. I am so thankful that you got justice for your Grandson, Bo. May you and your family find healing and peace.

In good times and in bad, God is our safe resting place.

RE: # 101490881 Roger McQueen
Hi Shirley, I was just wondering if you have a copy of the Rockcastle County Cemetery book. Its a rather older book I think it was published in 1985 if I am not mistaken. Mine sure has helped me out a lot in this work.. They are supposed to be publishing a new one but I am not sure when it will be out but I sure hope to get me one. They have contacted me a few times and asked me if I would allow them to use my information and data on cemeteries that I have researched and taken pictures and of course it was an honor to do this... I will talk to you later.. enjoy your search... lol

Shirley - I'm sure I took the name from his death certificate though they are wrong on many occasions. Let me know if I need to make a change to the memorial. Thanks for your kind words!

RE: Isaac L. Sweet
I tried finding Isaac Sweet last week but couldn't find anything. The F. I. Jones that married Hannah Sweet was probably the father of the F. I. Jones that married Otha. Couldn't find anything on him either. I wanted to link Hannah & Susannah to their husbands but never found them.

I came across the same problem on a memorial. I left a message telling the person they had the right cemetery but in the wrong county. They never changed it so I added the information in the flower section like you did on this memorial.

RE: Hysinger Cemetery
I made a memorial for Mary Sigman and her mother and added that very long article about their murder. Her memorial number is 130754483. I don't have a cemetery for them yet. I will keep trying to locate their burial place. It has to be in Rockcastle Co. They lived in Upper Roundstone.
