|Bio and Links|
|An ameteur genealogist (inheriting all deceased family members' work), an archivist and a family historian, I am descended from Daniel Boone, Thomas Farmer, Isaiah Washburn, SR, Elisha Moore of KY and MO, Edmund Rutter, SR of KY and MO, Henry Walz of Germany and Charles Chaussee originally of Montreal, Canada. |
My sons are descended from James Wickens of England, James Corke of England, William Elder Summerville and those are the lines I am pursuing at Find A Grave.
My other entries are from various pages photocopied at libraries as I travel north and south hunting obituaries, burials and other info on both direct and collateral lines in the family.

|Old Country Roots||RE: Margaret Backus|
I would be happy to add any information that you would be willing to send. And I would be happy to transfer any family to you. I am not related to the Backus family except for Dr. Loretta Backus, who was my gg-grandfather's second wife. I'll transfer Margaret and you can decide on the others.

|T. B. Willis||Julian and Clarke families|
Last night, I added to findagrave most of the known Julian and Clarke individuals listed in the book on the Frankfort Cemetery, although it will take a while to learn the relationships and dates.
I plan to add Harriett L. Julian Clarke to the Lower Benson Pres. Cemetery soon.
Thanks for your help.
|T. B. Willis||Hamlett Julian|
I think it would be very appropriate to place a memorial site on findagrave for Hamlett Julian at the Lower Benson Presbyterian Cemetery since so many of the early members of this family were buried in this cemetery. You have gathered so much information on him and are most welcome to do this if you wish.
Thanks for preserving his memory.

|Deb Redmon||County Poor Farm|
I can find little in the way of stating if the Alms Houses/Poor Farms had burial grounds on them. What I did find leads me to believe they did not. I found records giving who was the keeper of the one in Bridgeport at various times. I also happened to have a "duh" moment and thought to look at my property map of Bridgeport and it shows it's location. It was literally just outside of Bridgeport. Based on the map, I would say it was on the property located on the East side of the old drive-in.
As for burials, I found that the city and county apparently had a common graveyard. I could find very little in the way of records, but there was one where they approved a new fence. Another made reference to it being "just outside the city up the hill." This one makes me believe that the burials were done in Greenhill as many locals still today say it was the pauper's graveyard.
If you want all of the notes I was able to make, just let me know. Once the courthouse is back in order (if that ever happens) I will inquire to their clerk's office to see where any records they may have on it are at and try to view some of them.

Hi Carolyn, you have been wonderful in fulfilling SAC requests, and so promply, I really appreciate your responsiveness. With help from members like you, we will hopefully get many of the Franklin Co., Frankfort families linked.
|Walter Chisholm||RE: County Poor Farm and Almshouse|
I inquired and got this response...
"The only County Poor Farm I am familiar with was located off US127 South. Turn east onto Miles Lane across from Sach's Grocery and go out that road a few miles. You come to Wash Road which turns to the right. It was somewhere in this area. Several months ago there was an article in the State Journal about the Poor Farm. Someone has purchased the property and has been remodeling the buildings."
That's all I can find out.
