I go by my middle name, Liz. I am the Grandaughter of Thomas Jefferson Alverson, and Melissa Jane Mattingly Harris Alverson who after considerable research I found them both buried in Williams Cemetery Grayson County, Ky. Thank you William for transferring my Grandmothers Memorial to me, and I will make one for my Grandfather. I will add to her Memorial as time allows, and maybe find more cousins, as well as allowing for the respect and dignity people should be alloted.
Melissa Alverson Liz, Melissa Janes Mattingly Harris Alverson is my wife's great grandmother. My wifes dad (Sherman L Harris) and her grandfather (Isaac Harris) are also buried in the Williams cemetery. We are in Louisville and are going down to visit the cemetery now that we know there are more relatives buried there. Don't know if you have an ancestry.com account but I have found most of my information on this web site. I plan on takinf a lot of pictures there and get the GPS location of the cemetery.
Winnie Alverson Good to hear from you again, Liz! I don't have any addition information on Winnie. She may be buried in an unmarked grave beside Elijah. Could I get you to link Thomas Jefferson Alverson to his father, Elijah Alverson? Just go to Thomas' memorial and you will see "family links" click on that and just type in #57143033(Memorial # for Elijah) in space for his father. It is easy. You will also want to link Benjamin Alverson to his wife and father. Thank you and if you have any questions, please free to ask. Sincerely, Your cousin Fran
RE: Holland Cemetery The Holland Branch cemetery is just off Hwy 421 and just a stone's throw from the Hwy 11 cut off to go to Oneida. I have no substantial knowledge of this family except to say that I recently located the grave of his daugher, Martha, and Martha's husband, Leonard Jones, near that of Coleman. Leonard was a first cousin of my late grandmother. I did get to speak briefly this past fall with Ruth Cope, a widowed daughter-in-law of Coleman.
