|Bio and Links|
An old soldier, who is well-read and blessed with a good education. My interest in family history was fed by the women of my family, God bless them. My mother always assumed I'd write the family history, whatever that means. To the best of my knowledge she knew only her grandparents. Family lore had circulated about our ancestors rafting down the Ohio River. This was somewhat supported by a sheaf of fading, flaky photostats discussing the Mefford family of Mason County, Kentucky, which I inherited upon my mother's death. However, when analyzing the names I couldn't bridge the gaps between missing generations. In 1991, after I acquired my first computer, I discovered tools and a matrix in which to place my data and developed ways to expand upon it. With the passage of time, I have traced some of my lines of descent through the Plantagenets to the Counts of Anjou and Normandy, discovered numerous Colonials — even dating back to Colonial Jamestown, at least six Revolutionary War patriots, and I've encountered numerous cousins I hadn't known existed — some of those have become dear friends and collaborators. My mother would have been astounded and proud of the family I've rediscovered. N.B.: My maternal lines include, but are not limited to: Neal, Mefford [Meffert], Turley, Bailey, Raizor, Witcher, Dewitt, Sullivan, Rice, Rule, and Abshire. My paternal lines from Lebanon, to the best of my knowledge, include: Farris, Solomon [Suleiman], Hayek, al Khoury, Guttas, Ishe [Eishy], Tanous, Romanos, Shouwaysha, and Zoghby.|

Hi George, I'm only related to the Witchers through marriage (my Dads sister married into the Witchers). If there is ever any information that I can help you with please feel free to contact me, I'll help all I can.

You are very welcome George. Glad I could be of assistance.

He is not buried in the Gratz Cemetery he is in the Mount Minish Cemetery which some people call the Gratz Cemetery I'm trying to get the list merged together. And I will be going there this coming week so I'll see if I can find a stone.
|Nmc1964||Martha Nelson Grave Request|
The main headstone indicates it's for Nelson-Webb family. In addition to taking the picture of Martha Webb's stone, I also took a picture of Roy Worsham Webb 1888-1957 and Esther Witcher Webb 1896-1970. Please email me at email@example.com and let me know if you would like me to add those photos as well.

I have found the location of the Raisor Cemetery in Owen County Ky it is in Squiresville on Hensley lane. So I'll soon be make a trip there its just a few miles from here and I've done a few over there.
Your kind note what keeps me digging arouund in the bushes for these cemetery. Could your James Havey Raisor 1798- 2/14/1872 in Franklinton Ky be the son of Jacob Razoe 1795-1840 married to Ester Shoemaker 1795-1840 Delilah 1839 husband John Quincy Mefford 1824 if so you look a little like Delilah picture.

I live in Henry County Kentucky and live just a few miles from Gratz Kentucky. I have been trying to do
all cemetery in my area. I have found there is a cemetery along the Kentucky River across from Gratz that has Raisor in it. And I do wonder if this is where your family my be. I have found that some cemetery in this area are listed on the wrong side of the river. I haven't got to this one yet but hope to soon. I've spent time talking to a lot of old timers here just to fine some of the cemetery thats how I found out about this one. They call it the Raisor Cemetery and was told they owed land there. There are a lot of Raisor in this area. will let you know what I find.
|William Dilts||RE: A work of art|
You are very welcome. That was an interesting day weather-wise. Would say God had more to do with the photo than I did. You take enough of these and sometimes you get lucky.
