Bio and Links
Bio Photo First and foremost I want to thank Diehard (#46809256) for sponsoring my mother's memorial. I know not who you are, but I do know you are a wonderful person.

My American ancestors include the families of Arnold, Bennett, Berrisford, Black, Branham, Bryant, Butler, Campbell, Cardwell, Dailey, Dickey, Finney, Fraser, Haas, Hales/Hale, Hawkins, Hieatt, Hughes, Jackson, Kendall, Lapsley, Lindsay, Litten, Littrell, Lloyd, Lutz, McBride, McQueen, Meffert/Mefford, Muir, Neal/O'Neal, Pace, Parsons, Perrin, Philips, Pierce, Powers, Pulliam, Redman/Redmon, Roberts, Rucker, Rush, Samms/Sams, Scott, Sheets, Shirley, Sudduth, Stewart, Stuart, Tuley/Tooley, Trout, Vallandingham, Ward, Williams, Wirt, Witt, Woods, and Woolums. I have traced many of these back to their Europeon roots as well. I will gladly share with you any information I have on their births or deaths. Feel free to ask.

I live in Kentucky, where I have spent the majority of my life, and have been doing genealogy for 43 years. As a young girl of 10, I was out walking graveyards, and scouring through court house records while most kids were playing with toys. I remember even before that, I would sit and read the papers my mother had on our family and go through old family albums over and over. I learned all the names of those in the pictures. I have always loved learning new things about my ancestors and their families.

James Gordon Bennett
Hello! I am wanting to get info on James Bennett's family. He was my 2nd great grandfather. I know that his father was John W Bennett. That is where my questions start. The name Tevis shows up a lot. I can't figure out if these are the Bennett's that connect them. We are trying to connect the Bennett family past John.

I have changed Lucille to Lula as I know she was referred to this way. I am unable to find the document, at this time, calling her Lucille. Glad to have her connected. Thanks Frieda

Re: Elizabeth Honnaker
Hi Deb,

Thanks for your note. I have changed Eliza's maiden name to correspond with your wishes. While I did add some information to her memorial, I don't believe that I specifically removed anything that you had already written. Granted, I did add a little bit of formatting (i.e. bold face type "Additional Information:") to your stuff, but I think that was the only real change. If I am mistaken, however, please know that it was not my intent to erase your work.

My main contribution to the page was the addition of the information pertaining to her guardianship and marriage to Isaac Honnaker. We research archivists tend to let the records speak for themselves, and in this particular case, the records clearly state that her name was Bryan and not Bryant. If you need proof, I have attached copies of the originals to her page. That being said, I can understand why you feel it's important to stick with the 'Bryant' spelling, so I will do just that. (Although, don't you find it interesting that Isaac's surname is spelled differently, yet Eliza's surname is spelled the same way—with the 'Bryan' spelling—in both of these primary sources? It does certainly make one wonder...)

Regardless, I appreciate your holding me to the Find-a-Grave standard of doing things. As you can tell, I'm a relatively new member of the Find-a-Grave community, so I'm still learning how things work around here.

Re: Honnaker Family

I apologize for the delay in my response! If your offer to transfer the rest of the Honnakers my way still stands, I will gladly take you up on it.

Hi Deb,

RE: George Butler Redman Obituary
I will pick them up on my next trip to the cemetery for you. I will let you know when I get them and we can figure out how to get the info to you then.
Merry Christmas,

RE: George Butler Redman Obituary
Hi Deb,
I am so glad this is helpful to you. If there is anything I can do for you on this end and help with verification I would be very happy to. I can get copies of the burial print outs if you need them. They tell who is buried and where and who owns the plot.

Hey Girl
Pleasant Union, Taylorsville, Spencer County Ky.
Hello Deb.
I've spoken with the OLD folks at home, I've been advise Pleasant Union is located in Little Mount, Spencer County Ky. I try to get a number for the church, no listing. Some say they are small and have no phone, others aren't sure if services are held there anymore. The only think they are sure of is the location. I pulled the death certificates of the two Redmon children buried there.
Stella's has Pleasant Union.
Vinson's has Pleasant Union Baptist Church at Little Mount. Vinson's death certificate as E M Reasor, Register, name where the funeral home or funeral director would sign. There was no undertaker. I know this, my husband is a funeral director, who thank God has retired. (two years)
By the way, I'm a old folk (68) the others who have lived in Spencer County all of their lives know the county.
I married and moved away in 1962. I'm sure their more knowledgeable then I.
You've worked very hard. I'm so grateful to all who've found their passion for genealogy.
I added you to my friends list.
