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 44 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.
re: memorial #74538299 You state that her mother is Jane Montgomery. I have just been going over my records for her father Robert Frier/Fryer and I can find no documentation for that maiden name nor even a marriage record. I am concluding that it is undocumented. Do you have other information? I would love to get this nailed down! Thanks for any help you can give.
RE: Tombstone Photos Deb the reason for this photo, is so other researcher will not as a volunteer to do a cemetery lookup, when there is not an existing headstone. This saves a lot of time and effort of a volunteer trying to find something that does not exist. This cemetery I personnel read and photographed all the existing headstones, even found some buried under trash and dirt. Four or five of us have searched this cemetery. When I did it, the cemetery had been trashed, tree and weeds around the headstones, several were toppled or broken. Pieces of headstone were being used to hold up headstones in other areas of the cemetery. It was a mess.
Still Born Redman Baby Boy Hey Deb, I found a OB for the stillborn Redman baby you found of Charles Redmon and Ruby Redmon. My great grandparents. It from the Shepherdsville news paper 1927 and says they buried him in Pleasant Grove Cemetery. I think he is buried in Bullitt Co. just like you said. Thanks for adding him again. There were a lot more babies that died back then and I think is shows us how strong our ancestors really were.
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.
Redmon in Odd Fellows Cemetery Hi Deb, I was able to get into the office today at Odd Fellows lawn and get copies of the burial cards for George Butler and Mary E. Redmon. I can either just transcribe you the info or if you would like to have the copies I can send them to you if you send me your address. You can contact me directly at email@example.com Blessings, Shelly
