|Angie Minchew||RE: Thank you!|
I will. I am doing the research on my family, now also. Good luck to you all.
|Angie Minchew||RE: Thank you!|
You are so welcome I actually know a couple of her granddaughters here and spoke with them when I went out. I also worked for one and her brother this week.
|Shawdau||RE: Lovit stone at Terre Haute|
They're getting harder to read. Ann's is just horrible but if you clean them, they fade away even faster. I took some pictures of this same cemetery back in 1998 and I'm glad I got them done then. Looking at the pictures from 1998 and the pictures from 2013, you can really see how quickly they are deteriorating. I want to get them digitally preserved before it's too late.

Arthur, Rhuey, and Lydia are on three sides of one stone. You would think William would be the fourth side but I can't read anything on that side. I'll take a picture of it and see if you can see William anywhere on it. He might have a separate stone from Lydia and the children. I'll check that.

|Dianne||RE: Hello from John Burnett|
Yes, I'm getting better but still pretty sore. After healing from surgery I will have to endure 5 weeks/5 days per of radiation followed by chemo. It's going to be a rough road, but I'm a tough old bird. I just pray I will be able to endure it.
What great news you sent! PA and just in time for some harsh winter weather---oops/sorry. From Wheeling to Red Bud Road will probably be about 2 hours. Off interstate 70, when you see the Maple Avenue/Route 60 exit, you will follow it/Maple/Route 60, clear through town and several miles north to Airy View Road slightly past a tavern called Green's Tea Room on the left at Shannon Road. On Route 60 a couple of miles north of Zanesville, don't miss stopping at Bill's BBQ in the area of Vista View. Good food!
I wish I would be able to meet up with you, but fear I won't be up to it. You can give me a call as I would be interested in knowing where this cemetery is--out of curiosity. My home phone number is 740-297-8050. John, have safe travels, enjoy your new territory and I'll be looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks so much for the well wishes,

You are welcome. Tired Creek holds a special place in my heart as the families of two of my Daddy's sisters are buried the. Hugh Harrison was married to one of his sisters. She is Alice Ausburn Harrison. I believe Pauline's husband was one of Uncle Hugh's brothers. I have other Harrison pictures that I haven't uploaded yet. We have been moving so I haven't had much time to work on them lately. We are in Leesburg, Ga now so I want be to do much in the Grady and Mitchell County areas for a while. I do have a good number of pictures I have taken before that I have saved so if you need anything else I may have it. Some one else was at Tired Creek after I was so if you need anything else from there they may be able to do it.
Best Wishes. Sue

I had searched for Gladys's stone previously but I was looking for Petty rather than Sheppard, so did not find it. I only realized that I had finally found her as I was uploading several dozen photos this morning. I'm really happy for you. I know what it means to make these family connections.
|Erin Antley||RE: Thank you!|
I found the pic on the local cemetery website and went ahead and added it to FINDAGRAVE. Let me know if you need anything else photo'd. Union Parish is fairly well-documented, most of the Caucasian cemeteries have listings and a lot of them have their own websites. I am currently working on documenting the local African American cemeteries which have been less well documented. The Taylor Cemetery photos are at: http://genealogytrails.com/lou/union/taylor_liberty_hill_cemetery.html
You can also find a lot of information regarding Louisiana Cemeteries at www.la-cemeteries.com!
|Wade Burwell||RE: Thank you!!!!|
It was my pleasure and I am so happy we were able to figure out New Oak Cliff Cemetery. While searching for this stone, I stumbled across a family that was supposed to have been buried in Old Cliff Cemetery and I have been searching for them for over a year.
|Dianne||RE: Dowell Cemetery|
I went out to Red Bud Road and found two log homes on the road with a pair of oil tanks across the road from each one. One had a steel gate and the other had a chain; both blocking access. It was dusk on Sunday evening, so I didn't bother trying to gain access as well as to let someone know where I was going. My cell phone was out of service in the area-we're talking pretty remote there!
I went to the Hopper Grove Cemetery, but it was kind of dusky out. There are only a few stones standing and at the back wooded edge, it appeared there was a stack of broken stones and a smaller stack leaning against a tree. I will have to find someone to go back out there with me in order to get to the woods. I took some pics but have not had a chance to download them yet. Will try and keep you posted!
