Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired after 35 years in the computer services industry and an avid genealogy buff. I am very happy to be a find a grave volunteer.

My genealogy links are to Scotland, England, Iceland and Germany.

As a Vietnam veteran and involved with the preservation of knowledge about the Armor Officer Candidate School(OCS)at Fort Knox Kentucky that I graduated from. Findagrave has been invaluable in finding the classmates we lost in Vietnam.

Glad to help when I can and very appreciative of all the other volunteers.

RE: Lewis
I wanted to write this for some time, but somehow never did. Bill's grave is 1275 miles from me, but I wanted to go there for a long time. We were best friends in college and I was very long overdue for a visit. His son is buried right beside him.
Thanks for giving me the boost to get there.

Preacher cemetery
My name is Susan Ayers and I have a letter that my Great Grandmother wrote around 1895 referring to my Great Grandfathers burial at Preacher Cemetery in 1894. He was buried there because when he died, the "creek was out" and they couldn't get his body "to town". I am aware that he does not have a marker, I doubt that he ever did. His name is Wiley Marion Ayers. He was born in 1854 in Tennessee. He was plowing his field and "took sick just after noon. He passed before suppertime the same day"..

I was in the area today and I would love to see the cemetery. I was down there today because our deer lease is right around the corner off of 219. Do you still own the land?

RE: Breski
Hi Hugh,
I just wanted to let you know that I redid the memorial of his stone for you.

RE: Breski
I'd think that would be harder for the body to get used to than maintaining one awful cold temp for months. lol

Be careful with the ice.

Preacher Cemetery
Hello Hugh , we had talked about a year ago . And I was wondering ...are you the one that gave me all the wonderful photos of the Preacher Cemetery and are you the one that has been there and knows how to get there ? I am not sure if it was you or maybe Bob Carpenter. My memory is not what it used to be. The reason I am asking is the Great Grand Daughter
of J.J Atkinson was trying to find the Preacher Cemetery and would like to get it cleaned up . I live in Redding, Calif . I wish I could help in the clean up but live too far. let me know if you have the directions on how to get to the preacher cemetery so I can pass it on to Our cousin. Or i can give you her info. Thank cousin , Blessing's to you and your family , Susan
