|Bio and Links|
I was born in Cincinnati (Elmwood Place), Ohio. I was never interested in family history until I went to live with my mother and brother in Great Falls, Montana in 1990. I was so bored I decided to start working on my family history and used the information my aunt Lillian (Campbell) Delk had given me back in the 1960's to get started. I started at the Great Falls Genealogy Society, which also provided classes, and then on to the LDS Family History Center in Great Falls. |
Long before the computer age my mother and I would stop at cemeteries when we were on one of our road trips to look at the headstones, but never dreamed of taking pictures of them, except for one when we were in Chicago, because it was so unusual, and is shown as my bio picture.
My mother died in 2005 and my brother died in 2010 and I moved back to Ohio and now live with my son and his wife in Fairfield, Ohio (north of Cincinnati). I've joined the computer age since I've been back here, and Find A Grave is one of my favorites.
My sources for making memorials are the old newspapers at Kentuckiana Digital Library Home; Lincoln County, Kentucky Genealogy; Rootsweb Presents Kentucky Death Records; Lincoln County, Kentucky Tombstone Inscriptions & 1850 Census by Shirley Dunn; Bicentennial History of Waynesburg, Kentucky and Southern Lincoln County; and Pulaski County KY Cemetery Records, 3 vols.
I include as much information on the memorials that I can find so others that are searching can determine if it is the correct person they are looking for. A memorial with name, birth & death dates isn't always enough information to determine if it's the right person you are looking for. Some birth dates I have taken from the age of a person in their obituary which isn't always correct and just because dates are written in stone doesn't always mean they are correct either. I was taught to do my own research and not rely on research done by someone else. I only use other peoples research for clues. I found online that someone had my grandparents as my parents - so beware!
~~~~The newspaper images at Kentuckiana Digital Library are in the public domain and can be used on Find A Grave. They ask that credit be given to the Kentucky Digital Library as the source for the images. For those who want to use these newspapers go to Kentuckiana Digital Library Home and click on newspapers. ~~~
For the people that think you need a picture of the tombstone for every memorial - not everyone has a tombstone and this is not Find A "Tombstone." Sometimes the only way to Find A "Grave" is from an obituary. Many tombstones have been removed from cemeteries that were on farmland because the land was later used for farming and tombstones have been damaged or destroyed by farm animals. Some old cemeteries have been bulldozed so the land can be used for something else. I even read about a woman that removed a tombstone from one cemetery and put it in another cemetery. This is one of the reasons why I try to do as much research as I can on the memorials I make. Many contributors require proof of relationship before links are made. I consider birth, marriage, obituaries and family relationships that are included on my memorials as proof of relationship.
I don't mind doing transfers outside the FAG guidelines as long as they are related to you and you are not a surname collector. One of my aunt's was transferred to a surname collector and he refuses to transfer her to me and I don't wish to do the same to someone else.

|Melinda H Cooper||Garland Austin|
My late father Elton O'Conner Clem was a shipmate and close friend of 'Austin'. I recently found a journal that my father wrote about the fighting that occurred on the USS Colorado when Austin lost his life. I cried when I read it and always wondered who 'Austin' was. I just did a google search and found this information. I was so excited to finally make the connection. My father served 20 years on the USS Colorado and my current project is putting all his Navy stuff together. I have pictures of my father during this time and wonder if maybe the other person in some of these photos was Austin. Thank you again, this made me so happy to make the connection. Sincerely, Melinda Clem Cooper
Thanks for the family link suggestions on Susan and Mary Dillion. Don't know why I didn't do that before.
|Jo Murphie||Obit for James H Tucker|
Thank you for finding this obituary.
I have given you and Kentucky Digital Library credit when I added it to the memorial.
|Vickye Blatherwick||Bert H Squires or Squire|
His memorial is under Squire, I have his name listed as Squires. If you are family (Tinsley), do you know which spelling is correct. Thanks.
You have left a flower on his memorial, and I thought you might be related.
Thank you for the great up date

I was at Buffalo Springs today and will be uploading photos tomorrow (approx 50+) I will probably need at least two more visits there before I have done the entire cemetery with the current list of names. Feel free to send me an email with your full list of photo requests for both cemeteries (whether you have made the request here or not). Having the full list will make it easier for me & make fewer trips necessary. We will be taking pics as long as the weather is good and not too cold - then will restart in the spring. Dad & I are enjoying this so much - very glad to help!

|Cris Coleman||C.I.H. and Mary Jane Carter|
Joyce, thank you for providing such great information for C.I.H. Carter and Mary Jane Carter in the McCormack Cemetery in Lincoln County. Having their children's names and dates is simply marvelous.
Mary Jane was the sister of my gg grandfather Chapman S. Coleman of Harrison County, KY (ca. 1812 - 23 June 1854, the same day Mary Jane died.) Chapman married Mary Ann Carter (ca.1821 - ca. 1868/1869, location unknown), sister, I believe, to C.I.H. Carter.
I believe the father of C.I.H. and Mary Ann Carter was George L(ambert?) Carter of the Virginia Carters. My cousin has their father of the same name but from Indiana.
Allan R. Leach of Hustonville, Lincoln, KY has proved the Virginia connection beyond a doubt and has many documents from that line. However, I have been unable to contact him, so I don't know if he is still alive, ill or what.
If you know anyone connected to this line or the status and whereabouts of Mr. Leach, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you.
|John L||Pearl W Tinsley (#76918869)|
Do you have additional information for Pearl? I'm
pretty sure she was the daughter of Alfred & Mariah (Myers) Woolsey but I want confirmation before I request their names be added to her Memorial. She died about a year after her marriage in 1895. Her widower was Emmett Tinsley who remarried to Bessie Forsythe in 1904.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Alfred was a brother to my GG Grandfather.
Thanks very much,
