Bio and Links
Bio Photo I lived in Alvaton a small community in southeastern Warren County, Kentucky, for most of my life. I now live in Bowling Green just northwest of Alvaton. My great-great-great grandfather Miles Carey Sledge came to Kentucky in the early 1800's from Virginia. I am retired from a Caterpiller dealership after working 37 years there. Have been interested in genealogy for years. I am an Army veteran with service in Viet Nam (1969).

Memorial Transfers

I have lived in the Greenhill area of Warren County for most of my life. My g-g-g grandfather came to Barren County from VA in about 1810. His son Samuel T Lee settled in the Goshen district of Warren County in about 1840. My father was Roy Elmo Lee and grandfather was Roy Calvin Lee. I remember dad and grandad mentioning the Sledge families of Alvaton. My older brother and sisters (Delores, Barbara, and Mike) attended Alvaton HS and had Sledges for classmates.

William if the following Adkison families are not related to you then could you transfer memorials found at the Pleasant Hill Christian Church Cemetery for the following relatives of mine:

1) James Curtis Adkison - 92086821 - 3rd cousin
2) Jerry Leon Adkison - 92086765 - 3rd cousin
3) Floyd G Adkison - 96662247 - 2nd cousin 1x removed

I am working on getting the Pleasant Hill Christian Church and Thomas cemeteries completely updated with correct information and photos for all graves.

Many of my family members are buried in these two cemeteries. I am related to the Lee, Keen, Atkinson, Milam, Harlow, Robertson, Hodges, Duffer and Hines families located in these cemeteries.

I have J. Knight (43025090) & his wife Mary Curd in Fairview Cemetery #2. Someone just told me should be #1. But you've got pics of both so I was hoping you could tell me if they're in 1 or 2.

Please reply to dmleforce at gmail dot com.

Thanks. :)

Thank you!
First, a Thank you for your military service...may I assure you there are many of us who remember those difficult and harsh years for those who served our country...those who never returned, those who were returned under the flag which covered them, those who were wounded and those who did survive but still carry the memories deep inside. Again, there are many who feel deep gratitude and respect from generation to generation.

I appreciate the photo and placement on the memorial page...summer takes you "the extra mile" because of the heat!
