Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi - I am Sheila Curlis Skidmore - I was born in Lincoln County, Kentucky - but have lived most of my life in Tennessee. I have been married for more than 40 years and blessed with 2 wonderful daughters and 4 beautiful granddaughters. When our daughters married and moved away - I focused my extra time on searching for long lost ancestors and the stories of how they came to America and stopped along their way in many different locations. Most of these families finally made their final settlement in Ohio and Kentucky.

Some of my other joys in life are growing daylilies - watching and attending sporting events, having friends and family visit and sharing our Family Tree with others in the family. I have also enjoyed being a contributor volunteer for Find A Grave.

Please let me know of any corrections or additions that need to be made to any of my memorials. For transfers - I don't subscribe to the four-generation rule. If I've added a memorial for one of your relatives or friends and they are not part of my family tree and you would like to manage it, please let me know and I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you.

Please feel free to use any of the photos I have posted for your family genealogy, including your tree on I would appreciate it if you would credit that you got the photo from my posting on FAG. You may NOT use my photos "for profit" or in any form of advertising without my express permission.

Lets all share with one another and be respectful of the mothers, fathers, children, and family members of the memorials we manage.

RE: Thomas Lackey FAG #130233381
I just located that he was buried there by virtue of his death certificate. None of the other Lackey soldiers had markers until about 10 years ago. I have found an additional soldier (Jack Ross) whose grave is unmarked. Current VA policy makes it extremely difficult obtain grave markers for pre World War II vets. Among other things it requires that the next of kin make the applicaiton. Thanks for your efforts

I have also been contacted to make some connections to this family, but mine are starting with George Olivers Father and Mother, Shafer and Stella. I am in the process or adding the information and the links to Shafer and Stella-I have 7 of their children to connect. Some are in Indiana, some in Kentucky, and some in Florida. When I can get all this stuff taken care of I can transfer it, but I kinda hate to in the middle of this. I also have the memorials for George, his parents, and a few other family members.

Ashlock Cemetery Description
Would you do me a huge favor? Would you put more information in about the Ashlock Cemetery?

Ashlock Cemetery located near Hwy 27 on Gilbert's Creek near the Garrard/Lincoln County line just outside of Stanford, Kentucky on the old Ashlock/Holtzclaw homestead, which is now owned by the Sheron family.

Thank you!

The problem is that many books have listed the cemetery in Garrard County at different times through history, and some of our relative believe this is where the location of the cemetery.

Thanks again,
Tamela J Ashlock
