|Glenda Lambert-Gibson||Crosbt Cemetery|
Hi Paula, Thanks for responding to my question. I am so disappointed that the iron fence is gone. I was only there a few years ago and the fence was there, so sad. I know when I went the house was a rental, the people who lived there were very nice.
Yes this cemetery is on a hill behind a farm near Lone Fountain Virginia on HWY 250 The old Crosby plantation is on a hill just south from it. I took these pictures in March 2012. My mother-in-law (who is the 2nd great grand daughter of Amos Crosby Sr) and who lives in the area says she thought that it used to have an iron fence and there were was evidence of the spinels that used to be on the fence. When I was there the cemetery was in very poor shape and many of the graves stones were turned over or broken. Several years ago she was able to meet the owner of the home and look inside the house.

The picture of the Crosby Cemetery you have on Find A Grave is a totally different cemetery than the cemetery where I took the Crosby Cemetery photos. The cemetery where I took the photos had a black iron fence around it and was not surrounded by trees it was on a hill behind a farm. Would you please let me know where you found your information? I am concerned that we have two different palces.

Thanks you very much for taking this picture of the headstone. It helped me find out who his wife was. I appreciate your help.
Thank you for the headtone photo for Maude Minor
Paula: The message you sent ( RE: There is a John H. Dye listed in the index, however, don't think it could be your John H. He is Row 19 Site 16 between Grace Whiles and Leora and Ovil Godbey. DOB is Oct 25, 1864 and death Mar 1, 1923. There is not an Elizabeth Dye listed. Sorry that I couldn't be of more help.) about John H. Dye that was born in 1864 is not the John H. Dye I am looking for. I appreciate you checking the cemetery book for me. I guess John & Elizabeth are lost to the ages!!
Thanks so much.
Paula: I am wondering if the cemetery index you have of Bethelridge Cemetery shows whether or not a John H. Dye (#18474665) & Elizabeth (Watson) Dye (#18474716) buried in this cemetery.
Our family has always thought they were buried in Casey County, KY at Bethelridge, but no one has been able to come up with a tombstone for them. Right now I have them listed as "unknown burial".
As my notes on the memorials state -- I last find them in 1860 in Breckenridge Co., KY.
Since you have the index, and found Shedrick after everyone else said he had no tombstone, I just thought you might be able to help.
Paula -- I could hardly contain myself when I looked at your message and saw that you had found Shadrick Wesley's tombstone in Bethelridge Cemetery!! I can't tell you how many photograhers had looked for him and sent me messages that there was no tombstone for him.
I can't begin to thank you enough for your determination in walking this cemetery and finding his stone!!
I really appreciate your dedication as a volunteer photographer!!
Thank you so much.

Thanks so very much for posting a photo of William O Durrett's headstone - I had pretty much given up hope of ever seeing it!
Appreciate all your time and effort.
