|Bio and Links|
|Semi-retired from clinical information technology & teaching. I've been doing computer-based family tree record keeping for almost 40 years now. Only recently have I become sufficiently conscientious that I can call it genealogy. I started after a 1976 family reunion when 3 of us casually drew family trees on a paper tablecloth as we interviewed various matriarchs and patriarchs. My mom saved it and presented it to me, saying "I had to fight my cousin for this, but I said that you work on computers and would do something with it, so do it!". (There were 636 names on that tablecloth; I still have it.)|
I now have a website that uses the TNG genealogy software package, which I also actively modify.
I live in Cleveland, Ohio, but have moved a lot. My roots are in Texas and Tennessee, and points east. Over 250 of my direct ancestors died in America, going back to Plymouth Colony, Jamestown, and New Amsterdam. Mostly British Isles, Dutch, and a little German.

|Wendell Walker||RE: Where is Pikeville City Cemetery|
Go thru Pikeville pass old High School, first road turn right. I believe Blackburn Road or Street.
Stay on by-pass, just below Pikeville you will see it on left, going South on US 127. I think one can enter from US 127.
It`s easy to find, once in Pikeville
|Isaac Settle||RE: Point Pleasant Cemetery, Ohio Co, KY|
I, too, am related to the Coffman's. I would love to help you find the cemetery. There are actually like 3 in that area. I am related to most all too. It is better to reach me at my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please shoot me an email very soon!

First let me thank you for the correction. As soon as I saw your note I knew I had messed up.
I am from that area of Carteret County and knew many Truetts and Truitts. I never thought about how they spelled their names. But there were two different families I believe.
One thing I do know and it upsets me is the Graveyard was named Buzzards Bay Cemeteries for many years. A man from South River decided he did not like the name and went to a lot of trouble to have it changed by the County. He more than likely won't do more damage as he died last year.
Lukens is not on an island and I have no idea where that started but it was not accesable by road until several years ago.
Sorry to carry on but I still that part of the country as that is where my mothers family came from, also all her children were born there except me and I was born about 20 mile north of there.

|Joanne Slayden Hughey||RE: Mount Eden Cem, Floyd Co, IN|
That is a really funny story. I was searching for my family in Mount Eden Cemetery in Washington County, In. Somehow we crossed into Floyd County and didn't realize we had done that. We just started asking people where Mt. Eden Cemetery was. We finally found someone who knew. It is in the middle of a field. We ask the owners of the property next to it to cross their property and they allowed us to. It has an overgrown road. You have to climb over fallen trees and it's a shame our cemeteries are not kept up. There are stones, but weather has ruined most of them. I just took the one picture I couldn't believe it was in such good shape. Strange, someone put in a request not long after that. It is my favorite story. We ended up with scratches, scrapes and poison ivy and no family photos. Finally we did find Mt Eden Cemetery in Washington County and a lot of family photos.

I see there's still no map for this little gem - if you'll send me the coordinates I'll have a map placed on the cemetery page.

If you live near Cookeville call me & I'll take you there.
The cemetery is more near N. Hill Rd.
|imagal49||RE: Kuykendall cemetery page|
Only the person who originally sets up the cemetery page can edit the coordinates and add a map. If you send them to me, I know a few folks at Find A Grave who can get it done for us. Once you get approval to use the photo, you can upload that yourself to the cemetery page - it takes a few days for them to 'approve' the photo but it's almost always done.
As I remember now, I tried to get into that cemetery. I think you have to cross a farmer's land to enter and he wasn't in a great mood that day and wouldn't agree. Perhaps another try by someone else would gain better results, me being a Yankee.
Good luck and the merriest of Christmas to you.

The kuykendall Family cemetery :
Take Dotson Branch Rd.(135) out of Cookeville north to Allen Rd., turn left go to Kuykendall Rd., turn right, go 1.7 miles to a gate on left (old shed?), thru gate to top of hill.
Seems like all the cemetery locations in this area are couched in riddles - the old timers didn't want any outsiders to know how to locate them, and they're pretty much the same now. I'll see if I can do some checking around (not being a native here I probably won't have much success) and see what I can find. Give me a day or 2 and I'll get back to you - I think I have an old cemetery map around here somewhere that might have a listing for it - just have to dig it out. Hang in there.
