Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist doing research on my Sanders' roots, along with the Gupton family, Miller, Beard, Sapp, Bridgewater, Russell, Banks families as well. My family, both paternal and maternal have been in this area since before Kentucky was a state. My roots hail from Maryland, Virginia, to Green, Taylor, Casey, Pulaski, Adair and Marion Counties. I can rarely pass up a cemetery when I find a new one, and love to photograph them and then post the pictures here. I am an officer in our local Jane Lampton DAR Chapter and also an officer in the Adair County Genealogical Society. I am presently working on becoming a member of the Daughters of 1812, the Daughters of the Confederacy and also the Daughters of the Union. Another project I have revived after being put on the back burner for a while is a series of cemetery books regarding local cemeteries. If you notice I have omitted something or posted something in error, please message me and let me know, I will gladly make any corrections or additions.

W. T. Lemmon's wife's name is wrong
I am the great granddaughter of William Thomas Lemmons and Lillie Hayes is my great grandmother's name no KERR. She is buried in the Lemmons' Bend cemetery near the old home place and Hope Church is there not far from the cemetery. If you need more information I will be happy to give you the ancestry list of the Lemmons' in that cemetery.

Thank you, Wilma Jean Lemons granddaughter of Twyman Allen Lemons and great granddaughter of William Thomas "tom" Lemmon.

RE: Lemmon's Bend Cemetery
Laura--thanks for the clarification. Have you visited the older cemetery at Lemmon's Bend? My ancestor John Lemmon Sr. was the original settler of Lemmon's Bend--the bend is named after him. It is his gave that I'm really interested in.

Lemmon's Bend Cemetery
Laura--thanks for recording the info on headstone of John J. Lemmon and his wife, Rosa. I've been told in years past that they were buried in the Lemmon's Bend Cemetery--is the Good Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery the old Lemmon's Bend Cemetery?

RE: Robert Gupton
I saw where you deleted your memorial. You did so much work getting all the links on there.
Since he was your grandfather, you should be able to have the memorial transferred to you.

Best of luck.

If Ancestry would just change the "rule" about duplicates, people could add and design the memorials with their own preferences and everyone would be happy!!!

Unfortunately, they haven't done that and they have tightened up the "rules" about transfers of memorials where the contributor is deceased.

RE: Robert Gupton
No correction. Just wanted you to know that there was already a memorial for him by someone named Laura.

I really wish they would permit duplicate memorials and I thought that when Ancestry took over Find A Grave they would change the rules. Duplicate memorials don't hurt anything. It just makes the linking a little tricky. It also takes a lot of time checking for duplicate before you add the memorial.

There are a lot of people that get real nasty about those rules. People add memorials for various reasons and don't understand where others are coming from. I'm just trying to share obituaries.

They have tightened up the rules about transfers since Ancestry took over. When a contributor dies, you have to be a family member to get the memorial transferred.

Since Robert Gupton was your grandfather, it is your right to have your own memorial.

RE: Touching base
Laura Jane,

I will keep your father in my prayers for a swift recovery! I was reading about Clay Hill recently and wondered if the house was open. I appreciate your willingness to share what you find there. Stay in touch.

Paula
