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.

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.

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.

RE: Deal Pleasant Sanders
Laura,

Thank you so much for your photos! My line is as follows:
Henry Sanders, Sr. (gggggg)
his son, Elijah Sanders (ggggg)
his son, John Chandler Sanders (gggg)
his son, John Chandler Sanders, Jr.(ggg)
his son, William Lewis Sanders (gg grandfather)
his son, Leslie Lee Sanders (great grandfather)
his daughter, Adalyne Sanders (grandmother)

Yes, I found Elijah's 1812 record. Are you familiar with Walter Sanders's genealogy on the Sanders family? It is stored at the library in Litchfield, Illinois.

Elijah married Darkus Chandler 13 March 1801. I have researched the Chandler family too.

I started working on my parents' genealogies in 2002. I had to retire after 25 years as a band and orchestra director due to MS, so I kicked my research into "high gear." I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and hope to get to Kentucky in the near future. The Library of Virginia in Richmond houses a huge collection of Kentucky records, so most of my research came from their collections.

If you have other documents or photos from our family, I would love to see them!

Thanks again and feel free to email me anytime!

Your Sanders memorials have been a great help in finding information on my Sanders family. I am a descendant of Henry Sanders, Sr. May I post your Sanders photos and headstone photos on my Ancestry tree, giving you credit?

I am looking for my 5th great grandfather's, Elijah Sanders, burial site and headstone. He died in Taylor County 30 May 1829. In addition, I am searching for his son's burial site and headstone, my 4th great grandfather, John Chandler Sanders, died 5 December 1863, in Campbellsville.

If you happen to find either of the above, please consider taking a photo. I'd be forever grateful!

Paula
