|CLukerTrue||Dunn Cemetery and Arnett Cemetery|
Hey, if you are going to be up here, you might want to go to Dunn Cemetery. You stay on 300 North and head east instead of turning like you are going to Eastes (on Sparks Road). Go two miles to 400 West and turn north (left). Go about one half mile and back behind the cornfield is Dunn Cemetery. You take the grassy path to the north of the field-it used to run along the railroad bed but railroad is abandoned now.
Arnett Cemetery is also on 300 North-you would have passed it at 500 West. It is right on the northeast corner and says Arnett Lowder Cemetery. Hope this will help. cyndie
|CLukerTrue||RE: Lucinda Arnett|
I am not sure how familiar you are with the area. So, I will probably give you too much information. Sorry-If you are at the I-70 and Mt. Comfort road exit in Hancock county Indiana, head north on Mt. Comfort Road or 600 West or Olio Road-it is called different things by different people. They are just finishing a roundabout at 300 North. Hoping you can turn right or east there. You are now headed east. Go past the school and the first road that you can turn right on is a little side road called Sparks Road. Turn right or south. Go to the end of the cul-de-sac and it is on the left hand side. At the end of the cul-de-sac is the transfer station which you access from Mt. Comfort Road. (new with in last 15 years). So basically, get off of the interstate, go north, take the first right at roundabout then take your first right onto sparks road. Little bit of history.....Years ago, there was a road next to the Wendy's on Mt. Comfort Road called Rays Road which T'd into Sparks Road. And Sparks Road went thru before there was the interstate. I am on the local pioneer cemetery board and have lots of information on the local cemeteries if you are looking for anyone else. I also have a stock pile of local history books here at home. My friend is tied to the Eastes and Arnetts and she has lots of history pertaining to them. And my husband's line crosses them every one in a while. You are welcome to call me if you want some help-I am off right now for two weeks for fall break but usually I am off by 3 pm-Librarian for an elementary school. 317-439-2049
|Patricia Laird||RE: Ages Cemetery|
The Ages Cemetery started out as a private burying ground. In fact, my grandfather's (Lemuel Ball's) record book was the first documentation beginning in 1911 - at a time when many of the families in the area had neither the money or the means to put up monuments or markers. Many of the graves were only marked with rocks. Since it was not a maintained graveyard, several of the families fenced off their sections to preserve the space for their own family use and also to care for their own plots.
There is an existing rock marker there that simply says E. B. Crider.It is possible that this rock marks the grave of Elizabeth Bailey Crider, first wife of George Crider. The grave is located next to William A. Crider. If you do a search on EB Crider in Ages Cemetery on findagrave.com, you will find a lenghty explanation on the family line.
If you went to the top of the Ages Cemetery access road and then walked to the left down the path along the top of the hill, my family is the Ball family at the end. Lemuel and Rebecca are my grandparents and Maurice and Jewell Housefield are my parents.
This cemetery is not maintained by the State or County.
|Patricia Laird||RE: Ages Cemetery|
I'm sorry, I have no further info for you regarding Nathan and Elizabeth Crider. I have only that information which I found on William's headstone.
The location of Ages Cemetery, is on a hilltop between the old Brookside Mines and Ages Hollow Road. To get to it, you go up Ages Hollow Road and cross the first bridge over Ages Creek. You will see a lane that cuts off to the left. Go up the lane. As you approach the house on the hill the lane makes a sharp left turn and then snakes up the hillside as a gravel road to the cemetery at the top of the hill. You can park at the top and there is room to turn your car or truck around to come back down.
If I can be of any further assistance please let me know.
|Dean Creech||RE: Enoch Creech location|
I live in Oregon, my family lived in Cumberland Kentucky that is in Harlan co. I have been in Cumberland one time in the last 30 years and that was in 1998, I was told that Enoch Was buried there. As far as the location goes all I can tell you is that it is up on the left side of hill as you turn in to sawmill hollow and to get up to the grave yard . It is about 100 years to the left of the road turning into saw mill hollow so I can not tell a road number. I think it is the main road going Whitesburg but I do not know for sure. I was told that it was marked by too stone
just before you go over the edge and fall to the main road below. you will know you are in the right place by the grave stones marked Joesph and
Ritter Creech and Lewis and Catherine Creech If
you are facing though too graves turn around 180 degree walk out to the edge and you should see too good size stones and that is where Enoch and his wife are buried. So I have been told please let me know if I am wrong.

I'm sorry for the long delay in transferring Mary Jane Courter Bailey to you, I got the email before we left on vacation & then it got lost in the shuffle upon our return. Mary Jane was married to Jesse Basil Bailey, brother to my ancestor, Caroline S. Bailey.
