RE: kendrick ridge cemetery, grayson co.
Hi Val... nice hearing from you! It's been a long time since my trip to Grayson County, so I'm a little fuzzy on exactly how I found the cemetery. I was in Grayson County researching my Perkins family because I was interested in joining the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The cemetery is actually at the back of the James Perkins' family home. I went looking for it and the current owners pointed me at the cemetery. It's quite a walk and I had to cross their property and walk up the ridge to get to it. Another potential possibility is a newspaper story about a group of local school students that opened the grave of a Confederate soldier (J.B. Young) and took the pistol that he was buried with. They walked through the town and were caught with the grave-goods. The grave is still partially open. Perhaps your ancestor? Anyway, there were no Perkins' buried there, but I decided to take some gravestone photos. If I remeber correctly, the cemetery can be reached from a road that runs close to the ridge. I've seen it using Google. If you would like me to transfer the postings to you, no problem. Just give me your Find A Grave number. Also, see the website: http://www.newrivernotes.com/graysoncems/kridgecem.htm. That site has the GPS coordinates.

I have seen the reference you noted about William and Lavinia. The library at Columbus State University has a copy of the book and I had seen it there. Thanks!

Lessie
Hi Val,

I spoke to Barbara and she's thrilled to find out you knew Lessie! She'd write you herself but she's not on Find A Grave.

She'd like to know 2 things right now if you know:
1. Why is Lessie buried in Moreland when her husband was buried in Atlanta?
2. Is Lessie's daughter Martha Kirkland still alive?

Apparently the family lost track of Martha many years ago.

Thanks so much!

RE: Lessie Young
Hi Val,

My friend will be excited that you actually knew Lessie! Let me ask her what she needs and I'll get back to you, ok? BTW, do you have any photos of her?

Thanks so much!

Lessie Young
My friend has been doing research on her family (Young) for a VERY long time. She is looking for the obituary for Lessie Johnson Young, and I saw that you know a lot about her. Do you happen to have an obit? I've looking everywhere I can think of so far and have not come up with anything.

Thanks so much!

Sue

Possible connection to Marshall Brown Young
Val,

My mom told me that Marshall Brown Young was your great-grandfather. I would like to find out if you have a tree on Ancestry.com and if you have done the Ancestry DNA test. I am trying to figure out who one of my 2nd great-grandfathers was.

Regards,

Steven Bjarnason
