Isham Carr
Hi John, I have mailed with a couple other Carr researchers and I feel you are correct about the mother of Isham. I think Elizabeth died before Isham was born. I have made the correction and connected Isham with his parents. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Janet Dunlap

RE: George W St John
Sounds like you have many relations in Owsley & Jackson counties also. I live in northern Ky but still visit my cousins in Jackson Co. I was born in Tyner, Ky so get back down quite often. Even more now that I'm chasing down relatives. If we're at a cemetery, we try to photo all of it & I add pics &, even, create memorials if they aren't on "find". Happy you are connecting to your past. I know "find" has helped me locate many of mine.

George W St John
Thanks for his birth info. Just noticed Renee's message so will check Watkins Casteel Cem & Felix Burns. She, her mom, & I have been working on getting the cemeteries & memorials straightened out.

Would you please move your person to Watkins/Casteel Cemetery Laurel County Ky

Once you get him there I can get find a grave to merge the memorials as one. Below is what I will get merged when Mr Felix Burns is in correct place.

Sarah Goodman date of death
Could you double check the date of death. The gravestone shows Apr 22 1932. If that is not correct I will change it. Myron

RE: Lucille McCurdy

I just searched for a good hour and came up empty. I found a Granville Jones with a wife Mary in Brown Co., Ohio. There was a daughter, aged 7, named Louisa. Could it be Lucille? Possibly, but who knows. I found the marriage record for this couple, and the mother's maiden name was also Jones. I also found all the records you had showing Lucille as a Taylor. Lucille's death certificate says she was born in Kentucky, d/o Granville and Mary (Silvis) Jones, both born Kentucky. The informant was her son Rollin. I am going to put a note on her record that her maiden name may have been Taylor.

Lucille McCurdy

Regarding your correction to change Lucille's maiden name from Jones to Taylor - her death certificate gives the names of her parents as Granville Jones and Mary Silvis. If you can give me a good case for "Taylor" I would be happy to research it further.

Thank you,

Thanks so much for posting the grave markers for this cemetery, John. Its location was explained to me about 25-years ago as being in an off-the-road rural location so your pictures show it exists!
