Bio and Links
Bio Photo In September of 2013, I became semi-retired and moved from Clarksville Tenn., back to my home town of Campbellsville Ky., (Taylor County). Along with my mother, who has spent over 40 years researching family genealogy ... we continue to research her side of the family (Vaughn, Beams, Pierce, Handley, McColgan, Gaddie, Gumm, Hedgespeth ... to name a few) and my Dad's family (Graves, Burdette, Collins, Lee, Sympson ... and more), most of which are in Taylor, Green and Marion counties in Kentucky. I'm also VERY interested in the Hourigan and Johnston families (mostly Marion County) into which my maternal grandmother's sisters married. Also interested in Shively and Polk family research. Not only am I satisfying my own interest, I'm dedicated to LINKING my family together on Find-a-Grave to make it easier for future generations to connect their family dots. I'm even trying to link the families of close family friends if others haven't already taken up the task. I always check Find-a-Grave before going to a cemetery and try to look for and photograph markers that have been requested there. Even some that haven't been requested. I often go to cemeteries just for that purpose. I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (or closer family members than myself) who are equally passionate about updating family information.

In addition, I've been leading the way in an attempt to clean up the Collins Cemetery and Gaddie Cemetery #3 in Taylor County.

If we can help each other in any way, feel free to contact me. You are also free to use any of my photos. Good luck.

RE: Thanks!
Glad I could help. I only live about 1/3 mile from the cemetery.

RE: Thanks for the photo!
You are welcome Virginia. I have added the photo to Jennie's memorial, but feel free to use it for your needs also. That's why I am out taking share with those who are on this site.
