|Bio and Links|
My mother had done some family research many years ago. I found it interesting, especially since the earliest ancestors she found came to America when the land was still British colonies. At least two of them served in the American Revolutionary War. |
When Mom passed away at the age of 64 in 1994, I felt like I had lost a link to my family's past. I have been doing genealogy research off and on since then. It is frustrating at times, but very gratifying much more often.
I now live in Lexington, Kentucky. However I am not originally from here and have no relatives here that I know of, living or dead. So for now I am happy to head on down to the cemetery and help others with their research.
The Find A Grave website is great. Some people find it morbid to look at gravesites, but I look at each page as a memorial to a real person who is no longer with us on earth. (And the information is FREE.)
Here's to all of our absent friends!

|I am on to you||wilson's|
Thank you so much
|Karen Kanatzar||Austin and Jean|
Thank you so much for the picture. I'm just sorry that after 7 years, there is still no marker on my brother and sister-in-law's grave. I also live in Lexington and am originally from out of state. Except for my parents and brother, all my family was in Ohio and Pennsylvania. I've been working on my family history since about 1990. Thanks again, Karen

I was wondering if there an office at this cemetery which would take answer questions about these older graves?
In Section G-1, Lot 117, Part S 1/2 N Lot
grave 1 Fanny M. Yauch d: 1922
grave 2 Thomas (4) d:1891
grave 3 Lulu Yauch Caywood his sister d:1922
grave 1 and 3 died within two weeks of each other at the same home
I have another Thomas Yauch buried 8/4/1927 same cemetery
Sec 36 Lob B Grave 53 who I hope is the husband and father of the above.

I know about that cemetery... My sisters and I visited it in 2009. I climbed the wall and took photos of most of the stones we were interested in. We thought she was there but never found her...the place is in bad repair and there were some stones down and we could not lift them. Also there were a lot of weeds including poison ivy. Maybe we should have visited in the winter. It is on private property. I saw her listed at the Lexington site, so was hoping that was where she was.I think you are right that she is at Downing-Roberts.RIP
Thanks again for all your help.
