Bio and Links
I've been hearing family history stories since I was little: stories about the Reconstruction South or about an older, agrarian Lexington. Then it was my turn when family papers, charts, photos and bibles came up the road to my care. Thanks to the availabilty of the internet and a first-rate local library, my interest rapidly got away from ancestral genealogy and has focused on the descendents of Virginians who pioneered early Fayette County and established farms there. When you take long-lived ancestors who had large families you get a rapidly branching tree. It's addictive.
Now I've sidelined a bit with Find-a-Grave. I am focusing on whole lot plans in the cemeteries I am working on and tryng to figure out not just who is located in a given lot but what they had in common. Some will have no headstone or a time-eroded one but be listed in cemetery records - a marvelous jigsaw puzzle.

RE: Donald Scanson grave marker
You're welcome. Before I ran over to Oakhurst I checked the records for other family members without photos. Barbara Ann was on my list, but I could not find a marker for her. I did find Richard T, Thomas A, Edith N, and Ruth Barbara.

RE: Shropshire photos
Your welcome. There was also a small white marker that said j.c. & S.K. Shropshire. Nothing more. I checked all the Shropshire's on the cemetery data sat at and section P lot 109 is a "Sallie, infant of Shropshire" and buried 5/26/1891 but no J.C....l twins?? Don't know
Let me know if you want me to email it to you. If you call the cemetery they can look it up on the written records & most likely give more info

RE: Pace photos
Aw, shucks, mamm. It was nothing.

And they are next door to a family that I might be related to.

Re: Virginia Finnell
I have added the information for Virginia Finnell 114702022 as requested. I wonder if Virginia and her husband are also the founders of Fennell's Tack Shop which has been in operation at the Red Mile since 1909. They do spell the name with an E instead of an I.
