Galon Jones
Hello! You had requested a photo of Galon Jones. I was the one who tried to find him in Sunny Slope with no luck. I went to McCracken County Public Library and looked up Sunny Slope in there books. It shows a Galon Earl Jones buried at Sunny Slope. Does that sound right for his middle name? I did some research with that name and found that a Galon Earl Jones was married to a Treva Tyler (daughter of John and Celia Tyler buried at Sunny Slope). They had a daughter together named Eleanor. Does this sound right or ringing a bell? Treva is buried at Roselawn Cemetery in Bardwell, KY.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=jones&GSfn=treva&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=19&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=89988699&df=all&

I did some more research and found a death certificate for a Galon Earl Jones. Shows father as a James Jones. I can't really make out the mother's name, but looks like Nina Nonnie. It says he is also buried at Roselawn Cemetery. I found this on ancestry.com, so I don't know if I can link you the webpage and you view it without a subscription, but I could possibly save it and email it to you if you want to check it out.

I am also seeing a 1920 census with a Galon and Treva Jones living with two children, Nina May and Fred. Like I said on your request, there is a Fred Jones buried at Sunny Slope.

Hope this helps!

Glad to help!

At first, I just took photos of specific gravestones that people requested and were at cemeteries close by to where I lived. (Lists of those come from the button 'Request a Photo' option on each memorial. Then I started taking photos of the stones around the requested memorial, because I figured if I was there I might as well, and I found it fun to do.

I 'graduated' to photographing whole cemeteries, or sections of cemeteries. That really started because I started to realize there were 'hidden' ancestors and relatives in these cemeteries that I didn't know about, but once I started searching I saw the connections between families. I haven't stopped finding that fun! To me, it's like a big puzzle and I get to work on it whenever I want.

I also found that I could document the cemetery by taking the photographs. Now, about half the photos I take have memorials made but the other half have no memorial, so I'm adding to the knowledge of burials in the cemetery as I go.

I think it's wonderful that you'd like to contribute. Taking photos would be helpful no matter which way you choose to do it. Any photos are a help, but especially the old ones and the broken and cracked ones. Those are most vulnerable to disappering or becoming unreadable. Do what you like and have fun with. Of course, as more people have started contributing in that way you may find that a photo you take is a duplicate. If my duplicate is more clear or in some way contributes to the memorial, I'll add my photo to the original. If it doesn't add anything, I just trash it and move on.

Hope that helps!

RE: Harold & Kenneth Gordon
I'm glad to send them to you. I'm sorry, though, I don't know the family.

Hi Shelley,

I received your message. Welcome to Find a Grave!
It's really a great resource and I hope you find good information, as I have.

I can't link the brothers without knowing the parents. If you know who they are, you can enter the parents on each person's memorial and that will automatically list them as siblings from the parent's page. I'm transferring these memorials to your care.

If I have made any other memorials for your family, please let me know.

Laura
