RE: Re: Askins Cemetery
Wow! I just acquired some pix of Daisy as a young woman! My mother, Noah's youngest daughter, just passed away and I have all of her old family pictures. Some of WC Askins and some of Daisy when she visited Wyoming to see Noah. I'd be happy to scan and send them along to you.

The cemetery is an adventure. I visited there two years ago and finally had to resort to stopping at one of the houses on Askins Road to ask if they knew of the cemetery. This incredibly nice man got on his ATV and showed me the way! His name eludes me at the moment, but he was in his 70's and knew of the Askins family.

Let me know how you fare!

Best wishes

RE: Askins Cemetery
Hi LT - sorry for the delay in responding. I do have a map to Askins Family Cemetery that I've created on google earth and I'd be happy to e-mail it to you.

Just some quick directions: From Fordsville take 629 East (sometime called Old Askins Road) about 3.5 miles east to the intersection with Tickridge Road.
Bear Left to stay on Askins Road
The Road passes some houses and comes to a "Y"
Stay left on the Y,
You'll come to a ratty looking farmouse on the left side of the road - bear right behind a fence on the right side of the road (opposite the farmhouse) and follow a primitive track up the hill past the remains of a barn,
Bear right through some cleared areas. Cemetery is at the far end of the clear area at the tree line (hard to see, overgrown with weeds, some fallen trees). When I was there 2 years ago, it had the remains of a chain link fence and gate.

Happy to know a cousin. My Grandfather was Noah Askins, WC's youngest son. I have a few pictures of W.C. and his wife MaryAnn Mershon I'd be happy to share.

Best Wishes

RE: Veterans in Summit Cemetery
Charles Wilhelm may have been meant to read Carneal Wilhelm, but I can't remember if he's buried there or at Fairfield on Meeting Creek road. I can't find a military record for him other than a draft registration, but if he is a veteran it would be for WWI.

I've seen the unreadable stone you mention, I haven't been able to read it either. There are transcriptions in the Hardin County library taken around 1981. Its been useful a couple of times on broken stones.

Directly behind the Church is W. B. Nichols who was a Civil War Veteran in the same company as Carracticus Nichols, who was his cousin. W. B. was a brother to Louisa Richardson and Matilda Richardson.
