RE: Stella Kerlin Doty
Stella May Kerlin (Find A Grave Memorial# 15054123) was married twice; her two husbands were brothers.

1. She married Jesse William Doty on 25 Jan 1898.
They had 2 sons; Orville & Virgil
Jesse Doty died 29 Dec 1911
2. Stella married her brother-in-law Lewis T Doty on 2 Dec 1915
No children born to this marriage.

I assume she is buried with 1st husband because he is the natural father of her children.

Your question actually solved a riddle for me. I had her 2nd husband's name as Denis T Doty, but could find no other information on this name. Apparently someone transcribing a hand-written marriage index changed "Lewis" to "Denis"; I guess I can see how that could happen. So I have deleted "Denis" and re-attached Stella to "Lewis", and updated the relevant pages on Find-A-Grave.

Maye & Joseph Frye - Cemetery Restoration
Hi Cousin!

Kudos to you for your efforts to restore the cemetery. No small task! I am interested in working with a local historical society to restore and preserve 2 very ancient cemeteries. What are the first few steps I should take? Any other advice welcome.

Blessings to you!

Robert Steen
Memorial 44837243 for John Steen
I'm looking for a John W Steen husband of Drucilla Hendrick Steen buried in the same cemetery. Your memorial has no birth or death dates but could it be her husband? Is it located next to her grave? Her memorial is 25123343.

Maye & Joseph Fry
Thank you so very, very much for posting the photos of these very fine and much loved relatives. Maye is my 5th cousin via her mother (the Shields line).

While headstone photos are greatly appreciated and valued, I treasure each personal portrait posted to Find A Grave. These images make our family research so much more rich and warm.

Many, many thanks.

John Steen #44837243
I'm looking for the date of death for my 1st cousin 3X removed John Whitson Steen. He was born 7 FEB 1840 but we have no records of his death. He was married to Drucilla (Hedrick) Steen and she is buried in the same cemetery as your John Steen with unknown birth and death. Would it be possible to get a picture of the gravestone of this John Steen? If not legible or doesn't have information perhaps see if it is in the same area of the cemetery as Drucilla (#25123343) and least then we would have some information.

Greatly appreciate your help.

RE: Pictures
My Hamilton's started out in Virginia, migrated to
Mercer County Kentucky, then north to Johnson
County, Indiana.
I didn't see your Hamilton's in any of my papers.

You are most welcome to the photos.

Thank you - I believe my original photo request stated that she was buried with her 2nd husband but thanks for the "heads up". I remember my Great Aunt Flossie very well - she was my Grandpa's sister.

Grave marker
For Abram Lytle. Find A Grave Memorial# 24280684
Do you have another photo of this grave marker? The bottom part of it is cut off. It looks like it shows his age. 18 yrs old
Or would it be possible to photograph it again?
I show his age as 18 yrs old, being born in 1839.
the person that has his memorial, says he was 22d old. when he died.

RE: Henry and Susan Love Tuter
Hello Lorraine;

In over 20 years I searched for Henry Tuter, and in talking to several persons that have been looking for Henry longer than I have, no trace of Henry or Susan's burial place or time of death that I have knownledge of, the only census that has been found with Henry, Susan and three sons,Pickard, Ballard and Benjamin is the 1850 Virginia with the mis-spelled last name of "Chuter", I have a copy of the census if you want me to send to you, sorry I don't have a clue where Henry & Susan are buried, but all evidence that I have found points them being buried in Virginia, If you want more of the information I have my email is,
will be happy to share and exchange information with you and your granddaughter.

Most Sincerely
Bev Baldwin

William Barbee Orr
William Orr died 26 April 1876 in Tippecanoe county, Indiana. His wife, Priscilla Orr, died 18 Dec 1871; daughter, Evaretta, died 8 Oct 1868.
Priscilla and Evaretta are buried in Dayton Cemetery (found on Find A Grave) but I cannot find any thing for William Barbee Orr. Could he be buried with wife and daughter, and just not listed?
Thank you for any help you can offer.

Ann Whitehead
You posted a photo on Find A Grave for Esther Whitehead McCarty. I am looking for a photo of her sister's tombstone and was wondering if you might have it in your collection. I have requested the photo from Find A Grave but no takers yet. Would you see if you have a photo for Ann Whitehead. I have her listed as born in 1820 but we are not sure and having a photo of the tombstone sure would be of help. If not would you have any other hints of who I could contact? Thanks.

RE: McClure/Swick Cemetery
Opps, I wrote before checking! I am just over involved with this cemetery as it is right across the road from where my grfather farmer....and I spent lots of time there when I was young...then the mine bought it all up and the home place is now gone.
I realize that just anybody can't go into the cemeteries and do restoration work, that's a good thing. But we have so many here in Knox Co, IN that probably need more than McClure/Swick. We have one that was vandalized a few years back and NOTHING has been done with it. I need to check you :-) out more and see how you decide which ones you work on. Thanks for the answer and have a Happy Easter!
