Lemon Hill Cemetery
I've returned from my week long trip to Oklahoma to document Jackson Purchase of Kentucky Confederates that moved to Oklahoma. Did not get out to Lemon Hill Cemetery in Bryan County, but while at Tishomingo to photograph another's grave site was given the telephone number to the Bryan County Genealogy Library at Calera. Called it from there and the lady did not know who to talk to for permission or where exactly it was. I would still like to locate this cemetery and photograph the headstone of William James O'Donley. If you look at the Find A Grave page for O'Donley Cemetery in Ballard County, Kentucky you will notice that I have added some photographs of some of their headstones. If possible I would like to come back some time this winter and photograph his headstone, and hopefully by then I can come up with a contact for a cemetery in Roger Mills County which is way off the road.

Do you have a contact for Lemon Hill Cemetery? I am coming to Oklahoma and plan to spend most of the week trying to locate Kentucky veterans buried in the State, and one is at Lemon Hill Cemetery.

RE: Rosia Lee Cox Stinnett
Don; I do not have any additional information on Rosia Lee Cox's family members. My wife descends from Samuel Edward Stinnett and his first wife, Lillian Lee McNabb. After Lillian died, he married Rosia. I have a couple of photos I think of them together, but I do not know of her family members.

Hi Don, All the information is correct. I didn't know about the Ellen,for Ann Elizabeth Nelson Morrison. She was the child of Thomas nelson and Mahala Ann Lyon. They married Aug. 24, 1835.My great grandmother was born in 1849. Didn't know the marriage date. Thank you.My grandmother was Caroline Isabelle Morrison. She married John Joseph Ramon. My mother was Violet Thersia Ramon. I have all this on find a grave.
The date I got for Josh A. Nelson born 1852 from a page written from The Bladwin County Heritage book. The site I got it from was:
Thank you for correcting me on John Nelson's place of buriel.I figured he was buried the same place of his parents, which they say is now a swamp.I will have to go through a ton of articles on the Nelsons to find the place of burie.

RE: Thank you for Willis Andrew Trout
You are very welcome. Glad I could help. When I first spotted the stone, all I could see were Trout and the numbers 12 and 15..I was very happy that when I pulled the grass back it turned out to be the one that you needed.

Don, I've uploaded some information I found pertaining to the Wells family of Ottawa County. Perhaps this might help you in your research.

Looks like Blanch and her sister died from Diphtheria.

It was my pleasure Don. I also photographed adjacent WELLS graves that I also posted to FindaGrave:

Carrie E. Dell WELLS
George M. WELLS (already had a posted photo)
WELLS Monument (sits adjacent George)
Irene E. WELLS, dau. Roswell & Lillian WELLS

and the Eastmanville United Reformed Church, erected in 1871.

The Eastmanville Cemetery sits behind the Church. I've passed this church multiple times and would never have thought there'd be a cemetery sitting behind it. It's hidden by woodland growth.

William and Anna Lemay

I spent several hours walking through the New Garden Cemetery, near Elkmont, Alabama, looking for the graves of William and Anna Lemay. Unfortunately, my search was unsuccessful.

The cemetery is bisected by a road. The area on the west side of the road is known as the "Old New Garden Cemetery" and contains the oldest graves in the entire cemetery which includes those from the early to mid-late 1800's. This part of the cemetery is very overgrown, and the inscriptions on most of the grave stones are illegible or the stones have been destroyed by vandalism or the ravages of time.

After spending over 2-1/2 hours in my own unsuccessful search, I happened upon and talked with two cemetery care-takers, and neither of them remembered ever seeing the names William and Anna Lemay among the headstones. However, both said it was likely, considering the dates of death, 1855 and 1853, that if they are buried in the New Garden Cemetery, it would be in the "Old" Section.

I would be glad to go back to the cemetery in the late fall or winter when the overgrowth has died back and the threat from snakes is non-existent and look again. Sorry.

I did take photos of the "Old New Garden Cemetery" as well as the historical marker which reveals some interesting facts about the cemetery's origins. I would be glad to share those with you if you'd like.

Your photos on find-a-grave
Hello Don,
I am currently researching the Norris/Colvin/Strickland families (ie: James Andrew Colvin and Mary Ann Elizabeth Strickland- Colvin) and just came upon the photo you provided on find-a-grave site. I would very much like to speak to you about this family privately via e-mail when you have the spare time and are willing. Thank You.

RE: Woody & Alice LeMay
Hi Don!

There was nothing on the other side of the stone. Also, I thought it was odd because it was in the middle of several Walker family headstones.

The cemetery had very old headstones along with new grave sites. It is in the middle of nowhere but very well maintained. I took several pictures. I can email them to you if you are interested.

Have a great day!

RE: The Hope Family
Hi Don,

You are welcome. I have some Great Grand parents and lots of other distant family at Hope Cemetery. (Derhammer and Campbell I seen At least 2 other Hope headstones there, 1. Edward Hope 1814-1890 and wife Amelia 1825-1901 2. A Robert A and Betty S Hope who appear to possibly be still living. It looks to be a fairly new stone which shows both born in 1919 no death dates inscribed.
