Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started taken pictures of old cemeteries around Bremen, KY in 2001, and I just found "Find A Grave" so I will match grave pictures the best as I can. Now I just have to remember what I did with them all.
I have be working on the Whitmer family for past 10 years. Along with Hope, Jones, Noffsinger, Scott, Vincent, Short, Hendricks, Wilkins, Coffman, Woodburn, Poage/Pogue, Chandler, Galloway and others. Have some 85,000 people in my database.
I have posted grave pictures in the Whitmer Cemetery from 2003 and the Short Cemetery from 2001, both Cemeteries are in Muhlenberg Co., KY.

Please let me know if i can help in anyway with your Ancestry researsh.

RE: Martha Jane Durham

Thank you so much for the transfer of my 3rd great-grandmother's memorial. I accidentally found her marker while photographing in the Bremen area--what a surprise!

Thanks again for all of your hard work, kindness, and generosity. D.

Thank you
Dear Mr.Hope. Like many of the others on this site I feel the information you have provided is such a joy! I have found so much information from you and your photos of headstones, and note. This is/was a tremendous effort. I find getting tidbits of information makes searching all the more pleasurable.
My family branch are Rhoades (with many spellings) however your site includes: Noffsinger Coffman which played a significant role by marriage into my family. I never would have guessed I had so many cousins!
Thank you for your good work!

Thank you so much for the transfer of the Donohoo's, it is not even Christmas and I feel like Santa just come to see me. I will take good care of them and treasure them. You are just to good. It is people like you that makes Find a grave worth while.
Blessings to you

RE: Donohoo
Thank You from the very bottom of my heart for the transfers of the Donohoo Family. I know how hard it is to walk the cemeteries to photograph the stones, even though we love every minute of it. Then to transfer them so unselfishly shows where your heart is. Again Thank You for all you do in preserving our past for the future generations and Find A Grave.

RE: Isaac Donohoo
I would be honored to have him. I figured the way you had him linked, maybe you might be related also. I have been doing Mt Pisgah now and have just finished putting some on Bethlehem, also Gish, in Muhlenberg Co. If I have any you need, please feel free to ask for a transfer. I am now in this for the numbers, I want to help people connect with family.

The information you have for Adren Jenkins is incorrect. This was my grandfather. His name was Adren/Adrian Sherman Jenkins. His parents were James Lee Jenkins & Nancy Jane Jenkins. My grandmother Sallie Hope Jenkins was the daughter of Squire Hendricks Hope & Mary Catherine Jenkins.
