Obid's father Nap.... That is what my grandmother called Napoleon. Nap was the brother of my 2X great Grandfather Francis Marion Mefford.

Hi Ben. My cousin and I have a genealogy blog and would like to use the photo that you took of the grave stones for William and Quintilla OTWELL. May I have your permission to use them? I will include your name as photographer. Thanks in advance.

Obid C. Mefford
Hi Ben, I was told that you were the one that restored Obid's headstone. Below you will see a message that I sent to Paul Annable. He told me that you and your family were the ones that did the restoring. So I will send my thanks to you and your family as well.

Note to Paul:
I just want to say thank you, as a relative and also for all the other's that you have restored. It means so much that someone puts their heart into doing something like that. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Where my parents, brothers, grand and great grand parents are buried it is an old cemetery with stones falling and is so sad. The city mows it occasionally and I go up when I can and trim around all the headstones.
Thanks to you and to all that go out and put their hearts into trying to restore old cemeteries and without volunteers such as yourself some of us would have no idea where any of our loved ones were laid to rest.

Bless you so much

Thank you, Ben for trying to find if William Monson had a marker in Battle Grove Cemetery.
Much appreciation for your effort.

Headstone photos in Frankfort Cemetery
This is another overdue "thank you" for taking all those grave photos of my Owsley & Harper relatives in Frankfort Cemetery. I especially like the extra effort you went to in trying to find a marker for Benjamin Bedford and noting there was none but that he was interred next to his wife.
