Flan Ward # 111892778
Flan is my g-g-g grandfather. His grand daughter married Peter Baker and thus to me, Robert Baker. Is he too far back or are there other family members so that I can not have his memorial moved to me? Flan was shot a killed in my mother's home town, Russellville.

Thanks, Robert Baker

RE: Antha B. Davenport
You are very welcome. Her marker was very discolored, but in excellent condition. I'm happy I was able to fill your request.

RE: Joseph Mason
Well Good Morning.....

Yes my 3rd Great Grandfather is Joseph Mason. His wife is Jane Henderson. John Henderson Mason, your 4th great grandfather is a brother to Joseph Mason my 3rd Great Grandfather :-)

My 2nd great grandfather another Joseph who married Elinor Burch. Their son great grandfather James Franklin Mason and my grandfather was Thomas Allen Mason.

Have you traced you family tree back to John Mason father of Joseph ....from Virginia

about John Mason
Page 331 Kegley's Virginia Frontier by F.B. Kegley

JOHN MASON father of Joseph Mason and sister Jannet Mason who married Samuel Crawford

The name, John Mason, is associated with many different places on the Southwest frontier. It is found in the eastern part of Old Brunswick, in Bedford and in different parts of the Roanoke Valley. We have learned that John Mason, of the Roanoke, lived on Back Creek where he died and that he had played an active part in the affairs of the community. His will made on October 12, 1760, and proved on August 18, 1761, shows the approximate date of his death. He gave his son, John, 270 acres of land on Mason's Creek, to son James, 150 acres on Back Creek; to son, William, 250 acres on Grassy Hill Branch; to youngest son, Joseph, the home place, 135 acres. Mother, Leah, was to have 25 Pounds (English Pounds) in cash; daughter, Jannet, a natural pacing mare; daughter, Mary, a "dapple gray mare;" and daughter, Margaret, a black mare. The remainder of the estate was to be divided among all. He named William Boyd, of the North Fork of Otter River, and his brother-in-law, James McKeachey, as executors. James McKeachey qualified with sureties, Geo. Robinson, John Miller and James Bane. His appraisement was made in August 1761, by Thos. Tosh, James Bane and Neal McNeal. There were 21 horses (7 mares with colts and a gray stallion), 10 cows and calves, 1 wagon and gears, valued at 10 Pounds, 2 saddles, 2 books, 2 Bibles, and old book, a pair of silver buckles, a parcel of lumber and numerous household articles. (Footnote says Augusta Will Book 3-52 and 165.)

Nice to meet you ...

Wilson-Redd and Young Cemeteries

Mel Doss here again.

I got out and located the two cemeteries you asked about.

The Young Cemetery's Garmin GPS location is N36.85730, W087.80177. The directions I gave you are correct. Very easy to follow. GPS will take you to the cemetery.

Now a surprise! Go out on Find A Grave and you'll find all the grave markers still at the cemetery, your William A Wilson and Cynthis A Wilson are there. This cemetery is in bad shape to say the least. Very nice homes around it but no one looks after these graves. The cemetery picture I posted shows a tall momument. That's your relatives stone. I used chalk to highlight the writing on the stones and make them readable.

Wilson-Redd Cemetery's Garmin GPS location is N36.83456, W087.76810. This is located on Caledonia Road not Old Canton Pike as I stated before. These are the same roads, HWY 272, but they change names at HWY 139 (South Road.) East is Caledonia Road, West is Old Canton Pike. This GPS location will be at a beautiful home. Once there, you'll need to ask them how to get back to the cemetery on their property.

I hope this helps you on your quest.

Feel free to use any of my pictures as you see fit. I'll also transfer them to you if you want them just send me a SAC and I'll get them to you as soon as I can.

P. Mason:

Hi Mel Doss here!

Maybe I can help you with locations!

First, I'd suggest you stop by the the public library and contact Kim Fortner or Pam Metts. They were part of a team that put together a book called Cemeteries of Cadiz and Trigg County, Kentucky. Both will be very helpful!
The library is located on main street very close to the hospital .... very easy to find!

According to their book:

Wilson-Reed Cemetery, page 380,is located by taking HWY 272 (old Canton Pike) to the William Lawrence farm (residence #3155). Follow the farm road past his house to the cemetery.

Young Cemetery, page 384, take Hwy 68 by-pass and watch for a big sign that says ARROWHEAD. Turn on Arrowhead Club Drive. Turn left on Chippewa Ln. Turn left on Commanche Dr. Turn right on Sequoyah Trail. Go to residence #260 which is on the left side of the street. The cemetery is locate in the woods to the right of the house.

Both of these will be very easy to find. If I can I'll try and get out there and give you Garmin GPS locations. No promises here.
