Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,

I'm a native of Logan County Kentucky and Amateur genealogist and historic site conservationist. Gravestone preservation and repairs are among my interests. Also photography and natural landscapes.

Please if you are a family member of a person I have created a memorial for, simply request me and I'll gladly transfer the memorial with photos. As usual all my photos are copy written so proper requests do apply as per the rules of Find a Grave.

Also PHOTOS: Please assume all my photos are copywriter privileged and ask me for your copy for personal family use only.
No dart boards made from my photos please.

Reclaiming abandoned Graveyards I have experience with. Archeological issues can arise, detail is important from first site to attempting to clean a stone to read it. Document everything.

If ever a question on something call the local historical society before acting.

Remember laws pertaining to visiting a graveyard and land owners property, vary State to state.

For safety sake, before waking onto someones property call upon the land owner before encroaching upon the property to see if it is the grave of a family member. Some land owners are very touchy about people hanging out on there property.

Rural Grave yards are a safety hazard, be careful.
Go with a friend, and a phone with a camera. Documentation.

I now reside in Franklin County, Va.

RE: Nathanial & Sarah Etheridge
ha ha! I meant patience with the dna determination process. It can take a year to start getting thorough results. Glad to help when I can.

RE: Nathanial & Sarah Etheridge
I have forgotten the particulars of your search, but I'll mention the names of the other family members buried under the John & Caroline family umbrella in those lots. They include Watts, Roche, Hewes, and Sanborn that I can remember off hand.

Also, death records are notorious for containing bad info, so beware.

I've had good luck with the Ancestry dna testing and subsequent auto-connecting done thru their system. To get good results you need a public tree, even if it's a skeleton of names and dates only, and patience. Several of my lines have been "proven" by that system and some may have been questioned by a sheer lack of connection. I also found an illegitimate line, but that's another story. :-/

I only made the memorial NOT the relationship links. I'm not responsible for error relationship links made by others and cannot unlink.
