Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a married mom of 5. I'm originally from Detroit, Michigan. We moved from NC to Ohio in 2005. I love History and Genealogy. I enjoy checking out old cemeteries and history reenactments. I believe every generation has a story to tell. Sometimes it's up to later generations to tell the stories of the generations before us. No one deserves to be forgotten. I hope to go to Gettysburg soon. I have a special place in my heart for our Veterans and those that left this world too soon. If you need to find a grave in my area, please let me know.

Nancy Brown
Brown Cemetery
Hi, Kristine. I am a descendant of David Brown. I believe he was my gg grandfather. His grandson Marcum was my grandfather. My father was Sherman Brown (1922-1984). We are heading down to the Prestonsburg area this weekend and I would love to know where the cemetery is located that contains the memorial for David Brown. Can you shed any light on that for me?

Thank you,
Nancy Brown

RE: John and Lena Maurer
I think that John was the brother of my second great grandfather, Charles/Karl. Lena's name was in a book with birthdates owned by my great grandmother, so I figured they were related. Since you are a direct descendant, it seems appropriate to transfer management to you. If you don't want them, then send them back. Shelly

Leck Risner
Thank you for the photo of the grave stone of Leck Riser ... I'm wondering if you'd grant me permission to use your photo on my file. I place credit in the description of the photo and I have no interest in using the photo for anything other than genealogical purposes.

Thanks so much for your consideration.

I'm not sure about that. I know that gravesite is my great great grandfather's. He is the father of gib brown of abbot creek Floyd county Kentucky. Gib is father to my grandfather estil brown from left fork abbot creek bonanza Floyd county Kentucky. Estil is buried in Preston cemetery Alger Ohio Hardin county.

David K Brown
Hello Kristine,

My Uncle Sherman Brown (1922-1984) was a great-grandson of David Brown and Izana Pitts.

I am trying to help his kids (my cousins) trace the family back further.
Someone in the family had determined that David's parents were Berry and Francis Brown. I could not find evidence of this and to the contrary, the David listed on the census rolls as son of Berry has a birth date that does not correlate with David Brown husband of Izana.

Would you have an information we could use? There is a family reunion the end of August with the Brown's living in the Toledo, OH area and some are coming from out of state as well.

RE: Harry Bykowski Smith
Unfortunately I did not have a map indicating the sections in the cemetery. I do remember that it was in a section on the north side of the highway and it was in the first 5 or 6 rows from the left.

Thanks KTB-Am resident of Crawford Co Illinois where the Horace Published the Crawford Bulletin and we had nearly 100 boys in Co F of the 5th Il Cav. Thought the "Boys from the Praire-History of the 5th Illinois Cavalry by Rhonda Kohl treated the Major very well.

RE: Major Mumford
That was very kind of you, thank you.
Not a family member but a dear elderly friend of mine, Mary Mumford, married into the line. Mr. Ziegler and I have the same Ziegler relatives buried at Pioneer so we joined forces in trying to get everyone buried there remembered. A dozen or so souls went to Grove Cem. but... most of the others remain, covered with extra dirt and forgotten. The Pioneer cemetery is now a small Park, no one knows they are actually playing on long forgotten soldiers and pioneers burials.
Mr. Ziegler and I are hoping to change that.....

Thank you again for Major Mumford's data-

Thanks and great work
You folks are helping me reach my goals. Pioneer cemetery in Kenton Ohio has those tombstones stacked up. I would really like to know what the seven lower tombstones say My great uncles grave is lost in the cemetery his could be in the pile.
His name is the same as mine
thanks John Ziegler
