Bio and Links
Bio Photo Happily unattached, traveling nurse anesthetist with a passion for genealogy, outdoors, and photography. I enjoy recording and sharing cemeteries I find in my travels with people on FAG. I am not related to most of my memorials; please let me know if I can transfer a relative of yours to you. I enjoy doing photo requests and try to take a few extra pictures while I am there. I try to prepare the stone for a nice picture but don't always have my tools with me (the airlines frown on gardening tools in luggage!) to trim grass, wash bird droppings, etc. Please let me know if I've made some typos and I will correct ASAP. Also, please let me know if you get a better photo and I will delete mine. I'll be always grateful to one of my high school English teachers, Marjory Sharp, Find A Grave Memorial# 117584719, for assigning a four generation pedigree chart and to my great grandmother, Eva Alta Jackson Yeokum, Find A Grave Memorial #20165966, who lived next door and helped me fill it out the night before it was due!

January 2012 - I am working to "link" my memorials. Links weren't around when I started here, so I'm having to do some serious backtracking! Thanks to everyone that sends additional information for the memorials--I get 10-20 emails a week--please be patient as I work on getting all this added, too.

Locust Grove UMC Cemetery
First, thank you for all the work you've done on our cemetery...and the others. Locust Grove UMC is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year as the oldest continuous congregation in Boone County, so I'm doing a lot of searching in the cemetery. I noticed the questions about the Cherokee designation. That's not intended to be the name of the cemetery, but the local Cherokee Tribe made the designation due to a number of their people being buried there. Now that it has come up, we don't have a name sign for the cemetery. . .another anniversary year project, I think.

Kathy,

I think it would be more effective, if you ask them to exchange the Cherokee sign with the Methodist Church sign.


Yes, it is one of my ancestors.

Thank you.

Thomas Denton Elder Sr.

I'm wondering why you posted a picture of a sign saying Cherokee burial grounds?

This was supposed to be a Methodist cemetery. What can you tell me.

Thanks.

RE: memorial # 32632439
Kathy, Alma Ruth Margrave was the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Margrave born in Arkansas in 1894 and Eliza Wood/Margrave. My Margrave ancestors were from TN, AR, AZ, and CA. Thomas's father was Samuel Margrave born in TN, Samuel's father was Levi Margrave born in TN. Let me know if we have a connection.

Odis J. Miller, Find a Grave memorial 65270112
Hi Kathy,

Back in 2011 you posted an obituary for Odis Miller. Unfortunately, the name of the newspaper, page and column number weren't included.

Any chance you still have this information? Without it, the obit and source can't be properly documented or verified.

Many thanks for your contributions to Find A Grave!

Hi Kathy,

Alma Ruth Margrave was part of our Margrave family ancestry. I am wondering how you are related to the Margrave family. Alma Ruth's father T.J. Margrave was my husbands uncle.
