Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Rockcastle County Ky.I have always been interested in Cemeteries.I find it very peaceful roaming through them wondering about the people buried there.I have made some interesting discoveries doing this.If anyone finds any errors I have made please feel free to let me know and I will be more than happy to correct them.If possible. Here is a couple of poems I came across that I would love to share.


Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone


Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Amy Denise Thompson-Ottawa Cemetery
I would appreciated it, if you would transfer her Memorial to me. I am her Aunt.
Although, the obituary reads Amie Denise Thompson-Benge, she was not legally, or ever Amie Benge. Her mother remarried and her mother's name was Benge. I'm not sure if that was an error on part of paper or her mother's idea. The triple stone at the cemetery is for her mother and her present husband, and Amie Thompson.

I've submitted a change for this memorial. Whoever did the parent links has them reversed.

Delbert Shepherd
Wondered if you might be related as he was my great uncle. I am not able to locate either of his 2 wife's Ester and Cora Shepherd. That's all I know. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you for your work.

Melissa Johnson Memorial
I transferred this memorial to you. Sorry that it took me a couple days. I had to look for it and then forgot until I looked back a few minutes ago. Your memorials have helped me a lot in connecting family members in Rockcastle Co. You do a great job!!! Just let me know if I have any other relatives and I will be happy to transfer.

Margaret, you have Tony & Pernie Shearer buried in the Philadelphia Baptist Church Cemetery. According to an obituary that I was reading from McKnight Funeral Home in Crab Orchard today they are alive and living in that area.
