I appreciate all the work you did in the cemetery at St. Johnís. I did a complete photo survey of the cemetery in 2014 and updated the existing plot map for the parish. I have, and will have edits in Find A Grave to many of the memorials that you created, adding information and linking family members. It would be much appreciated if you could review and approve them.

The book is available on

Christie, I recently added a group to facebook. "The Durbin's (from Sunfish KY)" if you could spread the word for me to any Durbin descendants,that you may know, I would very much appreciate it. It is a site to share pictures and stories of our Durbin ancestors, and connect with long lost relatives. Thank You for all your work that you have one done for findagrave and St. John Catholic cemetery in Sunfish, Edmondson County.
