Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began researching families in 1995 when my grandmother, Nancy Louise (Wilson) Myers, passed away. She had been a member of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution, which started these searches, and this information is required for admission. She encouraged all four of her granddaughters to enter and had given each of us copies of her certificate, the application papers, as well as, all the corresponding research. Now, I have become addicted to this little hobby and cannot stop. I do this in her memory, "Family will always be the most important part of your life."
I also dedicate this page, and my genealogy work, to my younger sister, Kimberly Ann Johnson, who passed away April 1, 2003. She was only 45 yrs of age and left two sons, one daughter and husband along with all of her immediate family. We will miss her always.

RE: Carter Cemetery
Thanks for the kind words, but for the record, I'm actually Ohio born. My mother is from Morgan Co.. Through the years though, I've spent a lot of time in that region. I've seen your tree on Ancestry and we share more than a few common ancestors, mainly in the Nickell, Gibbs, and Hopkins lines.

Carter cemetery is located on the Old Grassy Church grounds, which was moved to it's present location near Mize, KY after the Civil War. Goodwin Chapel however was located about mile west, at or near the junction of 460 and 705, at the point commonly known as Grassy Creek. As you probably already know, Grassy Creek, Morgan Co. can be found on google maps. It was a small pioneer village establish around 1818 with the help of my great-grandfather, John Pieratt, and some of the original inhabitants included members of Goodwin, Cecil, and Jackson families. Goodwin Chapel was built about the same time to serve this community, which it did up until the 1880's before it was torn down. Grassy never made it as a town, ending up just a small cross-roads hub with a store and post office. As you probably know too, this region of Morgan Co. is known as Grassy Creek Magisterial District, but it did have it's name charged briefly to Chapel District in the early 1900's, a name obviously coming from the church.

I've seen Goodwin Chapel mention in many family and county histories. I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but I've never heard of it having a cemetery. Also, I have a Morgan County Cemetery Records book that covers most of the oldest graves in Morgan, as well cemetery descriptions and locations and unfortunately, its not mention in it either. I could be wrong, but I don't believe it had one; not all the churches did. Do you have a source that it says it had one?

If you are looking for the burial location for John Daye (1760-1837), then I think maybe your looking to far North, unless you have a record showing he ended up in Grassy Creek District. Just going by a quick glance of his census records, and family histories, I bet he would be buried in the southern part of Morgan, in Caney District or River District, around the Wolfe county border. I check the cemetery book for you, but sadly, he isn't listed. I did noticed however that a few of his line are buried around Caney area.

Well, hope this helps. If I can help any further, feel free to ask.

John Daye 22262691

If you look at Joseph Carter III or his daughter Judith Gevedon (172216277) you will see that there is a history by J. M. Gevedon that was published in the Licking Valley Courier in 1953 which in effect states that what was known as the Goodwin's chapel burial ground is now Carter cemetery #110 (

Ms. Roberts,
I am interested in any information you may have regarding the supposed Goodwin's Chapel burial ground. (See the memorial which you created for John Daye). My ancestor Joseph Carter III was, according to a June 11, 1953 article in the Licking Valley Courier also buried there. But the location where the local DAR chapter placed the veterans headstone which they were granted is at 37.52N, 83.22W (as opposed to 83.20W)

It is also highly questionable as to whether my ancestor was buried in either of those locations, or even in Morgan County at all. Any information you may have regarding Goodwin's Chapel, etc. will be greatly appreciated.

Photo For George Myers
Babytown Cemetery in Evansville is a very old cemetery and no longer accepts burials as far as I can tell. But I learned from an obituary that Mr. George Myers was cremated, so maybe his ashes are scattered there? Are you family? Can you give me any information why "Babytown" is listed as the burial location?

John Daye Gravesite
Ms. Roberts:
It is a shame that the John Daye grave and the meeting house grounds have been lost to so called progress. I had also thought of contacting the local DAR group about the idea of a roadside memorial for the both. In KY, a roadside memorial can have different text on both sides. It would be possible for one marker to commemorate both John Daye and the Meeting House Burial Grounds. But in KY they cost about $2,500 which must be paid by someone other than the state. I am willing to help a local group raise the money to do that if they take the lead. I am a licensed auctioneer and we could do a fund raising auction if local business owners fell short of making the contributions necessary. It is a process which takes time with both fund raising and state approval but it is a project of actual merit. Please let me know if you take any action on this. And I am assuming that you are probably a DAR member. Is that correct?

Weiner graves
You were kind to go out and find Harry and Annie Weiner's graves in Lincoln Park in 2010...I had the back of the monument translated and I'm wondering if there were flat footstone or pillow stone grave markers for Harry and Annie as the translation does not include their names.
