Bio Photo Hi,

I am a retired veteran and genealogist. I work on Fort Knox so I have opportunities to visit some cemeteries on post and in Hardin County, KY.

If you would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please let me know by using the Edit tab and sending me a note.

I decided to make a virtual cemetery of my teachers and then found out I could not remember who they were - ah, it was so long ago.

I take the time to go to the cemeteries, take and post headstone pictures so family researchers can find their ancestors, so if you use my photographs and post them on any for-profit web sites (ex,, etc), I would appreciate it if you give me credit.

Dora C Hutchinson Davis
Thank you so very much for taking the photo. It turned out really good.
You didn't by chance find anything on Ina Pearl Hutchison ? She is supposed to be buried in the same cemetery.
Thanks again for a great treasure.

David McMullen
Robert Louis Thomas (1943-2006)
Hello! My name is David McMullen. I am looking into my family history, and I have a lot of family from Hardin, Kentucky, namely the Hart family. Right now, I am looking into the line of Nellie F. Hart (1920-1997), and her husband, Louis Mitchell Thomas (1918-1979). I have found information for one son of theirs, Robert Louis Thomas (1943-2006), but my search has stopped there. I was curious to know if you have any information relating to Nellie and Louis' children, or Robert's spouse(s) and children. Thank you!

Cemetery Question
James, do you know if there are actually two cemeteries in Hardin County with the names Mount Zion Baptist Church Cemetery and Mount Zion Cemetery? Find A Grave shows both, with the church cemetery being more than 10 times larger in terms of numbers of graves. Both have only a "Hardin County" address but I can find verifiable information only for the church cemetery.

I became curious when I found memorials 67395940 and 66470180, which appear to be for the same person but have a little different information. Since you have taken & posted photos, I believe you memorial is most correct, and I've submitted and edit to add his parents and siblings references.
