Barb's Family Tree


The memories of all our yesterdays
live in the corners of my heart,
A time spent not so long ago,
where you will forever be a part.

I tell everyone I meet how very proud I am of you,
And how Hard it was to let you go
even though I knew you'd want me to.

But now somewhere, someone is smiling
because of the joy that you could bring,
And I know after listening more closely,
it's the song of unselfishness when I hear a bird sing.

And even though you can no longer be with me,
I still feel that you are there.
Perhaps, that's the bond that goes unbroken
when a love is truly shared.

So, I'll only say farewell because in good-byes I don't believe,
For I know that time will come again
when you'll be holding hands with me.

Lorrie Neal - 2003

My sweet George was even giving after death, he gave the gift of Life to others.

I notice that this John (my 3rd great grandfather) shows a middle of H. None of our family documents show a middle initial, including his will and other court documents. Do you have documentation of his middle initial "H"? If not, would you mind editing his name and remove the middle initial?

(Yes, I have H for my middle initial)

Thank You!
Hello, Barbara, I thank you for message. Debbie placed Isaac in a completely incorrect location, as he is not buried in Manila. He and his wife are definitely buried in the Johnson County Memorial Cemetery alongside several other family members. The cemetery at Manila no longer exists. The memorial I've made for Isaac is in the correct location.

Hi Barbara,

My Name is Ashley Burroughs. I ran across your name looking at my grandmother Zatha's page.
My Aunt Donna (her daughter) just passed a few days ago, but not much is known about Kenneth and Zatha's relatives.

I have always wanted to know more, so you if you're ever up for chatting, please let me know :)

Memorial Sarah Wells Richmond

Find A Grave Memorial# 139136627

On June 5,2017 I visited my great grandmothers grave as well as others and took pictures for Find A Grave Site at Brick Union Cemetery in Lloyd,Kentucky and I took a picture of Sarah Wells Richmond's Grave Stone while was there. I did not see a memorial for her at this grave yard on website so I created one for her. I was researching her family and came across your memorial an seen you have her listed there at Smith Cemetery. She definetly has a grave stone located at Brick Union in LLoyd,Kentucky could there be a mistake on where she listed buried cause I have come across a few already since been doing grave memorials that funeral homes and state death certificates have been wrong due to misunderstanding when filling out paper work.
