A little about me...
Glasgow High School graduate
Western Kentucky University:
Bachelor of Arts Degree
Masters - Folklore
I have always enjoyed oral history at an early age. Wish I had asked more questions now... In 1994 I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, went through surgery and chemo, I was given 3-6 years to live. So after I recovered from the treatments, in 1996 I decided to sell my home of 20 years and go on the road to research my family 1st-hand that were in my family files. I became a "fulltimeRVer" for six years; following the paths of my ancestors was a memorable experience and very humbling at times. I visited so many places I would never have visited otherwise... courthouses, libraries, cemeteries, meeting family and getting to actually stand on family land that my ancestors owned. Well, I am still here, I guess I still have ancestors to find and their stories to tell..... the oral history is out there, I just have to find the descendant that it was passed down to..
In addition to my family lines, I research Allen, Barren, Butler, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe and Warren Counties in KY. (South Central KY)

|K. Miles||RE: Photo request - Katherine Graham Prince|
You are very welcome. I travel to Virginia all the time and have been going to Blandford to research my husbands family buried there and thought I would try to fulfill as many requests as I can each trip. Yours was the only one of 8 that I could find this time.
I also took pictures of the others in that plot for the family and posted those as well.

|Dave Wilkinson||Willis Bybee|
Laura....thanks to your encouragement several years back, we have finally pinpointed and visited the Allee-Hodge cemetery near the intersections of the Barren-Metcalfe-Monroe County borders. We photographed the tombstone of Willis Bybee which is still standing and attempted to add it to your Find-A-Grave memorial. The actual cemetery is located deep in the woods on the southern edge of Piercy Hollow in Metcalfe County. Half a dozen stones remain; the remainder of the cemetery is covered by thick, ground-hugging crepe myrtle vines and multiple depressions marking burials are readily visible. Locals believe multiple Bybees from the mid-19th century, including Neil McCann Bybee and Milly Allee Bybee are also buried there. If I can provide additional information, please just let me know. My thanks for all you do and for your earlier encouragement.

|Claudia Jansen Hartley||Helen Hester Kayrouz|
Thank you for the links to Helen's parents. This has also allowed me to further her family line on my family tree. I appreciate it so much!
Hi Laura! It is definitely a small world because I just noticed that you also have done some research on the Dennison family. My great-grandfather was Noah Dennison. His parents were Marshal and Louisa Dennison. Do you have any other information on siblings of Noah?? Thanks again!
|Kelly Spiegel||McAlisters in Bowling Green|
Hi Laura: Thank you for your informative postings. I will be visiting Isham Henry McAlister's grave in Bowling Green this weekend. His son, James Ray McAlister, was my grandfather. I may have time to visit his notorious brother, Arthur McAlister as well! Kelly McAlister Spiegel
