"Betsey" May Keplinger
Find A Grave Memorial# 62425308

I'm wondering if there might be a mistake on this record. You list a husband 38 yrs younger than her: Bird Deaderick Bayless. Could that have been linked to the wrong record?

Also you list her name as Catherine Elizabeth "Betsey" May Keplinger. Where did you find evidence for Catherine? It seems odd. She has a sister named Catherine. I've not run across this before. Do you remember where you got the info. What is the name on the stone?

RE: Bold-Strain Cemetery
All of the photos that I took at the Bold-Strain Cemetery were taken on March 28, 2013. Yes, the Bold-Strain Cemetery is remote. I took notes and photos when I visited the cemetery and I have in my notes that the owner of the land told me that in the 20 years that he has lived in his house that I was only about the 10th person who had ever knocked on his front door. The owner of the land walked us to the cemetery and spent a couple of hours with us locating and documenting some of the tombstones.

I have two ggg-grandfathers and one ggg-grandmother buried in the Bold-Strain Cemetery.

My line: Charles Brookshire (1796-1880) who is buried in Bold Cemetery and his first wife Peggy Rutledge Brookshire (1801-1855) who is buried in Kentucky, Elizabeth Brookshire Tate (1827-1909) who married Jesse Tate (1828-1873), James B. Tate (1858-1889), Edgar Tate (1887-1955), Wendell Tate (1929-1992), and me (1952).

RE: Harrodsburg History books
The Monroe County Historical Society has copies of the "Days of Glory". I know they have one copy of the other book, but I don't know if they have it for sale.

Harrodsburg History books
"Years of Glory" and "Remember When" by Ruth Seeley

I didn't know whether you knew about these books. I loved the stories that she tells about Harrodsburg and its people.

I am sorry but I don't know the wife of John. I think, if he had a wife, she married again after John died. Sorry.
