RE: Jacob Hollingsworth II
No proof other than the Quaker Genealogies and they were super about recording who moved where (GCT=gets a certificate). I noticed that as they moved south of Virginia, the Quakers dispersed more widely, and became less active. Especially when the Civil War was brewing in the 1830s, the Quakers could not abide slavery, so prevalent in the southern states, that many Quaker communities left en masse for Ohio and Indiana when that land opened up. Plus they were farmers and the rich land in the midwest offered more promise for better farming, and more land for their very large families to sprawl onto when they were grown. Indiana, where I grew up, still has Quakers, and a couple of colleges, meeting houses, etc. but they are scarcer and scarcer. The old ways were stringent and most of the Quaker population just morphed into present day Baptists. I am very proud to be of Quaker lineage, they were fine, industrious people.

RE: Lewis-Pitts Cemetery
The Lewis-Pitts Cemetery, on the former Johnny Bays Farm, is near the road from what I have been told. The farm is located 1.5 miles south of Goddard on Morehead Road (32). The entrance to the farm is the farm's driveway called Parker Road which crosses over Sand Lick Creek. If I find more details I'll get back with you.

RE: Lewis-Pitts Cemetery
Hi,
I descend from the James Lewis in the Lewis-Pitts Cemetery. I have gave up my efforts to have someone show me the location and go to the cemetery. The cemetery lies in a small wooded area from what I have been told. To get access to the former Johnny Bays farm property, I would contact his surviving children who live in the Flemingsburg area. I last spoke to one of the sons, who appears to be retired, about having him show me the location of the cemetery. He was hesitant at the time perhaps because of the winter/spring weather. He indicated that the family would likely be putting the land up for sale. I believe the land lies on the east side of Morehead Rd (32), just south of Plummers Landing Road, where Fox Creek crosses under 32. I do not have much information as to the daily life of James Lewis and his family while living in this area. Would be interesting to know.

Thanks,
John

RE: Salem Cemetery
Salem Cemetery is in Walnut Township, Section 13. It lies just south of Foster and east side of Highway DD. The cemetery is laid out north to south with most of the older stones in the north part. When I mass photo'd the cemetery last Nov. 30th, I took pictures of 872 stones, so you won't have difficulty in finding the stones fairly quick going down each row. However, I went from south to north. Wm. & Rose Lee Bell stones were pictures 96-98. I, also, went west side of cemetery to east side while taking most pictures; in other words, doing one row South to North,, then stepping to the right, north to south, etc. I have no idea who has the cemetery book over there for Salem. To walk the cemetery up and down on each row won't take you too long.
