|Bio and Links|
i am obsessed with genealogy and family history in my old age (i have not worked or gone to school for about a year; got some software and have really thrown myself into this activity). Recently i went to Kentucky for a friend's child's wedding and got a chance to look at places where my mom's Lillard, Bright, Robinson and Berry families, and others, had lived and to find Lillard tombstones in the cemetery in Danville. Beside them i found Gentry tombstones, so i made a record of those, too, since "Gentry" is one of the names on my family tree. It has been very gratifying to search for records for the people who are related to me and to add to the information on findagrave.com. I hope the information may help others who might not otherwise have known where to find family graves or what dates of birth or death went with what family members. The help with photos is so much appreciated, although i did take some photos in pouring rain in Danville. The historical society people at the information office on Constitution Square were so very helpful to me, as was Erica at City Hall. i hope to continue to add to the body of information on findagrave. i live in Cupertino, CA, so help from KY and NC (where my father's family were) is a big deal to me! i am hoping to return to KY and hoping to also do some work in NC and MO looking for family graves there. My parents are buried in Fort Collins, CO, where i grew up, and i have added those, which gave me a good feeling. Thank you to everyone who has helped me.|

One of the wonders of the age, or, The life and times of Rev. Johnson Olive, Wake County, North Carolina
Author : Olive, Johnson, 1816-1885
Published in 1886
Source: Internet Archive
Hi the above book mentions Mark Barker as Johnson Olive's brother in law. Do you know how Mark Barker is his brother in law? I believe Mark to be a close relation to my ancestor Shadrack Barker.

Just wondered if you know about this site? This is a 1877 Jackson County, MO Directory: http://www.historicmapworks.com/Map/US/187734/Directory+3/Jackson+County+1877/Missouri/
|Cheryl White||Lillard family in Mount Hope, Topeka|
Just a note to let you know that I have updated the pages for Thomas, Elsie, and two of their daughters in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, and have sent copies of the pages to the cemetery for their office files.
Also, Thomas's home in the Westboro area of Topeka will be this year's Designer Showhouse, a fundraiser held annually for the ERC (Everywoman's Resource Center --- although the current name used escapes me!) The present owner contacted me a couple of weeks ago, wondering if I had any information on the house. Unfortunately, I didn't. It's large, and lovely.

|Dolores J. Rush||Here's you another one!|
My Griffin cousin, Marvin Allen, has a bit on his website about the Bush Settlement as well. Interested? http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~allensofwhiteoak/bush-settlement/index.html

You're quite welcome.
|Dolores J. Rush||William Fletcher|
I found my 5th great-grandfather, William Fletcher, mentioned in this book: "Captain Billy Bush and the Bush Settlement, Clark County, Kentucky, A Family ..." By Harry G. Enoch, p. 70-79 at books.google.com
It also mentions Ambrose Bush as well as Rev. Robert Elkin. Thot you might be interested.
