Isaac S Laird - 49398105
Found this page today.

Am very interested in finding out more information about the Laird family.

I'm researching Isaac's father Thomas, his grandfather James and great grandfather Matthew, including their wives.

Also looking for John Laird, Isaac's great uncle a son of Matthew Laird.

Have a special interest in Matthew's son James who warried Elizabeth Sterrett, his daughter Elizabeth (Eliza) and her husband David Allen.

Any information you are willing to share would be much appreciated and if I have anything you may wish I am willing to share as well. Thank you very much.

RE: John Brooks
No cemetery records exist that I am aware of.

My interest in this John Brooks is two-fold.

1st - Elizabeth, daughter of the Kentucky pioneer Coats if my line, married John Brooks s/o of John Brooks and Lilly Amos.

2nd - My wife (Emma L. Brooks) is a descendant of John and Lilly.

As noted above I have no "original" documentation to support that John h/o Lilly, or Lilly, were buried in this Harper Cemetery. In my genealogy database I addressed this issue as follows;

"Several sources list the interment of John as being in Harper Cemetery, Horse Cave, KY. I have not found any public documentation to verify that he is buried in this cemetery. However, I've not found anything to suggest another burial site. Harper Cemetery is an old cemetery with a number of field stones marking graves. The density of graves within the cemetery is not particularly high; considerable space is unused.

There is a somewhat isolated block of graves (4 rows, approximately 40-50 feet wide) with four engraved tombstones, all engraved markers are Brooks' (George, Slyuvester, Napolean, and Lyda) and all four engraved markers are located in the southeast corner of this block. In the very northwest corner of this block (of graves) is a grave marked with a field stone and a metal funeral home marker labeled "John Brooks." The source of the metal funeral home marker, and when it was added, is unknown but certainly add many years after his death if this is fact the John Brooks who died in 1815. John's death in 1815 was in then Barren County, KY, present day Hart County."

I have a fair database on the descendants of John and Lilly Brooks but many parts of my database are lacking. If you are interested in exchanging information contact me at

RE: Jesse Fetty
Found it, thanks. Very possible that George is buried in Andover or Mt. Pleasant cemeteries near Blythedale, MO, just nothing that would prove it so far. I just found and created memorials for Joseph and Rhea Fetty in Rose Hill Cemetery in Lamoni, but they are the only Fetty's listed there.

RE: Jesse Fetty
It's making me crazy, but I can't find the 1860 census, where were they living?

RE: Jesse Fetty
Hi Maydean,

Thanks for the compliment. No, not related, just inherited over half of the memorials in Andover and updated and linked as many in that cemetery as I could. Was just luck that I found the DC which told me Jesse was buried there, so that I could create his memorial, and more luck to have found the obit! The following link gives a little information about Jesse's parents, George and Elizabeth Wilcox Fetty, both of whom apparently were born in Pennsylvania, as shown on the Family Search website:

I have not been able to find any information about Jesse's wife, Mary Ann Kingsolver, but by Googling "George Fetty, 1790-1860", I believe that I did find a site that said Jesse was an only child, but certainly don't have any proof of that.

Sorry that I can't be of more help.

Best regards,

RE: Antoinette Maria Allen Smith
Only information Sharon has is from census records on ancestry. We have the card from Antionette funeral notice, passed down from Minerva, that is what is posted on her findagrave memorial. John S. Smith is brother of Sharon's Great,Great,Grandmother Minerva Rossetta (Smith) Gibson. Email us if we can help you.

RE: Jenny Carpenter Kylander
I've added all Carpenter's on the directory to FindAGrave, but that's not a definitive no on a burial for him here. I've found quite a few that ARE buried in Crown Hill, but not on the directory (By either headstones or newspaper stories).

Was he a widower? Was his wife buried in the area they raised their children, or used to live? I've found often times that a parent who was widowed, then moved to live near a child - when they passed on, they were taken "back home" to be buried with the spouse. Try that first.

I'll look in the newspapers and see if I can find anything about a G.W. Carpenter. Was his name George Washington Carpenter?
