RE: Email from reseacher on Kemp
None. I merely snapped a photo or two of MARY KEMP BLANTON & her husband's graves and posted them. The name "MARY KEMP" matches the married name of my sister's late mother-in-law, and the graves lie in close proximity in Cairo Cemetery. I was taking her in-law's or perhaps someone else's grave photos and off the cuff decided to take the BLANTON graves photos also. Then you wrote me. After time passed I was simply sending you info that MIGHT provide data (if KEMPs & BLANTONs are related) and you desired such information. That's all. Sorry if that added confusion...

RE: Kemp Family
Hi Carey, Our Kemp line is mostly in the midwest. We have ancestors from Penn, Ohio, and some in South Dakota. Let me know if we are related! First Kemp over was Samuel Kemp from Gwenapp, Cornwall, Wales/England.

I have been trying to send you the photo of James Strickland so you could add but it keeps coming back un-deliverable. I had it due to I had photographed the whole cemetery and completed in May and have been downsizing and adding all the photos. Saw I had this one and thought it might help.

Thank you so much for photographing the nameplates for Joseph D. Orth and his wife, Doris. By the way, did you mean "mausoleum" (first word in caption for the photo)?

Blanton's in Salem Cemetery
I just went through my Find A Grave e-mails and realized that somehow I failed to transfer management of the Blantons to you. I do apologize for the delay. Usually, I am more prompt. Hope you will find the transfers you requested now fulfilled.

Thank you for the photo
Thank you for taking photos of James and Mildred Mullenax's headstones for me. James was my grandmother's brother, Mildred his wife. It was the first time I have ever used the "request a photo" tab and I wasn't sure what to expect. Wow, that was fast and I just can't thank you enough.

RE: Joseph James Blanton
Mr. Blanton,

You're welcome. I have always found this set of gravestones interesting particularly because I could not get much of an answer regarding just who this couple actually was. One of my sisters married a KEMP, whose parents were buried in the Cairo Cemetery in near proximity to the BLANTONS. Mr. Joseph James Blanton's wife was Mary Kemp, the same married name my brother-in-law's mother had. However, neither my brother-in-law nor his brother could clearly identify who this second Mary Kemp was to me. The graves so near each other, I sort of assumed she might be related to them. I do know that Mary Irwin married Bryant Kemp and my brother-in-law is the older of their 2 sons. Perhaps you can enlighten me on who Mary Kemp Blanton is beyond the wife of J.J.Blanton.
