Robert Day
RE: Day family research
My name is Robert E. Day and I also answer to Bob. I live in Tennessee but by family is originally from West Liberty (Morgan County). I'm afraid I can't help you with you ancestor. I don't have him in my family tree but that doesn't mean he doesn't belong there since I have only traced my direct ancestors back that far.

Have you looked at I did a quick search and found several trees with Jacob Kelly Day, b 1796 in Tazwell Co., VA., d. 1838 in Morgan Co., KY. If you already knew this and are looking for a grave location, I am 99% certain that all the graves in Day Hill Cemetery are listed on Find-A-Grave. This cemetery is on property that was originally owned by my GG Grandfather, Robert C. Day, and passed down my direct line to my father before being sold.

I generally treat information in family trees as hints rather than facts until I find independent sources to support the information. Hints that I'm currently tracing indicate that my GGG Grandfather, Jesse C. Day (1802-1883), had five brothers born between 1783 and 1796; and his father, John Day (1760-1837), had five brothers born between 1757 and 1772. None of these ten were Jacob or Kelly but he may be a son of one of them. I haven't expanded my research into these lines yet but I'll be glad to share the little bit I do have if you think it will help with your research.

Apparently John Day came to the area that is now Morgan and Wolfe Counties in the early 1800's from Virginia where all of his children were born.

RE: Day Family research
Hi Robert,
I really have no information on your relative. But you could try I see he is in many family trees on that website. Good luck in your search.

RE: Lawson, Shaw, Nieder family plot
Hi Bob,

Thanks for the great pictures! I really appreciate your generosity. I created a new memorial for John Frederick Shaw (husband of Jessie Lawson) and submitted the photo request.

Thanks also for the offer to get the "Lot plots" card from the cemetery office to help locate Mary A. Crenshaw. She may also be listed as Maybelle Lawson (wife of Harry E. Crenshaw).

Debbie filled the request for Mary Mae Moore MacDonald and she gave me the section she was buried in!
I am so sorry for the trouble, I did't think that a cemetery could be a pain in the well you know where.

Aaron "Perk" Stafford
Thank you so much for your time and effort in getting me the picture of the headstone of Aaron "Perk" Stafford, I appreciate it so much!
I have added Mary Cain Stafford to Findagrave, so if you would like to add her headstone to her the number is 87190304!
I received a email from Floral Hill, stating that I am not a close relative of the Moore's so no help there, I won't request any photos for Floral Hill again!
What a problem.
