Bio and Links
Bio Photo I normally add memorials from obituaries, but do occasionally document cemeteries when the weather is nice. I post obituaries just as I find them, due to the fact that they are normally not stored online for a very long amount of time. I find obituaries to be a very useful resource for genealogy research and connecting family members, but mean no harm in posting this information. If you would like for me to remove a part or all of an obituary from a memorial I added, feel free to contact me.

If I have added a memorial for your relative or have incorrect/incomplete information, feel free to send me a transfer request or correction. I usually reply to requests within a couple of days.

I am very interested in applying GPS coordinates to cemeteries in Clay County, KY, USA. If you know of a cemetery that has no coordinates that you can provide directions to, please leave me a message. Interested in helping out? Visit the Clay County, KY Cemetery Mapping Project on Facebook.

My interest in genealogy and Find A Grave stems from the unknown burial location of my great-grandfather, Daniel Boone Combs, in Harlan County, KY, USA. I post a forget-me-not virtual flower on each of the memorials I add with the hope that those persons descendants will never be unsure of their final resting place.

RE: Re: Jessie Carpenter
Yours is a duplicate in this cemetery, created after the other, but neither has a headstone photo, whereas the one at Manchester Memorial Gardens does. There is also 2 memorials for his wife, Bessie, in this cemetery and a 3rd in the Memorial Gardens. I'm not sure why they are listed here, but have a headstone at Memorial Gardens. My husband's aunt and uncle are buried there and I hope to visit there in the summer. Maybe I can figure it out. Just wanted to let you know. Thanks!
