Thank you, Ruth Ann Jarrell Ricketts

Judy, sorry it has take me so long in getting back to you. I have been under the weather just now getting back into things. I wanted to link Helen to her son Thomas W. Day 86810484 which you declined. I was wondering why. Since I have done research and talked with Thomas son and he has confirmed that helen is Thomas dad.

Amen Sister! This is my Mantra, too! :)

I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.

It's funny, recently I requested a transfer and on the manager's profile bio it simply said, "PAY IT FORWARD".

Then, she proceeded to NOT transfer to me, never replied to my request, deleted my message on her board (so she obviously read it), and then transferred it to some stranger with no ties to the person, and that new manager refuses to relinquish the memorial.

Unfortunately, my relationship is not by blood, so I cannot appeal to Find A Grave administrators.

So sad that people deny transfers when the person asking is able to adequately explain/define the relationship and upload photos that only someone close would have, and add family links and personal bios.

So sad. So much for "Pay it forward". Ha.

They certainly are greener than my dead yard. I don't know what they are doing, but at another nearby cemetery, the flat marker was obscured by a thick layer of packed dirt. I had to stand on the marker and grind my heel into the dirt for some time to get it so I could brush it away. (I don't like to be disrespectful in this way but it seemed impossible to brush or wash the dirt away so the stone could be read.) I would not have said that marker had been moistened in quite some time to have the dirt so completely dry -- like cement -- all the way through, but the grass around it was green...

Hi Judy, Next time you're out at Lower Lake Cemetery, would you mind taking a newer photo of my Grandfather's headstone? The one I have on his memorial is from Grandma Fern's funeral, and I'd love one that has Grandpa George's death date inscribed on the stone. Many thanks! :)

Thank you for the additional picture of my father's headstone, and the transcription. I was wondering if Lower Lake Cemetery suffered any damage from the recent fires. Your picture shows me my father and grandparents' graves are undamaged. I truly appreciate that. Thank you!

RE: Heavenhill and Prunty
Hi Judy,

I do not have any first hand information where my 3rd great grandmother is buried. Perhaps this below will help From the Kentucky standard in 1900.

The Kentucky Standard Dec 15 1900 Vol 1 Number 1 - Page 3

Notable Burying Ground

There are a number of noteworthy old family burying grounds in the country surrounding Bardstown. One of the most interesting of these is located on the old Bryan Neal farm, near the tollgate on the Gilky Run pike. Within its precinct slumber some of the first pioneers of Nelson county, notably Bryan Neal and his wife, who came to Kentucky while it was still a part of Virginia. The graves of this couple are not marked by any stone, and the dates of their deaths cannot be ascertained but it is known they were very aged when they died. Others who are buried there and are directly connected with the Neal family are; Susan Heavenhill, born in 1783; died 1871, Elizabeth Price, born 1793; died 1865, Sarah Patterson, born 1786; died 1847. James Coleman, born 1805; died 1845. With the exception of the latter the above named were the children of Bryan Neal, Mr. Coleman, being his grandson. Besides these Wm. Heavenhill is buried there, together with his two children, Mrs. Anne Prunty and Miss Jane Heavenhill. These two ladies were far advanced in years, Miss Heavenhill being 81 years old.

I just wanted to thank you for putting a picture up of my uncles grave. Your thoughtfulness means a great deal. I was not able to go to his funeral. I don't know much about his last days.

Again thank you,

Thank you for Nina Fitts
My sister and I did not know there was a headstone for ďNana,Ē as we called her. Our mom told us that she was cremated and her ashes were spread on the lake. Iím sure thatís true, too. Maybe our Uncle Dick made the stone happen and we just never heard about it.

We spent a great deal of time in Clearlake Park and Lower Lake when we were kids. Itís wonderful to know that such great people still live there!

Thank you so much for uploading all those photos.

Mary M Fisher 82787143
I know it's a long shot, but any chance you're related or know anything more about the Mary M Fisher you created a memorial for (#82787143)? It looks like someone else gave you some obituary info to add and you said some was cemetery info. It looks like you gave the contributor's Find a Grave id #, but I can't figure out a way to search for just a contributor (as opposed to a memorial). Maybe you know how to do that? Thank you very much for creating the memorial! I've had very little to go on, but I think this is my GGG grandmother!

I apologize for that - I was cutting and pasting for several different people and forgot to check for edit on people that only had one record.

Linda Wilson headstone

Thank you for adding the memorial and headstone photo for Linda Wilson in Lower Lake Cemetery. I appreciate your work. Are you related to her? If not, I'm her 2nd cousin and would like to have her record transferred to me. If you are related then that's great! Please let me know.

Thank you,

Thank you so much for the memorials and headstone pictures of Lucy Riffe and children. They are distant cousins of mine. I live in Kentucky and would have never known where they were buried. I have added their headstone pictures to my family tree. Again thanks so much!
