RE: War Memorials
Dear LeeAnne, Thank You for such a sweet message...well, you and I seem to share the same hope to honor every military man and woman as they should be honored. =) My work has slowed down recently due to health matter as, but I am slowly getting back on here. My family history was a complete surprise...I was tracing for medical reasons, and within six months, I found family on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, family on HMS Hood, heroes who knew that they were going out on sorties (RAF) and probably not coming back...I literally wept when I realized thAt these men and women had been forgotten. Because I write for a living, some of my research crossed on Google and from there, others started asking me to post their own relative's pages, and it has rolled from there. Other than being a mom, I truly believe that my work on this site is one of my proudest accomplishments. =) I hope that we stay in touch and if we can, help one another with our searches and tributes...I will send folks your way asap for tokens and visits. Take Care...Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

I see you have had trouble also in gaining access to this location. I have several family members in this building and want to know if you have had any luck yet? I appreciate the security but at the same time life goes on for family and we should not be locked out from the "Prison" as you have stated. Any information is appreciated.

RE: Ledbetter
Ken has Lola Nancey Ledbetter, b. 1900, daug. of George Melton Dallas Ledbetter, son of Benjamin, son of Buckner, son of Arthur Ledbetter. 'Milton' makes more sense. He lists 10 children for George and a few families beyond for some of them. 3 children are listed for Lola.

James Calvin Ledbetter is son of Levi, son of Aaron, son of Buckner, son of Arthur. There are two cousins with the name James Calvin so researchers need to be careful. Anyway, your connection with us is Buckner. You're right, it's a little distant.

James died West of Burksville, KY and the family scattered. One son settled in Westfield, IL and you'll find his mother, Sarah Jane Long Ledbetter buried there in the Maple Hill cemetery.

RE: Ledbetter
Hi LeeAnn,

You can contact me directly at tdhintz at gmail dot com.

Kenneth E Haughton, Ph.D. Compiled a book called Lebetters Revisited in 2000. I have one of the last print copies he sold. It's huge. However, you can still get a copy from him on CD for basically the cost of his time to give it to you. He has an in depth analysis of the DNA data, which is quite interesting. The printed book has very little on the James Calvin Ledbetter line, but the cd may include the info. we provided after the book printing. Email me if you want his address of phone number. I suspect the email address I have for him is still good: khaughton at Juno dot com. I'll get back to you on the other branch.

So, yes you are a cousin. Both the line of George Ledbetter and Julia Howard, and my wife's line of James Calvin Ledbetter descend from Authur Ledbetter. If you own a copy of Ledbetters Revisited these would be 10BA and 10BP respectively. Both lines really trace to Overton Co, TN.

Putnam Co TN sounds familiar. I'll look tonight.

Are you familiar with the DNA project? You might be a cousin :)

What is your connection with the Ledbetters buried in Romney Indiana? We're trying to figure out why two brothers settled there. The family was from S. Central Kentuky.

Can relate to that...we'll always remember those "special" people in our lives. I'm glad for your happy memories! Thanks, again.

I'm glad you found the photos! I just added a another of the corridor to each memorial and also provided a link as husband/wife. I am transferring management to you. Let me know if there's any more I can help you with. Thanks for the email.

Find A Grave Memorial# 126253630
Thank you so much for sponsoring this memorial. I have transferred it to you: since you care enough to sponsor the memorial, I know how much the memorial means to you. My job is done. One of my goals on Find a Grave is to ascertain that descendants of American Revolution Patriots realize the importance of the role their ancestors played in the history of our country. I am especially happy when I can present that information to a descendant of one of the Heroes who fought at the Battle of King's Mountain.

Our history is intertwined: I find it amazing that our ancestors knew each other. I don't know how familiar you are with the Battle of King's Mountain. After the battle, the Patriots had to leave hurriedly, because Cornwallis was not far away and they were afraid he would retaliate, so they decided to take the POW's and retire to the farm of Colonel John Walker. A large number of the participants stayed at the farm for two days and nights before the long trip home. This is documented by Governor Shelby in the book he wrote with Lyman C. Draper, King's Mountain and Its Heroes... Colonel John Walker was my 6XGGF, so it is very possible that your ancestor stayed at the farm of my ancestor - amazing, that you and I met electronically.

Parenthetically, I married three weeks ago: two of my husband's direct ancestors and six of his GGU's fought at the Battle of King's Mountain as well. While I grew up in Spartanburg, SC, less than 40 miles from the battleground, my husband grew up in Alabama, and then we met on the Mississippi Coast where I moved after living in Mexico for several years. I am amazed how we all touch each other's lives two hundred and thirty four years later.

Again, thank you for your thoughtfulness.
