Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to my Mother; Mary Eugenia (Whisman) Davis I have quite an extensive Family Tree. Some of them go back 10 and 12 generations.

I am a first generation Michigangander, but the first three generations of my ancestors all lived in Southeast Kentucky, Lee and Wolfe Counties for the most part. Before that most of them came from Virginia and North Carolina.

The last few years I have been on a quest to find and photograph as many of my ancestors gravesites or cemeteries as I can find. So far I have pictures of all of the first three generations, that includes; Father, Mother, all Grandfathers and Grandmothers all Great Grandfathers and Great Grandmothers,2 G.G Grandfathers and G.G. Grandmothers, 2 G.G.G. Grandfathers and G.G.G. Grandmothers and 1 G.G.G.G. Grandfather.

Some of my lines are: Davis, Whisman, Creech, Parsons, Tutt, Evans, Stamper, Pennington, Hieronymus, Crawford, Spencer and Hanks.

Some grave sites that I am currently looking for:

William Micheal Whisman and Isabella (Spencer) Whisman, Whisman Cemetery, Booth Ridge, Wolfe Co. Ky.

Henry Evans Sr. and Lucinda (Hanks) Evans, Canyon Falls, Lee Co. Ky.

James B. Stamper and Tamer (Tolson) Stamper,
Stamper Cemetery, Grassy Creek, Morgan Co. Ky.

William Stamper and Emily Stamper,
Stamper Cemetery, Grassy Creek, Morgan Co. Ky.

Dr William A. Tutt and Sarah (Stamper) Tutt, Faulkner-Tutt Cemetery, Wolfe Co. Ky.
*Found: May 7, 2013*

GPS co-ordinates are great.

I am a first generation Michigander but every drop of blood in my body came from Southeast Kentucky.

Because my address book has been hacked several times, I do not open e-mails that contain nothing in the 'subject' box.

Uncle buck Creech
My grandfather was James Thomas. He was a close friend to Uncle Buck Creech and Joe Chambers. I found the obit on Find a grave and am printing off to show my Mom! My grandfathers ancestors have been hard to research. My grandfathers father was James Thomas too! Thank you for the picture. I'm going to check out Lee Co. VA because some families moved to a new territory together! My grandfather, James Thomas was with one of Uncle Buck,s sons and was shot. Your info shows two of his sons were killed. Again, thank you for posting the info and the picture.

Zollie Creech
Enoch Creech married on 05 Jun 1886 in Lee County, Kentucky to Lourana Jones. Spelling could also be Laurana and transcribed wrong by family search.

Zollie's mother died as Mrs Lorraine Cockerham in Monica, Kentucky on 16 Oct 1865 in Lee County, Kentucky. These two facts should have been able to be found in Lee County archives as well as all the years that she lived and was added to the censuses in Lee.

Laurana is the d/o of my 2nd G-grandmother Louisa Lawson and Andrew Jones. After Louisa Lawson married Jeremiah Brewer in 1869, only Asa Jones was living with them from her first marriage and Laurana was living with her grandmother Eliza Jane Jones.

To my knowledge, Zolliecoffer was her and Enoch's only child. Name is on the 1900 Lee County census.

RE: Louraine Jones, Zollie Creech
I will get back to you late tomorrow or Sunday with all the info on Zollie. We had storms today so I was not on the internet and tonight I need to get some sleep before my brother's memorial service tomorrow.

RE: Zollie Creech
Thank you. I am sure you did all you could in that cemetery. It is great that you are in Kentucky right now.

When looking for Laurana, and she does go by several names-Louranie- Lourane-- Lurance--Laurana, she died as Lorraine Cockerham in 1939 in St. Helens voting precinct and buried in Monica. Her second husband is Zachary Taylor Cockerham. Information for DC was Lillie Creech.

I only had Zollie, so I will look up his sister. Thanks for the information.
