RE: william knight younts
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question about William Yonts. In this area (Muhlenberg County, KY) many of the stones for this family are spelled Yonts. However, it is said that my many-times great grandmother insisted it must be spelled with a "Z." I just thought the middle name of Knight might indicate that he was named for someone in his family by that name. I'll keep it in mind when next I work on the line. I appreciate your response and also all the contributions you make to Find a Grave memorials. Oh, yes, one more thing. Several years ago Brenda Collier Doss, who has made many contributions to genealogical research locally, stated to me that she had found a small stone in Nelson Creek Cemetery for Wlliam. To my knowledge she has never documented it but it does make sense that he and his wife would have been buried together. I have an inventory of his estate by son William (and wife Katharine) which confirms somewhat his date of death. I have also worked on the Heltsley line. Brenda C. Doss was a Heltsley descendant. Again, thanks.

William Knight Younts
Re William Knight Younts #133957459 and wife Mary Spraker #116471037. These two people are also my fifth great grandparents also. And I'm 85 years old! I descend from their son Rudolph. Am interested in knowing to which of their nine children you belong. Also would be interested in the source of William's middle name "Knight." This is new to me and I've worked on the Yontz (the spelling my ggg Betsy (Yontz) Smith preferred) many years. Appreciate your response. Thanks. ....Dorann O'Neal Lam, native of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.

Ron, Sorry that I am unable to help you concerning Find A Grave inactive contributors. The Humphreys are distance cousins by marriage of mine to a daughter of Doug & Emma Floyd (1st cousin of my grandmother). Their daughter, Myrtle Floyd first married a Cross and then married a Humphrey. Hope that helps. Sharon

Sorry, but I only listed them on findagrave. Don't know too much about most of them.
Again, so

RE: FAG NUMBER 62655774
I walked the entire cemetery in 2010. I verified the Benton County Cemetery Listing Book and took photos of all stones in the cemetery. There is no stone for Jackson Lyndell Sarrett. I have put a note on the memorial indicating the stone may be wrong or he may have been called by another name.

This is a duplicate of Jack Dawson Holland (33991237). Maybe they can some how be merged. It is very confusing from some of us researchers. thank you

RE: Capt Moore's photo
I was merely trying to be courteous, Ron, to preserve the attribution to you. But never mind, I posted it.
Have a good day.
