Bio and Links
Family history is a passion of mine. Knowing more about our ancestors and then locating their graves helps complete the story of one's life. For the last 14 years I have researched my own family history. I truly appreciate the service and time of strangers that have photographed my ancestors graves, homes and shared personal photos. In return, I have chosen to help others in their own pursuits of information especially with locating graves of loved ones. Cemeteries are exquisite places full of love and sorrow. As I photograph graves for others, I feel more closely connected to humanity.

Hello Jenny Dené-Hotchkiss (#47344781)

Thank you very much for your kindness and respect for your recent transfers of my family members. You will note the Peter Kivett Family Association, Inc. is the current caretaker of the Masters Cemetery. I spent 5 years with the IRS and lawyers to create the 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization; Peter Kivett Family Association, Inc. and severed as its vice president for several years to get it started.

As I move through my family ancestors many of whom are buried in the McMasters Cemetery I may contact you again. Thank you for honoring so many families with your Find A Grave memorials.

John York, Find A Grave Memorial# 112583550
Hello Jenny Dené-Hotchkiss (#47344781)

Thank you for creating Find A Grave Memorial# 112583550 for my 2nd great grandnephew John York. He is a 15 year old boy according to the family Bible who perhaps died from a very poisonous bite of an aggressive copperhead snake that is abundant in that region.

I have submitted several edits for this Find A Grave Memorial for you to review. If I recall the stone has the inscription “John York” , “age 15” and then the death date of “Feb 1, 1816”. If you expand the photo perhaps you can identify some of the inscriptions.

Again this deteriorating tombstone is from the local Soapstone Mountain Mine. I would be very pleased to receive a transfer of this Find A Grave Memorial# 112583550 with a transfer to Dennis York #47405652.

Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Find A Grave Memorials# 112570966 & 112570011
Hello Jenny Dené-Hotchkiss (#47344781):
Wow you have been busy creating Find A grave Memorials. I spent four years rescuing this McMasters Cemetery from a land developer and private land owners with lawyers. Many of ancestors and family people are buried in this cemetery. We have spent many days and years repairing and cleaning the tombstone and cemetery.

The entire row of tombstones that include the Find A Grave Memorials# 112570966 & 112570011 you created are made from the local Soapstone Mountain Mine. All of these are almost unreadable. In 2002-2004 we photographed all the tombstones and could read most of the inscriptions knowing what some of the names and dates were supposed to be from other records. It is truly sad to see these tombstones deteriorate.

Memorials# 112570966 & 112570011 are my 4th great aunt and uncle, Elinor York and Johnathan McCollum. I would be very pleased if these could be transferred to me, Dennis York #47405652 for continued maintenance while still honoring you as the original creator.

Thank you for your fine work and your consideration of this request.

Memorial # 14413931

Jenny, thanks so much for the excellent headstone and cemetery photos you took at the Old McMasters Cemetery. At least two of my Aldridge ancestors, William and Elizabeth, are buried there. I tried some years ago to find a volunteer who would search for Elizabeth's headstone but had no success.

Would you give permission for me to post your 3 photos to the pages I have for Elizabeth on my Alldredge family tree on Ancestry? I would of course credit you however you wish. If you'd rather not have them there I'll just say thanks again, I had been told earlier that the markers out at McMasters were too far gone to pull any legible letters or names. It's also nice to see a sign has been put up and finally know who is tending the site.

Nice work!

Donegal Ireland Campbell's
As most I have hit a wall when I got to the point of getting from US to Ireland. I have traced our line back to a John Campbell who was born in Donegal Ireland in 1772. He was in Maury county Tenn. in 1789 where he got married and died there in 1820> His widow and most of family ended up in Southern IL. I welcome all help, I have had trouble getting on this site but glad I finally have it has been a help. Thank you

RE: Burials in Greenwood
Not a problem. I had so much fun with these three, a little distraction. With all 3 of them together it only took a bit of investigation to solve the mystery and now some day family may be able to find them. Thanks for updating them.
