The person blatantly duplicated the memorials I had already entered & she created a new cemetery. The admins did nothing even though they knew she was going to do it. I asked her to work with me she wouldn't. I'm not removing my original entries in the originally created cemetery. I'm sorry you're caught in this.

RE: Jacksons on Owen co
>> I would appreciate a transfer of any of those in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery that you wouldn't mind transferring.

Feel free to ask for any individual markers that you want.

Since I stood over the stone and took the image, and could also use touch to help interpret it, I would ignore all surveys (books or online) that say otherwise, unless there is an obvious alternate interpretation for the inscription due to wear on the stone.

Jacksons on Owen co
None of these are related to me, I am in the habit of taking these on bike rides in the boonies. You can have them to edit as you wish, thanks!

RE: Hensley Cemetery
My Grandma had a hand written paper that said Martha and her daughter were buried at Turkey Gap. Her Grandpa was John Luther, Martha's son and she got some papers from him. Is that the location you are talking about? I can just change the cemetery on the page. Have you been to this other location?

Hensley Cemetery
I did not put any GPS info on this cemetery and don't even know how to find that as I don't use GPS. I only sent a note to findagrave with the location from old family papers.

David Mefford FAG Memorial # 114008042
Dear Donna: I just saw your artful photograph of the rescued headstone of David Mefford. Well done! Would you fill me in on the circumstances. Do you need assistance with its repair and restoration? Oh, are you a Mefford descendant? With the inscription you provided I backed-off the "60 years, 9 months, and three days" and arrived at 12 Jul 1801 for his date of birth. However, I'd prefer to have someone else check my math. Hope to hear from you soon. All the best...

RE: T.H. Estes
Donna can you help me with a Scott Co. and Owen Co. KY genealogy of the Estes family? The counties join and I found William P. and Martha Estes from Owen Co. who's son Thomas disappeared (maybe during the War between the States) Capt. T.H. Estes was married and buried in Miss. I'm trying to get family link (I had a ggg Grandfather Estes) and was needing the link to Capt. T.H. Estes.

RE: T.H. Estes
Donna I believe I found out where Capt. T.H. Estes is buried. Como, Miss(Panola County) now I need a place of birth for him in Kentucky. That has been hard for me to pin down. There is a T.H. Estes buried in Stamping Ground(Hockensmith Cemetery) I wonder if that is his father? Anyway I need somehow to find his county of birth in Kentucky.

Thank You

T.H. Estes
I'm looking for a T.H. Estes son with the same name he would have been in the Civil War time period 1861-65 born 1840's perhaps?
