Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was introduced to Find a Grave about 2000 by a cousin. Together we tried to add as many members of our family as we possibly could. It wasn't long before my cousin became the subject of his own memorial page. Eventually, I realized that there was more I could do than just search for my own family. So, I began trying to add photos whenever I could. Recently I became involved in a cemetery project in my area. A friend and I began searching through the hills, bushes and briers for long abandoned cemeteries, adding what we find to Find a Grave.
Find a Grave is a great site for people who are researching their family. We have made it our goal to do whatever we can to make it the very best it can be.

It was the wrong photo. No matter how careful I try to be, I sometimes make mistakes. Thanks for letting me know.

RE: Nelson Cemetery
Thank you... The names I added were stones visable in 1968... They may not be standing or there any longer.
Like our county her we have a cemetery right on the county line and Dona Ana includes it in their cemetery listing and Sierra includes it in theirs which adds to confusion... So thank you, this is one and the same cemetery and I will make a note in my DAR book

Nelson Cemetery
I noticed you have a photo posted of this cemetery that Find A Grave says is located:
Scott County
Kentucky USA

I have a book published by the DAR in 1968 that shows the location of this cemetery in GRANT County on Kentucky State Road 1032.

Can you clarify?
Are the Find A Grave names posted to the wrong cemetery?
Or is it on the county line? I have names to add to the cemetery but dont want to add if not the same cemetery..

Depends on which Louisa you mean. According to my grandfather his parents were William Miller and (El)Louisa Carpenter. My research, verified by a 2nd cousin, shows that William died in a cave-in about 1881. Louisa remarried with widower John Lewis Steele in 1885 in Mason county, W.V.
