Bio Photo Permission Granted to download or save for use at your discretion, any photos taken to fulfill F.A.G. Requests, or any photo of my direct family I have posted. Please attribute me if posted on those "paid" sites, ie Ancestry.
*update Nov 2013, now that Ancestry OWNS/has purchased Find a Grave, your Photos are now THEIR photos, as well as all the genealogical date we have all posted on here. Ancestry is not stupid!!
Photos of the World War II crewmen were given by their family members and they shared them for the Memorials. *Please do not take them unless you are a family member!

Genealogist, 30 plus years, DAR, Colonial Dames XVIIC, Mayflower. Will do digital pics of Fayette, Scott,and Bourbon cos only. As volunteers for F A G, my partner Clinton Slayton and I often image all in the cemetery. We are be happy to transfer anyone of your family to you if they are not part of our lines.

We also have a private research project called the "Sharon Belle B-17 Memorial Association",to identify the American crewmen of the B-17's flown from England during World War II, particularly "The Sharon Belle". She crashed on 30 Nov 1943 near Helmdon, England, early morning at 0819 hours, on a mission to Germany. The mission was scrubbed due to bad weather, the craft exploded in mid-air during return to the field.

The ten brave men our Country lost were:
Lt. William Murray Holland
Capt. Richard W. Pugh, new Commanding Officer.
1st Officer, Leighton D. Patterson
2nd Lt. William S. Munro
T/Sgt Thomas D. Glaspell
T/Sgt Billy Freeman
S/Sgt Dean Landfear
S/Sgt Charles E. Slayton (uncle of Clinton's)
S/Sgt Harry A. Scott
S/Sgt Henry P. Brannan

Another research project is to identify the crewmen of the World War II,B-17 "Hell From Heaven Men", that flew under Capt. Richard Ezzard of the 19th Bomb Group. The last mission was in the Pacific with Australian navigator Allen Thompson. Except for Mr. Thompson most of the crewmen are now deceased. Any information on any of these crewmen is welcomed.

This is my 3rd term as Registrar. They re-wrote the chapter bylaws so I could continue. I really enjoy it but it is so much work and it leaves me with so little time to do my own family research. I know that National says we need committees but it is hard to get people to participate and you really should know how to research if you are in this particular job otherwise there will be no new members. We have a small chapter as well - 87 members.

Yes, I am related to the Slaydens. Lucy Slayden married Jethro Dodson (I was able to prove Jethro Dodson to his father to DAR's satisfaction and have a supplemental!). Lucy's father was William Slayden/Slayton married to Nancy Shelton. I have had several matches through the autosomal DNA tests with Slayden and Shelton. I had two of my sisters tested, myself and two cousins. As you know we each bring a different amount of our ancestors DNA to the table so it is very interesting to say the least to see who we match.

RE: Lazarus Dodson
Whoooo...hooooo!!! So excited to hear this news. I was hoping she would get in. I am still the Registrar for my chapter..could not get someone else as it is a big job. I do have someone now that says she will do it in 2 years. She just became a member in June and I am helping her learn the ropes.
Look forward to hearing from you in the future and I still want you to know how much I appreciate your work with the Slaydens. Have you done the autosomal DNA test?

I'm sorry to say that I don't have any photos of any of the Fenwick family. Joseph Selby married Nellie Christine French (one of my cousins) and that is why I put their memorials here.

RE: Re Elizbeth Minnear Lewis
A much better photograph has been posted to Elizabeth Lewis memorial, thanks to Rick.

According to her stone, Elizabeth was born Nov 29, 1806, died March 12, 1891. I have corrected my mistake to show the dates on her stone.

Another grandson of Dr. Lewis' Clyde Alexander was County Judge for a number of years Clyde Alexander married into my daughter' Palmer family.

RE: Re Elizbeth Minnear Lewis
I found Moses Lewis, mention a few times on some of the pages, never copied anything down on Moses. I think one of the articles was where he shipped a train load of cattle to NY.

Dr. H.H. Lewis was Henry H Lewis, born 1828, died 1907, married Melvina Moore. Both buried in the Barnes Lewis cemetery, with some of their children.

RE: Re Elizbeth Minnear Lewis

I just completed looking all the newspapers pages with Lewis listed in the Bath Co, Newspaper, from the years of 1891 thru 1898. Hoping I could find some mention of Elizabeth Lewis. death, illness or maybe where one of her children have visited her, any mention of Elizabeth in anyway, I never found anything mentioned about her. I did find quite a few times her son Dr. Lewis was mention and some of her other sons, but never Elizabeth.

I contacted a person who lived about 2 miles from the Barnes and Lewis cemetery, I ask him if he would get a picture for me showing Elizabeth' death date. If I don't get the pic, I am still hoping to be in KY., Salt Lick the last of May.

God Bless
