First a big THANK YOU to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers and the folks who keep it running!

Thanks to my Auntie A I got hooked on genealogy. Her 50+ years of research added to my own 20 years we've sorted out a lot of facts from fiction and put flesh on the bones of our ancestors.

Researching the following: Bottom, Russell, Laws/Lawes, Carpenter, Utterback, Godkin, Krebeck; Wynn; Mills; Hanks, and too many more to add here!

If I can be of help in any of the above, please feel free to ask, after all, sharing is one of the best parts of genealogy!

Sorry for the delay in adding the bio. Just found where I opened the message, but didn't follow up until now. Thanks, Loretta

RE: Gray
Enjoyed it very much. Just found this website and saw that the request was from my local cemetery so made for a great afternoon walk. Hope to be able to do more in the future for others. Just getting started on this whole geneology thing :)

I see that you transferred this to a "hightower". Can you tell me how you found (or was it ms hightower) that found the information on WB's children and wife?

I see that you've been working on them. My cemetery book lists 33, and there are only 22 on this site. More work to do. :)

The Kellys
I forgot to ask..I see that at least two of the Kelly men were jewelers. I worked with John Kelly, a USPS city carrier, in the mid 1980's. He and his wife ran a jewelry store for a while as well. Is the John I knew part of your family?

RE: Kelly photos
To me, that's what this site is all about, to honor those who have gone before us, and to help families in search of them, find them. If you would like transfer of Mrs. Bottom, just send me an edit. "Each Day Counts", Loretta

RE: Kelly in Oak Hill
Ok, the Kellys that I have are entered. I'm not happy with the quality with some of them. The sun was at my back and left shadows, and Wm and Susie's is at a slant from me trying to avoid them. I've filled William, Susie, Ethel and Vassie for you. Nearest to them was Elizabeth Kelly Bottom. I made a memorial for her.
Then...the questions for the other six. All but one of the stones have merely initials. Click on the group photo for any of them, and it will tell you where each are located in the photo. They are:
J.S. 1881-1932
Margueritte F. 1845-1931
W.H. 1843-1912 (William Henry, he had a memorial)
F.C. 1868-1916
W.G. 1877-1925 (William Garfield, he had a memorial.
Have fun with the initials...whew wee.

RE: Kelly in Oak Hill
It will probably be the weekend before I get them added. Have the grandsons here now. I'll let you know when I get them completed. Loretta

Kelly in Oak Hill
Hello, I will be filling your photo requests for William, Susie, Ethel and Vassie Kelly shortly. Just wondered if you were interested in the other Kelly interments that are near to them. There are 6 stones together, only two of which have memorials. I will be making them one. Loretta
