Yelligs that is just amazing. I've had the same thing happen- a cemetery that the records were lost for- just roamed and suddenly there they were, along with two children that died very young and the requester didn't even know existed. Thanks again for ALL you've done!
Yellig photos oh my goodness thank you so much for the rapid response. I had dared to hope there were markers for them. I was thrilled to see such good photos and the inscriptions so clear even after all this time. I have been able to correct the dates that I had been given- seems their grandson who compiled "The Yellig Family Tree" was a bit off- but not by much. Again, many thanks!
RE: Cooper Cemetery It has been a while since I visited the cemetery, but I do know one thing. It is very off the beaten path. There is a small sign (if I remember right it is wooden) on Haysville Rd which points to the cemetery. When you tuurn south onto 150W just keep weaving through the corn field. The road becomes a small track through the field and leads to the cemetery which is surrounded by woods. Good hunting! Look hard back into the wooded area, especially behind the big tombstone marking the entrance. I found some stones hidden back there.
RE: Headstone/Grave Marker In 2001, a group did a large cleanup of Cooper Cemetery. They reset stones that were there and purchased a large stone on which they put the names of the individuals whose stones they had found. The bottom line of that stone reads:
"Three sandstone markers and a possible 125 unmarked graves also noted. Jonathan Milburn is the man that tradition says built the first frame home in Louisville, KY. Located nearby was the Union Church of Harbison Twp Deed Book 6, Page 108. Cemetery Restored 200"
In 2009, I took pictures of all the individual stones that I could find/read. I am sorry to say that I do not have an individual picture for Quanda Cooper in my digital files. It is possible that the stone had further deteriorated and was unreadable. As I would not have known to whom it belonged. I would not have taken a picture.
I am not sure where Dennis Bailey got the information from the stone that he added when he created the memorial for Quanda.
