Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history exploration for me begins with Ottawa Co, Kansas, but of course led across the country. An inheritor of several generations of newspaper clippings, I started transcribing obits from microfilm beginning at the 1879 start of the paper and realized the value of reading them all in understanding my family's history in the region. A sort of 'community-based genealogy' habit grew and expanded, as did an interest in cemetery preservation and recording.

Living now in a rural Kentucky county, our local history goal is to locate the old family cemeteries up in the hills, photograph and record. Most are hidden and overgrown; some remarkably well looked after by landowners whether related or not. And several are out there yet to be found...

Am happy to transfer your relatives and happy to help in the hunt for them.

RE: John C. Hammond
Thank you! I really appreciate your help! His Civil War service is a mystery!

Please connect Clarence to his mother, Sarah Dovey Cain Warner, Find-a-Grave Memorial #110243504. I would be happy to take over management of this memorial. Clarence was my great-uncle.

RE: Peter Swisher x2
Thanks for your reply and yes, you should keep them since you are a direct descendant. My line is Peter>Peter>Isaac>James>Charles>Bush Swisher. Do you know where Isaac and Jane Gaston Swisher are buried? Do you know if your John Gaston and my Jane Gaston were related?

Kate: Since your memorial was created last is it possible for you to remove it. Rich insists that he can't do anything about merging the files because he had the first one.

If you would remove yours I will work at getting all the kids, 2nd husband and parents added to his memorial.

Appreciate your help and all the work you do on Find A Grave. Thanks.

Are you related to the Disney/Brenner families from Ottawa County?

John C. Hammond
Hi, I noticed that you created John C. Hammond's find a grave memorial.

I am his 4th great grandson (direct lineage). I was wondering if you have done any research on him? I am trying to figure out if he was in the Civil War. There were several John Hammond/Hammons/Hammonds that served in KY. I thought since you had posted his obituary and the photo of his marker, that maybe you could help me out. I appreciate you creating his memorial. If you do not want to manage it now or in the future, I will gladly assume that role. Thank you!
