|Bio and Links|
|I have been doing family history research since completing a cub scout merit badge over 30 years ago. As a teen, I began walking and cycling through area cemeteries, noting familiar surnames and wondering if they were related. In high school, I helped a friend's grandmother work on her family history, as she had trouble reading what she had typed. This was "old school" genealogy - collecting and trading books, writing letters to genealogy societies, and contacting various relatives by telephone and mail. Times have changed!|
I am also a licensed Amateur Radio operator. Licensed as KA9HTW in 1980 (Novice), upgrading to Advanced class in the spring of 1981. Later upgraded to Extra class, changing my call to WQ9T. I work as a journeyman electrician, and am a member of IBEW local 34, Peoria, for over 25 years. Former member UFCW. I have been married for over 22 years, with two children.

|Virgie Perrin||RE: Key family|
My goodness Richard. I stand corrected and am so sorry. You have so much information it is unreal. I do wish I had even close to that much information on my ggg grandmother Nancy Key b: about 1785 that married Samuel Huston in Montgomery Co, Ohio. I am not able to find who her parents were but always thought she is a daughter of William and Rachel Hansbrough-Key. But..will probably never know.
You are certainly correct in that you had information that they were born in Fayette Co.
Thank you so much for your information and I will change mine.
Thanks for writing,

|Wm. Johnson||William E. McVey|
He was my uncle, my father's sister was Katherine McVey. I grew up in Galesburg and used to visit him in Harvey as a child. The only connection left is his daughter, Kathy (Reynolds) in Vienna, Va.
Thanks for the photos :)
|Shawdau||Adeline Reed at Monmouth Cem.|
Hi. I made memorials for Adeline's parents today based on P.B. Reed's obituary from the Warren Co. Gen. Soc. book, Obits & Tidbits, Vol. II (1850 - 1920). There's no date mentioned for when his obituary was in the newspaper, but it was between 1902 and 1906. If you would like to manage these memorials, let me know - maybe you can figure out the name of their tenth child! Also, Adeline and Emeline were twins.

|EmLynn Thompson||RE: John Henderson at Camp Nelson Nat. Cem.|
You're welcome. Have you tried searching here?
You have to go through a lot of John Henderson's but it lists a lot of information for each. You have a lot of information on him so I'm guessing you know a lot about the Civil War but I'm just going to put this out there.
Whether he's Confederate or Union makes a difference. They didn't allow burial of Confederate Soldiers in National Cemeteries until 1906. Most Confederate dead were left on the battlefield or buried (re-buried in some cases)in local cemeteries or soldier lots. Many National Cemeteries have "Confederate lots" set aside for those soldiers where they are all buried in one section together. If you believe you've located him on the locator and if he's Confederate call to see if they have a Confederate lot. Camp Nelson National does not to my knowledge. Also
Union stones have a curved top and Confederate are pointed.
I have several Union soldiers in my family, they are in National Cemeteries. The one Confederate was buried in the cemetery on the family farm in Tenn.
If John he died during the war he'd have been buried where he was unless the family had enough money to have his body returned. Many are buried five or more states away from where they lived. One of mine lived in TN, mustered in in VA fought in KY, TN, MS, and IL. They moved a lot and many died from injuries and illness moving from one area to another. You should be able to find out what battles he was in by researching the unit. Hope that wasn't information overload. Good Luck.
|EmLynn Thompson||John Henderson 1863|
Hi, I've gotten you're photo request. I can't find him under any National Cemetery via the VA National grave site search, which means he won't be in Camp Nelson's onsite locator. Being a veteran I find the VA's system sketchy at best. I always go out and check the plot, which is often an unmarked. I then walk the the entire section just to be sure. The information you have is usually what on the stone if not more. I know the importance the photo makes. Give me a couple of days, we're in a patch of wet(ter) weather in KY right now, it's called winter :) Michelle
|Susan Neikirk||Arthur Christy Davis again|
Arthurs wife Louise was from France. I have a couple wonderful photos of her I will look for. She should be buried by Arthur.
|Susan Neikirk||Arthur Christy Davis|
Arthur played for John Phillip Sousa. In fact the photo on his findagrave site is owned my me and he is in California in his Sousa uniform. It is also the time (if you remember Music Man 76 trombones) that all the bands came together and played. I have this information on a postcard.
