Don't give up hope on this - I may find him on my next trip. At least half of the headstones in this cemetery are gone, or fallen over or buried. The undergrowth is so thick, along with our fall leaves, that your literally have to dig the headstones out. There are fallen trees and branches everywhere. But I will look again for him.

This cemetery is in a very remote area, across a river and up on a mountain. We have small cemeteries dotting the entire county, as it was common to have family cemeteries located on every farm. This one is larger than most, probably because there was a small country hospital in this town years ago. There is no driving or walking bridge across the river. You can drive straight thru the river with a 4-wheel drive vehicle, or walk a couple miles across a railroad bridge and down the tracks. Even if you choose the river route, you still have to park and walk as there is no way to get across the railroad tracks and up the mountain. And if you make it across the river, the driving path is not really very good. There is absolutely nothing on that side of the river now- no houses, roads, etc. There was once a small farm belonging to my ancestors, but most of the property was sold to the coal companies years ago. I really wish we had a means to take care of these small farm cemeteries, many are in complete disrepair.

I attempted to find this photo request for you at the Bob Hunter Cemetery, but could not find his grave. The cemetery is in very bad shape, many of the graves are sinking 3 or more feet into the ground and the markers are gone or turned over. I did find another Cook head stone which reads "Roy Cook, died Feb. 19, 1928." It is partially broken. I had to dig it out of the undergrowth, and there are probably many more markers buried up there which I did not come across. Ward Cook may be there also buried. I will post Roy in the Bob Hunter cemetery.

I'm wondering if you could transfer John Guse's memorial to me. He is my wife's uncle. If you prefer to keep it, I understand.

Teresa, thanks for linking Louise to her parents. She was a great lady - I was fortunate to meet her and become accquainted. Her home by the river was a sanctuary.
