I wondered if you might be a contributor here! Too bad the MyFamily site is no more. One of my best adventures ever was visiting you and touring cemeteries. Currently working my Mays line and came on the Isaacs cemetery. You are one in a million Tom! Thanks for your dedication to the OCHGS!

Leroy V.
Thanks again. I sent you a private message as well, with my email. My mama corrected me to, Leroy V, Sr. is my 3rd Gr. Grandfather. =) The Leroy V in the Venable Homestead Cemetery is his son, Leroy, Jr. (1852-1904).

Thank you!
Appreciate the photo of my 6th great grandparents gravestone (Leroy Venable and Rachel McQueen Venable). Could you confirm that it was at the Flannery/Quillian Cemetery and not the Venable Family Cemetary? Find a grave has the same marker listed in three cemeteries there in Owsley Co. Thanks!

Tom, thank you again for finding Andrew Chandler's
grave and photo. It's good that Andrew and Malinda
are buried next to each other and one head stone.
It sure didn't take long to find Andrew's grave. I
was surprised to see the email when I went into my
computer. You did good. Thank you so very much.
Rawleigh Chandler.

Porter Headstones
Hi Tom,
I saw your note regarding more Porter Headstones. Are there headstones that do not have memorials set up yet? There are more members of this family that I have been searching for, and curious who the headstones may be? Also, saw your note re Jack Porter. I do not know at this time of him, but I am researching this family and may possibly run across him. I will keep in mind the name and if I do, I will send information your way? Do you have an ancestry tree? Also, I would love an invitation to Thank you! Georgia Smith Montoya (my mother is a Porter and these Porters are cousins)
