Any photos, bios and or other information that I have entered is avaialble for free use - no paid only websites. I would perfer that credit is given, but I put those materials and images here to be both saved for the future and to be used.
The web site offers date calculations for many of those little genealogical problems and more.
SO much of what is placed on Find A Grave is searchable, but in order to assist others in their research, I also use

Disasters strike us all, and it helps to put family moves into context when they abruptly move, relocate or - frankly - just disappear!

I also note to Find A Grave when I can find an applicable memorial.

Please take a look, it's an interesting site.
In the eastern United States you can often "discover" old cemeteries by the daffodils.

Daffodils are not a feast for deer, they multiply and spread on their own and were often the flower of choice to plant at gravesites.

And I love the sunny, bright daffodil, reminding me the long winter will soon be over and I can get out again to seek and document ancestors - both my own and for others living too distant to be there in person.

If I have "planted" a daffodil on a memorial, it is one which I have directly touched or made an addition.

My Find A Grave 'anniversary' date is 12 June 2007

Hello there,
Good to see you.
Not much going on here.
I have been very busy and not had a lot of time for my self.
Went to visit Ky and took a few pictures of New Salem Cem.
I will be working on Pike and Philpot as soon as I get a free moment or two.

Mr Pike is as you go in to Cemetery and is in a row of Philpot's and I think He just looks to be out of place where he is.

I have not looked at mom's tree on this one yet.

RE: Martha Keen and Martha Johnson

Grandfather: Hiram "Newton" Johnson.
Henry F. Johnson & Martha "Caroline" Cornett.
Hiram B. Johnson & Martha "Patsy" Keen.
Joseph Johnson & Phoebe Young.

I suspect that many researchers have certain facts intermixed between my Hiram and Rev. Hiram.

Schwegler family
Thank you for all your work on Victor "vic" Schwegler family! Your work has been very helpful with filling in information I did not have.

Family records say that Victor and his first wife Mary had a daughter that should be buried with them. Her name is Mary Schwegler born 26 Jan 1862 and died 16 Feb 1866 of typhoid fever like her mother and brothers. Have you found any records for her?

RE: McDaniel Cem

Good morning there.
I will be in here for a little while today.
Thanks for all the info I love getting it.

This couple is in McDaniel Cem.

Lucy Lincks Johnson 7513820
R. Boyd Johnson 7513819

Moms uncle William Ray (Bill) took her to this cemetery back a few years before he died, And he told her where all the Johnson, Bowlings and the Roark bunch over there was resting.

Mom can remember the stones but not what her uncle bill told her about them, So I have to piece it all together again.

From what Mom says the Johnson and Bowlings tie real close to her grand parents in this McDaniel Cemetery.

I am going to try my best to get moms pictures back in the McDaniel Cem over the next few days.
and of course send edits and corrections as I go a long.

This week alone over 50 people have been fixed from the edits mom and I have sent out over a 3 month's time span.

RE: Lou Ann Buttery/Buttree

We on this end will keep looking for this bunch.

Mom says if her memory is up to speed that this bunch ran a grocery store near Pistol Creek.
some where past the old Dan Cup Grocery.
She thinks it was a big 2 story building on a corner and maybe there was a post office there at some point. SHE is thinking real hard and asking family questions.

She say she will be back out there this spring and see if the building is still there She does know the Johnson Cemetery is just past Wyatts Chapel Cem on left hand side of the same road.
