Bio Photo "Let us before we die, gather up our heritage, and offer it to our children." Will Durant, "The History of Civilization"
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

RE: Dicey Stanley

I looked at this it
come from Ancestry we Have nothing else on it. It just sits there.

Name: Joseph Johnson
Gender: Male
Spouse: Dicey Stanley
Spouse Gender: Female
Marriage Date: 11 Apr 1812
Marriage County: Wilkes
Marriage State: North Carolina

From all of my research the records show that Joseph was born in SC around 1790 and married Dicey Ann Stanley in NC in 1812.

Migrated to Laurel County Ky somwhere around 1820 or a little before;

married Phebe Young somewhere between 1825 and 1830 and died around 1836.

I find his wife Phebe indicated in records as being married to him and then she is indicated as being widowed and later with children by a Wyatt secondly and thirdly with Allen Hicks as the ages indicated the time span on the children.

From my research:

Spouse 1: Dicey Stanley

Spouse 2: Phebe Johnson

The records do not reflect his middle name however this is not uncommon.

I have yet to locate his birth record yet but I am still working on it.

I am still researching this couple.

RE: Leston Hill
Leston is in Sec K, Lot 430 is a large lot, full of babies. That section is oval, the front part is KA, then K, then the back of the oval is KB. I got the list of everyone buried in lot 430. In the cemetery book that was read back in the 70's, there are interment records book 1 and this is where I find all these babies. No one at the cemetery office has ever seen this interment record book so have no idea what has happened to it. Kay

RE: Angeline Pike

Linie has a daughter living in Bishopville, S.C. her name is Bonnie Pike Hibbard. Bonnie married my great uncle Lawrence Hibbard. Bonnie's sister Ellen married my great uncle Burgin Hampton. Linie's sister Daisy Johnson married Russell Hampton. So I have quite a connection to her family. Bonnie is 93 years old and lives by herself, she is in very good mind, if you would ever like to contact her I can send you her address and phone number. My mother talks to her several times a year. If I can be of help finding any of them please let me know. Good luck in your search.

RE: Clarence H. Stevens
Hi Gaye,
No, sadly I don't know anything about Clarence just what I can glean from the records, which you probably have. I did not know him personally, and this is a bit of a collateral relation, to even have family stories. On the 1930 census, he is listed as a laborer in a warehouse. In1940, he was working as an attendant at a filling station, in Laramie County. In 1954, he was working as a repairman at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne.
Sorry I'm not of much help.

Orville W. Garland
Orville was the nephew of my G grandmother Fannie Garland Hampton Hicks. Orville's parents were George Bert Garland and Mayme Dezarn Garland. Bert was the son of Jarvis Garland and Polly Ann Proffitt Garland. I have some photos of this line, but none of Orville. If I can be of further help, leave me a message or email me at

Wayman Burial Ground
It's taken a couple of years, Gaye, but I now know where this is! You were right--it's in the middle of a woods with lots of poison ivy! I hope you have a few years to wait--I'm taking graveyard reconstruction classes and am pushing the Henry County Cemetery Commission to let me work some on Wayman. All the stones are down, but they still think it could be restored. More later re this, I hope.. Martha

Re: Section A Lot 607 - Hiram Josleyn

There is not a marker for Hiram or any other Josleyn (or any other variation of the surname). However, there I went ahead and photographed everyone in the lot with a marker.

Here are the individuals buried in Section A Lot 607 according the Cave Hill's database.

H. George S Whipple - has a marker
Mary Joesselyn Whipple - no marker
Edward Alonzo Reeves - has a marker
Alice Preston Mason - has a marker
Margie Heywood Mason - has a marker
Marian Caspari Mason - has a marker
Robert Mason - has a marker
Hiram Josleyn - no marker

I know this doesn't help one bit with spelling because I just added another variation by finding Mary Joesselyn Whipple.

My mother's maiden name is Goelzer. You can imagine the variations with name. I feel your frustration. haha

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Isbell request
Hi Gaye,
A friend and I headed out this evening to find Isbell cemetery. This cemetery was read in 1973 and the memorials have the same info that the cemetery book has. At that time you had to cross a pasture and go through briers to get there. It is worse now. The pasture is not passable and the land owner said we could come back when we had more light and he would take us back there. He also told us most of the stones are down. This is mostly likely why there is no photo of the cemetery. We will do our best to find what you are seeking. Ancestry trees do have some info on this family.
