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: Rebold
I assume you've also run across the name Peter Rebold, who was an undertaker in Cincinnati at the end of the 19th century. I see his name frequently in connection with Walnut Hills burials.

RE: Washington Owens, East Salem Cemetery, Laurel County
Slight change of subject. It could be the Seaborn Monroe Hart, # 56989660 family buried in Hart Cemetery, Bleckley County, Georgia might be related to my Harts in Ashe County, NC and Whitley/Knox, KY that in my opinion likely came from South Carolina.
For what it is worth, Seaborn's father was Hardy Hart, 52979530 and his grandfather, Marmaduke Hart,
20318136, supposedly from Edgecombe County, SC.
Nobody seems to have any idea who Marmaduke's parents were.
Of course, there is only a tiny bit of DNA that might (just maybe) show a connection to my Peter SR Hart # 42738289.

RE: Washington Owens, East Salem Cemetery, Laurel County
Thank you for the information.
I have a number of family from Knox/Whitley/Laurel that also served in the 7th KY Inf.
There seems to be a lot of Unknown markers in East Salem Cemetery. I suppose any of them might be Ann Comstock Hatfield, Ruben and Fannie Hatfield Owens.
Just being Hatfields, who knows what might have happened to their headstones if they ever had any.
In terms of family feuds, the Turner/Sowder feud in South East Kentucky was much bigger then the Hatfield/McCoy feud. It just not get the same press coverage.

Washington Owens, East Salem Cemetery, Laurel County
I am wondering if Washington is the same listed in 1850 Census, Laurel County, Kentucky likely as a son of Reuben Owens born 1817, KY?

Reuben Owens M 33 Kentucky
Fanny (Hatfield) Owens F 32 Kentucky
Joseph Owens M 20 Kentucky
Hannah Owens F 17 Kentucky
Larkins Owens M 16 Kentucky
Washington Owens M 12 Kentucky
S Ann Owens F 9 Kentucky
Evaline Owens F 6 Kentucky
John Owens M 5 Kentucky
Benjamin Owens M 3 Kentucky
Lilly Owens F 0 Kentucky

I am looking to see where Rueben and his wife Francis "Fannie" Hatfield Owens might be buried as well as her mother Clara "Ann" Comstock Hatfield.
"Ann" appears to have died Dec. 07, 1875 in Laurel County, Kentucky at the age of 95. Ann was living with her daughter Francis "Fannie" Hatfield Owens, wife of Reuben Owens and her son Nelson Hatfield.
Fannie's father was Stanley Hatfield, 1782-1827, supposedly buried in Harts Cemetery, Corbin, KY.

Samuel Patton Rice - Grace Catherine Johnson

William Rice

Billy Gene Rice ????

Could this be Son of William Dan Rice.

The news paper O bit has Just William.

If this is our bunch Billy Gene Rice would fall under Samuel Patton Rice Sept 12 1906 "Ky" - Nov 7 1975 "Michigan" and Grace Catherine Johnson Sept 10 1910 Ky - Jan 18 1991 "Ohio"

I recall that Stella Rebold's stone was the only readable one. I took a general shot last year; not sure if I uploaded it though.

RE: REBOLD family in Mount Washington Cemetery
Gaye, I am glad I was able to help. I am not sure if the Emma listed with the other children is the same as Emma B. She died 9 years before Frank and maybe was buried in a single plot but was listed with the other children on their grave stone. I don't know if the single is Emma's because it is mostly buried but it is plot 27. The two graves are across the driveway from each other.
You can go to Mt. Washington Cemetery website and check their indexes. Search their name and you will also find a map of the cemetery at the bottom of the page.
Margaret died very young (childbirth ?) and maybe Albert remarried and is buried somewhere else. I checked Guardian Angel and Mt. Moriah Cemetery records and no Rebold is listed. Good luck with your search. If you need anything else, let me know.
