Please take some time to visit these people:

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4

"The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death." -Isaiah 57:1, 2

Joshua, I just for the 1st time found your note here.... About a week ago "G-aunt" Charlotte Ellender's granddaughter's (by Charlotte Ellender's son John Logan Dykes) husband Gordon Chaney gave me a call and I got to tell him about the pictures you shared with me which I'll be sharing with him and wife Rebecca Farmer Chaney (descendant of John Logan Dykes). Thanks many times over for all you do. Best regards, Drew Whitaker

p.s. Kentucky Explorer Magazine published one of the photos you shared here.

Hi. Joshua, thank you for your contributions.

One quick thing though, Gertie R. Whitaker was the SON of William P. Whitaker and Maggie Boyd Whitaker.

He was my GGUncle. Pleas update. Thank you!
