Find A Grave is a grave registry, not a genealogy site for recording your personal family history. I am willing to transfer memorials--but not those that I am related to, kin through marriage, or are friends of mine or their relatives. If you would like to have a memorial that I have entered transferred to you, Please Read the Find a Grave Guidelines, first to determine if the memorial is within the guidelines. If the memorial is within the Find a Grave guidelines, please state the exact relationship to the deceased when making a transfer request. I do not make bulk surname transfers. For those who wish to "collect" all of a certain surname, please consider creating a virtual cemetery.

I do make mistakes and I would appreciate being informed so that they can be corrected. If you have additional information that you would like added to a memorials, send it and I will consider it.

Bowden Graveyard Spring Hope
Do you know where the Bowden Family Graveyard is located and if there are other graves that have not been inventoried there. I am looking for a Bowden who died in Nash County and thought he might be buried at that cemetery. Thanks for any help you might be able to give me.

RE: George W. Bush and family
Thank you for the reply,
So we had the wrong cemetery.

We have Berryman relations on our Shepherd side, but they are buried in the Winchester KY, Cemetery.

Are you related to George Bush?

We will keep looking,
Thanks again for your help.

George W. Bush and family
We visited the cemetery on Mina Station Rd. behind a private home. I talked to the owners, she didn't know anything about Bush's being buried there. There were only Stone family markers there. Did I have the wrong place?
Do you have photos of the grave stones?
Please get back to me.

RE: Charlotte Hickman Judd
Great info! Most everyone buried in Missouri Cemetery is related. I'll do some looking to see if the info you shared with me links her to anyone there. Thank you so much for the great information!

Thank you for the edit suggestion for Mrs Judd's maiden name. May I ask, how did you find this info? Do you have any other info for her, or her family?

John Martin

John Martin (# 67109355), son of Valentine and Jane (Bridgewater) Martin of Cumberland County, Virginia, is my 5th great uncle. The Valentine Martin family history by John R. Martin provides information about this John Martin fighting with Daniel Boone.

When Col. Benjamin Logan and his men were fighting in Lincoln County, Kentucky in 1777, this John was living with his family in Goochland County, Virginia.

Some family researchers thought this John was a Second Lieutenant from Fluvanna County, Virginia but that person was the son of Henry and Sarah (Bryan) Martin and died in 1830.

Our Martin Family history goes back to New Kent County, Virginia. There's no connection with Captain John Martin of Jamestown who lost his teenage son, John, in 1607 - his only male heir.

I've researched a variety of records for each John Martin who fought in the Revolutionary War and none match my relative. Records from Daniel Boone don't exist but we know this John Martin followed Boone to Clark County, Kentucky.

Thank you for posting the memorial and would appreciate the update.
