Bio and Links
I'm a 6th generation Oregonian. Currently live near Houston. Family History researcher since I was 13. My grandpa told us we were related to Queen Victoria and that hooked me in. However, that was a good family story only!
Social History is a passion of mine. Tromping through cemeteries, digging in the dirt for arrowheads, old photos, etc. I'm just hooked!

Glad to be able to help! When did the 2nd "e in Gillette become invisible as well as silent? :-)

RE: Houston's in Kentucky
Actually, all I know is that it's somewhere off the Leesburg Pike in Scott County, KY. I believe that it has been declared an historical site, so the state of Kentucky might be able to give you the exact location.

Regards, James

RE: Marshall Cemetery in Nelson Co., KY
OH !! Thought you were looking for the 'last century' (1900s) as you posted in your first message. So, the 'William' is the lost brother of John Marshall (1740)...We knew of him, but little else. Yes, a connection...My late spouse was descendant of John Marshall on her Mother's side, through son Mark Marshall and grandson Daniel Marshall (who came to Indiana after the death of his first wife, Deborah Chambers, who was also a granddaughter of John Marshall). I'd sure be willing to trade information on the lines with you via Email if you'd like.

RE: Marshall Cemetery in Nelson Co., KY
Trying to connect your Marshall's to ours....Do you have Birth/Death dates for John and Deborah Marshall or William and Jane Bruce Marshall ?

RE: Marshall Cemetery in Nelson Co., KY
I've done some checking today, and can not find a burial listing in GenWeb or anywhere else for this Cemetery. Find-A-Grave has 67 internments listed, with the earliest being 1952. From what I can tell, this seems to be a newer Cemetery.

Which branch of Marshall are you descendant of ?

RE: Marshall Cemetery in Nelson Co., KY
Hello, Joyce Ann....Nice to meet you.

Are you referring to John Marshall (1740-1801) and Mark Marshall (1765-1823) by any chance ?

These Marshall's were Ancestors of my late Wife.

If so, there doesn't appear to be any stones for them, and in fact they were probably buried on land that Mark Marshall owned, a 376-acre farm located at the Rolling Fork River and Younger Creek, about 6 miles NW of New Haven, near the Nelson/Hardin County line.

Matilda S Bugbee in Moulton Hill Cemetery, Moulton MA
It was kind of you to leave a flower and a note on the page for this individual. It is indeed a very sad event when a child dies and it is nice that they are remembered. I just find it unsettling that you speculate that she died of child abuse when there is no conclusive evidence that I was able to find. I do know that her parents Parker Bugbee Sr. and his wife Lavinia (nee: Bradway) did have 12 children that I could document over a 24 year span and 6 or 7 of them died in infancy or childhood. (The remaining all seemed to live to appreciably old age, 50 - 99 yrs). There are gravestones for most of these children so presumably their parents thought it important enough to remember them in that way. Childhood mortality rates were unfortunately high during this time period so I think it is impossible to conclude exactly why these children did not survive. If you know of any source materials relating to their deaths or if there were official accusations or charges brought against their parents, I would be interested to know of it. As I said, I am glad that you left a token of appreciation for little Matilda S Bugbee, I just find it kind of inappropriate that you speculatively accuse my ancestors of child abuse without any real proof. - Allison

Eleanor Davis
There are 80 DAVIS buried in Lone Fir cemetery. Three of them are buried in Section 28. Cora #58242224 and George #58242099. Neither are within 50-60 feet of Eleanor. Amelia Davis #58242152 is approximately the same distance away, across the road in Lot 26.
