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!
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.

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 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.
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.
