RE: mount pisgah
I have no map of the cemetery and it seems that only the large, active cemeteries still do have maps. Many plats of the older ones are long gone. The cemetery book that was published in 1982 shows Robert buried in Row 9, Grave #12. I know this is not much help but it appears his headstone, photographed in July 2011, is a good one and should still be in fine shape! Sorry I can't provide you with more.

RE: mount pisgah
I believe there is much confusion as to what these very old cemeteries are now called and unfortunately are confused with ones which no longer exist. This cemetery, shown as Reed Cemetery on maps, is what they call Mt. Pisgah as well. The Historical Society President and I talked about this and we feel the original Mt. Pisgah (aka Mud Corners) which was located northwest of 950E and 275S, Milford Twp., LaGrange County, no longer exists. The village of Mt. Pisgah was located at that intersection. Reed Cemetery (aka Caton) is northwest of 950E and 350S, south of where the village of Mt. Pisgah once was. So to make a long story short, on Find A Grave, Mt. Pisgah and Reed are one in the same, to the best of our knowledge. There is no sign located at this cemetery.

RE: Chaffins Cemetery
Another suggestion would be to contact The Floyd County Times Newspaper to see where their archives are kept. I know that they used to be archived at the Prestonsburg Community College. I was able to visit the library and go through the microfilm several years ago. They could look to see if he had an obituary published. Given the nature of his death, I'm sure that there would have been a story or two about him also.

RE: Chaffins Cemetery
In looking around, I don't think that the website is active anymore and Rootsweb changed the links so you can't get to the home page for the menu. Here is the link to the page with all of the cemeteries listed by township. The links to each cemetery seems to be working so you should be able to access them. It's a shame, that site has a TON of information on it. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kyfloyd/flcem.htm

RE: Chaffins Cemetery
Hi Troy,
Sorry for the late reply. You asked me if I could help you locate resources to find where your grandfather was buried. Here's a fantastic resource that I used many years before Find A Grave. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kyfloyd/Knott_Co_Cemeteries/chaffinscem.htm It is a website of shared resources by many researchers and volunteers. To my knowledge, nearly every cemetery in that area is transcribed on this website. The Chaffins' family cemetery that my family is in transcribed there. They also have a Chaffins' cemetery in Garrett, KY and a Chaffin cemetery in Mousie, KY. If I may ask, what what your grandfather's name? If he's related, I may have some information about him that I could share with you.

RE: Omedia Deatons/Deaton
I was confused also about the name on the stone. This is Charles/Charlie Deaton and his wife, Omedia Allen Deaton. I know who these people were and their last name was Deaton. He was pastor of the Wabacco church of God in Walkertown. They lived at the end of the bridge in Walkertown. Could you please add the maiden name to Omedia? Thanks you, Sandra

RE: louisa robinson
The cemetery book for Huron County, Ohio, indicates that Louisa is buried sharing the gravestone with Lawrence Robinson. As you can see on the photo, there is a place for another name on the stone. Don't know if her name was on there at one time, or whether it was just never added. On the back of the stone, the inscription reads "James M. Brown 1919-1967 Brother"
