Bio and Links
Bio Photo My sources for making memorials are
1. The old newspapers at Kentuckiana Digital Library Home
2. Lincoln County, Kentucky Genealogy
3. Rootsweb Presents Kentucky Death Records
4. Lincoln County, Kentucky Tombstone Inscriptions & 1850 Census by Shirley Dunn
(Memorials have been made for everyone listed in this book except for a few that had no death dates)
5. Bicentennial History of Waynesburg, Kentucky and Southern Lincoln County (Memorials have been made for everyone listed in this book except for a few that had no death dates)
6. Pulaski County KY Cemetery Records, 3 vols.

I include as much information on the memorials that I can find so others that are searching can determine if it is the correct person they are looking for. A memorial with name, birth & death dates isn't always enough information to determine if it's the right person you are looking for. Some birth dates I have taken from the age of a person in their obituary which isn't always correct and just because dates are written in stone doesn't always mean they are correct either. I have come across some obituaries that gives a different burial location than the tombstone inscription books or the cemeteries listed at Lincoln County Genealogy.

~~~~The newspaper images at Kentuckiana Digital Library are in the public domain and can be used on Find A Grave. They ask that credit be given to the Kentucky Digital Library as the source for the images. For those who want to use these newspapers go to Kentuckiana Digital Library Home and click on newspapers. ~~~

For the people that think you need a picture of the tombstone for every memorial - not everyone has a tombstone and this is not Find A "Tombstone." Sometimes the only way to Find A "Grave" is from an obituary. Many tombstones have been removed from cemeteries that were on farmland because the land was later used for farming and tombstones have been damaged or destroyed by farm animals and people. Some old cemeteries have been bulldozed so the land can be used for something else. I even read about a woman that removed a tombstone from one cemetery and put it in another cemetery. This is one of the reasons why I try to do as much research as I can on the memorials I make. Many contributors require proof of relationship before links are made. I consider birth, marriage, obituaries and family relationships that are included on my memorials as proof of relationship.

I am only notified when photo requests for tombstone pictures are fulfilled but not when others are added to the memorials and I "really appreciate" all of them BUT if they can't be read because they are covered with dirt, grass & leaves they are of little use. Please take the time to clean the bird poop, dirt, leaves & grass off so the stone can be presentable.

Aunt Thelma
Joyce, when did Richard's Aunt Thelma pass away? I think she was still alive when I left Ky. Sad, she was a very sweet lady!

Hello Joyce,

I thought you might have interest in this page;

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=tinsley&GSfn=alexander&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=69592754&df=all&

It shows a marker in West Virginia that seems to be the same gentleman you have listed in Kentucky. I believe he served the Confederacy as an assistant surgeon.

Thank you,

George

Joyce,
Thank you for posting my great grandmother's memorial. I have been trying to find her burial place for more than 10 years. Would you please transfer her to me.
