Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been an avid genealogist in Perry Co. for over 30 years. I have researched my family in Letcher, Perry, Breathitt, Magoffin, Leslie, and Owsley counties. I have research on the Campbell, Couch, Dixon, Combs, Cornett, Feltner, Williams, Whitely, Haney, Gullet and others that came into my family as I researched. I became a member of FAG while trying to find my grandfather's lost grave in Magoffin Co. My husband and I started taking pictures of the cemeteries in Perry Co. to help people find their lost loved ones. We are attempting to photograph the cemeteries in Perry county. I will consider transfers within the four Generation FAG guideline that include: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents and great grandparents. No transfers to aunts, uncles or cousins. Transfers must be within your direct generation. If any of my memorials need to be edited, please contact me using the edit button. Thanks

RE: Jay Draurghn
I think it is somewhat odd that no one can find his grave. Even descendants of Jay's have no idea. While he was estranged from his wife Hattie and from a lot of the Draughn's as well still seems strange.
According to my father who was born in Hindman (moved away at under 10 yrs old) Jay had two pearl handled guns when he was killed. The guns seem to have disappeared as well.
I read an article a few years ago that Jay was buried on "Town Mountain" but never found anyone who could tell me where that is. Probably no stone anyway.
Several people have told me that the Draughn cemetery in Hindman years ago used to extend all the way out to the road. But according to records when the state bought the land the cemetery was only the size it is now. My great grandmother was supposedly buried in 1913 there but no sign of her grave either.
Looks like Jay took a lot of stories with him when he passed

Jay Draurghn
Debra on find a grave told me you were checking into Jay Draughn. My great grandmother was the sister of Dolph Draughn ( one of the men that Jay killed)
I have never been able to locate a grave for him. the death certificate has one cemetery as to where his is buried and another written over the top of it.
As best I can tell one is Combs-Cornett and one is Draughn Cemetery. Neither one have a headstone for him. Newspaper articles say that the family of the man that shot Jay had Jay buried in one of their plots, but have no idea where that is

Lucy Napier
Greetings! Will you please transfer this memorial to my care. Lucy Sizemore Napier was my paternal grandmother. Thank you for all the fine work you do for Find A Grave, it is very much appreciated by those of us who cannot visit the graves of our deceased due to the great distance away that we live. I have deleted the duplicate memorials, as you requested, and thank you for bringing these to my attention.

RE: Karen Begley Turner
I have moved her to that cemetery. Thank you for creating the new one. Funeral home was a little misleading on cemetery.

Roberts family from Kentucky.
Happy Fourth of July everyone! I am researching the Roberts family from Kentucky and would really appreciate it if you could contact me through email for some more information. I am trying to connect a family tree together and the information you have already posted has already been extremely helpful in my search. My email is mccaffertymade@live.com
Thank you for your time,
Katie
