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

Can You Help?
Hello,
My name is Dave Spencer. My email address is: Spenbus14@gmail.com.

I am searching for information about my grandmother, Elizabeth Jones(Campbell), born 1872-73.
She married my grandfather, Fred B. Jones, in 1894 in Louisville, Ky. Prior to that she lived with a family in Louisville named Greene, perhaps adopted perhaps not for approximately 5-10 years.

I believe that her natural parents may have been William B. and Polly Fields Campbell of Perry County, Ky. Polly and William are buried in the Campbell(Yerkes) Cemetery

The 1880 U.S.Census shows Polly and William living in Perry County with their five children. Elizabeth is eight and the only girl. The 1900 U.S. Census shows the family living in Forked Mouth with eight sons but no Elizabeth.

I have not found any information about my grandmother after 1880 in Perry County.
Could she be my grandmother and was she given away by Polly and William

Can you help me find information in Perry County? We will be traveling through Hazard on September 24th.

If you can help us, I would appreciate it very much.

Sincerely,

Dave

RE: Campbells of Perry County
Thank you for taking the time to find the Campbells. I think you have the right ones. I will be making the connections with Luther. If you should locate Nettie's burial place, please let me know. Thank you so very much!!!

Campbells of Perry County
I am looking for Luther and Nettie Napier Campbell from Perry County. They had these children that I know of...Charles Hiram, Ernest, Billy Ray, George Edward, and Marjorie Winfred Ritchie, all of whom, are deceased as of 2005. Living at that time are Steve Campbell, Martha Eades, Mary Kay Walters, Bobby Jean Sellars, and Elizabeth Marshburn. George Edward is buried in the Blue Grass Memorial Gardens and Marjorie in Camp Nelson National Cemetery. Would you know where the parents are buried?? Thanks

Henry Feltner, memorial #145426623
In the biographical information you gave for this Henry Feltner you list that he is from Perry County. With all due respect, there are 10 Perry counties in the U.S.A. To which were you referring? Thanks for clearing this up. Respectfully, ~JT~

RE: Betty Wooten
I'm pretty sure Betty Wooten is Elizabeth (Betty) Eversole Campbell. She was the daughter of Irvine Eversole and Elizabeth Stacy. The birth and death dates are the same I have listed for her and show up on several genealogy sites. She was married to Garrett Campbell until his death in 1932. I've yet to figure out where the name Wooten comes in. Betty would be my 4th great aunt. I'm descended through her brother James.

Betty Wooten
On Betty Wooten's memorial (78687835) you have posted a picture of a tombstone that is the wrong lady. The stone is a picture for Martha Jackson. I tried to use the edit tab to send correction, but the memorial owner told me to contact the person who posted the picture. I've been doing research and was trying to determine if Betty Wooten is Elizabeth (Betty) Eversole. Thanks, K.L. Rhodes

Whitaker Ancestor
I found the photo of Eli & Mammie Whittaker that you posted on the Find A Grave page for Gross Cemetery. Eli & Mammie are related to me via my maternal line. I would love to know where you obtained the photo.
Would also like to know if you have discovered any data on Alexander Shepherd's wife - Cassie? We have one photo and family story that she was part indian. Any thing you know about Cassie Couch would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your time responding to my request.
