I am new to "Find a Grave." I find it comforting to be able to find out where my beloved ancestors were buried when I never knew where they were buried before. I love the concept of "Find a Grave." It enables us to continue the family connection with our loved ones that are no longer with us. Thus far, I have found everyone that I have communicated with on "Find a Grave" to be very friendly and helpful. The photo volunteers have been awesome people that are eager to help locate a loved one's grave. It is encouraging to know that there are still good people in this world that just want to help others. "Find a Grave" is a virtual place to honor those that we respect and remember. I will close with this thought~ Our ancestors were the puzzle pieces that created the image of who we are today. Each piece of the puzzle enables us to view the whole picture of who we are and where we came from.
could we be related? Tara I have been doing some research into my family tree and I have come across a William Graves married to a Eliza Graves (Bunch) could William C. Graves and Lucinda Carter Graves be a relation? My great great grandfather was named Henry Miller and he was married to a Carrie Graves whose parents are Eliza Graves (Bunch) and William Graves. Could this be a relation? Thanks and any help would be appreciated.
RE: WILLIAM DANIEL LEROY HAINEY Hey, After I posted the photo I realized it was the wrong John Hainey! I deleted the photo as soon as I realized what I had done. Sorry about that. I should be headed out to Kurtz soon and will look for the right one. John (the other one) and Sarah are buried side by side. Their stones are very old and stick out due to most of the others being relatively new and they where on the corner, not lined up with the other graves. There is a third stone with them that is too worn to read. I wonder if that is John DL. I looked at all the stones and only saw the two Haineys. If I can locate it I will post it. Sorry for the mix up.
RE: W.H. & Manda Greene Tara -- Sorry, I don't know anything about W.H. or Manda Greene. I would have to guess that they might have been children since that is somewhat the usual case when names are on the sides of a stone like that, but I really don't know 100%. I wanted to go ahead and include them since the names were there.
Billy Carter I think you did not understand me on my note. It was my Grand-father that was raised by the people in the picture. They were Ezekiel & Elizabeth Linthicum. My grand-father was John J. Snow and he also worked the mill along with Ezekiel. My Dad was born in a one room log house next to the mill. His name was Burgess Snow. He and his dad are buried in the Carmichael Cemetery. This came from a story about the Hebron Church that was built on Billy Carter's proterty in Greene County, Indiana, close to the Monroe County Line in Indiana. "Billy Carter was born is old Virginia in 1783 and came to Greene County in the winter of 1817. He had purchased 80 acres for his home up in the wilds of Section 25, ESE on Dec. 13, 1817. At that date this would be a short walk up the creek to the 60.39 acres in which he purchased in February of 1830. His land laid on the creek and on both sides of the Monroe and Greene County line. In the 1840 he built his grist mill on this new purchase. He was an active member of the Hebron Church (White River Baptist Association) being moderating several years and living out his days on the creek, until the ripe old age of 92. This 60 acres marked the rebirth and new home site of the Hebron Church."
Old Carter Mill Memorial# 48440142. I saw that you had placed a flower on your Grand-father's Memorial lately and I thought you may be inerested in seeing the picture that I added today. I am the grand-daughter of John J. Snow. Our family had a lot to do with the Old Mill. The old people, in the picture, were people that raised him from a baby, Ezekiel Maxwell and Elizabeth James Linthicum. The little boy between them is my Uncle Emmett Snow.
