Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved cemeteries. As a child, I would take a flower to put in the hand of a statue of a child in our local cemetery.

I've climbed fences with my grandmother and mother on private property in search of family markers in the 1960s-1970s.

My master's thesis is entitled "Expressions of Grief in South Central Kentucky, 1870-1910" and includes a chapter about the cemeteries of Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Logan, Monroe, Simpson and Warren County, Kentucky. Lots of field research on cold winter days in the early 1980s contributed to that one.

I appreciate the efforts of my fellow volunteers!

Moses Howell Picture
You posted a picture of Moses Howell and brothers on Moses' grave info in Warren Kentucky. I am the descendant of his brother Eli. Where did you get the picture of Moses? I am hoping to find more information on the Howell family.

I also decend from the family of the Sam Duncan (Goodrum) Cemetery in Warren County. I was there in 2005 and posted pictures on here. I believe it was my 5 G Grandfather that built the Cabin there. I have 2 or 3 generations of grandparents buried there.
