Regarding transfers:
I believe that relatives and friends should have any
memorials I maintain transferred to them, regardless
of what the guidelines are. Of course if I am a closer relative, the memorial will not be transferred. If I am a more close friend, it will not be
transferred. If the memorial is of a close friend of mine, and the requester is a distant relative, I might not transfer. Please, please use the edit tab on the memorial you wish transferred to you.
Also, I may ask for some proof of any claims of your relationship or friendship. You'll never know if I will transfer a memorial unless you ask.

Childers and Central State Cemetery
I saw Melissa Byrd's message regarding the location of Central State Cemetery. Did you respond to her and if so where is it?

Mays Cemetery
Thanks for the note. I just purchased a new pair of boots for the express purpose of wearing them in cemeteries. Yes, some cemeteries can be quite overgrown and I am always worried about snakes. I usually just wind up with TICKS..yikes and that is quite bad enough! Thanks again for the information DAM.

I noticed you had taken the photo of the cemetery. Can you give me some idea of location please. Are you from this area? Thanks, Diane

RE: Armilda Childers
Awe, Kenny. I'm sorry about that. I hope they reconsider. There's not much to do and no reason they couldn't/shouldn't do the transfers. Very sad.

Also, very sad about what happened to great great grandma Armilda. I think she wasted away in Central State for going on three years. She finally just gave up. It was probably loneliness and a broken heart that killed her in the end. She wasn't abandoned by her family, but there wasn't much that people could do back then - no nursing homes or hospice care and such. It was just the way it was. I feel so bad for her and also for her daughter and granddaughter - all my mothers.

Thank you for the information. I will give it to my brother, who is in Louisville now. Will make my pilgrimage from Virginia to visit the cemetery as soon as I can.

And thank you for all that you do! I wish you the best. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you in return.

Yes, please transfer her memorial to me. She is my great, great grandmother.

Thank you for taking care of her for us!

Larkin Guy
Thank you for contacting me about Larkin Guy's memorial. I am so sorry that I did not get back to his memorial to add dates/places. I have done so now.

My connection to this family is through two of his sons who married distant relatives of mine.

RE: Armilda Childers
You may transfer her record to me if you like, but it's not important. I'm just so glad to finally find her grave! She's my great great grandmother.

Now that I've found her, would love to know how to get to the cemetery. Also, is there still a caretaker for the graves? There are no instructions on the record. If I do get the directions, I would add them. If I can get her a marker, I will do that too.

Thanks so much for what you do!

RE: Carrie (Wright) Napper/ Napier

Thanks for the transfer offer, but there's no need for that. I was just thankful I found your memorial for her, so it helped me make sure I had the correct person. Sometimes there are more than one person with the same name and it can be tricky.

Thanks again!

You left me a request to add to the memorial of this person. In doing this I discovered that mine was duplicate and I deleted it. The cause of the duplication is that there are two Cave Hill Cemeteries - Cave Hill and Cave Hill National. There are already memorials in Cave Hill National for Catherine and her husband Frank J. and many other family members.

Would you like me to transfer her memorial to you? I received your edit request and processed it. I did notice that you have several Rafferty (with the "r") memorials that you manage.
