RE: Bennetts
Hello Anna,
Please forgive my late reply!!!!!I enjoyed reading your lovely letter to me. I took a break from my research to take care of my mom. She has Dementia and it's been a tough year! She is from the Bennett branch. I've seen your name on some of the Missouri Memorials and I think you gave a few of them to me!

I see we share Susan Holt as our 3rd great grandmother and Abner Holt as our 4th great grandfather. My 2nd great grandfather Benjamin Bennett and your 2nd great grandmother Ann Catherine Bennett were sibling as I'm sure you know...Nice to meet a Bennett cousin!!!

I'm in contact with my mother's first cousin Carolyn Sapp Allee. My Great grandmother Hattie Bennett married a Basinger. Carolyn's mother was Hattie's daughter who married a Sapp.

I'm sorry to hear your story of Carolyn Cain. I have old letters written by Willis Bennett to my Great Grandmother Hattie. My collection of photo's and letters from the Bennett's are priceless to me!

I would love to share stories and info with you. I'm always seeking info on the Holts and Bennett's!!

I'm back on Find A Grave and would love to correspond with you.

I'm currently researching My Basinger branch... Very diffulcult because of the misspelling in the US Census of Baysinger and Basinger.
My Great grand father is buried at Dry Fork Church but he died in the depression and Hattie had no money to buy a stone marker. The mentally handicap groundskeeper thought he was helping by pulling up all the plastic grave markers. From what I learned, Dry Fork Church burned and so did his record of being buried there. His parents and brother are there. I would love to know how to locate him....One of my to do task. I want to make a trip up to Callaway soon...Possibly early this fall.
I look forward to hearing back from you!

Cousin Tricia

Marsha Williams Byrd of Missouri
I was thinking of you the other day. Hope things are good with you. I transferred the Memorial to you. I will be interested to read what you add. I like to read about the ones who came before us.
Sandi is in the University ICU. She is having trouble getting air in and carbon dioxide out. She is strong and I believe she will get well enough to come home but the doctors and respiratory folks say one of these times she won't come out of it. She is only 61. I tell my family members constantly the outcome of smoking and none will listen even though the evidence is right before them. Pray for her please. Thank you

RE: John Williams
Wow, you are a real detective! I would be interested in seeing some of the documentation once you get everything pinned down. I don't know anything about Susan, other than verifying where she was buried when we traveled to Missouri. It must have been one of your other contacts who suggested Susannah was her mother, because I didn't have anything about that. Thanks for keeping me posted on your progress.

RE: William Strother
Hello Anna,

I believe it is William Strother, his wife Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman and his wife Susanna Coleman. However, there is no writing left on the four tombstones - it has weathered away, which would seem to indicate that the tombstones are very old. They are located on private property in a small grove of trees in front of our house at 475 Arrowhead Springs, Versailles, KY.

This is a quote from page 60 of the Register of the State Historical Society, Vol. 19, No. 55 (January 1921). (notes in parentheses are mine).

"I am informed that the old homestead (of Susanna Hawkins Coleman - daughter of Thomas Coleman) is now the property of J.A. Eaton (our property is part of what was formerly the Eaton property based on late 1800's/early 1900's county maps). I am quite sure that the remains of William Strother, his wife, Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman, and his wife Susanna, and perhaps a number of descendants were buried on the Eaton farm."

According to our neighbour, who has lived here since the land was divided, the foundations of the old home were on a creek bed about 100 yards from the cemetery. I have not had the opportunity to explore and see if I could find the foundation stones.

Cave Family Cemetery
My understandings are: The Cave Family Cemetery, as located by the GPS Coordinates given, may not be in its exact original location, but is close, and the now totally obliterated William Family Cemetery has been included virtually (if that's the correct terminology). Should the latter be explained? You say, "It is now a contractor's open lot.", but apparently some folks think there is something to be seen. Perhaps those making photo requests should be informed that it will never happen. You also say, "Only three stones were identifiable but they are not now in place." Where are the stones and is there any thought of resetting them in the "contractor's open lot"?
Viewing all CFC interments indicates there is a photo for Col John Williams (1778 - 1829) Memorial# 98431224. Clicking on the link, there is no photograph. This may give some folks false hope. You might be interested in Loucks Cemetery (#2594137), Wayne, Steuben County, NY that I created last summer. It's a similar situation except for combining the Williams family.

HTML & Memorial Transfers
I have copied and pasted below the HTML programming to return links in the bio section of Find A Grave Memorials. One of two things will happen when I mash the "Leave This Message" button: 1) the programming won't be changed or 2) more likely Find A Grave will act on the programming and return garbage. If lucky 1) will happen, but it may not be clear how to proceed.
Text Find A Grave Visitor Sees

Just checked and found four Memorial transfer requests sent to you know who on March 15 using SAC's. In doing so, my Contributor number and email address are there, as well as all remaining necessary info. I don't understand sending to info@__. Do you mean I have lots of good family info I want to enter and it would be so much easier if I had control to do it myself. The only response I've had from this machine or person was when I pointed out a duplicate Memorial. That got "merged".

I was looking at some of your photo credits and would like to know how difficult it was to get T.V.F.T.H. to transfer Memorial# 58366994 to you. Do you know that person? He/she has most of the Memorials in my mother's family cemetery (Rohrbach) north of California, MO. Most buried there are relatives and I'd love to maintain their Memorials. You created Memorial# 100785831 that is now maintained by Robert H. The bio says "Two of the children, Ann Elizabeth & Thomas lived in the world and have Find A Grave memorials to be found here." Do you know how to provide links in a bio so folks can get to those Memorials quickly? I've been schooled in how to do that.
