Harry H Akridge
Hello Judy,
Are you an Akridge? I am since Harry adopted me when I was about a year old. Unfortunately, I was left off of his memorial by his brother and sister-in-law who hated my mom. I am glad to know he hasn't been forgotten. I loved him very much and he is still in my heart as well as my daughters. She remembers her grandpa very well.

I can always remove a picture if you wish to keep the original memorial. Or if you have a picture. I keep copies of my pictures so replacing one not a problem for an original memorial.

If there is a pre-existing picture, I usually only add one if I cannot read the one there. Otherwise your pictures are generally readable. Admittedly my eyesight not what it used to be.

RE: Re: Harold Akridge #63956066
Thanks for your help, Judy!
I did the edit button for a couple of edits on my grandparent's memorials - but when it came to Harold's, I was just stumped.

I'm not sure what all the symbols on his headstone are, but that one diamond-shaped one with the green, on the upper right of his side of the headstone, is the patch for the 4th Infantry Division (I know this because it was also my unit when I was in the Army). You can see an oval-shaped heart in the middle of the symbols used to have his photo in it, but it was vandalized about a decade ago. The symbol on the bottom left is the Army's Combat Infantryman Badge. The one over that looks like a plow handle?? But he grew up in town, so I can't imagine that it's a farm thing. The one I really cannot identify is the bottom right - it looks to me like someone wearing a tank top, eating movie theater candy - and I know it's not!

Thanks again!

RE: Rose Family
Hi Judy,

I can't edit John's listing to remove his wife. The originator has to click on the relationships page for him and delete the spouse entry.

I think everything else looks good.

Judy, sorry it has take me so long in getting back to you. I have been under the weather just now getting back into things. I wanted to link Helen to her son Thomas W. Day 86810484 which you declined. I was wondering why. Since I have done research and talked with Thomas son and he has confirmed that helen is Thomas dad.

Amen Sister! This is my Mantra, too! :)

I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.

It's funny, recently I requested a transfer and on the manager's profile bio it simply said, "PAY IT FORWARD".

Then, she proceeded to NOT transfer to me, never replied to my request, deleted my message on her board (so she obviously read it), and then transferred it to some stranger with no ties to the person, and that new manager refuses to relinquish the memorial.

Unfortunately, my relationship is not by blood, so I cannot appeal to Find A Grave administrators.

So sad that people deny transfers when the person asking is able to adequately explain/define the relationship and upload photos that only someone close would have, and add family links and personal bios.

So sad. So much for "Pay it forward". Ha.

RE: JoAnna Bond # 154153359
They certainly are greener than my dead yard. I don't know what they are doing, but at another nearby cemetery, the flat marker was obscured by a thick layer of packed dirt. I had to stand on the marker and grind my heel into the dirt for some time to get it so I could brush it away. (I don't like to be disrespectful in this way but it seemed impossible to brush or wash the dirt away so the stone could be read.) I would not have said that marker had been moistened in quite some time to have the dirt so completely dry -- like cement -- all the way through, but the grass around it was green...

Hi Judy, Next time you're out at Lower Lake Cemetery, would you mind taking a newer photo of my Grandfather's headstone? The one I have on his memorial is from Grandma Fern's funeral, and I'd love one that has Grandpa George's death date inscribed on the stone. Many thanks! :)

Thank you for the additional picture of my father's headstone, and the transcription. I was wondering if Lower Lake Cemetery suffered any damage from the recent fires. Your picture shows me my father and grandparents' graves are undamaged. I truly appreciate that. Thank you!

RE: Heavenhill and Prunty
Hi Judy,

I do not have any first hand information where my 3rd great grandmother is buried. Perhaps this below will help From the Kentucky standard in 1900.

The Kentucky Standard Dec 15 1900 Vol 1 Number 1 - Page 3

Notable Burying Ground

There are a number of noteworthy old family burying grounds in the country surrounding Bardstown. One of the most interesting of these is located on the old Bryan Neal farm, near the tollgate on the Gilky Run pike. Within its precinct slumber some of the first pioneers of Nelson county, notably Bryan Neal and his wife, who came to Kentucky while it was still a part of Virginia. The graves of this couple are not marked by any stone, and the dates of their deaths cannot be ascertained but it is known they were very aged when they died. Others who are buried there and are directly connected with the Neal family are; Susan Heavenhill, born in 1783; died 1871, Elizabeth Price, born 1793; died 1865, Sarah Patterson, born 1786; died 1847. James Coleman, born 1805; died 1845. With the exception of the latter the above named were the children of Bryan Neal, Mr. Coleman, being his grandson. Besides these Wm. Heavenhill is buried there, together with his two children, Mrs. Anne Prunty and Miss Jane Heavenhill. These two ladies were far advanced in years, Miss Heavenhill being 81 years old.
