Please read the Find a Graves rules on adding
obituaries and Pictures from Funeral Homes. The copyright law applies to these. Just because you mention where you got the information does not make it lawful. Accounts are closed everyday for breaking their rules. You can be sued for breaking the copyright law.

This is what is on the Find a Grave site under the frequently asked question on your contributors page.

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Please do NOT add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed. [Top]
 

I will not link to a unknown burial location as Find a Grave does not want them made. If they have not been located in eons and years you are not going to find one in 30 days.

Virtual Flowers and Notes
 
How do I leave a flower/note for someone listed on Find A Grave?
First, go to the record to which you wish to add flowers and/or a note. There will be a box on the right hand side that says "Leave flowers and a note for this person". Just click on that box and follow the steps. (Note: you must be registered as a member and logged in to be able to leave flowers and notes.) We want Find A Grave to remain a place of respect and remembrance, just like a real cemetery.
Do not leave derogatory or politically charged notes. Inappropriate notes will be removed, and individuals who continue to leave derogatory or politically charged notes will have their account closed. Additionally, biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower. Limit flowers to no more than one flower per memorial per day. [Top]

Morning Anita,

Would you please delete this picture from this headstone. 125509603 Helen and them have just repaired the headstone.

Thanks,

Margery was a granddaughter to George Davis. I am not on Facebook and my Family Research is on My Heritage.

RE: Katherine STRINGER DAVIS
I tried the Owensboro Obit search and found no listings for Katherine DAVIS.

George L DAVIS is buried in the Pleasant Hope Church, Calhoun, McLean, Kentucky cemetery. Perhaps Katherine is there?

I tried following George’s descendants to find Margery L SETTLE (who sent the letters to Western Kentucky) or Miss Cora D. DAVIS of Utica, KY (in 1969) who has the original letter. I thought I might could find a living relative who may could shed some light. I struck out with both…

Regarding your question about Iglehearts buried at Poplar Grove - I have not been there and will have to check it out as there are some Igleheart graves I have yet to find.

Thanks again for your help!

RE: Katherine
The letter I have is a copy of the letter from Jacob Weaver DAVIS to his brother George L DAVIS (Apr. 4, 1862) written from Pittsburg Landing (site of Union supply and hospital following the Battle of Shiloh). The letter came to me from a family member who obtained the copy from the Western Kentucky University Manuscripts & Folklife Archives. They were kind enough to send a copy of the original as well as a typed transcript.

In looking back at the letter, there is a cover letter from Margery Settle (granddaughter of George) to Western Kentucky dated June 10, 1969 who describes the location of the original letter and sends a copy of it to Western Kentucky. So, I think we have the same letters.

Weaver described being distraught after Katherine’s death in January and how he sent Adaline to George while he joined the army. He thanked George for taking care of Weaver and Katherine DAVIS’ daughter Adaline while Weaver was away fighting. He asked George to place a suitable marker on Katherine’s grave. He described the horror of the battle (he was stationed across the river and was not in the actual fighting). Weaver died a month later from Typhus while stationed at Pittsburg Landing and is buried there.

So, all of this leads back to the question of where Katherine STRINGER DAVIS is buried. She is not with her parents, Robert and Nancy STRINGER, in Cumberland Pres. Cemetery in Sacramento, unless she is one of the markers we were unable to read. You found the DAVIS family cemetery in Buel with Weaver and George DAVIS’ parents, but they were the only two graves listed there. Could she also be there?

RE: Katherine
I have the letter he wrote to George but was unaware of the letter to Marge Settle. I would be interested in it!

Thanks!

Anita:

Thanks for the info concerning the genealogy sources that I can try. I am from Alabama. My cousins and I made our first genealogy trip to McLean Co. in early April. We found several graves of our ancestors and met several distant cousins. It was a great trip and a beautiful area!

We also went to Calhoun to the genealogy resource center and met some very helpful ladies who gave us info to assist our searches.

I compiled what we found and am working on the missing pieces.

Jacob Weaver DAVIS is buried in the National Military Cemetery at Shiloh. I have been to his grave.

RE: Davis Family Cemetery, Buel, KY
Are you a descendent of the Davis family? My line goes down through Adaline down the Igleheart family.

We may have some other common ancestors and can share some info that could help one another. Heck, it is always good to meet up with distant cousins!

Thank you for the information on Adeline DAVIS IGLEHEART. We have photos of her and know where she and her husband John Johnson IGLEHEART are buried (Cumberland Pres. Cemetery in Sacramento, KY). They are down the hill from Adeline's grandparents' graves. Who we are missing is Adeline's mother, Katherine STRINGER DAVIS (Dec. 29,1827 - Jan. 4, 1862).

Any help you could provide locating where she is buried would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again!

I was thrilled to find your mapping of the Davis Family Cemetery outside Buel, McLean, KY. Jacob and Mary DAVIS buried there are my 4X great grandparents. I am having trouble finding their daughter-in-law, Katherine STRINGER DAVIS who died Jan. 4, 1862. Her husband Jacob Weaver DAVIS wrote a letter to his brother George L DAVIS following the battle of Shiloh, asking George to place a marker on Katherine's grave. Weaver left his daughter Adeline with George when he joined the Union army following Katherine's death.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
