Bio and Links
I have been tracing the various branches of my family tree and my spouse's for around 35 years now, and have always had a keen interest in small family cemeteries.

On frigid cold winter nights I transcribe burial records to Rattlesden Churchyard, in Suffolk County, England. This information comes from, "Notes on the Church & Parish of Rattlesden, by J. R. Olorenshaw.

On the inside: Only 200 copies of this work have been printed, of which this is No. 174

Printed 1900

Price 10s. 6d. nett

I tend not to change spellings in this work, to modern day spellings. We're the ones who changed it, not them.


If I ask a member of find-a-grave to link children to parents I always have sources. Just ask.

My goal, as far as a family historian, is to link together my ancestors and their progeny, down to the present day. (Excluding the living)

My research is concentrated in; North Carolina: for Alleghany, Surry, Yadkin, Stokes, Forsyth, Rockingham, Alamance, Gaston, Union, Buncombe and a few coastal counties.

Pennsylvania: for Wayne, Pike, Lackawanna, Montgomery, Northampton, Berks, Northumberland, Montour, Monroe, Lycoming, Columbia, and Allegheny.

Virginia: Floyd, Patrick, Henry, Nelson, Henrico, Fluvana, Elizabeth (defunct), Norfolk, Culpeper, and others close to these.

Missouri: Henry, Johnson, Osage, and Jackson.

When I find a small cemetery to transcribe, I usually have to machete my way to each stone, I then take multiple photos of each stone so I get the dates and spelling correct. I don't clean stones. So sometimes I just can't read it, sorry.

And one pet peeve that I have here is I have photographed entire cemeteries before, here in Alleghany and have gone back at a latter date to do an edit, and lo and behold - all my photograph's are gone, only to be replaced by Beckey Russell & Family (#46946721)'s photo's, if there is already a good photo there, why replace it?

RE: Newton Cemetery, Trigg Co., KY
Allan the Newton cemetery is on the same road as the Jenny Ridge Cemetery in trigg Co.
It is off the 453 hwy which is called the Trace that runs between the land between the lakes.
The Jenny Ridge road is called road 153.
after you turn on the jenny ridge gravel road then im guessing it is 2 miles down on the left side of the road sort of up on a small hill but you can see it from the road good.
Just look at the map for the Jenny Ridge cemetery in Trigg Co kY.

RE: Harrison Kimble #100630949
So, records in California that he contributed to (census and voter registrations), he submitted birthdates between 1820-1826.....

RE: Roberts Cemetery, Price Road
I found it accidentally, as it wasn't where I was told it was. I found it on the county GIS. It's actually in someone's front yard. The property owner was there when I drove up and he was very gracious. I'll be happy to take another photo.

RE: Bates/Baits
Thank you for your help. I am on family search and have been doing some digging there. I also am married into the Bates family. My father in law is the late David Bates. I never got the chance to meet him, he passed in 89 when my husband was a child. I have been working on my family history for about five years and a few months ago I started his family history and have made quite a bit of progress except for that mysterious Bates line! haha!

Hi Allan! I have been working on family history and a few months ago I got stuck on the Bates line and just left it alone and started working on other lines...well I am now back to trying to trace the Bates'. I have John Jacob "Jake" Bates and Sarah Elizabeth Bates as parents of Enoch. I do not have a maiden name for Sarah Elizabeth or any info beyond Sarah and Jake. For Enoch's wife, Rebecca Pendry, I have her parents as John and Lucy but again no maiden name for Lucy or any info beyond that generation. If you could give me any information or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much, Melissa
