Lou Francis (Lewis E. Francis?)/Richmond Cemeter
I have added a photo of the lot where Lou Francis is buried in the Richmond Cemetery to his FG memorial. I also added a caption and speculative note to the photo. The caption reads as follows:
"The graves of Lou Francis and T. Joyce Francis may be in the center area between these gravestones. Unfortunately when Section B, Lot 39 was canvassed on 5 August 1999, no grave markers were found for them.

Speculative note: Lou Francis may be Lewis E. Francis (1829-1896), the husband of Emma (Bronston) Francis (1830-1871) and Laura (Estill) Francis (1850-1928).
T. Joyce Francis may be Thomas J. Francis, a brother of Lewis E. Francis."

I have sent a screenshot of my lot photo and caption to the Richmond Cemetery office and asked them to contact me if they find any information about Lou Francis in their records.

Lewis/Louis E "Lew/Lou" Francis
Thanks for your message. I too wonder if the Lou Francis buried in Section B, Lot 39 of the Richmond Cemetery is indeed the L.E. Francis who married Emma Bronston in 1852 and Laura Estill in 1874. With the information you provided and a little additional information I was able to find this morning I will contact the Richmond Cemetery office and ask them to check their old records.
Note: Most of the cemetery's records were destroyed in the a fire in early 1895. However, if L.E. Francis (Lou?) died in 1896 something should be available for him.
Weather permitting, I will try to get out to the cemetery today or tomorrow and check Section B, Lot 39 for any signs of Lou Francis' gravestone. Unfortunately the Richmond Cemetery Inventory of Burials, which was published in 2000, indicates that on 5 July 1999, when the lot was canvassed, no gravestone was found for either Lou Francis or T. Joyce Francis. I will let you know what I find.

P.S. Did you know that Laura and Lewis Francis were followers of a religious sect that many people in Richmond, Kentucky considered scandalous? It caused them to be dismissed from the Christian church they attended in Richmond. I do not know if that had anything to do with the mystery today about the Lou Francis buried in B39 or the fact that Laura Francis was buried in 1928 in an unmarked grave in I5. Incidentally, I sent you an SAC this morning to add Laura's plot information to her memorial.

Lavinia (Estill) Cunningham (#172569993)
Thanks. I knew the date and included it in Lavinia's bio. However, per your SAC, I have now added the newspaper article about the wedding to both John and Lavinia Cunningham's memorials.

RE: James Haslet (there were 2)
I surely will. I'm not in that area often and it was dark so u apologize for the mistake. The cemetery is not well maintained.

Harrison R. Hutson
I found a hand written marriage record of Harrison R. Hutson and Sarah Jane Whittaker married on 6 Aug 1866 in Lawrence County, Arkansas, do you think this could be the same person? If so then Harrison would be my GGGrandfather. Their daughter, Susan Belle Hutson is the Mother of my Grandfather Harry Hutson. I have not been able to find out who his father was, at this point I feel that he was born out of wedlock and used his Mother's last name. I did find where Harry named his father as Henry Hutson on his Social Security application. He also used the name Shuey, but census records and marriage records indicate that Shuey was not his father.

I would appreciate any information that you have that might help me finally get some clarification. I have done Ancestry DNA, if you are a descendant of Harrison I would love to know if you have done DNA so we could compare our results.

Thank you, Patsy Hutson Jaco
