|Tava Bronston ||RE: Lloyd Burke Bronston|
It wasn't my intent to create another listing for Burke, I was trying to edit his burial information. If you know how to remove mine please let me know. I was just trying to correct where he is buried and had put in a request for someone to hopefully photograph his headstone. No disrespect intended to you. I would be interested in being invited to your family tree. I am not a member yet of ancestry, but hope to be soon!
|Steven's Mom||Location of Edward Davis Cemetery|
Information from Cemetery Records of Madison County, Volume II, Southern Section, by Kathy Vockery, 1999. E38-Edward Davis Cemetery-Untended, with evidence of a new fence being built. About 150 yards northeast of 180 Moran Summit Road. Access through farm gate about 100 yards north of the driveway to the house. Follow lane past second barn to top of knoll and cemetery.
|Donna Black||John G. McClelland|
Since you were at this cemetery, and no one seems to be able to find it now, could you possibly remember if it looked as if his wife could be buried beside him. Her name was Lydia and I have been unable to find her resting place.
|Donna Black||John G. McClelland|
If it is your notation on his memorial that he is the right age to be Ephraim's father, you are correct. There are other of his children here, also. He is my 3 greats grandfather.
|Old Joseph||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.
|Old Joseph||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.
|Old Joseph||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.
|DR Detring||Greer Davis|
Are you related to the Davis Family of Jackson, MO
|Robin Scott Latoski||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.
|Ray Vick||James Monroe Foster b 18522|
Do you have any record of his marriage to Sarah Elizabeth nee Green?
