Bio and Links
I was born in Louisville, KY in 1948 and presently live in Western Kentucky. I graduated Pleasure Ridge Park High School and University of Louisville. My military service was 1968-1972 USN as HM3. I was employed and retired from the Kentucky Justice Cabinet as a Prison Warden for adult institutions.

My ancestry interest has been most of my life, but only active since joining the community.

I was sworn in as a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans this evening 26 Aug 2013 in Murray, KY.

Amos and Sarah Grider
Could not locate this gravesite, but I read in a local history book at the library written by ? Russell as a note (Amos and Sarah's graves were never located by the author. There is an old cem. Located near the farm once owed by Amos that has two inscribed tombstones, neither of which. Identified Amos or Sarah) If this is any help to you, I have a picture of the page I could send you. it does have a little more info about them

RE: Robert Everett Ash

I'm sorry, I did not know Robert Ash. The information I posted came from a website, will send you a link to it if you want to send me your email address, but I don't want to post it here. I'm a former corpsman as well, served in the early/middle 50's. Have a lot of respect for devil docs.

Grider Family Genealogy
We have much in common. I am the third-great-grandson of Frederick Grider and his first wife. Frederick and his family were early pioneers into southern Kentucky from North Carolina. I, too, graduated from Pleasure Ridge Park High School and the University of Louisville. My first cousin, James Arthur Grider (1942-2014) was an attorney in Louisville. He graduated from Suda Butler High School and the University of Louisville College of Arts and Sciences and School of Law. Our ancestors were Frederick Grider (ca. 1781-1853) and Sarah Perryman Grider (ca. 1787-ca. 1884). Our great-grandfather and great-grandmother are James Grider (1826-1909) and Mary Margaret Bryant Grider (1846-1939). How ae you related to our Grider family? What is your lineage?

That would be great, I would love the photos. Her grandson might be interested in putting a marker there.
