Bio Photo I am interested in researching JETT/GARRISON families mainly in Iowa/Tennessee/Kentucky/Oklahoma/Missouri/Arkansas/Texas and Virginia and GORVIN/ORGAN/MURPHY families


"Dear Ancestor"

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Sid Jett Cemetery
Then this is the same cemetery. I have been there so many times over the past years.
A lot of my family members are buried there. I also remember going to the Mort Jett Store for pop and candy when I very young.
Mort would let my dad park the car at his store when we would go visit our grandparents, Brown and America Terry across the river.
Again thanks for your help for getting this cleared up for me.

Sid Jett Cemetery
I was doing research on my family who is buried in the Granville Jett Cemetery just outside of Athol, Breathitt County, Kentucky, on County Road 2470.
Then I came across the Sid Jett Cemetery which has the same names listed as being buried there.
Are they the same cemetery and have two different names?
Where is the Sid Jett Cemetery located?
There are two sides to this cemetery, and I was wondering if the left side is the Sid Jett Cemetery and the right side the Granville Jett Cemetery?
I have been there many times, and don't know of any signs telling me the name, but remember my grandma always called it the Granville Jett Cemetery.

RE: Charles Berryhill photo
Thanks for the info' Bobby. In the book, was the photo LABELED as Charles H. Berryhill? I want to be able to provide proof that this was him. Being a researcher, I have to make sure my sources are valid. I am not questioning you, as I hope you understand. Consider me a needy researcher. LOL.

Charles Berryhill photo
Hi there! I was wondering where you obtained the photo of Charles Berryhill that you have posted on his memorial page for Oakland Cemetery, Iowa City, Iowa? I am very interested in the source for this, as I am currently researching him for our local Kalona Historical Village. He was an early landowner of much of the land that eventually became Kalona, Iowa.
I want to be able to cite the source for this photo. Thank you so much for your help with this.
