I have been doing genealogy since my first visit with my sister in 1962 to talk with a distant relative about our family. Over more than 50 years I have sought to document my ancestors and help others do the same. It is a joyous work! |
Since 1979, I have been a resident of Jessamine County, Kentucky and participated with Howard C. Teater in recording the names of those buried in the many, small family graveyards as well as the public cemeteries in this county. Since then, many of the old burial grounds have been lost due to cattle grazing in the fields, vandals stealing and destroying the markers, and new subdivisions that have failed to maintain the burial grounds. I would be happy to help anyone seeking to find the burial places of their ancestors in Jessamine County, Kentucky.

Hi - I'm looking at your suggested edit to change the death date for Robert Leon ARRINGTON from 03 AUG 1953 to 04 AUG 1953. I see that the grave marker shows 04 AUG; however, I have no way of knowing when that was placed or who gave the information for it (so how reliable the source is). The Georgia Death Index, on the other hand, shows 03 AUG, presumably taken from the death certificate (which I have not seen), but we can be confident the death certificate was made very close to the time of his death. I have so far not been able to find another record that shows his death date. Have you found any other source showing 04 AUG as opposed to 03 AUG? (I ask this because I learned a long time ago the hard way that what is inscribed on a grave marker is not always accurate.) Thanks - John

Hello Cindy, from what youíve sent me about Congressman Patrick Hamilton Pope it poses an interesting puzzle? From all the reliable sources such as Wikipeda, Bioguide of Congress, etc. they all mention he as Patrick Hamilton Pope. Yes indeed the grave maker photo, with correct dates and info you sent, says Patrick Henry Pope. Iíve called the cemetery to inquire more information and was told they will check for further reference in the original files in this regard. Until something for solid is concluded either way in this matter, Iíll wait to make changes which also would include those to be made in Congress records as well. That could be a problem unless family and relatives help concur. Thanks,

Thank you. I've been confused by this. Wonder why U.S. Congress record has his middle name as Hamilton?

thanks Cindy..have a great day
|Maryann Smith||Frances Simpson|
Thank you for the information
Cindy, does the marker for wasington's wife say Frances Simpson? Other Brock relatives all have his wife as Vianna Frances Giles with marriage records.
I have never come across any that say Frances Simpson?
|Maryann Smith||Washington Brock|
I noticed that you have Washington Brock who is my 2nd Great Grandfather married to a Frances Simpson. His wife was Vianna Frances Giles. Unless he remarried but I show no record of that. I was just wondering if you have records showing him marrying Frances Simpson? He married
24 Oct 1855 in Rockcastle, Kentucky.

Thank you for your response about memorial # 134249913 and 134249974; however something still isn't correct.
Please see: Find A Grave Memorial# 100769935 that was entered by Todd Whitesides.
Is your (John Moseley and Frances Smith Moseley) a duplicate?

I would have preferred sending this privately but your page doesn't allow it. There are two postmortem photos of someone from the Brumfield family in Kentucky of which you created several pages. As strange as they are, perhaps they might be of interest to you or local historians in your area.
