  1. Can you tell us about this last picture of flat tombstones with a chain around them? thank you very much Dottie Porter Himes

  2. Phyllis thanks once again for sending the older post on Old Holy Name of Mary Cemetery. I can tell how much both you and your husband enjoy the search of old cemeteries, and it makes it so great for those of us who live too far away. When my parents made many trips back to KY, I was about ten and of course, was not interested. Now thru your trips and your eyes and your great pictures, I can enjoy the tombstones of many of my parents relatives. I can never thank you enough. Dottie Porter Himes, Corpus Christi, TX

  3. I am descended From Col. Abraham Bowman, 8th Va. Regiment, Revolutionary war , and an early settler of Kentucky. His Great grandson, George Washington Bowman, who was my Great Grandfather, was also in General Morgans 2nd Kentucky Cavalry, and was one of Morgans Raiders. He had 3 brothers who served with him in Morgans command, and I have a tintype photo of the era, of my G.Grandfather with his 3 brothers who served with him. The William Bowman listed in this post as being in Holy Mary Cemetery must be an uncle of theirs, and brother to their father, Royal Marshall Bowman. Both Royal Marshall Bowman and his son George Washington Bowman were residents of Lebanon, Ky. This makes me an Nth cousin to any Bowman descendants, who may find their kin here. My fathers mother was Mary Elizabeth Bowman, late of Louisville, Ky.

    • Hey Mark,
      I am a descendant of Royal Marshall Bowman and Mary Alethia Riney. I believe they are buried in St Augustine Cemetery in Lebanon, KY. They were my 3rd great grandparents. I descend from one of their younger sons, Prince Martin Bowman.
