I am trying to find out if Ben Way Cemetery in Bell County Kentucky might
be the same as Bratcher Mason Cemetery. The clues are:
Ben Way Cemetery:
Ben Maidon July 1849 - Jan 3 1920 Ben Way listed in death certificate
James Maden abt. 1870 - June 4 1926 Ben Way listed in death certificate
Middlesboro Ky Daily News
Wednesday June 11 1947
"Mrs Bertha Baker and Mr. and Mrs. Edd Hendrickson and Ruth Alley and son
Jackie, went Sunday to decorate at the Ben Way cemetery"
Bertha is Bertha Victoria Fuson 1st married to Edward Maidon. 2nd to John
J. Baker (who was the widower of Mary Maidon, daughter of Ben Maidon)
Edward Maidon died in 1918 and is buried at Bratcher Mason Cemetery
The two other women are Bertha's daughters by Edward Maidon. Meda m.
Hendrickson & Ruth m. Alley
Does anyone know of Ben Way? My guess is that Bertha and daughters would
be visiting her 1st husband and the father of the tow women with her, just
Thank you for any help.
