I found a Jan 2000 message from Nancy Perry on Owen Co. rootsweb concerning John W. Smither and Sally Head. My message to Nancy was returned as undeliverable. Does any on this list know how to contact Nancy or know anything about John W. and Sally? Appreciate any input.

Looking for any info on McCormick Cemetery located above Elk Creek on "Martin Place" (per 1978 reference found in Kenton Co. library). Per note about this cemetery, it was visited by LeCompte family of Owen Co. and family of famed "Ma & Pa McCormick" radio family. Ma & Pa were Alice and Clarence McCormick----he was born in Owenton in 1872 and died 1945 in Covington.
Any info on who is buried in the cemetery and/or about Clarence and Alice McCormick would be appreciated.

I am not familiar with the McCormick cemetery; however, I have Owen County
McCormick ancestors who may be connected to this family. In case someone on
the Owen Co. list can make a connection somehow, my descendancy is as
Hannah McCormick m. William Rodgers in KY in the very early1800's.
Their daughter, Mary Hanna Rodgers, who was born in 1808 in Mt Sterling, KY
died in 1880 and is buried in Owenton Cemetery, Section E.
Their daughter, Cassandra Orr married Samuel Hately. They are also buried in
Cassandra and Samuel's daughter, Mary Caroline Hately, married William Pryor
in the 1860's.
All these families had Owen Co relatives.
