Someone gave me information about the above about 2 months ago.
I didn't think it was in my line, so discarded it.
Now learned that B. Johnson & wife, Susan, definitely are part of our line.
This is what I need: B. JOHNSON & Susan are buried in I.O.O.F. Cemetery of Owenton, KY.
B is how he is known. ONLY "B"
I have found them on Census, but need When they died and When they were buried.
Thank you for help.
Eternal Rest is the name of a compilation of Owen County Cemeteries, it
shows W. T. Noel buried in the IOOF Cemetery at Poplar Grove. I don't know
if it was ever called Eternal Rest Cemetery.
I saw where you looked at the Kentucky death index for this person:
NOEL WILLIAM T 076 JEFFERSON 01-17-1912 004 01572 1912
You could look up the death certificate at the Kenton County library, or
have this guy do it for a fee:
The death certificate SHOULD give parents names and place of burial, but it
is only as good as the person filling out the information. Perhaps Noel
became ill and and died in a Jefferson County hospital.

If anyone can help this gentleman, please email him direct at
rnoel1(a)fuse.net I am just passing this along.
Is there a cemetery called Eternal Rest in Owen Co.?
I am in Kenton County, but health reasons wont allow me to drive right now.
I am 77 years old and started very late looking up genealogy. My grand
father was W. T. Noel, and have found several around that area BUT this one
has to be the one. He is buried in Poplar Grove and there is only his name
on the stone, nothing else. I never met either grand father on my Dads side
but research shows he was borne 1846 and died 1912. My grand mother on dads
side was a
: Noel before marriage, so I want to see if I am my own grandpa. They all
lived in Poplar Grove or Owenton.
I will try to get a cemetery card showing who buried W. T. and that should
show me if he is the right one. W. T.s mother was a Van Bibber a relative
through marriage to Daniel Boone. This could be interesting to me!
Just to let everyone know, I am leaving for New Orleans early tomorrow morning (7/13) and won't be back until Sat., July 23rd. If you have any contributions for the sites, please wait until I get back. I will be checking my mail but won't be able to post anything while I'm gone. Thanks!

Hello Owen County List! I just subscribed in hopes of finding some info out
on the Stringfellow line that I am working on. Does anybody have any info on a
John Stringfellow married to a woman named Cassandra (no last name as of
yet). I don't have a lot of info to go on. John and Cassandra had several
kids-one being Virginia (Jenny) who married William Webb. I am very interested in
her and her husband William Webb. (They are my gg grandparents) as well as her
parents. I joined a Stringfellow list earlier this week and someone sent me
some census information that I will post below in case it can help anybody
out. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks and hope to hear from somebody soon.
This is the email I got yesterday..I hope it is correct b/c it gets me one
Evidence indicates that the John Stringfellow in Ohio and the John
Stringfellow in Kentucky were not one and the same. I think that the John
Stringfellow that you are interested in is the Kentucky one. The 1850
Federal Census of Owen County, Kentucky shows John Stringfellow, age 50,
born Virginia, Cassandra, age 51, born Kentucky, and 10 children: 1. Robert,
age 25, 2. Virginia, age 21, 3. Martha, age 19, 4. John, age 16, 5. Thomas,
age 14, 6. Maleta, age 12, 7. Mary, age 10, 8. Elizabeth, age 8, 9. Zerelda,
age 6, 10. Elvira, age 4. They were still in Owen County, Kentucky at the
time of the 1860 Federal Census, and the children listed were Maleta, John,
Mary, Martha, Frances (female, probably Elizabeth from the 1850 F.C.) and
Elvira. That would indicate that Virginia (Jenny) married between 1850 and
1860. John and Elvira show on the 1870 F.C. still in Owen County, Kentucky.
John is a widower, and Elvira is still single. Hence, Cassandra must have
died between 1860 and 1870. Old John, age 77, appears as Jack Stringfellow
on the 1880 F.C. still in Owen County, Kentucky, but he has remarried to a
woman named Susan J. who is 48 years old.
Virginia historical records indicate that George Patton Stingfellow, born
September 17, 1772, in Culpeper County, Virginia, a son of James Madison
Stringfellow and Susannah Smith, migrated to Kentucky around 1811. G.P.
Stringfellow had a son named John, and I believe that your John is that son.
However, I haven't, as of yet, had an opportunity to verify that
