Sorry I did not get back earlier...last week of Turkey season, Black powder
deer this weekend..I checked the KY Historical Society Library Sat for the
Easter file. Not much there at all, only about ten pages and you have it
all..There are no books on the cemeteries of Cumberland Co KY at the
library. I checked the genweb site and there is not much there either..It
may be next spring before I get down to that part of the state again. I will
keep searching about in the mean time. There is a cem. on the topo map just
to the west of the Arch.. interesting gravel or dirt road that winds north
then east up Bledsoe Creek then up over a gap and down another creek running
due west.. This must have been the original road and it went over a little
ridge or gap..I wonder if this is Easter Gap...have you ever been there? I
counted over a dozen cems on the topomap in that one bend of the river (next
one west). I will be like looking for a needle in a haystack without someone
locally connected to the historical society. I am sure someone has surveyed
those family plots in the past. I just need to find out who..
We will figure it out. I just takes time, especially when it is not close
by..I need to get my ducks in a row. Local contacts, permission from land
owners, etc. etc.... takes time. relax.. I got it now, make an outline, and
put pen to paper. That has to happen. So the nay sayers will have their
documentation to choke on.
