Find-A-Grave site documents that Ann Maples Vantassel was buried 14 January 1917 at the Pauper Farm in Hardin Co. Is there any way to locate that site. Annie was my great grandmother. If possible, I would like to mark her grave. Juanita Trujillo

Can you identify anyone?

My mom and her brothers are Briton Stacey's relatives and pictured here. She is 90 and we would like any info about this picture you might have. She has Alzheimer's and it helps her to remember things. Thanks so much

Do you recognize this place?

I found an old photo of my family members crossing a river on a ferry boat. Do you think it could have been the Cave-in-Rock Ferry? The people in the photo are Erma and Ernie Feller, Raymond and Opal Jackson (my grandparents), Lawrence and Emma Durbin. Ernie, Opal and Emma were brothers and sisters (Feller) from Vandalia and Effingham Illinois. The back of the photo says “crossing on Ferry over to KY”. My Dad says the car was a 1935 Olds, so it had to have been taken after that. The other bank looked like many of the photos I had seen on your website.
