I believe this is my Great-Grand mother. I have only been to her grave once, but this picture seems familiar. I know her husband was in the war, and although there is a tomb stone for him next to her, he is not actually buried there. Is there anyway you could send my some information about the cemetery? Everyone who knew where she was buried has already passed away themselves.
Thank you.

All I can tell you about the cemetery is that it is located in Uniontown, Union County, Kentucky. I do not know if there is a sexton or who to contact about burials there.
