f ~ ~-NEWSr HARTFORDt KENTUCKYr APRIL 22t 2004r PAGE 4-B Since last week's report, we have had three - five inches of snow around the area, oh Tuesday, April 13. It was a surprise; caught most offguard. There were several wrecks, some had power out- ages, some tree limbs broken, etc. We were glad to have it melt off by the next after- noon. Spring has sprung and everybody is trying to do their farming, gardens and lawn work. Our sympathy to the fam- ily of Mrs. Lenora Daugherty, who died last Saturday, and any others of whom we may not have had word at this report. Word from Trent Burgess: he has been moved back to Frazier Rehab, in Louisville. He is now on a portable ventilatior which he can handle more easily. They hope to be able to start his therapy soon. He is in good spirits, as reported by has sis- ter, Trina, in e-mail, also by a phone call from his father, Bill Burgess and Lynn, who are still with him. If anyone desires to send cards to him, for a daily ba- sis mail, there at the Rehab center, rather than to Cromwell Post Office, you may send them directly to him at this address: Trent Burgess, 220 Abraham Flexner Way Room #405, Louisville, Ky. 40202. He really appreciates all the mail he has been receiv- ing. Also, the family appreci- ates some money gifts that have been sent and handed to them, to help out in their expenses of staying in a rented room for all these months, since February. Richmond, Kentucky on Eas- ter weekend. They visited their father, James B. Horn and his parents, Rev. and Mrs. Farris Horn. James is in very poor health, is on oxy- gen all the time now. Others visiting them in- cluded James's sister, Lucille and Roy Brandenburg, also another sister, Eulene and Eddie Lainhart. The Lainharts pastor a big church there in Richmond, where James and all his chil- dren attended together on Easter. Mrs. Horn prepared a big dinner and they all enjoyed eating and visiting together. Eva Bryant was really surprised last Saturday, when about 40 relatives and friends, came to give her a surprise dinner for her 85th birthday, which was April 16. Her nephew, Jackie Phelps, brought her a big hanging basket of flowers and his wife, Barbara had baked her a big decorated cake. She said there was such a crowd there, that some thought they were having a big yard sale! Some were gathered in the yard, playing washer games and talking together. All her family and many friends visited and brought her gifts, flowers, etc. Her friends, Red and Delores Smith, of Centertown, brought along the guitar and did some pick- ing and singing. She said there were four preachers there: Bro. Dopel and Bro. Sonny Whitely, Bro. Charles Bryant and Bro. Jeff Evans. She had phone calls from her cousin, Delsie (Phelps) Stewart, in Michi- gan, also her cousin, Mildred Clark in Butler County. Lula Belle Morris, of Bea- -, verDam, (sister to J. T. iistrap and Willd dean Cardwell of the Oak Grove community, and Willard Gilstrap of Horse Branch), spent a few days in the hos- pital, but is back home and doing reasonably well now. Remember to visit the sick and shut-in, also pray for those in confinement, those in the war zone and for our nation and it's leaders. Pray for the peace and safety of the many troops who are serving our nation in the military services. Chester and Marie Drake have been glad to have visi- tors from around the area. They get pretty lonely, living there in the Beaver Dam Health Care Manor, after being able to live at their home for all the 75 years of their marriage. Their daughter, Delois and Charles Smith, and their niece, Sally Reed and others have been good to stop in and check on them. Their son, Bill Drake, in Knighttown, Indiana is to have shoulder surgery this week. They are very much concerned over him. He has been in to see them twice since Chester's accident on March 15. Willodean and Glen Cardwell had a big day, on Easter, when all their family gathered in. Everyone of the whole family, except for a grandson, Matt Allen who is in Germany, and Crystal and Peter who are in the military in South Carolina. Betty and Chris Burden went to Elwood, Indiana re- cently. They saw some of the family there, but it turned so cold that they came back ear- lier than planned. They did visit the cemetery and put flowers on Betty's mother's grave. Melanie Boone of Pleasant Ridge, Kentucky, called her aunt, Erma McKinley, to re- port that she and her chil- dren, Rachella and Isaac, along with her sister, Kathy (Horn) Schroader, went with their oldest sister, Debbie (Horn) Brown and her grand- daughter, Madison Brown, to Everyone loves Eva, and she enjoyed seeing all of them. Birthday greetings to all who have birthdays in April. Some upcoming, known to this reporter, include: Beatrice Spencer, Dwaynetta Jones, Jay McKinley and Kay McKinley. Bill and Lynn Burgess celebrated their 35th Wedding Anniversary on April 19, 2004. Recent e-mail from Mar- garet (Howard) Fraser, in Florida reports the following concerning her parents, the late Orville Howard, and her mother, Mildred Howard, who is in a nursing center in Illinois: "Just wanted to take a moment to say hi to my Ken- tucky relatives. Mom is hold- ing her own these days in Il- linois. She doesn't recognize many people anymore. She seems to still recognize her kids. That is a blessing. I just wondered if you could put something in the paper for me. On Memorial Day this year, in Washing- ton, D.C., they will unveil the monument to WWII soldiers. I bought a brick with my dad's name on it to go on the wall in honor of him, Orville C. Howard, who served in the Army in WWII. His name is also on their Website and is listed in the guest book at the monument. I would appre- ciate that if it is possible. Dave is running for sher- iff and he graduates law school in August. What an exciting time for him. I have been helping with his cam- paign and loving it. My hus- band, Bruce, a Vietnam and Desert Storm Vet, has suf- fered a heart attack in De- cember and he needs a heart transplant. The VA through Shand's hospital here in Gainsville, Florida, put a dual pacemaker and a defibrillator in his heart a couple of months ago. He is doing a little better and has a little better quality of life. The VA seems to think he got a virus when he was in Desert Storm and it de- stroyed his heart pumps. The virus came from the germ w rfare that was burned:when they burned the oil in Saudi." G1 and had dinner on Sun- day, with friends, Robert and MaD" Doolin. He also visited Howard and Erma McKinley. Erna Flener and son, Bill Flener, visited the McKinleys last Saturday morning. They had been doing some yard work, and making plans for a garden. (Bill loves to raise gardens.) They enjoyed walk- ing around the lawn of the McKinleys and seeing all the flower beds, etc. Erna re- quested some Cock's Combs flower transplants when they get ready. The McKinleys also vis- ited with Jimmy and Debra Horn last week, Holly Kessinger, was also visiting them. Erma visited her grand- son, Larry Allen, Jr. and his children Sunday afternoon and took them their supper. Junior was busy putting down a "floating hardwood" floor in his kitchen, and with two children around to watch, appreciated not hav- ing to stop and cook their supper. Little Jeanna had at- tended church Sunday morn- ing, with her grandparents, Larry and Debra Allen. She went home with Erma and attended church Sunday evening with them. She loves to get out and visit, and ride around with them. She also loves to play games on Howard's computer! Howard had phone visits with his sisters, Rhea, June and Kay, last week. They are good to keep in touch with each other. To follow up on the report, in last week's newsletter, of the work being done to the Dennis- Turns Cemetery near Cool Springs, Kentucky. Calls and donations have been coming in from various locations, including Texas, Tennessee, Utica, and Ohio County, Kentucky. There are plans in the making to get the large fallen monument raised soon. They would also like to see the "circle drive" arotind the cemetery re- paired. It is impassable at this time; however, the lane up to the cemetery is in good condition. It is so good to see so many encouraged to help on this long time neglected cem- etery. Credit for this begin- ning goes to a descendant of the Turns family, Donna Enger, in Weatherford, Texas. In her family re- search, she discovered there was a Turns farm and cem- etery in Ohio County in a community called "Bull Run." She got on the com- puter, put out a message of inquiry, concerning it. A Betty Gaddis, in Florida, read the message, sent it on to Erma McKinley, whom she knew lived in Ohio County and from this beginning grew a sizable group of relatives who had an interest in the Turns family. Some of them met last September, with Donna Enger, at the home of Edna Morris in Cromwell. Donna says there are others in vari- ous states that are interested and have sent her cash do- nations to help with ex- penses. She is working through Erma and Edna who live in this area, and more able to see that the work is carried out. All who have contributed thus far are appreciated! Do try to visit the cemetery this summer and see how it is coming along! J. C. Eskridge and the Ohio County Road Depart- ment, who put up a new road sign (Dennis Cem. Lane), at the entrance from the Cool Springs Road, are especially appreciated. This will help when folks come to visit, and don't know exactly where to turn off to the cemetery, which is out of sight of the main road. Erma has met so many nice folks and distant kin through her family research. Recently she has met three more, an Anne Ahlert in Ar- kansas, and Norma Johnson- Stewart, in Indiana, both connected with the Archibald Stewart line. (They are from the line that Noble Stewart of Beaver Dam, is in). There is a Debbie Drescher in Indi- ana, who has corresponded with her on her Allen family line. Erma has been inviting all of them to attend Stewart, Hocker and Allen family reunion held at Ohio County Park, the first Satur- day in October each year. Anyone else that is inter- ested, remember the date (October 2, 2004) and make plans to attend! Sandra (Stewart) Kingery, of Beaver Dam, reports she is a brand-new "grandmomma!" Her daugh- ter, Christina Edmiston, in Japan, where her husband is in the US Navy, has recently given birth to a baby boy, Joshua Isaac Edmiston. Sandra reported that her family here in Ohio County met at her apartment for a "labor waiting room" party, the evening of the expected birth. Attending were her father, Noble St wart er sister, Beth Minton and her nephew Jeff Stewart. They visited, talked and sung some songs while wait- ing for the phone call from Japan. Sandra's son, Mirom Kingery and his wife, Lam, are expecting a baby girl sometime soon. For you who knew the former Kingery family sing- ers, known as the "Regals" who traveled cross-country singing, these are members of that family. The Homeschoolers Co-op of the Cromwell area, met at Oak Grove Church of God, one night last week. (Rosa Farmer is home schooling her grandson, Kevin Johnson. There are a num- ber of others in the commu- nity.) James Johnson picked up his sons, Kevin and Shawn Johnson, and took them to the park, Sunday. Ira and Donnie Goodman visited their sister, Mayme (Goodman) Calloway, at her home in Hartford Saturday. She is in very poor health. Her daughter, Becky, had been in the hospital, but is back home now.
