Cemetery searcher helps put grave sites on the map

GREENUP –Elwood Tackett often finds himself hunting for cedar trees and Easter lilies along Greenup County’s hillsides.

Tackett is looking for old, hidden family graves — and often the best way to find them is to look for the plantings people once used to mark burial sites.

In four years, Tackett has helped the county’s Genealogy & Historical Society archive about 35,000 names in more than 600 Greenup County cemeteries.for more click here
