Tombstone Tuesday: Uncle Ern And Aunt Nettie

~Tombstone of Thomas Ernest and 
Annetta Mae "Nettie" Mattingly Abell~

St. Charles Cemetery, Marion Co., Kentucky
(Nettie is sister of my children's great grandmother Rose Lee Mattingly Logsdon)



  1. Hi, Lisa,

    I think it's great that you are doing the genealogy for your kids. I am curious: Are they related to David Logsdon who wrote that wonderful Civil War series of books "Eyewitnesses of the Battle of _____"? His research led to a marvelous discovery about my g-g-grandfather Nathan Wilcox & I wrote him about it. He was very sweet & gave me a bit more information. Just curious.

  2. Hi Jean...I do not know of the David Logsdon you mention although I have learned never to say that I (or my children) are "unrelated" because I've learned that somewhere in time they probably are. I once said to someone that I doubted we were related and about two years later I had to eat those words!
