For several years, I have been meeting with some cousins and my Uncle Bob Duncan in Portsmouth where on a Friday night, 
we would enjoy a dinner and socialize together, talking about our Poage, Cooper, Duncan, Rife, Robertson, Grizzell, Dunn, etc. families.  
The next day, Saturday, we would all meet and car pool over to Greenup and Carter counties to look at some of the places where 
our Kentucky families lived and listen to the stories about those people and about the places we would be visiting.  

During our October 2006 get-together, I and my family stayed overnight on Friday night in Portsmouth, and then stayed at Carter Caves Lodge 
on Saturday and Sunday nights.
At that October 2006 get-together, my son Joe videotaped  Uncle Bob as he walked the Kehoe Cemetery which is located in Greenup.  
Uncle Bob either knew personally or knew about the persons buried there.  I would offer that video; however, Uncle Bob is dying of 
cancer and now doesn't seem a good time to make it public.
The other video I have, which I will send to you if your are interested, was an interview I did with Ed Rife and Everett Robertson, Jr. 
-- both agreed that I could send this video to libraries. We did the interview on the patio outside my room at Carter Caves Lodge.  
Ed and Everett were born and grew up in Greenup, and they shared their remembrances of their  ancestors, their families and the people 
who lived in the community--of the "life events" of some and the different relationships these families enjoyed.  I will list below the
