 Pictures shared by Pam Stamper Fitch

 Bud Bowling Cemetery

Each one of us present that day was taking pictures; but the pictures here are being shared by Pam Stamper Fitch. Thank You Pam

 The pictures you are looking at were taken on Saturday, November 17, 2001 at the Bud Bowling Cemetery located on the Stamper Fork of Canoe; Breathitt County, Ky.

(not an easy place to get to, I might add.....:-)

Markers were put in place for several of our Breathitt County Stamper ancestors. Purchase of the markers were made by the Stamper Family Association, Inc with funds received from the sale of the publication, Eastern Kentucky Stamper Kin: Some Descendants of James, Jonathan and Joel Stamper. Thanks to those that helped make this possible.... :-)

A 'big' thank you to our friend and cousin ... Stephen D Bowling for getting the markers up the really rough terrain in his own vehicle; and putting the markers into their proper location. During the afternoon, Stephen shared with us some of the history of burials and how some of the traditions came into being. A VERY interesting day!!!

This well was made by my great -grandfather, Henry 'Bud' Bowling, the son of Elizabeth Stamper Bowling, the grandson of Jonathan & Nancy 'Turner' Stamper, Jr. The Stamper's were well know for their knowledge of brick work on walls and chimneys. My thanks to Stephen D Bowling for showing me this well and others and for sharing his information on the Stamper's with me. This well is located on Henry 'Bud' Bowling property on Stamper Fork, Canoe, KY.
