Grave Marker Project
Family Assn, Inc has been using much of the proceeds from the
sale of the publication, "Eastern Kentucky Stamper Kin:
Some Descendants of James, Jonathan and Joel Stamper" to
purchase markers for unmarked or poorly marked graves of our
Stampers in Eastern Kentucky. To date, we have purchased 21 markers
.... either purchasing the markers outright; or sharing the cost
of the markers with the direct descendants of the deceased.
the cost of the markers for Isaac and Polly (Adams) Stamper with
Jeanette Huff. We also purchased two infant markers for the Stamper-Stewart
Cemetery; eight markers for John Whitt and Lucinda 'Hogg' Stamper
and some of their descendants in the Jent Cemetery in Letcher
County, as well as nine markers for various Stampers in three
different cemeteries in Breathitt County.
who do not know, 100% of the money we accumulate is used for
the preservation of Stamper history. As sales of the book has
slowed down, so has our ability to purchase more Stamper markers.
