Update on restoration project:
Hello to all you Descendants of Hubbard and Reuben Taylor.
I’m not sure if I told you, but we’d contracted this past summer w/ Stuart Joynt of Lost Art Stone Masonry in Winchester to do our Phase Two – Headstones restoration project. Stuart wasn’t sure when he would get to us, but he’s let me know that he has worked us into his schedule for the third week in November.
Stuart did an absolutely inspired job for Nan Taylor Price and her brother, Dudley Taylor at the nearby Jonathan Taylor Cemetery. Here’s a link which includes pictures of that project. http://www.lostartstonemasonry.com. I think we are darn lucky to have found such a talented resource.
And, I’m really happy to tell you that we also received a very generous and unexpected contribution toward our project from Bill Pumphrey, the owner of Spring Hill.
I think we would all agree that to have the Pumphrey’s financial support in addition the their strong commitment to preserving historic Spring Hill house, and the farm land, is extraordinary. Our sincere thanks and appreciation goes out to the Pumphrey family.
We had a little money left in our account after the completion two years ago of Phase One -Trees. Thanks to Bill Pumphery’s contribution, and more funds that have come in from others in this group, we have Phase Two – Headstones covered. with about 1K to spare. Again, thanks to all who have helped.
I’m hoping to get to KY while Stuart is doing the headstone work. I will make sure to send you all some before and afters. Hopefully we will all feel “inspired” when time comes to contribute to the final Phase Three – Fence.
Best to all.
Oh, please pass this on to any descendants you know that I may not have on the list. If you copy me, I’ll make sure they are included in the future. Thanks.
