Loren,

Glad to hear from you and yes Rozzell Chapel still exists. The church still stands and has an active membership. The cemetery is located behind the church, but as I understand it, there are no official written records of who is buried there, only the markers that have been erected. The Graves County Genealogical Society has had a Cemetery book printed, by Don Simmons, which has a listing of the folks buried there. It is the "Graves County, KY. Cemeteries", Volume 2. I would have to check with them to be sure that it is still available. There are several names listed of those who have no markers. There are Rozzells buried there, and I will be glad to e-mail you a list of them if you like.

As far as old newspapers, they are on microfilm at the Graves County Public Library, in Mayfield, KY. I'm not sure about what dates are available, however. I do know that they go back to 1904, because that is where I found the information on my Great Grandfather. My cousin has one of the original articles concerning his death, that has been handed down to her by her grandmother, who was our Great Grandfather's oldest daughter.

Hope this has helped. If I can help in any other way, just let me know.

Oh, and by the way, I have long since found the information concerning the Morefield family that I had listed here. In fact, I've also found another generation back from them. I'm now searching for the parents of Green Morefield, who was born in Virginia, and lived in Marshall County. Also, I DID find out that my Great Grandfather's name was indeed "John" and not "James". That took some time, because he usually went by "J.W.".
